They’re your first friend and your best friend, by your side through thick and thin, and with Mother’s Day fast approaching and a lot of us not being able to visit our mums in person, it’s time to lock in plans to celebrate your mum and her lifelong commitment to supporting and loving you.
Since it’s better to be prepared than have nothing planned at all, we’ve found a bunch of ways to spoil mum from a distance this Mother Day’s on the Gold Coast.
Send Her A Box Of Locally-Made Chocolate Pralines
Cute, playful and ridiculously decadent, Little Cocoa’s Mother’s Day edition of artisan chocolate pralines are totally what mum needs in her life right now. Coated in rose gold bling and leopard print, these morsels of deliciousness are filled with flavours like espresso martini, macadamia ganache and a tangy passionfruit and white chocolate. Yum! You can either pick up and drop them off to mum yourself, or opt for Gold Coast delivery.
Pamper Her With A Bathhouse Package
It’s been a whirlwind month, and no doubt your mum has felt the stress of it all too. Give her the chance to switch off and relax with The Bathhouse’s ultimate self-care package, designed to bring a piece of the Gold Coast spa into your home. Included in the Rest and Rest Bundle ($95) she’ll find, an organic and calming tea blend, Amare Alchemy Temple Mist and a Greenhouse Organic Coffee Scrub. Order yours for mum here.
Cheers Over Cocktails In Iso
Can’t see your mum in the flesh this year but still want to cheers her for everything she does for you? Local cocktail connoisseurs Mr.Consistent deliver lip-smacking cocktail mixers across the Gold Coast. Post a pack to mum and a pack to you, so you can whip up a margarita over a Zoom session and get the party started from a distance.
Order Breakfast From Her Favourite Cafe
Not only will a restaurant quality breakfast supersede pancake mix or burnt eggs any day, but it will also support all the local businesses doing it tough right now. Whether Mum is a sweet or savoury breakfast person, get your meal as well as drinks delivered, and forget all about prep and cleaning up. Jump on Bopple to see who’s still open for takeaway in your area.
Get A DIY Pottery Kit Delivered
If you’ve got a creative Mum, then check out this awesome local DIY Pottery Kit you can get delivered. She can pop the kettle on, switch on her favourite tunes and sculpt and mould to her heart’s content.
Say “You’re The Best” With Blooms
Obviously there’s no gift like a fresh bunch of blooms finding their way to your doorstep, so do mum a solid and order a stunning arrangement from the best Gold Coast flower delivery services. You might not be able to visit her in person, but these will be a vibrant reminder of how much she means to you.
Make Her Sunday Sweet With A Box Of Local Cookies
If you're really scratching your head as to what you could give your mum, you really can't go wrong with some incredible, locally-baked cookies from Gold Coast Cookie Co. Spoil her with a varied selection, choosing from the likes of white choc macadamia, s’mores—filled with cinnamon marshmallow and Belgian chocolate—or the Biscoff, loaded with creamy cookie butter. And hot tip, flick her a text and tell her to heat them in the microwave for 15 seconds before eating. She’ll cry of happiness.
Give Her The Gift Of Cheese
Brighten up your iso snacks and food routines with a delivery of a stack of cheese, perhaps the best medium for tastebud exploration in these unprecedented times. Pull out your best cheese board and keep Mum busy while you set up an array of stinky, hard, soft or blue cheeses, along with crackers, pastes and other antipasto must-haves. Or just send one to her and one to you while you meet virtually to decide your favourites. You’ll find everywhere to order from here.
Grab Restaurant Vouchers For Post-Corona
A gift in the future is just as good as a gift in the present, that’s how the saying goes, right? If Mother’s Day is too much of a whirlwind, or her favourite Gold Coast restaurant has temporarily closed its doors, get Mum excited for the day everything is lifted with a voucher to a restaurant or hotel. Not only will it award you brownie points for forward thinking, but it’s a helping hand to businesses that are struggling through all the chaos.
