Let’s face it, mums are a generally awesome bunch. They put up with us when we’re at our worst, cheer us on when we’re at our best, support us unconditionally, and, well, basically make the world go round.
With that in mind, our goal is to make Sunday May 9, 2021 the best Mother’s Day ever starting with the perfect gift!
Skip the frantic late night shopping trips with our curated Mother’s Day Must Haves online shopping event, featuring four amazing local brands. Each brand is offering an exclusive discount too, so it’s a win-win for both you and mum!
Read on for a closer look at the brands involved and their individual discount offers. The shopping starts now!
Thames & Hudson
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, a Thames & Hudson book is the perfect present for every age, gender and occasion.
One favourite title among the publisher’s new releases is A Room Of Her Own, featuring stunning homes from around the world (check out an excerpt here!).
Other standout design titles include The Garden State showcasing Victoria’s best private gardens, and Pre-Fab Living that documents innovative factory-made homes.
As major Ken Done fans, we’re also loving this comprehensive and extensively-illustrated monograph of the iconic artist, Art Design Life.
There’s literally over 13,000 (!) titles on offer – truly something for every mum to enjoy!
