I often reflect on how my Mum has influenced my life and helped me become the person I am today. You may have seen our blog posts last year celebrating our Mums, Marie Kelly-Moran and Vicki Bastin-Byrne. We just spent last weekend with our Mums enjoying the Women of the World Festival (WOW) and it is surprising how our relationships continue to grow, change and evolve.
Both our Mums are interested and interesting and are often way more clued in on fashion, shopping and style trends than I am. So it is always slightly nerve wracking trying to buy the right Mother’s Day gift that matches their pizzazz! Luckily for me, I have a tribe of amazing female business owners to provide suggestions on the perfect gift. The only better feeling than giving my Mum a gift, is giving her a gift that also advances gender equality by supporting brands that are female led. Enjoy our Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
KARENGEE (KG) are any busy woman’s dream come true. The fit is customisable, and dresses are made from a trademarked fabric that does not need ironing, is ethically sourced, and is machine washable. We love that they are made to suit women of all ages, body shapes and that Karen’s aim is to make all women feel special and beautiful in her designs. In 2017 KG launched KG Corporate, a new service comprised of dedicated consultants that may assist you with your unique wardrobe needs at your office and on your schedule for a truly unique “shopping” experience. What better way to make your Mum feel special than booking her in for a one-on-one private consultation so that she enjoys the true KG experience. To give you some shopping inspiration, we’ve showcased some of KG’s customised dresses below.
Firstly, my daughter has the swimmers on the left and she looks so darn cute. Secondly, we presented with Seaheaven Swimwear Owner, Daniela Hernandez at WOW Festival last weekend. Daniela’s Mother, Adriana was in the audience, all the way from Mexico. Daniela started her matching family swimwear business to encourage the family bond. I could see this strong connection to family is from the support and encouragement from her amazing Mum. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than donning you, your husband and your children in this gorgeous swimwear. Knowing that it is made by a female leader, Daniela who values creating precious and fun family moments to be treasured.

My Mum loves looking through photos and memories. For my milestone birthdays she has often pulled together a book of photos, letters and quotes. To return the favour, I think she would love the gift ideas below from Corban & Blair that celebrate and capture our most precious possession – memories.
Fiona is a printmaker who creates wall prints using her lino print proofs and collaging them into prints, using wood, paint and paper. Natural themes are important to her work as they literally carve out the essence of landscape, flora and fauna. Her tea cup series embodies exquisite colour and texture combined with a strong lineal quality. Her inspiration derives from the organic forms evident in nature and the urban environment around her home in Sydney’s inner west and Sydney Harbour. Framed in a handmade carbon neutral slim box frame with a white acid-free mat. Each print comes in a gift box with artists details.
My Mum is an amazing writer. So, I think a notepad to capture her musings on the go is a splendid idea. I would also pop a fabulous photo of us in the photo frame, so she knows that I am always with her in spirit.
