BWA’s Top Tips To Shopping Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day is looming (May 13th for those of you who don’t know!) and the pressure to find my mum the perfect present is mounting.

Like many of you I am sure, I take great joy in buying presents for the people I love- almost more than I do receiving them.

Being an online gal through and through, I find it much easier to source pressies online than in store- you miss the lines, can shop from the comfort of your living room and can often score free gift wrapping… job done!

I generally get my mum a huge stack of gifts as it’s one of the only days of the year she lets us spoil her- I always make sure to reorder her favourite magazines subscriptions as part of her present.

 

 

Luckily for me, Magshop is giving away a $26,000 holiday to Tahiti and LA and all you have to do to enter is snap up a subscription for your mum…sold!

I thought I would put together my top ten gift ideas to make sure you are in Mum’s good books:

1. A Spa Treatment. Hands down best thing to give anyone really- who doesn’t love a massage, facial and pampering day.

2.Candles. My favourite are Glasshouse or Voluspa. If you want to go a little quirky, Insight has some really cool artistic candles too.

3. A Hermes scarf. Need I say more?

4. Macarons– these days there are aspiring Zumbo chefs on every corner, just do a little research into the best macaron buys for your city.

5. Dinner for two– I like to send my mum and dad on romantic dinners every now and then!

6. A pair of classic sunglasses. I always opt for Prada or YSL for my mum and Sunglass Hut has a huge range, plus they have stores across Australia.

7. A good book. My mother is an artist so I like to source lovely coffee table books to inspire her creatively- there are always some great book ideas over in Grazia Australia‘s shopping guides.

8. A photobook. It may sound a little cheesy but mums love cheesy! You can get one made at Apple online or other photo stores for relatively cheap- its a lovely memento to keep for years to come.

9. Flowers. Find out what your mums favourite flowers are, my mum’s are lilies or natives. Nothing brightens a room like a beautiful fresh bunch of flowers.

10. Breakfast in bed. Sadly I don’t live in the same city as my parents but when I do get to see them, this is a lovely way to say thank you for all the years of lifts from ballet and school lunches!

What are some of your ideas for awesome Mother’s Day gift ideas?

    Great ideas! My Mum is so difficult to find things to spoil her with – she loves practical things, or some cheesy romance novels as her guilty pleasure!

    my mum is so hard to buy for but we always try to make the day really special. Always start with breakfast in bed, some flowers and the paper. Hope all the mothers out there have a great day and all first time mothers day mothers feel special!
