Mother’s day calls for an opportunity to spoil the queen of our lives – our moms. Although celebrating it once a year does not do any justice to honor them, you can still change the game by making it memorable for her for an entire year. 

You can carve out all your feelings and emotions for her in creative ways to truly show her how much she means to you. Planning, preparing, and executing can often take out the fun for you – but that’s why we are here! We want to ensure that you are enjoying this experience too. Here’s a list of creative and exciting ways to celebrate Mother’s Day the right way, for you and her!

  • Experience Gifts

So, why experience gifts? Doesn’t the name suggest it already? They are called experience gifts for a reason. Name one gift that you cannot lose, get rid of, or wear off over time – it is an experience gift. 

Let’s simplify it for you. An experience gift is a gift that you give someone to have an experience or an adventure. It’s more like an activity gift. A new way to turn away from material gifts and focus on making memories. The person who receives it will definitely cherish it for the rest of their lives. Plus, it’s trendy. 

Let’s scroll through a few experience-based Mother’s day gifts that will take your relationship with your mom to the next level. 

  • Getaway

Planning an impromptu getaway is definitely at the top of our list! We all know how much fun this can be for everyone involved. Why don’t you have a bit of fun with it and tag along? 

The plus point is you don’t even have to go far off in search of a beautiful destination such as exotic beaches, wine valleys, or small towns – the perks of living in Australia. Won’t your mom just be over the moon when you surprise her with an impromptu getaway?

  • Picnic

Girls of all ages love a picnic set-up. Picnics have become super trendy to celebrate occasions such as this. If you want to show off your creative side – this is probably the best way to do so. 

For DIY lovers, you can start from scratch. All you need to do is gather basic picnic supplies such as a table set-up, tableware, cutleries, and some basic food items. You could also color coordinate everything to make it look pretty – like a theme-based setup. You have many options when it comes to choosing the picnic set-up to prepare the spread of food items. 

There are many event companies who can assist you in organizing this as well. But, if you are up for some fun and are keen on getting out the creative bug in you, you might as well do so. Plus, we truly believe that no one knows her better than you. Picnics definitely suit the intimate occasion of Mother’s Day.

Don’t forget to choose a breathtaking spot for the picnic. Australia is full of hidden gems so, take her to one that’s convenient for both of you.

  • Family Event

After all, Mother’s Day is a family affair. Get in touch with all your close Fnfs to show up for your Mom. Why don’t you co-host a Mother’s Day party for all the moms around you? 

For example, invite Grandma, mother-in-law, aunts, cousins, and friends who are moms. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mother’s Day with all the people who matter to you and your mom. 

What about a garden party? Not a bad idea, we suppose! Get others to help out with food and other essentials. The best part of throwing a party is organizing it, so don’t forget to have heaps of fun while planning it too.

  • Concerts/Live Shows

This requires some pre-planning. Try to find out if there is a Broadway show or a theatre you can take your mom to. Don’t limit yourself to your Australian neighborhood, even if it requires a few hours of driving, make that effort. She will surely feel pampered and acknowledge it. \

We know how hard it can be to be in the right place with the right people. So make bookings tickets for a special show or concert that you know your mom will enjoy. Don’t forget to treat her to dinner afterward. 

  • Travel

The ultimate way to treat your Mother is to ask her to be your travel partner. Wait for her reaction – you’ll know you made the right choice. She may have been waiting to visit or explore a certain place or country for a while now. Make it happen for her. 

Given that Australia had a lot of restrictions for the longest time during the pandemic, it is probably the ideal way to catch up on all the missed opportunities. 

Yes, travelling includes tickets, hotel costs, making it an expensive gift, but it’s your Mom. She deserves it, and you do too! Nothing more exciting than packing your bags to leave for an unknown destination. Catch a flight or plan a road trip across Australia. She’ll be thrilled to make new memories with you.  

  • Traditional Gifts

If you want to stick to traditional ways to wow your mom, we have a great list of ideas for you to choose from. Keep exploring some of the old and simple ways to celebrate her this year.

  • Jewelry

A classy yet traditional way to impress her. Jewelry fits every occasion. You could get her a watch, a bracelet, or earrings. Take her with you if you want to make the most of it. 

There are many offers during Mother’s day at jewelry stores, so look for those awesome deals to save some money. Wrap it in a pretty box with a bow and a cute little note. And the award for the best Mother’s Day gift will go to you!

  • Date

Take her out on a date. Isn’t it a cute and intimate way to spend one-on-one time with each other? Mothers love conversations above all. Plus, she will feel wanted and important by this gesture. So, book a table for two at a fine-dining restaurant. 

Ask her to dress up and you do too. If you are not worried about your budget, try getting a table at a hatted restaurant – all that Australia is famous for! Conversations, laughs, reliving memories over a 5-course meal will turn into a forever memorable evening.

  • Clothes

Take her shopping. Get her to try on some winter jackets or shawls, as it will probably make sense for you to buy her winter clothes if you are in Australia during Mother’s day. 

Pair it with a nice handbag, if your budget allows you. Or maybe buy matching outfits to make it about the two of you. What a wonderful way to bond with mom!

  • Flowers

Lilies, roses, tulips, orchids – just name it! A bouquet is bound to please her, and you know it. You could source her favorite flowers if you want to make that extra effort – which you totally should. 

If you want to make it a fun-filled experience, you could also take her to a farmer’s market to get her organic food items too. Surprise her with flowers right then and there. It will make her day. 


No matter how close, far, or busy you are – this Mother’s Day, don’t let your life turn down this occasion. Moreover, although we never have the time, we have to make the time. If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is definitely the importance of family, health, and time. 

Enjoy the little things such as Mother’s Day. We really hope that you have found your favorite one from the list we have prepared for you. Mothers have always made our lives easier in every possible way, from childhood to adulthood, and it’s your time to return the respect and gratitude towards them.
