The Best Mother's Day Gift Ideas for 2022
1. Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Classic Precious Alox Collection
Victorinox is celebrated the world over for their sleek, innovative Swiss Army Knives and their new Classic Precious Alox Collection has lifted their style stakes to a whole new level.
This premium quality Swiss-made pocket knife has five functions including a small blade, scissors, nail file, mini screwdriver 2.5mm and key ring, making it an essential and functional everyday companion for mums on the go. Featuring a woven pattern in a pretty metallic shade of Classic Precious Pink, this nifty little Mother's Day gift is effortlessly elegant and perfectly practical.
Yes, you read that correctly! We love LEGO - and not just for kids. It is actually a fun, hands-on gift for mums that can encourage them to take some time out in a creative way or get the family together for some playful connection. Whether they want to satisfy their wanderlust, create their own pop-art masterpiece or practice mindfulness, these inspired LEGO sets will delight your mum's inner child.
If you have a creative mum who loves a splash of colour, let her unleash her inner artist and create some DIY decor with Wall Art featuring Andy Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe painting. If she's the adventurous type, the epic World Map will take her on a whole new travel experience, or you can give the priceless gift of calm with the 3-D Bonsai Tree from the beautiful Botanical range that fosters meditation and relaxation.
3. The Botanist Gin Candle
The perfect gift for a luxury-loving mum is the Botanist Gin candle; an ultra-fragrant candle with scents inspired by the botanicals found in The Botanist Gin. The candle showcases a bouquet of herbal freshness, juniper and sweet citrus from Australian botanicals—all characteristic of the 22 botanicals that are foraged from Islay for the gin itself.
Grab one for mum (and one for you, we won’t judge), from The Candle Library!
4. Disaronno - Le Casa Del Disaronno
Spoil mum with a luxurious weekend away at the world’s first Disaronno themed boutique accommodation at Guestlands Italia, a Tuscan and Bellagio inspired Bed and Breakfast. Now known as ‘La Casa Del Disaronno’, this bespoke B&B includes four luxurious villas, each fitted out with a Disaronno Fizz aperitivo kit and antipasto picnic basket so guests can escape to a little Italian haven without leaving the country. The retreat gives off a Tuscan ambience, with a traditional Parterre garden, fountains and rustic bridges connecting to numerous ponds that lead to a stunning pool and spa which guests can enjoy. What a memorable experience to share with mum for Mother's Day!
5. Nutricraft Cookware
If your mum enjoys spending time in the kitchen, look no further than Nutricraft cookware for Mother's Day this year. Their mission is to provide a solution to healthy cooking using the safest cooking surface on the market—and they really are really built to last. Nutricraft cookware is heirloom cookware, and its 50-year warranty is transferable to the next generation.

If your Mum (or Grandma, or Aunty, or whichever special woman you're buying for) is into holistic wellness and up for supplements, this Mother's Day gift idea is for them!
Golden Grind offers a unique opportunity for customers to either shop their ready-made blends which address concerns like sleep, immunity, focus, and gut health, or to order a tailor-made blend that addresses a person's unique concern. Either way, these supplements make an ultra-thoughtful Mother's Day gift.
16. Mother's Day Hampers
Whether it's classic flowers, something sweet, an indulgent package, or something to drink (if you know what we mean...), our range of Mother's Day hampers will bring delight to mamas, grandmothers, and mother figures Australia-wide this year.
We love ultra-fun Edible Blooms for some, umm...edible blooms, Gift Boss has quirky, unique, boutique gifts that are sure to bring plenty of smiles to recipients' faces, and LVLY Flowers is our pick for gorgeous blooms.
17. Restaurant Vouchers
In a post-COVID world, it's no secret that Australian families are relishing the opportunity to dine out again—which makes a gift voucher the perfect Mother's Day gift idea!
Why not buy vouchers for one of her favourite cafes or restaurants? And, if you're in NSW you can be supplemented by Dine and Discover! Alternatively, if that special lady is a bit of a thespian, she'll love spending a night out at the theatre with a theatre voucher.
18. The Daily Edited
Mother's Day gift ideas don't get more personal than personalised goodies, and few things say luxury quite like sumptuous leather goods—and monogrammed leather goods at that! The Daily Edited range is unrivalled so whether it's a bag, wallet, travel case, cosmetics pouch, or phone case—these gorgeous pieces can be personalised for an extra-special finish.
19. Pamper Products
It's a bit of a cliché but for good reason! Mums are notoriously busy people, forever putting other people's needs ahead of their own, which makes pamper products an excellent Mother's Day gift idea to force them to stop, relax and soak up a bit of peace and quiet.
The Body Shop has a beautiful range of gifts, from bath and body to fragrance, hair and makeup. Lush is another great place to shop for some universally appreciated gems, and you can never go wrong with some luxe goodies from Aesop.
20. Cocktail Kits
For mums who like nothing more than to celebrate the weekend with a cheeky cocktail, top off dinner with a drop of fine wine or just pamper themselves with a tipple or two on special occasions (and isn't everyday special?), you can get incredible deals on custom cocktail kits from a number of brands, including Cocktail Porter, The Cocktail Shop, Mr Consistent, and Gourmet Basket.
21. Frank Green Coffee & Tea
In our opinion, hot drinks are one of the most simple pleasures of motherhood (or make that adulthood!), and nothing says "I love you" like "you deserve to enjoy your tea or coffee hot". Frank Green's gorgeous selection of beautifully designed, innovative, and sustainable reusable cups and bottles make the perfect Mother's Day gift. From French presses and tea sets to gorgeous ceramic containers and accessories - Frank Green have all of your hot beverage needs covered. Our top picks are the Desk Buddy Gift Set and Sustainable Sips range. Swoon!
22. Experience Gift Vouchers
A great way to insist on some one-on-one bonding time with your mum is to book the activity yourself! Red Balloon has something for every type of mum with every type of interest—from hot air ballooning and a champagne breakfast in the Hunter Valley to dolphin cruises, city staycation deals, and a range of culinary masterclasses.
23. Subscription Boxes
The gift that literally keeps on giving, there are so many subscription boxes that make the perfect Mother's Day gifts. We love beauty boxes like bellabox and 'tis the box or Club Candle for scent and candle lovers! There's also Goodness Me Box which brims with healthy goodies, or Cocktail Porter for a quarterly gift that will keep you stocked up on the cocktail front.
