Here's our 20 best Mother’s Day present

  1. 100% Shea Butter 

     100% Shea Butter Tube 30ml
    Moms have an amazing talent of knowing when to be firm, and when to be soft; let’s call it a matriarchal instinct. Unfortunately, human skin isn’t as forgiving as moms, and sometimes it needs a little bit of help to soften up. This shea butter by Pré de Provence is the perfect candidate. It’s super-moisturising and comes in a handy travel tube. A must-have for the moms of the world.

  2. True Vanilla Eau de Parfum

     True Vanilla Eau De Parfum
    Elegant, smooth and damn right decadent. No, we’re not talking about your mom, these qualities belong to the True Vanilla Eau de Parfum by Library of Flowers. Cute packaging AND an amazing smell - Mom will be happy if this turns up on Mother’s Day.

  3. You Wanna Piece Oven Mitt

     You Wanna Piece Oven Mitt
    Your mom is pretty special you know, she deserves the best of the best - yes, this even applies to kitchen accessories. Your mom can’t be preparing her special dishes in any old oven mitt, get one worthy of her greatness (We recommend this one).

  4. Purrfect Pinch Bowls

     Purrfect Pinch Kitchen Bowls Set of 6
    If your mom’s a fan of cats, cute kitchenware or funky colors, these kitten bowls will make the purrfect gift. Warning, she’ll be looking for any excuse to use them, so don’t buy these if you’re on a snack diet!

  5. Kitty Wine Stopper

     Stop Kitty Wine Stopper
    Wine and moms, name a more iconic duo? Okay, so not all moms drink wine, but for those that do, you’re about to become the favourite child. You’re basically gifting her a reason to cork open another bottle, not that she needed one in the first place.

  6. Hill Dale Tote Bag

     Hill & Dale Tote Bag

    Tote bags are pretty useful for everyone, but gift one to a mom, and you’ll see it used in ways you didn’t know existed (probably because your mom always carries your stuff). We recommend one with a cute pattern, to make all the other moms jealous of course.

  7. Cacti Water Bottle

     Cacti Water Bottle
    Mom’s are constantly busy, they barely even get the chance to sit down and revitalise that energy that’s so unique to moms. Pick her up a water bottle and she’ll be able to maintain her superhuman powers on the move. This cactus patterned one will also keep her up on the latest trends.

There’s even an opening for her phone charger, so she can play Color Bump 3D for hours without ever having to move! Let’s be honest, she deserves the rest.

  11. Fly Away Betty Apron

     Fly Away Betty Apron
    After catering to your every need for the past however many years, you may have noticed your mom’s apron is a little worse for wear - certainly not to the standard your Mother dearest deserves. If it has more food stains than original coloring, do the right thing and grab her a new one.
