What to buy your mum (and you) for Mother’s Day

Accessories

We did some shopping for Baby Showers recently, but now Mother’s Day is only a week away… so you don’t have much time to place a gift order! Luckily you can go online shopping at any hour this weekend.

We thought it could be nice if you treated your mum to a new outfit for next Sunday, and while you’re at it, maybe something new for you too… because who doesn’t like to look smart for their mum?!

In fact, researching for this post got us thinking… do you dress differently when you spend time with your parents? Is there a little part of you that reverts back to your 10-year-old self, sub-consciously looking for approval? Are you more likely to wear a maxi rather than a mini, or does your style go with you no matter what?

Just in case, we’ve played it a little on the safe side, but saying that, you won’t find any grandma cardigans or orthotics in these shopping lists… How are you planning on spoiling your mum for Mother’s Day?

PS – Because we know time is of the essence, we’ve only included Australian online stores, or internationals with express shipping.

FOR YOU – LUNCH AT THE FOLKS’ PLACE

Nothing says lazing around at the parents house like a pair of boyfriend jeans and a comfy tee. Dress it up for Mum with some ankle boots and a bit of bling.

For a day at the beach treat your mum to a Mother’s Day gift that will keep giving for years to come – an original Camilla kaftan, every woman should own one!

FOR YOU – MOTHER’S DAY BEACH BBQ

If the sun is shining then a maxi dress is ‘beach barbie 101′, but add some spice with a cut out back and oversized carry-all.

FOR MUM – PICNIC IN THE PARK

Loose fitting pants will allow mum to move between picnic rug and park bench with ease, and a scarf is one of the most versatile gifts for this time of year.

FOR YOU – PICNIC IN THE PARK

Channel a little boho / safari style for your outdoor picnic, go with a warm palette and wear a longer silhouette for lazing in the long grass with the fam.

FOR MUM – OUT ON THE TOWN

If you’re taking Mum out for a long lunch then why not help her dress up for the occasion – a gather detail is flattering, as are Spanx support tights, and a sequin is just plain fun!

FOR YOU – OUT ON THE TOWN

We couldn’t decide which was on just one fancy restaurant dress, so we thought we’d let you decide – monochrome with a cut out back feature, or ladylike lace with metallic statement shoes?…

When was the last time you raided your Mum’s wardrobe?… it might be a bit more frequent now if you’re helping her shop!

And remember to let us know if you have an occasion (big or small) you need a new outfit for?
