Best Australia Online Gift Cards & Vouchers For Mum

Share

As much as we want to be organised when it comes to gifting season or a special occasion, life often gets the best of us and we’re left scrambling for time to find the perfect gift for a sister, friend, wife, or mother.

Although gift vouchers might once have been considered inconsiderate and unimpressive, many mums these days actually prefer to receive gift cards rather than a product that they have to return or exchange.

When you think about it, a gift card is really a win-win situation – you don’t need to fret over choosing the perfect gift, and the recipient is 100% guaranteed to end up with something that she actually wants because she has full control over what she buys.

I’ve put together a gift guide of the best online stores in Australia offering gift cards and vouchers for products or services that both new and seasoned mums will love and enjoy.

ECO HOME & LIVING

Biome

Beautiful in-store experiences and eco workshops

Their vouchers can be used towards their DIY workshops like making natural skincare and hair care products from scratch. The workshops are hosted in Brisbane and Gold Coast.

Scandinavian furniture and home decor for Australian families

With its humble beginnings in New Zealand, Mocka has been based in Australia since 2012, bringing exclusively designed Scandi-inspired furniture to Aussies and Kiwis.

SHOES & APPAREL

Cotton On

One gift card, seven brands – the most versatile fashion & lifestyle gift card in Australia

Few people are aware that the Cotton On Group consists of some of Australia’s most loved fashion and lifestyle brands, like Typo, rubi shoes, Supre, and Cotton On Kids.

When you give someone a Cotton On gift card, they can redeem it at any of the stores under the Cotton On Group, both online and in-store. Best of all, it has no expiry date attached and you can personalise it with your own message.

Seed Heritage

Timeless Australian designed fashion from newborn to womanhood

This high-end iconic Australian brand began in 2000 as a children’s boutique store in Armadale, Victoria. Now, with more than 200 stores globally, its collections include apparel, shoes, accessories, toys and more, from birth to mature womanhood.

With a focus on sustainability, Seed Heritage uses natural fabrics and minimalistic designs for its products. They are the perfect, sophisticated balance between style, eco-friendliness, and comfort.


MATERNITY WEAR

Cake Maternity

Australian eco-friendly maternity wear brand with a mission for social impact

A lesser-known Aussie maternity brand with a global footprint, Cake Maternity focuses on sustainable and ethical production of their collections. They also partner with women-centred charities to empower young girls and women around the world.

The best thing about them is their generous 45-days return policy, so you can buy with full assurance.

St Frock

Wide range of stylish, affordable maternity wear with free shipping

There’s one distinguishing fact about St Frock – they are first and foremost a women’s fashion store and they just happen to have a collection of stylish, high-quality tops and dresses that are also pregnancy and breastfeeding-friendly.

This means that you’re more likely to find unique maternity wear that doesn’t actually look like maternity wear. They clearly have a keen eye for general fashion pieces that can accommodate a bump, or has a front opening that also functions as nursing access.

Queen Bee Maternity

Australia’s biggest & most affordable online maternity wear retailer

Queen Bee is practically synonymous with “maternity wear” here in Australia. Having served Aussie mums since 2005, it is now one of the most established and largest online stores for all your motherhood needs.

Despite its big online presence, they are actually a family-owned business with a small team, so you can rest assured you’re getting the most personable customer service.


BOOKS, STATIONERY, CRAFTS

Dymocks

Leading Australian bookseller – books, stationery, toys & more

If you know a stationery lover or someone who loves getting lost wandering in bookstores, they’ll be no stranger to Dymocks, first opened in Sydney in 1879.

For those with kids, you’ll be delighted to know that Dymocks also has an exclusive Wiggles collection including books, apparel, tableware and more.

Hobbycraft

The largest selection of international craft brands with express delivery to Australia

Although based in the UK and not an Australian store, Hobbycraft ships worldwide and stocks an impressive range of brands and products for every imaginable craft, from paper to digital.

For someone who might be interested in finding a new hobby, they have a great selection of craft kits. They even have cardboard playhouses that kids will enjoy colouring in and decorating.

The team behind Hobbycraft also publishes beautiful and inspiring DIY craft tutorials, showing just how much they know their stuff and their passion for crafts.


FOOD & DRINKS

Cudo

Enjoy award-winning cuisine around Australia at up to 60% off

Cudo is my not-so-secret guilty pleasure, its dining section offers a wide selection of local eateries and restaurants, from cafe brekkie experiences to fine dining.

The buffets or degustation courses are an affordable way to explore new places or plan a date to catch up with friends or family. You can check the date availability for the voucher BEFORE you purchase and you can book directly within Cudo once you’ve bought the voucher.

T2

Excite and inspire a tea-drinker with a gift card so she can go crazy with shopping for her next tea adventure.

Koko Black

Amidst the myriad of chocolatiers in Australia, Koko Black stands out from the crowd with its chic and minimalistic packaging – perfect for gifting – and their mouth-watering chocolate recipes.

GENERAL STORES

Amazon Australia

Thousands of international & local brands available at your fingertips

Amazon AU launched in Dec 2017 and is a giant online marketplace that rivals eBay with some clear competitive advantages (read my comparison of Amazon vs eBay).

If you’ve never tried Amazon, you’ll be amazed to see how many international and local brands they offer. An Amazon Prime member also gets free express shipping and 15% off baby essentials like nappies, baby wipes, and baby food with the “Subscribe & Save” offer.

Kogan

Australia’s biggest online department store

Thanks to its reward program with Qantas, Kogan has quickly grown to become one of Australia’s largest online retailer with a massive range of everyday products.

They’ve also launched an exclusive members-only program called Kogan First. Very much like Amazon Prime, you get free express shipping on all orders and exclusive discount.

Gift Card Store

Prepaid Mastercard or VISA cash cards with express delivery across Australia

The name itself is self-explanatory, Gift Card Store specialises in physical prepaid cash cards. These cards can be used online or in-store anywhere that accepts Mastercard and VISA.

There’s no expiry date attached and because it’s not a credit card it doesn’t affect anyone’s credit rating. There is also no risk of spending over the limit because once the funds in the card are used up, the card essentially becomes useless.

They have a large selection of pre-designed cards you can choose from, or you can design your own.

If you want something fast, you can order a digital gift card instead, which will be emailed to your recipient the same day. Note that digital cards can only be used online and not in-store.
