Don’t be too hard on yourself if you’ve left finding a Mother’s Day gift until the last minute. We’ve collated a cool list of ideas that will get to your mum on time for her special day and leave her feeling giddy with excitement.
You may not be able to take your mum for a weekend getaway but that doesn’t mean she can’t experience an adventure right from the comfort of her home. Your mum can zoom across Paris on a panoramic tour, or work on her dances moves with a flamenco class for a Spanish-themed evening.
There are loads of classes to choose from — just make sure they’re taking place during Australia-friendly hours.
Getting your mum a Disney Plus subscription is perfect for a good throwback and it costs $89.99 for the entire year. Streaming movies, docu-series and TV shows has never been more on trend than it is now so this is going to be a real winner with her. She can catch up on old classics such as Lion King or re-watch all the Marvel movies if that’s her thing.
If you aren’t buying the idea of flower bouquets then the funky and cool as hell flowers in a jar from LVLY will definitely change your mind. For instance, you can get the LVLY Personalised Ink Series which features a tattoo-inspired flower jar designed by artist Clare Clarity of Hot Copper Studio. Or, opt for a flower jar with a cheeky message emblazoned across. Either of these will set you back $79-89.
Best bit: LVLY is offering same-day delivery in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. However, be on the safe side and place an order earlier.
Do your mum a solid and give her a Hello Fresh gift card if she enjoys cooking but needs a break from the constant trips to the grocery store and deciding what to cook each day. The minimum spend on their gift card at the moment is $69.93 which gets you three recipes per week for two people. How it works: Once you’ve signed up and selected your meals, the service will deliver a box to your door step filled with fresh ingredients to cook the recipes inside.
Kogan heated deluxe shiatsu massage pillow
Treat your mum to this rejuvenating Shiatsu massage with dual rotating massage nodes, heated warmth function and adjustable strap to secure it to a chair. If she can’t go to the spa for a massage then this is the next best alternative. It costs $89 and free delivery is on the cards. According to Kogan, the massage pillow is available for fast dispatch so hurry up if you want this to get to mum by 10 May.
Nothing says ‘we’ve got your back in the last minute’ than a Jimmy Brings delivery service. Treat your mum to her favourite bottle — whether it’s red, white or sparkling wine — for a same-day, under-an-hour delivery if she lives in an Australian city. There’s no doubt she will have her drink of choice in hand on 10 May.
