Mother’s Day is approaching fast, and the pressure to find a ‘good’ present can be stressful. But instead of gifting unwanted gifts (for the sake of it) that’ll end up in the local thrift store come next year, how about looking for something truly needed in their life? 

Whether you’re celebrating your mom, aunt, grandma, mother-in-law or simply the person who raised you, give them something they can cherish for years to come.

Here’s our guide of 12 long-lasting and high-quality gifts, that are just as thoughtful and extraordinary as they are.

7. Paris Pepper Mill, $50

We haven’t packed out this guide with kitchenware for a reason - moms deserve personal gifts for them to enjoy, not ones that create more work for them! But more than just an iconic workhorse, Peugeot’s salt and pepper mills give a timeless elegance to any kitchen, making sharing a meal with loved ones feel that bit more special.

8. Bed Linen Bundle, from $313

One for the interior lovers. These beautiful linen bedding sets by Piglet In Bed will make their bed a cozy haven they’ll love to wrap themselves up in.

An investment Mother’s day gift - but one they’ll treasure forever - is our Solidteknics wrought iron frying pan. If your mom enjoys cooking with cast iron but finds it too heavy, this skillet is an ideal present. Made from wrought iron, it’s half the weight of normal cast iron, and covered by a mult-century warranty.

10. Long Travel Yoga Mat, $92

Help mom make time for her, with an investment in her wellness and wellbeing. It's relatively slimmer than traditional yoga mats for easy carrying - and folds down to the size of a newspaper! Who wouldn’t want to shake things up, pop their mat in a rucksack, and do their practice anywhere?
