Mother’s Day gifts can be a little be hard to decide on, because really, what do you give to the woman who raised you and looked after you for some of the most crucial years of your life? While personalized “Mum” mugs and teddy bears are great, you may want to think outside the box this year to give your Mum a great surprise with something she’ll really love and certainly not be expecting. Check out our list of unique gift ideas to really give mum something she deserves this Mother’s Day.

Give an Experience

If you’re Mum is someone who likes a bit of adventure in her life, think about the range of packages that are now available that offer an “experience”, not just a gift. A number of companies can arrange adrenaline packed Mother’s Day surprises, including everything from hot air balloon rides to diving with sharks, bridge climbs and everything in between.

Edible Treats

Skip the boring box of chocolates this year and get your Mum something that’s both yummy and very pretty to look at! If your Mum has a bit of a sweet tooth, you can still get her a gift that’s delicious but also presented in a very cool way. Beautiful edible flowers are a great option, while you can’t go wrong with a giant cookie that’s personalized with your very own message!

Electronic Cigarette

This great and very unique present can work for both you and your mum. If you’re mum is a smoker, helping her to make the switch to vaping can be a great way for her to kick the habit for good. If she’s not a smoker, you’re buying her one of the hottest new trends around the world. Electronic cigarettes come in both nicotine and nicotine free options, so they’re great for every Mum. Check out blackhawx.com and see what flavours your Mum would like, they have everything for sweet strawberry to smooth coffee.

Take a Tour

Planning something that involves a day out, combined with a present if sure to win over your mum. A day spent with the family will be a gift enough itself for her, but why not take her out with a tour of a vineyard in your local region – wine tasting and dining on delectable canapés is a great alternative to the traditional Mother’s Day brunch.

A Gift that Keeps on Giving

If you want your present to last a little longer than just the day, why not look into presents that literally keep on coming? Magazine subscriptions are a great idea and your mum will be thinking of you every time her favourite new issue is released each month. If you want something that’s a little more active, why not look into membership for a favourite wine club or art class that you’re mum will love. There is also a fun new range of sample boxes that are delivered to your door monthly. You can choose from beauty products to yummy treats and just about everything in between – your mum will love being surprised with these new goodies each month!

Oh I almost forgot about Mother's Day. I have to think what to get for my dear Mom-in-law. She likes to eat outside so maybe a nice lunch with my family will make her happy.
