Mother’s Day is this weekend and I’ve put together the ultimate gift guide.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
It’s time we stopped and sent all our love to our mamas! I have had so many requests to share a Mother’s Day gift guide. This is my first ever Mother’s Day gift guide, but you may be familiar with my Christmas and Valentine’s Day gift guides. Well, I skipped the requests for an Easter guide, since I personally have never given Easter gifts but Mother’s? I am here to celebrate them with you!
Below, you will find my hand picked ideas to share the love with your Mother. Most are products I personally use all the time and am so grateful to have in my life. I want everyone to experience them! Let me help you find the perfect gift. If your Mum needs a little self care moment, if she’s into cooking, could do with a style update or into her skincare, I got you! Plus, Mother’s can definitely treat themselves, you deserve it!
BEAUTY GIFT IDEAS
This is one that I’ve gotten to know over the last few months and I am getting the hang of styling with it in lots of different ways. I’ve been a fan of the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer for years now so I was really thrilled to give the Dyson AirWrap a go. It can dry, straighten, give you a salon-like blowout at home, and of course, curl. I’ve just bought some long curl barrels for mine and it is everything! I can make big bouncy waves or soft curls from wet to dry. It cuts the time down and protects hair from heat damage at the same time.
Let’s face it, Mum’s are short on time so this is one life and time saver.
A heavenly soft hydrating cream moisturiser that takes all the potency of the original Creme de La Mer in a lightweight formula. I’ve been using this beauty during the day over the last couple of months. My skin feels deeply hydrated, soft, and forms a nice base under makeup.
The Moisturizing Soft Cream deeply replenishes and protects skin combining kelp-infused Miracle Broth™ & antioxidant-rich Lime Tea. The famous La Mer Miracle Broth (in each product) is made by combining sea kelp with other potent ingredients & infusing them with energies of light & sound to intensify activity until they became a rich fermentation. The sea kelp is carefully harvested by hand from the top layer in the nutrient-rich waters off the coast of Vancouver Island in Canada. La Mer goes to great lengths to ensure it is harvested sustainably, as the kelp is home to an ecosystem. Lime Tea Concentrate is an antioxidant powerhouse that neutralizes free radicals to help protect skin from the visible effects of environmental stress & pollution.
A vivid flower on an island paradise. The red hibiscus is known for its enchanting petals and can be found in the heart of a tropical forest. With a touch of Jasmine Sambac and the warmth of vanilla, this intense solar floral draws you in with smoothness and sensuality.
Falling into the heart of a frangipani flower. Entranced by its solar warmth and sweet, airy lightness. Accented by luminous jasmine petals and exotic ylang-ylang. Underpinned by creamy sandalwood and topped with a fresh twist of lemon. Frangipani always reminds me of my Nana who loved the flowers and would have a bowl of them inside whenever she could. This fragrance is such a sweet reminder of her.
Hummingbirds and butterflies flock to the tempting blooms of the silk tree. Set a joyful mood at home with this irresistible blossom. Filled with Jo Malone London’s fragrance formula in a colourful new design. Provides constant scent for approximately 3-4 months. I’ve loved having this one in my living room to add a touch of scent.
I also noticed if you order directly from Jo Malone London you can enjoy a miniature candle (35g) with purchases over $130. Or spend $200 and receive a duo of miniature candles (35g each). Automatically applied at checkout. You are welcome, Mum will love those bonuses.
GIFT IDEAS FOR EXPECTANT MUMS
Over the past year, I have been buying more gifts than ever for friends who are expecting their first babies. It’s allowed me to get to know a lot of the best stores for all things babies and mothers to be. The Memo is the go-to destination for thoughtful gifts for all kinds of mums. I love that they have curated lists for things like the nursery, the hospital bag, recovery, and many more. It’s helped me to find some of the best gift ideas that are practical and helpful to send to the expectant mums in my life.
Where to start? I found it daunting too, so let’s dive in. With beautiful recovering essentials that will soothe her body postpartum. Every new mum needs a breast pump, and the Haakaa Breast Pump is beloved the world over for catching milk supply effortlessly. It’s portable so new mums can take it wherever they go and has no cords or loud pumping noises.
New mums also experience milk leakage, and a great solution to keeping them feel more comfortable is with reusable bamboo breast pads. Reliable and durable, reusable breast pads will help manage the impact of breast milk leakages.
The Mina Baie Kinney Backpack is a new Mum obsession- it’s a baby bag that is so not a baby bag. Made of vegan material that feels and looks like leather, the chic Mina Baie backpack is incredibly functional with 12 pockets, a spacious centre compartment and adjustable straps. It’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift sure to be on many expecting mums wish-lists.
The New Arrival Gift Set is a beautiful way to welcome a special newborn to the world. This curated gift set is gift wrapped by the memo and contains their most loved care essentials. The gift set includes; Dr. Bronner Four in One Soap, The Casey Co. Three Piece Brush Set, Oricom Digital Bath and Room Duck Thermometer, The Nail Snail Trimmers, and Being Bootie Balm. It’s bright, feel-good, and packed full of value (RRP $112.95) for $99.00. The Duck thermometer can double as a bath toy, the Bootie Balm is rich in calming properties like Lavender Extract, Olive Oil, Chamomile, and Calendula and can be used to treat cradle cap, nappy rash, and other minor skin concerns.
WELLBEING GIFT IDEAS
Of course, a treatment or spa day is what every Mum wants. Heaven. In Perth, I’d go no further than Bohdi J Spa’s. This Mother’s Day Bodhi J is running an epic prize draw too. The $3,000 draw prize includes a Kailis Shackles Necklace with lustrous 15mm Australian South Sea pearl PLUS $1,600 to spend at any of our five eco-luxe BODHI Spas.

Tailored to your unique skin type, this balancing Mukti facial supports skin function leaving your skin clear, restored, hydrated, and radiant.

Does your Mum need a little addition to her day? Golden Grind’s wellbeing blend contains a range of organically grown, wildly sourced, medicinal mushrooms that are scientifically dosed with a lovely balance of cacao and date. This blend can help with a wide range of bodily functions from cardiovascular health, energy levels, immunity, hormones, gut health, and the nervous system and contain Vitamin B’s and Vitamin D.
These specific ingredients have been chosen to immediately boost your immune system whilst providing vitamins and minerals. The perfect thing to add to a smoothie, for mums who make breakfast on the go.
Every single ingredient in this tea will aid in bringing about calming, sleepy, and soothing benefits. Valerian Root can help you fall asleep quicker and may improve sleep quality and works well with the other natural remedies. Chamomile is one of the oldest, most widely used, and well-documented medicinal plants in the world and has been recommended for a variety of healing applications and been frequently used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety, nightmares, insomnia.
This tea has been putting me to sleep over the last few months so easily. It’s a dream. She will love it.
A big handbag to carry a bit of everything is something all Mama’s need. Last Christmas I gave my Mum a tan leather bucket bag from Boden and it was just so good to see her out and about wearing it. This suede beauty is a big shoulder bag that fits all kinds of things in it. It has a generous size strap too, which avoids digging into shoulders. Your Mum would love one of these!
So, what are your plans for this Mother’s Day? I hope you get to spend it with your mum, or as in my case, have a good phone call. Miss you Mum!
