Mother’s Day gift guide 2017

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Luminar presents its gift guide – a curated selection of our favourite products for all the strong and powerful women out there.

That’s right, we believe mothers’ come in all guises so every woman should be lauded on the second Sunday in May. As we’ve mentioned before:  autumn, winter, spring and summer bring more than just a change in weather, they provide the perfect opportunity for savvy businesses to capitalise on seasonal selling.

Each year, marketing professionals leverage the key holidays, events and activities of each season. Think about it, now Easter’s done and dusted, the Lindt bunnies for the little ones have been replaced by Ferrero Rochers for mum.

Sunday 14 May is fast approaching, so keep reading for some Mother’s Day inspo.

2. Balanced Essentials Oils ✔

There’s nothing quite as calming as getting a whiff of an essential oil. It immediately creates a relaxed state of mind. Cheryl Gilbert, the founder of Balanced Essentials, has loved fragrance since childhood, where she would spend her days mixing her aunt’s expensive French perfumes. Fast forward and Cheryl’s now developed a range of aromatherapy products, from skin health and crystal products, to massage and pure oils for pain. We recommend the Be Relieved range which contains analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties that are ideal to use for arthritis, joint inflammation, muscular aches and pains, headaches and so much more. These indulgent products also calm, uplift and focus awareness. Buy here.

4. Ovvio Organics Tea ✔

You drink water, fruit juices and soft drink – but you experience tea. We like to think of it as a ‘tealosophy’. If your mum’s partial to a cuppa, you can’t go past Ovvio Organics. Ovvio’s teas are lovingly made through the expertise, excitement and experience of naturopath and herbalist, Anthia Koullouros. Each cup uses the finest flowers, fruits, seeds and leaves. So, indulge your mother figure this May and make her every sip be pure happiness. Buy here.

6. Mr Goaty Gelato

Mr Goaty Gelato will really impress the foodie mums. This product may be on-trend (delicious and creamy gelato made from goat’s milk in the fashionable the flavours of: Cacao & Coconut, Honeycomb & Lavender, Banana & Cinnamon Caramel and Cold Brew Coffee), but it’s also a simple, wholesome, locally made treat. The packaging isn’t bad either. Goat’s milk is low in lactose and some women find that it eases bloating. A tub of this is a welcome addition to anyone’s well earned night on the couch. Buy here.
