We like to imagine every time you purchase something from a female-owned business, they do a little happy dance in celebration. (Particularly, if it’s at 11 o’clock at night, in their dressing gown, and after a full day of work.)
This Mother’s Day, we’re hoping to have as many women performing this happy dance as possible, so we’ve curated the ultimate gift buying guide (all with our Premium members, of course!). Whether it’s for your own mum, sister, or a friend struggling on Mother’s day, we’ve got you covered.

Remember when mindful colouring books were stocked in every gift store? We found the evolution of that. Mindful puzzling. Created by the brilliant Kristy O’Kane, her company, Okay Lady stocks beautiful puzzles, all illustrated by female artists. Now, that’s more than one woman doing a happy dance!
Health. Beauty. Home. Fashion. SWIISH, by Sally Obermeder and Maha Corbett, have it all. Kind of like Lazy Sunday Lifestyle (above!), you’ll probably find yourself adding things to your cart for hours. We’re particularly loving these silver heart earrings, #GetGlowing face masks and for the mum who needs sleep (read: every mum) checkout their new Sleep Superfood powder.
