Mother’s day is only a few weeks away, so now is the perfect time to get online and sort out your gifts – or send some of these links to your gorgeous children as ideas as to what they can buy for you!

These super comfy Suzie ponte jogger pant from Styling You The Label are made in Australia and are only back in stock today, so if you want to grab a pair of these you better be quick! They sold out in 2020 and 2021. The cut looks amazing on the leg and sits beautifully across the tummy.
I love Lulelemon tights and have this pair on my wishlist for Mother’s Day! These are the Fast and Free High-Rise Tight 25″ and what I love about them is they have loads of pockets – two side drop-in pockets (which fit your phone) and five waistband pockets. The tighter waistband and continuous drawcord help keep your leggings in place so you don’t have to pull them up mid-run. Perfect Mother’s Day gift idea for the running mum.
Ana Maria-Unisex Woollen Adult Beanies – the story of Ana who makes these beanies is truly inspiring. You can read it on the product page of the Sisterworks website. SisterWorks is a not-for-profit social enterprise, based in Melbourne. Through work and entrepreneurship, our mission is to support women who are refugees, asylum seekers or migrants to improve their confidence, mental well-being, sense of belonging and economic outlook. With this gift idea you get a wonderful gift and to help other women.
Multicolour Organic 3 Tier Earrings – gorgeous one of a kind polymer clay earrings. They have nickel free fastenings and are lovingly hand-made in Melbourne & Ballarat. Earrings are a great mother’s day gift idea. EDIT: It looks like those exact ones are now sold out but you can see the whole range from Made by Masie here.
The Space Between the Stars – On love, loss and the magical power of nature to heal – by Indira Naidoo – is a heart-rending, at times funny, and uplifting tribute to love and our innate need to connect to the natural world, a celebration of the reassuring cycle of renewal that sustains and nourishes us all. If you purchase from Booktopia at the moment you can get a signed copy by Indira Naidoo while stocks last.
I Didn’t Do The Thing Today – On letting go of productivity guilt – By: Madeleine Dore – I am yet to read this book but I love Madeline’s podcast Routines & Ruts. After five years of searching for the secret to productivity, Madeleine Dore discovered there isn’t one-instead, we’re being set up to fail. I Didn’t Do the Thing Today is an inspiring call to take productivity off its pedestal, to embrace the joyful messiness and unpredictability of life.
Phosphorescence – On Awe, Wonder And Things That Sustain You When The World Goes Dark By: Julia Baird – I adore this book and have read it multiple times and have gifted it to friends. The author is asking the questions “when our world goes dark, when we’re overwhelmed by illness or heartbreak, loss or pain, how do we survive, stay alive or even bloom?”. Highly recommend.
Happy Boxes Project – I am a supporter of the wonderful Happy Boxes Project. A Happy Box is a collection of toiletries and beauty products put together with care, and sent to an Indigenous woman in a remote community. If you don’t want to put one together yourself for less than 50c a day, you can donate a Juuni Happy Box and it will be sent directly to a remote Indigenous community throughout the Northern Territory and Western Australia. This is the perfect mother’s day gift for the mum that has everything and wants to help other women.
Double Impact Box – Mettle x Global Sisters Ltd Ed.– I adore the Mettle gift boxes. Mettle Women Inc. (Mettle) is a national gift delivery service employing women who are experiencing homelessness due to domestic and family violence – so another Mother’s Day gift idea that helps others. They have a beautiful range of boxes, this gift box contains:
- Warndu – Wattleseed Balsamic Vinegar 250ml
- Memory Box – Handmade ceramic salt & pepper pinch pots
- The Gut Shoppe – Sesame salt 200ml
- Made by Mettle – Neroli & lavender room spray
- Made by Mettle – Cedarwood & clove leaf soy candle

The character notes include orange blossom, cotton candy, ginger, clary sage, tangerine, mimosa, stonefruit, pink pepper and burnt fig.

I have only just come across Bush Medijina® and their story is amazing and one worth supporting. “We run our business from a few shipping containers in Angurugu which is on our remote island in the Northern Territory. It is a humble set up, but we feel safe here. We hand harvest botanicals from our country, take them back to The Shed and hand make and package everything ourselves.”
Pictured above is their Mababurna (Big Mob) gift set which comes beautifully packaged featuring all of their hero products from their most lush body butter, balms, hair oil, face mask, body scrub and soap. Perfect gift idea for the mum that needs some pampering.
100% Pure Lip Caramel – Combining a lip-softening base of Cocoa Butter and Pomegranate Seed Oil with natural colour derived from fruit, root and achiote (annatto) seed pigments, including Raspberry and Blueberry, these 100% Pure Lip Caramels glide on smoothly like a gloss and dries to a long-lasting satin to gloss finish. They have a delicious, natural scent and gives lips a beautiful shine.

Gormon Painted Blocks Cotton Canvas Apron – this gorgeous apron is a great Mother’s Day gift idea for the mum that loves to cook. It features front patch pocket measuring 18cm. The body of apron measures 84cm h x 62cm w and it features Gorman exclusive print.
Languages Of Love Generous Cup And Saucer Quality Time – this super cute cup and saucer is made of fine bone china with hand-applied gold detailing and adorned with sweet sayings. Perfect for the tea drinker mum in your life.
Brynn & Co. Embroidery Kit – Faded Sun – the pattern is pre-printed for guidance and features minimalistic branches and colours. It comes with an instructional booklet including a colour, visual stitch guide and paper copy of the pattern.
Vertical garden – I love this asymmetric design which is big enough to hold six terracotta pots. The frame is made from 10mm thick mild steel square bar which is MIG welded together by an Australian-based boilermaker. An excellent Mother’s Day gift idea for the plant-loving mum.
Entryway Organiser (All In One) – this wooden entryway organiser is such a great storage solution regardless of the amount of space you have. It has a mail holder, magnetic key holder, coat rack and display shelf. The shelf has space for you to decorate or you can use this space for your other things such as sunglasses/glasses, cameras, phone or other tech gadgets.
Love Always Wall Art Print – you can choose the size of the print and whether or not you want the print framed and in a black or white frame. A meaningful gift to give to mum this mother’s day.
