But really, how can you properly say “thank you” to the woman who gave you the gift of life? Start with one of these Mother’s Day gifts to celebrate mom the right way.

Before you browse, think about what kind of gift the lady in your life would love to receive on her special day — something meaningful, something that she can use in her garden, and so on — and go from there. Don’t let the importance of the holiday intimidate you: No matter your budget,

Need a few Mother’s Day gift ideas? Our curated collection is full of heartfelt gifts and beautiful Mothers Day cards that she’ll love.
We have loads of great Mother’s Day ideas in these pages, from personalised jewellery to indulgent pamper packs and gourmet goodies.

For brand new mums, we have first Mothers Day gifts like personalised totes for carrying around all that baby stuff, and cute little onesies with fun slogans like ‘the reason my mum drinks’. And because we know new mums really deserve a break, there’s also lush-smelling soaps (for the rare occasion when mum gets to chill), relaxation candles and spill-proof wine glasses (essential for new mums).
For cool mums, you’ll also find equally cool mothers day gifts in our collection – think sexy pyjamas, slogan tees, personalised aprons-with-attitude and anything leather. For quirky mums, we have slightly more unusual mothers day gifts, like a personalised hanging mug vase or a mini cup of tea in a matchbox.
The best mothers day gifts are those that can be personalised. Our picks include glass jewellery boxes that can be engraved with a special message to mum, and jewellery that can be customised with a charm for each family member. The personalised mothers day gifts within these pages will make Mum happy for years to come.

WHEN IS MOTHERS DAY IN AUSTRALIA? SUNDAY THE 9TH OF MAY, 2021.
We celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May in Australia. So Mother’s Day is on Sunday the 9th of May 2021 (09/05/2021).
However, the answer to ‘What date is Mothers Day?’ differs depending on what country you’re in. While, like Australia, the USA also celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May — the UK celebrate it exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
But for those down under, make sure you have your Mothers day gifts ready by the second Sunday of May — the 10th of May in 2020.
IS MOTHER’S DAY A PUBLIC HOLIDAY?
No. Mums don’t ever get a day off – so why should we?! Unfortunately, Mother’s Day is not a public holiday. Many Mums are still working on their special day. So if your Mum is working on Mothers Day — you better make sure you spoil them after work!
And remember, restaurants and bars can get very busy with families celebrating together on Mother’s Day. So if you’re planning to take Mum out to a nice dinner; make a booking.
WHAT IS MOTHER’S DAY AND WHY DO WE CELEBRATE IT?
Mothers Day is a special day to celebrate how awesome Mums are. You already know why we celebrate it; because Mums give us the help, love, and support that makes all the difference in the world. They give us everything — every day. So Mothers Day is our chance to let them know how much we appreciate everything they do for us.
WHAT TO GET MUM FOR MOTHERS DAY?
You can’t beat the Mother’s Day trio: a meal, a card, and a gift. Make (or take her to) a nice meal, write her a card with a heartfelt message, and get her a gift that she’ll love. They’re the three Mothers Day ideas that matter most. If you do those three things your Mum is guaranteed to have a memorable day.
WHAT TO WRITE IN MOTHERS DAY CARD?
As you’ve got to have a Mothers Day card to go with your Mothers Day gift — you’ve got to have a heartfelt message to go inside your Mother’s Day card.
Here are the top ten ideas for what to write in a Mother’s Day card.
1. Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
2. A mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. Thank you for being my mum!
3. Happy Mother’s Day to the best Mum in the whole world; for being there for me in good times and bad, and for always believing in me.
4. Happy Mother’s Day to the greatest Mum I could ever have asked for.
5. Any woman can be a mother, but it takes someone special to be a “Mum”. Thank you for being that special someone for me!
6. I love how you don’t even need to say out loud that I’m your favourite child.
7. I’m so lucky to have you as my mother… I’m sure no one else would have put up with me this long. Happy Mother’s Day!
8. Only a mother as perfect as you… could have a (daughter/son) as perfect as me. Happy Mother’s Day!
9. My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it. – Mark Twain
10. Happy Mother’s Day, to a loving, selfless, hard-working Mum.
