Mother’s Day is this weekend and if you still haven’t picked up something for your mum, don’t worry you are not too late yet. There are a couple of deals on Buckscoop that would make for an excellent gift. There might not be time to get it delivered by Sunday, unless you are willing to fork out extra for express or overnight shipping. But you can always get a special gift delivered directly to your mum’s doorstep and tell her to lookout for a surprise in the coming week.
Flowers & Choccies – Get it in time for Mother’s Day!
Looking to keep it simple? Then stick with a classic combo like flowers and chocolates. Roses Only have a selection of limited time only offers on flower arrangements. Prices range between $83.95 up to $209.95. If you order now you can still have them delivered on Sunday although they'll charge an extra $5 for this.
Alternatively, a slightly unique twist on the traditional flowers and choccies gift idea would be to combine the two into one. By that I mean choosing to send mum a gift from Edible Blooms. Their choice of Mother's Day chocolate flower bouquets are a novel gift idea which will generally cost you less than real flowers with prices starting at $55 going up to $99 for the majority of bouquets (i.e. the ones on their own without accompanying gifts).
Luxury skincare is a great way to pamper your mother on this special day and age defying products are all the rage at the moment. SK-II is a Japanese brand that has been gaining a lot of traction in Australia (and the rest of the world) thanks to their advertisements which feature the luminous Cate Blanchett. Adore Beauty has a promotion on a SK-II Pitera Essence set - its going at $99 shipped and comes with a free bottle of Trilogy aromatic body oil which has a market value of around $25. The set alone costs at least $20 more at other online outlets, without the added freebie.
Interestingly enough there are quite a few deals on gadgets this Mother’s Day. These range from deals on kitchen appliances to electronics and more. For starters there is a 20% discount at EverydaySource with a minimum spend off $10. It’s a store to pick up a gift for a tech savvy mum who likes her smart phones and tablets - they have cases, screen protectors and even iPad swivel stands going at very affordable prices.
If you live far from home, Logitech has an awesome deal on webcams, wireless headsets and just about anything that you’d need to stay in touch with mum between visits. There is a list of 33 items going at prices of up to 50% off.
Billy Guyatts seems to have the most comprehensive catalogue of gadgets and kitchen appliances on sale. Some of the Mother's Day best buys at Billy Guyatts include interesting picks like a heated blanket or an epilator. If your mum needs a new microwave, then you should check out Appliances Online which has a Samsung Microwave ME83D-1W for just $106 shipped. A nice perk of this deal is that Appliances Online will remove the old microwave when they make delivery.
The way to a man’s heart might be his stomach but the route to a woman’s heart is most definitely a pair of awesome shoes; so if you want to make your mum’s day, why not cash in on this 30% off promo code from Florsheim. This can be used on any full priced item; from sexy stilettos to an elegant pair of Heiress heels going at $118.97 shipped.
Still not sold on any of these gift ideas, well there’s more yet! Peters of Kensington has a pretty eclectic range of gift options. Take your pick from Wellington boots to a set of mixing bowls or some rock star cluster drop earrings.
