Mothers – they play a very important part in many people’s lives. From childhood to adulthood, mums juggle many roles – chauffeurs, cooks, cleaners, confidantes – and it’s a job that can often be demanding and seem thankless. Getting the right Mother’s Day gift to say thank you is important, but it can be a difficult task when most mums say they have everything they could ever need.
If you’re struggling to find a gift she’ll truly appreciate, we are here to help. Whether your mum loves the latest fashion, thinks practicality is key, or just likes spending time with you, we’ve gathered up the perfect gifts for spoiling her this Mother’s Day.
Wear Is The Love
Clothes can be tricky to buy for someone else, so go for classic silhouettes and styles unless you know exactly what she wants. A comfy, relaxed-fit knit is super versatile, and can be worn with just about any skirt or pair of pants. A quality watch is a keepsake she’ll treasure for years to come, and a cross-body bag is both on-trend and practical. Want something a bit more fun? Bold accessories in the form of a felt hat or scarf is a great way to dress up any outfit.

Practically Perfect In Every Way
Most mums appreciate that practicality is key. For hair care, styling tools and accessories, Hairhouse Warehouse is your go-to. Give the gift of a hair care pack and new hairdryer, and you’re guaranteed to be on the receiving end of plenty of hugs and kisses. If she’s in need of some new perfume, find out her favourite scent and head into Terry White Chemmart. On the home front, update her abode with some stylish cushions in faux fur, a fun message of typography from Woolworths, or a wall-hanging in this season’s macramé trend from The Reject Shop. Have something sentimental you’d love to engrave? Mister Minit can help with gift ideas, or engraving a sentimental message on a piece of jewellery or special gift.

Bonding & Brownie Points
If you’re keen to really spoil mum (and score a few brownie points too), create a personalised experience and enjoy some bonding time together. Create a pamper pack, complete with a subscription to some of her favourite magazines, some luxe skin care products and essential oils and hold a DIY spa day at home. More of a foodie mum? Grab some fresh fruit and a selection of her favourite wine and cheese, and take her to the park for a picnic. If you’ve got siblings to involve, why not plan the experience together and create a bespoke feasting platter for everyone to enjoy? If you know she loves to shop but can be particular about what she likes, top up a Stockland Shopping Centre Gift Card with your budgeted amount and make a day of it together. You’ll enjoy the bonding time, and she gets the gifts of her choosing. If you’re looking to really spoil her and have a bigger gifting budget this year, you could even head to Flight Centre or Escape Travel and book a weekend away; Adelaide Hills is perfect for the wine enthusiast.
