Quirky Gifts for Mum brought to you by Shopping Links and Yellow Octopus
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, I’m pleased to inform you that it is Mother’s Day this weekend.
Next to Christmas and Easter, Mother’s Day is my favourite holiday. For obvious reasons! I love receiving pressies but most of all, I love a day dedicated to making me love being a mummy. Every one is on their best behaviour, I get a sleep in, breakfast in bed, and my favourite foods for lunch and dinner.
If you’re looking for some ideas to treat your mother, I have a fabulous post coming tomorrow all about creating a DIY Spa Day for your mother.
Quirky gifts for Mum? I’ve got that covered right here, thanks to Yellow Octopus, home of Australia’s coolest gifts and gadgets.
Yellow Octopus Quirky Gifts for Mum – Me Time
We are always banging on about Me Time. It’s very important to make everyone feel valued and special, and Mother’s Day is a very good time for that sort of thing.
I’ve teamed up with Yellow Octopus and have tracked down some awesome quirky gifts for mum that will encourage her to take some Me Time.
- Mustard Octeapus Tea Infuser $19.99 – pop some tea leaves into this fab tea infuser, pop it into a mug, pop your feet up and enjoy a nice cup of tea
- Lady of the House Downtown Abbey Mug $17.99 – look at that, the perfect mug for your cup of tea and Mother’s Day. The Lady of the House is in the house!
- DC Comics Wonder Woman Chair Cape $44.99 – whether Mum is sitting at the desk paying bills, running a business, studying, catching up online or gaming, she will feel like a superhero with her Wonder Woman chair cape. Matching cuffs optional.
- Luminara Scented Flameless Wax Candles $65.99 – candles are a Me Time essential but they’re not always practical with small kids underfoot. These candles are battery operated and even have an optional remote control.

Thanks to Yellow Octopus, I’ve found some amazing quirky gifts for Mum to make her want to hang out in the kitchen. Yes, even me!
