Mother’s Day gift ideas that won’t break the bank

Last updated: 02 May 2019

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s time to settle on that perfect gift that your mum undoubtedly deserves. For this meaningful occasion, the Credit Savvy team has rounded up a list of gift ideas for mums that won’t break the bank.


# Intimate moments of mum and bub

Celebrating Mother’s Day as a new mum is a feeling every mum will never forget. While a carefully curated bouquet of flowers or a big box of chocolates is sweet and all, why not take it to the next level and get a gift that’s from your bub? Here are two ideas to get you started:

  • Photoshoot: This can either be a visit from a freelance photographer, so all of you can be in the comfort of your own home, or if you are handy with a camera yourself, you can capture some high-quality photos of mum and bub that she can cherish forever.
  • Twinning Customised Tees: No need to further elaborate, as we can all agree mums and bubs rocking the same outfits cannot get any cuter!


# Wake mum up to a breakfast in bed

To delight the superwoman in our family, why not treat her to an extra special morning and let her get the beauty sleep she deserves, while you and the kids work wonders in the kitchen. Imagine how delighted she will be waking up to the smells of a fresh pot of coffee and the sweetness of gingerbread french toast and cinnamon honey sauce. Get recipe ideas here.


# Spoil mum to a day of relaxation

Pamper your mum to a relaxing massage session and treat her to an afternoon tea at Vaucluse House Tearooms overlooking the charming and enchanting gardens of the Sydney’s few 19th-century mansions. Did we mention produce is locally-sourced from their own garden? We bet she’ll love it! Read the high tea menu here.


# Tech gadgets to make mum’s life easier

All mums have busy schedules and a normal day sometimes can turn chaotic, especially for working mums that need to juggle both. We’ve got some cool tech gadgets that can make her life easier!


Tile – If losing her keys, wallet or mobile has been a regular occurrence for your mum, then this little gadget is ideal. With the power of smart location, Tile’s devices, network and mobile app work together to help locate things. So, let her know she won’t need to worry when she accidentally misplaces things again!

Frank Green Smart Coffee Cup – If your mum is a coffee lover, then you should consider getting her this reusable smartcup which she can simply Visa payWave anything, anywhere under $50. Just wave or tap using the coffee cup to pay, so she won’t need to rummage around her bag to find her wallet!

Google Home – Google’s hands-free home assistance can make your mum’s life easier around the house. It allows the freedom to stream music, get updates on the traffic and her daily schedule, get nutritional information about home cooked meals, as well as alarms for the next client meeting and reminders about soccer practice pickup—all by voice command through Google Assistant.

If Google Home is a little bit out of your budget, consider the Google Mini instead, it’s smaller in size but built with the same Google Assistant functionality.


We hope the above ideas give you inspiration on what you can do for Mother’s Day this year!

The Credit Savvy team wishes a happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mums out there!
