Need a Mother’s Day gift for the amazing women in your life? Why not purchase your gift from a local business? We have listed the businesses we know of in the Macedon Ranges and surrounds. Feel free to message or comment if we’ve missed your favourite and we’ll add them in. We want to support as many local businesses as we can.
Flowers: A stereotypical gift, I know, but often a winner. I know I love a bunch of fresh flowers any time for any reason or no reason. (This is a hint if my other half is reading this!). Check out: Gisborne Cottage Flowers, Gisborne Flower Shoppe, Macedon Ranges Florist, About Flowers, State of Nature and the Hidden Florist.
Bags and purses: Are you even a mum if you don’t have a purse, handbag or travel bag to hold those essentials like bandaids, toy cars, snacks and water bottles? Check out: Cool Clutch, Pact Co. and Three Little Rams.
Wine and other drinks: Stop Mum’s whine with a wine or whatever tickles her fancy, whether that is great quality coffee, beautiful tea, hot chocolate, kombucha, cider, champagne or beer. Check out: Gisborne Peak Winery, Tea of Earth.
Homewares: It’s the perfect time to reorganise, declutter and decorate the home. Check out: Gisborne Village Homewares, Riddell’s Creek Convenience Store, Woodend General Store and perhaps enlist The Lifestyle Managers to assist with the decluttering part.
Food: Does Mum love a good meal? Organise a beautiful brunch, lunch or dinner out, or package up some of her favourites. We know many who love: Kuzu Izakaya, Gisborne Peak Winery, Baringo Food and Wine Co’s Provedore, OMG Decadent Donuts, 3 Little Pigs, and don’t forget our fantastic local markets, where you can find amazing honey, jams, olives, wines, cider, just to name a few delish edible items.
Classes: Invest in a class or two for Mum. There are many amazing fitness studios, gyms and wellness centres in the Ranges. Give your mum the gift of health and vitality. Check out: Sunranges Qoya, Ranges Personal Training, Reflection Wellness, Pilates Plus, Yogaflow with Jo, Change It Up Training.
Photos: We are yet to find a mum who doesn’t melt at a cute photo of her brood. Whether you get prints, make a calendar, frame a super special pic or have a photo printed on coasters or a t-shirt, Mum will love the effort you have gone to. Check out: Maddisons Gisborne, Magnum Signs, and Country Chic HD. To organise a photo shoot, try one of our favourites, Plumbelly Photography, Photobaby or Maple Gallery Photography.
Something different: Every Mum is different. You know your mum best. She might like; crafty items from The Craft Table; some health related gifts from Gisborne Health Essentials; gorgeous gift packs from Sensory Wellness; a beautiful plant or gardening gear from Riddells Creek Nursery; a personalised items by Laser Blanks; a game to play with the family from Boardgame Goblin. If you are not sure what to get Mum, a hamper might do the trick. Check out: Macedon Ranges Hampers and The Picnic Sisters.
Give the gift that keeps on giving! Another great idea is getting Mum a Macedon Ranges Mumma keyring. With the keyring, Mum can access a whole range of discounts and deals. It comes with a $25 Intimo voucher, a free upsize every time she has her coffee or tea at 3 Little Pigs, $10 off Cool Clutch bags every time, 10% off at the Craft Table in Gisborne, 10% off photos and framing at Maddisons, 10% off The Lifestyle Managers products and services (give some of Mum’s to do list items to someone else to do!), organise a beautiful photoshoot for Mum via one of our photographers, she can utilise the discounts on yoga and personal training classes, as well as saving when booking travel with Travel Moore, saving on Stress Free Super Mum‘s self paced programs. Keyrings are just $20 – you can buy one online here, or at The Craft Table in Gisborne, or Laser Blanks in Lancefield.
We hope we’ve given you a few ideas. Don’t leave it too late to order your pressies, especially if you want them delivered. As a mum, I can honestly say yours will appreciate the effort, whatever you give her and some kind words in a card never goes astray either.
Happy Mother’s Day, mums! I hope you are spoiled on your special day!
