by Fashionlady


Last year we had suggested you lessen your mom’s burden by organizing your wardrobe for Mother’s Day. Even we had suggested you gift her a luxury handbag if your budget permits to pamper her on this special day. Click here to know more. This year, we’ve come up with some new ideas to help you choose a great gift.

How about gifting a custom-made saree this Mother’s Day?

While the idea of gifting luxury handbags can be pricey, affecting your budget, there is always an array of other options to go through. No matter whether your mother is traditional or loves the trending fashion, saree is always the best bait as Mother’s Day gift. And if last year, you really spent a fortune in a luxury handbag for your mom then this year you can surprise her with a saree. Not just any fancy saree from the market but I have an idea to help you with your gift.


How about picking one of her old sarees and revamp it with some embellishments or embroidered brocade? With an array of designs now available in the market with different embroidery and lacework, you can choose one that’s best suits the existing saree design. Try to pick a plain saree and customize it with an additional brocade or random Kundan/crystal works on the bodice. Your mom must be having pattu saree from her initial marriage days. You can refurbish it carefully with the help of a reliable tailor who has hands-on experience in personalizing sarees and blouses.


You can make your gift look perfect by even customizing the blouse of that saree with matching embroidery work. And if the blouse is not available then you can buy her a new embellished blouse in princess cut design to make her feel special on this day.

What is the most appealing part of a saree? The color, the print, the pallu, or the border? While all these factors combine to create a great attractive saree, the saree border nonetheless is the most visible part, which accentuates the beauty of the saree. And if the saree is plain then the works on the blouse substitute the beauty of the saree brocade.


Not only in the select physical stores in your neighborhood, but saree border designs are also now widely available online.  You’ll get designs suited for almost every type of fabric. Like for silk and pattu sarees, say Kanjeevaram sarees, you’ll get exquisite highly ornate border designs. You can buy an embellished design with intricate zari work and can make even a mundane saree look glamorous instantly.

You can buy a border design made of lace for an old Georgette/chiffon saree to give a modern twist to the 6-yard traditional outfit. There are borders available, being made out of Zardosi, sequins, Kundan, silk threads, and beads. All you just need to pick an appropriate design for your mom’s saree and give it to your tailor for a makeover.
