Mums! We’re celebrating all of them – the traditional mum, the step-mum, the aunt that acts like your mum, your grandma, your sister, everyone! It’s the hardest job in the world with the least amount of pay. But it’s rewarding as hell.

Say a big ol’ thank you to the mum in your life this Mother’s Day (but, also every day too!).

We’ve curated a list of must-haves to thought-starters to get your head-scratching for those gift ideas.

For the mum who loves shiny things

You can’t go wrong with jewellery – it’s like currency for (some) women. If your mum is a fan of all things shiny, dainty and pretty, jewellery is the way to go.

We’re home to dozens of accessory stores at Sylvia Park. From Steward Dawsons to Carati Jeweller, we’re positive you’ll be able to find something that your mum will love.

Here, we’ve picked simple but elegant pieces that we think elevates any look.

Walker & Hall – 9CT Yellow Gold Mini Entwined Hook Earrings | Michael Hill – Belcher Chain with Fob in Sterling Silver | Pascoes – Freshwater Pearl Drop Pendant | Pandora – Heart Charm Pendant

For the mum who loves pampering

Treat yo’self. Wise words that we live by daily. If your mum’s the type to have a 14 step skincare routine, or just loves to feel lush, then we suggest perfumes or serums. Gifts that make her feel like the QUEEN she is!

Sephora – Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau De Parfum | MECCA – GoTo Much Brighter Skin | Lush – Mum Gift Set | Farmers – Glasshouse Fragrances I’ll Take Manhatten Candle 

For the mum who loves to be active

Whether she enjoys a brisk walk in the park or a full-blown F45 workout, your mum will definitely appreciate these gifts.

We value comfort, but not at the expense of style! Besides, when you’re covered in sweat and your hair is in disaray, at least your outfit will stay slaying! These picks not only get the job done for the active mum, but also makes her shine above the rest.

Stirling Sports – Brasilia Training Duffle Bag Small | JD Sports – Nike Air Presto Casual Shoes | Lorna Jane – Ultimate S/Less Puffer Vest | The Warehouse – Fitbit Ace 3 

For the mum who's homely

If your mum is an entertainer or her pride and joy is her home, then you can’t go wrong with gifts that brighten up her space!

From luxurious silk pillows to an exquisite cheeseboard and knife set, we’ve picked gifts that shy away from your average gift purchases.

Adairs – Vintage Washed Linen Silk Pillowcase | Bed Bath n’ Beyond – Home Chic Pine Cheeseboard & Knife Set | Kmart – Ratten Look Round Wall Shelf | Bed Bath n ‘ Table – Archer Ribbed Round Footed Bowl


We often take for granted the people we need to be the most grateful for.

So whatever way you choose to express yourself, remember to reach out and show thanks to those who are mum-ing it.

Or let her take control with a Kiwi Property e-giftcard (CLICK HERE) delivered right to her inbox – just make sure she spends it on herself!

And if you are one of these Mums, THANK YOU for all you do and have a fabulous Mother’s Day!
