What to get your mum for Mother's Day

What to get your mum for Mother's Day

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

The Friday People 

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.

Archer Eyewear

Gorgeous sunglasses made from sustainable wood and planting a tree in Western Australia for every pair sold.

For the Mum who needs a drink, dammit

The Gin Birds

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.

Rowlee Wines

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.

Keep wine on hand for mum with a subscription to the Wine Club or send her a one-off via their online store.

For the Mum who deserves something beautiful

Elle Maree Jewellery

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.

Harry Hoot

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!

Uber Photography

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.

Beautiful seasonal flowers can be gifted simply here, and I guarantee she'll think of you with every single delivery.
