Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

08 May 2019

Christ almighty, on Sunday it’s Mother’s day and I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s unexpectedly crept up. Kinda like a cold when you least expect it. Except colds suck and mums are awesome.

I digress.

Anyway here are 13 PHENOM last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas…

Silk Pillowcase 

Find out what the benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase are here and then buy both yourself AND her one for MD. 100% silk and available in a few different colours, these are an affordable, thoughtful and useful gift.

Makeup Brush Set

My mum is obsessed with the nude and rose gold detailing on these bad boys and although your mum might not know what some of these are for, you can show her this video to help her understand!

VAYA’s Drynk Gulper & Sipper 

The latest beverage receptacle on the block is more boujee and versatile than the OG keep cup. Spoil mum with this stylish essential that will keep her hot drinks toasty for 12 hours and cold for over 18!

Trilogy Loving Everything You Gift Set

The ultimate pampering experience, the gift set includes three Trilogy faves; ‘Everything Balm’, ‘Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+’ and ‘Hydrating Mist Toner’ – all housed in a playfully designed reusable make-up bag for hassle-free gifting this Mother’s Day.

Showpo X Glamierre – Eyeshadow Palette

A mum-friendly eyeshadow palette (I don’t know about your mum but Jeffree’s latest Blue Blood palette probs isn’t appropes), these neutrals and warm pops of colours are really creamy and not too pigmented (no scary fall-out).

Friends Monopoly 

Ok if your mum quotes Ross from Friends on a regular basis, she’ll LOVE this new version of the classic Monopoly. Not only will she get some laffs from the game, but it will also be so nice to play a game together.


Us Aussie folk are experiencing a bit a temp drop; so spoil mum with a gorgeous knit, jacket or coat this Mother’s Day.

REPLAY Signature Secret EDT 

Many a mum will adore this unique and fresh new fragrance. Not too heady, and with the perfect blend of florals, spoil her with a brand new perfume.

Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist

Mum probably has seen or used the traditional, cult-buy Rosewater version, but she will be surprised and delighted with the brand-spanking new Lavender offering. All Jurlique products come packaged BEAUTIFULLY so it’s a real treat to open.

MAISON de SABRÉ Personalised Phone Case

Mum will be so chuffed with a luxe leather phone case, complete with personalised monogramming. The pieces from these guys are SUCH good quality and you can get other things like card holders and clutch bags too.

Weighted Blanket

If your mum gets stressed or anxious, a weighted blanket is the perfect gift. All the rage currently, they’re even nice cosy addition to a Sunday afternoon. The blankets look like normal blankets but they’re full of heavy small beads, the weight helping to calm and relax.

Jeffree Star Nudes 

Featuring 8 mini liquid lips in a range of rich and universally flattering shades, mum will love how this formula stays all day.

A Good Read

I love reading and my mum and I have very similar taste so I can pretty safely recommend these authors: Liane Moriarty, C.L Taylor, Shari Lapena, Jane Harper, Robert Galbraith, Jane Green and Adele Parks. For more recs, check out this article.
