We all love our Mums and with good reason – they love and care about us more than they do themselves and they do so much for all of us!
Being a Mum is both challenging and rewarding and each stage brings with it so much learning, pride, fear, joy, doubt, sleepless nights and a whole roller-coaster of emotions. Mother’s Day gives us all the chance to stop and say THANK YOU to our beautiful Mums and to make them feel appreciated and loved for all that they do.
This year has brought with it a fair share of challenges and interesting times (to say the least) and life is certainly quite different. Whether you live with Mum, or stuck in Iso and missing her to bits – we can help you find the perfect gift which will be sure to bring a smile to her face and let her know you’re thinking of her – here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
Is she sporty? Does she like to Hike or Cycle?
Then these are a really cool, eco-friendly zero waste option to keep her hydrated, looking cool and feeling fresh – check out these amazing 24 bottles fully insulated, sweat-proof drink bottles and the matching Porta-Bottiglia carriers which can easily be attached to either bike or backpack for easy access to her drink bottle while she is out and about! Stylish Italian design with the practicality of every-day use – these are sure to put a smile on her face!
Is she into stretching, exercise and yoga?
Here’s an extra special treat – we stock these gorgeous I Am That Yoga mats which come in both Luxury (super soft and plush) and Travel (thinner and lighter, though still comfy!) sizes. Both made of natural rubber and cork – they have anti-slip and anti-sweat/bacteria properties and are sssooo soft and bouncy to make each practice as comfortable as can be – you can literally use these on concrete and be at ease… What makes them even more incredible is the gorgeous design printed on each mat which is not only eye-catching but the clever alignment lines will help Mum to practice her Yoga stretches in a safer manner. Pair it up with some fun Doda Yoga cards for a bit of a laugh!
Does she love a cheeky wine at a picnic or outdoor festival?
Well our friends at Winestains have come up with a great solution – wine glass holders made from 100% recycled oak wine barrels – each is unique with it’s own markings; each is lovingly handmade and we have these in 3 options: Single (holds one stemmed wine glass), double (holds 2 stemmed wine glasses) and travel (which you can pull apart and store flat and when assembled also holds 2 stemmed wine glasses) – this way Mum can be hands-free at your next picnic in the great outdoors, without spilling her wine – win-win!
Does she love a little pampering?
We stock an amazing range of Clémence Organics beauty products which are literally a real treat! All carefully made with organic ingredients and balanced to perfection, they will help Mum’s skin glow and bring the spa experience home with their long-lasting effects. Visit the range and pop a few together to make an incredible pamper pack for her. Why not try the refining cleanser with a luxuriously soft bamboo face washer and the divine Ultimate Face Cream for a complete cleansing experience for example?
Does she love a good mani/pedi?
Let’s face it, having hot looking nails is like adding the finishing touch to any outfit, though with the never-ending list of chemical ingredients commonly found in so many nail polishes out there we sometimes question what we are putting on the tips of our fingers and toes – the great news is that our friends at Hanami have released this incredible range of ‘TEN FREE’ nail polishes which are not only breathable and water permeable, they are also free of the top ten nasty chemicals commonly found in most commercially available nail varnishes out there – we have a great range of gorgeous colours available as well as a couple of kits to help you choose – check out the range here.
Is Mum an eco-warrior with a touch of style?
Then she will love this new Ever Eco Rose Gold Safety Razor (which comes with ten replacement blades). An absolute stunner in the bathroom it will definitely help Mum to reduce her footprint by saying goodbye to plastic/disposable razors for good! Pair it up with a shaving soap bar* and she will be making a big impact on reducing waste in the bathroom. *Receive a free bamboo soap holder with any soap bar purchase!
Zero waste Queen meets Corporate sleek?
OMG – these ‘Crunch boxes’ by Seed & Sprout are as pretty as they are functional. Zero plastic used and perfectly designed to fit a healthy lunch full of variety and Mum will not only be doing her bit for the planet and keeping healthy, but she will definitely be the envy of the office when she pulls out her gorgeous shiny Crunch box! Pair it up with a matching insulated Minimal Hemp Fibre Crunch Case to keep things extra cool!
Is she a bit of a self-confessed catering queen?
We have these gorgeous platters available from our friends at Winestains, each uniquely hand-crafted in the Barossa Valley of South Australia from recycled red-wine Oak barrels. They make a striking addition to any table and are great for serving up anything from an impressive antipasto/cheese platter to a range of fresh assorted pastries to simply looking striking as a gorgeous fruit platter. We have two sizes available: The Share Platter and The Large Fruit Bowl – we also have matching tea-light candle holders to add an extra little bit of sparkle.
Does she love to fill the house with deliciously scented candles?
We have a great range of scented candles available to suit all tastes and highly recommend the Velvety natural soy wax candles which are not only deliciously scented but so pretty as well – hand-poured in Victoria, they are vegan friendly, eco-friendly, lead-free and leave a divine scent as you burn them – pair them up with a gorgeous wick trimmer for a special gift idea.
Does she love to have a collection of earrings to top off her outfits?
We have these really cute drop earrings by Myrtle and Me – beautifully handcrafted in Tasmania and depicting a range of originally photographic artwork by local artist Jocelyn Parry-Jones. All made with stainless steel, glass and recycled sterling silver hooks – they come in an array of different designs and colours – one for every outfit?! We also have a set of matching gift cards for that extra bit of attention to detail. The hardest part if choosing which you think she will prefer!
So there you have it – a few awesome options for you to think about – we also have plenty of other gift ideas on our website including tempting microgreen/herb windowsill growing kits, gorgeous linen tea towels, body brushes and more – you could put together your own ideas. Just remember to let us know if this is a gift when checking out, so that we can make sure we wrap it up even more beautifully to really surprise and delight your Mum!
