Though we’re sure the best gift you can give your mum for Mother’s Day is your company, a little something extra wouldn’t go astray. Spoil her this year with some of the best gifts and experiences from our Mother’s Day gift guide…
The Bose QuietComfort 35 Headphones feature some of the best noise-cancelling technology available. They’ll make an ideal gift for your mum, whether she wants a super high-quality sound experience, or just needs to tune out for a while. The wireless headphones feature soft earcups that remain comfortable with prolonged wear, and the battery gets you up to 20 hours of wireless listening. Microsoft is running a Mother’s Day special of 10% off these headphones until 14th May.
This handy Leather Pouch by Von-Röutte comes in the elegant and unique colourway of Absiko Olive. It’s complemented really nicely by brass hardware and the embossed bronze foiling on the front. With a separate interior pocket, this pouch is perfect for when she only needs to carry a few essential items.
Rita Mu is a Sydney-based ceramicist whose designs are beautifully minimal and unique. Her Classic Matte Black Tumbler is one of our favourites, and is sure to be a hit with your mum. Coming in a set of four, these tumblers feature a classic look with a functional design. Though they’re made to be used for drinking, they’d also make for a cool vase or decorative piece.

Impressively designed, with an emphasis on form and function, a S’well water bottle is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. Not only do the insulated bottles help in keeping you hydrated and healthy all day, but for every Wood Collection bottle sold, the brand will plant one tree, plus they’re helping UNICEF provide clean drinking water to those who need it around the world.
If your mum stopped getting photos framed and making albums when she got a smartphone, it’s time to get her back on the printed photo horse. The HP Sprocket is a really cool device that prints photos directly from your phone. It’s portable and connects via Bluetooth, so she can snap a photo and print it out straight away.
Give your mum the gift of a good sleep-in. The Good Sheet’s Percale Sheets are made from 100% Egyptian Cotton, which is durable and breathable. They’re soft, luxurious, and made to get better with age. The set features a fitted sheet and two pillowcases, with a flat sheet available separately, and comes in a range of understated, neutral colourways.

There’s a certain something about writing things with pen on paper that tapping away on a keyboard or touchscreen will never really match. Even better when the pen you’re writing with is a luxury one, like the Century II by Cross Pens. With a beautiful rose gold finish, this pen will not only look super impressive on your mum’s desk, but it’s also actually a total pleasure to scribe with. We’ve partnered with Cross Pens to give away one Century II pen. Head to our Instagram or Facebook to enter.

If her bookshelves are already full to the brim with no space for any new books, it’s time to get her an eReader. The Kobo Aura ONE is a great option. It features 8 GB of memory, which translates to roughly 6,000 eBooks. It’s super lightweight and even waterproof, making it great for everyday carry as well as the perfect choice for holidays too.
Jurlique has its very own farm in the Adelaide Hills, where most of its natural ingredients are planted, grown, and harvested for their broad skin care line. The brand’s leading ingredient is rose, with a wide range centred around the fragrant flower. The Deluxe Set includes three indulgent products from the range, as well as a cosmetic bag to put them in. If your mum isn’t so fond of rose, there are a number of other special gift sets available for Mother’s Day too. Jurlique is currently offering a free gift with purchase when you checkout until 14th May.
For mums on the go, the Osaka Satchel by Toffee is a great gift. The functional bag features secure spaces to store valuables, plus an interior padded pocket to safely hold a tablet. The satchel is made from a durable, water-resistant waxed canvas and leather, and also features a padded shoulder strap for comfortable carry.
New York-based brand Joya has created a product that’s unlike any perfume your mum has had in the past. The perfume oil is housed in a unique, hand-crafted porcelain bottle that will look impressive on display, long after the perfume itself has run out. Applied via a striking ‘wand’, the perfume oil delivers a subtle yet captivating scent.
If your mum prefers experiences over traditional gifts, the Sydney Seaplanes Mother’s Day Package is a great option. Spend the day flying over Sydney’s coast, taking off from Rose Bay and flying over the harbour and beaches. If she’d rather stay on land, Sydney Seaplanes also has a special brunch package available at their Empire Lounge in Rose Bay. Enjoy a four-course meal and drinks with views out over the water.

Whatever her hobbies and interests, there’s probably a magazine out there your mum would be interested in reading. A subscription is a great gift option, and one that keeps giving year-round. iSubscribe has a whole host of limited time specials on for Mother’s Day, as well as a bonus $10 gift voucher on offer for purchases made by 19th May. This is a great last-minute gift idea if you’ve left it late this year.
The Peninsula Hot Springs in Mornington Peninsula, Victoria have a range of special Mother’s Day packages available this year. Treat your mum with some truly tranquil and decadent experiences. There are beautiful mineral pools, relaxing massages, and indulgent dining options all available to enjoy. Best of all, most of the packages are for two.
A nice versatile option for daily use or special occasions, the Ashbury Clutch by Oroton is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. The simple black option is a classic choice, matched well with light gold hardware. The leather bag comes with an adjustable and removable leather shoulder strap as well as a shorter chain one for versatile carry options. Further functionality is delivered thanks to a large main compartment and a few smaller pockets.
Don’t let your mum get caught out in the rain. Having been tested in some very rough conditions, BLUNT umbrellas have made it through to become one of the best umbrellas available. The Metro style is just as strong as the brand’s flagship brollies, but is collapsable and compact for easy, everyday carrying.
