There's no better time to spoil your Mum and show her how much you appreciate her than Mother's Day. This year, Mother's Day is on Sunday, 14th May.

Are you unsure of what to get her? We've taken a lot of the guesswork out of gift giving, offering a bunch of different options to suit all kinds of budgets, that cater to mums with different interests, whether she loves to pamper herself, kick back at home and relax, or get out of the house for an adventure.

Skincare · See all

Skincare is one of the most popular gifts for mothers, but that doesn't mean it goes unappreciated. There's nothing quite like being able to pamper yourself at home, and Mum will love a new product to give her skin some TLC. We've got two skincare picks for you to consider as a gift.

Peppy Co. All-In-One Sleeping Mask, $49

This Peppy Co. mask is an overnight mask that has ingredients like Australian pink clay and zinc oxide to let you wake up with softer, smoother skin. It was also a Award Winner this year, with reviewers saying that it melted into their skin, made it glowing, and gave them all day hydration.

Sand and Sky Brilliant Skin, $60.90

Another great skincare pick is the Sand and Sky Brilliant Skin Clay Face Mask, which has pink clay and kakadu plum as key ingredients to deeply cleanse the skin, tighten pores, and stimulate collagen production. Plus, reviewers said that it worked a treat on sensitive skin too.

Hair stylers · See all

Imagine having a good hair day, every day. Your mum will feel like a million bucks using any of these hair stylers.

BondiBoost Blowout Brush Pro, $99.99

The BondiBoost Blowout Brush Pro can dry, style, and add volume to your hair - all in one nifty tool. Mum will enjoy the dual bristles which help detangle the hair, as well as the ionic technology that helps tame frizz to leave hair silkier. Plus, it can be used wet or dry.

TNS Automatic Curler, $259

A 2023 Award Winner in the Hair Stylers category, the TNS Automatic Curler makes light work of jazzing up your locks. It's a foolproof design that anyone - regardless of their hairdressing ability - can use. The curler has adjustable temperature settings, a quick 40-second heat up time, and reviewers said that their curls were long-lasting after using it.

If you think your Mum would prefer a hair straightener, then check out the SAS Professional Hair Straightener, which retails for $199.95 but is on sale for $149.95 at the moment. It's a 6-time Award Winner, with our reviewers loving it for its ease of use and ability to straighten all kinds of hair.

Audio Technica ATH-M50x, $319

Audio Technica ATH-M50x

Headphones are definitely a more premium pick for a holiday gift, but these Audio Technica headphones are used by everyone from casual listeners to audio engineers. This pair is also a 2023 Award Winner, with reviewers rating them well because of their sound clarity, build quality, and great value for money.

Weighted Blankets · See all

As we approach the colder months, it's a nice thought to give Mum something that will make her feel special and keep her warm. Some weighted blankets are even made of lighter, more breathable fabrics to suit hotter weather.

Calming Blanket Weighted Blanket, $299

The Calming Blanket Weighted Blanket is a 2023 Award Winner, with reviewers saying that it helped improve their sleep and settle their nerves. It comes in different weights, is antimicrobial, and has a washable cover. Whether she uses it while watching TV or while sleeping, it'll help Mum completely relax and enjoy her time at home.

The Therapy Weighted Blanket also has rave reviews, and with some blankets selling for $185, is a little less of a blow to the wallet. Both the Calming Blanket and the Therapy Weighted Blanket can often be found on sale too, so keep an eye out for deals.

Experience voucher

It's not uncommon for us to recommend experience vouchers when it comes to present-giving, because it's just that good a gift. It suits all kinds of people and you can select an experience that also suits your budget.

Scoopon offers vouchers for everything from fine dining experiences and spa days to painting classes and luxury full-day tours in the great outdoors - all at discounted prices. Regardless of what you choose for mum, she'll feel completely spoilt.

Gifts for Mum under $100

Sistaco Nails

The Sistaco Nails system was in last year's gift guide, but it's still the top-rated nail care product on our site. To use it, you dip your nails into a mineral powder rather than painting them, and then dry them with the help of the included LED lamp. You can choose from a Starter Set for $75 (which comes with 1 colour). Those who can spend over $100 can also get a Deluxe Set (3 colours) for $125 or an Ultimate Set (6 colours) for $185.

IOCO Glass Coffee Traveller

Whether you're a tea person or a coffee lover, everyone needs a reusable travel mug. This one is made of glass, but still provides insulation for up to 1 or 2 hours. It's dishwasher safe, BPA free, and comes in different sizes to suit different beverages - a 12oz/355ml mug costs $34.95. What's not to love?

georgiemane 10 Minute Hair Mask

If Mum has dry or damaged hair, or just wants her hair to be a little more luscious, then the georgiemane 10 Minute Hair Mask will be the perfect gift for her. It goes for $59.99, but can often be caught on sale. Ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera will leave her hair conditioned, moisturised, and protected.
