Make mum feel special!
If you ask us, Mother’s Day is one of the most important calendar events of the year. Celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May, Aussies all over the country drop everything to show their appreciation for the mothers, guardians, maternal bonds and important women in their lives.
The Australian tradition of Mother’s Day was started by Sydney woman, Janet Heyden, back in 1924. Whilst visiting a friend in a local women’s nursing home, she met many lonely mothers who had either been abandoned or forgotten by their families. Inspired by what she saw, Janet rounded up support from local schools and businesses to donate gifts and quality time, in a move to bring cheer and joy to these women’s lives.
Today, the tradition lives on, the second Sunday of May bringing with it Mother’s Day gifts, well wishes and plenty of love for mums everywhere. But what kind of Mother’s Day gift do you get the woman who seemingly has it all? One thing we can say for sure is that mothers love a good homemade gift. A handmade card, filled with all the reasons you love and appreciate her, and a big old ‘Happy Mother’s Day!’, can’t be beat. And if she sheds a tear or two,you know you’ve done good.
Gorgeous gifts to suit every kind of mum Why not turn the tables and treat mum to a home-cooked breakfast in bed, complete with French toast, fresh OJ and a bunch of flowers? Chrysanthemums are often the Mother’s Day bouquet of choice, thanks to their stunning range of colours and seasonal availability. And of course, the word ends in ‘mum’! If your mum’s more of a fancy Sunday brunch type, book a table at her favourite restaurant or café and let the brownie points roll on in.
If your mum is a total gym junkie, fuel her passion with stylish activewear, or a pass to her favourite fitness class. If she’s more of a foodie, who’s always tinkering away in the kitchen, pick up some kitchen accessories, or a cookbook by her favourite celebrity chef. If you’ve got a little more cash to splash, jewellery is always a winning gift. And if you choose carefully, it’s something that will last a lifetime.
