Mothers day is traditionally all about the hand made crafts, pancakes in bed and all those extra mummy cuddles to show us how much we are appreciated.
Sometimes though, it’s nice to be surprised with something a little extra. To receive something we have wanted for a long time, something we know we will use all year round, or something special we didn’t buy ourselves.
Below we have made a list of small businesses around Australia, offering gorgeous products for Mothers day that we would want to receive.
If you’re a mum, send this blog to your partner to make sure they know where to shop this Mother's Day.
Personalise the brekkie in Bed experience
Firstly, we all love brekkie in bed on Mother's day. We definitely love this tradition, but what if you make the experience super personalised with some of these feature pieces.
Customise your breakfast tray with a special message from the heart for Mother's day breakfasts in bed. The perfect size for Dad and small hands.
We all have a favourite mug we like to drink our coffee or tea from. Make this one her favourite by personalising the design. The perfect addition to any mummas morning routine.
This piece is the sweetest addition to your breakfast in bed experience. Turn children's artworks, photos, hand and footprints into something they'll treasure forever. Strong enough to use every day, they provide a lasting memory of childhood. Dads get in and help the kids paint a special mothers day design!
Perhaps you are skipping breaky in bed all together and letting her get some much needed sleep. Nip out with the kids so the house is silent and grab her a ‘real’ coffee in a Luxey take away cup. Luxey designs are super cute, the glass is lighter and stronger than most reusable coffee cups and the lid actually stays on! Amen
Sentimental gifts for mum
Aside from brekkie in bed, one thing mums love most is something gifted from the heart. These sentimental gifts are guaranteed to make her smile all year round.
The Birth Poster is a series of illustrations that remind you of how small your baby was at birth. The timeless artwork is scaled to the actual length of the baby at birth. At the bottom, print your baby’s birth details – name, length, weight, and birthday.
Francesca have modern designs that are timeless and have been shared by many of the top mummy bloggers we all know and love. As well as being handmade in Tasmania (yay support local) Francesca also offers free gift wrapping on all orders! Super easy and stress free for you, and mum will love it.

Scrapbooking is such an amazing way to be creative and document precious memories but often we don't have the time to dedicate to recording these special moments. Get started on this project for her and show her how much you care.
Send her flowers but make the experience next level. LVLY unique flower bouquets and hampers will leave a lasting impression on her. You can even sneak in a drink or two .
