Mother’s Day gift guide: Spoil your mum with a special present from Paper Republic

It seems like an impossible task: how can a simple gift on Mother’s Day possibly thank your mother for everything she does for you, or reflect just how much she means to you?

As a premium gift shop located in the heart of Camberwell Junction, Paper Republic understands that when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, the best mother deserves quality and luxury.

We have a wide range of unique, handcrafted, quality Mother’s Day gifts that will fill your mum’s home and life with art and beauty that will be treasured forever.

Here’s our Mother’s Day gift guide for the mother who appreciates quality, luxury and beauty.


Aprons can make a wonderful gift for your mum, and we’ve got a great range of bright, colourful and elegant designs to choose from.

The Michel Design Works aprons, with their distinctive, signature prints are absolute works of art. The Cavallini & Co. range, identifiable by their distinct vintage designs, have an adjustable strap and a convenient double pocket to hold your utensils. For something bright and bold, opt for an apron from the Sooshichacha range which look like they would be at home in any museum of modern art.

All the aprons are made from high quality cotton and feature adjustable waist and neck ties for the perfect fit. They are a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for the mother who loves to cook and appreciates true quality.

Tea towels

No mum can ever have too many tea towels and a designer tea towel from Paper Republic tells your mother that only the best will do.

Dog-loving mums will adore the range of tea towels from Sweet William, which feature a range of different dog breeds. These tea towels are made from luxuriously thick organic cotton and are individually screen printed.

Or go with an Australian option with our gorgeous range of La La Land tea towels. Designed in Australia, these premium quality cotton-linen blend tea towels feature designs inspired by Australian flora and fauna, as well as traditional Indigenous artwork.

Many matching tea towel and apron designs are available across the Michel Design Works, Ulster Weaver and Cavallini & Co. ranges, so why not give your mum the set?
