Lets firstly get something clear – it doesn’t need to be Mother’s Day, Christmas or her birthday to buy your Mum a gift. Mother’s deserved to be spoilt no matter the occasion.
Especially when it comes to spoiling her with wine (or wine related gifts)! Being a mother myself, and having to go through 9+ months without wine, I know what a sacrifice it is!
With Mother’s Day fast approaching this year (don’t forget it’s always the second Sunday in May), I thought it would be a good time to put together a list of fabulous gift ideas ma’s and no doubt females, in general, will love.
And hey, if you end up putting a little wish list together for yourself, I don’t blame you!
Please note: I share products I love and enjoy myself (or wish I was getting for Mother’s Day – hint hint Mr Spittoon and Baby + Toddler TC!). I am an affiliate partner with some of the brands below, therefore by clicking through and making a purchase, I may receive a small amount of commission.
If your mama is a serious wine lover then a monthly wine subscription is going to make you the most favourite child ever! My pick is Good Pair Days as not only do you get a wicked cheeseboard esky when you sign up currently, but you also get plenty of perks along the way. Not to mention each month with your wines you get tasting notes and a recipe to match each of the wines.
If your mum is a bit of a wine aficionado, then look no further than a Coravin wine preserver or Coravin pivot (plus use my discount code CASEY10 for 10% off all items, including sale items). If your mama is serious about her wine then she is going to absolutely love one of these beauties. Basically they allow you to open a bottle of wine, have a glass and then preserve the rest of the bottle for days, weeks, and sometimes even months or years.
They really are a must have for the serious wine-loving mums out there. You can learn more about wine preservation systems here.
Wine Gift Box
I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a better gift than a gorgeous wine gift pack. But which one do you choose?
Well, I have done the hard yards for you and done some research into the best wine gift packs in Australia right now – check it out here.
I have a pretty good collection of wine socks. In fact I might be a little obsessed. Which is why when I saw the below beauties – I just had to share!
These Give Me Rosé And Tell Me I’m Pretty socks are available on the Just In Time Gourmet website. You can add them to one of their Create Your Own Hampers alongside a ton of other wine related goodies like:
PS: And I have just spotted these Great Minds Drink Alike Wine Socks too!! Love!
Blind Wine Tasting Card Game
Is mum a games lover as well? Then you definitely need to check out the Blinders Game from the same people who created the SOMM documentaries.
This fun blind wine tasting card game, brings together the fun of games and blind tasting. With my parents visiting next month, we are sure to play a few games, so stay tuned to see how we go!
I have a discount code for 20% off which I would love for you to use!
Platters Made From Recycled Wine Barrels
They are beautifully made, they smell great and they look fantastic adorned with delicious cheeses and meats. I am so obsessed with mine that I get out the canola oil after every use to oil it back up so it stays in pristine condition for as long as possible!
Fiction Wine Books
There are so many awesome wine books out there. Many of these pack tons of delicious wine education into. However alongside all those great non-fiction wine books, I love myself a good fiction wine book.
After being sent a sample of one of Peter Stafford Bow’s books last year to read, Mr Spittoon then went out and bought me two more of his books as I loved the first one so much!
I also really enjoyed Root Cause by Steven Laine when I read it in 2019.
I was sent a wine jigsaw from Water & Wines in 2021 and I absolutely loved it! It was the Australia map. I did it with my mum while drinking a few wines over a number of nights and we had such great fun.
Then for Christmas 2022 I thought we’d repeat the experience and I bought the Champagne jigsaw for us to do!
Personalised Wine & Champagne Bottles
The folks over at Secret Bottle are offering personalised Champagne bottles in 2023 which I think are pretty cool. A bottle of G.H.Mumm with a personalised monogram would really wow her I am sure. You can choose the colour of the monogram (gold, red or silver) and you can include up to 12 characters! Aside from the Mumm, there are a number of other bottles you can choose from too.
