Mother's Day Guide to Tailored Gifting

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for the perfect present to make her feel extra special this year, then cast your eyes over our guide to tailored gifting.

Whether her style is colourful or minimalist, edgy, chic or traditional, Market Traders Naheda Hassan (Naheda’s Choice Turkish Delight) and Emma Whiting (Flawless Flowers) show just how easy it is to customise your gift to suit mum’s unique taste.

And don’t forget, we’ll be delivering on Mother’s Day through our new Food Lovers’ Direct home delivery service, so be sure to avoid the Market rush and place your orders from home after 4 pm on Friday the 8th of May and before 4 pm on Saturday 9th May, and mum will receive her goodies on the special day.

For the mum who loves colour…

Emma says, “pops of purples, pinks and reds are always popular for Mother’s Day bouquets. For a longer-lasting option, a mixture of Asiatic Lilies and local foliage will remind mum you’re thinking of her for weeks to come.”

Naheda recommends adding a Variety Turkish Delight Bites Gift Box to really brighten up her day. Plus, she’ll get to taste a great selection of Turkish Delights… is there anything better?

For the mum who likes to keep it simple…

Emma warns, “not to mix different types of flowers and colours. It doesn’t matter if your arrangement is big or small, as long it’s neat and simple.”

If mum’s all about the simple things in life, then Naheda’s 3 Rosewater Turkish Delight Log Gift Box is the gift for her. Simple to the eye, yes, but it’s the most popular flavour for a reason, trust us!

For the mum with a little edge…

Emma suggests, ‘using interesting foliage with an accent of flowers. We love the Victorian Anthuriums for a pop of colour and some red Amaranthus for texture and depth.”

The intricately patterned Chocolate Coated Turkish Delight make this Gift Box Naheda’s top choice for the mum with edgy, artistic style. Think a delicious combination of their most popular Turkish Delights dipped in 57% Vegan Dark Belgian Chocolate.

For the traditional mum…

Emma notes that, ‘the traditional Mother’s Day Flower is the Chrysanthemum, which should be combined with other flowers that also have the same long lifespan. We love the Victorian grown Ornamental Kale and some Carnations for a contrast in colour.’

When it comes to keeping it classic, Naheda suggests opting for the Traditional Rose Turkish Delight and Rose Petal Gift Box. Elegantly presented and sure to impress – this one’s almost too pretty to eat!

For the chic mum…

Emma thinks, ‘it’s more about the arrangement and the wrapping than the flower types. Something with a strong forward face and some height in the accent flowers is on-trend. The wrapping is low at the front, so the flowers are on show and ready for Instagram before they hit the water!’

If mum’s all about style and sophistication, then she’ll love tucking into Naheda’s Speciality Turkish Delight Gift Box, which is a combination of the most popular Turkish Delights garnished with exquisite ingredients and coatings (blueberry and choc pebble, anyone?). It’s a little bit extra and a whole lot of yum!

For more Mother’s Day floral arrangements, head to Delivery cut-off 11 am AEST Saturday 9 May.
