If there’s anyone you better not forget to buy a present for, it’s your mum. I know she’ll probably understand if there’s nothing from you under the tree come Christmas day (of course she will), but do you really want to be that kid? Nope, didn’t think so.
If your mum’s a domestic goddess, she’ll love one of these two MasterChef-related items: either season one runner-up Poh Ling Yeow’s cookbook Poh’s Kitchen ($28) or MasterChef Masterclass: Season Two ($29.95) on DVD. But just because she loves the kitchen, it doesn’t mean she needs to be cooking all the time, right? In that case give her Julie & Julia ($24.95) on DVD — it’s definitely one you can watch together.
Is she an entertainment junkie or a fan of the arts? Then you can’t really go wrong with either of these picks: Bran Nue Dae ($34.95), one of the most feel-good Aussie flicks we’ve come across for a while, or Judi Dench’s autobiography And Furthermore ($33.75). And I’m sure she’ll love some musical company for when she’s driving around or just chilling at home — our recommendations are Keith Urban’s Get Closer ($19.60) or Human Nature’s Songs From Sin City ($19.60).
