Sexxy-Shoe, the perfume in a shoe.

If your mum loves perfume and shoes (and who doesn't?) she can now have both.

Sexxy-Shoe is a perfume in a shoe-shaped bottle that comes in red or black and is sure to please Mum.

Choose the perfume and shoe colour to suit your mum's personality and preference.

Red Shoo is light, floral and carefree, while Black Stiletto is sultry and powerful, suitable for evening and special occasions.

The good news is that just for Mother's Day, the perfumes are specially priced, so head to the website now and buy it for Mum. Or for yourself.

Sexxy Shoo Black Stiletto plus Sexxy Shoo Red Shoo plus Him toiletry for men, valued at $235 is now only $80, plus postage and handling.

For gifts with a difference, check out the variety at Platform 72.

The brainchild of director Juliet Rosser, Platform 72 is a hybrid art gallery and retail store showcasing an eclectic mix of Australian artworks and designer homewares.

Artworks are sold online and can be shipped across Australia.

I particularly love the Byrne and Love scented soy wax candles, Weapons of Mastication apron and tea towel and the stylish Rapp scarves.

Currently, their stores are in Darlinghurst and Chippendale in Sydney.
