5 last minute gift ideas for boat loving mums

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’ve left Mother’s Day to the last minute. It’s okay, we’ve got your back – especially if your mum’s the boat loving kind. And, if you’re like many Australians unable to see mum in person this Sunday, most of these gifts can be sent remotely, which makes them even better.


Here are five Mother’s Day gift ideas that can be organised in record time and are guaranteed to make the Pool Room.


  1. Audible subscription

Choose a Gift Membership for mum, and get her started on her next literary adventure. If she loves the ocean, there are plenty of fiction and non-fiction stories for her to choose from. Simply choose the period of time you’d like to gift her, and then click Buy Now.


If mum already has an Audible account, buy her credits so she can use them to listen to whatever she wants. The best thing is that she gets free range to choose the Audible Book she desires, and you look like the most considerate child on the planet.


Membership Gifts start at $15.00 for one month. Head to the Audible Gift Centre to get started.


  1. Ravensburger Pirate Boat Adventure Puzzle

Plenty of Australians have become master puzzle solvers over the past months, charging through 1,000 piece challenges faster than a jet-powered hydroplane. So, why not up the ante this Mother’s Day and get mum an ocean-themed puzzle of her own to enjoy?


Ravensburger is known for being a quality-made puzzle brand, with loads of cool illustrations and artworks to complete. They also have a range of underwater puzzles – from pirate boats to underwater adventures.


Check in with your local Games Store to see if they’re in stock. (Before you bother changing out of your PJs.)


  1. Uber Eats Dessert

Getting delicious treats ordered to your door is pretty much the best thing in the world. Ever. So, why not order mum a delicious plate of churros or brownies on Mother’s Day? Just head to Uber Eats, list her address and track the order until it gets to her door.


You can also ask for ‘no contact’ delivery, which means the Delivery Driver leaves the food at her door. Just make sure she’s home around the time you’re planning to order her surprise. Plus, you’re supporting local business by buying from cafes and shops in the neighbourhood.


That makes you a double-legend.


  1. Anaconda Voucher

Another easy, no-contact pressie, that mum is bound to love, is an E-Gift Card from Anaconda, BCF, or any other boating store that offers online gift cards. Simply choose the amount you’d like to spend, and mum will receive the Gift Card in her Email Inbox.


There are plenty of great specials on at many of these large retailers right now, which means even a small amount will go a long way. And, mum gets to spend the voucher on whatever she likes, which is a win-win for you both.

  1. Esky

Every sea farer needs a darn good Esky, which is why mum needs the best of the best this Mother’s Day. Bunnings sells a fantastic range, including a 27L Retro Hard Cooler Esky brand model for $69 or get your hands on a 10L Hard Chilla Cooler for $19.98.


Bunnings are great with social distancing in-store, so if you do have to go in, you should be able to do so safely and efficiently. If you’ve got the time, why not fill it up with ice and put some of her favourite beers or ciders in there too?


You’ll be child of the year for sure.


Happy Mother’s Day!

To all of the amazing mums out there, thank you for all that you do! We hope you have a wonderful day on Sunday, whether you’re spending it with your kids, or feeling the love from a distance in order to be safe. And of course, if you are out on the water, please stay safe out there too.
