Find your mum the perfect present by shopping locally!
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, (10th of May, you should probably write that down somewhere..) and many of us are probably dreading the thought of trying to find a present for our mothers. I’ll be honest, it is pretty difficult to wrap all your love and admiration into a present, and make that present something new every year. Us kids want to make the day special, but I bet a lot of mums are reading this next to a desk of unlit candles from years past, or still have a ‘Free Hug’ coupon book collecting dust at the back of their drawers…As you can tell, I was a pretty rubbish gift-giver as a kid.
This year, let’s make it special. With the measures of social distancing in place, it may be hard for some of us to show our appreciation as we would usually. But we’ve made it our effort to dedicate this blog post to shopping local, supporting local businesses all while finding a unique and special gift for our loved ones.
I have taken some of my top picks from the incredible range on offer, and provided a quick guide to get to know some of our local retailers and what they have in-store. With their help, we can get through this Mother’s Day with ease, and focus on celebrating rather than stressing about a gift.
Mother’s Day Gift Box from We ❤️ KB
We Love KB Subscription Box
During these tough times we wanted to be able to support our local businesses in any way we can. Our hamper boxes are filled with locally-sourced products, as well as discounts on local retail, service and hospitality. We sold out of our April subscription in 24 hours, an astounding response from our awesome community! This Mother’s Day, we are offering ‘one-off’ unique gift boxes to celebrate. They are now live on our website and we only have 7 left! Get in quick here

Love our subscription box idea?
The idea is to maximise the convenience of supporting local business for our subscribers, and potentially grow sales and clientele base for our local businesses by repeating sales of the products in the boxes. Theoretically, if every person in town spent $50 on local business per month, it would inject at least $1.5M into the local economy, allowing our businesses to continue to operate smoothly.
