5. A new style
Think mum could do with a new do? Send her off to the team at Marcus Edward Salon or Vibe Hair and not only will she enjoy a few hours of pampering, she’ll walk out feeling like a brand new woman. The team at Marcus Edward Salon are the transformation experts and they love nothing better than a good hair makeover. Hand picked by Marcus Edward, they are some of the best stylists in Australia.
Knotty towels are bang on trend, and the Dept. of Swim has a great collection of them. A towel is a practical item that’s also a thing of beauty when the right design is chosen, so be sure to check the collection out. While you’re at it, take a look at the excellent range of resort wear.
Facials offer many benefits and can be hugely relaxing for mum. A facial increases circulation of the blood under the skin, allowing the skin optimal health for cell regeneration. A good facial can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production – the building block of the skin. Facials can also slow the ageing process and allow skin to feel smoother, more supple, and radiant.
Give mum a fresh start and book her a facial at Esteem Medi Spa.
8. Tablet case
If you can’t afford to buy your mum a new tablet, you can at least buy her a tablet case for the one she’s already got.

While it might have been a while since you picked up a pen and paper, chances are your mum is still happy to pen a letter or two.
