Co-author: Garry Lu  | 

She gifted you with the miracle of life. The least you could do is gift her something better than a half-assed voucher for Mother’s Day.

Whether you’re looking to spend $100 or thousands, whether your mum is outdoorsy or a homebody, we’ve got you covered. Because this isn’t just a gift guide. This is a guide to showing her you care (and extending your residency in her good books).

Check out our hand-picked selection of Mother’s Day gifts for 2024 below.

The Greatest Mother’s Day Gifts In 2024


Diptyque “Cafe Diptyque” Candle

Scented candles are a tired gift… unless you do it well. This Diptyque candle, of course, is the exception to the rule. Newly minted, the range in question will warm up any space using the House’s famous craftsmanship, taking her nostrils on a direct flight to Cafe de Flore.

Unison Soft Pastel Botanical Kit

Mother's Day Gifts 2024: Unison Soft Pastel Botanical Kit

In many ways, the ultimate gift you could give her is peaceful alone time. This kit of soft pastels in botanical shades is easy to use, hard to mess up, and great for hands-on time outdoors.

Robert Gordon Pottery Class

In 2024, mum can be her own Patrick Swayze. Let her mirror a six-year-old you and bring home a piece of pottery (albeit much better made). For Melbourne, send her to Patrick Gordon’s studio. For Sydney, Project Snail.

The Dinner Party Cookbook

If your mum is the consummate host, add this secret weapon to her arsenal. It includes full menus, timings, playlists, and more to take the pressure off planning. That way, she can actually enjoy the parties instead.

Blunt Umbrella

Keep your mum eternally dry with these patented umbrellas. In 20+ colours and patterns, it’s guaranteed to stay upright.

Hommey Robe

Every day is spa day with this 100% cotton robe. Stylish and comfortable.

Olaplex Hair Treatment Kit

For the mum who’s colouring her hair (all power to her), this will be the best aftercare she could ever hope for.

Country Road Heat Pack

As the months get colder, a heat pack can be a great way to soothe aching extremities. We like this one from Country Road, which feels less “frail old lady” and more “stylish self-care.”

Etoile Travel Case

Your mum may already have a snazzy suitcase, so why not get her a smaller bag? This cosmetic carry case is compact, durable, and has foldable sides so she can see where she’s reaching.

T2 Tea Time Retreat Gift Pack

If you want to give mum a retreat closer to home, then look no further than a cup of tea. This pack includes tea, a teacup, and a candle for a sensory escape.

Perrier-Jouët Blason Rose

Let’s face it. Mum needs a drink.

A Life In Garden Design by Paul Bangay

If your mum spends her spare time gardening, then she might enjoy this retrospective on one of Australia’s greats: Paul Bangay.

Prophet Song by Paul Lynch

Mother's Day Gifts 2024: Prophet Song by Paul Lynch

For the mum who reads, there’s always the Booker Prize winners. In 2023, it was the best-selling dystopian novel Prophet Song by Irish author Paul Lynch. Described as a haunting “literary manifesto for empathy,” it follows mother of four Eilish Stack, who attempts to save her family as the Republic of Ireland slips into totalitarianism.

It’s also worth considering the following shortlisted for the 2023 Booker Prize if you’re after some variety: This Other Eden by Paul Harding ($44) and Study For Obedience by Sarah Bernstein ($25).


Haws Warley Fall Watering Can 9L

If it ain’t broke… British brand Haws knows this all too well. This “fall” head can from the world’s oldest watering can company will be a welcome and stylish addition to Mum’s garden.

Kindle Paperwhite 32 GB

Kindles are no-brainers for any reader: cheap books on the go that you can read in any environment. The rest of your mum’s book club could only be so lucky.

Dinosaur Designs Vase

These resin vases are all one-of-a-kind and come in a wide range of colours. You’ve likely seen these before (and she probably has too).

Lululemon Hooded Jacket

Step up her athleisurewear game with one of these hooded jackets. Perfect for the incoming colder months.

New Balance 574

New Balance aren’t just dad kicks. They’re also pretty elite mum kicks.

Jabra Elite 10

To drown out the sound of your family’s BS.

KitchenAid Attachments

Mother's Day Gifts 2024: KitchenAid Attachments

For the mum who spends time creating in the kitchen using the trusty KitchenAid. Anything from pasta, zoodles (zucchini noodles), sausages, granita, and even grated cheese can be made with these.

Etat Libre D’Orange Like This

Designed by Tilda Swinton in collaboration with the unconventional French house that brought you Secretions Magnifiques (look it up) is an infinitely more wearable perfume reminiscent of “home.” For mums who shy away from florals, this is a warm, spicy, gentle fragrance as comforting as pumpkin soup on a rustic kitchen table.

Fine Day Sleepwear

Let mum lounge in style with these Scandi-inspired sets.

RIMOWA Essential Cabin

As far as travel companions go, you’ll be hard-pressed to do any better than the RIMOWA Essential Cabin. Reliable and lightweight, this high-performance polycarbonate baby comes in eight distinct colourways, but our pick is definitely the Sea Blue variant.

Alohra Handmade Delux Oval Picnic Basket

This handmade deluxe picnic basket with a complimentary 15-piece utensil kit is essentially the gift of quality time. Or at the very least, the future promise of quality time in the sun with a charcuterie board and whatever drop tickles her fancy that weekend. Bonus: for a limited time, you can cop it for just $149.


Mecca Biologique Recherche Treatment

Mecca Biologique Recherche Treatment

If you haven’t heard of this brand, it’s probably for good reason — Biologique Recherche is one of France’s best-kept secrets in skincare. Available now at two Mecca locations here in Australia, treat your mum to a consult and treatment as bespoke as a good suit.

Fink Jug

This Australian icon is the jug to end all jugs, and in a spectrum of colours, you’re sure to find one that will be the talk of any table setting.

Fornasetti Perfume

Your mum’s favourite brand of candles has just released a line of three perfumes guaranteed to reach a similar cult status. We reckon Giardino Segreto is the easiest to please: herby florals, green woods, and vegetal accords.

Sarah & Sebastian Tiny Lunette Necklace

It’s impossible to offend with one of these subtle, modern chains. Add a diamond. It’s the least you could do, really.

Thermomix TM6

In our house, we have a German sous-chef: Thermy. The Thermomix does next to everything: chop, slice, puree, freeze, braise… you name it. Mum will love the extra set of hands.

North Face 1996 Retro Nuptse Vest

From Sunday brunch to a jaunt in the mountains, this sleek number from North Face is versatile.

Salomon X Ultra 4 Mid Gore-Tex

For the outdoorsy mum who plans a hike every other weekend, get her the Rolls-Royce of trek shoes.

CR X Waverly 90s Reissue Throw

This Heritage-edition throw is classic, high-quality, and just a cracking idea.

Tissot Chemin de Tourelles

Like all things Tissot, this elegant timepiece is an ode to quality, precision, and performance. A wonderful entry-level Swiss watch.

Longines Evidenza

Longines Evidenza

Stylish. Nostalgic. And it’s a Longines. What’s not to love?

Grand Seiko SBGW299

An excellent showcase of Japanese craftsmanship, you’ll be securing the lion’s share of the inheritance with this one.

Chanel Boy Friend Watch

Like we said before — you’ve put mum through a lot. Pull out all the stops with a birthday-level gift. After all, she only brought you into the world. Though if you’re on a budget, you’ll be happy to hear there’s also a $7,650 variant.

Gwinganna Retreat

I know what we said about gift vouchers earlier but this is different. The ultimate peace and quiet can be found at Gwinganna — a luxury retreat that champions holistic living. Think Nine Perfect Strangers (without all the extra shenanigans).
