There’s no-one quite like mum. And there’s nothing quite like this month’s give away. We’ve got a hamper overflowing with stylish goodies from our favourite brands to give away, worth more than R7000.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY, with love from GET IT.
Well. Mum certainly is the word this month … with our massive Mother’s Day giveaway hamper. It’s crammed – overflowing – with everything we think would make our mum very happy indeed. And it’s valued at a whopping R7220. Just look what we’ve got …
An on-trend Kubu rectangular basket (R299) from Biggie Best, which is great for storage in your home, and to store all these goodies. Biggie Best has also added a white orchid (R79), from their particularly exceptional collection of faux flowers and plants. Details: volpes.co.za
From Lou Harvey, SA’s homegrown designer and decorator, a Gusset Vanity (R435) and Long Tom Cooler (R460) in the brand new Python print (which is giving the ever-popular Leopard a run for its money). It’s one of the new collection of designs … which also includes iconic paisleys and florals so loved by LH fans. Details: louharvey.co.za
A duo of Densitium Skin Care essentials. This anti-ageing range from French skincare brand SVR is dedicated to slowing down and treating ageing skin (not, Mum, that we think you’re ageing … you’re beautiful!). There’s a Densitium Bi-serum, formulated for the face and neck for the treatment of sagging skin, wrinkles and dryness (R954) and Densitium Crème Riche, which targets dryness, thinning skin, lack of elasticity and loss of definition (R424).

Sunnies for the coolest mum on the block. Our hamper includes a pair of Baker Eyewear sunglasses (R1499), which is exclusively available at Execuspecs … it’s a quality, stylish range for people who see the world differently. Details: execuspecs.co.za
Kids have their school packs. Mum needs a stylish Thule Achiever Backpack 20L (R1399). It has much-needed organisational solutions for mums on the go, protects your laptop, loads of space for your other daily gear, great colours (think Asphalt Camo, Black, Burgundy or Seneca Rock), and is really durable and tough, so built to last in the urban jungle. Details: thulestore.co.za
A bottle of Fluere (R269) … a distilled ‘spirit’ without a trace of alcohol. It’s a blend of botanicals, based on essential oils of juniper, lavender, coriander and lemon peel, and is perfect to create non-alcoholic long drinks and mocktails. For mum, we’ve got the Spiced Cane option, lovely notes of chocolate and coffee with a sweet, complex, earthy palate. Details: available from takealot.co.za
Staying with the non-alcoholic theme (homework nights!), there’s also a bottle of Abstinence (R229) in the basket. Locally produced, sophisticated and showcasing some of Cape Town’s finest indigenous flora, there’s not only no alcohol but also no sugar, no colouring, no flavouring, so it gets full marks from us. Details: available from takealot.co.za
Friday night … so no school lifts in the morning. Time for a G&T. Mum’ll love Bloedlemoen (R395). Pronounced Blue’d Le Moon, it’s an award-winning handcrafted, small-batch local gin made from 10 natural botanicals; a quintessentially South African gin made from the delicious Tarocco blood orange, and proudly boasts as the first blood orange gin in the World. The fruit is sourced locally from our growing partners in the Western Cape of South Africa. Details: Available at takealot.co.za
Mum will think you’ll have whisked her off to a tropical island with this one. She can imagine sitting on a beach, sipping on her Don Papa rum (R499) cocktail. This premium, small-batch, single-island, aged rum from Negros in the Philippines, is aged for seven years to produce a light and fruity, amber coloured rum that is perfect for sipping alone or as the key ingredient in epic cocktails. Details: available from takealot.co.za
And at the end of a long day … a soft, fluffy towel to wrap around you after a long, scented bubble bath. From Volpes, we’ve got a set of Indulge White Towels (R329) … 100 per cent cotton, highly absorbent, super luxurious and with a double-stitched hem for durability. Heaven. Details: volpes.co.za
Whether your mum’s a homemaker or a board member, stressed from no sleep with a toddler or a teen (both, we know, cause sleepless nights), a young new mum or an experienced gran, a careful teetotaller or a lover of exotic cocktails … we know one thing – she’ll be a jolly spoilt mum if you win this hamper for her.
