Our top gift ideas for Mother’s Day

mother's day

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday 12 May and we’ve got some great gift ideas for mum. Check out these ideas for mums, grandmas and great grandmothers; whether they like kitchen goodies, beauty buys or pampering products, we’ve got something to suit everyone. If you’re on a super low budget, make her breakfast in bed and pick her a bunch of flowers from the garden – she’ll love it just as much 🙂

Kitchen Goodies

  1. Allan Scott Marlborough Blanc de Blancs NV (RRP $33.50)
    Treat your mum to the finer things in life with a bottle of chilled bubbly. With distinctive lemon flavours, the Méthode Traditionnelle is complemented by a hint of tropical fruit and honeycomb finish. See the full range of Allan Scott Wines in Glengarry wine stores or online at www.allanscott.com.
  2. Russell Hobbs Perfect Boil Kettle (Red, RRP $189.99)
    Russell Hobbs Perfect Toast (Red, RRP $249.95)
    Sharing a ‘cuppa’ and breaking bread are age-old traditions, however, there’s no doubt that burnt brioche or a tea that’s just too hot can really ruin the moment. Now mum can have her tea and toast just the way she likes them. Perfection is possible!
  3. Whitcoulls Black Recipe Folder (RRP $49.99)
    Help mum accessorise her kitchen with Whitcoulls recipe folders. These are the ideal place for recording favourite recipes and filing loose paper. In a convenient A4 size, cooking will be a breeze with this durable (and wipeable!) folder that is made to last.
  4. Farmers Creative Tops Floral Mugs (RRP $9.99 each)
    Show your mum how much you care this Mother’s Day with a stylish new addition to her home. These flower patterened mugs from Farmers are the perfect gift to make mum’s day.


Beauty Buys

  1. L’Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipgloss (RRP $27.99)

Designed with the texture and shine of gloss, with the long wear colour of a stain, the Shine caresse is lighter than a lipstick and more comfortable than a traditioner lipgloss. Get the great ‘just-bitten’ shine kiss colour, with great luminous shine. Available in eight, easy to wear, candy-coloured shades – there’s a shade to match your every mood (the colour shown here is 103 Marilyn).

    Treat mum to velvety, soft skin every day! NIVEA’s new Irresistibly Smooth Body Soufflé is specially formulated for dry skin that needs a little extra moisture.

  3. OPI Matte Top Coat (RRP $24.90)
