Mother’s Day Gift Guide Part Two + Giveaway!

posted by Teagan West May 5, 2015 0 comments

It’s now 5 days until Mother’s Day. Are you organised? Card, present, lunch organised? Fear not, my friends, because we love solving problems, especially when it involves a spot of shopping for a special someone. If you missed part one of our Gift Guide you can find it here, full of gift ideas for Mums with style, homeware collections and also some tips on getting a gift for the Mum that seems to have everything.

In Part 2, we’re talking gift ideas for Mums who are into active lifestyles, beauty routines and those who are a pro in the kitchen. Plus, if you want to earn some extra brownie points, we’ve got a giveaway to win a coconut-filled health and beauty pack, but you’ve only got until Wednesday May 6 at 3pm to enter.

So without further ado, here’s Part Two of our Mother’s day Gift Guide.

The Active Mum

Whether your Mum is a bit of a gym bunny or a zen yoga enthusiast, good quality activewear and accessories never go astray for the Mum who loves to live an active lifestyle. Get her the latest health-conscious cookbook (we’re loving Lola Berry at the moment) so she can be inspired by healthy recipes, or gather a collection of accessories for her gym bag that will help her get up and moving when its exercise time. If she needs some extra motivation, a Fitbit is a great place to start as it counts your steps each day and encourages you to keep on moving throughout the day.

The Masterchef Mum 

Is Your Mums a pro in the kitchen? Then she’ll love any gadgets and trinkets that belong in her little haven. If she’s in the market so a new appliance, splash some cash and treat her to something she wants and needs. A nice dinner set or a beautiful platter won’t go unused, neither will novelty products like a fondue machine, coffee grinder and tapas plates. If you’re feeling creative put together a personalised gift pack of some of her favourite things in the kitchen, such as her favourite tea, beautiful salad servers, a new cookbook, gorgeous moroccan bowls, a clean apron, a shiny baking tray and some colourful decor to redecorate with. The possibilities are endless!

The Beauty-Guru Mum 

If you’re Mum has a bigger collection of makeup, skincare products and perfumes than you, there’s no doubt she’s a beauty guru who loves to keep up with the latest trends. This doesn’t mean she has everything though, so have a snoop and see what gaps you can fill in her collection. Go-To Skincare by Zoe Foster Blake is one of our favourites and Australian online store Lulu & Lipstick always have a good collection of beauty products and gift sets in their range if you need some inspiration. Our pick of the crop though is this Coconut Culture Smooth & Soothe Cream. Not only do coconut products smell and feel great, but they’re also incredibly good for your beauty routine too and you can use coconut oil as a facial cleanse or scrub, to help clean your teeth and gums and as a hair and scalp treatment.

And here’s the best part – thanks to our friends at Stance Global and Coconut Culture, we’re giving away this glorious coconut gift pack this Mother’s Day! To enter, simply like us on Facebook and Instagram through the widget below. You can enter as many times as you like and the more times you connect with us on different platforms, the more entries you will receive. But be quick, entries close at Midnight on Wednesday May 5 (AEST) and the prize will be express posted to the winner on Thursday. Enter for Mum and make her Mother’s Day extra special, or if you’ve got her gift sorted, why not enter for yourself instead (because after all, we all could use some extra indulgence here and there!).

Mother’s Day Gift Guide Part One

posted by Teagan West April 24, 2015 0 comments

How is it that Mother’s Day always sneaks up on me every damn year?! We’ve still got three weeks, so I guess that’s still enough time think up a plan and woo the mother hen. So while I’m racking my brains for the present that will knock her socks off, I thought I’d share my wisdom with you lovely folk and create the ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide. There was too much to include in one post (because after all, you have to spoil your mum), so we’ve got part one here for you today, and part two of the gift guide coming next week.

So let’s get started!

The Stylish Mum

If she’s a stylish lady (and especially if she has her own Instagram account) then there’s no such thing as too many accessories. As we are moving into the cooler months, some new accessories to compliment her winter wardrobe are perfect – think scarves, jackets, ponchos, winter hats, cozy wraps and statement jewellery in warm colour palettes. Shop at some of her favourite stores (you may have to do some sniffing around to find out where) and make sure you keep all of the receipts incase you need to change size, colour or product. If you are hesitant with buying her clothes and accessories, opt for some skincare products, body lotions and bath goods so she can pamper herself at home.

The Homewares Mum

If you think your Mum has missed her calling as an interior designer or event stylist, then it’s safe to assume she’s a homewares Mum. Think colourful cushions, throw rugs in gorgeous textures, a mosaic vase, a piece of artwork to match her living room, a vibrant fruit bowl or an inspirational quote to bring love into the home. If you’re still unsure, a safe option is always a nice smelling candle in her favourite scent (go for citrus, creamy or floral notes) from the Glasshouse Candle Range or the Palm Beach Collection.

The “She Owns Everything” Mum

If she’s one of those mums who has everything, or you can’t think of something she’ll need/use/love, why not head over to a site like Personalised Favours and send her a lovely gift pack. Gift-giving specialist sites will have a bunch of ideas in their range for every occasion, some that you probably haven’t even thought of yourself. You can have a gift customised with engraving, a unique package created and have it professionally wrapped and delivered to your door before Mother’s Day, so all you’ll have to do is deliver it to Mum (and you’ll get all of the credit). If you’re up for some extra brownie points, pick up a bunch of beautiful blooms in her favourite hue to go with the gift and watch her smile beam from ear to ear.

So how did we do… have you go some ideas for Mum yet? Next week we’ll have a wrap up of the best gifts for beauty, health and chef Mum, so make sure you stop on by again.
