Raised by a single mum and with 4 boys between us, we strongly believe that Mother’s Day is more than just a Hallmark campaign. Sourcing the perfect gift for mum means paying attention to the things that make her the happiest (other than her beloved children). So to help you pinpoint the perfect gift, our Mother’s Day gift guide this year caters to every kind of mum. Although Mother’s Day looks very different this year, we feel there’s never been a better time to show our mums how much we care.
THE ACTIVE MUM
Knowing what your active mum really enjoys is key to sourcing the perfect gift. While we’re currently experiencing strange and trying times, it’s still important for mum to remain active (even if it’s just a solo walk around the block). For our mum we love the Adidas Originals sneaker in black for its classic looks.
THE STYLISH MUM
For the mum who really has her finger on the pulse with style trends, it can be difficult to find her something that will please her refined and selective (picky) tastes. Nothing says gift rejection like being displayed on the top shelf in the home office that no one uses, so we suggest gifting the ever stylish and coveted Cocolux Brass Candle Gift Set. It’s Australian-made, it’s iconic, it’s divine. Prime placement on entrance hall table is guaranteed! Plus, it’s cleaning burning with a pure cotton wick and 100% recyclable.
THE MUM WHO NEEDS SOME ‘ME TIME’
For the ever eco-conscious mum you can’t go past our al.ive body® Mother’s Day Bundle. Along with your choice of Hand & Body Wash/Lotion Duo, the bundle includes a beautiful Mother’s Day card (in which we will handwrite your custom message) and also a Mud+Gee It’s ‘Me Time’! bath salts sachet. Plus the bundle comes in a beautiful gift box and can be shipped directly to your mum. Plus, for every sale from the al.ive body® range, one tree is planted in Australia; the ultimate gift for your earth-loving mum.
THE TECH SAVVY MUM
If you are blessed enough to have a tech-savvy mum (who doesn’t need help logging on to Facebook every week) she deserves a reward for her digital prowess. Wireless headphones are the gift that keeps on giving for your Apple Music loving mum, and we adore the rose gold Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones for both their function and femininity.
THE ON-THE-GO MUM
This one will come in handy once isolation is over! If your mum loves to get out and about without a huge handbag weighing her down, why not give her a stylish waist bag. The Boucle Waist Bag from Country Road keeps all the essentials front and centre, because mum’s safety and security is paramount while she’s able to get out and about again.
THE ARTY MUM
There are lots of great gift ideas for the art loving mum. Brand new quality art supplies or even attending an arts event with mum at the local gallery will go a long way towards filling her creative cup.
If mum’s Derwent pencils have been whittled down to stubs during isolation, a gift voucher to online store Art to Art will surely make her Mother’s Day colourful.
THE HYDRATED MUM
If your mum is anything like us, she’s a fan of anything monogrammed! Apart from looking stylish, it helps make sure no one else is using our things! In these times where hygiene is so important, we think mum will love this Monogrammed Water Bottle. Made from durable stainless steel, this double-walled, insulated bottle maintains a steady temperature and can keep liquid hot or cold for up to 6 hours.
MUM THE CHEF
Mum the chef probably already has all the kitchen tools she needs, so why not gift her some fabulous condiments from bush fire affected regions around Australia (and add to that well stocked pantry). We love the Farm selection tray from Beerenberg in the Adelaide Hills or a collection of infused olive oils from Kangaroo Island Online. If you’re lucky she’ll whip up some deliciousness for you.
THE RELAXED MUM
Since we’re all spending a lot more time lounging around the house these days, why not let mum do it in style! We love this Floral Kimono Robe in pure Indian cotton voile. Beautifully tailored and ethically made in India, it comes with a matching lingerie bag and ships for free from Foundling in Byron Bay.
Best of all, all of these gifts can be delivered directly to your mum, for those of us stuck in isolation at this time. We hope your mum enjoys her day despite these trying times.
