WHILE WE SHOULD be thanking our mums for everything they do everyday – if yours are anything like ours, they carry the family on their shoulders, keep the world spinning around and manage to do so in style – Mother’s Day is the official time to celebrate the matriarchs in your life. We all have our own ways of paying homage, whether it’s calling, visiting, sending a care package or planning a family get-together, but there’s no denying that a carefully selected gift goes that extra mile. Trust us: even if she insists all she wants is some quality time together, she’s not going to say no to a fragrance, bag or unforgettable experience.

Flowers are always a great option, and you can never go wrong with gifting a meal or a personalised voucher to her favourite restaurant. But, sometimes it’s nice to get a little more personal and creative when choosing a gift for the person who quite literally made you.

Here to assist in your search, we’ve curated a list of thoughtful, unique Mother’s Day gifts she’ll get a kick out of and, hopefully, cherish for years to come. Some are pure lookers, some impressively practical, all are exceptional. These are the unique Mother’s Day gift ideas Mum’ll be happy to receive and proud to show off, whether it’s a style flex, the latest tech, or a home upgrade.
