A Mother’s Day Gift Guide for the ‘Cool Mum’

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you’re probably already thinking about what to get her. Forget the generic flowers and chocolates; if you consider your mum to be a ‘cool mum’, chances are she’s going to appreciate something a little different to the norm.

Whether she’s a beauty fanatic or homewares enthusiast, we’ve curated an assortment of trendy, niche and versatile gift options to get her this year. Check them out below:

A scent from Libertine Parfumerie

If anyone else is down the rabbit hole on niche perfume TikTok like us, you’ll know just how many amazing scents there are out there. Not just your typical designer brands either; there’s a whole world of wild and wonderful scents just waiting to be discovered. For the mum who loves beauty, Libertine Partumerie is the perfect spot to pick up a special perfume.

Being a boutique parfumerie, you’re going to find scents you’ve never smelt before and brands you may never heard of. Libertine is full of perfumes from the lower end of the luxury level to thousands of dollars worth of scents, so there’s something for every mum. They’re also doing private Mother’s Day consultations right now, which you can book here.

Pink Serum from Synergie Skin

Serum is a staple in most mum’s skincare routines, so why not pick out a special one for Mother’s Day? Synergie Skin is a clean science skincare brand we’ve used for years and years, and they’ve never failed us. From moisturisers and cleansers to exfoliants and oils, their range is extensive and versatile.

We’re particularly loving their latest Pink Serum, which actually features not one, not two, but three different types of hyaluronic acid. The application is a gorgeous hot pink hue and smooth texture, so it just feels luxurious to use. It’s also rather lightweight and cooling, perfect for irritated or sensitive skin.

South Australian wine from Calabria Family Wines

For the mum who loves wine, a South Australian wine is the perfect gift. Everyone knows SA has some of the most amazing wine regions in the country and Calabria Family Wines is one not to miss.

This gorgeous family-owned winery hails from the famous Barossa Valley and their Belena range is perfectly suited to a Mother’s Day gifting. Featuring a healthy selection of white and red varietals, this range is both versatile and beautifully presented. Their bottles are just exquisite and look fabulous settled on a wine rack or bar cart. Plus, there’s an option online to personalise your very own Belena label. Take your pick between rose, prosecco, sangiovese and many more varietals – something for every taste.

A kaftan from Czarina Kaftans

Czarina Kaftans have some of the most beautiful pieces we have simply ever laid our eyes upon. This Australian designer brand flaunts a burst of colour and whimsical style, with gorgeous kaftans, dresses, playsuits and jumpsuits that are as bold as they are utterly ethereal. We have a few Czarina pieces ourselves and have gotten so much wear out of them, they’re our summer wardrobe staples for sure.

While it may not be summer in Australia right now, if your mum has a Euro summer trip coming up or just loves to build a lady-of-luxury wardrobe, then Czarina is a thoughtful and unforgettable Mother’s Day gift.

Vitale Elixir by Emma Lewisham

Most of us inherited our skincare routines from our mothers, so giving her something to add to the collection will certainly be a memorable gesture. The Supernatural Vitale Elixir by Emma Lewisham is a newly launched product that she most certainly won’t have tried yet, with the main benefit being it relaxes and reduces wrinkles.

Being a cosmeceutical-grad facial muscle relaxant, its almost like age reversal in a bottle. Its designed to use in both morning and evening, but because of the active ingredients, it is recommended to start small and build up the skin’s tolerance. Skincare-loving mums are bound to love trying something new and exciting in their routine.

Silk sleepwear from The Fable Archive

Sleepwear is definitely a safe gift of choice, but why not level it up with something luxurious and silky? At a higher price point, a silk PJ set from The Fable Archive is for the boujee mums, and the mums who love their self-care.

The range features a variety of other silk goodies if you think she’d love some everyday clothing, too. Simple tees and classic shirts are perfect for the working mum, styling effortlessly with any bottoms in their wardrobe. The Fable Archive is also an Aussie-owned small business, so it’s a lovely choice to support local business.

SPF BB Cream from MONAT

An easy-to-use, multi-purpose BB cream is bound to get everyday use, so its great if you’re wanting to gift your mum something practical. We’ve been loving the SPF BB Cream from MONAT lately. This BB Cream has a vast range of shades to choose from and features a high level of sun protection at SPF 40. The application is lovely and lightweight, lasting beautifully throughout the day.

New sunglasses from Oscar Wylee

For the fashionable mum, you can’t go wrong with new accessories to upgrade her wardrobe. A pair of fashion sunglasses will keep her feeling chic on those sunny days out. Oscar Wylee is one of our fave glasses brand for both prescription and non-prescription sunnies, and they have stores all across Australia as well as their online store.

Their current selection is stylish and versatile, whether your mum loves big, statement sunglasses or something more classic and timeless. Our favourite is the Tessa in a pretty tortoiseshell frame; it’s giving fashion-forward and fabulous.

Artisan coffee from Will & Co

We’ve been slightly obsessing over Will & Co coffee right now. We’ve been drinking their ground coffee range and the coffee taste is superior for homemade coffee, we’re not sure we can ever go back to the normal instant we were drinking before!

Another practical and safe gift option, if you know your mum’s a coffee mum, she will love an artisan coffee gift. Whether she uses ground coffee, pods or beans, Will & Co have a large range to choose from. They’re locally grown in Bondi, Sydney, making it even more special if she loves her local artisan goods.
