Show your appreciation to the special women in your life this Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9. It’s time to celebrate our mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, guardians, pet-mums, and mother figures by spoiling them with gifts.
With last year’s Mother’s Day spent in lockdown, now is the moment to make up for lost time and celebrate twice as much this year. Over the next six pages find Mornington Peninsula Magazine’s top ideas to make sure Mum knows just how special she is.
Shower your loved one with locally made candles and skin care, or take her out on a shopping spree for a new outfit or giftware. Book in a beauty treatment or wellness experience so she can bask in some overdue ‘me’ time. Organise a decadent meal out at a restaurant or café she hasn’t experienced as yet. Wrap up a collection of quality linen for dining and bedding – and a fresh pair of pyjamas to match. Visit a place of interest with activities that people of all ages will enjoy for some good old-fashioned family fun. Plan a walk through a flourishing garden or tranquil beach with a surprise picnic afterwards. Pick up a basket of local produce to create a masterpiece in the kitchen for all to share as you celebrate everything she does for you unconditionally.
Whether you’re planning to treat her with a handmade card, flowers, chocolates or gift vouchers, make sure you honour Mum this Mother’s Day.
