Last Minute Mothers Day Gift Ideas 2016

This post is really last minute, but hopefully my Mothers Day gift ideas will help you out if you haven’t been able to pick anything up yet or if you want to add something a little extra.
Pamper your mum
mothers day Mothers day is a chance for your mum to put her feet up and relax. You could have a DVD day or a ‘spa’ day. Two movies I highly recommend are Big Eyes and (if she likes comedy movies) Get Hard. I think that scented candles always create a great ambiance for relaxing, if you can’t afford the full-size glasshouse candles the minis are great too (their scent throw is amazing), they’re available at Peter Alexander and David Jones. also pictured- *Ulta3 Mothers Day gift card with nail polish attached and Care and Repair Nail nurture kit, available at selected Pharmacies.

Below are the other *Ulta3 Mothers Day Cards that are available

For Creative mums
mothers dayAbove is a selection of items that would be great for the creative mums. The Fujifilm instax mini 8 is great for capturing candid wallet sized photos, I’ve seen at target they now also have a new range of frames and accessories specifically for the instax prints. Also pictured- A great little inspirational book of mantras, quotes and words of wisdom, A note book for her thoughts and ideas and ‘The Urban Canvas’ book of colour-in postcards, both from Typo.

Happy Mother’s day for tomorrow to all the mum’s (including my mum) & grandmothers. I hope you all have a lovely day. Also thoughts to all whose mums are no longer with them.

Where to find Mickey Mouse products

Over the last month or so I have noticed that many stores in Australia have been stocking Mickey Mouse (and Minnie) merchandise. Everything from Pajamas to accessories and even stationery. Here are the stores currently stocking Mickey Mouse products and my picks from each store.


There are many different cute Minnie and Mickey mouse products available at Typo, including buffalo journals, drink bottles, tea travel cups and much more. Some of my favourite items are pictured below.

Mickey Mouse products

1. ‘Mickey’ Easy on the eye sleep mask 2. ‘Mickey’ Mcfly alarm clock 3. ‘Mickey & Minnie’ On A Roll tape 4. ‘Mickey’ Licensed Buffalo A5 Journal

Peter Alexander

Peter Alexander has released a new Disney collection called ‘Pretty Grungy’, it includes sleepwear and some other items printed with classic Disney characters on them like One Hundred and One dalmatians and dumbo, but it also includes Mickey and Minnie. My Mickey PA picks are below.

Mickey Mouse Products

1. Mickey Mouse Playsuit 2. Minnie Bow Headband 3. Ladies Minnie Scuffs 4. Mickey Short Sleeve top


PA sleepwear a little out of your price range? Target has some more affordable Mickey and Minnie options. I have a feeling the were released for Valentine’s Day (I could be wrong), but the items are still available in-store and online. My picks are below.

Mickey Mouse products

1. Mickey Minnie Nightie 2. Mickey Minnie Short Jumpsuit

Jay Jays

Another place that I noticed were selling Mickey Mouse products was Jay jays. They have a few cool tops and an awesome pair of Mickey silhouette leggings. My ‘leggings should not be worn as pants’ rule still stands, but I would wear them under maybe a plain t-shirt dress or I think a black skater skirt would look cute with them. My picks are below.

Mickey Mouse products

1. Mickey Yardage Tank 2. Mickey Leggings 3. Mickey/Minnie Homie Raglan
