Mother's Day Gift Guide - ideas to help you
Shop Good, Gift Good, Do Good and Feel Good

Welcome to Greatest Good's Australian Mother's Day Gift Guide - where we help you find great gifts for your mum, mother-in-law, grandmother or other motherly figures in your life, that also create positive social impact and change.

We know times are tough, but our Mother's Day Gift Guide helps you keep living your values and using your purchasing power to support for-purpose organisations (social enterprises, charities and not for profits) tackling social, environmental and community change. We help you use the money you are planning to spend  to do your greatest good. Most gifts, hampers and products are less than $100, with nothing priced over $250. Every purchase and donation helps amazing purpose-driven organisations to be more impactful with the work they do. You not only get a great gift, but you also create a ripple of positive change. 

We help you to Shop Good (by your values), Gift Good (gifting amazing hampers and products that will be treasured), Do Good (you and your gift recipient will know that every purchase generates true impact and tackles social and environmental problems) and Feel Good (well, how could you not after all of that). 

If you're time poor and need a hand finding the right gifts for everyone on your list, we've made it easy for you, giving you lots of categories that align with your values and budget:

- Gifts under $25 / $50 / $75 / $100 - to help you budget

- Gifts featuring indigenous foods and products

- Gifts for foodies

- Gifts for eco-conscious consumers

- Gourmet food and luxury gift hampers

- Pamper hampers

- Gift ideas for the person who doesn't want anything

Mother's Day gifts for eco-conscious consumers

It’s easy to find gifts and hampers for the eco-warriors and eco-conscious. You can choose from hampers that encourage sustainable living or pampering, or individual gifts. Our personal favourite – the organic cotton reusable produce bags. We use them for fruit and vegies, instead of plastic bags. They can also be used as laundry bags and to group and separate items in your suitcase. Hint – buy a few of the 4-packs, as once you start using them, you’ll wish you had more. We have more eco-friendly options to reduce your environmental footprint and support organisations increase their social and environmental impact - it's win/win!

Mother's Day gifts for gourmet and luxury lovers

The warmth and wellness hamper is jam-packed full of gourmet goodies and personal items to warm the cockle of her heart as the colder months approach.

Mother's Day gifts to pamper

Who doesn’t like to be pampered and appreciated? We’ve got a range of options in both our hampers and health and beauty sections and have highlighted some of them below, from self-care to wellbeing, to total love box sets. Of course, you can always mix and match the products from various organisations to make your own hampers.

If beauty is not your thing, we've also got coffee, tea and hot chocolate gift hampers and chai and tea and other food offerings for you to buy individually or combine to make you own food pamper hamper. Why not add the SisterWorks bamboo coffee cup or the bright and cheery tribal coaster set to avoid the coffee stains?

Mother's Day gifts for those who don't want anything

Do you want to show your appreciation to someone who doesn’t want anything? Or are you wondering what to get the person who has everything? We are proud that the Greatest Good Australian Christmas Gift Guide lets you support Australian registered charities making a difference.

Unlike many donation sites, we don't take commission from donations made on the Greatest Good ecosystem. Your meaningful donation on behalf of your gift recipient helps to fund medical research, supports women, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, tackles homelessness, education and employment and so much more. Additional charities and denominations can be found on the Donate page.
