Stumped by what to buy Mum this year? These gifts are guaranteed crowd-pleasers.

Mother’s Day provides a unique gift-giving challenge every year. We want to give something thoughtful but not corny, usable but not too practical, luxurious but not bank-breaking. For those who are time poor, the joy of giving a thoughtful present can be undermined by the stress of choosing it. On that front, we’re here to help.

We’ve curated our bestselling Mother’s Day gifts from David Jones stores around the country, to bring you this edit of 10 guaranteed-to-please options, from cult-following beauty buys to non-naff candles. Consider this your stress-free guide to earning favourite-child status come May 12.

Plus, for bonus points, take advantage of David Jones’ luxurious gift wrapping service, available in stores around the country until Mother’s Day.
