Gifts for Mum on the go, go, go!
We love this Contigo Personalised drink bottle from Name My Stuff. Perfect for the pram cup holder, in a handbag and for those long, hot sessions pushing a swing at the park, you will be impressed by the quality and chuffed that it’s got your own name on it. It’s guaranteed to be leak proof, dishwasher-friendly, BPA free and at 750mls it’s the perfect size for taking out and about. Being a mum is thirsty work, this is a great value at only $22.95. Heck, the kids will want them too, check out the value packs and buy one for the whole family. Carrying a Mount Franklin bottle is so 2012! Eco-friendly, cost-effective and personalised is where it’s at this April!
We love a stylish, practical and comfortable sling at BH&T and the Hug-A-Bub Organic Pocket Wrap Carrier from Baby Carriers Australia is this month’s stand out. It looks amazing, you and your baby will love the bonding, it’s made of safe certified organic cotton and its machine washable. Multi award-winning, ensuring orthopedically correct positioning and supportive to bub from head to toe it let’s you be hands free to get on with your day. It even has its own self-pocket so you can pop in it your handbag. Seriously, stop us now as we could keep raving about this product. The hardest decision will be which colour to choose. Your mothers group will all want one too… must have.
Blue suede shoes!
Comfortable winter shoes need not be sneakers – these soft, suede boots from Hush Puppies will be your go-to wardrobe choice for cooler months. They are practical for the park, versatile from jeans to a dress with tights and cool enough to give you street cred with your childless friends. Subtle western detailing and a wood-stack heel mean these boots are made for walking and looking good. Even better they are treated for stain and water resistance so they will look as good at winter’s end as the day you buy them. Gifts for mum that she actually wants and needs… oh yes! Yelena by Hush Puppies is available at the Bstore for $149.
A pop of fun colour, with a gorgeous, on-trend nappy bag!
Forget lugging around that basic black bag of all your baby gear. Nappy bags are as much a fashion statement as you want them to be! We adore this red one from Lubelle, it’s a splurge at $239 but with genuine leather, functional meets stylish design, high-quality construction and that show-stopping colour we think it’s an investment piece you’ll love to carry for many years to come.
Escape with a fab new release book…
One Summer in Venice is our favourite gift for a mum who needs to put her feet up. Written by Nicky Pellagrino, former editor of New Zealand Women’s Weekly, it’s the rich story of one women’s quest for happiness set against a trip to Venice. You’ll love the escapism of this gorgeous tale that will strike a chord with mothers, wives and employees who find themselves questioning what exactly will make them happy? With love, family, food and travel themes this is a great read published by Hachette Australia. $29.99 at all major retailers.
Look no further than Tootzy Flootz for a personalised jumpsuit for Mother’s Day. Yes it’s a gift for a bub but it’s a gift for a mum who loves to look at her cutie!
No, this isn’t a minimalist version of a onesie for Mummy to lounge around the house on a hot day. They are made for baby to squeal Mother’s Day cuteness, with adorable messages from the little ones. Click here to find the message that will get a wink from Dad (and if you are really lucky, a loving slap on the bum).
Jack and the bean stalk is so last season. Take fairy tales to the next level with this unique gift that sees a bean grow with an engraved message to Mum. These gifts for mum are ideal for posting long distances, for mums who love to garden or just for a mum who loves a cool idea.
This year Bean Me Up have introduced a special tin for Grandma’s. Add an optional gift card and bag for only $1!
Mum, take these beans and plant them, with sentiments so true. Loving, beautiful and inspiring. Just like my love, they’ll grow for you.
Purely Wall Clocks
Homewares always make lovely gifts for mums. We just fell in love with this elegant clock and had to share! This beautifully crafted Artemis wall clock, from Purely Wall Clocks, features a brushed copper finish which is proving very popular at the moment within interior design. The warm tones, contemporary clock face and precise timekeeping will help your Mum stay in vogue and on time.
Bask Picnic Rugs
Help Mum escape to nature, or even to the backyard, this Mother’s Day.
Spoil her with a premium Bask picnic rug. Bask’s vibrant new range features 5 stylish designs each named after inspiring holiday locations around Australia. We’re loving the Byron design! Their solid construction from waterproof materials means that these picnic blankets can used on a wide range of surfaces, and spills or messes can be easily hosed off after use. Unique to the design of these picnic rugs is the concealed pocket which provides a zipped storage area for valuables or keys. The perfect gift for Mums who love the outdoors!
Spoil mum and your home with this beautiful Aromabloom diffusers. With free shipping and a free Breathe essential oil if you mention BabyHintsandTips, it will help keep the house smelling wonderful while helping ease coughs and colds this winter too.

Made from bamboo, the fabric is soft, allows for discreet on the go feeding and gives that pop of colour to cold dreary days. Shop at www.nursingmama.com.au with code BabyHintsandTips for $10 off.
Or get mum a bike…
Mum will be carving up the payment on her new bike while loving the fresh air and exercise. So often, gifts for mum don’t actually meet her needs. Mum doesn’t need another perfumed soap, she needs to feel the wind in her hair… or to hit the beach for a relaxing, healthy morning out. Gifts for mum can be “out of the box” and a bike gives her all the freedom and fresh air she’s missing – after all babies do tend to keep you locked in the twilight zone!
