Want to add a personal touch to Mum’s home on Mother’s Day, a birthday or another special occasion? KnowHow co-founder Sonya Martin has uncovered some incredible Australian businesses providing beautiful and meaningful gifts.
And it is these gifts that can be used honour all Mums … including Grandmothers, Mums-to-be, aspiring Mums, spiritual and mentor mums and more.
So … you’re still not sure what to buy for your Mum? You’re tired of gifting the same old stuff (and so is Mum, to be honest!), but it is easy to run out of ideas or get overloaded by the flood of soulless offerings being pushed at you.
But remember, home is where the heart is.
So why not leaving a lasting impression of your love for Mum, at her home?
I’ve been researching (probably a little too much!) great Aussie businesses who are genuinely doing something special, and are sure to make an impact on Mum this Mother’s Day, or any special day.
Here’s three of my favourites (there’s no catch or commission, I just love what these businesses are doing!).
1. Luxury teaware, glassware and more from Cristina Re

The market is flooded with household items, glassware and stationery for mum, so how do you truly dazzle mum with an item that she’ll cherish? Look no further than Cristina Re Design.
Melbourne based Cristina Re is Australia’s leading designer of luxury teaware, glassware, stationery and gifts, with a philosophy of ‘creating every day objects that are feminine, beautiful and designed to make you feel good’ .
Many of her original pieces are inspired by flora and fauna, and mix vintage with modern minimalism. So whether you’re after an elegant wine glass, timeless teapot and teacup set, or beautifully designed journal, Cristina has something to give Mum’s home that special touch from you.
2. Wellbeing, healing and skincare with Hanako Therapies

As wonderful as motherhood is, it is also a huge effort. Many mums can become lost in their busy daily schedules and forget to pamper themselves after taking care of everyone else. So, now is your opportunity to make her home a haven and give the gift of relaxation, healing and wellbeing.
Hanako Therapies specialises in spiritual healing, meditation and reflection through organic aromatherapy, skincare and natural, therapeutic solutions.
Owners Rachel and Jeff Holm are passionate about the power of natural ingredients and alternative healing, and strive to help others cleanse and nourish their souls.
The best part is the team at Hanako Therapies have put together many different gift packs that promise your mum the ultimate wellbeing experience. While some products aim to bring inner peace and a meditative sleep through calm, tranquility and relief, others are designed for affirmations or restoring the skin.
Hanako Therapies also allows you to create your own Mother’s Day box, so you can customise the gift to her style, favourite scents, and needs.
3. Sustainable outdoor style with Merry People

Merry People is the perfect business for Mums who love to garden and cherish their outdoor space. Their famous Bobbi Gumboots are the perfect trifecta – durable, comfortable AND fashionable. They’re 100% waterproof, 100% vegan and come in a range of earthy tones to suit any Mum’s individual style.
But what truly separates this product from your everyday rain boot is their versatility and style. Your Mum can dress them up or down and wear them in the backyard or for a special occasion. Either way, she’ll feel like a superstar!
Oh, and why not go a step further and buy a matching pair for the significant little one, too … cute to boot!
4. Go green with Dalisay pots
