3 Types of Gifts Mum Will Love This Mother’s Day

When thinking of the most important people in your life, there’s someone who’s always right at the top of the list: Mum. Being a mum is a lifelong, full-time commitment and it’s often a thankless job. From infancy all the way through to adulthood, Mum has held your hand through life and always been there to hug you when you cry. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, start thinking about the perfect gift to say thanks to the lady who raised you. Whether your mum loves fashion, is fan of all things practical or favours time with you above everything else, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts for spoiling her this Mother’s Day. 

Wear is the love

Clothes can be a difficult thing to buy for someone else, but are often one of the most appreciated gifts. Make sure to get Mum’s sizing down pat and stick to timeless pieces and classic silhouettes. A tailored houndstooth blazer is a great option—both on-trend and versatile. A comfy, relaxed-fit knit is practical and can be worn with just about any skirt or pair of jeans. If you’re after a pop of colour for Mum, opt for red. Bright, vermillion red is without a doubt the colour of the season. Suzanne Grae stocks a beautiful range of coloured knits that’ll warm Mum up for winter. An embellished pair of boots and a cross-body bag are also perfect options. If your mum loves a pop of colour, you’re sure to find the perfect piece in Saba’s new collection available at David Jones. A beautiful cashmere scarf is a great investment piece and something she’ll wear all winter long. Pair any of these pieces with quaint gold hoops from W.Lane to add an extra something special to her gift.

Practically Perfect In Every Way

In terms of practical gifts, it’s all about buying her the things she needs, but would never buy for herself. The little things you spoil her with are often just as appreciated as grand gestures. Whether it’s some new serving plates from Robins Kitchen, a stunning new scarf or fresh skincare products, buy her something that’s carefully thought out with her in mind. If you have a bit of a higher budget and would like to spoil her this Mother’s Day, Hennings Showcase Jewellers has a diverse range of timepieces with something for every mum. A new dressing gown, heat pack and chocolates wrapped together will create a beautiful pamper pack that she’s sure to make use of again and again through the chilly months.

Bonding & Brownie Points

If all Mum really wants is to spend some quality time with you, these gifts are perfect. Surprise her with some breathtaking blooms from Envogue Events and book in to get a manicure together at Professionail. Alternatively, catch up over coffee at Caffe Cherry Beans before making an appointment at Australian Beauty Clinic for a spot of luxury pampering. We all know mums rarely get to have decent ‘me time’, so a subscription to her favourite magazine and some salon-approved hair products will go down a treat. If you really want to spoil Mum, top up a Stockland Shopping Centre Gift Card and hit the shops together. For an added sentimental touch, capture your activities on a polaroid camera from Australia Post; that way, you can both remember the day for years to come.
