Sending Mother's Day gifts to the UK February 26 2016

Today's post has been put together with help from some of our UK-born friends, who now call Australia home, and have their Mum back home.

'Mothering Sunday' is on March 6 in the UK, while Australian's celebrate Mother's Day in May...

One of the trickiest things, for our UK expats in Australia, is finding a Mother's Day card to send overseas at this time of year! That's why we keep a sweet range of Aussie cards suitable for mum's all year round, like these:



The other challenge with sending Mother's Day gifts back to the UK (or anywhere overseas!) is the delivery cost and time. Now with our new shipping calculator, you can see exactly how much it will cost and we also provide tracked and courier services, to help get your gifts to their destination, on time.

International postage is charged by weight and destination so a good way to keep delivery costs down is by choosing light, slim or gifts with minimal packaging like our any of our pretty printed tea towels, this cute koala & wombat notebook, colourful silk scarf or our range of handy, foldable tote bags:




While flowers are always a popular and much loved Mother's Day gift - they don't last very long! Try one of our floral inspired gifts instead, like this 'darling mums' shower cap, gum blossom earrings, pressed flower pendant necklace or pink flower cosmetic bag:



 Don't forget - for only $4.00 our convenient gift wrapping service will see your Mother's Day gifts beautifully wrapped in brown paper, colourful ribbon and twine, and you can add a personalised message to go on the gift tag!
