Mothers Day Gift Ideas - Blog Hop
The lovely Steph from Bondville has created this lovely Mothers Day Blog Hop for us all to get inspired for Mothers Day. So I am joining bloggers Viv, ish & chiLexi, PottyMouthMama and Steph from Bondville to to share some of my favourite Mothers Day Gift inspiration.  

Mother's Day is a special time for many people, and also can be a really difficult time remembering loved ones that have passed. This is a particularly difficult one for me and my Mum after losing our precious Nan a few months ago. She was 99 years when she passed and a truly amazing and inspirational women. So this Mothers Day we will be keeping it simple and spending time remembering our beautiful Nan. 

As a Mum of two busy little boys, when Mother's Day does come around each year I do love to get spoilt, but I most look forward to time with the family and a little time out to relax and sleep in, or just read a good book in peace. Many of us rush around like crazy during the week juggling the responsibilities of kids, family, and work, so for this year's wishlist I have focused on gift ideas that might encourage quality time together with your mum and maybe a little R&R too. With something to suit all budgets, here is my top picks for all the lovely Mums out there - the home loving Mum, the decorator Mum, the foodie Mum, the adventure Mum, and the bookish Mum. 

1. For the Home Loving Mum - Kara Rosenlund Limited Edition Photography Prints. Photographer, stylist and all round amazing woman Kara Rosenlund has THE most beautiful limited edition photography prints on her online store. Truly beautiful photographs from a truly special lady, I think any home would feel even warmer with one of these on the wall. Something to treasure indeed. Buy online here.

Print Shop Update

2. For the Decorator Mum - Country Style Homes by Victoria Carey. This beautiful new book Country Style Homes is full of stunning images of the prettiest and most charming Australian country homes, drawn from one of my most favourite magazines Country Style with editor Victoria Carey. Full of beautiful imagery and stories of artists, cooks, gardeners, historians, collectors and more this is sure to inspire the decorator Mum indeed. Buy $33.95 online here

3. For the Food Loving Mum - 'Margaret and Me' by Kate Gibbs with Margaret Fulton. As someone who grew up with both my Mum and Nan cooking recipes every week from the classic Margaret Fulton cookbooks, this lovely new book written by a special lady and foodie friend Kate Gibbs is one that is close to my heart and will no doubt be a very popular gift for Mothers Day. Coming out in early May. To follow all of Kate's fabulous foodies adventures, head over to The Kitchen Inc. by Kate Gibbs. For the book Buy $31.95 here. 

4. For the Mum who Needs a Break - Weekend Retreat at The Cottage Kangaroo Valley. Why not spoil mum with a special weekend away. The Cottage in Kangaroo Valley owned and operated by artist Lisa Madigan is the perfect spot for a girls weekend retreat…think red wine by the fire, retail therapy in nearby Berry, and cafe hopping in Kangaroo Valley. This is the perfect place to slow down, chat and stroll in the countryside. Lisa's cottage is now open for bookings, and this could be a perfect gift to surprise Mum. Be sure to mention eat read love when you book. POA.

5. For the Adventurous Mum  -  Glamping it Up. For the more adventurous Mum, booking a special weekend at The Paperbark Camp Luxury Glamping Tents could well be the perfect Winter escape. Imagine spending a night or two in a luxury African style safari tent in the heart of NSW South Coast, the sounds of the bush and the camp fire, luxury beds and linens, and nearby Huskisson for girls shopping and lunching, with spa therapies and amazing food waiting for you back at Paperbark Camp. Pure indulgence indeed, but I guarantee your Mum will walk away feeling so relaxed! P.O.A

For those in Victoria, Happy Glamper in the Mornington Peninsula have the most gorgeous Bell Tents and Airstream Caravans for a weekend retreat (see below) - they will set it all up for you in selected locations on the Mornington Peninsula and all you need to do is turn up, sit down and relax and unwind. Surprise your Mum with a fun Glamping weekend in the country… P.O.A

6. For the Mum with a Sweet Tooth  - High Tea for the Ladies at the new Langham Sydney. An afternoon doing 'High Tea' in style with Mum could be a wonderful way to treat your mum (or yourself) on Mothers Day or in the weeks after. Book an Afternoon with Wedgewood here. From $55pp

7. For the Bookish Mum: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The Night Circus is a beautiful enchanting book that I have just finished reading and I think this would be a lovely gift for the Mum who loves to read fantasy fiction. I have also recently enjoyed Liane Moriarty's books, especially 'The Husbands Secret' and 'Big Little Lies'. The Outlander book series is almost 20 years old now but with the new TV series hitting the box, Outlander has had a well deserved second rise to fame, and is a really fabulous read (and watch!)
