A gift could never truly express just how much we love our mums, but these will at least get the ball rolling. Make sure the mums in your life feel special the first weekend of May with some of our favourite Perth prezzies, with plenty available online if you’re pressed for time.
Small Batch Gift Co.
She’s not just a regular mum, she’s a cool mum! That’s why she deserves the coolest, most curated gift box. If she’s a fiend for the cocktails, grab her a couple of Everleigh cocktails and Bahen choccies (the perfect pairing, if you ask us). Or go big with the gin and tonic box, which has a bottle of Patient Wolf gin, Strange Love mixers, plus handcrafted leather coasters and the perfect WA blackbutt chopping board. For non-drinkers, they’ve also got brekkie boxes with WA-made granola, tea and ceramics, or a tea time box with locally made tea cups and Perth’s own Antipotea.
Mum’s got a sweet tooth? Hook her up with a box of luxury treats from Ox Rabbit. These decadent brownies, cookies and cakes will satisfy even the most sugar-loving mamas, with goodies like Biscoff Cookie Butter Brownie Slab, Nutella Fat Cookies, or even a Signature Cake for a bit of wow factor.
Haven’t quite satiated that sweet tooth? Never fear, Honeycake is here. This many-layered, nutty treat will brighten any mum’s day, but you can always earn extra favourite child points by upgrading to the All Local Hamper, which has not only a box of signature Honeycake included, but luxe Sue Lewis chocolates, a Teassential tea tube, and a hand-poured vanilla caramel soy candle by Ruby Lights. Pick up your Honeycake from one of their stores, or take advantage of the free postage available across select suburbs.
Ryan & Co. Candlemakers
Give your mum an excuse to unwind with a candle from Ryan & Co. Designed to evoke the stunning landscapes and botanicals of the Great Southern and Southwest, scents include Evenings in Margaret River (lemon, eucalyptus, sandalwood, jasmine), Geographe Breeze (lemon, jasmine, sage, mint), or Southern Ocean (green tea, sea salt, lemongrass). If that wasn’t enticing enough, the 100% soy wax candles are poured in hand cut, repurposed wine and beer bottles. Eco-friendly and stylish!
Hass & Co. Botanics
If your mum has a green thumb, why not add to her collection with a new leafy friend from Hass & Co.? They’ve got indoor plants available at every budget, starting at $12 for a small devils ivy and going all the way up to their XXL Rhapis excelsa palm at $350, with plenty of options in between. Make sure you complete the gift with a super-cool planter made by Capra Designs, Mr Kitly, or Angus & Celeste.
Feeling a bit… lost? Sometimes it’s overwhelming, trying to figure out the best way to show your mum you love and appreciate her. Thankfully, Ginger B have you more than covered, with a whole category of gift hampers devoted to Mothers Day, so you’ll be sorted in just a few clicks. Your mum will be feeling spoiled with their Pamper Hamper, which contains a lush selection of Salus body care, a Purist bath soak and candle, plus some loose leaf tea and Rocky Road to complete the experience. If she’s a bit of a gourmand, she’ll be all over the Say Cheese hamper, which has all the accoutrements needed to take her cheese board game to the next level. We haven’t even got into the Champagne & Roses or Hot Chocolate Hug options!
Republic Of Fremantle Gin + Bloom Box
We were already pretty jazzed about Republic Of Fremantle’s long-anticipated opening, but our excitement levels went through the roof when we saw their special Mothers Day offering. The Gin + Bloom Box contains a bottle of their classic Full Bodied Gin, plus a preserved bunch of blooms from Floral Army (one of our florist faves). Hand delivered by Republic Of Fremantle with a personalised gift card, it’s the perfect excuse to share a G&T with your Ma.
Little Shop Of Happiness
The folks at Little Shop Of Happiness are determined to spread joy, one smile at a time. Their boxes are normally an explosion of colour, but they’ve taken things to the next level with their special Mother’s Day offering. The limited edition box includes a selection of treats and gifts designed to brighten your mum’s day, like Happy Glow bath salts, a Happy Mandala throw, tote bag, chocolates, luxury candle and heaps more.
Matthew Landers’ MATRIARCH
Perth-based celebrity florist Matthew Landers has launched a Mother’s Day floral collection to put a smile any mum’s dial – eight beautifully curated bouquets featuring WA seasonal natives to support local WA farmers: “Small businesses are hurting once again following WA’s latest lockdown which is why I’ve adapted my range to support some of our local floral farmers.”
