Does your mum do that thing where when you ask her what she wants for Mother’s Day (slash birthday, Christmas etc.) she says “nothing darling, I’m just happy to spend the day with you”? Cool ma, but no. Just allow us to shower you in gifts that will never be equal to the fact that you birthed us out of your body.
So, friends. Here’s a list of local goodies we encourage you to purchase for your Mama and maybe get one of everything just to be sure she understands your appreciation.
The Balance Bundle
Alliteration is one of our favourite things, second only perhaps to organic, sustainable goodies that will make you both smell and feel excellent. Which is PERFECT because The Balance Bundle is a delightful little gift box Mum’s gonna love. It’s a self-love bundle for women full of beautiful products for hormonal health and balance. There’s tea from Byron brand Mayde Tea, bath salts from Cedar & Stone, chocolate, all the pretty things. Probs get yourself one too.
If locally made ceramics haven’t changed your life yet, allow us to drain your wallet quick smart. One such brand of absolute ceramic gold is Grit Ceramics who create the prettiest of plates, keep cups, bowls etc. in all your favourite Autumn hues (think navy, grey and turquoise). The brand draws its name from the properties of the word grit which means particles of stone or sand, courage and passion for long-term goals. That floats our boat and probably your Mum’s too.
Hello lovely threads made by hand with the softest of linen and cotton. These simple, luxe pieces are the perfect gift for the Mum who has it all. Think flowing dresses, button up shirts and flattering wrap dresses that suit every shape. The local brand is somewhat of a newbie but everything they create is delightful and you may as well get yourself something while you’re at it because you gotta pay for shipping either way.
Bower the Label
Bold, statement jewellery made with stunning semi precious stones is a must for adorning the fingers of your lady love. Made by local lad Luke Feeney, Bower the Label is inspired by his love of the earth and came about when he wanted to make his partner something special. Which he did and hooray, you can too. If you’re keen to buy Mum something that will last the test of time (and perhaps her patience with you) look no further.
It would seem that essential oils have taken over the world and for good reason. Those are some powerful, delightfully scented things y’all. Mixed into these magical potions by Auric Alchemy, they are certain to bring your Ma balance, calm and peace. Which is all one could ever really want for, is it not? From Clarity to Zen and Heart, the sprays are a lovely gift Mum can carry around in her handbag for when life gets the opposite of balanced, calm and peaceful.
Comfort and Calm
Oh the classic candle. What woman in the world doesn’t already have 57 in her house and a need for many, many more? Comfort and Calm boast a beautiful range of handcrafted candles in scents like Island Living (yes please) and Zest for Life (double yes please). Best. Gift. Ever. They also make the ceramics too so add a few of those to your cart why don’t ya.
Happy shopping favourite children.
