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 during this difficult time.
Flowers: Stereotypical, 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.
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: Wine O’Clock, Gisborne Peak Winery, Tea of Earth.
Clothes: She may be in trackies at the moment but Mum will surely still love a good shop and something to look forward to wearing out. Try: Style 25 and Camilla on Piper, Intimo lingerie and clothing via Sarah.
Food: Many of us have been craving going out for dinner. Order some food in or buy a voucher for a celebratory dinner when isolation ends. We know many who love: Kuzu Izakaya, Gisborne Peak Winery, Baringo Food and Wine Co’s Provedore, Small Farmer’s United, OMG Decadent Donuts, 3 Little Pigs.
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: Reflection Wellness, Bella Femme Studio, Pilates Plus, Yogaflow with Jo, Change It Up Training.
Books: What better time to read a book? Many bookstores deliver to your door. Give a great read and then allow Mum some uninterrupted time to fully enjoy it. Check out: New Leaves, Aesop’s Attic, Red Door Books.
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: Gisborne Photoshop, Magnum Signs, Autocopy Gisborne, and Country Chic HD.
Something different: Every Mum is different. You know your mum best. She might like; some health related gifts from Alter Your Health in Kyneton; gorgeous gift packs from Sensory Wellness and Nude Nourishment; a beautiful plant or gardening gear from Riddells Creek Nursery; organic soy candles from MacKenzie Maya; 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.
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 that your 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!
