Mother’s day gift guide
This Mother’s Day, those who live nearby get to actually see our mums – we’re not desperately checking the tracking details to make sure our Mother’s Day gift arrives in time like last year in the midst of early lockdown! We can actually celebrate family after a pretty challenging year and make the most of seeing people face to face again. For those that can’t see their family still due to interstate or international closures, we’re so sorry. And for those of us that can – savour it, enjoy it and make the most out of it! If you’re feeling anything like us, we want to pamper and spoil the people we love. And we want to do this with all of the good stuff….food, wine, flowers and of course deliciously wonderful smelly things! 🥰
While you may be able to come into our store for the full sensory experience, a lot of people can’t and we wanted to make spoiling family with sensory delights as easy as possible so we’ve created the following gift guide to make sure that nothing at all gets missed! Continue reading below to see our top picks for Mother’s Day this year. We have made it easy by categorising the fragrance notes and if you need a help choosing a gift or fragrance for Mum we are only a phone call or email away!
