We all want to spoil our moms (and wives) when Mother’s Day rolls around. Which, if you have not been paying attention, is this Sunday! However, like Valentine’s Day, retailers and restaurants tend to hike up the prices of all possible choices which just leaves you feeling slightly ripped off. We’ve got you covered. Below is our pick of last-minute gifts and ideas to spoil your mom (or wife) without taking out a personal loan.

Sleepwearmom in winter pajamas with child

All moms love to snuggle into warm PJs with a cup of tea; some down time and relaxation is a rare gift. Woolworths is having a sale where buying any two sleepwear items will save up to 25% for WRewards members.


Scarves and costume jewellery are always a fun way to spoil a loved one. So when it’s time to hit the shops consider going to H&M as their choice is endless.

Perfume and cream setsexpensive perfume

I know that all women, no matter what their age, love to get pampered; perfumes and creams are for most a luxury that they will never buy for themselves, so spoil your mom (or wife) this Mother’s Day at Edgars. They have great specials on perfume hampers around this time of the year.

Foodie gifts

If your mom is more of a sweet treats kind of lady, a box of Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate 700g is only R149.95 at Woolies. If bubbles and wine are her thing, then think of the Graham Beck Vintage Brut Rosé 750ml for R199.95 from Woolies, or the Boschendal Grande Cuvée Brut 2009 for R265 a bottle from Wine.co.za or Liquor City.


Head on over to Net Gifts, which is part of Net Florist, and pick up an awesome hamper. You can find everything from a Sally Williams Triple Treat Hamper from R219.95, to an I Love Mom Gift Set for R1,349.95.

You don’t have to spend a fortune this Mother’s Day to make hers an extra special one.

How Americans will break the bank

Americans will spend $21,4bn this Mother’s Day, according to HowMuch and the National Retail Federation – that’s an average of $172,22 from each child or spouse. And it’s not even for every mom in the States, as just more than 15% of Americans plan to abstain from celebrating the day at all.
