Mother's Day Gift Guide

Published 26 Apr, 2023

Set Mom up for beachtime with a pair of our super-soft Women’s Boardshorts. A staple beachwear piece in Australia, “boardies’’ are the versatile quick-dry shorts to wear over a one-piece swim suit or with your favorite bikini. They offer extra coverage for prolonged time in the water, so they’re perfect for water sports or just paddling with little ones in the shallows. Plus they’re so easy to pull on when you’re heading to a beachside café or taking a walk along the shore. For sporty moms or resort-y moms, treat her to some Tom & Teddies this Mother’s Day, and check out how we’d style them with our gift guide, packed with beach-inspired treats for her next escape to the sun!
