With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to head into Alexandria Homemaker Centre and pick up a beautiful gift for the deserving woman in your life. Think outside the box of traditional gifts such as candles, slippers and pyjamas this year and treat Mum to something special and unexpected. Here at Alexandria Homemaker Centre, we have some amazing stores that we are sure you’ll find the perfect gift for your Mum this Mother’s Day. Below are some of our favourite ideas to inspire you this year!
Bring Warmth To Her Winter
Mother’s Day always falls around the time the weather starts to get cooler, and you can feel Winter is on it’s way. Ensure Mum is all set for a cosy and warm winter by gifting her some snuggly items for the home. I don’t think there is a Mother out there who doesn’t appreciate a good cushion, throw rug or soft furnishing item. Stores such as Simplife have an amazing array of cushions and throw rugs to add to the living room or bedroom. We recommend pairing a linen cushion with a patterned throw rug to create the perfect cosy gift for Mum this Mother’s Day. To go one step further you could opt for an electric fitted blanket or heated faux fur throw blanket from Bing Lee to ensure Mum stays warm and toasty this Winter!
If you really want to spoil Mum this Mother’s Day treat her to a beautiful new furniture item that will make a statement in her home. You could take her on a trip to Alexandria Homemaker Centre and have her pick out her favourite item within your budget or buy something prior that you know she will absolutely adore! A furniture item such as a cosy armchair for the bedroom, a beautiful console table for the entryway or a new coffee table for the living room would make her day. Stores such as James Lane offer a wide variety of furniture items at affordable prices in styles such as Modern, Scandinavian, Traditional or Hamptons. Or you could go all out and splurge on a beautiful item from Oak Furniture that you know she has been lusting after for months. Furniture may not be a traditional Mother’s Day gift, but we think our Mums deserve to be spoilt!
A Cosy Corner
Create an experience this Mother’s Day for the special lady in your life by buying her the gift of relaxation, cosiness and rest. Every living room or bedroom deserves a cosy corner with a comfy chair, reading lamp and soft throw blanket to allow you to unwind at the end of a busy day. We love the idea of gifting your Mum a gorgeous table lamp from Beacon Lighting paired with a couple of great new books and a super soft throw rug. No matter what design style her home is, Beacon Lighting is sure to have a lamp to suit her needs. From Scandinavian to Provincial to Modern or Glamorous, there is something for everyone. Inspire your Mum to take the time out to relax and unwind like she deserves with this cosy and unique gift idea.
For The Practical Mum
We all know and love ‘the practical Mum’. The one who is constantly writing to-do lists, uses her air fryer on a daily basis and heads to the gym without fail to ensure she stays fit, healthy and energetic. Stores such as Bing Lee and The Good Guys are perfect destinations to buy the best gift for the practical Mum this Mother’s Day. Bing Lee has a wide variety of Fitbit watches to cater to your Mum’s health goals and fitness needs. If she loves spending time in the kitchen, why not give the gift of a new blender, Nutri bullet or air fryer – we know she would love it! For the Mum interested in wellbeing we recommend gifting an air purifier or humidifier to help with air quality, toxins and the added benefits of healthy glowing skin. Lastly, we can’t go past Smeg’s range of beautiful pastel-coloured small appliances that look amazing displayed in every kitchen. We suggest treating Mum to a new kettle or toaster in her favourite Smeg shade to make her day!
No matter what gift you go for or what kind of Mum you have, the most important gift of all is quality time. Treat Mum to a day of shopping at Alexandria Homemaker Centre where you can browse the wide range of stores, grab a coffee and have fun being inspired and spending time together. Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mum’s out there! We hope you have an amazing day filled with love, happiness and joy. See you next time at the Alexandria Homemaker Centre!
