    Mother's Day is in a little over a week, which means if you don't have a present for your mum yet, you either aren't sure what to get or you're a terrible child.

    I relate to the latter and we should be ashamed.

    Well, if you're lost on what to get the mum who tells great jokes, I've got your back with these gift ideas.


    The best kind of mum is the one who makes you laugh.

    1. These socks that are hilarious, but will also keep her feet feeling toasty warm.


    The letters on these socks are sewn in, not printed on, so they'll last for ages. They're super soft and machine washable.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $7.99.

    2. This ~spicy~ cooking book called Fifty Shades of Chicken that will have your mum feeling hot under the collar.

    This book of 50 recipes takes inspiration from renowned novel, Fifty Shades of Gray. It'll teach the reader how to bind, stuff and rub their chicken for the juiciest and most delicious poultry they've made yet.

    Buy it from The Book Depository for $34.87.

    3. This absurdly adorable garden ornament that is sure to delight any mum who's equal parts cat lover and green thumb.

    4. This clean/dirty dishwasher magnet because there's no doubt that she's complained about you, your siblings or her partner stacking dirty dishes over clean ones.


    All she'll have to do is turn the tab to indicate whether the rest of the household should or shouldn't chuck their dish in — think public bathroom cubicle. It also has a "running" function, so they don't try to yank it open mid-clean.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $14.99.

    5. This mug that offers a sincere apology for the rest of the bunch your mum got stuck with.


    This completely factual mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, so it's the perfect vessel for your mother to consume her morning brew from.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $25.99.

    6. This book that mirrors Maurice Sendack's Where The Wild Things Are, in which the mother is the one who finds herself on a peculiar adventure.

    7. This fantastic embroidery pattern, which is the perfect introduction into an excellent hobby.

    8. This shirt that is a spot on gift for any mother who had to live through 2019.

    Buy it from Redbubble for $32.79 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    9. This tote bag that's perfect for her to take to the shops and show off her insane strength.

    10. This candle that will light up her life the way you've always tried to — even though it doesn't always work out.


    This candle is not only gorgeously decorated with words a whole bunch of us probably need to tell our mums, but you can choose the scent to make sure she will appreciate all of it.

    Buy the standard (255g) size from Etsy for $34.44 (also available in mini, large and extra large).

    11. This tea-riffic mug that your mum is bound to use every single morning.

    Sometimes it's hard to get a present, be it time, money or otherwise and chances are your mum understands. Still, get her a card that'll make her laugh and promise to try and do better next year.

    Buy it from Redbubble for $4.47.

    You, knowing you've definitely got the best Mother's Day present for your mum this year.
