All year round, mums do a lot of work that goes unnoticed. Mums are the first ones called upon when kids get sick at school, they’re the ones who RSVP to birthday parties, organise playdates- the list of unpaid work mums do, often without being asked or thanked for, is endless.
Most mums would do anything for their children. This is often actualized not through grand gestures that receive great acclaim, but through small acts like moving appointments around to suit the rest of the family, cooking dinner despite desiring nothing less, or getting up in the middle of the night to feed or comfort kids even when they’re on the brink of physical and mental exhaustion.
Mother’s Day is the one occasion of the year where we recognise mums for the many little acts they do every day. This year, show your mum you don’t take her for granted with a beautiful gift from one of the below local retailers, which says “I see all that you do for me, I am ever so grateful, and I love you beyond words.” (You can even steal that for your card if you like!)
The Natural Gift Collective
A personalised grazing board is the perfect present for any cheese and wine-loving mum (practically all mums!). Thanks to The Natural Gift Collective, your mum can up her weekly platter game with a beautifully hand-burned board by local artist and owner, Bec. Bec creates all of the boards from reclaimed, sustainable timber in her Cronulla workshop. Referencing a special date or in this case, immortalising her favourite child, these personalised cheese boards will be the talking point of your mums next dinner party.

The Emsella chair is a total game-changer for women suffering with vaginal looseness (post-baby) or urinary incontinence. The Emsculpt works on the abdominal muscles, helping to strengthen, shape, and tone loose muscles (post-baby). The Emsculpt generates electromagnetic energy to the entire core equivalent to doing 20,000 perfect sit-ups in 30 minutes.
