The best ways to spoil mum this Mother’s Day

Sunday 01 May, 2022

While mums are amazing and deserve the best every day of the year, Mother's Day is an opportunity to show her just how much you appreciate her.

This year, why not spoil mum and support local businesses while you're at it? Grab some gourmet ingredients and treat her to a homemade brunch or lunch; pick up a thoughtful pressie; book a pamper session or take her for a leisurely meal at a local cafe or restaurant.

Treat mum to home-cooked brunch or lunch

If a brunch or lunch at home is something your mum would appreciate, shopping for produce from local foodstores can make the occasion even more meaningful. Presenting your food at a beautifully styled table is another way to show your love and create the ultimate celebration at home.

From perfectly poached eggs and fluffy pancakes to a delicious lunch with all the trimmings, Woolworths has all the top tips on what to make for mum, along with all the ingredients you need in one place. Grab a bouquet while you’re there – and check out this guide on how to keep flowers fresh beyond Mother’s Day.

Or when only the best will do, stock up on supplies at 1888 Certified. Cook up a storm for Mother’s Day lunch with this hearty Harissa Crusted Rack of Lamb With Vegetables or a sensational Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder With Kalamata Olives.

To complement your meal, raise a glass to mum with a refreshing bubbly, a fabulously fruity cocktail or a crisp rosé. Dan Murphy’s has a guide to making your own cocktails and, of course, all the best local and international tipples for you and your mum to enjoy.

Pick the perfect present or pamper session

When it comes to Mother’s Day, Zjoosh Double Bay has it all, from luxurious lounge and leisurewear to the prettiest jewellery and homewares. Drop in to the Kiaora Place store and pick up an exquisite gift that will continue to delight her long after Mother's Day.

Choose from stylish gifts like this gorgeous cashmere to wrap up in as the weather cools, a selection of fragrant goodies from the bath and body range or some beautiful scented candles or ceramics to liven up the living room.

Mud Australia also has a covetable range of modern homewares that every stylish mum would be proud to put on show. In a gorgeous array of colours and designs, a gift from Mud is both functional and makes a striking addition to any table, shelf or sideboard. If she appreciates flowers, go the extra mile by buying a bunch of blooms and presenting them in a gorgeous keepsake vase.

For the ultimate in self-care, why not book mum in (or even better, go together) for a manicure, pedicure or spa session. She’ll look like a million dollars and feel even better.

Enjoy a meal at her favourite local restaurant

Surprising mum with someone else’s cooking can often be the best gift of all. Take her to a favourite local restaurant for a leisurely meal with the family, but be sure to reserve a table as early as possible as venues book out quickly on Mother’s Day.
