Now, that we have entered into February the next big day to celebrate is the Valentine’s Day on 14th , February. Now, who says that just because I am a mommy of two I do not have any expectation on Valentine’s Day. The best thing is that with age and passage of time, my expectation and interpretation about Valentine’s Day has evolved.
Gone are the days when this day was all about lovers and partners. At this phase in life, I have realized that Valentine’s Day is more about expressing your love to your best friends, your partner, your siblings, your kids. In short anyone whom you love in your life. So, naturally with expression of feelings comes the art of gifting.
As a mother I often feel that people run out of options to gift to plus size moms. My own sister in law is plus sized and she always gets gifted batuas and hand bags on all occasions as people consider the same to be a safe bet. So, here are a couple of Valentine ’s Day gift ideas for plus size mommy dears.
Valentine Day Gift Ideas For Plus Size Moms
Plus Size Clothes:
Days are over when there was nothing fashionable to wear just because you are plus sized. The new age fashion industry has evolved and in recent times many curvy and plus sized women have also walked the ramp. In fact there are so many retail brands that offer plus sized clothes.
Westside has a plus sized collection called “Mia “, Pantaloons also has its own plus sized collection called “ All” and so on. Here the sizes start from triple XL and goes on to 7 XL. The collection is available in both Indian as well as western wear.
In case, you are no sure about the size then you can go for safer options like cape, blazer or shrugs. The price range is also pocket friendly making sure that the gift is appreciated without pinching your pocket.
Spa Vouchers :
Who does not like to indulge in some spa and relax. One thing I know for sure irrespective of the fact whether you are thin or fat as long as you are a mother you must be dreaming of spending some alone time, indulging in yourself ,pampering yourself and doing nothing.
Imagine 2 full hours of lathering exotic lotions and treatments on your skin, relaxing in them and pampering yourself. 2 full hours away from your little one when you finally get some alone time for yourself. We all would love something like this. So, a spa voucher for a plus sized mommy is another great option for gifting.
Just because we are mommies does not mean that we do not like to dress up. All women love dolling up and applying make up on themselves. Now, when it comes to Make up sky is the limit. There are so many things and so many brands to try out.
You can go for budget range brands like Maybelline, Color Bar, Revlon, Lakme and so on. You can also opt try out a slightly expensive range from Chambor, MAC, Sephora and so on. In terms of what to gift in make up, there is a plethora of options to try out. However, the safest option is a lipstick. If you are planning to buy lipstick online, do consider few things.
The current trend in lipstick is eclectic and bold colors like green, blue , black to give a gothic look. You can also opt for the evergreen option of red lipsticks. Nothing looks better than crimson lips. This is an amazing option to gift to plus sized women this valentine’s day.
We all love to smell good. Specially , when we are always covered with baby poo and pee, it is important to keep a good perfume handy. You can again choose from a huge array of undertones. You can choose the local brands like Skin from Titan that has sweet undertones of the famous Cool Water from the house of Davidoff that has lemony fresh undertones.
If you have run out of options to gift a Valentine’s Day to your plus sized valentine, then gifting a perfume is always a good idea. We all love to smell good and flaunt a huge collection of perfumes.
Dinner dates are always cherished by all. It’s a great way of expressing one’s feeling and letting others know that you care for them. You can actually opt for a candle light dinner date for your beloved. Mothers hardly get time to dress up and go out for a pampered full-fledged meal. A dinner date is actually a great way to make your plus mommy valentine feel loved and wanted.
No matter what gift you are planning to gift to your plus sized mommy, ensure that you make her feel special and wanted. Pamper her with cards, flowers, soft toys and the works. Help her with the kids so that she too can enjoy the day.
Wishing all of you Happy Valentine’s Day gift shopping !!!
