The gift of cafe-quality coffee, at home
Let mum release her inner barista at home so she doesn’t have to go far to get a cafe-quality cuppa. The Nespresso Creatista Plus comes in a stunning shiny stainless steel that will look like a work of art on her kitchen counter, plus the intuitive user interface makes it easy even for mums who aren’t so tech-savvy.
Where to get it: Nespresso, for $799.
Deliver fresh, restaurant-grade oysters to her door
You may not be able to take mum out for a fancy Mother’s Day meal this year, but that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy a restaurant-quality feed. East 33 is usually one of Australia’s biggest restaurant suppliers of premium rock oysters, but in light of recent events, they’ve launched a home delivery service just in time for Mother’s Day! You can even get next-day delivery to selected Sydney suburbs (except on Sundays, so maybe arrange this one as an early Mother’s Day treat).
Where to get it: East 33, from $59 including delivery.
A bread maker for fresh, healthy homemade loaves
Let’s be honest, everyone’s baking bread in iso – so let mum get in on the fun too! Breville’s Bread Baker has 12 programs from sweet to savoury, and a 15-hour delay setting so she can wake to the smell of freshly baked bread. The automatic dispenser feature is great for healthy mix-ins like seeds, grains, nuts and fruits, so her loaves can be packed with nutritious extras!
Where to get it: Bing Lee, for $159.
KitchenAid stand mixer to make her iso baking projects easier
On the theme of iso baking – why not splurge on mum and buy her a classic KitchenAid Stand Mixer to make all her cooking projects that much easier? She’ll be equipped with two high-quality mixing bowls, a dough hook, whisk, and beater to help her tackle pretty much any project.
Where to get it: The Good Guys, for $799.
An edible bouquet of healthy (and delicious) treats
We’re all stuffed full of chocolate post-Easter, so why not offer mum something a little healthier to indulge in for Mother’s Day? This edible bouquet features fresh strawberries and vegan bliss balls, along with complimentary gift wrapping and a personalised card – too easy.
Where to get it: Edible Blooms, for $79.
A slow cooker for delish dinners
Slow cookers make tasty meals so easy – especially for busy mums who want tasty food but don’t have the time to spend hours over the stove. Breville’s The Smart Temp has temperature sensors to prevent overheating, nifty pre-programmed settings and a dishwasher-safe cooking bowl that you can serve straight out of. It was voted the best slow cooker by Choice, which is convincing enough for us!
Where to get it: Breville, for $799.
Bestselling cookbooks for fresh inspiration
You can’t go wrong with a cookbook to inspire your foodie-loving mum in the kitchen – especially these highly-rated faves! It’s basically fact that every mum is a little in love with Jamie Oliver, and his cookbook Everyday Super Food is packed full of healthy and delicious recipes she’ll enjoy. Another top-rated collection comes in the form of The Beauty Chef: Delicious Food for Radiant Skin, Gut Health and Wellbeing, by Carla Oates, the brains behind skincare brand The Beauty Chef.
