On this special day to honour our mothers, biological or not, finding the perfect gift doesn’t have to be hard work.
With Mother's Day just around the corner and the last year being tough on everyone, we think it’s only fitting that we pay a little more attention to treating the special person in our lives this year. Mums love to know we appreciate them, and a bunch of flowers or breakfast in bed usually hits the spot, but we wanted to look outside the box and find some exceptional gifts ideas.
We’ve done some research, and we think we have come up with a few fantastic options:
For the ultimate in comfort and especially fitting here in the Southern Hemisphere with Mother's Day falling as we head into winter, these cozy, fuzzy and warm half blankets/half hoodies, will have your Mum deep in snuggle-town.
In a range of colours and prints and even available in family packs, we think these beauties from The Oodie (1) are any mum's dream.
I think we can all agree that the one thing we wish we could do more is to treat ourselves to a massage or spa treatment. Just being able to sit back and leave all the work to someone else, in itself, is like heaven. Like many self-care opportunities, heading to a spa can be bumped down the priority list in our busy lives.
Taking the organisation out of our Mum's hands and treating them to a few luxury moments at her favourite spa will not only let her know how much you appreciate her, but it will also leave her feeling pampered and relaxed with some well-deserved me-time.
Fressko coffee cup
How can we not go past one of our own beloved products?
We know all mums love a cute coffee mug. Do you remember decorating one when you were a kid? - ‘BEST MUM EVER!’ While we don’t aim to replace these classic DIY beautiful pieces of ‘art’, we think a portable, reusable coffee cup that we can throw in our bags and haul to the cafe is another great idea.
The made by Fressko range of insulated, spill-proof, scratch-resistant cups (2) come in a vast range of colours and two convenient sizes, perfect for any Mum.
If you have trouble picking the perfect cup for your loved one, we also have handy digital gift cards (3), leaving the choice to her.
Cocktail recipe book
If your Mum loves a wee tipple, a fantastic idea could be a recipe book covering the basics of a good cocktail, making that evening treat a little more special.
We can’t recommend more, the book How to Cocktail (4), the instructive cocktail book that covers all the classics.
Always a winner, something that smells nice is never a mistake. Candles are a huge market, but some are better than others.
We love the subtle but long-lasting range from Ecoya (5). Made naturally from soy, these gorgeous candles smell unique with scents such as Sweet-pea and Jasmine or Lotus Flower. They also look beautiful and are readily available with stockists a-plenty.
DIY clay art kit
A tactile, soothing and calming experience, pottery can give space for your mind and even relieve stress. Besides the health benefits, working with clay is fun and an incredible creative outlet for anyone with a love for art.
We love these DIY pot making kits from Only T (6). With no experience necessary, these kits set up an afternoon of pure, messy joy.
Tea selection box
Us tea lovers out there are so lucky to have such an array of different types at our fingertips these days. If your Mum is an avid tea drinker, we love this tea selection gift box from Pukka Herbs (7). Including 45 sachets of incredible, organic herbal teas selected from the Pukka range, there is a tea for anytime or type of day in this beautifully presented box.
While you are at it, why not compliment it with one of made by Fressko’s infuser flasks (8), with a unique 2 in 1 filter, meaning your Mum can brew her tea on the go and most importantly, keep it hot!
With these being just a few of the many options out there for Mum, we can make this an extra special Mother's Day this year - simply because they deserve it.
