Mother’s Day gift guide

Well after packing away the Christmas decor it seems, Mother’s Day is now upon is. Let’s not even talk about how fast 2018 is slipping through my fingers shall we?
For something a bit different I thought I’d round up some gift ideas for the special momma in your life. Mother’s Day always falls on or near my birthday so this list will be pulling double duty for me….cough…husband….cough…

Tell me what woman wouldn’t want a weekend away? Brownie points if she can go without the kids! Although what’s the point, you always end up looking at photos of them anyway.This would also be a great hospital bag.

I know, I know- it’s kind of a typical Mother’s Day gift. But in Australia it’s starting to cool down so this is hugely practical AND you can have it personalised so it’s bit nicer than just a regular robe.

I still love these simple, elegant watches. Such good value!

Classic and stylish, these graphic logo tops are apparently going to be everywhere this season. I feel like they’re everywhere already! I LOVE tee shirts – I’d live in them if I could.These are a bit pricey but for the trendy mama, I think this would be a hit. I also love these shirts because they have “mommy and me” options. I’m a sucker for matching.

When I was looking for a cute robe, I stumbled across this cardigan and now I want to move into it. Forever.

Yes, another “typical” Mother’s Day gift but HOW CUTE are these pom pom ones from Peter Alexander? They’re on major sale at the moment. I love my gold glitter mocs but now I want these too!

SPA DAY (or hour, whatever you can get!)

If you can’t get her a spa day, at least her light a candle and pretend she’s there! No seriously, I love candles – can’t have enough. I’m obsessed with Ecoya’s French Pear (smells like my favourite place in New York) and Sweet Pea & Jasmine.

The gift that keeps on giving! You know I wouldn’t be able to go past my beloved Rodan and Fields. There are so many options at different price points: from delicious lip balm to body scrubs. Maybe an eye cream for any mama with a newborn. And a big supply of coffee of course.

I was kindly gifted a voucher for Smallprint when I had Jack from some of my coworkers. It was the sweetest gesture! I now have Jack and Emma’s tiny fingerprints around my neck – which is the closest thing to keeping them t his small forever. Excuse me…of to cry quietly and eat chocolate now…

Happy Shopping friends! If all else fails, get the kids to make her a card and write things you love about her. Add some homemade coupons for cuddles and on-time bedtimes. Mom’s love that stuff!
