Top Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is just around the corner once again. Everybody has a mum, and we all love our mums don't we, so we want to get her something nice for mother's day.

It gets harder each year to find that perfect gift for mum, some mums are difficult to buy for, so here are a few suggestions to help make Mother's Day a real hit.

Oh, and don't forget a really nice Mothers Day Card.




Breakfast

So to start with how about make mum breakfast in bed? Make her very favourite breakfast, maybe pancakes, waffles or bacon and eggs and a nice cup of tea or coffee or some fresh orange juice. Set everything out nicely on a tray, use the nice cutlery and dishes, decorate the tray with a flower, and don't forget a napkin.

If your mum doesn't like breakfast in bed take her out to breakfast. Lots of restaurants and cafés serve breakfast and some will even be serving a special Mother's Day breakfast.

Sizzler Restaurants are doing a Mother's Day Breakfast Banquet, between 6.45am and 10am. All-you-can-eat for $25.95 for adults, $12.95 for children and $8.95 for children under 8 years of age.

Bookings are essential as seating is limited.




Brunch, Lunch or Dinner

Take mum out to her favourite restaurant for a meal on Mother's Day. Most restaurants are having special Mother's Day menus and bookings are essential.

If you like cooking maybe you can cook a meal for mum. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and make her a special meal she won't forget. Make her a favourite dish or if you are more adventurous try something different or a bit 'gourmet'.



Flowers or Plants

Most mums like a nice bunch of flowers or a plant and you can get some lovely ones around Mother's Day and they don't have to be too expensive either.

Flowers and plants are available from pretty much everywhere and there is a wide variety available at a range of prices to suit everyone. Try your local garden centre or you can even make up a nice hanging basket for your mum using her favourite plants.



Chocolates

Who doesn't like chocolates? Get mum a fancy box of her favourite choccies or there are specialty chocolate stores that have lots of different Mother's Day chocolate gift ideas.

There are loads of different chocolates, truffles and pralines to choose from, including hand-made personalised chocolates or you can get something made-to-order.

If you are feeling really crafty try your hand at making your own chocolates. It's fun and mum will love them.



Gift Cards, Gift Packs and Baskets

Gift Cards. There are plenty of gift card options to buy. You can get one from pretty much any store or shopping centre. Just choose a pretty card design, choose an amount, get the card loaded up and you're done. This way your mum can buy whatever she likes, whenever she likes.

Gift Baskets or Hampers. Get creative and make up your own gift basket or hamper. Buy a basket in a size of your choice. Then just fill it with items you think mum will like. Choose different foodstuffs and chocolates or toiletries and perfumes. Use your imagination, mix and match or go with a theme.

The choice is endless and you get to control the amount you spend. Then just wrap it all up in cellophane, add a bow and some ribbon and your good to go.


Gift Packs. Most stores have ready made up gift packs for mum.

Perfume is always popular or fancy soap, bath salts, cosmetics and body lotions and they are available in a variety of sizes and a range of prices.





Books

If mum likes to read buy her a book by her favourite author. Maybe get her something different like an autobiography. There are thousands of fiction and non-fictions books available plus books about cooking, gardening, art, renovating or even lifestyle and self-help books to choose from.

Sometimes you can get a signed edition which is nice and a bit more personal.

If you're still having trouble finding the right book perhaps you could get mum a gift card from her favourite bookshop, that way she can choose a great book herself.

There are so many books to choose from, you will be sure to find her something she will love.




DVD's and CD's

Get mum a DVD or her favourite movie or a movie starring her favourite actor. There are new release DVD's every week, or perhaps classic movies are more your mum's style. With plenty of genres to choose from such as romance, comedy, drama, thriller, horror plus documentaries, TV series, mini-series and life-style programs, the choice is practically endless.

If she likes music get her a CD. If you're not sure what to get there's always a gift card or an I-Tunes card.

There are loads of DVD's and CD's to choose from in a range of different prices.




More Ideas

Home Baked Goodies. Make some yummy homemade goodies as a treat for mum. Try cookies, cupcakes, a Mother's Day cake, fudge or rocky road. Wrap them in cellophane or put them in a pretty tin or box.

Framed Photo. Choose a nice photo that you think mum will like such as one of the kids, family or grandchildren. Get it printed in the size you require and put it in a nice frame. Or get one of those frames with multiple spaces for more pictures.

Another good idea is to get a photo album and fill it with photos, maybe from the last year or from a particular special occasion.

Jewellery. Every mum loves jewellery so surprise her with some nice earrings, a necklace or a bracelet. Jewellery stores have lots of gift ideas and usually have Mother's Day Sales so you should have no problem finding something just right.



These are only a few gift ideas. There are plenty more. Just use your imagination - I'm sure you can think of loads more, so if you do please let us all know what they are.
