A Fitness Watch With Style

Stumped for a Mother’s Day gift? She’ll love unwrapping a stylish fitness watch.

The Fitbit Sense 2 smart fitness watch would make an excellent gift for someone special. Mum can use it to track her steps and keep on top of her sleep score, heart rate and activity levels.

A DIY Crafts Machine

Thinking gifts for Mum that will keep on giving? She’ll use a Cricut machine for years to come.

Is your mum a serious craft nut? Gift her a nifty Cricut machine and you’ll be in her good graces forever. Cricut machines, like the Cricut Maker 3 or the Cricut Explore 3, are absolutely amazing. They connect to your phone or laptop via Bluetooth so you can design cool greeting cards, labels, stickers and wall decals using clever software. Then it’s just a question of sitting back and watching as the Cricut does all the hard work: cutting, engraving and embossing all sorts of materials from paper and fabric to leather and wood.

Her Own Laminator

Is your mum one of those super-organised people who loves a list or a spreadsheet? Then get her the Fellowes A3 Pixel Laminator so she can keep her important documents safe and protected with the click of a button. This model is compact yet can laminate items up to A3 in size. It also comes with 10 laminating pouches so she can get started right away.

A Pair of Wireless Earbuds

 If she loves music, consider wireless earbuds by Beats for her Mother’s Day gift.

Spoil your mama with some Beats Studio Buds, high-tech earbuds designed to deliver perfect sound. Sweat- and water-resistant, and with active noise-cancelling ability, they’re the perfect option for workouts. And, unlike many other earbud brands on the market, Beats come with three sizes of soft ear tips, so you’re guaranteed a stable and comfortable fit. They’re also easy to charge and can pair with most devices.

A Sleek Portable Speaker

By the pool, at the beach, in her office… Mum will love a portable bluetooth speaker.

Give your mum the gift of good tunes – or great podcasts – with this compact Our Pure Planet Bluetooth Speaker. A stylish and practical addition to any home, this gadget is also a greener choice, as it’s 100% carbon-neutral and made from bamboo and regenerated plastic. It comes with a two-year warranty and a Micro-A USB charging cable, and works both wired and wirelessly.

An eReader for All Her Books

Here’s an A+ present for any mum who’s in a book club: a Kindle. Not only can she adjust the brightness and text size to suit her ideal reading conditions, but the clever touchscreen display makes light work of translating words and looking up definitions. Plus, this device connects instantly to Amazon’s Kindle Store whenever Mum needs something new to read. The long-lasting battery boasts up to 10 weeks of use before you need to recharge, too.

A Cool Instant Camera

Fuji Instax cameras make excellent gifts. They’re perfect for capturing special moments with family and friends, and are really easy to use. Spoil your mum with a gorgeous Fuji Instax Square SQ1 Camera so she can snap high-quality, square-shaped prints at every party and family dinner. Instant photos are awesome for making scrapbooks and albums and creating clever wall displays.

A Handy Smart Speaker

Make her life easier with this Google Next Mini smart speaker.

Most mums could do with a personal assistant, and this Google Nest Mini Smart Speaker might just fit the bill. Its customisable voice commands will let your mum easily set alarms and schedule appointments while accessing the news, weather and her personal playlists. It’s also compatible with other smart objects in the home, so switching on lights, alarms and appliances is a breeze. You can wall-mount the Google Nest Mini or place it on a table, shelf or benchtop.

A Ring Light for Gorgeous Glow

Mums who spend a lot of time in virtual meetings might like a good ring light.

Does your mum snap a lot of selfies, post on social media on the reg or have lots of virtual meetings to attend? Then she won’t be able to live without this Kodak 10" ring light for creating studio-like conditions for her photography and video projects. Compatible with a huge range of smartphones, DSLR cameras and action cams, this accessory comes with a tripod, travel case and Bluetooth trigger for hands-free control. 

A Snazzy Tablet Device for Work and Play

The ultimate in Mother’s Day gifts? A Samsung Galaxy tablet that she can use for, well, anything!

It’s the ultimate Mother’s Day gift: a portable tablet device for playing games, watching Netflix in bed, and browsing online for recipes and new shoes. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is a fab option for Mum because it looks good and works hard. It boasts a 10.5-inch LCD display with 4GB RAM and a powerful, fast-charging battery.

A Handy Powerbank for Charging on the Go

The Comsol 5000mAh Single-Port Powerbank is small but mighty. Once stowed in her handbag, it means Mum will never have to worry about a flat phone battery ever again. It has a single port for connecting to her most important devices – including smartphones, tablets and wireless headphones – while the 5000mAh capacity should be enough juice to fully charge a phone once or twice.

A Camera for Capturing Every Moment

Movies or stills, the choice is hers when you add a GoPro Hero 9 to her Mother’s Day gifts.

Does your mum aspire to be the next Jane Campion? Show your support by gifting her the compact GoPro Hero9 action camera this Mother’s Day. This powerful device can shoot 5K video and snap high-quality stills in spite of its size. It’s also waterproof up to 10 metres, so it’s ideal for capturing footage at the beach or in the pool.
