Spend Time with Mum This Mother's Day
Author: Olivia - F&F Date Posted:25 April 2019
Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to thank your mum. Every mum is different; some appreciate flowers and chocolate; some love a decent sleep-in (and breakfast in bed!), and some prefer spending some quality time with their family.
At Flora & Fauna, we have a huge range of ethical goodies for mums to indulge in: candles, essential oils, perfume, bath salts and chocolate will always be appreciated… even if it’s not on Mother’s Day!
But we all know that most mums cherish the time spent with family above all else. New experiences will always make memories, so why not treat mum to something different this Mother’s Day? We’ve put together a few ideas to give you some inspiration!
Take her out for breakfast or lunch
Bonding over great food and coffee (or wine) will always be a great option for a Mother’s Day treat. Choose a location that she knows and loves - or try a new place for a completely different experience. Make sure you pay for her meal and treat her to dessert!
Not sure where to go? Try resources like Broadsheet to find the perfect café, restaurant or bar for your Mother’s Day outing. If you are in Sydney looking for vegan restaurants here is a very handy guide.
Explore some local markets
Markets are the perfect place to find local designers, unique gifts and fresh produce. It’s also a great way to spend time with your mum and buy her a gift as well. Depending on what your mum is into, there’s bound to be plenty of markets to suit her interests.

Attend a class or workshop + learn a new skill
Dancing, painting, weaving, gardening, cooking, pottery… the list is endless! Have a chat to your mum and see if she'd be interested in learning a new skill with you. It doesn't matter if you both suck at it the first time! It can be such a fun and rewarding experience to learn a new skill with a loved one. Depending on what you do, it can be an excellent activity for the whole family to enjoy.
Take Mum on a picnic + a stroll through the Botanical Gardens
What better way to celebrate Mother's Day than a gourmet picnic and a stroll through the Botanical Gardens? It's the perfect time to demonstrate your picnic packing skills; remember to bring plenty of snacks! It's also important to pack items like water bottles, cutlery, bags and containers – shop F&F’s reusable items here. Don’t forget sunscreen!
Go on a winery tour or wine tasting event
If your mum is a wine lover, treat her tastebuds to an afternoon of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and some delicious gourmet food. Escape the bustling city and enjoy some beautiful landscapes while you’re at it! Book a wine tasting event or winery tour near you.
Whatever you choose to do for mum on Mother’s Day, make sure she has a fun and relaxing day! Remember – your mum will cherish the time you spend with her more than anything else.
