The 9th of May is fast approaching, so it's time to start organising all the wonderful ways to shower your mum (or grandma, auntie, wife, sister, friend) with love this year. Our 2021 Mother's Day Gift Guide is filled with beautiful goodies and experiences to delight and indulge her!
(P.S. Mums – feel free to drop a not-so-subtle hint by forwarding a link or go ahead and scoop up a little something for yourself, too)!
Sweet as Honey
Redfern Raw makes honey from urban beehives right in the heart of our own Redfern community. Their honey is not processed in any way – it is not heat-treated or pasteurised and completely chemical-free. Just 100% pure honey!
Sustainability and conscious cultivation are at the heart of the Redfern Raw Honey business, which means their inner-city bees live free from industrial pesticides widely used in commercial honey farming.
What makes this particular batch extra special? The honey is made from Merchant & Green's poppies! A unique way to support local and a delicious treat to add to mum's daily cup of tea, her morning granola or any other dish that needs a little sweetening up.
We're pretty sure the #1 wish on your mother's list this year is to spend more time together. When you want to break from brunch tradition, quality time doing something creative is where it's at. Book in for one of our upcoming classes in our beautiful new workshop space right on Bourke Street.
Make a custom glass garden in our ever-popular large succulent terrarium workshop, or try your hand at creating an autumn-inspired dried flower arrangement. Our expert team will guide you through every step, and you'll come away with technical skills and the creative confidence to make more designs all on your own!
Book in with a group or opt for a private session with just you and your mum where you can make the day extra special by bringing in your own snacks and drinks!
More Than Skin Deep
Being a mum is a fulfilling job, but it's also demanding, so a fail-safe present involves self-care.
Good skincare goes a long way, and Leif Supply's beautiful, high-performance products help make everyday rituals feel luxe.
Spoil your mum with the refreshing scents of hibiscus, wild rosella, alpine pepper, and Damascan rose courtesy of Leif's "Body Double" limited edition gift pack. The kit comes with a message of love and wears a heart that glows-in-the-dark and includes a reusable drawstring cotton bag.
Pretty & Tasty Treats
Indulge your mum's sweet tooth this year!
Melbourne luxury confectionery company, Bramble & Hedge, specialises in handmade nougat, peanut brittle, chocolate honeycomb and many more delicious treats. Their range of eye-catching goodies makes the perfect gift that is so very impressive.
We think your mum will love the pack of insanely addictive creamy nougat with dark chocolate & sour cherries. Just don't ask her to share!
These stunning, handcrafted homewares made by local ceramicist, Linda Bretherton, are a thoughtful way to spoil your mum while supporting a local artist. Linda studied ceramics at UNSW under the acclaimed artist, Peter Travis. Her work is heavily influenced by her many trips throughout Japan.
Each one of her creations is unique and her functional pieces are all dishwasher and food safe. Shop everything from serving platters to pinch bowls to essential oil burners!
Florals & Foliage
There's nothing quite like a beautiful bunch of flowers to make someone feel loved and appreciated. Start your mum's day right by having a stunning bouquet delivered straight to her doorstep on Mother's Day morning. Get your order in soon, and we can create a completely custom arrangement featuring your mum's favourite flowers for that extra thoughtful, personalised touch.
Is your mum more of a green thumb? Gift her a new potted plant that she can proudly display in her home. We have a massive range of leafy green friends in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and care levels that make them easily customisable to match your mum's personality and lifestyle.
