The Gift of Love: For The Ones We Call Mum

Look past the perfume, flowers and chocolates usually given to mum on Mother’s day and instead find a unique, sustainable gift that shows she cares about the earth, herself and the future.

Do you have an outdoorsy mum, the kind who loves to potter in her garden and feel the sun on her face? Perhaps, she’s the type that appreciates a quiet moment, to sit with a cup of tea and a flickering candle? Does she like to indulge in a little self-care with premium beauty products? Or, maybe your mum is the creative kind, the type that likes to spend her time drawing, creating stories or baking?

Either way, this Mother’s Day is your chance to show your mum you love and appreciate the role she plays in your life.

While it may be easy to dismiss the annual event as a commercial campaign, it actually has its origins in peace. In Australia, Mother's Day caught on during the 1920s. Today, it remains an important date on our calendar, an occasion that brings families together and allows us to reflect on the importance of mothers and mother-figures in our families and communities.

Of course these important women in our lives deserve a gift that shows them how much they mean to us, after all, not all mothers are the perfume, flowers and chocolate types. And it is nice when it shows you’ve put in genuine thought to the kind of person she is and the things she enjoys doing.

We’ve rounded up seven very special Mother’s Day gift ideas that will tell your mum how much you love her.
