The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide (Or For Anyone Who Deserves a Treat!)

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Trying to figure out what to get the mum in your life can be TRICKY, but we’ve done our best to round up an eclectic mix of gift ideas for Mother’s Day next Sunday!

For the mum who loves a bit of sparkle
Boh Runga x Anika Moa Marigold Keepsake Collection

Marigold Mini Pendant and Pendant in 14k gold plate, from $399.00

An extension of Boh and Anika’s best-selling Marigold locket, the new collection is perfect for a bit of everyday elegance, and a great reminder of how much you love your māmā!

For the mum who just wants to spend time with you (but you also want to treat!)
Park Hyatt Mother’s Day – High Tea, Lunch and Spa Treatments and kingi at The Hotel Britomart

It’s the height of Mother’s Day indulgence – an afternoon of fancy little bites and long luxurious massages! Go for a five-course afternoon tea in the Park Hyatt’s Living Room, followed by the treatment of her dreams in The Spa.

Or if brunch is more your mum’s vibe, head to kingi in Auckland’s Britomart – they’ve partnered with Isadia Floral who will have gorgeous bouquets available for purchase in the hotel’s laneway. Easy!

For the mum who needs a little spice in her life
Lovehoney Desire Luxury Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator

Desire Luxury Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator, Purple, hi-res
Clitoral vibrator, RRP $114.95

OK YES we hear you, talking to your mum about sex toys – let alone gifting her one – might be a bit odd BUT this is 2021 ladies, and everyone deserves the best possible bedroom experience, especially if the world of self-pleasure toys might be new! The Desire Clitoral vibrator is shaped like a pebble, fitting in one hand and super portable. Plus the tapered tip, targets the clitoris for waves of pleasure. Featuring eight whisper quiet vibration patterns and pulses with 12 levels of intensity.

For the mum who loves to crack open a few cold ones
Huski Beer Cooler 2.0

Huski Beer Cooler 2.0 RRP from $39.99

No one likes a warm beer – ew – so this wee gadget is a life saver. One of life’s best little pleasures, gift Mum the experience of every single beer staying ice cold – and it fits almost any bottle or can. Beer, soda or kombucha, you’re covered – plus the bottom of the cooler features a built-in detachable bottle and can opener, and the cooler also doubles as a tumbler.

For the mum who loves putting on a face
Revlon ColorStay Satin Ink LipColor

ColorStay Satin Ink LipColor in Fired Up, RRP $30

Mums do NOT have time to keep applying lipstick all day – but a good swipe of the perfect red can completely change the game! And trust us – this lippy does not budge, even after a few rosés with the girls!

For the mum you REALLY owe and whose life you want to make as easy as possible
Samsung 8.5kg AddWash Smart Front Load Washer and Heat Pump Tumble Dryer

WW85T554DAW-SA Washer & DV90T5240AW-S6 dryer

You know you’re getting older when you get excited about new washing machines and dryers, but these ones are especially cool – from having the ability to be able to be controlled via your phone (can you imagine a world where you can set a wash at work, with it finishing up just before you got home, or one that sends you reminders when the load is done so you don’t accidentally leave it in there?!) through to AI that learns your family’s wash habits and automatically programmes the most effective and efficient wash, this is a serious step in cutting down on all the boring stuff that we all have to do!

For the mum who will never buy anything nice for herself
Taken Care Of Box

Morning Ritual
Taken Care Of Morning Ritual Box RRP $90

Well it’s in the name, isn’t it! If your mum is one of the ones who puts everyone else before herself, then an awesome hamper is just what she needs to enjoy a little time to herself. Taken Care Of have plenty of pre-picked boxes, but you can also design your own that’s perfect for your mum!

For the mum who loves simple style and also loves supporting a good cause
Witchery x Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation White Shirt

White shirt, RRP $149.90

A classic white shirt never goes out of style – and with the added bonus of supporting a great cause, the annual Witchery White Shirt Campaign is a fab excuse to update your wardrobe – and with hilarious Aussie comedian Celeste Barber fronting the 2021 campaign, it’s the best one yet!

For the mum who loves a cheeky chard
Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Chardonnay

VillaMaria SingleVineyard Marlborough TaylorsPass Chardonnay 2015
Taylors Pass Chardonnay, $RRP $49.99

What do mums enjoy more than a glass of buttery chardonnay? Well, probably you there to enjoy a glass with her! But if you’re going to give your mum a drop of New Zealand’s finest, look to Villa’s single vineyard collection for the best of the best.

For the mum who loves the house to smell good
Ecoya Spicy Tuberose Madison Candle
and Glasshouse Fragrances A Moment in Tokyo

Spicy Tuberose Madison Candle
Spicy tuberose madison candle, $54.99

You can never go wrong with a scented candle, and while Ecoya has a limited edition scent on the scene, treat herself to a new smell! With white florals and with top notes of hyacinth and gardenia, it’s a fresh and sensual fragrance.

A Moment in Tokyo
A Moment in Tokyo Scented Candle, RRP $54.99

Or go for something a little more seductive with incense, violet and old leather with Glasshouse Fragrances’ best-selling Kiwi candle, A Moment in Tokyo.

For the mum that’s too damn hard to buy for but you still love her
