With Christmas fast approaching, everyone is getting reacquainted with just how hard it can be to shop for mums.
Ask them what they want and they’ll tell you “nothing” or “something small, don’t fuss over me”, but that doesn’t really help.
And when you’re strolling through your local Westfield, it can be so hard to figure out what she would actually make use of.
That’s if you feel like braving in-store shopping – most of us have made the full switch to online shopping when it comes to Christmas gifts.
So what exactly should you buy the mum in your life for Christmas 2023?
Whether you’re shopping for your mum, a friend who has just become a mum, or the mother of your own children, we have plenty of Christmas gift ideas for mums right here.
