Looking for a little something to say thank you to the mother figures in your life? Whether she’s a mother-in-law, step-mum, fur-mum or expecting, we’ve got the perfect locally-made gift to give this Mother’s Day.
The Plant Mum
A lush indoor plant that Mum is sure to love. The Monstera Deliciosa has deep green leaves and is relatively low-maintenance (read: hard-to-kill). It’s the perfect option for a time-poor mum who doesn’t need another dependant, human or otherwise. From $8.
A funky vase with a floral silhouette, The Spring Pot by Capra Designs is a work of art in and of itself. Handmade from durable resin, the subtle terrazzo finish makes it a stylish addition to any home interior. $89.
The Foodie Mum
Treat Mum to a seasonal feast at The Ninch’s newest wine bar. Sip on a glass of bubbles or a Yuzushu Spritz whilst working your way through the set menu – which includes torched salmon with mustard buttermilk dressing, crispy potatoes with local saltbush and chocolate mousse with blackberry and almond chantilly cream. It’s a ‘yum’ from us. $60pp.
For Mums who like to scour the menu before they arrive, Hotel Sorrento’s Mother’s Day menu is sure to tickle her fancy. Standouts include the manchego croquettes with smoked corn and thyme, slow-roasted lamb shoulder with parmesan gratata, and a classic profiterole with strawberries and cream. Book her an overnight stay with a complimentary bottle of bubbles for extra brownie points. From $89pp.
We all know that the right serving bowl has the ability to take a salad from drab to fab. These beauties are made in small batches, with each bowl hand-moulded in clay before being cast in resin. Whether it’s taking pride of place on the dinner table or being filled with citrus to display, it’s a thoughtful keepsake that Mum is sure to love. $199.
The Creative Mum
Join Flinders-based weaver Emma Shepherd for a meditative afternoon exploring the ancient art of weaving. This mindful workshop will allow Mum to slow down, get creative, and enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles in a serene coastal environment. Afterwards, she can shop the surrounding racks at Aestas boutique. $210pp.
Get muddy with Mum during this hands-on, 90-minute clay workshop. Learn how to make and decorate the perfect mug for her morning ritual using hand-building techniques such as pinching, slap rolling and coiling. After the workshop, your creations will be glazed and ready to collect in three weeks time. $90pp.
The Wellness Mum
Combining contemporary Australian design and performance, Seek Solitude’s sustainable yoga mats are the perfect gift for Mum to unroll and unwind. Made with eco-friendly and biodegradable materials, they’re also a win for Mother Earth. $119.
For Mums who like a touch of luxury, this relaxing experience for two is a collaboration between Ten Minutes by Tractor and Alba Thermal Springs and Spa. Mum will begin the day relaxing in tranquil geothermal pools, before heading to Ten Minutes by Tractor to indulge in a wine tasting and five-course tasting menu made with fresh seasonal produce. $560 for two.
The Stylish Mum
Inspired by the classic outback fedora, The Andy is equal parts sunsmart and chic. Made from 100% Australian wool and designed right here on The Ninch, it’s a no-brainer for stylish Mums who love to get out and about in the great outdoors. $149.
For a thoughtful gift that will become a family heirloom, look no further than a signet ring by local jeweller Til Foley. Featuring an array of stones and sapphires in sterling silver or 9ct gold, this beauty is a classic style designed to last the ages. Get a custom piece made with family birthstones to make it extra special. From $320.
The Spirited Mum
For Mums who prefer juniper berries to woolly jumpers and socks. The Gin High Tea at Bass & Flinders includes a decadent array of sweet and savoury treats, served alongside a classic G & T on arrival and a boutique Gin Paddle to enjoy at your leisure. $95.
The team at Cellar & Pantry make celebrations a breeze with ready-made hampers jam-packed with local produce. Give Mum the gift of bubbles with this trio of sparkling wines by some of the region’s top producers. $130.
A cosy robe is top-of-the-list when preping for baby and packing the ol’ hospital bag. With a range of colours and styles to choose from, this mustard and peach number will provide comfort and warmth through pregnancy and beyond. $99.
Gift mum-to-be with a nurturing pregnancy massage designed to support their journey into motherhood. Combining nourishing body oils, supportive belly cushions and restorative touch, it’s the ultimate gift to soothe those pesky pregnancy aches and pains. From $130.
