Mother’s Day, that ever so sweet day where we get showered with cuddles, kisses, homemade cards and presents is just around the corner. Now is the time to start dropping those subtle pressie hints to your partners and kids ladies! And also a great time to get in early and choose some thoughtful gifts for your mum/mother-in-law.
Of course, we all know the cutest gifts of all are the ones the kids choose and pay for themselves at their schools Mother’s Day stall, followed closely by a pasta necklace and a card made with old lolly wrappers! But there is nothing wrong with a little healthy hinting if you’ve had your eye on something for awhile because, let’s face it, as busy loving mums, we deserve it!
So here are our top picks for gifts for mum this Mother’s Day and if our hubbies happen to be reading this, then yes, we too would be happy with any of the below mentioned ideas! Thanks honey!

Mothers Day Care Package
FLOWERS FROM A LOCAL FLORIST
We love receiving fresh flowers on Mother’s Day especially if it’s a bunch of flowers from one of our favourite local florists and fellow #bosslady mama’s! Lisa’s a natives girl and Helen loves roses, peonies and tulips. Local markets also have a great variety to choose from as do fresh produce suppliers such as Tully’s in Mornington and Henri’s in Frankston. Some of our favourite local florists include Local Love Co, The Flower Press Co and Flowers by Ren.
HART & CO CANDLE
You can’t walk into Bayside Centre and not walk past the divine smelling stall that is Hart & Co. There range of candles and reed sticks are just divine and smell soooo good! Lisa has their reed sticks in her bathroom and the smell beautifully wafts into the entire house – so good! Our favourite flavour would have to be Japanese Honeysuckle but there is lots of other flavours to choose from such as Salted Caramel, Passionfruit and Lemongrass and Ginger so you’re sure to find a smell you love!

T2 CUP & SAUCER
There’s nothing better than sipping tea out of proper little dainty tea cup complete with its own saucer (how la di da darrrling!). We love the bright patterns across the T2 range, perfect as a little afternoon pick me up to help you unwind as you sip your favourite brew.
T2 STAINLESS STEEL FLASK WITH TEA INFFUSER
These thermal flasks come in a range of gorgeous colours, simply fill the infuser with your favourite tea leaves and screw back into the bottle to work its magic, can keep your tea hot for up to 6 hours! Perfect now the weather is getting a little cooler – we can see this in hand at many Saturday morning soccer and netball matches! Click here to visit the T2 website.
FACIAL AND MASSAGE AT PARC WELLNESS CENTRE
Did you know PARC has a wellness centre? Well you do now! There are heaps of gorgeous treatments to choose from and we know it can get a little overwhelming to choose especially when it’s not for yourself! That’s why we love their current Mother’s Day special offering a 60-minute express relaxation package – 30-minute massage and a 30-minute facial for only $99. Bliss!

101 MOMENTS OF JOY & INSPIRATION BY MEREDITH GASTON
We were luck enough to meet Meredith at an event a few weeks back and she is honestly the most beautiful soul. Her books are full of love and warmth and are the perfect read for a special mama who needs to soak in some soul lifting goodness. Meredith has a range of beautiful books available, we particularly love 101 Moments of Joy & Inspiration where Meredith has gathered together the most uplifting and inspirational quotations from poets, artists and philosphers past and present to not only enrich our minds but to help give us the power to positively tranform our realities by the thoughts we choose to think.

Is there anything better than new pajamas? Well, maybe slipping into new pajamas AND clean sheets but without pushing it…new pajamas will do just fine! There are a few floating about we currently love so fingers crossed our hubbies are reading this! How devine is the colour of these Shakura Satin PJ’s from Brs&Things?!

Well you really can’t go past a new pair of slippers! In fact, we’re pretty sure slippers need replacing at least once a year so what better timing than Mother’s Day! Kmart has a great range of slippers from boots to moccys to novelty! Their prices are super affordable too so this is a great present for mum if the purse strings are perhaps a little tight, pop some fresh slippers on her feet with breakfast in bed and her day will be made!
