#GiveBack a precious memory to your mom this mothers day

Every year just when Mother’s day is around the corner, you’ll find so many tempting deals and discounts. However, the best presents has to be the personalized ones rather than buying something on discounts. You/your mom will cherish a personalized gift for a long time. 

Mother’s Day this year falls on 14th May which means it is high time to get something for Mom. While on Facebook I’ve stumbled upon TCS Sentiments contest post with a touching line that says, “It’s time to #GiveBack the things that she gave up for you”. I was so touched that I can’t stop myself checking out what TCS sentiments is offering. It is all about the connect a brand makes with you. 

Mothers Day #GiveBack campaign

BTW, there’s a contest still running on their Facebook page to share an image recreating a memory when your mom gifted you something. You can win a shopping spree by TCS Sentiments. So do participate coz winners are being announced everyday. Check TCS Sentiments Facebook page for more details. 

While listing down the best personalized things that you can get for mom this mother’s day, I’ve narrowed down my choices to this wonderful box by Tang via TCS Sentiments with 20% off if I pay through Jazz Cash. It’s a win win situation. 

The best personalized gift it is coz you can send a message to mom in a bottle. We often can’t describe our love for mom and this is the best way to do it. 

Don’t shy away from sharing your emotions and Gift her the best out there. The box won’t cost you much but your mom is going to cherish the memory it will create for a long time.

Dalda Foods celebrated #MothersOfPakistan this #Mothersday

What brand comes to your mind when you think of #MothersDay or moms? I came to think of Dalda instantly because of their eternal tagline “Jahan mamta wahan dalda” . It’s good to see trusted and age old brands like dalda stepping into social media turf to interact with their consumers. They quite often have giveaways and competitions going on with hundreds of prizes, literally.

To celebrate Mothers day this year, a dedicated social media community called Mothers of Pakistan has been formed to honor mothers, where people from all over Pakistan were requested to share a message in text/image/video form for their mothers to make them feel special.

The objective of this campaign was to pay a heartfelt tribute to all the Mothers of Pakistan and honour the efforts they make for their children at each phase of life, not just one day.

Dalda Foods and TCS Sentiments has joined hands with this community by offering giveaways. Displaying those wishes compiled in a video on important city roundabouts with oh so pretty OOH was heartwarming.

While coming across one such display My mom felt crying watching all those beautiful mothers day messages by people. Sad that mine doesn’t display at that time😢 but it was worth the effort.

Dalda food has made a beautiful TVC for the campaign while celebrities were seen wishing their moms and Mothers of Pakistan. What I’ve liked the most about this campaign is minimal branding while the focus was on occasion more. Kudos for executing the campaign without overpowering it with the brand/product. No wonder that the campaign was all over social media.

Chores: A Mother’s Reflection on the Modern Household

Lounging comfortably on the sofa, sipping through her coffee, this Mother’s Day Rania* is lost in thought and misses her mom. Thinking about the golden memories of her sweet ammi, her convocation photo proudly displays the joy and affection they shared. Reminiscing old times Rania realizes how her mother was by her side every step of the way, it was due to her unwavering and constant support that Rania was now a successful professional, married and a mother of two.

She remembers how her mother used to cater to her every need while managing a busy career and being the lone homemaker in an era with far less technological advancement. Back then in the times of Rania’s mother, it was probably a challenge to bring up her children but now with the aid of technology Rania stayed organized and prepared her routine perfecting the balancing act between work and family life.

Gone were the days when her mother used to come back home from work and gave herself away to the kitchen and household chores for hours at a stretch. Rania doesn’t need to do any such thing and still seems to manage her household efficiently by using electronic home appliances.

Rania just had to check out the latest Buzzfeed food video and assemble the ingredients to be cooked in her AirFryer Microwave. The food stayed healthy and she kept a close check on the calories her family was consuming. Unlike her mother who used to keep a list of what she would cook every day or ringing up Rania’s aunts and grandmother to ponder over “What to cook?” 

Rania remembered that every Saturday her mom would sit with her helper and every week she had to direct her for the weekly laundry. It was a drudgery task which would leave her mom drained and ruin their weekend as a family. Rania on the other hand would put her favorite TV show to stream online while she sorted the laundry pile and then plugs in the washing machine to literally ‘clean her dirty laundry’ while she catches up on her favorite shows or spends time with the kids.

One of the perks of technology that Rania enjoyed most was the flexibility to work from home. Unlike her mother she doesn’t have to leave her sick kids home with a relative or maid and worry about them the entire day at work. Thanks to her laptop and the internet Rania is always connected and on the go in terms of her work, without missing out on the lives of her kids.
Juggling different roles from being a caregiver, home financier and sometimes a chef is what mothers have been trying to do for centuries.  It brings tears of joy to Rania’s eyes as to how much her mother did for her every single day, till her last breath and what would she not give up to hug her mother once more today. Today she vows to be as amazing of a mother to her kids as she was blessed with….

Mothers are truly blessing, so this mother’s day don’t forget to hug yours because that would probably make her day!

Mothers day has become a cyber gala of celebrations in past few years. Brands tend to come up with unique offers, contests and lots of prizes to engage their consumers.

What brand comes to your mind when you think of #MothersDay or moms? I came to think of Dalda instantly because of “Jahan mamta wahan dalda” aur “Tang Maan k hathon ka pyar” .
