Watchonista’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide For #StayHome Enjoyment
Our Mother’s Day gift guide provides some great ideas on how to make lockdown just that little bit less tedious for your dear mom.
Most of us won’t be able to spend Mother’s Day with our mothers this year due to COVID-19 confinement, making a well-thought gift all the more important. Here are some ideas to provide you with inspiration.
JinGoo Wireless Birdcage Speaker by Daqiconcept
This beautiful and unique object combines a Bluetooth speaker with ambient light in the form of an elegant bird in a birdcage.
While birds symbolize freedom and happiness, the name JinGoo is used in ancient Chinese literature to describe the sound of birds calling.
Place it in your sitting room or hang it from a tree in the garden to listen to your favorite tunes or Watchonista’s Spotify Playlists. The JinGoo comes in several different designs, each with its own distinct colors, materials, and story.
