Every mother loves receiving the classics; flowers, chocolates and candles. However, you’ll earn more brownie points with a gift that has some thought put into it. Give a gift that lasts longer than just the day this year.
A touch of luxury where she needs it most
What’s one thing every mum needs but struggles to get? A great night’s sleep. Treat your mum to a bed she won’t want to leave this Mother’s Day (perfect for breakfast in bed too). Slip into the ultimate softness with 1000TC sheets and mirror her beauty with a stunning new quilt cover. Find a set for your mum this Mother’s Day in MyDeal home and garden.
Let her lounge around
Most mums are on their feet all day and getting them to relax is like asking a leopard to shed its spots. Show your mum she deserves a break by gifting her an inviting, relaxing armchair or ottoman to put her feet up once in a while. There’s a chair for every style from classic comfort to modern graphic prints and florals. Browse MyDeal furniture for the perfect lounge.
A stylish notebook for the organised mum
Leona Skene from Scratch & Jotter has an, “elegant notebook for your elegant mum.” Her spiral bound Appointed Workbook comes in navy and white. It’s a great choice for the minimalist mums out there who love a practical gift over a pampering one.

For the fashionable and practical mum
One necklace is great, two is even better but ten will put you in the running for favourite family member ever. The 10 Way Necklace, created by Maria Nicola, is just one product but it can be styled multiple ways. There’s even a video styling app to download on your phone so you won’t forget them.
“The 10 Way Necklace can be styled to create the perfect look in seconds because there's no fiddly clasps; just magnets. There are also pendants and tassels you can add to the 10 Way Necklace to create even more of your favourite styles making it a perfect Mother's Day present,” says Maria.

Put a twist on a typical brunch date
Brunch is a favourite with mums which makes it a great gift idea. But how can you make it special for Mother’s Day? Perth locals are in luck because they have Eat The Street walking tours on their doorstep.
“A Brunch Tour is the perfect Mother’s Day gift because it is an experience that you and Mum can share together. The delicious food and beverages are a nice touch too,” says Eat The Street owner Jacqueline Baril.
Spend a few hours with mum tasting all the best that Perth has to offer. If you’re struggling to find a date that works for both of you then there’s always a gift certificate that mum can redeem for herself. It might even be the incentive she needs for a quick weekend trip.

Surprise your foodie mum with a gourmet hamper
A regular hamper makes a lovely gift, but a gourmet hamper? Now that’s a treat. Foodies Collective have gift boxes with Australian products that are sure to entice every mum’s taste buds. Here’s why founder Kate Willbourn-Trevett loves this gift idea:
"The Foodies Collective Discovery Gift Box is perfect for your foodie mum. Thoughtfully curated with premium, undiscovered Australian artisan goods and a glossy mini-zine including recipes and interviews, all beautifully packaged and delivered straight to your mums door.
Take a few tasks off her hands
Between family and work commitments, most mums are majorly short on time. So why not give them back an hour or two in the day? Finer Details is a professional concierge service taking over all the little things like errands and organising so you can focus on the big picture. Co-founder Heather Gibson shared with us the true value of their gift:
“Mum’s usually put themselves at the bottom of the priority list, and if they work outside the home as well as in it there is even less time to manage the “life admin” and organisation of running a home.
Professional organising and taking care of the To Do List is what Finer Details do to free up Mum’s time so she can spend it doing something she actually enjoys. Gift certificates are available to allow Mum to decide what tasks to delegate.”
