10 Mother's Day Gift Ideas She Will Absolutely Love
Date Posted:10 April 2023
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 14th of May, 2023.
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 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. 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.
#2. 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. Or, treat her to luxury homewares in the form of a hamper like the Self-care and Tea Hamper. It includes a Robert Gordon mug she is sure to treasure.
Whatever you select, make sure it’s lovingly gift-wrapped so that she is suitably surprised.
#3. Pamper pack
These are one of our most popular 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. Better yet, buy Mum a beautiful silk robe, a scented soy candle, and some indulgent bath products to enjoy. If you're looking for a specific recommendation, our Opulent Wellness Hamper contains all that and more!
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, but this thoughtful present speaks volumes. Tell the special woman in your life that she deserves to be celebrated with a pamper pack.
#4. A bottle of wine
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.
#5. 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.
Our Mother's Day hampers – specifically, our A Touch of Luxury Hamper – can also help you master the dessert menu. This gorgeous hamper features some goodies for Mum, as well as some artisan sweet treats.
#6. 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.
#7. Self-care and relaxation gifts
Give Mum the gift of self-care and time for reflection with a beautifully designed journal, organic tea, and relaxation gifts. Maybe she’s a word lover, and she's always clutching a novel or the newspaper. Maybe she’s a busy woman who relies on lists to get through each week. Either way, she will be grateful for an elegant place to collect all her thoughts.
If you're looking for a specific Mothers Day gift recommendation, allow us to recommend the L'Occitane Rejuvenate & Pamper Hamper. It includes a gold-lined blush pink notebook, some gourmet treats, and some unforgettable pamper products.
#8. 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.
#9. Mother's Day flowers
A Mum who loves flowers – but hates to see them wilt and die – will love a preserved flower arrangement. Our stunning new flower hampers feature a posy of perfect everlasting flowers for Mum to enjoy long after Mother's Day. Our top flower hamper of 2023 is the More Than Flowers Hamper. It's the perfect gift for Mum.
#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.
