100% Australia-made gift packages
Whether you’re looking for a visiting gift for a new mum, Valentine’s Day present to show your appreciation for someone, or to celebrate her first Mother’s Day, gift sets are an easy way to delight and surprise her.
Not only do gift hampers provide a lot of value for money, but they are also beautifully designed and packaged with the intention of bringing joy to the receiver.
In my search to find the most gorgeous gift packs that will be well-received, I’ve gone a step further and only included 100% Australian businesses that produce all their products locally. So you can rejoice knowing that when you purchase from any of these businesses, you are also supporting the local economy.
On top of that, almost all of these gift bundles are available on Afterpay, so they are more affordable and you can budget accordingly.
The great thing about a box full of baby essential samples is that a new mum will get to try a bit of everything before committing to a particular brand or product.
The 3 Box Gift Plan is very affordable considering you get three boxes, one delivered each month, so it’s really like giving a gift that a new mum can look forward to for a few months at least.
If you really want to indulge her, get her the 6 Box Gift Plan so she has a good half a year to enjoy special goodies.

Wondered why most gift packs for mums are health and beauty products? It’s because mums are always the first people to sacrifice their own wellbeing to look after others. This means they usually neglect self-care and looking after themselves.
The Box Set of 3 from Eve’s Skin is a thoughtful gift to remind new mums that they deserve the best. The package includes:
- Pink Clay Mask – infused with healing herbs and suitable for all skin types
- Moisturiser – contains coconut oil and cocoa butter, and infused with jacaranda flower to stimulate collagen production
