For many people, mothers play one of the most important roles in their life. From childhood through to adulthood, mums juggle many different jobs – drivers, cooks, cleaners, confidantes – and often without much thanks. Getting the right Mother’s Day gift to say thank you for everything she has done is important, but it can be tricky when mums often say that the best present is you!
If you’re struggling to find a gift she’ll love, Stockland Cairns can help. Whether your mum loves the latest fashion, is house-proud, or prefers some time out, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts this Mother’s Day.
Wear Is The Love
Clothes can be difficult to buy for someone else, so go for classic styles and cuts unless you know just what she wants. A relaxed-fit, printed top is super versatile, and can be worn with just about any skirt or pair of pants. A fine piece of jewellery in the form of earrings or a necklace is the perfect keepsake and a spacious new handbag is both on-trend and practical. In need of some items to dress up her current wardrobe? Accessories in the form of tortoiseshell sunglasses or a scarf will do just the trick.
Katies Stripe Layer Top $39.95, Michael Hill Small Knots Necklace $499, Millers (Campaign Image), Rockmans Amber Rose Adlington Sunglasses $24.95, Strandbags Marikai Mini Shopper $49.95, Suzanne Grae (Campaign Image), W.Lane Diamante Boarder Scarf $39.95.
Practically Perfect In Every Way
If anyone’s an advocate for practicality – it’s Mum. For the mums who like to keep on top of their health, go in with the siblings and get her a Fitbit Versa watch. She can listen to her favourite tunes, get personalised workouts and it will even track her heart rate. If your mum enjoys stretching after her exercise, grab a yoga mat or other exercise gear she might need from Lorna Jane. House-proud mums will appreciate updated, on-trend homewares in the form of macramé and mixed-texture cushions from Target.
Big W House & Home Round Jute Rug $29, Big W Fitbit Versa Watch $289, Big W VS Sasson Luxe Dryer Pack $39, Lorna Jane Iconic Sports Bra $72.99, Lorna Jane Yoga Mat $69.99, Specsavers Eco Cloud Frame $299, Target Freya Cushion $20, Target Macramé Cushion $20, Target Wire Lantern $15, Woolworths Décor Hike Stainless Steel Water Bottle $16.99 ea.
Bonding & Brownie Points
Really want to spoil Mum and maybe even score a few brownie points? Create a personalised experience and enjoy some bonding time together. Put together your own pamper pack, starting with a subscription to some of her favourite magazines, a cosy dressing gown, beauty products and room scents, and host a DIY spa day in the comfort of her home. For the foodie mum, prepare a picnic with some fruit and a selection of her favourite wine and cheese, or involve the siblings and create a bespoke feasting platter. If she loves shopping but is particular about what she likes, top up a Stockland Shopping Centre Gift Card and make a day of it together. You’ll enjoy the bonding time and she’ll get the gifts or experience you know she’ll appreciate!
