5 Mother's Day Gift Ideas That Support Local

Covid has put extra pressure on parents… just a little bit (nervous laughter). Are you over 2022 yet?

How’s mum going through all of this? Holding the fort as usual? Whether she admits it or not, she’s probably feeling frazzled. So we think Mother’s Day this year should be extra special.

While you’re spoiling mum, why not support local Perth businesses while you're at it? We’ve got some cool Mother’s Day gift ideas to help you out.

1. Gift voucher to her favourite boutique

There’s nothing like some retail therapy, and right now, the economy needs it. A gift voucher is a two-in-one gift – a chance for mum to get out of the house, and an excuse to buy something special. If mum likes homewares, then here's our top picks, La Luna, Granite Lane, Jardan and Haveli & Co. We also love fashion boutique's Harry & Gretel, Perlu and Darling & Domain.

2. Head out for a Special Meal

Now we have a little more freedom, eating out has never looked so good! So why not for Mother’s Day? We love Besk in West Leederville, and highly recommend Il Lido Italian Canteen in Cottesloe. And for Freo? You can’t go past Madalenas Bar.

3. Some much-needed relaxation

Our nails are looking rubbish and our hair could do with a trim. And the novelty of at-home facials has definitely lost its appeal. Not only are we missing our regular appointments, but beauty and wellness businesses have really taken a hit. One way to support them is to buy gift vouchers to redeem when the time is right for Mum. This way, you support local business and give your loved one something to look forward to. Our favourites are La Belle Peau in North Perth, Blanc in Cottesloe, and Olive & July in Subiaco and their gorgeous day spa in South Perth.

4. A bottle of local wine

You know how we mentioned getting a delicious meal out, well getting a take away vino might be more of Mum's style. Why not team your food with a lovely drop of WA wine? Here are our favourites – Stonegaze Vineyard, House of Cards, Dormilona Wine, Hay Shed Hill Wines, Vasse Felix, Singlefile and Snake and Herring. But of course, there are plenty of others that will do just as well.

5. Book that Getaway

Mum might just be looking for some quality time away with her family. Why not check out the very new Stillwood Retreat, hot off the press, this dreamy accomodation curated by the very clever Studio Atelier. Can't get any better than that!

Bonus Mother’s Day Tips:

DIY Mother's Day cards

There’s nothing sweeter than receiving a cute handmade card from the kids. It’s also a great way to keep them occupied for an hour or two (hopefully). Instead of relying on crayon drawings, mix it up with some arty elements. We love these ideas by Easy Peasy and Fun and DIY & Crafts.

Breakfast in bed

We saved the best until last! Breakfast in bed. Mums just love to be surprised in the morning (at a decent hour). It’s one of the most thoughtful things you can do for your partner. A good cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast she can eat while you and the kids give her gifts in bed.
