Last chance for Mother’s Day deals

If you’re anything like me, you won’t have organised a Mother’s Day present yet. Present shopping for my dear departed Mum was always a last-minute affair for me. Of course, this was not just a Mother’s Day thing for me, it was birthdays, Christmas – basically, any special occasion.

The fact of the matter is, I’m a present-purchasing procrastinator. It’s an annoying trait, but I know I’m not the only one who shares this idiosyncrasy. The good news is, it’s easier than ever to find last-minute gifts these days, thanks largely to the internet. With that in mind, here are a few that might just fit the bill for the mum or mums in your world.


Is the mum in your life the outdoorsy or camping type? If so, you may have thought about Kathmandu as a Mother’s Day present option. And it is indeed a good option, but that also holds true even if she’s not much of an outdoors adventurer. Kathmandu has a range of goods and clothes suitable for everyday life, and a bunch of these have been marked down for Mother’s Day.

Camping or no camping, most of Australia is heading for cooler weather. Mum can keep warm with a Winterburn Women’s 600 Longline Down Coat. With a choice of six colours, this stylish and practical coat has been marked down from $599.98 to just $399.98. That’s a huge $200 off. 

Alternatively, how about a Ridge 100 Women’s PrimaLoft Bio jacket ($139.98) or pullover ($99.98)? Or why not both? Take advantage of Kathmandu’s ‘Select Fleece 2 for $150’ offer. This offer includes men’s fleece tops, too, so you can even make Mother’s Day a ‘his and hers’ affair. 

Kathmandu’s Mother’s Day deals also include joggers and a range of footwear, so you can sort Mum out from head to toe this year.

The Good Guys

On the other hand, perhaps the mum in your life is much happier indoors having fun with the latest available gadget or appliance. The Good Guys have a great range of Mother’s Day offers on kitchen appliances (not that we’re saying mums belong in the kitchen – we’re not stereotyping here), including The Barista Pro Coffee Machine from Breville at $899, with a matching ‘Soft Top Luxe Kettle’ at $199.

Or how about a Ninja Foodi Max XXXL Dual Zone 9.5L air fryer for $299, or the Sunbeam 5.5L slow cooker at just $49? 

Beyond the kitchen (we told you, don’t stereotype) there’s a range of personal care items Mum might like. For instance, the Homedics Shiatsu Bliss Foot Spa With Heat Boost at $149 or the Shark Smooth Style White hair styler heated comb for $119.

And that’s just the beginning. Check out the full range of Good Guys Mother’s Day offers here. The Good Guys also have you sorted for payment, with instalment options available through AfterPay, Zip and PayPal. 

Feel Better Box

Sometimes it’s best not to overcomplicate things when it comes to gifts. If that’s your Mother’s Day approach, a Feel Better Box might be just the thing for you. An Australian-based initiative, Feel Better Box has a great selection of beautifully packaged gifts, including the Mother’s Day Pamper Hamper.

This delightfully presented package includes Joode Pink Raindrop Socks, Beau Bright Calm Bath Soak, a Robert Gordon ‘Pebble My Mug’ and a Mini Dried Flowers Posy. It’s a beautiful gift, available for $85.

As beautiful as it is, the Pamper Hamper is just one of many Feel Better Box Mother’s Day gifts. Check out the full selection here

Whatever you’re doing this Mother’s Day, may it be an enjoyable and restful one for you and the mums in your life.
