Mother’s Day is an important one, because it gives you the opportunity to show your Mum how much you care. You could take her out for a meal or have her over for coffee and cake, but a thoughtful gift really highlights how much she means to you. Here are some suggestions…
Which Mum doesn’t deserve a massage or facial treat? A voucher from one of Auckland’s best beauty spas is a great gift, which you know she’ll love - and is also a perfect gift for expecting Mums! Some of our favourite spas and beauty clinics include Exhibit Beauty in Epsom, East Day Spa in the Sky City Hotel, and Isis Spa in Newmarket.
Most women love receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and it can cheer up event the greyest of days. There are many florists dotted around Auckland including Nina and Co Ponsonby. You could also buy Mum a bright and colourful pot plant, so that the love lasts much longer. Try Kings Plant Barn and Palmers Garden World for a great variety of plants.
Chocolate makes a great gift idea – especially if it’s made with love from La Maison du Chocolat on the shore. Check out their Mother’s Day selection of delectable goody gifts guaranteed to please any Mum. See the special events section on their website.
For top quality hand creams, body care and more, French company L’Occitane has what your Mum needs to feel beautiful and regenerated. Crabtree & Evelyn is also a lovely choice for skin care, bath and beauty goods and yummy smelly candles. There are outlets in Takapuna and Newmarket.
Fashion & Accessories
Smith & Caughey’s is a great destination to browse for a gift for Mum. There’s a huge collection of beauty products and fashion accessories from makeup to scarves, jewellery and handbags. Located in Newmarket and Queen Street.
For the Home
For top quality homeware and accessories Living and Giving have a great array of gifts on offer from cooking products to quirky new ideas. Acquitions stores in Sylvia Park, Albany and St Lukes also offer something lovely for the home, as do Briscoes Stores Auckland wide.
