There’s something for every mum, so get yourself organised and scroll through our top 10 gift ideas for mum.
Is a toaster really a Mother’s Day gift? Damn straight it is, especially when it looks as beautiful as this. The Plissé toaster is pure class and sophistication, and pairs perfectly with the matching Plissé kettle. Aesthetics aside, the toaster boasts plenty of functionality, with a defrost, and bagel setting, and 6 browning levels. What can’t this toaster do?
Isle Of Blanc Parfum
How would we describe the range of fragrances for Australian brand, Vahy, without going overboard? Honestly, good question. We think Vahy does it best, with words like intoxicating, oceanic, spicy, sophisticated, and evocative. And with those adjectives swimming through your mind, we’ll subtly suggest how perfect the Vahy range would be for mum this Mother’s Day.
Artist Essentials Kit
If mum is on the creative side, or has been meaning to take up an artistic hobby, well, we’ll leave this one here. Containing everything needed to start the exciting illustrative journey she’s always wanted to undertake, the kit is beautifully boxed for exquisite presentation – just a little detail Printworks is known for.
Beach & Bath Towel
If the towels around mum’s place are starting to look a little dated from decades of washing, then perhaps a gift from the Kobn range is needed. Featuring beautiful fabrics and colours, the collection is a guaranteed hit. Not only do Kobn make large beach and bath towels, their range also includes textured bath mats and matching hand towels.
Guitar Sling Stand
Musical mums will be over the moon with one of these slings. Minim make THE most luxurious and beautiful guitar slings, and why not? Guitars are (and make) art, and are obviously well-deserving of a beautiful display home. Made from Australian sourced materials and manufacturers, this beautifully detailed piece will bring years upon years of joy.
Asteroid Oil Burner
If mum needs to sit down and chill out, this may be the best gift you could possible give her. Made from solid brass, this minimalist burner uses the heat of a single tea light to heat and diffuse the fragrance of mum’s favourite essential oil. It’s a treat to look at, and a treat to use – and the perfect way for mum to treat herself.
Obu Jewellery Stand
Simple, yet breathtakingly beautiful, Ferm Living’s jewellery stand is as much sculpture, as it is functional. The piece provides ample space for hanging and displaying precious bracelets and necklaces, whilst its stone, slightly concave base is the perfect spot for lip-balm, vials of perfume, and rings. Mum will love it.
Compact Make Up Mirror
Now this one’s a people (mum) pleaser. OSC have built a great reputation on their clever range of make up mirrors, so you better believe their compact travel option is a winner. When in use, it provides an illuminated reflective screen, and space to store small items. When on the go, it packs down into a disc that slips easily into luggage or a tote bag.
Two Hands Kit
For the mum that loves beautifully soft hands, and let’s be real, that’s just about every mum, this is the perfect gift. Containing a hand wash, and handbag sized moisturiser, this deliciously fragranced (two available) kit is a guaranteed winner.
Thermo Coffee Mug
Mums like their coffee (or tea) hot. It’s a fact of nature – watch them order a coffee and ask for the milk ‘scorching’, then complain that it gets too cold too quickly. This Eva Solo mug solves that, with its ceramic thermo body, liquids stay toasty (scorching) for longer.
