Are you planning a special present for your mum this Mother’s Day, but not sure where to start? Or is there a special lady in your life you would like to extend your warm wishes to at this special time? We have rounded up some of our favourite gifts for the adventurous and outdoorsy mums, grandmas, sisters and friends across Australia who deserve to be treated this May.
One thing all great road-trip lovers need is a beautiful pair of cosy pyjamas. Ready to keep you warm through the night, or relax in, wine in hand during a winter evening, a good pair of pyjamas will always be well-loved.
This pair by Café Press caught our attention – complete with a cute vintage caravan and flamingo design. Pair with a set of fluffy slippers and she’ll be ready to roll.
Deck the van
Give your mum’s RV a lift with some beautiful new kitchenware. We love the range of unbreakable beverageware by Strahl which can be bought via Kitchen Warehouse here. From tumblers to wine glasses or champagne flutes, your mum can refresh her RV’s cupboards with a range of glassware which looks beautiful – yet is entirely unbreakable.
To pair with the range, why not throw in a beautiful bottle of wine – perhaps from Mitchelton, a winery in the Nagambie Lakes which produces award-winning wines. One of the most famous wines from the team includes the Blackwood Park Riesling, the perfect gift for any mum who loves fishing and is looking for a tipple to accompany the day’s wares.
For mums who love a cocktail, check out the Spritz range by Honeysuckle Distillery – a company which blends all natural, locally-sourced ingredients to offer ready-to-go Spritz cocktails in vibrant cans. We couldn’t choose our favourite flavour, so it would have to be a ten-can mixed pack for our mums!
The gift of time
Marco & Co candles, a Victorian based company, was founded with a desire to help people switch off, ground themselves and find a sense of inner peace. This is something all of us deserve to find, particularly the mums who have loved and cared for us for so many years.
Check out the range here. Our favourite is the new Royal Rose, which can also be purchased with a hand & body wash and body cream for the full experience. And, for those mums looking to kick start a mindfulness journey, consider adding in the leather-bound gratitude and reflection journal to get them started.
And finally, for those mums or friends who aren’t yet caravanners, why not get them a trip with Let’s Go? This company allows you the freedom of embarking on a trip anywhere in Australia – with pick-up and drop off points at numerous locations. This is the perfect way to get started on a caravan adventure whilst she’s still deciding if a caravan could be for her long-term. Check out the website for more details.
