Christmas gift ideas for Mums!

I don't know about you guys but my Mum is so cool and fashion-forward I really can't compete.  She owns about 45 pairs of limited edition Melissa shoes and buys all her furniture from Industria on Gertrude st.  By comparison I am downright dorky.

The good thing about Mums though - is that no matter how cool they are, they will pretty much like anything you buy them for Christmas.  As long as you're thoughtful and generous and make an effort, they'll open your present with enthusiasm and say they love it and display it proudly.  Mums are awesome aren't they!?

Here are just a few fabulous Christmas gift ideas for the most important woman in your life!   You should totally spoil her this year...  you know she deserves it :)
