Fair warning to all children: M-Day lands on Sunday, May 14th this year. That means your status of ‘golden child’ now hangs in the balance. One bad gift, and you’re going to get demoted to ‘incidental offspring’ or worse. Fortunately, there are tons of deals on great presents for mum that will arrive before then. Amazon AU, in particular, are offering some decent discounts on games, accessories, and LEGO. Stuff that may just buy you a year of non-doghouse accommodation.

LEGO Botanical Sets

When you think about a Mother’s Day gift, perhaps a LEGO set isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But the (relatively) new Succulents and Orchid sets are the latest in the black-box series intended for people aged 18+. Since they’re for adults, they’re meant to be built and set out on display. Maybe a mother in your life would want one. Or maybe you want to add some buildable greenery to your own house or office.

LOTR: Rivendell 10316

Withings ScanWatch

Available in Black, White and Rose Gold with two different sizes (38mm or 42mm)

Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 41mm Smart Watch

Apple Watch Series 7 GPS 45mm Smart Watch

The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 41mm and 45mm models are heavily discounted on Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG.

Switch Solutions

Mother’s Day Gift Idea

For a game with a high percentage chance of being dug by a mum, you really can’t go past Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This is far and away one of the most relaxing games to grace the Nintendo Switch. There’s near infinite replayability in this building, decorating, fishing, farming, collecting, exploring sim, and the best thing of all is that you can do it at whatever pace you feel like.

PlayStation Prezzies


Hogwarts Legacy

Horizon Forbidden West

Note: Burning Shores DLC now available for $29.95

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart

There’s no shortage of mum-appeasing options when it comes to PlayStation’s vast games catalog. All that being said, you really can’t go wrong with Hogwarts Legacy. If she grew up reading these books, being able to fly a broom around (instead of on your floor all the time) is sheer wish fulfilment.
