NOTE: Because of the overwhelming response to the giveaway, Millers has agreed to add another $50 voucher to the competition. There will be TWO winners for this giveaway. Yay!
Easter’s done and dusted and now it’s time to get ready for Mother’s Day. Presents don’t have to be super expensive. Mother’s Day isn’t about materialism, after all. It’s about showing our mums how special they are.
So here are some inexpensive ideas for Mother’s Day presents. You’d probably spend around $15 to $30 for these ideas.
Do all her chores and make the meals all day – Simple right? Mum might enjoy that breakfast in bed but it’s hard to ignore the mess in the kitchen. Mums tend to be like that, believe me. So help make sure she doesn’t have to think about chores or making meals that day.
Flowers and chocolates – You can never go wrong with beautiful flowers and some yummy sweets.
Vouchers galore – Vouchers are good but make sure you consider several things before you get them. When’s the expiration date? How far is it from your place? Will your mum have an easy time getting there? Get vouchers for something she really wants to do like mani/pedi, facial, hair cut, CD, and so on.
Clothes and accessories – Clothes and accessories for $30? It is possible. Australian fashion brand Millers has a good range of clothes, shoes, bags, scarves and more for under $30. Check out their website.
Books – If mum is an ebook reader, it’s good to get an ecard or voucher for her favourite online bookstore, such as Kobo, Kindle, or iBook. If mum loves the hard cover, why not take the extra time and go to a second hand book, find a nice hardbound copy of her favourite book? She’ll appreciate the extra effort.
Creative cutes – Is your mum into creative little things? There are heaps to choose from on eBay and Etsy that won’t cost as much, such as this camera lens travel mug for $15.
And now for the giveaway. One lucky reader will win any of the collection from the Miller’s product range worth $50, either for yourself or for your mother. All you have to do is answer this:
Why is your mum amazing? It’s hard to put a word limit on this so just don’t go over three paragraphs. Or at least try not to.
Australian residents only. Competition closes end of business day 27th April AEST.
