Your mum has given you everything. From giving you the first breath, to helping with homework late at night. On May 14, say thank you with a gift on Mother’s Day. If you haven’t already, see my previous gift guide for the mum that loves a bit of pampering. For the mum that loves to cook or something a bit out of the ordinary check out the gift guide below!
If your mum is anything like mine, alcohol is out of the question. But for those special occasions when everyone seems to have a glass of champagne in their hand, fill mum’s glass with alcohol removed wine. Edenvale offers premium alternative to alcohol that will leave you feeling great after a day of celebration! With half the calories of normal wine, full on antioxidents and great premium taste everyone deserves to have a taste. These wines are available at all usual retailers. Try my favourite – Edenvale Sparkling Cuvee available at Coles, Dan Murphy’s, Woolworth’s and IGA.
Matcha tea is huge right now! It’s full of antioxidants including catechins, the most the most potent and beneficial type that have strong cancer fighting properties. The Matcha Tea House organic premium grade tea is my favourite. It’s packed with goodies and is also great for calm and meditation as a warm cuppa can get you in a zen state of mind. Matcha tea also improves your cognitive function, enhances memory and can even speed up your metabolism. Apart from all these great benefits, matcha tea also tastes great so buy your mum a great set to keep her calm, healthy and alert.

A goodie box
Is your mum especially difficult to buy for? If she’s the type that ‘has everything’, set her up a goodie box full of her favourite items! Buy her some delicious snacks, pamper products and her favourite movies. For a health conscious mum, stock up on some low calorie treats from the Atkins range. My favourites include the Caramel Fudge and Choc Coconut bars which can be easily purchased from the super market! Present the goodies in a beautifully decorated basket and put some love into it. She will love it! The Atkins range is available at all good supermarkets.
For the budding chef
Is your mum a genius in the kitchen? If she loves to spend her time baking and cooking then get her a state of the art gadget for the kitchen. Some ideas include nifty measuring spoons and cups, pots and pans and personalised mugs. Now for mums who love to bake, check out the awesome mega mixing bowls by Lakeland. If mum ever bakes double quantities or tiered celebration cakes, she’ll appreciate these super-size stainless steel, non-slip silicone base mixing bowls. Just the thing for batch bakers and busy kitchens, it has a pouring lip and internal measurements. Lakeland is available Australia wide on line only at The Good Guys.
The mum who loves to prep and chop
A paring knife is every chef’s go-to tool for precision jobs in the kitchen, and Victorinox Swiss Classic Paring Knife 8 cm is a knife drawer standout not only for its fresh colour palette but also for its sharp edge and pointed tip. Help your mum expertly remove pepper seeds, swiftly core an apple, slice a pile of vegetables into sticks or finely dice them into perfect little squares – whatever job you give it, the smooth, uniform cuts of this Paring Knife will result in dishes that are as beautiful as they are nutritious.
