Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching, and finding the perfect gift for mum isn’t always easy – especially in comparison to how much she’s done for us. Even with tight schedules or budgets this year, there are still so many ways we can make her feel loved and appreciated this Mother’s Day.

Find our top 5 gift ideas for any budget in our gift guide below.

Gift her some downtime

The best thing you can give a busy mum is a chance to relax with some well-deserved self-care time. To get started, consider gifts like face masks or under-eye gels and nail sets from Priceline or robes and slippers from Sussan.

Lastly, set the scene for relaxation with candles and tea sets from Woolworths, or fresh flowers from Florist with Flowers.

Make her favourite meal

Making mum’s favourite meal is always a winner. You can go big on proteins with roast chicken, whole fish or even legs of meat, or serve starters like charcuterie boards or seafood plates. Whichever way you go, Master K Butchery and CM seafood have you covered. Homemade sauces and marinades can take your dish to the next level (especially pizzas and pastas), so check out the fresh herbs and spices available at Carlingford Fruit World in-centre.

Just don’t forget dessert! If you’re out of time to make one, you can always find sweet treats at Bon Bons Baker, Sergios Cake Shop and Michel's Patisserie. To serve it all up, check out serving plates, glass sets and more from Target.

Give her a glam moment

Whether mum wears jewellery everyday, or just keeps a few special pieces as keepsakes – it’s a gift you can’t go wrong with. If you’re shopping jewellery for mum, consider the following;

-          Does she steer towards warm tones like yellow and rose gold, or cool tones like silver and white gold? 

-          Does she prefer minimalist designs or statement pieces?

-          What pieces is she usually wearing; earrings, bracelets, rings etc?

If you’re after more casual accessories, consider winter pieces to keep her warm, stylish sunglasses and hats, or handbags she can use all year round.

Find accessories, jewellery, handbags and more at Target, Sparks and Feros and Modernspecs.

Put it in writing

Sometimes, the best way to say “I love you” is by saying exactly that. Need some card-writing inspiration? Write about your favourite memories together or the moments that made you feel most supported. You could even make a list of all the little things she’s done that you’re grateful for.

If writing isn’t easy, at least finding the right card is, with a full range of Mother’s Day cards available in-centre at Nextra. You can also write a letter or poem with some special paper and stationary from The Reject Shop.

Let her decide

Still unsure? You can’t go wrong with letting mum choose! Beyond gift cards, consider gifting her an experience from Sophia Day Spa, Ocean Nails and Beauty, Elegant Touch, Pearl Nails and Element Skin Lab.
