Great gift ideas for Mother's Day

Claim ‘favourite child’ status with our great gift ideas for this Mother’s Day. Whether you would like to create something sentimental or completely spoil your Mum with some bling, we have some gift ideas to help you make your Mum feel like the most loved woman on earth.

Sentimental favourite
Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you put the most time and thought into creating yourself. Put a slideshow or a  photo book together, Snapfish is a great website for creating personalised gifts especially photo books for your Mum. If you have already done the photo book thing and you are handy online, then why not create a video for your Mum. Clipchamp is a free online video editor, get your family to record a short video message using their webcam, they can email it to you, edit the pieces together and voila you've created something that can be enjoyed by your Mum anytime! (don't forget youtube has a thousand tutorials on how to make and edit mini movies).

The Interior Decorator
If your Mum is the décor queen then grab a home magazine subscription head to Mag shop for a subscription to Hard to find, Real Living, Vogue Living, Belle or Home beautiful. Magazine Subscriptions are fantastic because they arrive every month with lots of lovely home inspiration.

Our other favourite place to shop for interiors (and a heap of other goodies) is Kip and Co, their bedding, home wear and P.J range is just the way to inject some colour and fun into your Mum’s life.

Bling Mama
If your Mum needs a little bling in her life, check out Mimco for a gorgeous clutch, pouch or phone case, add ‘Mimbossing’ for complimentary embossing to give your gift that personal touch.

Another great way to spoil your Mum with some bling is to do a little look at the Tiffany and Co web store. The classic ‘Return to Tiffany’ earrings or bracelet is a perfect addition to any Mothers jewellery collection.

Share a show
Out for dinner and a show is so much fun, here are a couple of musicals that your Mum can't miss.

Beautiful is Carol King’s story told through her music writing career.  Honestly, you just can’t help but have a good time at this musical, probably any music lover over 40 would enjoy it, but may be best suited to Mums in the 50+ age group.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Book of Mormon are touring nationally and are having rave reviews, sneak out on a school night with your Mum and enjoy a midweek discount for some shows!

Good luck and don't forget it's the moments we share and the thoughts that count most on Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
