Just a List of the Perfect Gifts for Every Mum, Because She Deserves It

I don’t know about your mum, but my Mum loves a bloody good beauty gift

Not only does this make gift shopping easy all year round, but it allows beauty to become something through which we can connect. 

It feels good to buy her something special and luxe she wouldn’t buy herself, and just as good to gift her something practical I know will suit her skin type and concerns. 

If it makes her friends jealous in the process, that’s just a bonus. 

So, if you want your gift to be a front runner this year, this guide has a range of gifts to suit every kind of Mum. 

After all, not every mum is super into candles (even though we still think they make a really great gift).

The gift to give the mum who loves skin care

My go-to christmas gift for mum is always skin care. Particularly cosmeceuticals. The reason my mum loves cosmeceuticals is because they help improve the appearance of her skin in a significant way. Plus, they are fun to use. The Asap B + DNA Renewal Treatment contains two of their cult favourite products. The first is the asap Super B Complex serum, which uses Niacinamide to reduce inflammation and redness. The second is the asap DNA renewal treatment, which is a peptide serum that targets premature ageing. Together, the two make for a refreshing evening routine with brightening benefits I know she’ll just love.

The gift to give the mum who loves skin care

Not everyone's mum is into skin care, and that’s okay. If you're looking for gift ideas for mum that are a little bit different, why not try a unique scent? While buying scent for someone else can be really daunting, if you get it right it can be a really special gift she will definitely remember. The Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Set comes with an EDT, Body Lotion, Shower Gel, all inside a sleek, silver box. This elegant scent is clear and floral, containing notes of Lotus, Melon, Peony, Cedar and Musk. It’s an enchanting scent that doesn’t get old, and works beautifully as a day perfume in summer.

If there is one thing we know, it's that mums deserve a break. So remember that when you look to buy gifts for mum this Christmas. The Carreire Freses Diffuser - Sandalwood is a great gift for busy mums Australia wide because of the laid back, calming ambiance it creates in any environment. Designed to last 8-12 weeks, this fancy diffuser fills the room with a rich Sandalwood scent presented in a blue tinted recycled glass bottle. The untreated rattan sticks make for optimal diffusion, so your mum can sit back, relax and enjoy the light, luxurious aroma.

We have a whole category full of the best gifts for new mums, but this happens to be one of our favourites. The Burt's Bees Baby Bee Getting Started Kit is perfect for new mums, with products ideal for both mums and bubs. This kit contains baby soap, massage oil, lotion, ointment, shampoo and wash. All contain extremely gentle, nourishing cruelty-free formulas perfect for caring for delicate baby bees. Cute, simple and practical - this gift is a thoughtful way to help Mums and their babies along on their special journey.

For mums that don’t want luxe skin care or ritzy perfumes, try something practical. One of our favourite christmas gift ideas for mum this year is a haircare back, that might just change her mind about experimenting with new shampoos. The Goldwell Kerasilk Control Trio contains their Kerasilk Control Shampoo, Conditioner and Texturising Finishing Spray, which help bring damaged hair back to life. It’s a useful gift for mum if she loves colouring or heat styling, or even has hair that is damaged by UV. While they come in glamorous gold packaging, these products really hit the mark when it comes to efficacy, making them an ideal gift for fussy mums that need every box ticked.

Cheap gift ideas for mum make perfect stocking stuffers. The one we have our eye on is the Lanolips 101 Ointment Pyramid Bauble, which contains their original formula in this super cute, decorative packaging. Nothing feels more christmas-y than a christmas bauble, plus she’ll love this super versatile formula, which contains ultra hydrating Lanolin and Lanolin oil. It’s a little gift she won’t forget, and a great gift to add to any Christmas present for mum this year.
