What Mums Really Want For Mother’s Day

Treat mum to something luxurious, something comfortable, something just for her

As the owner of a beautiful homewares and apparel store, and a mother to four little ones, Maddelin Verso from Tribe Store is well qualified to offer advice on gifts that will make mums feel special this Mother’s Day.

“I am all for giving something that’s just for mum, something she doesn’t have to share and something that makes her feel confident or cosy,” Maddelin said.

“I love things like dressing gowns, and we’ve got a brand new collection from Sage and Clare, they’re Australian designers who use the same print range through their bed linens as their apparel. They use the most beautiful linens and it’s their way of using any left-over linen by turning them into one size fits all dressing gowns.”

With the cooler winter months approaching there are other options from hats, and scarves through to sweats or knits.

“We have a New Zealand label, Sophie Store and we’ve had their woollen caps for winter arrive,” Maddelin explained.


“They’re super cute, especially for someone who likes to exercise in the morning or evening, or just stick it on to cover a bad hair day. They have earthy clothing and really clean, minimal lines and she also does a jewellery collection, so a necklace or ear-ring studs with the kids initials or an M for mum would be a great gift.

“The beautiful scarves have come in, they’re super soft and over-sized so you can really wrap it around your neck, use as a shawl, use as a throw and I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a scarf,” Maddelin said.

For those mums who take a stylish, yet practical approach to their shopping, Ollie Ella Luggy baskets might be a great option.

“They’re the perfect caddy, made of beautiful ethically sourced rattan and great for toting off to Harris Farm Markets or the local farmers market,” Maddelin explained.

“They’re a popular gift and we always wrap them up with a beautiful bow and beautiful dried flowers – and they’re another Australian brand.”

Tribe Store is one of endless Albury CBD shopping destinations offering inspiration for Mother’s Day gifts, where those serving you are relishing the opportunity to spoil their customers after a difficult year of separation.

“I think it’s a lot about connection and just having a stroll of the main streets,” Maddelin observed.

“There’s people about, you can say ‘hi’, go for a shop and have a coffee – I think we’ve all really missed it.”
