Mother's Day Gift Guide 2019

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2019 by Yarra Valley Maker Australia

"No, really. Don’t get me anything."


You can hear your Mum saying it can’t you?  Well don't fall for it. Instead get her something she'll treasure for years to come. The best Mother’s Day gifts are those that are carefully selected and show how much you appreciate her efforts throughout the year. Here at Yarra Valley Maker, that's what you'll find – quality, personalised gifts that can be engraved with a special message to mum. You'll be the favourite sibling of all time.

Your mum does so much for you and this is the one day you get to really spoil her. Show her how much thought you put into her present by getting something unique with her name or a personal message. And additional bonus, you can do it all from the comfort of your chair, no need to walk the length of a shopping centre looking for something that is "so her".

Lovely personalised gardening tools for the mad keen gardener mums or a personalised chopping board for the mums who like to cook?  If mum relaxes with a glass of “grown-up juice” at the end of the day, she’ll love a glass engraved with your own favourite saying or joke.  If yours is a DIY type mum - grab her a personalised hammer (hammers with names on are less likely to be ‘borrowed’).

Mother’s Day is a day to spoil nannas and grandmas too, so shop for both while you’re here.  You can even get gift wrapping and delivery straight to mum’s door.

So plan ahead - Mother's Day this year is Sunday 12th May 2019 and your order needs to be in by 5pm Monday the 1st of May (standard delivery).  Ready?  Let’s get shopping...

Mother's Day this year is on Sunday 12th May 2019.

There are many ways you can celebrate Mother’s Day – and the main goal is to show your mum that you love and appreciate her. Every mum deserves to be pampered on Mother's Day. Breakfast in bed, a day to pop her feet up and relax and maybe a special trip to her favourite restaurant for lunch or dinner – a day filled with well earned indulgence and over the top spoiling. Flowers, cake, sparkling wine (or her favourite tipple), a beautiful card and a special gift will also be appreciated.

Where can Mother’s Day gifts be delivered?

Yarra Valley Maker can deliver your Mother’s Day gift anywhere Australia Post goes (Australia wide). So, no matter where you are or where your mum lives, you can always get the perfect, personalised Mother’s Day gift delivered – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin, Hobart and anywhere else across our beautiful country.

When should I order to get my gift delivered in time for Mother’s Day?

Orders close off:

So if, for whatever reason, you are can’t be there on her special day, you can get your selected present beautifully gift wrapped and shipped directly to her door. Yarra Valley Maker as a wide range of wrapping options in different colours and you can add a card with a personal note to your order.

A bit of Mother's Day inspiration  - a poem by Elizabeth Akers Allen

There are days when you just need your mum. The world can be a hard place and even grown ups miss the days when their mothers could rock them to sleep. Allen's poem is about the bond between mother & child that remains strong even once you grow up. Your mother will always be important to you.

Rock Me to Sleep

Backward, turn backward, O Time, in your flight,
Make me a child again just for tonight!
Mother, come back from the echoless shore,
Take me again to your heart as of yore;
Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care,
Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair;
Over my slumbers your loving watch keep;  
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

Backward, flow backward, O tide of the years!
I am so weary of toil and of tears, 
Toil without recompense, tears all in vain,
Take them, and give me my childhood again!
I have grown weary of dust and decay,
Weary of flinging my soul-wealth away;
Weary of sowing for others to reap;
Rock me to sleep, mother – rock me to sleep!

Tired of the hollow, the base, the untrue,
Mother, O mother, my heart calls for you!
Many a summer the grass has grown green,
Blossomed and faded, our faces between:
Yet, with strong yearning and passionate pain,
Long I tonight for your presence again.
Come from the silence so long and so deep;
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

Over my heart, in the days that are flown,
No love like mother-love ever has shone;
No other worship abides and endures,—      
Faithful, unselfish, and patient like yours:
None like a mother can charm away pain
From the sick soul and the world-weary brain.
Slumber’s soft calms o’er my heavy lids creep;
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

Come, let your brown hair, just lighted with gold,
Fall on your shoulders again as of old;
Let it drop over my forehead tonight,
Shading my faint eyes away from the light;
For with its sunny-edged shadows once more
Haply will throng the sweet visions of yore;
Lovingly, softly, its bright billows sweep;
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!

Mother, dear mother, the years have been long
Since I last listened your lullaby song:
Sing, then, and unto my soul it shall seem
Womanhood’s years have been only a dream.
Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,
With your light lashes just sweeping my face,
Never hereafter to wake or to weep;
Rock me to sleep, mother, – rock me to sleep!
