Christmas gift ideas for mum

I have a mother. I also have a Grandmother. She’s 94. I also have a mother-in-law.

And my wife is the mother of my son!!!!


I’ve collated some gift ideas that some of The Hubby House’s supporters can offer. Whether you’re buying for your mother, grandmother, or the mother of your child – I’m pretty sure I’ve found something for everyone, and maybe even a few left-of-centre ideas as well.

Have a look through and see what you think. As always, some of these links will offer me a small kickback, and it’s always appreciated whenever you purchase something as it helps keep the site going.


flowersAn oldie, but a goodie.

Pick a single rose, or a bouquet of lilies. Whatever her heart desires. The perfect gift for your mum, or the mum of your child. Everyone loves getting flowers, even me.

You can get some fabulous bouquets from Interflora who deliver, quite literally, everywhere.

A Donation

donationLet’s face it, we’re better off financially and emotionally than almost everyone else on the planet.

Personally, I think Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) do a fantastic job and deserve everyone’s support. I reckon your special lady would be pretty impressed if your gift to her was a donation to MSF.

An inspired gift from Unicef

unicefAn exceptionally worthy cause is Unicef. With Unicef, you can give an inspired gift that saves lives.

What does that mean? Inspired Gifts are real, life-saving gifts delivered to where they are most needed. Some examples include 150 measles vaccines for $74, 50 exercise books for $27, 50 HIV test kits for $80 or 200 Polio vaccines for $51.

Many of us would spend more than this on a night out.

When you buy an Inspired Gift for friends or family, it’s immediately dispatched to reach a child who needs it now.

When you purchase your Unicef gift, you can have a card emailed or posted to the special person in your life to whom you are purchasing for.


Collaboration-Case-8.0-Hey-GentsWhy not surprise mum with a Collaboration Half Dozen from Vinomofo?

Really, any of the Vinomofo range would serve you well, whether the gift is for your mum, your partner, or even yourself!

A book

booksYou’re never alone when you have a good book.  I have no idea who said that, but they’re right.

Booktopia have taken much of the hassle away and have put together a fantastic Christmas Gift Guide.

No matter what your special lady is into, there’s going to be a book about it.

Find some great books for mum at Booktopia , Dymocks Angus & Robertson or The Book Depository.

A surprise trip away

holidayI really think this is the best idea- but also probably one of the more expensive ones, depending on what you want to do.

There are so many options here. You could surprise her with a night out at a fancy hotel.

You can book a surprisingly inexpensive weekend away when booking through Expedia, TripAdvisor or Agoda.

For those of us in the southern states who are getting pumped for the oncoming summer, why not look at a weekend away to Hamilton Island? They offer some fabulous romantic escape special deals as well as great last minute deals.

Don’t forget you can also earn Velocity points when you book direct at Hamilton Island.

Start planning your next big trip

new-yorkA great gift idea is to start planning your next trip. Have you been talking about going to New York, Hawaii, or Phuket?

Do some research on SkyScanner and Trip Advisor.

For the gift, grab a guidebook or two from Lonely Planet.

Music and/or DVD’s

star warsStar Wars? Or maybe Michael Bolton? Either way – has you covered.

Band Merchandise

BSP67260Sure – this one’s a little left of centre, but a great gift in my mind. I know my wife would love anything from Madonna or Bruce Springsteen.

LiveNation Merchandise has merchandise for every artist you can imagine, from Nickelback to The Sex Pistols.


balloonGet some adventure inta ya!

Book your Mum, Grandma or partner an awesome adventure through Viator!

Hot air ballooning. White water rafting. Hiking. Walking. Sleeping.

Get on it.

The Zoo!

taronga-zooIn Sydney or Dubbo?

How about a day at the zoo

Ugg Boots

UGG BootsOk Sure, so this one might seem a little odd.

My wife actually yelled it out as I was brainstorming this article.  And she’s right.  I mean seriously- who doesn’t love a pair of Uggs? It really is the ultimate gift.

I’ve just spent the last half hour or so trawling their website– I had no idea that Ugg made things other than crazy fluffy boots. Get in there and have a look – there really is something for everyone.

I hope some of these have sparked some interest. What do you think? Feel free to let me know in the comments.

To all the mums out there- you’re absolutely amazing.
