Mother's Day Gifts: Our Top 5 Mother's Day Ideas

With Mother's Day just around the corner, it's time to celebrate all the incredible mums out there! From the tireless late-night feeds to endless loads of laundry, being a mum is no easy job. That's why it's important to go all out and spoil the amazing mothers in our lives.

So, what do mums actually want for their special day?

The Best Mother's Day Present Ideas

You might think that a good night's sleep, some help around the house, or a little peace and quiet are the ultimate Mother's Day gifts. But let's be honest, these are things we want every day of the year!

That's why we've put together a list of unique, thoughtful, and unforgettable Mother's Day gift ideas that are sure to make any mum feel extra special. So without further ado, here are our top 5 picks for the best Mother's Day presents!

A Spa Treatment

Treating Mum to a luxurious pampering experience is an experience like no other. There are so many amazing places to choose from, and you can conveniently purchase spa treatments as online Mother's Day gifts at the same time.

One place that has caught our attention is the new Tokyo Headspa, which has multiple locations in St Leonards, Surry Hills, and Teneriffe QLD.

These Headspas focus entirely on your head and scalp, and offer a range of benefits including improved scalp health, relaxation, and rejuvenated hair growth. If you're anything like me, the highlight of a hair salon is the head massage, this is that head massage on steroids!

Visiting these Headspa's is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in Japanese Headspa culture, which is huge in Japan. If you're looking for unique Mother's Day gifts, you can't go past this one!

Gift Boxes

Whether you purchase a pre-made gift box online or choose to DIY, Mum will always appreciate a gift box or hamper filled with her favourite things.

There are plenty of pre-made hamper options to choose from, such as gorgeous dessert gift boxes from Coco and Bean or a thoughtful, beautiful book gift box from Handsel, with hampers for first time mother's too.

Or if you do choose to create a DIY Gift Box, you can fill it with hand picked treats you know she likes. You can fill it with her favourite chocolate bars, a beautiful candle, a voucher for her favourite restaurant or store, and other good mother's day gifts.

FoodSt Mother's Day Meal Bundle

We couldn't help but include our very own FoodSt Mother's Day Meal Bundle.

Okay, we might be a bit biased, but hear us out! If you're looking for a gift that's both practical and indulgent, this bundle is the perfect choice. Packed with delicious and nutritious meals, it's the ultimate way to show your love and appreciation for all the hard work that mums put in every day. Trust us, this is one gift that won't disappoint!

We've included Michelle's Lasagne, Nat's Satay Chicken, Wal's Chicken Pie and Davide's Arancini. It's sure to put a big smile on her face when she realises she doesn't have to cook. It truly is one of the best mother's day gifts!


A Book of Coupons

This mother's day gift idea is a great one for the kids! Get them involved in making a booklet filled with coupons for Mum to redeem for her favourite things. The coupons could include a DIY spa day, breakfast in bed, or a relaxing massage.


Printable coupons by Happiness is Homemade

You can find many printable versions of these booklets online, like this one here, and have the kids colour them in and come up with ideas for what Mum would love the most.

This is an incredibly thoughtful and cute idea that takes the prize for the most considerate of Mother's Day gift ideas.

A Gift Voucher

If you're not sure what to get for Mother's Day, and are looking for a last-minute mother's day gift, a voucher is an excellent choice. The hard part is choosing where to purchase a voucher from.

With a bit of detective work, you can find the perfect gift voucher that shows your mum just how much you care. What recent purchases has she made, what does she enjoy doing in her spare time? To help we have provided some inspiration below:
