8 fail proof gift ideas for Mum

Whether you’re celebrating your much-loved mum, know a mum-to-be or perhaps a mama yourself, Mother’s Day is a day to say – and give – thanks. The best gifts are those that are carefully thought out, so look for items that reflect their personality and interests to show them how much you love and appreciate all that they do for you.

Remember, that the best gift doesn’t have to be an item that blows your budget out, something as simple as giving Mum a massage or making her breakfast in bed could just as easily bring joy to her day along with a heartfelt handwritten card to show her you care.

No matter how you decide to do to celebrate your mother, mum to be, step-mum or a woman that’s made an impact on your life, these no-fail gift ideas are designed to delight!


Chloe Zara The Ultimate Treatment Duo

We love a great hair treatment and Chloe Zara has just the perfect duo to help Mum’s hair be her best ever. Combining Chloe Zara’s Silk Hair Balm with their cult Hair & Body Perfume Oil creates a luxurious, rich, intensive treatment masque to repair dry, damaged hair, restore and hydrate strands to leave you with smooth, soft, shiny healthy hair.

La Tribe Twist Slipper

Fun, ethical and durable, La Tribe’s bestselling slippers are carefully crafted using 100% ethically sourced sheepskin. Available in two colour ways, they are designed for weekend lounging and cosy days at home, and are a must have for Mum as the days get cooler.


Nuori Supreme Moisture Mask

A hydration boost like no other.  This highly concentrated, yet lightweight moisturising mask is the ultimate for dehydrated and destressed skin.  Ingredients like Grape and Damask rose water combined with hyaluronic acid effectively restore moisture levels, while botanical squalene and betaine strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Anti-inflammatory chamomile extract reduces irritation and restores suppleness. Vitamin B3 revives skin tone, improves elasticity, and prevents moisture loss.  Applying a generous layer to a cleansed face and neck one to two times per week for 10-15 minutes will give mum an instant hydration boost to her skin.

Cupcakes from Just Jess Boujee Bakery

We absolutely love Just Jess Boujee Bakery!  Award winning bakers and the home of all the boujee sweet treats that not only look amazing but will give all the feels to Mum.  Just Jess Boujee Bakery is an online bakery retailer that operates with a click and collect pre-order model.  It’s as simple as selecting what you want, select the date you want to pick up and then swing by and collect from one of their two locations; their HQ in Huapai or pop up in Takapuna.  Pop in for fresh donuts or sweet treats and a coffee.

Henne Organics Lip Mask

At Clean Beauty Collective we love the Henne brand, which is chic, cool and all about self-care. The rejuvenating Lip Mask allows nourishing ingredients such as sea buckthorn oil and evening primrose to help restore and soothe your lips, while a fresh yet light sweet citrus scent enlivens your senses. A certified organic lip treatment that is both luxurious and indispensable, mum will love this even more as the cooler weather hits.

OFF & ON Brow Lamination & Colour

Why not treat mum to a bit of pampering with OFF & ON’s Brow Experts across the country, because everyone knows nothing says “I love you mum” like a pair of fresh brows! We love that the experts at OFF & ON believe that nature has it right, and your best brows are the most believable ones. Their Brow Lift service is a method of brow lamination that gives a fuller and fluffy look, which works by resetting the brows into a straighter, more uniform position to allow more flexibility in styling your brows, so Mum can get out of bed in the morning red carpet-ready with her brows on point.

Preserved Hydrangeas by BUNCHED

BUNCHED is the perfect gift for all the flower lovers out there.  Just as we shop local for our food, clothing and skincare so too should we with our flowers.  The sad reality is that many flowers are imported and spend days travelling across the world before they even hit retailers’ shelves.  At BUNCHED they put the growers, the consumer and the environment first by refining the process to a simpler solution that reduces plastic waste and is gentler on the environment, connecting flower lovers directly with local growers.  With a focus on preserved flowers, they provide 100% local, non-toxic curated editions of seasonal blooms that are delivered directly to you from the flower grower.  Their stunning preserved Hydrangeas are the latest collection to be made available.  You’ve got to get in quick as these sell fast.

Lyre’s Pink London Spirit from Clear Head Drinks

Is your health-conscious mum minding her alcohol intake? Treat her with a bottle of Lyre’s impossibly crafted Pink London Spirit! With instantly floral notes of rose, cherry, red berry and blackberry followed by a generous gin-focussed finish, it is perfect in a classic Pink G&T, or in an elevated non-alcoholic Pink London Spritz when combined with Lyre’s Classico, soda, a lemon slice and berries of your choice.
