2020 will be a year to remember for so many reasons. Everyday life, socialising and celebrations look completely different to how they were just a few months ago.
Mother's Day is one of the first tests of these new conditions we live under, but it's still possible to shower your Mum with love this year.
Here's a collection of Mother's Day gifts from Australian-owned businesses (mostly run by women!) who have something special for all kinds of Mums.
For the practical Mum
So many Mums seem to have EVERYTHING you could need on them at any point in time, Mary Poppins Bag Style. If your Mum could do with something a little more aesthetically pleasing to carry her things (and super comfy on the shoulders!) then this bag is the one she needs.
My favourite is the Isla, which has a timeless striped print that looks fab with any outfit.
Gorgeous sunglasses made from sustainable wood and planting a tree in Western Australia for every pair sold.
Pictured here are the Stevie sunglasses which are *chef kiss fingers*
For the Mum who needs a drink, dammit
If Mum is a gin fan, why not gift her a gin subscription? She'll get to try a new gin (monthly or bi-monthly) made in Australia and sourced by gin lovers.
Support woman-winemaker, Nicole Samodol, who founded Rowlee Wines in 2013 in Orange. She makes wines from a single vineyard, specialising in cool climate wines including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.
For the Mum who deserves something beautiful
If Mum is in need of something shiny and beautiful, look no further than the handcrafted jewellery at Elle Maree Jewellery.
My pick is the Hailee bracelet - a delicate and simple piece, perfect for everyday wear.
Give her a bit of everything with the lovely hampers from Harry Hoot. Run by a Mum in Brisbane, every product is sourced from businesses who are passionate about treating Mums (and soon-to-be Mums!) to beautiful goods thoughtfully packaged. Delivery is available Australia-wide.
My selection would be the "Rejuvenate with Scents of Champagne + Strawberries" (pictured), but dig a little deeper and you'll find gifts just for new mums and hampers just for mums-to-be!
Mum deserves something beautiful, and what's more beautiful than YOU?
A voucher for a family portrait session is something she will treasure for a long time to come. Spend some time together to create great memories at one moment in time and be rewarded with lovely photos of the people you love most.
Social distancing means there aren't any sessions happening right now, but get your voucher here and start prepping to be Mum's favourite.
Flower delivery, on the reg. Let Mum unleash her inner florist with a subscription to a regular flower delivery.
Beautiful seasonal flowers can be gifted simply here, and I guarantee she'll think of you with every single delivery.
For the Mum with style
This brand is ethically made with 30 day returns and shipping worldwide.
For the Mum who loves to read
If Mum loves to take some downtime with a book in her hand, why not try a book subscription?

For the mum who's all about wellbeing
Potent tea sourced from Greece and named after the goddess of the rising sun. Catherine and Neil Thompson bring naturally caffeine free tea with no additives, chemicals or artificial ingredients in loose leaf form.
GIft beautifully natural skin care made by hand in Melbourne.
Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, caffeine free and refined sugar free, you'll never guess these sweet treats aren't chocolate.
My pick is the jar of Polka Dots.
For the Mum who deserves everything
Mums can be hard to shop for.
When in doubt, candles.
