19 surprising eco-friendly gifts that will delight your Mum on Mother’s Day

Welcome to Twizzle Designs’ very first Blog post – just in time to share some helpful and interesting ideas for Mother’s Day gifts. 

If you’re feeling a bit frustrated or unsure about which gift you could give your Mum, we’d love to help with these 19 surprisingly different gift ideas.

Yes, there’s still time to duck out and get a voucher or gift inspired by this list and surprise your Mum. Or if you have a young family - why not use this list to help your kids surprise their Mum.

Firstly, a quick disclaimer - this post is not full of products from our website. We wanted to share ideas that are a little different, surprising, or fun experiences to delight Mums of all ages.

Also, I hope that there is a gift idea here to inspire you – even if you’re busy like I am and always stretched for time!

So, be adventurous - forget the slippers and hand cream this year – and try something different!

Let’s get started...


EXPERIENCES – fun things Mum may love to do… 

Twizzle Designs blog about gift ideas. Gift experiences for Mothers Day include pat a giraffe.

You might like to try one of these… a Voucher can be purchased for most of these experiences, making life easy all ‘round.

⭐  Movie vouchers – now that we’re happily going back into cinemas, a Movie voucher may be just the thing to get. New movies are being released regularly.⁠

⭐  How about a forest bathing walk⁠. This is a restful, guided immersive walk through a local forest, to drink in the fresh air and peacefulness.

⭐  Does Mum have a favourite band she’d like to see? Book a ticket (or two) and send her off to enjoy.

⭐  If she lives close enough to a zoo where you can "pat a giraffe”, sleep beside a lion (okay, there is glass between!) or cuddle a koala – what a great surprise gift!

⭐  Buy a good book that she’s been eyeing off recently so she can enjoy reading it at her leisure.

⭐  And of course, eco-friendly wine, or chocolates are wonderful gifts where every last sip, or morsel, can be enjoyed. 



Share a gift of a picnic for any occasion. Family enjoying an eco friendly picnic. Twizzle Designs blog.

🎀  Pack and deliver a hamper full of picnic goodies for Mum and take her to a nice park or reserve to share and enjoy time together.

🎀  Take your Mum to High Tea (bookings may be getting a little tight though) or, if it’s her style, buy her some Australian tea and a nice teapot so she can enjoy ongoing delightful afternoon teas.

🎀  Kids can make home made biscuits and pack them into a nice re-usable round tin. Add a handwritten card – “Made with Love”.

🎀  A personalised, or hand crafted, coffee mug will be remembered each time it’s used over many years. (Support Australian made if possible.)

🎀  Give a voucher for a cooking class - does Mum love Asian or French cuisine - or is she curious about Bush Food? Maybe, she'd just love a chocolate appreciation event.



Unique gift - Llama walk - Blog - Twizzle Designs. Give something different - see our Earth friendly gift blog.

 🎉  Depending on where your Mum lives she may enjoy a llama or alpaca walk, a camel ride or a horse trek.

🎉  If your Mum likes the coast, a swim with the dolphins may be just the thing she'd like to experience.



 Suprise gift - indoor rock wall climbing - Blog - Twizzle Designs

🏃‍♀️  Do you have a fit and energetic Mum? Maybe a rock climbing voucher would be a great gift.

🏃‍♀️  Has Mum been longingly talking about that Zumba, Line Dancing or Tap class held locally. Why not give her a voucher for a couple of dance lessons to get things started.

🏃‍♀️  Make her smile with tickets to see her favourite sport tennis, footy, golf, rugby or motor sports.



Gardening gifts for family -  Blog - Twizzle Designs

🌼   Most gardeners I know will always be happy to receive plants. Don’t know what she likes? Buy a voucher so she can choose her favourites – because part of the fun is shopping for your plants. 😊

🌼  Remember, a bunch of flowers will fill her heart with love – and a living plant for her garden can keep giving joy for many years ahead.

🌼  Gather up some herb seedlings, a pretty pair of gardening gloves and a flower pot to make a fun project perfect for more recent converts to gardening. Kids can also paint the pot to make it a very special and unique gift.



I hope we've inspired your with all these different experiences. We are happy to say that they can all be be organised to be plastic free and Earth-friendly. 🥰
