Mother's Day Gift Guide + Giveaway

All items available at Millers

With Mother's Day edging closer (Sunday 11th May) it's time to start looking for that perfect present your mum will love. When I'm shopping for presents for my mum, I love to go for clothes and accessories. They're exciting, they're fun, they're also return/exchange-able if they don't fit or suit. Unless your mum is a shopoholic, I think many mums out there don't go out shopping for themselves enough, so how about you get the job done for her :)

Above are some "types" of mums I've put together with individual pieces from Millers as gift ideas. It's almost crazy how affordable everything at this store is... you could shop her a whole new wardrobe for under $200!

GIVEAWAY

For your chance to win a Millers Mother's Day Gift Pack for your mum (or for any mums reading my blog!) valued at $50, comment on this post and describe your mum's style. Remember to leave your email so I can contact you if you win!

Entries close 27th April
Open to Australian residents only
Prize will be shipped to the winner

Congratulations eisabainyo

  1. My mum's style is comfortable and casual, a mixture of classic pieces and occasional whimsy, especially when it comes to silk!

  2. My mum's style is all about comfort and easy-to-wear fashion. I have always loved the fact that she doesn't follow trends, she just wears what SHE likes.

  4. Our mum has a very relaxed sense of style, and has definitely passed onto us her love of florals! So no surprise we love the floral bag and scarf!

  5. I asked Miss Seven which 'type' of mum I would be. Her suggestion is a lot of 'casual' with a splash of 'eclectic' tossed in, because you always need something purple in your wardrobe!

  6. Casual would be the way to describe mum's style
    She's been wearing clothes for comfort for more than a while
    She prefers flowing skirts to pants or jeans
    And she wouldn't really know what trendy means!
    But I must say, she's always presentable and neat
    And for a woman her age, that is no mean feat!

  7. My Mum looks stylish all the time no matter what she wears, she always looks great as she knows how to mix and match colours and fabrics, i hope i can look like her when i get older.:)

  8. Casual, well maybe a bit too casual. Trackies and gumboots is all she wears on the farm. She's in desperate need of some new clothes. I didn't realize Millers had nice trendy clothes. This would make her Mother's Day special.

  16. My mum's style is classic with a touch of colour, she always adds a pop of colour to all her outfits, be it a pretty scarf, a bright colour handbag, or a statement jewellery. I hate to say it, but my mum is more fashionable than her daughters.

  17. Mum's mantra - Comfort is key! A pair of slacks and a blouse is generally the basis of her wardrobe although she does tend to mix things up with accessories.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Classy (but with edge!) Always dresses to impress but dresses for the situation!! She stands out in the crowd but for all the right reasons! She certainly is my 'go-to' for fashion advice!!

  36. Having had five daughters, Mum left behind an eclectic legacy of pieces she'd accumulated over the years.
    My Mum-in-law, however, is a trend-setter and she'd be an appreciative recipient (as would my father-in-law) of a voucher that would possibly reduce the possibility of her exceeding her credit card limit (THIS month, anyway)!

  38. Though my mum is nearly 85 she loves to keep up with the recent trends, she is defiantly a trendy mum, nanna and great nanna.

  39. My Mums style would be more like trendy because she loves her long dresses and before she goes out she has to have her going out clothes. But she spends more of her money on me and my brothers than herself and then the rest of her money usually goes to bills but she loves long dresses and in winter she loves to wear a nice shirt, with a really nice jacket and jeans or some nice comfy pants is more her style for winter.

  41. Mum has recently started dialysis and spends hours each week hooked up to a machine lying in a hospital bed. She needs very comfortable and cosy clothes that she can lounge around in. She also gets incredibly cold during the treatment so needs very warm things. Id like her to have some nice fashionable comfortable daywear to keep her spirits up during her treatment

  42. Comfortable and cozy, snuggled up with a book and a cup of tea!

  46. Alas, my Mumma has no style,
    not since circa '83,
    her uniform and kmart "bargains"
    are all I ever see!

    I'd love to see her style back,
    she used to set the trend,
    perhaps this little gift for her,
    would bring the tragedy to an end!

  52. Would love to say my mum's style is trendy but she's totally casual... Though definitely not the stylish 'Casual' look shown above, more of a careless and daggy casual. (Sorry mum!). Her wardrobe is crazily outdated, I remember some of the clothes that she still wears today she wore when I was a little kid. My mum definitely needs (and deserves) a Millers makeover! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. She keeps up with the trends, but makes sure it's age appropriate and always looks fantastic!

  54. My Mum is Super hero Casual. With unexpected expenses and Dad's lost his job. Mum never expects anything and rarely ever gets mad. Spending no money on herself and rarely replacing her thread worn favourites. Thank you Millers for placing Mum first. I hope I can win this outfit especially for her.

  55. MY Mum's style is loose tops to cover her stomach and long sleeves to cover her baggy arms. Millers have all of these.

    ReplyDelete
  56. judithperezbejar@gmail.com Classic, since she is always playing with my kids that is the perfect style that she adopts but always stylish and in comfort for hours of giggles and laughs with "abuela"

  57. My mum makes her own clothes but try's to stay trendy. A clothing voucher would be a awesome gift for her. lynndi_lou1@hotmail.com

  58. Mum's always dressed ultra chic,
    Sometimes you’d think she off to Fashion Week,
    Ahead of her times and up to date with trends,
    And you guessed it, she love to spend,
    But she’s always put us as her number one,
    So a present from Flip and Style would say I love you mum!

  59. My mum's style is casual and comfortable. She's a homebody so doesn't get dressed up very often, and when she does it's more a case of adding accessories to dress up a simple outfit. A Miller's voucher would be a great gift for Mother's Day. anastasioulauren@gmail.com

  65. Always elegant - everything perfectly matched - hair done nails done and earrings on - a classic dresser that turns heads

    ReplyDelete
  66. My mum is typically the casual jeans and tee type, however she likes to mix it up with a touch of class and sophistication on special occasions or just if it's been a while since she had the occasion to dress up. However, no matter what she is wearing, she is beautiful inside and out.

  67. Everything about my mum is totally classic... elegant, lifelong quality items make up her wardrobe - sometimes even more-than-one-lifelong as she has some beautiful handbags and jewellery passed down to her from the graceful women of her family. Add to this the glorious handmade knits she whips up like magic every Winter, and my mum is one well-dressed lady! :)

    Thanks for the chance, it's my mum's birthday on Mother's Day this year so she would love this! everbloom36 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  69. My mum's style is casual - and that is her attitude towards life - she is always there to help - When i got cancer, she stepped in and looked after my daughter and I, until i was able to step back up after recovery. My life would not be even half as good without her in it beside me.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Someone once told Mum that black is slimming, so she is now the quintessential Greek Mumma...much to Dad's disappointment...he longs to see her in floaty dresses and bright colours...but I hope he doesn't hold his breath while he waits!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  71. It's classic pieces with accessories,
    That's what males her happy.
    Comfortable and with style,
    She hasn't had a makeover for a while!

    ReplyDelete
  72. My Mum's style is exactly as follows: skinny jeans (the strechy, comfy kind), and a loose-fitting tie dye top with minimal make-up and jewellery - and she rocks it!
