Mums are the most important women in most people’s lives. It’s a job that can be demanding and often seems thankless. From the days you were an infant all the way through to adulthood, Mum is always there for you whether it’s as a chef, a cleaner, a cab driver or a confidante. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, now’s the time to start thinking about the perfect gift, even though she might proclaim she ‘doesn’t need a thing’.
If you’re struggling to find that special gift to thank your mum for all she does, we’re here to help. Whether your mum is a fashion fiend, a fan of all things practical or just likes spending time with you, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts for spoiling her this Mother’s Day.
Wear Is The Love
Clothes can be a tricky thing to buy for someone else, even if you do have their sizing down pat. Stick to classic pieces and flattering silhouettes. A comfy, relaxed-fit cardigan is super versatile, and can be worn with just about any skirt or pair of jeans. An embellished pair of boots or black cross-body bag is both on-trend and practical. 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 studs from Pandora and a MAC lipstick in her favourite colour to add an extra something special to her gift.

Practically Perfect In Every Way
Practical gifts will always be appreciated by mums. The little things you spoil them with are often just as appreciated as grand gestures. Mimco has a range of beautiful phone cases that are both practical and on-trend. A perfume or luxury skincare item will pair well with this beautiful Salt Bath Tea available at SEED Heritage. If your mum’s a fan of all things outdoors, Rockwear has lovely options for mum from caps to yoga wear and tote bags. On the home front, update her abode with some cushions from Big W and a throw rug from Harris Scarfe. If your mum is more of a foodie, a serving platter is the perfect gift and will allow her to create the perfect spread.
