Mother's Day 2017: A thoroughly modern gift guide

It's that time of year again, and we're here to make sure your mum isn't disappointed!

Although the finer things in life - like sweet smelling soaps and scented candles - are the perfect gift for Mother's Day, it's the more contemporary presents that may please her most.

Looking for the perfect gift for your mum?

Take a look through our gift guide for inspiration - we've got something for every mum!

Flask keyring

Every mum has it tough at times. Highlight this - with tongue firmly in cheek - by gifting her with this keyring flask, $18, from Third Drawer Down. What you fill it with is entirely up to you!

Toiletry case

Mum on the move? Ensure every transfer - local or global - is done with a super chic element. This Kip & Co Mauve toiletry case, $89, evokes old school glamour with a hell of a lot of modern-day attitude!

Glue gun

The ultimate household helper, the $69 RYOBI 18V ONE+ Hot Glue Gun is the first step towards mum finally getting round to those craft projects she's passionate about.

Boozy book

If mum is tired of traditional bedtime stories, mix it up a little for her with a ‘looser’ version of a much-loved tale. We love Five Give Up The Booze, $15.60 from ASOS, which offers a hysterical spoof of the gangs trials and tribulations when detoxing for a month.

Corner sander

If your mum is more interested in restoration than creation, the RYOBI 18V ONE+ Corner Sander, $79, is the perfect problem solver when it comes to bringing worn and weathered vintage and pre-loved pieces back to life.

Don't miss a beat

Not only does it look like a donut, this Lexon Hoop Speaker, $179.95 from Hunting For George, lets mum listen to music on the move. Even if she is going for a cheeky pastry with the girls!

Movie must-have

Send mum to the movies in style with a Gold Pass movie voucher for her and a favourite friend. A night of cinematic indulgence is sure to be appreciated!

Instant enjoyment

Allow mum to pop those happy snaps on the fridge - pride of place of course - in half a second with the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2 Smartphone Instant Printer, $269, from JB Hi-Fi.

Get smart

Make sure mum’s smart watch never runs out of steam with this gorgeously designed Native Union Marble Smart Watch Dock, $89.95. Sleek and minimal, this dock is perfect for your device, and your interior design.

Mum on the run

Gift mum some trainers she will actually want to be seen in! These Nike Flex Supreme 5 Women's Training Shoes, $119.99 from Rebel Sport, are designed for daily exercise sessions.

RYOBI drill

Make DIY easier and speedier for mum with the $139 RYOBI 18V ONE+ Brushless Drill Driver, which incorporates technology allowing one battery to power over 50 tools.

Let there be light

Does mum love to read on the porch on balmy evenings? Or perhaps camping is her bag? Either way, ensure she does both in super chic style with this Menu Carrie Portable Led Lamp, $350 from Hunting for George.

Office essential

If your mum is a keen reader, you can't go wrong with Amazon's ever-popular Kindle Paperwhite eReader, $174 from Officeworks.

Tea for two

The cuppa just got super contemporary with this BREW Cafetiere X Tom Dixon, $360, from Third Drawer Down. Precision engineering meets contemporary design.
