Moms don’t often get the recognition they deserve. They feed us, clothe us, and love us unconditionally — and they do it all without expecting anything in return. If you want to make sure your mom knows she’s the light of your life, match the type of mother she is — the Trendsetter, the Homemaker, the Techie, the Fashionista, or the Fitness Buff — and find a unique Mother’s Day gift to truly light up her day.
Always looking for ways to add the latest piece of decor to her home, the Trendsetter simply wants to make her house a home — provided it’s both in style and her style. The Trendsetter scours social media, posting her own favourite pieces (and selfies, of course!), bookmarking her must-haves, and following social media influencers to find out what’s on trend.
Make her day by giving her the gift of instant ambiance: the White and colour ambiance Starter kit allows her to tap into 16 million colours and thousands of shades of white light, giving her the ability to adjust her home’s decor with just the tap of a button. And with plenty of lighting fixtures to choose from, she’ll have enough content to fill her Pinterest board for years to come.
Tip: If she’s already got her Philips Hue smart lighting system set up, gift her a few Hue Outdoor lights - pedestals, outdoor lightstrip, ground spots and more. These stylish and weatherproof outdoor lights are perfect for bringing her outdoor space to life this spring season.
Like the Trendsetter, the Homemaker focuses on the home, but this time it’s all about making it the most streamlined, efficient home. Her idea of the perfect home is one that makes everyday life that much easier for everyone — she’s the leader of the household, so she knows the routine of every member of the family.
On Mother’s Day, turn the tables and give her a gift that will make her life easier: automated white smart lighting with the White Ambiance Starter kit. Voice-controlled lights give her a helping hand when hers are full, while routines take care of lighting up the room so she can focus on her family.
Tip: Homemaker moms are often worried about the safety of their family, so pairing an Outdoor sensor with outdoor lights allow her to feel safe when she — and her beloved family members — get home at the end of the day.
These moms defy the “parents just don’t understand” mentality and often take their love of technology beyond the typical tech lover’s latest model phone or super-fast computer; they’re fascinated by more unique gadgets, especially when they make home life more streamlined.
The White and colour Starter kit perfectly complements the Techie’s love of home automation and the latest trends in all things smart. This Mother’s Day gift gives her smart lights that do what she wants, when she wants — all with the touch of a button in the Hue app — and the freedom to place smart bulbs in any fixture in her home.
Tip: Tech-loving moms are always up-to-date on the latest trends in tech, meaning she may already have the White and colour starter kit. If she does, the Hue Play — which she can place around a TV or computer monitor to level up her media experience— makes the perfect addition to her Hue collection.
This mom loves all things sleek, swanky, and high fashion, and her love for gorgeous design goes far beyond clothing and spreads to all the corners of her home. The Fashionista is always aware of the latest trends while keeping the classics in mind.
Instead of trying to live up to her high-fashion taste, give her the opportunity to dress her home in beautiful warm to cool light with the Hue White ambiance Starter kit. With Philips Hue, she can have the ideal lighting as she chooses her outfit, does her makeup, and gets ready for a night on the town.
Tip: Mirror, mirror on the wall: what’s the best Mother’s Day gift of them all? The award winning Adore mirror, of course! Give her the vanity of every woman's dreams, with a wide ring of warm to cool light that illuminates her face and a modern design that enhances her home in the even the most unexpected places.
The Fitness Buff
Staying in shape is an important part of this mom’s life. A healthy lifestyle is second nature, whether she’s on a run, whipping up a homemade meal for the whole family, or finding her zen with a yoga session at home.
The White ambiance Starter kit provides the ideal light for any part of her workout routine, whether she’s getting ready, mid-sweat, or cooling down with a Shavasana.
Tip: She needs light that can keep up with her, making the Hue Go the perfect companion for her fast-paced lifestyle. She can set this portable lamp to the Energize light recipe to amp herself up the morning of her next 5k or use the Relax setting to wind down after her evening workout.
