Australian publisher Thames & Hudson is our ultimate one-stop shop for coffee table books that are as intriguing as they are beautiful, and they have so many excellent gift options for Mother’s Day!

For mums who have a penchant for interior design and home inspo, pick up a copy of Colour Is Home‘, a divine new book from local interior designer Charlotte Coote, or consider ‘The New Naturalists’, which offers a sticky beak inside the homes of ‘creative collectors. For the more pragmatic interiors enthusiast, it’s hard to go past ‘BuildHer – an empowering book by the Melbourne-based female building collective of the same name, where founders Rebeka Morgan and Kribashini Hannon share their coveted renovation and building expertise (to help kick start your mum’s next renovation project).

If she’s anything like us, the onset of the cooler months probably means your mum is longing for a holiday. In which case, ‘A House Party in Tuscany by Amber Guinness is the perfect present to help transport her to the Italian countryside from the cosy comforts of her living room! The pages of this book are filled with divine recipes, stories, and art from The Arniano Painting School in Tuscany. Dreamy!

If art is her thing, you can’t go past ‘David Hockney: Moving Focus. The panoramic new perspective on the iconic artist charts his rise in the art world, with an extensive look back at over 100 features of his paintings, drawings and photographs.

Meanwhile, any garden enthusiasts can polish their green thumb with ‘Leaf Supply: A guide to keeping happy house plantsor ‘Plantopedia by Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan.

We weren’t lying – there truly is something for everyone!
