If you're anything like me, you have no idea what to get your mum for mother's day. I mean, she's probably already got everything she could possibly want, right? WRONG!
This year, why not get your mum something a lil unique that she'll love AND support local (woman owned) small businesses at the same time? Check out these ten amazing stores that stock the gifts that she will LOVE and show her how much you care!
1. The Indoor Oasis
If your mum is anything like me and craves to life her best indoor jungle life then this is your ONE.STOP.SHOP. for all things plants! Not only can you shop indoor blooms that yep can be delivered, but there are also punny pots and cheeky plant themed tees too! But kids, if you're reading this my favourite has to be the propagation station! There is something so magical about seeing a plant in it's entirety roots and all!!
2. Steph Sells Sea Shells
Show your mum she is one of a kind special with Steph's gorgeous handmade one of a kind jewelery pieces! I have collected several of her masterpieces since discovering her small business on insta and I can attest to their quality, and let me tell you the pics do not do them justice! These are sure to make mum feel amazing as they certainly attract many compliments!
3. Ignited Senses
As the weather starts to cool down, now is the perfect time to get mum some delish candles! Perfect for bath time, at the dinner table or just before snuggling up on the couch to watch some tv or drink a warm drink! These soy candles always burn beautifully and fill my house with amazingly relaxing scents. In fact I have a black raspberry candle burning away right now on my desk as a type! Not only can you get candles, but there are also wax melts, room & car diffusers, soaps and more!
4. In Mels Mind
Mel is a mother to 5, a blogger, and a self-love advocate. She has created a wonderful online community of women who encourage and support each other to take better care of themselves through her self care bingo program via facebook. She also stocks a beautiful range of self care prompting stationary, as well as providing coaching calls! If your mum needs some reminding to take care of herself too then these will be perfect for her!
5. Crystal Wonderland
This is one of my latest finds, after a mum brunch I stumbled across this lil gem! If your mum loves to align her chakra, channel her spirit guides or just likes the energy of some gorgeous crystals then look no further! I myself have a soft spot for all things crystal and incense, my kids usually will burn and incense stick if I'm away because it makes them feel like I'm still at home. I gladly recommend this store for any mum, the love, care and detail they put into each and every package is incredible, both online and instore! And let's face it whether you believe in the energies of crystals or not, isn't it incredible to see that such beautiful and unique things nature can create!
6. Botanist Aromatherapy
I first came across this brand after I won a giftpack through an online course I was doing. I do love essential oils, so I already had high expectations but what I received was AMAZING! I can not reccommend the Joyful Blend enough, it is truely uplifting and energising. It's certainly on my Mother's Day wish list! They also stock an amazing range of crystal infused essential oil rollers, room sprays and bath salts (LOVE the rose soak)!!
7. Not Your Baby
Is your mum all about women's empowerment, women's rights and women supporting women?! What mum isn't, silly question!! This lil store not only has amazingly witty tees, hoodies and crews, but also affirmation cards and decals that all help support women surviving domestic abuse. $5 from the sale of each tee sold is donated to an Australian DV charity and for each deck sold, another is gifted. So this really is the gift that keeps on giving!
8. Layna Moon
This online store may only be new, but the stock is UH-MAZING!! Crystal jewelery to suit just about any taste or style. Included is an amzing range of handcrafted necklaces, and stylish rings. If crystals around the house aren't your mum's thing maybe she will love some she can wear! Each peice is made from ethically sourced materials, spiritually cleansed and sealed with love. How incredible is that?!
9. The Resin Realm
Sara creates amazingly beautiful and unique handcrafted decor featuring real botanicals, cruelty free specimens & a touch of magic! These need to be seen to be believed and again I don't think the photos do them justice. Also could be a very special & unique way of preserving the ashes of a loved one or pet who is no longer with us earth-side. If your mum is a lover of nature and all things beautiful you need to check these out!
10. JKay the Label
Anyone who knows Jess knows she is ALL about SELF LOVE and living life to the fullest!! And her range is all that and more, featuring body positivity Tees, hats, and anything and everything self care! A lil collection of crystals, candles, drink bottles, skin care and mama themed affirmation cards, all aimed at promoting self love and care for every mama!
