Your Mother's Day gift guide
Without a doubt, Mum knows we love her every day of the year, but on Mother’s Day we get to spoil her with love that little bit more. As the internet has blessed us with an overabundance of gorgeous gifts, choosing the perfect one can be a mission and a half that’s for sure.
Don’t fret, we’ve done some window shopping for you. Here are AUZi’s top picks for gifts for Mum this Mother’s Day. Better yet, they’re all small Australian businesses. Let’s support our local artisans and makers the best way we know how – shopping!
Aleisa Byfield Artisan
Aleisa is a Port Macquarie based artist that sells her unique and stunning pieces at her local markets. Luckily, she also has an online store for you to shop her ceramic jewellery, plates, bowls and platters.
Aleisa’s work is inspired by the diversity and unpredictability of the textures, patterns and colours of the hinterland and coastal environment. See more of Aleisa’s work on her shop here.
Willow and Blossom Collection
If Mum loves her jewellery, Willow and Blossom Collection have some lovely handmade clay and wooden pieces. They have a colour and pattern to suit any outfit! Willow and Blossom are also just about to launch their natural skincare range.
