10 Mother's Day Gift Ideas She Will Absolutely Love

Date Posted:6 May 2024 

It's nearly May, and we all know what that means… Mother's Day is swiftly approaching! This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, the 12th of May.

If it feels like the day has snuck up on you, you're not alone. When life gets busy, brainstorming awesome Mother's Day ideas to make her day special is often the last thing on our minds. We want to spoil Mum but often don't know where to begin.

Luckily this isn't our first rodeo! Here at The Hamper Emporium, we specialise in putting together incredible and heartfelt gifts for Mum, from pamper hampers to other unique Mother's Day ideas that she is sure to love. We've been delivering happiness to Mums Australia-wide for long enough to have some amazing ideas up our sleeves. So look no further; here are 10 Mother's Day hampers and gift ideas she will absolutely love:

#1. Mother's Day chocolates

Treat her to a chocolate and sweets hamper she can really indulge with, like, for example, the Mother’s Day Sweet Treats & Chandon Hamper. This hamper comes with a special offer: get Mum the hamper, and she'll get two free premium champagne coupes. Luxury snacks are the heart of this hamper and the bottle of Chandon Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut is the soul. This chardonnay pairs nicely with the Dark Chocolate Belgian Wafers, Lemon White Chocolate Almonds, Cocoa Dusted Roasted Peanuts & Almonds, and more that this hamper includes. Bon appétit.

#2. Pamper pack

These are some of our best Mother's Day gifts for a good reason: we don't know a Mum out there who doesn't deserve a little more ‘me time'. Whatever she does from day to day, it's likely that she would jump at any excuse to turn off her phone, run a relaxing bath, and relax in bliss.

It can be hard to choose good Mother's Day gifts for Mum, especially when you don't want to repeat last year's idea or give her gift vouchers, but this thoughtful present speaks volumes. Tell the special woman in your life that she deserves to be celebrated with our ultimate pamper pack – the Mother's Day Spa & Recharge Hamper.

This luxury bath hamper delivers me time, spoiling her skin with Nektar goodies like a cleansing wash and a hand and body hydrating lotion. Boasting a French pink clay and pink salt bath soak, Toffee Popcorn Brittle, and a Golden Hour Soy Wax Candle, it spoils her from the inside out.

#3. A bottle of wine or champagne

If you're after a Mother's Day present idea that will hit the mark every time, buy her a high-quality bottle of her favourite wine.

Is she a Francophile who adores croissants and fromage? Easy, give her a bottle of champagne. Does she adore rich, fruity flavours? Consider a bottle of Australian red wine. For spirit lovers, splurge for a bottle of gin or even cognac. She'll be able to savour the flavours and perhaps discover something new.

Or, if you want to help her celebrate in style, consider gifting her our Moët Magic Champagne Hamper. It comes with a delectable bottle of Moët, plus some dark chocolate almonds from Maggie Beer, a limited edition gold goblet, and a delectable soy wax candle.

#4. Plan a Mother's Day high tea

Creating those special Mother's Day memories is what it's all about. An excuse to laugh, share time, enjoy food, and build connections is what truly matters.

If you're planning a multi-generational affair for Mother's Day, a fancy afternoon high tea is lots of fun. It's easy to organise and can be something you host from the comfort of your home. If it's something you haven't done before, our guide to planning a Mother's Day high tea at home will help you make it special.

Or, if you're looking for high tea in a box, allow us to recommend the Ultimate Tea & Biscuit Hamper For Mum. This hamper spoils Mum with some organic English Breakfast tea, a Robert Gordon Granite Ceramic Cup, some sweet nuts, and celebrity chef Maggie Beer's famous Macadamia Shortbread. How sweet!

#5. Board games and puzzles

If Mum loves hosting dinner parties, why not give her a selection of board games that she can whip out once dessert is over? She'll be creating vibrant memories with her guests for years to come.

Jigsaw puzzles are another great idea, especially if it's one you can complete together. It's a unique present that she won't forget in a hurry.

#6. Self-care and relaxation gifts

If you're looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift, allow us to recommend the Mother's Day Pamper & Reset Hamper. Offering a truly pampering experience for the body and soul, it's full of goodies that provide the spa experience at home. She can sit back and enjoy a moment of peace with a satin robe and Mulberry silk eye mask from The Cove Jervis Bay, soak with a pink clay and salt bath soak, and nibble on some popcorn brittle and coconut roasted almonds. Give Mum the gift of self-care and time for reflection with this hamper; it's truly the perfect gift.

#7. House plants

If you're shopping for a Mum with a green thumb, look no further than a delightful house plant for her to nurture and love. If she doesn't want anything high-maintenance, we absolutely love succulents. They need very little and look absolutely stunning. If her home already resembles a greenhouse, go with something unique that she doesn't have yet. We also recommend a self-watering glass pot for her plants – practical gifts are good gifts.

#8. Framed photographs

Memories are often the most valuable things we can possess. For an inventive Mother's Day gift that will touch her heart, get her favourite family photos printed and framed so she can display them proudly around the house.

Dig up old family photos; yes, the ones she took on that old film camera! Or perhaps your chosen moments are more recent. Weddings, graduations, anniversaries… They're all unforgettable milestones in life that deserve to be commemorated and celebrated.

Give her a daily reminder of all the love in her life, and she'll be bound to cherish you forever.

#9. Elegant homewares

We couldn't write about the best Mother's Day gift ideas in Australia without including homewares. After all, a woman's home is her castle. You have endless options to choose from. You could opt for something simple and functional, like beautiful serving bowls or classic bookends. Or perhaps she'd prefer an ornamental gift.

#10. A memorable picnic

If Mum loves the outdoors and always knows the spots with the best views, give her a little something to take on her next adventure: everything she needs to create a memorable picnic with her loved ones. If she's an absolute foodie, then we recommend putting together a selection of Australia's leading snacks and nibbles. Give her artisan crackers, quince paste, and roasted almonds to top it off. If time is of the essence, you can always choose from our range of cheese hampers for a Mother's Day picnic. Cheese gifts are the best gifts, after all.
