market picks for a glorious mother’s day


1 | You know what I always say; the presentation is just as important as the present itself. Thankfully Kikki K has you covered when it comes to their range of Mother’s Day cards, wrapping and ribbon – in beautiful pink, white and pale green hues. It’s all very floral and feminine and is sure to have Mumma smiling on the big day!


2 | I am mad about the use of neon in home decor of late and these soft furnishings – cushions, throws and quilts from Country Road – are so very on trend for Mum’s who are hip to what’s happening! I love the way these pieces strike the perfect balance between sophistication and style. And considering the weather is only getting colder, they’re very timely for Mother’s Day!


3 | For cleaning products that actually make you want to have a day of tidying, you can’t go past the chic Murchison-Hume range of plant-based products. Using sustainable formulas that are gentle on the environment, the products are so well presented in their dark-brown glass that I want some for my own laundry! Grab yours on The Home website this week.

4 | Typo never fails to disappoint when it comes to affordable gifts and their Mother’s Day pressies are no different. I love the polka dots and colour combination on this four-piece tea set, which comes in a cute carry box so you don’t even need to wrap!

5 | These Skurar candle holders from IKEA are so cheap it is not even funny. At $2.99 each you can afford to buy a dozen of them with a packet of tealight candles so Mum can really make her space cosy for Autumn. You could even use one as a pen/pencil holder in an office space.


6 | And of course, don’t forget to buy Mum some flowers. These pink beauties are available to Sydneysiders at the EQ Village markets – but I’m sure you all have your own local florist. My tip; I always think it’s best to veer toward the less common flowers – and they’re often the cheapest. Buy a few bunches of the more affordable blooms, mix a few varieties together and have them wrapped in brown paper!
