When it comes to our needs, mothers know best. They instinctively know when we need some compassion and are always ready to provide us with comfort. We look to motherly figures in our lives for protection, advice, and most importantly unconditional love and support. An embrace from the person who fills the role of a mom is so precious because there is nothing else that can fill that gap.


No number of words and gifts can fully express the gratitude we feel when it comes to everything that our mother figures do for us and our loved ones, however, Woolies’ range of Mother’s Day gifting options comes close! From sweet treats, fashion, homeware and beyond, Woolies makes it easy for us to express our love. Here’s to honouring our queens on Mother’s Day and every day.


  1. SWEET SURPRISES: Chocolates and other sweet items tick multiple boxes on the perfect-gift checklist. Make all the moms in your life smile with the Artisanally Made Traditional Nougat and Turkish Delights which are crafted in small batches, using time-honoured artisanal techniques. These make the perfect budget-friendly gifts and are Halaal, Kosher certified. If you would like to gift mom with a treat that requires minimal gift wrapping, then the Chocolate Decadence Selection in the stunning Amy Ayanda Decorated Box should be your number one choice. For those of us who love to offer our loved ones an array of choices, the classic Milk, Dark and White Chocolate Selection 18 Piece is the ideal.


  1. BREAKFAST IN BED: Gather all the kids and put together a cute breakfast for mom! We know moms love to see everyone getting along so the sight of familial bonding is a gift that money can’t buy. Rest assured, you can find all your kitchen essentials at Woolies from food to homeware and more. The recently launched kitchenware items by The Lazy Makoti are a cheat code because you can gift mom with these, and then sneakily use them to whip up the best cupcakes ever! If your baking skills are rather shaky, then pick up the Floral Vanilla Tray Bake and strategically place the delicious baked goods on the Milano Marble Composite Rectangular Platter for a scrumptious breakfast snack platter. Make sure to prepare her favourite hot beverage and serve it in the Best Mom Ever Mug for maximum enjoyment. For a more festive breakfast, start the day’s celebrations with “mom-osas” using some of WCellar’s sparkling wine options. The Kleine Zalze Brut Cap Classique and Ken Forrester Silver Rose would be perfect for an ice-cold mimosa. For added character, put some flowers or an Artificial Eucalyptus Plant on the tray.


  1. THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING: A gift that can last long enough to witness various seasons, milestones and multiple generations is the ultimate possession. Keep mom snug and warm for winters to come with the Winter Reversable Silky Soft Duvet, made from microfibre that is hypoallergenic for a super warm and a sumptuously cosy feel, the Washed Tufted Duvet is available in a beautifully warm terracotta shade. Woolies offers a variety of blankets and throws to ensure that moments on the couch are cosy for mom. For those special family recipes, spoil her with the Oval Cast Iron Casserole 30cm. The cast iron Madison Collection allows you to cook your meals to perfection. Now available in a beautiful new blue hue, this range offers pots, pans, and casseroles, ideal for slow cooking.


BLOOMS TO MAKE HER BLUSH: Make your mom’s face light up with a beautiful flower arrangement like the Sherbet Sky Bouquet or Peach Sunset Bouquet paired with the Tall Cylinder Vase. For something unique, gift her with the Succulent in Novelty Cat Pot. Fresher for longer, 90% of Woolies flowers and plants are grown in South Africa. Woolworths is also on a journey with farmers to use water, fertiliser, and pesticides responsibly.  

  1. SENSATIONAL SCENTS: Lift her spirits and transform the ambience of her home with some magnificent Scented Coco Soy Wax Candles and Scented Fragrance Diffusers. Build a thoughtful gift by pairing these with the Curved Textured Candle and Arched Candles.


  1. THE GIFT OF SELF-CARE: Moms put everyone’s needs above their own, and this is the perfect occasion to pamper them. This Mother’s Day, nudge her to practice self-care with the Botanicals Soak and Scrub Set available in a Mandarin and Basil Scent. If she is a beauty lover, indulge her passion with some WBeauty essentials such as the Gel Nail Polish and Hydro Lipstick both available in a variety of shades she will enjoy.


  1. STYLISH SLUMBER PARTY: The Woolies quality and value for money sleepwear sets will ensure that your mom is set for a blissful and snug night’s sleep. Drape her in the warmth and comfort of the Plush Fleece Sets paired with the Plain Fleece Gown. For the fashionista mom, bring out her wild side with the zebra print JTone Women’s Pyjama Set and JTone Women’s’ Night Sleep Tee. Throw the cutest slumber party in the matching Mother’s Day Twinning Sets for mom and the little ones.


  1. THREADS OF LOVE: Finding mom a special item of clothing or accessory that will speak to her personality is a breeze when you choose Woolies, this Mother’s Day. Give her the gift of warmth and allow her to unwrap the Belted Knit Kimono which comes in three different colours. The monogram wrap will feel like a warm embrace from you every time she puts it on. If you want to gift mom with something that she can hold on to for winters to come, opt for the Chunky Tassel Scarf. For small gifts that can make a big impact, head over to the accessories section. With a touch of glam, mom will feel like the stunning woman that she is when she is embellished in the Rose gold Double Hoop Earrings.


  1. WRAP IT UP: Now that you have selected all the gifts fit for a queen, complete the package with the perfect gift bag. Woolies has an assortment of gift bags to suit gifts of all sizes.
