Give Mum a Present She’ll Remember Forever
Do you struggle to pick the right gift for Mum or the mother of your child? It can be hard so we’re helping you out by giving some hot tips on the best presents for mothers.
Mums, like us all, change over the years. Mums with babies, toddlers and school kids may just want some peace and quiet away from the kidlets for a few hours. Mums of teenagers may like some appreciation and acknowledgement. And mothers of adult children may like something to hold dear to them.
Whether it’s Mother’s Day, a birthday, Christmas or some other gift giving occasion, this post about gifts for mums in and around Perth is sure to help you out at some point.
Gifts for the Adventurous Perth Mum
Just because a woman has given birth doesn’t mean she isn’t up for a little fun and adventure. When you give Mum a tandem skydive gift voucher, at first she may think you’re not being very kind. She may feel shocked that you want her to fall out of an airplane at 200 kmph. She may be nervous and not smiling at all. But then, she’s free falling over a beautiful coastline like Rottnest Island or over Busselton/ Margaret River, taking in a view that only the privileged get to see. And she smiles and can’t stop smiling. It’s a moment she’ll remember forever. Guaranteed.

Gift Ideas for the Busy Perth Mum
We’re all super busy these days but mothers are arguably the busiest of the bunch. Take a load off her. Offer to clean the house or do the laundry. Cleaning not your thing? Hire professionals. Who wouldn’t love for cleaners to turn up for two hours to do a general sweep of the high traffic areas or wash the windows? But whatever you do, don’t buy her a new iron or washing machine.

Gifts for the Stressed Perth Mum
Motherhood can be stressful. When you’re the mother of babies and toddlers, your days are full of feedings, nappy changing, crying, whining, playing, fussing, screaming, cuddling, power napping and hopefully, some laughing. These mums want – beg – for some toddler-free time. Organise a “kid-free” day that will guarantee Mum gets a day to herself. This one’s easy. Day spa. Send mum to the spa for some good old fashion pampering: nails, facial, massage, hair appointment – whatever the mum in your life likes best. Don’t know what she’d like? Ask her or buy a voucher so she can pick.

Gifts for the Sentimental Perth Mum
Mums love keepsakes. There’s a good chance that your mum (or mother of your child) has a stash of pictures, drawings, school awards, photos, baby clothes and old toys from your childhood. And she’d love to add to this collection. Professional photos make dandy gifts that keep giving year after year. Every time Mum sees the photos her child, she’ll smile.
More gifts that will warm Mum’s heart

- Hand written letter/card
- Family portraits (include Mum)
Gifts for the Faraway Mum
Did you know that there are 6.9 million people living in Australia who were born outside of the country? Not only are we migrating in large numbers, we’re moving within Australia too. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 366,400 people moved interstate in 2015 – 2016. If you live apart from your mum, gifting can be harder. One thing is certain: send a card. Forget emails or funny gifs and send an old-fashioned, snail-mailed greeting card. A card in the post will always make Mum smile.
More stuff mums will love
- A Voucher for a local spa, restaurant, theatre
- A Phone call
- A surprise visit
Gifts for Mum don’t have to be fancy or expensive. It’s nice if you can afford to pamper and spoil your mother sometimes but most mums are happy just to know you’ve remembered them. So, whether you choose to chuck Mama from a plane, clean her house or make a nice photo album for her, chances are she’ll cherish the gesture forever.
