Mother’s Day gifts – from your laptop

It's almost that time of year again – order online now to make mum feel special with our gift picks for Mother's Day.

Chocolate is usually a pretty safe bet for Mum, but this year, take it to another level with local chocolatier Adixions’ Australian Natives Collection Trio. The set features three dark chocolate tablets – Kakadu Plum & Cacao Nibs, Strawberry Eucalyptus & Dried Strawberry and Lemon Aspen & Murray River Pink salt. The tablets are made with fair-trade French chocolate and Australian ingredients. There’s even an option for luxury gift boxing.

Pack your chocolate, rug up and take Mum on a (socially distanced) picnic. This Loveridge & Co picnic basket in Summerset peach is the coolest way to carry around sandwiches. Find this style, as well as other fun prints, at The South Australian Collective. Comfort is key and there’s nothing quite like the classic Mother’s Day bathrobe. However, the Citta dressing gown from Living by Design isn’t your average cosy cover-up. The softness of the velour fabric will keep Mum wrapped up in this all day long. The concrete and white spot print is subtly playful, without being over-the-top cutesy.

Go all-out and spoil mum with the Kailis Nyx necklace from James Thredgold Jeweller. Inspired by the Greek goddess of the night, the design features a 925 sterling silver pendant, cradling an 8mm Australian South Sea kasha pearl.

Is there anything quite as luxurious as sleeping atop a pillowcase made of silk? Try S&Co’s very regal green pillowcase, made of 100 per cent natural mulberry silk. It promotes smoother hair and softer skin, and a very good night’s rest.

Take a quick poll of all the mums you know. What do they want this Mother’s Day? Chances are, more than a couple just want a night off from cooking. Enter, The Family Cook. South Australian Victoria Braithwaite is a mum of two and has created a fuss-free meal delivery service with nutritious food that won’t have you feeling guilty about outsourcing. You can try once, or get a gift card to purchase more regular meals, including frozen options.

Is your mum partial to a nice gin? Introduce her to the Barossa’s Seppeltsfield Road Distillers with the SRD Gin Gift Pack, featuring three 200ml bottles from the label’s core gin range. The pack includes the House Gin, Barossa Dry and Savoury Allsorts. Try the House Gin with tonic and a slice of green apple. The Savoury Allsorts is great with a dry tonic and twist of lemon peel and a sprig of fresh thyme, and add a dry tonic and grapefruit peel to the Barossa Dry.

If she’s more of a wine drinker, try Two Hands Wines’ Picture Perfect Pack. This will serve her well over the coming months, with three bottles each of the Trusty Rusty Barossa Valley Grenache Rosé, Gnarly Dudes Barossa Valley Shiraz, Brave Faces Barossa Valley Grenache Mourvedre Shiraz and Fields of Joy Clare Valley Shiraz.


This delightful clutch is a collaboration between local brand Kitty Came Home – a Bowerbird regular – and local artist Claire Ishino. The Bi-fold Plus is big enough to hold even the larger smartphones, with room for money, cards and all the other things we tend to accumulate. There’s a range of beautiful designs, but we particularly love Claire’s pink gum print, created just for this clutch.

If you’re feeling really generous, why not give mum something she can put her new clutch in? Local brand Stentorian Leather’s Ida bag is dreamy in matte black. The wooden-handled beauty is versatile – sophisticated enough for the office, yet playful enough with a flowy dress and slides.
