What do you get someone who is always there for you, always doing things for you and always putting others before herself? We’re not sure you can ever repay your mum for all the ways she’s enriched your life, but you can definitely give it a good try.
This Mother’s Day, treat your mum to a little luxury… and your company.
WHAT TO BUY
A minute to relax – that’s probably at the top of your mum’s wish list. A lovely, luxurious robe will help her feel pampered at home. The organic cotton fabric is heavenly.

Finding time to read a book can be a bit of a luxury for mums. She may need more encouragement to take time out for herself and snuggle into bed with a good read at night. How to tempt her? With the new Kobo Glo HD. It’s easy to use, it holds shelf-loads of books but doesn’t clutter her home. Done!
Mum’s are always on the go, driving here, there and everywhere for their kids. These new Havaianas sneakers are cool, comfortable and stylish in one. She’ll love them.
No woman can ever have too many knits. And it’s hard to beat a beautiful knit from Country Road. We have a sweet spot for the polka dot one, but there’s so many to choose from we’re sure you’ll find the perfect match for your mum.

WHAT TO DO
The Finders Keeps Markets are among our favourite. Not only do they have a great selection of unique and clever design and art stalls, they’ve got food and now beauty products by the plenty. Wandering the aisles of this stall is a lovely way to spend Mother’s Day. If your mum takes a fancy to anything, make sure you shout her a present of two. Then after you’ve worked up an apetite, grab a bite from one of the fresh produce food stalls. The food here is amazing.

Oysters, burgers and a complimentary Belvedere Vodka cocktail. The Morrison are definitely on to a winner with their Mother’s Day special. The vibe is fun and relaxed, the food is fabulous, and did we mention mum gets a complimentary cocktail. We know, we’ll see you there.
