From the heart: Our top 6 Mother’s Day gift ideas

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to honour the incredible women in our lives. This year, we’re here to help you avoid the last-minute bouquets and generic greeting cards. Because special women should receive special gifts. So dive into our best Mother’s Day gift picks. For any budget and any woman, you’ll be sure to find something meaningful.


Mother’s Day at THE LUME Melbourne

Looking for art, culture, connection and culinary delights to celebrate this Mother’s Day? THE LUME’s latest Festa Della Mamma program ticks all the boxes.

Alongside a standard THE LUME entry ticket, you can choose from a range of limited-edition upgrade options to treat Mum to.

If you want to celebrate in true Italian fashion, go for the Aperitivo upgrade and enjoy some spritz cocktails and an antipasto platter amongst Leonardo’s Last Supper.

Or, book an immersive yoga class to reset and rejuvenate together, surrounded by meditative, motion-designed landscapes.

No matter your mood or program choice, you’ll both come away from THE LUME enriched, revitalised – and connected.



A Céramiques class

For the crafty women out there or those who want to get their hands dirty and learn a new skill, Céramiques is the place to go.

They offer one-off, 2-hour intro sessions, led by experienced instructors that cover basic wheel throwing or hand building.

The best part? Céramiques takes care of the finishing touches. Your mum’s creations will be glazed and fired for her, ready to be proudly displayed on the mantle.

Conveniently located in Kew and Elsternwick, it’s the perfect place to indulge in a hands-on craft.



A luxe spa experience

Our definition of the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Something that she might not normally buy for herself but will adore. Something like a rejuvenating spa experience. (Which, of course, comes with time to herself – an often underrated gift for mums!)

She won’t have to go far, either, with these two local picks.

Whether you’re looking to gift her a massage, a facial or a holistic spa experience, these places have you covered for luxurious, relaxing treatments.

Skin Day Spa in St Kilda: Best for bespoke, medical-grade facials, LED light therapy and relaxation massages.

City Cave in Carnegie: Best for sensory deprivation floatation tank therapy, infrared saunas or remedial massages.



Make & Sip with Myer

For an artsy bonding experience, consider Myer’s Make & Sip event.

Running from 9–11 May at Myer Bourke St, Pinot & Picasso will guide you through a workshop to paint your own Maxwell & Williams wine glass, which will become a new keepsake of a fun memory together. With your ticket, you’ll also receive a $20 Maxwell & Williams voucher.

And when you’re all painted out, you get to follow it up with an indulgent high tea!

The menu has you covered on the sweet and the savoury, from chocolate fudge brownie bites to pumpkin, fetta and pine nut tartlets. And who could forget about the complimentary sparkling wine?

It’s a great way to add a unique touch to your Mother's Day celebration and create quality memories together.



A Kindle E-reader

If your mum’s idea of the perfect afternoon is getting lost in the pages of a good book, then a Kindle E-reader could be a game-changer.

It’s an incredibly convenient, portable and light way to help her get her reading fix. Anywhere, at any time. It’s super easy on the eyes since you can adjust the text sizes, and it’s backlit (so you can read even in the dark, without any harsh blue light).

We admit it’s an initial investment, with the cheapest one costing around $179. But the cost quickly offsets, especially if you link it to a library card or purchase a monthly Kindle Unlimited subscription (cheaper than the cost of a single book, and you can download as many as you want)!

Plus, can you really put a price on a mum’s happiness?



A ClassBento workshop

The best way to gift a story instead of stuff? A ClassBento workshop for two: you and mum.

ClassBento offers artisan classes and workshops right across Melbourne, and promises to ‘satisfy your creative cravings’.

Ring making. Tea blending. Cocktail making. Fluid art pouring. Perfume making. Vertical-succulent-garden creating. The options are truly limitless, and it couldn’t be easier to pick a workshop to suit your mum’s interests.

Creating memories, trying something new together and getting to take home a stunning creation? It’s a triple win!
