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 Mother’s Day gifts for next Sunday!

P.S. If you’re shopping for a new mum, make sure you take a look at this list too.

A Lunch Date, Fit For a Princess

Take Mum to one of NZ’s most luxurious hideaway’s – Wharekauhau – for a very memorable lunch. Boasting the royal seal of approval from Princess Kate (who stayed there with Prince William and Prince George on a visit to New Zealand) Wharekauhau is the perfect place to celebrate mum this Mother’s Day with a special long lunch or rejuvenating spa day.

On Sunday 14th May, for $145 per person, you can escape to the wildly beautiful Palliser Bay, where you’ll be greeted with a glass of pink bubbles before sitting down to a sumptuous three-course lunch curated by Wharekauhau’s award-winning chefs. Complete with petits-fours, tea and coffee to round out the afternoon, it’ll be an experience fit for royalty

Wharekauhau Country Estate, $145 per person

Keep Her Warm Through Winter

With winter on the way, it’s the perfect time to get Mum cosy, with one of these ultra-soft (and cuddly) blankets, which are an absolute steal! They come in three different colours to make sure you get the right fit for your special mum!

Treat her to Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed is always such a treat, so turn up at your mum’s nice and early (but not too early – let the woman have a sleep in for once!) and present her with breakfast in bed set up on one of these cute bamboo trays. Made from bamboo veneer and an MDF base for durability, this tray features handles for mobility, while the foldable legs help in easy storage – perfect for hanging on to for future meals with her feet up!
