With Mother’s Day approaching I have put together a list of gorgeous gifts for Mum! I realise that is mums that mainly read this blog but figure that most mums get asked for gift ideas so if that is you, you can send them to this post or specific links from this post.
The collection of gifts for Mum below range from low price at around $20 to gifts over $300. The bulk of the gift suggestions for Mum fall under $100 though. I have categorised the gifts for mum into under $50, under $100 and over $100.
Gifts for Mum under $50
Amber White Book Light Rechargeable – This reading light is brilliant. One of the kids received one for Christmas and it works so well because it is easy to use as it doesn’t have to be plugged in to use and it is amber light. Amber light is better for reading at night because it has a lower color temperature and reduces the amount of blue light emitted, which can disrupt the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle and make it harder to fall asleep after reading. Charges via USB outlet, 2 hours of charge will give roughly 16 hours of usage.
Yes Yes Yes Tote Bag – for the mum that wants to show her support for the Indigenous Voice To Parliament this 100% cotton canvas is the perfect gift.
How to Change – The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be By: Katy Milkman – I have read many books about habits and this is by far my favourite. It is actionable, science based and easy to read. A perfect gift for the mum who is wanting to make some changes in her life. You can see my full review of the book here. And if you are after more book ideas you can see more book reviews here.
High Protein Hot Chocolate – this hot chocolate is the perfect gift for mum who wants a delicious treat that is higher in protein and super good for you. I recently shared about how important it is for women to eat enough protein and this hot chocolate makes it easy to get extra protein in. I love this hot chocolate and have it without any milk and think it tastes delicious.
Personalised phone case – these phone cases are both durable and lightweight with a permanent printed design that snaps onto your phone. They’re made from quality soft TPU gel with a crystal clear print and a matte finish, while the design is printed only on the back and the sides remain clear. You can have mum’s name printed on it!
Outlive: The Science and Art of Longevity By Peter Attia MD – this book is on my wish list! Dr Peter Attia is one of the world’s top longevity experts and he believes we must replace this outdated framework with a personalised, proactive strategy for longevity. This isn’t ‘biohacking,’ it’s science: a well-founded strategic approach to extending lifespan while improving our physical, cognitive and emotional health, making each decade better than the one before. With Outlive‘s practical advice and roadmap, you can plot a different path for your life, one that lets you outlive your genes to make each decade better than the one before.

The Daily Rabbit creator Lyn uses a variety of Fused Filament Fabrication machines: designing, CAD-modelling and producing all 3D printed elements.

Adapt Drinks – yes a plug for my own business! Adapt Drinks is an excellent gift for mum if she has been busy and is feeling the need for more relaxation in her life. The drinks contain L-theanine which is an amino acid that is not commonly found in our diets. It is primarily found in tea, particularly in green tea, but can also be taken as a dietary supplement. L-theanine has been shown to have a range of benefits for cognitive function and relaxation. The adaptogenic herbs in the drinks are supportive to the body’s ability to cope with stress. Schisandra berry is one of the adaptogens in the drink and along with helping to cope with stress has also been found to be a safe and effective complementary medicine for menopausal symptoms, especially for hot flushes, sweating, and heart palpitations.
