Restaurant Vouchers
If the way to her heart is through her stomach, restaurant vouchers are a sure-fire hit this Mother's Day.

After the year that was 2020, it's no secret that Australian families are relishing the opportunity to dine out again—which makes a gift voucher perfect for Mother's Day! 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!

The Daily Edited mothers day gift
Personalisation is a lovely finishing touch to an already beautiful gift—thanks to The Daily Edited!

8. Pamper Products

Mother's Day pamper products
Lovingly cajole them into some downtime with a luxe gift of some beautiful pamper products.

It's a bit of a cliché - but for good reason. Mum's are notoriously busy people; forever putting other people ahead of their own needs, and pamper products are an excellent way 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, and Lush is another great place to shop for some universally appreciated gems. 

Let the good times roll this Mother's Day with brilliant bottles from the cellar door.

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 beautiful bottles at Cellarmasters and get a huge 25% cashback with Cashrewards. 

9. Frank Green Coffee & Tea

Mother's Day Gift ideas
Sip in style with these gorgeous reusable cups and bottles by Frank Green!

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! 

You can snap up Frank Green cups at David Jones with Cashrewards and get 2% cashback.



10. Experience Gift Vouchers

Mother's Day Experience gift vouchers
Spend some quality time together trying something new or indulge in an old pastime with an experience gift voucher.

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. Plus, Cashrewards members can get 3.5% cashback on the purchase of a Red Ballon experience.

11. Subscription Boxes

Subscription Boxes for Mother's Day
Spoil her every month or every few months with a subscription box!

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.
