When it comes to shopping for Mother’s Day, it’s important to get it right. From the day you come into the world all the way through to adulthood, mums are always there for you. They’re chefs, cleaners, cab drivers and confidants—it’s often a thankless job. Say thank you this year with the gift she never expected but is sure to love. If you’re struggling to find the right gift, we’re here to help. After all, what do you buy for the one who says they ‘don’t need a thing’? Whether your mum is a fashion fiend, appreciates practical gifts or loves nothing more than spending time with you, these are the perfect gifts for spoiling your favourite lady this Mother’s Day.
Wear Is The Love
While it’s notoriously tricky to buy clothes for someone else, gifting the latest fashion can be one of the most appreciated gifts, especially by mums. Consider putting together a head-to-toe outfit for your mum and buying all the pieces she’ll need to rock a new style this winter. A houndstooth blazer is the statement piece of the season. Paired with black boots and distressed jeans, Mum will be ready for anything. Add some timeless accessories in her favourite colour and she’ll be touched by the amount of effort you’ve gone to. When selecting pieces, opt for classic silhouettes and make sure to check her sizing before you go shopping.

Practically Perfect In Every Way
There’s nothing mums love more than a practical gift. Warm up her winter with a relaxing heat pillow and a new dressing gown from Bras N Things. For the mum who loves all things beauty, a new makeup case, brush set and perfume will go down a treat. When selecting a fragrance for Mum, take note of the perfumes she has already and ask the helpful staff at Priceline to help you try and match the scent profile to something else she’ll like—whether it’s fresh and fruity or oriental and woody. If she loves all things homewares, some new throw pillows for the couch or bedroom will be much-appreciated. A visit to Target and MyHouse will help you tap into this season’s natural texture trend that combines both macramé and woven fabrics.

Bonding & Brownie Points
If you’re in the business of really spoiling mum and earning a couple of brownie points while you’re at it, why not create a personalised pamper pack for her? Combine a massage voucher from Body Tone Massage, book her in for a manicure at Nails Hub and purchase a twelve-month subscription to her favourite magazine. If you know your mum would prefer nothing more than spending time with you, we recommend making a day of it to really show her how much you care. Start with a morning coffee catch up at Piccolo’s on William before a blow dry appointment at Hairhouse Warehouse. Spend the rest of the day shopping with a pre-purchased Stockland Gift Card. You’ll enjoy the bonding time and she gets the gifts, gadgets or experience of her choosing.
