Mother’s Day is this weekend on Sunday 9th May (in Australia and the majority of the world) and I’m here to share a few potential gift ideas for Mother’s Day. I love Mother’s Day. It’s such an amazing day to appreciate and celebrate the amazing mothers we have and other female figures in our lives.
I think I can speak for most of us that most of our mothers just want us to appreciate and acknowledge them for all the hard work they do. However, we all want to spoil and pamper our mums.
Beauty and Skincare
Whilst pricey, some of the more expensive skincare brands such as La Mer and Barbara Sturm. I personally do not buy high-end expensive skincare and makeup because it’s not for me. However, it’s nice to be spoilt for once in a while. And expensive things make us feel good. Opt for a La Mer moisturiser or a Barbara Sturm hyaluronic serum. I also think hand creams are a really nice gift. They smell amazing and are really nourishing on the hands. Go for a Byredo hand cream that will not break the bank! I brought this for my mum for Christmas and she loved it.
I think a patterned dinner plate or bowl set is a gorgeous and practical gift that can be really inexpensive. Bring colour into your kitchen. Charcuterie boards are also a really practical gift idea and you can probably personalise it as well if you purchase it from Etsy. You could also buy a KitchenAid and you can have a gorgeous baking session with your mum or grandmother.
Candles and diffusers are a really standard but aromatic gift that any mother can appreciate. I really like this candle that has ‘hey mum. mum. mum. mum’ written over it. I think it really encapsulates that mother and child dynamic we all had when we were younger (and still do – I still call for my mum all the time haha).
Treat your mum to a weighted blanket or even an oodie (blanket hoodie) with winter coming up. Treat your mother to spa package or make a cute little self-care package full of goodies such as candles, body lotions and perfumes.
I also really like the idea of a personalised photo collage whether that’s putting a few of your favourite photos on a desk display or fridge magnet. A puzzle set is something that both you and your mother can work on together.
I think experiences are the most memorable and special. As we grow older, we value materialistic things less and value spending time with our loved ones. For Australians, RedBalloon is definitely a great experience guide. Whether that’s having a high tea with your mother or favourite female figures in your life, a fine dining meal or even a hot air balloon or helicopter ride – it will definitely be a day to remember.
Go all out and here’s to celebrating our mothers!
