Mother's Day 2024: Brands Celebrate Moms Through Heartfelt Messages

Mother’s Day, a cherished occasion worldwide, is a heartfelt tribute to the mothers who shape our lives with their love and guidance. This day is observed on the second Sunday of May and celebrates the profound influence of mothers worldwide.

Every year brands come up with unique ways to pay tribute to mothers on this special occasion. This year brands such as Amazon, Bandhan Life Insurance, Zee, McDonald’s, boAt, Noise, BIBA, Pocket FM, Asian Paints, Aditya Birla Capital, and others embraced the creative route to create touching campaigns that allowed us to contemplate the profound impact of the presence of mothers in our lives.

boAt

boAt came up with a ‘whimsical’ campaign to resonate with the cultural phenomenon surrounding “Mother Taylor’s” esteemed title as the “mother of the generation” among her devoted GenMZ fanbase, the Swifties. boAt’s campaign urged fans to not only honour their admiration for “Mother Taylor” but also to cherish and connect with their own mothers.

In partnership with JioSaavn, ads will be featured during Taylor Swift’s songs. These ads, voiced by a motherly figure, will remind listeners that while Taylor is phenomenal, their own mothers are equally wonderful and deserving of attention. The message encourages setting aside electronic devices to spend quality time with their own moms this Mother’s Day. A podcast-style reel featuring Saloni Gaur has been put together ft. her mother and Dadi (grandmother). In it, she discusses lyrics by Taylor Swift and juxtaposes them with life lessons from them.

Through their out-of-home (OOH) component, a significant emphasis has been drawn on how both Mother Taylor as well as our real mothers have been mothering. Urging people to spend and celebrate their real mothers too, just as they have been celebrating Mother Taylor, all playfully and humorously. For example, Mother Taylor’s lyrics hit us hard as she exclaims “I am a real tough kid”. Our mothers have also been speaking the same words of wisdom in her own style as she exclaims “Tu toh mera sher puttar hai”, serving as a gentle reminder to listen to our mother’s advice too.

Duroflex

Duroflex launched a heartfelt campaign for Mother’s Day. The campaign, “Kaam ko kaho #9KeBaadNo” aims to address the issues that the late-night work culture imposes on their mothers. Most mothers find themselves working beyond official work hours, which gets in the way of their time to unwind and relax after a long, tiring day. Late-night work calls and emails disrupt their much-needed rest, impacting their health and overall well-being. With the simple mantra “No More Work after 9 p.m.,” the brand seeks uninterrupted sleep for our hard-working mothers. Duroflex uses an interesting role reversal, where they empower children to safeguard their mom’s precious sleep.

The film showcases a mother finishing up last-minute work, ready to log off for the day. As she shuts her laptop and retires for the night, the phone buzzes with her boss calling. Looking at her mother peacefully resting, the 10-year-old kid takes it upon herself to ensure her mother’s peaceful sleep is undisturbed. She picks up the call, adjusts her voice, and mimics the call-progress tone to share an innocent yet affirmative message that conveys firmly how one less work call can help her mom get a sound and undisturbed sleep.

Through this, Duroflex also aims to pave the way for a much more supportive society that gives women’s health the priority it deserves.

The film captures the true sentiment behind Mother’s Day and takes viewers on a journey that explores the concept of multitasking through a series of ‘fun’ challenges.

However, the real test takes place when they’re asked to multitask, replicating the daily realities of motherhood.

While others struggle to hold their objects while performing their usual activities, one participant, a mother, remains undeterred. We see her effortlessly organise a room while holding a flowerpot, showcasing the unmatched strength mothers possess. The emotional climax reveals the secret of her resilience: Her 1.5-year-old child. As the camera pans out, the audience realises the significance of a mother’s strength of love.


Apart from these brands such as croma, godrejhub, Haldiram’s, Reliance General Insurance and others also came up with compelling and creative campaigns.
