Mother’s Day is swiftly approaching!


It’s April, and we all know what that means… Mother’s Day is swiftly approaching! 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 (and beyond) for long enough to have some amazing ideas up our sleeves. So look no further, here are some Mothers Day hampers and gift ideas she will absolutely love.


Framed Photographs

Memories are often the most valuable things we can possess. For an inventive 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. Give her a daily reminder of all the love in her life, she’ll be bound to cherish them forever.


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 too! 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. Choose a gorgeous scented candle, champagne glasses and entertaining accessories. Ensure it’s lovingly gift wrapped so she is suitably surprised. It will fill her with joy, and make the house feel just that little bit more complete.


Pamper Pack

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 absolutely bliss out. Buy Mum a beautiful silk robe, a scented soy candle or some indulgent chocolates. Better yet, get her a selection of everything. It can be hard to choose 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.


Mothers Day Hampers


A Bottle of Wine

It’s beautiful in its simplicity. 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. There are all types of mums out there, and this translates to her drink of choice. Is she a Francophile who adores croissants and fromage? Easy, gift her with a bottle of the finest quality champagne. Does she adore rich, fruity flavours? Consider a bottle of Australian red wine. For spirit lovers, splash out with a bottle of gin or even cognac. She’ll be able to savour the flavours and perhaps discover something new.


Plan A Mothers Day High Tea

If you'll be spending the day with your mum, and especially if you are planning a multi-generational affair with your own children and your mother, a fancy afternoon high tea is lots of fun. It's easy to organise and can be something you host with a few friends and their mothers. Our guide to planning a Mother's Day high tea at home will help if it's something you have not done before. 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.


The Sweet Epicure Hamper


Board Games & 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. You could opt for a classic like Monopoly, Scrabble or even Cluedo. Jigsaw puzzles are another great idea, especially if it's one you can complete together. For general knowledge aficionado mums, try a trivia-based game that will test her expertise. It’s a unique present that she won’t forget in a hurry.


Self Care & Relaxtion 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, 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. Maybe she’s always been curious about bullet journaling! In that case, a journal with blank pages would be perfect. She can be creative and experiment with new layouts. Otherwise, a lined notebook is ideal for the mum with classic tastes. Either way, she will simply adore this thoughtful gift.


Time for Tea Hamper


House Plants

For all the green thumb mamas out there, look no further than a delightful house plant for her to nurture and love. There are many benefits to keeping plants inside. They clean the air, help boost healing and can even lift your mood! 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 adore self-watering glass pot plants that can be kept indoors, but the possibilities are endless!


Mothers Day Flowers

For a mum who loves flowers, but hates to see them wilt and die, give her a beautiful Mother's Day flowers bouquet with 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. Send her more than just flowers with a complete bouquet of gifts that will really make mum happy! Fresh flowers can be a little high maintenance for busy mums. A pretty bouquet for her to keep on her desk at work or proudly displayed for all to see will be a talking point and a something she can cherish. For a mum who loves beautiful things, dried floral arrangements are a great gift idea for Mother's Day.

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. Gift her with everything she needs to create a memorable picnic with her loved ones. So what are the absolute essentials? Well, this depends on Mum. If she’s an absolute foodie then we recommend putting together a selection of Australia’s leading snacks and nibbles. Give her artisan crackers, local quince paste and roasted almonds to top it off. If time is of the essence, you can always choose from a range of cheese hampers for a Mother's Day picnic. We can think of a few that would be perfect for a day spent together! With contactless delivery on orders, there’s nothing stopping you from giving Mum a gift that she’ll remember for a lifetime.

No matter what you gift Mum with, make sure she feels absolutely spoiled this Mother’s Day. She will hold the memory dear and appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into her amazing Mothers Day gift. Your loving Mum deserves to be pampered, and there’s nothing more loving that a kind gesture to show her how much you care. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to give her everything she deserves, and more!
