With Mother’s Day around the corner we’ve put together a few items that you could order today and receive tomorrow. They’ve been vetted and confirmed to be successful gifts for most budgets. Let’s get into it.
Baileys + Macaron
Light, fluffy and melt in your mouth ready, the Baileys MakMak macaron is the perfect gift to share with mum come Mother’s Day. With a Baileys infused liquid nougat ‘cloud’ centre, the exclusive Baileys macarons come in two colours: white with Madagascan vanilla ganache and brown with Belgian dark chocolate.
The limited edition macarons will be available at MakMak’s Newtown store and online from shop.makmak.com.au. The macarons are sold individually for $4 or in boxes of six for $23.
The perfect all-in-one
No purse, bag or jacket will be complete without the SwissCard Nailcare, which comes in three attractive colours (item numbers: 0.7240.T red transparent, 0.7240.T3 black translucent and 0.7240.T21 ice-blue translucent). As a portable beauty salon and handy toolkit, it helps make life that little bit easier. It includes a high-quality glass nail file, scissors, tweezers, pin and magnifying glass, as well as several screwdrivers and a ballpoint pen.
You’ll pick it up for $88.95 via www.victorinox.com
The Simple Wearable
Some wearables have tried to become the all dominant wrist accessory. The fact is that your mum likely has a lovely watch but would also like to know what her daily habits are like and how she is sleeping, simple stuff. The FitBit Alta HR is the best accessory for her wrist without replacing the lovely timepiece.
Fitbit Alta HR is the world’s slimmest wrist-based, continuous heart rate tracking device combining the benefits of heart rate technology, automatic exercise recognition, sleep tracking, battery life of up to seven days and smart notifications in a slim, versatile design that is easily customised to fit your style. We’ve seen the FitBit Alta HR for $179 in stores.
Printing your Moments
With so many moments in life captured on devices and shared across social media, the art of preserving images is sadly being lost. With the Canon SELPHY CP1200, it’s never been easier to display family memories, and bring them to life through print!
We know that mums are strapped for time, so thanks to Apple AirPrint and built-in Wi-Fi, the Canon Inkjet SELPHY app allows busy parents to print from iOS or Android devices in seconds. You can pick up this little photo printer for $159 at all the typical retail stores.
