Mother’s day gift ideas for every type of mum
May 02, 2019 By Southpoint Tuggeranong
Mother’s Day only comes around once a year but your mum cooks for you, cleans up after you and just generally worries about you 365 days. She may nag, but she loves you deep down, so make sure this Sunday 12 May you show her how thankful you are – no matter her tastes.
FOR THE COOL MUM
Apple Air Pods, $229 from JB Hi-Fi. She knows more about pop culture than you and asks you if you’ve heard Travis Scott’s new song before you even knew it was released. The only thing missing is a cool tech accessory from JB Hi-Fi so she can look as hip as she really is.
FOR THE SENTIMENTAL MUM
Your mum didn’t stop hanging things on the fridge because you got too old, you just stopped making her things to hang on the fridge. Paint, draw, collage or just cover something in glitter for her this Mother’s Day. Kaisercraft has everything you need to make something from the heart.
FOR THE CHIC MUM
Pandora Rose Logo Heart Earring Studs, $99 from Pandora. Your mum is a gem and she deserves the stones to match. Get her something that reflects her personality and shows her how much you care, like a pair of rose heart earrings from Pandora.
FOR THE FOODIE MUM
Shout her a delicious brekkie at Café Milligram, where she can choose from Bircher muesli, crab benedict, or baked eggs. Not early risers? Grab lunch or dinner at the newly opened La Pasteria. Classic pizzas, house made pastas, and a dessert menu including a Nutella calzone – sounds like a feast worthy of a hungry mum to us.
FOR THE BEAUTY-OBSESSED MUM
Olaplex Hair Perfector, $49.95 from Hairhouse Warehouse. Is her hairdryer older than you? Do her locks need a little TLC? Hairhouse Warehouse has all the answers. Has she run out of her favourite face masks? Maybe she needs a new signature scent? Hit up Priceline for all things beauty.
FOR THE MUM WHO NEEDS A LITTLE SELF-CARE
Show us a mother, and we’ll show you someone who’s in need of a little R&R. Treat her to a massage at Acupuncture and Oil Massage Clinic, where they specialise in treating headaches, aching muscles and more with traditional Chinese medicine.
FOR THE MUM ON THE GO
Guess Havenhurst Shopper Bag, $139 at Strandbags. Get her a new tote at Strandbags so she can look stylish on the school run or grabbing a coffee on the way to work. All handbags are currently 30% off for Mother’s Day, so you can use those few extra dollars to get something equally stylish to wrap it in.
