Mother’s Day will be a little bit different this year but if you’re looking to treat your mum then thanks to online shopping, the supermarket and pharmacies there are still options available. There will be lots of you, like us, that won’t be able to give your mum a hug on Mother’s Day but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate her (or Zoom call her). This year we decided to pare back our usual gift guide and keep it mostly homegrown so we can help to support our local businesses when they need it the most. We also understand that being able to splash out on luxurious gift sets might not be possible for some right now so we have included a range of different price points to suit every budget.
All of these brands are available to shop online from this week (click the titles to shop) and many are available either at the supermarket or your local pharmacy. Luckily for us, New Zealand has some truly beautiful brands and having any of these gifts show up on her doorstep will be sure to brighten mum’s day. If a gift isn’t in the budget then a phone call or card will make mum smile too. Wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there.
