Mother's Day 2020 just got a whole lot easier thanks to our awesome gift guide.

Here are some great gift suggestions for all the mums who pride themselves on being, well...not ya average Ma!

Boden spotty cashmere jumper, $240

Every mum loves a nice bit of cashmere – pity most of the stuff on offer is stuffy and stitched-up. Not this gorgeous spotty jumper from Boden. Not only is it made with cashmere sourced from inner-Mongolia (that’s the good quality stuff), it’s also manufactured to be machine-washable. We’re in love.

Cool coffee cup, $16

Mum will absolutely love this gorgeous statement travel mug from Bouffants & Broken Hearts, made from new bone china and silicone – it’s perfect for on-the-run sipping. Illustrator Kendra Dandy has provided the design for this cute cup, and we’re loving its bright, retro stylings. 

Mums and kids twinset t-shirts sets, $108.90

Mum’s tee comes in sizes small to extra large, while the mini version comes in 0-6, right up to 9-10. All together now...naaaaw!

Camisole boxer set, $139

OK, so this is a little on the expensive side, but how great are these Lekker electronic bikes? The Jordaan+ Women’s E-bike is standard fitted with Premium LED lights, kickstand, bell, front and rear rack, fenders and vinyl saddle and grips. And it has a Samsung compact battery! Mum will be positively flying up those hills!

Silk pillowcase, $95

Sleeping on silk pillowcases is the beauty secret of countless celebs, models and influencers – apparently it can stop you getting wrinkles! Now mum can get in on the act too with this gorgeous Slip silk pillowcase. Made from 100% pure silk, it’s of the highest quality and feels absolutely GORGEOUS on your crow’s feet.

Kip and Co slippers, $35

Who says slippers have to be daggy? These fluffy little numbers from Kip and Co come in a range of fabulous colours, and have been designed for maximum comfort and bling. They’re 100% polyester, but feature a rubber sole, meaning mum can also rock them down the shops! We’re in love!

SowNSow seeds, $9.95

Say it...with seeds! We’re in love with great Aussie company, SowNSow, who make gorgeous giftable seed packets. They’ve released a Mother’s Day Snapdragon selection, complete with stunning packet illustration by Daniella Germain. This is the gift that keeps on giving, and is sure to bring a smile to mum’s face. 

Wine, $21.99

The new Jacob’s Creek Better By Half range is half the calories and half the alcohol of similar wines – that’s 5.5% and 36 calories per 100ml glass – which is a winner in our eyes. If your mum is all about moderation but still loves a sneaky glass of wine, this gift might just put you in her good books. Available from Liquorland and First Choice.
