Get In My Home

The getinmyhome Mother’s Day 2015 gift guide

Mother’s Day is rolling around fast, and while I know none of us are fans of all the tacky, cheap nic nacs that flood the shelves for Mum, there are some quality, artisan products to treat the mother figure in your life with. I’ve chosen the favourites from my favourite designers and online stores, with a mix of budgets in mind.

Take a look…


This Mother’s Day Decoration Kit from Kikki K features pretty, Swedish deco-inspired paper flower, gift tags and paper ribbon. It’s a slick addition to your Mother’s Day gift and a nice price at $9.95.

If your Mum likes muted tones and neat patterns, she’ll love this ‘Spring Sampler No 1‘ print by Etsy retailer Eloise Renouf. Eloise says the print is based on her textural drawings of leaf shapes. It features pretty shades like bubblegum pink, salmon, grey, tan and black on a stone-coloured background. Shop online for $45.94.

One of my all-time favourite chairs is this Palermo Gold Series butterfly chair by The Citizenry. It’s in a gorgeous stone-coloured and lightly speckled cowhide with a tan underside. The chair has been handcrafted in Argentina and retails for a cool $875 (that will be one spoilt Mum!).


Let Mum put her feet up with these saddle bar and counter stools by West Elm. The swivel seats have a modern and clean aesthetic and feature pecan-stained legs and a choice of two upholstery options. They have a casual elegance about them and are taken from a mid-century design. From $369.


One of my favourite products on the market at the moment are these salt and pepper Bottle Grinders from Resident GP. There’s nothing else quite like them with the combination of ceramic, wood and rubber. You can even use them for pumpkin seeds, dried blueberries or nuts! Retailing at $129.95 in various colour combos, but these blush beauties are my pick.

Herbivore Botanicals Detox Bath Salts

Don’t we all wish we could run a bath and relax more often? Give Mum that extra incentive to do just that with these Detox Dead Sea bath salts by Herbivore Botanicals. The salts are infused with a blend of lavender and eucalyptus essential oils along with highly detoxifying Cambrian Blue clay. Snap one up for $18.

These woven hemp rugs are a perfect way to update a space and add a sense of organic and relaxed styling. The Daisy Weave edition by Armadillo & Co is called just that because of the cute coiled ‘petals’ around the circular inner rug. Place it in the entrance hall, bathroom, living room or next to the bed for extra spring under your step. Crafted by artisans in India and retailing from $200.

I’ve been a fan of Vice and Velvet ever since they popped up in the Melbourne West Elm store launch. The Melbourne-based company creates the most amazing body products, and I reckon they get bonus points for their photography, styling and delicious product names! Above is the ‘Blushing Phoenix Bathing Whip‘ – an exquisite blend of fresh lychee pulp, sweetened oolong tea and palmarosa syrup, emboldened with a drop of aged vetiver. And at $11.50, it’s a great value way to say ‘thanks Mum’!

Here’s to a loved-up day (or why not make it a weekend?!) of celebrating the mother figure in your life!

    Thanks Kate! Just wish the budget would let me buy all of these things 😉 xo

  3. come around this time of the year everything get pretty crazy when trying to look for a nice gift or two for ones mum, but it is always good to rememeber that it is the though that counts. So putting in some sort of effort goes a long way rather than just buying something for here
