10 last-minute Mother's Day gifts that last the test of time

Last year, Australians spent $733 million on Mother’s Day gifts with that figure expected to rise in 2019.

However, research shows many of these Mother’s Day purchases do not have a lasting impact.

Jackie Babbage from the global online gifting site Gifting Owl said her company was about to change all that.   

” it's really common to send mum a bouquet of flowers on Mother's Day. But this year we want people to think outside the box and try a fun activity with their mum.”

“These days we are so busy that we tend to leave things to the last minute - especially when it comes to choosing a gift,” Ms Babbage said.

“Rushed decisions can often lead to buying something that won’t stand the test of time.

“That’s where we come in. Gifting Owl is the world’s largest adventure and experience gifting platform making last-minute gift buying a breeze.

“Better still, adventure experiences create happy memories that last forever.

“We’ve selected some of our favourite experience gifts from around the world for Mother’s Day gift hunters that have either run out of ideas or a run out of time.”
