Thankfully, we can help you choose. Out of the five gifts we’ve listed below, you’re bound to find something mum will adore. If not, Spotlight is the place to head for those mums who have a creative streak. As a bonus, she’ll probably make you something nice from your gift. Win-win!
Buy her some bakeware
Many mums love cooking a meal for their family or decorating lavish cakes, cupcakes, nibblies or chocolates for parties and other special occasions. If this is your mum, then bakeware is an easy choice. To make things even easier, check out Spotlight’s Bakeware Buying Guide, which lists the baking supplies you’ll need depending on what type of cooking your mum likes to do.
This gift’s ‘sew’ nice
We’re sorry about the pun, but it’s true - if your mum is someone who likes sewing, a sewing machine will certainly make her smile. She may have assumed it was too much of a large investment, but these days, sewing machines can be so affordable!
At Spotlight, you can buy a sewing machine and sewing accessories in the one place, so you’ll never have to go to another store for fabrics and other tools. Check out Spotlight’s huge range of sewing machines and you’ll be sure to find the perfect choice.
Help mum with a great start in art
If your mum loves art but hasn’t actually sat down and started painting, drawing or creating as a hobby or occupation yet, then that’s something you can help her with. You’re able to find beginner’s art supplies – such as the Royal & Langnickel Start In Art collection – that make it so much easier to buy for someone with the passion to create beautiful works of art. Yes, these collections may be targeted towards beginners, but they’ll make your mum feel like a professional.
Give mum the cutting-edge with a Cricut machine
If you’re not a craft aficionado, you probably have absolutely no idea what a Cricut machine is. It’s actually a die-cutting machine that allows you to insert a number of materials such as paper, fabric, vinyl, craft foam, faux leather, sticker paper and similar and the machine cuts shapes or designs into the materials in a similar way that a printer would print something. In fact, you can use it like a printer too, by inserting a marker and allowing the machine to ‘draw’ for you.
There are so many things you can make with a Cricut machine, such as cutting out scrapbooking shapes, making die-cut cards, making decorations, creating vinyl stickers or decals, designing stencils and so much more. You can probably tell how much fun your crafty mum might love one of these. Spotlight have a large range of Cricut Machines in stock too, so check ‘em out!
Buy beautiful bedding
If you’re out of unique ideas but don’t want to give mum the usual box of chocolates, why not consider some beautiful bedding and decorative bedroom accessories? The Bedroom Collections at Spotlight will help your mum create the perfect personal sanctuary where she can relax in style. Thankfully, it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg either.
Imagine mum’s bedroom decked out in a new matching sheets and quilt cover set, as well as decorative cushions and a valance in the same range. She’s probably intended to do it for years, but hasn’t wanted to spoil herself. Now’s your chance to do it for her.
