For the Beautyologist


Every mum loves a bit of skincare – especially when it’s from Mecca Cosmetica, Australia’s finest bazaar for all things beauty, skincare and fragrance. Or, if you consider Mum to be more of a minimalist treat her to something from Aesop. An Australian brand, they’re renowned for skin, hair and body care formulations made with efficacy and sensory pleasure in mind. Both stores are located in QueensPlaza, or you can shop them online.

For the Flower Lover 

Maison Fleur

If your mum cherishes fresh blooms on her kitchen counter, bedside and dining table, you can’t go past Maison Fleur in Margaret Street and Burnett Lane. With arrangements by acclaimed floral designers Bart Hassam and Carolyn Williamson, order online for exquisite bouquets sourced locally with same-day delivery available throughout Brisbane’s city centre and surrounding suburbs

For the Style Savvy

For the wardrobe you always find yourself dipping into (you know who you are), spoil mum with a new outfit or replace an item you’ve taken. Shop with feminine, contemporary and playful fashion labels such as Camilla & Marc, Camilla and Gorman. Found in QueensPlaza and David Jones, you can shop these Australian brands online for express delivery.

For the Maximalist 

Dinosaur Designs

Choose accessories with vibrant colours from Dinosaur Designs, located in the Wintergarden or refined and sparkling jewellery at Tiffany & Co in QueensPlaza. For the mum who prefers a chic leather accessory, check out Designer Archives on Edward Street for luxury vintage wares. All these stores currently offer standard or express shipping when you shop online.

For the Escapist 

For the avid reader, wordsmith and all-round wise woman,  find mum the latest literature, cookbook or popular page-turner online at Folio Books, located on Charlotte Street, or from Dymocks on the Queen Street Mall. Is she a writer as well? Let her thoughts effortlessly transfer to paper with the fine stationary and pens from The Pen Shoppe in Brisbane Arcade.

For the Gourmand 

If your mum’s two favourite things are wine and cheese (aside from you, of course), order delicious cheese, charcuterie and wine in takeaway hampers from The Cheese Pleaser or  Grape Therapy on Adelaide Street. Does she enjoy a posh cocktail, too? Death & Taxes in Burnett Lane is offering ready-made cocktails online for pickup and delivery within 5km of the CBD.

For the Mum-to-Be

If you’re gifting a baby mama, treat her to some natural exfoliating coffee scrubs from Frank Body, or clean, uncomplicated and cruelty-free skincare from Go-To Skincare. Both Aussie brands are available at Mecca Maxima on Queen Street and online. Or, for on-trend baby clothes, shop with Seed Heritage on Queen Street Mall! They’re a must for mini outfits that scream cuteness. Order for express shipping via the online store.

For the Sweet Tooth 

If your Mum loves chocolate (who doesn’t), look no further than Noosa Chocolate Factory on Adelaide Street. We recommend one of their mouth-watering chocolate hampers, filled with chocolate slabs, coated nuts and dried fruit – all made in Queensland and available for online delivery. Plus, why not pair her chocolate hamper with delicious sweet teas such as cherry splice, vanilla chai and Turkish delight from The Tea Centre’s online store, also located in Brisbane Arcade.
