If you’re looking for memorable things to do on Mother’s Day, add some colour to your celebration and book a Mother’s Day paint and sip experience at Paint Pinot. It’s wildly fun, your mum will love it, and you’ll score all the brownie points this year.

Why Unique Gifts Matter

No matter how old you are, your mum wants to spend quality time with you on Mother’s Day.

You could show up with flowers, chocolates, or a mass-produced, generically written card and eat dinner she’s prepared. Sound familiar? 

But this year, why not make her Mother’s Day colourful and fun and spend time doing something a little more creative with her?

Our Mother’s Day gift ideas below will allow your thoughtfulness to shine through as you spoil your mum and remind her of how special she is. You can choose an experience you know your mum will enjoy or do something cool and creative like Mother’s Day painting.

Your mum will love any unique Mother’s Day gift you’ve chosen so long as she’s with you on this special day (and she doesn’t have to tend to dying flowers, feel guilty eating all the chocolate, or cook dinner!).

Gift Idea #1: Personalised Jewellery

Replace the old macaroni necklace you made your mum in primary school with a personalised piece of jewellery she’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Rather than opting for a generic piece that says ‘mum’, personalise it to symbolise you, your mum, and your family.

Examples include:

  • A locket on a chain with your photos inside (add engraving to the locket to make it even more special)
  • A charm bracelet with symbols that represent you and your family members
  • An image of you both that is etched onto a medallion on a necklace
  • An engraved watch with a personalised note for your mum (a timeless choice)

You’ll find loads of places online that offer personalised jewellery options. 

Gift Idea #2: Spa Day at Home

Treat your mum to a day of pampering by creating a spa day at home. Set her up in a comfy chair (a recliner or a lounge chair in the garden), and give her a Mimosa, wine or cocktail of choice. Then, let the pampering begin.

Include items like:

  • A fluffy robe for lounging
  • Face mask (of your choice)
  • Foot soak
  • Hand cream and nail polish
  • Massage oil (in her favourite scent)

Don’t let her lift a finger while you treat her (and yourself) to pamper treatments. Add in a cheese board for an extra special treat.


Gift Idea #3: Paint and Sip Experience at Paint Pinot

For the ultimate fun experience guaranteed to make your mum’s day colourful, enjoy a Mother’s Day paint and sip experience at Paint Pinot.

Start with a blank canvas and a cheeky Pinot and watch your mum’s delight as she starts creating her masterpiece. Don’t worry if you’re not an ‘artist’ – you will be by the end of your experience (especially after a couple of drinks!).

Everything is included to make this Mother’s Day painting gift exceptional:

  • Quality paint and materials
  • Artists to guide you on your painting journey
  • Drinks to spoil your mum (cocktails, Pinot, bubbles or beer)
  • Delicious food (that your mum doesn’t need to cook!)
  • Loads of fun

Hint – book early to avoid missing out on Mother’s Day. Create a lasting memory she’ll remember every time she admires her artwork, at either our Braddon or Kingston location.

Gift Idea #4: Gourmet Cooking Class

If your mum’s a bit of a foodie who loves all the cooking shows on TV, then treat her to a gourmet cooking class.

You’ll find loads of gourmet cooking class experiences online at websites such as RedBalloon or local restaurants in your area.

For a fun thing to do on Mother’s Day, choose a gourmet cooking class like:

  • Thai or Asian Masterclass
  • Mediterranean (with wine!)
  • Patisserie or Biscuit Making
  • Fish and Seafood Meals
  • Fresh Pasta or Italian
  • Gluten-Free Baking
  • Chocolate Making

Let your mum’s inner MasterChef shine through by enjoying a gourmet cooking class with her this Mother’s Day.

Gift Idea #5: Custom Portrait or Painting

For a truly personalised and unique Mother’s Day gift, commission an artist to create a custom portrait or painting for your mum.

Unlike the old days, your mum won’t need to sit for hours while an artist meticulously paints her every detail. Modern artists can replicate photos to create a gorgeous masterpiece she can hang in her palace.

Be creative and curate a piece of artwork she’ll cherish:

  • Self-portrait of her
  • Family painting
  • The grandkids
  • Her beloved pet
  • Landscape scene from her favourite holiday photo
  • Favourite flowers or animal

Many online websites offer custom portraits and paintings, or you could ask your local art society to recommend a local artist to work with you.

A Mother’s Day painting gift shows your mum you’ve put a lot of thought into it, and she’ll think of you when she looks at her unique artwork.

How to Choose the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

You know your mum the best, so when searching for Mother’s Day gift ideas, you’re in the prime position to curate her perfect day.

To choose the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, start by considering her interests. Is she a foodie who loves to cook? Does she need some pampering? Will personalised jewellery make her smile (or cry!)? Does she love colourful artwork?

You could choose one gift or a combination to spoil her on Mother’s Day. For example, a morning pampering session followed by a Mother’s Day paint and sip experience in the afternoon!

Whatever you decide, remember that Mother’s Day gifts don’t need to blow your budget (and your mum wouldn’t want you to do that). Choose a gift within your price range, and if doing an experience with others, don’t be shy to ask them to contribute to cover the cost of your mum.

Make This Mother’s Day Unforgettable

Hopefully, you’re buzzing with ideas to make Mother’s Day unforgettable this year.

From pampering day spas at home, customising an elegant piece of jewellery, or indulging at a gourmet cooking class to brightening her day with a unique piece of artwork or a Mother’s Day paint and sip experience at Paint Pinot, you can’t go wrong. 

No matter your choice, a unique Mother’s Day gift will always be appreciated, and your mum is guaranteed to feel the love on her special day. Enjoy your quality time together and smile as you watch her relax, let loose and have fun!
