Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This Mother’s Day, let’s all take the time to celebrate the incredible women in our lives and show our Mum’s how much we appreciate everything they do for us.

The last year has been incredibly stressful for everyone; throughout 2020, our whole world went topsy-turvy. This was especially true for parents, as they faced an entirely new set of responsibilities. Whether it be simultaneously working from home while home-schooling, or the delights of explaining a very complex pandemic to small children, parents had a lot on their plate. Therefore, it is more important than ever to make this Mother’s Day one of smiles, laughter, and spoiling!

With several Thingz locations across Perth, north, and south of the river, and down in Bunbury, the ideal gift is never too far away. Our gift stores have an extensive variety of products in stock, just in time for Mother’s Day, spanning home décor, kitchen homewares, Manchester, and more!

Thingz has put together some ideas and inspiration for gifts this Mother’s Day to get you started on picking out the perfect Mother’s Day gift…

Give the Gift of Self-Care

Often our Mums are so focused on looking after everyone else that they forget to put themselves first every once in a while. For the Mum that needs to take a beat, relax and invest some time back into her self-care, we suggest the following gifts:

Mosaic Humidifier


Whether your Mum wants to kick back on the couch with a book or take a minute to meditate in her bedroom before going to sleep, a Humidifier is excellent for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Many have found that having a humidifier in your bedroom can improve sleep quality.
Using the air conditioner or heater at night can make the air in your bedroom very dry. A humidifier pumps moisture back into the air, preventing the airways in your nose and mouth from drying out overnight. This may help you to breathe more evenly and may even reduce snoring. Also, calming essential oils can be put into the humidifier’s water to diffuse around the room slowly. For more information on the benefits of humidifiers for sleep, see this article.

Aromist Essential Oils


Speaking of calming essential oils, you won’t have to look far for quality essential oils to use in your humidifier, with Thingz’s wide range of Aromist Essential Oils now available.

Our essential oils are available in scents including:
– Peppermint
– Sandalwood
– Lemongrass
– Lavender

With special pre-mixes available for varying purposes such as:

– Breathe Easy: Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, and Scotch Pine
– Relax: Lavender, Cedarwood Virginian, Geranium, and Frankincense
– Headache: Lavender, Peppermint, Marjoram, Melissa, and Chamomile.

Essential oils can be used in many different ways, including essential oil burners and diffusers, and as treatments for your skin and hair. Your Mum can put a few drops in her bath to make the experience even more relaxing, or simply dab a little bit on her wrists and behind her ears to experience the delightful natural scents.
