Mother’s Day is this weekend. We know you’ll be looking for something nice to show mum how much you love and appreciate her. We know that’s hard though!
After all, what are you supposed to get the woman who deserves the world?! When a gift card doesn’t cut it and you’ve given her candles and slippers every other year, it can be stressful thinking of something.
You can stop panicking because H & H have some quality gift ideas for every kind of mum.
So don’t stress. We’ve got you.

For the mum who loves glamour…
If your mum always looks sophisticated, glamorous, and exudes elegance, Andronis Jewellery in James St will have the perfect gift. This boutique has a curated mix of international and local designer pieces as well as one-of-a-kind pieces made in house.
We reckon mum is going to love these gorgeous rose gold tube hoops.

For the mum who loves a treat…
If your mum is partial to a bit of chocolate from time to time and loves to indulge, the perfect gift for her can be found at the Nut Market in James St. Offering a large selection of nuts and wholefood products, their confectionary is to die for. We recommend the chocolate covered almonds. We don’t think they’ll last through the weekend!

For the mum who loves to create…
Crafty mothers with a passion for cute stationery and beautiful paper and notebooks are taken care of at The Paper Empire. Their wide selection of beautiful stationery items and creative workshops will leave you with plenty of options for mum.
We couldn’t look past the bullet journaling workshop! A gift card for an upcoming workshop should leave mum excited and happy this Mother’s Day.

For the mum who loves the environment…
For the mums out there who love to be spoiled but don’t want to negatively impact the environment, Conscious.Kin has them covered. Their range of vegan beauty products are the perfect gift for any mother who values environmental and animal protection causes.
Nourish magnesium body scrub with coconut and lime smells divine and will allow your eco-warrior mum to take 15 minutes for herself and indulge.
For the mum who loves learning…
If you’ve got a mum who always seems to be trying her hand at new hobbies and always has her head in a book, Mary Ryan’s bookstore on Merthyr Road has got you covered.
They have books on every topic under the sun. So it doesn’t matter what your mum’s interests are, there will definitely be a book for her! We recommend Sapiens by Yuval Harari, a book that looks back hundreds of thousands of years to recount humanities endeavours from the beginning until now. A highly interesting read that mum can get stuck into!

For the mum who loves adventure…
Is your mum always looking for the next thrill? Is she hiking and rock climbing with her friends one weekend and enjoying yoga by the river the next? Are you endlessly amazed by her energy and drive?
If that’s the case, we know James St’s 2XU will have the perfect present. Seeing as the colder weather is on its way, this XCTRL zip through jacket looks like a winner!
For the mum who loves to relax…
The mum who loves relaxing knows how to do so in comfort and style. She values her sleep in, followed by breakfast and a book in bed. Sheets on the Line on James St know these mums and their homewares products are carefully designed to maximise comfort while remaining sophisticated and simple.
We couldn’t look past this forest green pure linen pillowcase set. The colour is beautiful and on-trend, and the soft linen would make it even harder to leave bed this winter!

For the mum who loves to get away…
If you’re feeling particularly generous this Mother’s Day, why not treat her to a weekend away at The Calile Hotel? Moments from the James St shops and a short walk from the Howard Smith Wharves, your mum will be living the life of luxury all weekend.

For the mum who loves to innovate…
Is your mum a jack of all trades and always looking to try her hand at new things? Or perhaps she’s just looking to go outside her comfort zone and jump into something she’s never done before.
If so, the Art & Life Workshop in Newstead is the place to go this Mother’s Day. They offer a broad range of classes on everything from creating ceramics, making resin jewellery, and houseplant propagation. We think a mum who loves a bit of DIY might like to give the Intro to Metalsmithing a go!

For the mum who loves spoiling herself…
Endota Spa offers treatments and options for every mum not afraid to allow herself some pampering time. Their
The Intense Radiance session seeks offers exfoliation and cell regeneration to leave the skin feeling hydrated, renewed, and illuminated. This gift won’t disappoint.
