Mother’s Day gift ideas – creative ways to spoil Mum this year

Mother’s Day is rolling around fast, which means it’s time to get your thinking cap on and come up with some great gift ideas to spoil Mum rotten with this year.

But rather than doing the usual bunch of flowers and some hand cream, why not treat Mum to something she really wants?

Material gifts are all well and good, but to really take things up a notch, spend some quality time together indulging in one of these creative gift ideas that will create memories worth cherishing for a lifetime.

Who knows? You might enjoy yourself too!

Race cars at Fastrack V8

Looking for the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime Mother’s Day experience? Nothing comes close to getting down to your local Fastrack V8 raceway and jumping in a purpose built race car to test out one of Australia’s favourite race tracks. 

The perfect gift for awesome mums who dare to be different, she’ll never forget the exhilaration of ripping hot laps in the passenger seat of a professional V8 car or even jumping behind the wheel of a powerful V8 Holden or Ford to test out her precision driving skills at full speed. It’s not just ‘rev heads’ that love Fastrack V8, it’s the ultimate Mother’s Day gift for any mum who doesn’t mind a bit of adrenaline.

Who knows? You might just enjoy yourself too.


Cooking class

Does Mum fancy herself as a bit of Nigella? Help her finesse her skills and have some fun by signing her up for a professional cooking class. There are plenty of schools and chefs across the country that cater for one off Mother’s Day classes, meaning that no matter what cuisine she’s into, you’re sure to find something she’ll like. 

Not sure what to book? Desserts are always a winner! If you’re in Sydney try Vive Cooking School’s French Desserts masterclass. Not only will you get to enjoy some quality time together in the kitchen, you’ll have some sweet treats you can take home for later. 

History tour

There’s no better way to explore a town or city than to get out and join a history tour! It doesn’t matter if Mum is on holiday somewhere new or just wanting to gain a different perspective on her local area, a history tour is certain to get her up, excited and enjoying the sights. Want to take your history walk to the next level? A true crime tour will be sure to get the heart racing.


Go to a concert

Mum deserves to let her hair down this Mother’s Day, so grab a couple of tickets to a local gig or concert and you can rock out together all night. Is there an oldie-but-a-goodie arena spectacular she’s been dying to see? Or would a local cover band be enough to get her up and dancing? Either way going to a concert together will definitely be high on the list of Mother’s Days to remember.

Cocktail making class

Who doesn’t love sipping on a great cocktail? Gifting mum a cocktail making masterclass for Mother’s Day means that she’ll be able to show off her skills and make her own for years to come. These classes are packed full of fun and laughter and on top of being able to drink your own creations, they often come with a glass of bubbles and nibbles on arrival.


Hot air balloon ride

Imagine starting off Mother’s Day peacefully drifting over beautiful scenery and sipping champagne as the sun comes up over the horizon? Sounds like magic doesn’t it? Hot air ballooning is certainly one for the bucket list and with tours operating all over the country, you’re sure to find an unforgettable flight your mum will just love. 


Paint and sip classes

Help mum unleash her inner Picasso by spoiling her with the ultimate creative gift – a paint and sip class! These classes don’t require any previous skill or experience and are completely guided by a leading artist who will teach you the tips and tricks to create your very own masterpiece. Materials, aprons, snacks and wine are usually included, so all you have to do is show up and get arty!


Karaoke night

Give mum full reign on the microphone as she belts out her favourite power ballad at your local karaoke night! There’s so much fun to be had in lining up your favourite tunes and going one-for-one as you battle it out for the glory of being the best singer in the family. Start the night by hitting up some cocktail bars together for some much needed dutch courage.


Go hiking

If you’re looking for a great way to get out and enjoy Mother’s Day without spending a heap of cash or getting caught in the hustle and bustle, a day spent hiking in the great outdoors might be the perfect experience. Pack up a picnic, jump in the car and hit the great open road – Australia is full of stunning National Parks that are just waiting for you to explore.


Volunteer for a day

Sometimes the greatest gift you can give is volunteering your time to help a cause that you care about. Is your mum an animal lover? Why not volunteer together at a wildlife sanctuary. There are lots of great volunteering opportunities out there to suit a variety of causes and interests, so have a look online and find something you think your mum would like to get behind. Your good karma points will skyrocket!

Mountain biking tour

Does your mum have an adventurous streak that loves to get out and about and have some fun? Then consider gifting her with a Mother’s Day mountain biking tour. Not only will you get the blood pumping with some exercise and fresh air, mountain biking tours are a great way to explore the beauty of the Australian wilderness. You don’t have to be a pro to give it a go either. Most tour groups cater for all skill levels and will provide bikes and safety gear.
