Mums are amazing. But you already knew that.
What you might be a little less sure about is what you’ll be buying your mum this Mother’s Day, which is just around the corner.
As the breakfast in bed and handmade cards day approaches on May 13, we’ve searched through the Shop South Australia marketplace to find the perfect gift for all types of mums.
Shop South Australia is a one-stop shop featuring only South Australian artists, designers and makers.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Shop South Australia is running an Instagram competition giving you the chance to spoil mum with a gift valued at over $400! Head to the Shop South Australia Instagram page for details. Competition closes May 8.
So whether your mum is into fashion, likes a nice glass of red or is candle-obsessed – we’ve got Mother’s Day 2018 covered.
What to get for the mum who loves …
Naomi Murrell – this Adelaide fashion and accessories designer is behind a range of delicate yet quirky pieces.
Featuring dangling star rings and colourful frill earrings, the jewellery collection complements the fashion range of cherry reds, classic tees and polka dots.
Julie White – If you want your mum to make a statement, then Adelaide fashion and print designer Julie White is your gal.
Knee-high socks printed with hand-drawn koalas or an Australian tropics inspired scarf are sure to uplift spirits.
Julie is offering free worldwide shipping this week in light of Mother’s Day!
Temple Bruer Wines – as one of the best organic producers in the region, this winery is one not to miss this Mother’s Day.
The 2017 preservative free rosé is said to have hints of watermelon, lemon, strawberries and citrus tart.
What’s that old adage? Beauty is in the mouth of the rosé drinker? Yes. That’s the one. And that’s certainly how we’d surmise this pretty petal. You’ll be smelling watermelon ice blocks, tasting hints of chic French lemon tart, and feeling, well, absolutely besotted with this delightfully dry rosé. Good with a laksa, even better with a lover.
Wine Parcels – This box of goodies is perfect for the mum who appreciates a good drop of red (or white) and a few nibbles to go with it.
The Regional Tastes Parcel favours the Adelaide Hills, featuring selections of produce from vineyards, orchards, strawberry fields, olive groves and dairy farms.
Hard work done for you.
Etikette – candles with scents of summer fig, guava, mango and papaya.
This hand-poured soy candle range is named after different regions throughout SA.
Lobethal (yummy figgy pudding), Seacliff (all about coconut and lime) and Heysen (rich espresso), are just a few.
Rub a dub shrub – these pots with a pun are the perfect long-living gift for mum.
Depending on her appreciation of a good play on words, she’ll love the endless list of sayings able to be printed on these cute potted succulents.

The carefully selected goods in each pack are from a selection of regions including Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Limestone Coast, Clare Valley, and Riverland.
Plus, what is better than a present that you can “share” with mum.
Nolans Road – English cooking queen Nigella Lawson is a fan of this extra virgin olive oil from the Limestone Coast.
Pair with some dukkah and fresh sourdough or drizzle over a garden salad at Mother’s Day lunch.
Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics – Gemma’s beauty essentials are 100% certified vegan and cruelty free.
Her SA-made products are high quality without a compromise. Gemma, who is an I Choose SA ambassador, also has an interesting background, as her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2016 inspired the mineral-based product launch.
Yard Skincare – born from a desire to find a natural cure for teenage acne, this skincare brand features face masks, exfoliators, hand creams, cleansers and lip balms.
A lot of time and research has gone into this Adelaide Hills-based product range that is natural, organic and vegan friendly. Oh, and it smells delicious.
