So, you’ve been living under a rock where time moves faster than ever before. One minute it was January and now someone asked you what you’re doing for Mother’s Day. Naturally you say, who plans that far in advance?

It turns out Mother’s day has been the 2nd sunday in May since 1907, so if not everyday is mother’s day in your family, you have just a few days to think of something to make the woman who gave you life feel special.

To help you, we’ve put together some Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.

For the flower lover


Julep is an amazing flower delivery service that delivers a beautiful box to your door. They curate stunning collections like this one and the packaging is A+. They also deliver straight to your [mom’s] door. Not only are they exquisite, the flowers last longer than any other flowers we’ve gotten.

For the aromatherapy lover


We have been Aromadough fans for years. Their classic aromadough is an upgrade on the old school stress ball concept and they get Zissy through every dental visit. They don’t only sell playdough, their store is an aromatherapy lover’s dream. Ps. If you want to win a R2500 Aromadough gift set, we are running a competition with Penguin and Aromadough – details here.


For the active moms

Bob and brad massage gun

Nothing soothes muscles after a workout or long day like a Massage gun. We’ve recommended a few but we are busy testing a super cool one that has a hot and cold function. Review coming soon but in the meantime you can find it here.

For the hygiene enthusiast


We are massive fans of Curopox and have been using their toothbrushes for years. They are excellent, gentle and really bright and beautiful. All their toothbrushes are great but we think their travel set makes a great gift. And, if you want to splurge, their electric toothbrush is supposed to be excellent – one day I may splurge on this.


For the ones who love to snuggle

Fleece pyjamas

The best part of winter is (IMO) is soft and cuddly sleepwear. This PJ set from Woolies is super soft and comfortable, comes in a few colors and is currently on sale.

For the chocolate lover


Instead of buying a generic box of chocolates from the grocery store why not put together a basket of really interesting ones from Faithful to nature? This Mocha coffee buttercup sounds delicious, as do these dark chocolate peanut butter cups.

For the jewellery lover


This one might be too late for this year but why not get a head start and order one for next year? Meraki now offer a bouquet personalised collection that combines your loved one’s Birth Flowers in a necklace or bracelet (available in Sterling Silver and Gold)

For the cook


Cookbooks are expensive but can offer priceless inspiration and serve you for years to come. You can check out all the ones we have reviewed here, but you can’t go wrong with any of these and these.

The Four Winds

We love books and reading and have plenty of recommendations here. If you don’t have time to decide and want a knockout, The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah is sensational.

For the one who forgets where she puts her phone
