Gifts To Pamper Mum

Our mums do so much hard work, so return the favour with some pampering this Mother's Day. A massage, breakfast in bed and a mani-pedi will make mum's day - here are some other gifts for Mother's Day you can use to help her relax.

Mother's Day bathrobe

Whether she's stepping out of the shower or rolling out of bed, a bathrobe is the perfect way for mum to stay warm and comfortable on any day of the week. You can find a few different types of bathrobes at Spotlight - robes made of polyester feel soft and smooth when worn, while cotton bathrobes and light and will absorb water from the skin.

Our bathrobes are one size fits all and come in a range of pretty colours like pink, blue and white, so it's easy to find the perfect bathrobe for your mum. Pair them with a new set of fluffy slippers for mum and she'll have the ideal lounging outfit to relax in all day!

Mother's Day scented candles

Lighting a scented candle can help turn a space from your everyday loungeroom into a dreamy day spa - perfect for spoiling mum! Candles add more to a space than a diffuser, as their flickering light adds warmth and comfort to any space - add in a heavenly scent and you've set the perfect mood for Mother's Day.

At Spotlight we've got an amazing range of scents for you to choose from in our beautiful candles. Mothers who love florals will enjoy our lavender, gardenia, frangipani, jasmine and rose candles - bring in some fresh flowers from your garden to create a colourful floral paradise that will delight your mum.

If it's bright and zesty smells your mum loves, check out our candles with orange, berry, mango, papaya, lemongrass, ginger and apple. These aromas will energise and delight the whole family, and are a great choice for mums who want to spend their Mother's Day having fun.

For sweeter and heavier scents, look for our coconut, vanilla, sandalwood, pumpkin, cinnamon, pine and caramel candles. These heady candles are wonderful for creating a relaxing atmosphere and will turn your home into a rich and relaxing space.

Mother's Day tea set

Going out for high tea can be pricey, so why not try hosting your own high tea at home? Spotlight has a beautiful range of teapots, mugs and matching cup and saucer sets that you can use for your favourite drinks and snacks. Pick your favourite tea leaves for the teapot, although we recommend French Earl Grey or an Assam tea blend to stay on theme. Then you can create some special Mother's Day cupcakes or colourful sugar cookies to serve on a fancy, tiered cake stand - you could even bake an entire Mother's Day themed cake!

If your mum is a brekkie lover, use your tea set to serve her breakfast in bed. Use your nicest serving tray to bring in your feast, and don't forget to fancy up the occasion with some lovely cutlery, plates and bowls. Rich bacon and eggs, fluffy pancakes, a tasty omelette or a layered muesli bowl are all beautiful ideas that will not only tickle mum's taste buds but look stunning when presented.

Mother's Day cosy throw or blanket

Sometimes mum just wants to curl up on the couch with a book and a glass of her favourite drink - make it a cosy affair with any of our beautiful throws or blankets! Our collection of blankets and throws has something for every mum - soft and fluffy polyester blankets that will keep her toasty all day, light cotton throws that can be worn like a shawl around the house and stylish linen throws that can be thrown over the back of the couch to act as decor when not in use.

Look for special features like a waffle texture, tassels, faux fur or tufts to suit your home's style, and grab a couple of matching filled cushions to finish off your mum's cosy nest on the couch or bed.

Many kits also come with brushes, sketch pencils and either paper or canvas, so your mum will have everything she needs to start painting right away!

You can also treat mum with some singular art paints to top up her supplies or get her some quality brushes, special-effect mediums or vivid inks to help her create even more amazing art projects.

Gifts To Spoil Mum With In The Bedroom

Your mum's bedroom is a place that needs to be restful, and you can help make it into an even more beautiful and relaxing space by spoiling mum with some bed accessories and other stylish Mother's Day gifts this year.

Mother's Day heated blanket

Whether it's in bed or on the couch, a heated blanket or throw can make mum feel delightfully toasty even on the coldest winter day. You can choose an electric blanket that slips comfortably under the sheets and will keep mum warm on the chilliest of nights - many come with auto shut-off features that will prevent the blanket from staying on for too long.

Or, if mum wants a little extra warmth during the day, use an electric throw for cuddling on the couch. With a similar auto shut-off function, it will keep mum warm while she reads, watches a movie or knits in her favourite armchair.

Choose from wool, polyester and bamboo blended materials to suit your mum's preferences. Wool will keep her toasty warm even without power, while polyester is easy to wash and super soft. And of course, our electric throws come in a range of colours to suit your lounge room too!

Mother's Day coverlet set

Widespread but light, a coverlet set is a quick and easy way to dress up your mum's bed and even change the whole look of her bedroom. Coverlets cover your whole bed, and sets will come with matching pillowcases. Unlike quilts they don't offer a whole lot of warmth and comfort - rather they add to the aesthetic of the bed while also providing light cover that is perfect for warmer nights.

You can also choose from our comforter and bedspread range for different materials and lengths to suit your mum's sleeping style.

Mother's Day quilt set

If your mum loves snuggling up at night under a fluffy quilt, then she'll love a fresh new quilt set from Spotlight! Our quilt cover sets often come with matching pillowcases too, so you can restyle mum's whole bed with one purchase.

The material and thread count of a quilt cover can affect how warm or cool it feels during sleep. Higher thread counts mean a thicker blanket, so if mum is a cold sleeper look for a cotton, polyester or velvet quilt cover with a thread count over 200. Or if mum is a warm sleeper look for a lower thread count and quilt material like cotton, linen or bamboo.

Mother's Day eye mask

Sleeping in an eye mask will not only make your mum feel like she's in an old Hollywood glamour movie, but can also lead to several sleep and health benefits as well! At Spotlight you'll find silk sleeping masks in a lovely range of colours, and these masks can help your mum sleep both at home and in other places, like on an aeroplane or when she's away on holidays. By blocking out light, eye masks help minimise distractions that can wake you up, and will help mum sleep better no matter where she is.

Silk sleep masks can also help keep the skin around mum's eyes protected overnight, helping prevent puffy under-eyes and stretched skin in the morning. The cool feel of silk is also especially comforting to hot sleepers, who will find the cool touch of the eye mask very soothing on a hot night.
