Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Hello petals!

It’s almost Mother’s Day (I know, sneaks up on us all every year, right?!), so it’s time to start thinking about ways to spoil the gorgeous mums in our lives. Now, while I know most mums (like myself) love handmade stuff from their kids (or families!), there are some amazing small NZ businesses out there; so if you’re going to go for a bought gift, I’d encourage you to think local!

After the heart-warming popularity of my Christmas list, I thought why not curate another just purely for mums? Any excuse to discover some incredible new businesses, right?! This time though I gave businesses the option of adding a discount code (and who doesn’t love a discount?!), so the list is extra epic this time round – hooray!

So go on and have a nosey – you know you want to – and as always, I take no responsibility for the amount of money you end up spending (but you’re directly supporting NZ families, so it doesn’t count as really spending money… right…???). Don’t forget to share this with your communities – or even just directly share to your family as a “hint hint” 😉

**I haven’t personally used all these businesses obviously – those that I’ve used (and loved!) or have dealt with a few times so can personally recommend are in bold) :)**
