Mother’s Day gift ideas for mums living the iso-life
By MyBudget Editor

Mother’s Day is coming up (Sunday 10 May 2020) and it looks like most of the country will still be in lockdown. With that in mind, here’s a list of crafty gift ideas that are designed to show Mum some lockdown love and help her pass a little ‘iso’ time.

Candle Making Kit

Light up your mum’s life (and night) with a beginner’s candle-making kit (from around $30.) Options include paraffin, soy, beeswax or gel bases, as well as various holders and scents.

Customised Cross-Stitch Pattern

Did you know that you can turn photos into free customised cross-stitch patterns? What a lovely idea for mums or grandmas who love sewing. Threads and fabric can be added to your gift by ordering online or picking up supplies from haberdashery and craft stores, such as Spotlight.

Watercolour Paint Set

Is your mum the artistic type? Is she ready to graduate from colour-by-numbers? ‘The Joy of Watercolor: 40 Happy Lessons for Painting the World Around You’ is a beautiful painting book for beginners (Amazon Australia $22.35) and watercolour paint sets start at around $30.

Photobook Gift Certificate

Is your mum a photo-file? A gift card for a photobook service could be the perfect way for her to get creative, while showcasing her camera-tastic talents. The consumer advocacy experts at Choice have the lowdown on the best photobook services in Australia to help you choose the right one.

Remember to shop soon!

Don’t be caught short — Australia Post and courier services are stretched thin keeping up with the increased volume of online shopping. Shop soon to receive online orders before Mother’s Day on 10 May!
