MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

A day to celebrate our first love. Our mother’s deserve the world and there’s nothing like putting a smile on her face with a thoughtful gift and quality time.

We’ve rounded up some awesome items to show her just how much you care. Take a look at our gift guide below:

Baked Collection Mother’s Day Gift Box

Baked Collection has put together the most beautifully curated gift box set featuring some amazing local brands. Spoil your mom with a luxury Baked Collection satin silk scarf, 1701 salted caramel nougat, a scented candle and luxury diffuser from Pink Perppercorn and Tonka bean, and Avene thermal mineral water spray, amongst other goodies – all included in the gift set. Choose between the large and small gift box for your preference.

Cute and Comfortable

Winter’s rolling around and Poetry stores has some locally-made quality garments that are comfortable and stylish. Perfect for layering in trans-seasonal weather, and they’ll last a lifetime.

Sweet Treat

There’s nothing like saying ‘I love you’ than with a box of chocolates. A box of yummy Lindt truffles always does the trick – and they have some beautifully packed gifts and hampers.

Shiny Objects

Sometimes less is more. For your mother, why not gift her something simple and elegant, yet packed with meaning?

Yellow Jewellery has some beautiful hand-crafted statement pieces, while Pichulik makes use of organic, natural fibers – and they’ve just launched their new collection.

Signature Scent

We love Jo Malone’s floral fragrances. Their Yellow Hibiscus Cologne is zesty and refreshing while the Nectarine Blossom and Honey Body Mist is sweet and warm. A subtle yet memorable scent for everyday wear.

Shower her with Flowers

Flowers just make everything better. We just can’t get enough of Fleur Le Cordeur’s intricate arrangements or the colourful ‘everlasting’ bouquets from Periwinkle Flowers.

Time for Tea

Every mom needs a relaxing cuppa’. Carmien tea’s delicious infused teas come in flavours such as Creamy Mint, Turkish Delight, Tropical Burst and Orange Caramel. They also have some amazing Mother’s Day gift sets for a luxurious tea time gift.

Baked Collection

Baked Collection’s stylish yet versatile AURA Collection is perfect for busy mom’s on-the-go. Try the Dreamcatcher pants and matching jacket for a sophisticated all-day look, or the playful Spellbound dress for a pop of colour. 

Mothers Day Gifting In The Time Of Covid19

Being a mother is my greatest joy and blessing, since I’ve become a mother celebrating that fact has been something I am both proud and excited about! In the time of covid19 I think it’s more fitting than ever to celebrate the people in our lives who make us feel loved, cherished and valued. For a lot of us that is our mothers. 
Not being able to physically see your mom this Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be as sad as it sounds, set up a little digital Mother’s Day brunch, or evening tea if you’re fasting like me, and take the time to exchange gifts, connect and show your mother how much you love her. 
This Mother’s Day is a little different since we are bound to our homes with lockdown, and as mothers we are probably feeling a little worse for wear right now with everything we are taking on, from being a private chef, tutor and full time caregiver being a mom in lockdown is an epic feat. This is the reason I want to encourage you to spoil the mothers in your life with a little something to keep them going. Usually I would suggest a spa day or tea date with mom but this time we are going to do things a little differently. 

I recently shared a self care routine that involved lighting some scented candles and choosing to convert your shower routine into a self indulging spa treatment including body scrubs, face masks and a massage – all of which you can give yourself! Instead of getting down on myself about all the things I need to do I decided to dedicate one day a week (or every second week) to indulging in an hour of me time in every mothers favorite escape room (the bathroom). You can find the full routine in my Instagram post attached. My advice for Mother’s Day gifting this year would be avoiding the usual shopping malls and spending your time shopping online. You can get small meaningful gifts like scented candles, cozy slippers or the perfect stay-at-home tracksuit. I would suggest treating the special lady in your life to a little care package from Superbalist including some of my favorite skincare items that can transform a regular shower into something of her spa dreams. 
If your mother is a little bit more independent and prefers choosing her own gift you can buy her one of these adorable online shopping vouchers from Superbalist too! That way she can spend her voucher on what she likes and get a little retail therapy. 

Our new normal has forced us into celebrating things a little bit differently this year but let’s not get discouraged from showing those we love, and miss, just how much we care about them.

Happy Mother’s Day!
