With so many holiday’s that creep up on us all year-round, we don't blame you for forgetting that Mother's Day is right around the corner. But not to worry! This last minute reminder is here to let you know that you can still show your mum just how much you care with thoughtful gift ideas you can give in an instant. 

With such high expectations to deliver the ‘perfect gift for mum’ year on year, it’s no wonder we give up and turn to the convenience of supermarket chocolates and their accompanying bouquets. But this year it's time to show Mum just how much we care so instead of rushing down to the store, let’s make some memories.

With Gifting Owl, you can find the perfect experience to bring the family together and celebrate all the hard work our Mums have done each year without fail. And the best part- you can select, purchase and deliver your gift in just minutes so no one will know your forgetful secret. 

We’ve compiled a list of 7 quick and easy gift ideas to help you pull at all of the right heart strings this Mother’s Day. 

Hot Air Ballooning 

Take your mum up, up and away with a hot air ballooning experience where she can enjoy spectacular views as she drifts higher up into the clouds. Nothing is more scenic than watching from above as the sun begins to rise, washing the land in a golden light. So organise a tasty breakfast hamper and lots of strong, hot coffee for an early morning take off to be the first ones to welcome in the new day. Hot air ballooning over the mountains is a magical way to start your Mum’s special day and create memories she will never forget.  

Cooking Class

We know our Mums love the gift of food from the way she lights up time after time over the expected box of chocolates on Mother’s Day. This year, it’s time to surprise her with a special twist on the tasty treats with a cooking class.  

Whether her cooking skills could earn a Michelin star or are just about non-existent, a personalised cooking class can deliver an exciting experience to all levels of home chef. With Gifting Owl’s range of options, you can gift her an authentic culinary class to experience new cultures, encourage her creative side with a cake decorating workshop or challenge her senses with a wine pairing course. Whatever she’d prefer, this quick and simple gift idea will make all of the difference this Mother’s Day. 


Mum’s are capable of far more than your favourite superhero. Not only can they be in four places at once, have super hearing and the ability to find just about anything- they do it all without the cape. It’s time we say thank you for being our guardian angels in the most superhuman way we know how... The gift of flight!

Whether your Mum is a thrill-seeker, an outdoor adventurer or someone who won't back down from a challenge, skydiving is the perfect gift to help her reach her full superhero potential. Not to mention, with Gifting Owl’s quick and easy booking process, this thoughtful last minute gift idea will show her all of the love and take none of the time.


The great outdoors is a chance to escape the hectic schedules of everyday life and reflect on what really matters in the world. Show your Mum what's important this Mother's Day with a family hiking tour to unplug and unwind together.  

Alternatively, we also know organising family outings can be the most stressful job of all so instead, book her in for the adventure of a lifetime with a guided trek. What could be more triumphant than journeying solo to conquer the mountains. With the chance to meet friends along the way and create adventurous memories, a hiking experience is the gift of a lifetime. 

High Tea

Don your grandest hats and treat Mum to the tiny delights of an elegant high tea. Whether she’d prefer a boutique experience with rustic scones and bottomless tea or the luxuries of an all-inclusive champagne package, the perfect afternoon treat is waiting to be found on Gifting Owl

It’s always Mum trying to wrangle the family together for a shared meal or weekend outing so turn the tables by booking the gang in for a high tea experience. The best part is, with no preparation or washing up to worry about, your gift will have all the thought and none of the stress - so get booking!

Spa Package 

It’s no surprise that it’s stressful being a Mum but it’s not often that the sacrifices and unconditional love get recognised. Even though you’re currently reading a list of ‘last-minute gift ideas’, we know you still care enough to make her feel special on this upcoming day so why not go all out? Help her take the load off with a specialty spa package to wash away all the stress and tension that comes with being a Mum.

Whether it's an hour of luxury or a weekend getaway, a spa package will send all the love and recognition back her way as she reaps the rewards that pampering is sure to offer.  

Winery Tour

If your Mum considers herself a ‘wine connoisseur’ or just enjoys sharing a bottle with friends, a winery tour is the perfect gift to help her celebrate this Mother’s Day. This gift is one to share together so make sure your book this as a date for two so Mum and whoever she chooses (hopefully you) can explore the beautiful vineyards and unwind over generous tastings of the local production. Mum’s are always looking out for us so make sure to look out for her on this special day and an escape to the vineyards will do just that!

Here at Gifting Owl we never want ‘I forgot’ to ever be an issue when it comes to spoiling loved ones on special occasions. Whether it’s slipped your mind or you’ve been stumped for ideas, we hope that these suggestions can help show your appreciation this Mother’s Day. 

With Gifting Owl, you can choose from over 12,000 gift ideas, select and deliver your gift in minutes and include a personalised note to really show how much you care.
