A Mother’s Day gift guide

Want to show how much you care this Mother’s Day? Here’s some inspo for unique gift ideas. 

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday May 8, and if you’re racking your brain for gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place. 

Chocolates and flowers are great, but chances are you’ve relied on that option for a few years now. A personal, meaningful or unique gift can be a great way to show your mum how much you care. 

Of course, mums come in many different forms — maybe it’s your long-time neighbour, best friend’s mum, mother-in-law or grandmother. Whoever you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day, here are some great gift ideas to inspire you. 

An Experience to remember for a lifetime 

Does the mum in your life love experiencing new things? Perhaps she’s the sporty or outdoorsy type? Red Balloon has a whole host of Mother’s Day experiences to suit all tastes. Whether it’s an overnight getaway, spa day, hot air ballooning, sky dive or high tea, you’re sure to find something she will love. 

Creature comforts she will love

A lot of mums might roll their eyes at the idea of slippers as a Mother’s Day gift, but hear us out. Winter is coming and who wouldn’t want a cosy pair of sheepskin wool slippers to slide on at the end of a long day? If she loves comfort, then maybe a pair of sheepskin moccasins that she can also wear outside is just the trick. 

Gifts to satisfy style queens 

Say ‘I love you’ in style with a beautiful bag or purse. After all, you can never have enough bags. The best part is there’s so much to choose from. You could go uber luxe, with something like this Ville XXS Balenciaga Handbag or opt for a handy Capri bag that she can throw all her work stuff in. 

Or, if you’re looking for a gift that has meaning and tells a story, Michael Hill’s fashion collections jewellery are made to do just that. Choose a piece from the Spirits Bay collection to reflect your mum’s strength and resilience or pick a pendant designed to offer protection.

Home is where the heart is

Your home is your castle, right? So, if your mum has been dreaming of sprucing up the place with some new furniture or home decor items, you may be able to help her out this Mother’s Day. 

Egyptian cotton sheets, a slumber-inducing mattress or a whole new set of dinnerware — there are endless options when it comes to homewares. Maybe you could even help get that home improvement project underway at long last. Whether you offer up your free time and DIY skills or call in the professionals, a gift like this will be remembered for years to come.
