Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide

May 9th, 2014

You know that you should have already organised a super thoughtful, beautifully wrapped gift for mum by now.

But since you’re reading this, you obviously haven’t, and I’m not here to make you feel bad about it.

I’m here to save your butt from getting out-gifted by your brothers and sisters.

Here’s a bunch of the hottest (and budget-friendly) mum-stuff around that you can grab on Saturday before the big day.

  • Get mum ready for a cosy winter with some socks and a beanie from Country Road

  • Serve her breakfast in bed with a new set of bamboo bowls from Gorman

  • IKEA have a bunch of throw rugs that start from only $4.99. She’ll never know!

  • Chicks love Jodi Picoult books. Grab mum her most recent novel, The Storyteller, from any good bookstore

  • Mum can get snap-happy with the family on a new Fujifilm Instamax polaroid camera, only $99 from Target (includes a 10 pack of film!)

  • Get your green thumb on and make her a succulent garden, inspired by this round-up on Apartment Therapy

  • If your mum enjoys a bit of outdoor entertaining, check out the latest honey-inspired range from Wheel and Barrow

  • Help mum chill out and get flexy. Myer have got a great beginners yoga pack on sale

  • If your mum is a bit more fancy than the rest, check out the range of Kate Spade jewels at David Jones with a heap of stuff under $100

If you get really stuck, just remember this old saying: “a gift from the heart is one that involves dried macaroni art.”

I think that how it goes. Or if handmade gifts isn’t your thing, go nuts and just Nimble It.

To all the mums out there – enjoy your special day… and to all the offspring, good luck with your shopping!
