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

There’s no denying that mothers are the most important people in many of our lives. From the day you come into the world all the way through to adulthood, mums wear many hats—chefs, cleaners, personal drivers and protectors—it’s often a thankless job. When Mother’s Day rolls around, it’s important to find the right gift to thank them for all that they do. But what do you buy for the mum who says they ‘don’t need anything’?

If you’re struggling to find a gift she’ll love, we’re here to help. Regardless of whether your mum is a stylish sweetheart, a lover of practical gifts or just appreciates spending time with you, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts for spoiling her this Mother’s Day.


Wear Is The Love


Clothes are notoriously difficult to buy for someone else but are often one of the most appreciated gifts. When buying for your mum, stick to classic silhouettes in timeless colours unless you know exactly what she has her eye on. A comfortable, relaxed-fit cardigan is such a versatile piece and a thoughtful buy coming into the winter months. While most mums own at least a few pairs of jeans and plenty of shoes, give her wardrobe a 2018 update with ripped-knee skinny denim, ankle boots or heeled mules. If you’re after something that makes a bit more of a statement, bold accessories in the form of tassel earrings, an embellished clutch or layered necklace will elevate any look.

Practically Perfect In Every Way


It goes without saying that mums value practicality. A beautiful new serving platter and modern salt and pepper shakers will go down a treat. Prepare mum for winter with a fluffy new robe and a heat pack that’s perfect for both cold feet and sore backs. Add a soft throw pillow and you’ll have put together the perfect night in for your mum. Even better if you can colour coordinate the gift! If your mum wears glasses, a new pair of metal frames will always be much appreciated. Putting together a beautiful charcuterie board with fresh ingredients from Coles and Woolworths is the perfect way to help Mum out with the entertaining for Mothers Day, especially if she’s expecting extended family over for lunch or afternoon tea to celebrate the day.

Bonding & Brownie Points


If you really want to spoil mum (and score a few brownie points too), create a personalised experience and enjoy some bonding time together. Compile a pamper pack, filled with all the things she deserves, but would never buy for herself. Bonus points if this pack involves the two of you spending time together. Start with booking in for a manicure at L’Amour Nails or Pearl Nails. Add a blow dry appointment at Hairhouse Warehouse as well as a subscription to her favourite magazine and the pamper pack will really start taking shape. If you’re looking to really spoil her and have a bigger gifting budget this year, you could even head to Flight Centre and book a weekend away; Adelaide Hills is perfect for the wine enthusiast.


If you know she loves to shop but is quite 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 gets the gifts, gadgets or experience of her choosing.
