5 gifts for Mum that get our tick - Toaster
Russell Hobbs Kitchen Metallics RHMT4, $150
Here’s an idea you can steal. Make mum breakfast in bed using this toaster. Then when she rises, she’ll see you also bought her a fancy new toaster. You. Are. Welcome.
5 gifts for Mum that get our tick - Hairdryer
Remington Pro-Air Turbo D5220AU, $100
We found only good things to say about this hairdryer when we tested it. So it’s likely mum will too. You can also pick it up for a great price at the moment – a Google search shows it’s on special for about $60 at 100% Appliances, Briscoes and Noel Leeming.
5 gifts for Mum that get our tick - Bluetooth speaker
JBL Go, $65, or Sony SRS-X11, $99
Mum will be able to blast Ed Sheeran in the garden with one of these little Bluetooth speakers. The JBL has slightly better sound quality but the Sony’s battery life is twice as long and it’s a bit easier to use.
5 gifts for Mum that get our tick - Spiraliser
PL8 By Progressive Professional Spiraliser, $109
Got a mum who likes to eat healthy? This spiraliser topped our test. Mum will be able to whip up zoodles with ease. Not keen on the idea of fake pasta for dinner? Don’t worry, it also does an awesome job on kumara. Hello curly fries!
5 gifts for Mum that get our tick - Stick blender
Breville The Control Grip BSB510, $159
Want mum to regularly think about how awesome you are? She’ll do that every time she uses this stick blender. It blitzes veges in no time and makes processing pesto easy. Plus it won’t take up heaps of cupboard space. Give the model number a Google to find the best price.
