Sure, getting Mum a super cute present for, say, under $50 is an easy way to make her Mum's Day special, but why just stick to material things when you can get her a trip away to a destination she's been aching to go to? There are excellent weekend away options around Sydney that won't break the bank and make her feel super special.
If your mum’s idea of fun involves sandy shores and morning swims, then why not explore Australia’s naturally rugged coastlines on the famous Bondi Beach? If your mum is a Bondi Rescue fanatic, and lover of Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid, ‘Bondi Dawn Patrol’ will score your brownie points for a long time to come.
Begin with a sunrise at South Bondi, walk along the sand and hear stories and fun facts about the beach, take part in a surf safety lesson and hit the water for a body surf before enjoying coffee and brekkie at the best local café with the one and only Reidy. See where to stay here.
She'll need a beach bag, though, so think about getting her a beach appropriate one like this! See it on BHG Shop.
The art-loving Mum
For the mum who has a passion for the arts, brightening up her world in colour is the way to go. The Artist Weaver invites you to Tempe local, Sky’s, Art Deco studio and where you’ll find yourself nestled among an array of yarns and art works.
Hear Sky’s story with you and enter the world of weaving. Unleash the artist within, with a free reign to delve into the plethora of materials in Sky’s studio to make your very own custom wall hanging. See where to stay, here.
She'll need something to sketch her notes and doodles into, so grab her a new notebook while you're at it, too! Get it on BHG Shop.
The food-loving Mum
Warm your mum’s heart through her stomach this Mother’s Day, and let her delight all her senses with a Cabramatta Food Odyssey Experience of a lifetime with Angie Hong – renowned Vietnamese restaurateur who started the famous Thanh Binh, and Mother of chef Dan Hong from Mr Wong, El Loco and Ms. G’s.
An ambassador for Vietnamese food, Angie will take you on a journey to discover the best places to shop and eat in Cabramatta - so bring your cooler and shopping bag! Start with Vietnamese coffee and Banh Mi, visit her favourite butcher and grocer, learn where she buys her favourite ingredients and find out the secret tips behind her cooking, before enjoying a delicious two course lunch at her very own restaurant, Thanh Binh, established in 1993. See here for where to stay.
She'll need an appetite for this idea! Get her a teapot for that soothing, digestive peppermint tea afterwards! Get it on BHG Shop.
