A natural, new age Mother’s Day gift guide
Mother’s Day is a time to show appreciation of our mums and all the wonderful things they do for us! Here are my favourite gift ideas for the natural, new age mum. Ladies, you might like to share this on Facebook or email to the appropriate loved ones!
♥ Cosima Skincare
Cosima Flawless Nourishing gift pack. I am a big fan of this range – I was lucky enough to win some from Facebook a while ago and totally loved how they made my skin feel. Angela is a Queensland mum who has created these natural products using certified organic ingredients of remarkable quality.
Flawless is a new line, full of anti-aging ingredients and is a natural alternative to Botox (much better than injecting yourself with toxins, I reckon!). It’s all backed up with clinical evidence, not false promises. Not tested on animals, recyclable packaging and manufactured in Australia – it ticks all my NNAM boxes.
You can get it online direct from Cosima.
♥ Pana Chocolate Gift Pack
It’s no secret I love chocolate and Pana is one of the best healthy chocolates around. The ‘I Love You Mum‘ gift box has four 45g bars (Mint, Rose, Coconut & Goji and Raw Cacao) and a cute gift card to write your own personal message.
Pana chocolate is handmade in Melbourne using raw, fair trade, certified organic ingredients. No sugar, soy, dairy. gluten, additives, preservatives, GMOs or animal products. I totally love the packaging which is made in Australia with 100% recycled cardboard, soy based inks and recycled foil. Yeah, this company walks the talk!

♥ Hand-made phone holder and matching key fobs.
The clever girls from Me and Babes and Funky Bub on the Sunshine Coast have joined up to make these Mother’s Day sets. They source vintage fabrics from things like tablecloths and sheets and upcycle them into very funky things.
The phone sleeves fit most smart phones and it has a wristlet so you don’t have to hold onto anything (except little hands or groceries) and a snap fastener to keep the phone secure. The key fob has two key rings and a clasp attached so you can secure it to your handbag when need be.
This is a fabulous cookbook I have had for many years. Donalee Halkett is a very clever mum who has come up with loads of snack ideas for kids and big kids. It’s full of colourful photos and interesting ideas. There are recipes for juices, smoothies, dips, patties, wraps, dehydrated foods and some yummy sweet treats and baking.
♥ DIY teacup candle.
I have seen this idea in so many places and I can’t wait to give them a go. It’s so easy and thrifty! Just pick yourself up a vintage tea cup from an op shop, some soy or beeswax and pure essential oils. Find out how to do it at Inhabitat.
♥ A maternal care pack.
For just $20, get Mum a charity gift from Act for Peace. The maternal care pack is for women in Pakistan who are not allowed out of their home and often give birth with untrained help. The pack goes towards midwives and safe birthing delivery kits as well as post and ante natal care.
You can help lower the maternal and child mortality rates in this country, which are among the highest in the world. Head to Karma Currency for the details. “Thank you for coming to provide us with the clinic and health care. You have done more for us than you will ever know.” – Yesmeen, Pakistan.
I hope this has given you a little inspiration for your mum or some ideas on what you can put on your wish list! However you like to celebrate, have a fabulous Mother’s Day and enjoy the precious time with your family.
