A Quick Mother’s Day Gift Guide

No matter how old you get, you will always get to turn to mom in times of trouble. Our mothers have multiple jobs including caring for us. This nonpaying job is one they’ve been sentenced to for life and they do it willingly.

Moms truly are super heroes who save us on a daily basis. On Sunday the 12th of May 2019 we have the opportunity to celebrate our mothers properly. Make this Mother’s day extra special by getting her something truly iconic.

One great thing about Moms is that they don’t expect you to spend your entire paycheck. They do however love when you’ve put some thought into their gift.

Moms deserve the best but that doesn’t mean it has to cost you an arm and a leg. Here are some fabulous Mother’s Day gift options from the local online stores.

Treats & Drinks

Huguenot Fine Chocolates

There’s nothing better than adding a little chocolate to the spoils. Huguenot Fine Chocolates creates all their chocolates with love. There are different filling and if you want to make this Mother’s Day extra special why not get mom a box of her own. Forget about store bought chocolate, support the local brands and give mom a treat she’s never had before.


Early mornings sipping coffee or tea with mom is always best. If she’s a tea lover check out Tealyst and buy mom a deliciously flavored loose leaf tea. If you’re not sure which tea she’ll like you can always get a once-off subscription box. These boxes are filled with different flavored teas giving mom a variety to taste and enjoy. A once-off box will set you back R299 but will leave mom with a huge smile on her face.

Coffee Drops Co

For the caffeine craving mom’s there’s a new coffee subscription box in town. Why not get mom a once-off box of beans or ground coffee. The subscription box includes 4 x 80g bags of coffee from different local roasters. Not only will mom have plenty of fresh coffee to enjoy but she’ll also get to try local brands. If you order now, mom will be receiving her Coffee box on the 14th of May.


If there’s one thing every mom loves it’s a surprise flower delivery. With Netflorist you can pre-order your flowers today to make sure mom gets it on Mother’s Day. And for anyone who orders flowers for Mother’s Day will get a free box of Lindt chocolates added to the mix.

It’s a steal but hurry you have to order by the 9th of May if you want that free box of chocolates. (You have to spend R300 or more to qualify for the free box of Lindt Chocolates.)


Every mom deserves a nice keepsake she can wear to remember how loved she is. If you’re looking for something extra special these local jewelers will be your best bet.

Jessica Jane Jewellery

For the pet loving mom’s the sterling silver necklaces from Jessica Jane Jewellery is a must. You can get mom a pendant of her very own fur kid.

Wanderlust Lockets 

Then there’s the gorgeous Wanderlust Lockets where you can buy mom her own locket set. My absolute favourite is the Sapphire Sky set. Mom can boast with a gorgeous necklace that serves as a constant reminder of how valued she is

Tora Grace Samsara bracelets

One thing I’ve found is that mom’s love receiving personalized gifts. Sure they pretty much adore anything you get them, but there’s something about a personalized item that makes them shed tears of joy.

Tora Grace is known for their spectacular range of Samsara Bracelets. Most already have writing one them so you can pick from that selection or you can Design Your Own. If you’ve got a special message or even an inside joke between you and mom you can engrave it on a Samsara Bracelet for mom.

Tora Grace has even compiled a few Mom Stacks and the good news is they’re on sale.
