With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the incredible women who raised us and continue to support us. This special day offers the chance to express our love and gratitude for all that mums do. But finding the perfect gift can feel overwhelming. After all, you're here 'cause you don't have a gift in mind, do you? We’ve put together a thoughtful Mother's Day gift guide to help you choose a personalised gift showing Mum how much you care; find inspiration below!

Selecting a Gift That Reflects Appreciation

The best Mother's Day gifts go beyond the generic. Personalisation is key. Consider what makes your mum special. Does she have a favourite hobby? Is there something she's been wanting to try? A thoughtful gift shows you've been paying attention and that you appreciate her unique personality. Here are some things to consider:

  • Understand what mum loves. What makes her eyes light up? Is she a fan of the arts, or does she prefer the great outdoors? Pinning down her hobbies and interests is step one in your quest for the perfect gift.
  • Who are you gifting to? Is it your mum? A mum friend? Or are you looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift for an expectant mother? Consider what kind of mum you'e gifting to so you can put extra thought into your gift.
  • Think about her lifestyle. If your mum is always on the go, a spa day or a gift certificate for a massage might be perfect. If she prefers to stay home, a cosy blanket and a subscription to her favourite streaming service could be ideal.
  • Make it personal. A handwritten card expressing your love and appreciation is always a cherished gift. You could even create a photo album or a framed piece of art that captures a special memory.

Unique Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Every Type of Mum

There's a perfect Mother's Day gift for every mum, no matter her interests. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

For the Foodie

For the mum who delights in culinary adventures, a gourmet basket filled with exotic treats or a cooking class experience could be the way to her heart. It's a gift that is both delicious and memorable.

For the Artsy

Does your mum have a flair for the creative? Spark her imagination with high-quality art supplies or a membership to the local museum. These gifts not only show thoughtfulness but also encourage her to pursue her artistic endeavours.

For the Tech-Savvy

For the mum who's always up-to-date with the latest tech, why not surprise her with a new gadget? Or better yet, gift her an online course subscription to master her tech skills.

For the Nature Lover

If fresh air and green spaces are Mum's sanctuaries, consider gifting her a beautiful plant or planning an outdoor adventure trip. These unique gifts offer the chance to connect with nature and rejuvenate.

For the Fashion-Forward

Designer accessories or a personal stylist session could be the ultimate treat for the stylish mum. It's a way to pamper her and celebrate her sense of style.

For the Expectant Mum

Even soon-to-be-mums should be celebrated on Mother's Day! A sure way to start is through pampering - a prenatal massage, a subscription box for expecting mothers, or a comfortable pregnancy pillow. A new baby hamper is also a nice way to share your joy and support for their growing family.

Personalised Gifts

Nothing says "I appreciate you" quite like personalised gifts. Whether custom jewellery with a meaningful inscription or a photo album filled with cherished memories, these gifts carry a personal touch that Mum will love. Another option is to create a custom NZ gift box. About Giving allows you to create your own hamper, choosing from a lovely range of goodies that Mum will love!

Experience Gifts

Sometimes, the best gifts aren't things but experiences. A relaxing spa day or a weekend getaway can provide Mum much-needed relaxation and joy. It's about creating memories that last a lifetime.

The Gift of Time

Ultimately, the most precious gift you can offer is your time. Spending the day together or taking over chores to give her a break speaks volumes. It's a simple yet powerful way to show your appreciation.


The Perfect Gift

For a truly unique gift, consider creating a personalised experience. Plan a picnic in the park paired with a delectable gift box you two can share. Help her with a project she's been putting off or offer to take care of the housework for a day. The key is to ensure your gift comes from the heart and show your mum how much you love and appreciate her. For a thoughtful and personalised present that she’ll remember, customise an About Giving gift box for Mum today!
