Your (Very) Last-Minute Mother's Day Gift Guide


You swore it wouldn't happen, but you've left your Mother's Day gift to the last minute again. Hey, no judgement! We've all been there. But never fear - your last-minute gifting heroes are here to save the day.

As much as mum loves that annual box of chocolates or bunch of flowers, why not surprise her this year with something special that the two of you can enjoy together? Have a look at our Mother’s Day gift guide below to get inspired!

High Tea

This very English, very fancy and very decadent activity is one to be shared during a special occasion. Filled with dainty little crust-off sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, an assortment of sweets and cakes and of course, plenty of tea, this posh tradition is the perfect way to treat your mum. Scoop up a high tea in your city for less!


Pamper Package

Everyone loves a bit of pampering every now and then, but it’s not often they find the time to treat themselves. So why not treat mum with a double pamper package and take her into your local day spa for a girls’ day? There’s no better way of bonding than an afternoon spent enjoying a massage, facial, foot scrub or, even better, all of the above. Check out our range of luxe pamper packages here.

Day Cruise

Living in Australia, many of us are blessed to be close to the sea, harbour or river, so take advantage of it with one of the many day cruises on offer around the country. Mum will love a day spent out on the waters sipping champagne and admiring the native flora and fauna, so give her the gift of a day out on the water!

Cooking Class

For something a bit different, a cooking class is always fun - and there are loads of different options to choose from, depending on your preference. From Spanish cooking to macaron making, you won’t just learn how to cook different cuisines, but you’ll have loads of fun doing it - and there’ll be plenty of taste testing! Check out which cooking classes are running near you.
