Make Mum feel extra special with our favourite Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2021, from experiences to fashion or something for the home.
Above all, this day is all about celebrating Mum – so do something that she loves and will make her feel cherished. Here’s our top 15 Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2021.
A Card From Everyone – Mum will absolutely love a card from everyone, upload a photo and message online and print it out at home or at Officeworks for only $2. It’s free to create at GroupTogether.com. An absolute winner!
Tickets to a Show – Hamilton the Musical is perfect for those in Sydney, otherwise there’s plenty of great comedy shows and artist tours in the next few months. Head over to Ticketek to see what’s in your city.
Dining Experience – check out Good Food or Gourmet Traveller, they both have gift cards that will let Mum choose from Australia’s most amazing restaurants.
Something Spectacular – from Hot Air Ballooning to a Bridge Climb, these once-in-a-lifetime experience are great for the adventurous. Check out Red Balloon or Adrenaline for inspiration. Otherwise high teas or wineries to celebrate the day is a special way to spend time together, or organise a weekend getaway.
Massage & Facial – give a gift card for Mum to have some well-deserved R&R, we love endota spa’s treatments – the Organic Infusion Facial is designed to de-stress the body and deeply replenish your complexion.
Luxury Robe & Pyjamas – it feels SO nice slipping into a gorgeous set of pyjamas and a comfy robe (and this is a great gift for new mums!). We love Sheridan’s Sleepware range, or David Jones have plenty to offer. The Abbotson Linen Robe, available at Sheridan, is crafted from 100% Belgian linen flax and features patch pockets and a waist tie for the most comfortable fit and a relaxed-luxe look. Monogramming is also available.
Conscious Accessories – there’s more and more brands creating beautiful accessories in more sustainable ways, and it’s more important than ever to support local brands. Check out The Daily Edited’s Conscious range for personalised bags or THE ICONIC’s Considered Edit for anything from sunglasses to beach towels. These Classic Hoops by Released from Love are Australian-made and showcases the label’s signature use of aesthetic contradictions with its polished 23ct gold vermeil construction and organic design.
Luxury Winter Warmers – the air always starts to feel a little fresher around Mother’s Day, so give something that Mum will cherish during winter. We love the Many Kaaga Moni 100% Chashmere ‘Cape Town’ knitted scarf, not only for the luxurious feel, but you can choose to either wear it around your neck or wrap it over your body.
Designer Fashion – for those fashion forward Mums, spoil her with a designer piece she’ll cherish forever (PS it’s a perfect group gifts from all the kids!). Parlour X has the best designers and latest styles, we love the Jacquemus Le Chiquito Moyan bag.
Coffee Machine – a good coffee machine is a must-have in the kitchen and Nespresso have mastered the home-brew coffee.
Something for the Home – perfect for mums who love entertaining, there’s plenty of Australian brands creating stunning hand-crafted homewares. Check out Dinosaur Designs or Robert Gordon, both are available at David Jones. The Dinosaur Designs Wildflower Large Branch Vase can act as either a beautiful sculpture or a vase, and they’re hand-made in Australia.
Not Just a Toaster – if Mum loves cooking, something for the kitchen could be a great gift but make sure it still has the ‘ohhh!’ effect. SMEG have some really stylish appliances that will give a pop of colour to the kitchen.
Boutique Glassware – make mum feel special by bringing a little joy each day. This stunning carafe and goblet by Maison Balzac are individually mouth-blown and will add extraordinary pleasure to the simple act of drinking water. It is inspired by the traditional sets used in France and displayed on a bedside table at night.
Chocolate – it’s always a winner, but you can go one better than a box of Roses. We love Koko Black’s Mother’s Day range.
Flowers – perfect for if you can’t be together on Mother’s Day, have some flowers delivered to let her know you’re thinking of her. The pink long-stemmed roses by Mr Roses are gorgeous.
Giving a gift from the whole family means you can give one great gift that will really be appreciated. Organise your group gift online in a few minutes with GroupTogether.
