What Are The Mother's Day Ideas Styled To Suit Your Mum?
Mother's Day is almost upon us, and we always love to find the perfect present for our Mums. Here are some ideas, a little different to the norm, styled with your mum's interest at heart, or something you can do together?
If your mum loves theatre or ballet:
1. The Russian National Ballet in "The Nutcracker"
After the hugely successful Australian tour of Swan Lake last year, we are honoured to have The Russian National Ballet Theatre return to Australia with the world's greatest classic ballet. One that would be great to take all the family and enjoy the exhilarating and magical journey of The Nutcracker.
2. A Gift Voucher for the Melbourne Theatre Company
The Melbourne Theatre Company is renowned for fantastic shows your mum will love. They have over 20 shows to choose from each year and all are brilliant.
Either purchase a membership or tickets.
If your mum loves to cook:
How about spending a day together with a course.
1. The Abbotsford Convent - Bread Making Workshop
This one day course in the beautiful Abbotsford Convent is simple and fun, with the aroma of freshly baked bread, where you will have fun learning to go home and experiment with your bread.
They will talk you through the bread baking process, explaining each step along the way and it will allow you to replicate at home for the enjoyment of friends and family.
2. Cooking Course
There are many on the market, but this is one we love.
Enjoy a day together at Otao Kitchen, in Richmond. Choose from a Thai, Vietnamese, Balinese or Japanese cooking class, or a private tour of the Melbourne market.
If Your Mum Loves Melbourne
For over 2 decades, Melbourne Walking Tours have been operating a variety of highly researched, informative tours There are a variety of tours available. One I love is the Melbourne Lanes and Arcades. I learnt more about Melbourne during this tour than I ever have. It was fun and informative. A wonderful day out, where we were educated on different buildings we didn't know existed, played 2 up in a alleyway, and ended with a nice glass of red at one of the bars in AC/DC lane.
Other tours include: Murder Mystery, Op Shops By The Bay and Queen Victoria Market Tour.
If Your Mum Loves Chocolate
Experience the sweet side of Melbourne together with a Chocolate Lovers Tour. So many different locations to enjoy. The cost is low, with the express tour at $39.00.
If Your Mum Loves The Movies
Arthouse Movie Theatres show many different types of movies your mum will love, and most of them allow you to enjoy a glass of wine while viewing the show, which I am sure your mum will love.
There are some great locations to enjoy a movie and lunch together, then peruse the gorgeous book shops that are often close to the locations.
Happy Mother's Day to all mums. We hope you have a fabulous day with your families. Thank you for all you do. Mums Rock! Where would we be without them?
