Fun ways to spoil Mum on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world, but did you know there have been rituals and celebrations of mothers since history began being recorded? There’s a very good reason for that – mothers have always given their all to their children and loved them in a way that deserves celebration, and a whole lot of thanks.

So how do you thank someone for all the love; for guiding us through childhood; for being there for us no matter what? How do you tell Mum how much you love her this Mother’s Day?

It’s a big ask, but Camberwell Junction is packed with great Mother’s Day ideas she’ll love! Here are some fun ways you can spoil Mum:

Make it a Mother’s Day to remember

Mother’s Day lasts the whole day, and the gift she will treasure the most is a Mother’s Day spent with you in Camberwell Junction! The precinct is packed with fun things to see and do – so why not spend the whole day exploring, eating and shopping?

You can make the most of your Sunday in Camberwell Junction by starting the morning with a treasure hunt at Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market. Afterwards, stop for a delicious brunch at one of Camberwell Junction’s fabulous cafes.

Prospect Espresso serves a spectacular brunch and is close by, Legacy is renowned for their beautiful pancakes and smoothies, and Rumour Has It does the simple things well, like classic smashed avocado and chilli folded eggs.

Now that you’re recharged, it’s time to take Mum shopping. Check out Camberwell Junction’s fashion boutiques and homewares stores, which will inspire and delight, and let Mum pick something special to take home.

Finish off Mother’s Day by taking in a film at the gorgeously historic Rivoli Cinemas, where catching a flick is all about the glamour and experience.

Spoil Mum with sweet treats

The gift of chocolate is a Mother’s Day tradition, but this Mother’s Day take it up a notch with some exquisite, sweet treats from Camberwell Junction that are as yummy as they are works of art.

Choclatte claims the title for the best hot chocolate in town, while The Chocolate Box has an extensive range of gift boxes, hampers, and individual chocolate delights that make the perfect gift.

For the ultimate sweet experience, map out your own ‘Sweet Treat Crawl’, working your way through Camberwell Junction’s patisseries and bakeries. Make sure you include Bonbons, Glenferrie Crepe Cafe, Laurent, Provence Artisan Bakers, Penny for Pound, and Woodfrog Bakery.

Alternatively, why not create your own opulent high tea experience at home? Stock up on pastries, breads, cakes and slices, then head down to T2 Tea for a lovely array of teas, and 1961 Coffee Roasters for some fresh, rich coffee. Then, all that’s left to do is assemble!

Say it with flowers

Whatever gift you’re giving this Mother’s Day, adding a bunch of beautiful blooms from a Camberwell Junction florist is an absolute essential.

Camberwell Florist, located at Camberwell Fresh Food Market, stocks the freshest blooms and seasonal bouquets; Eufloria can create a chic and stylish floral arrangement; choose a French garden style bouquet from Monet de Fleur; or surprise Mum with coffee and flowers from Victoria’s Flower Garden and Cafe.

Mother’s Day gift guide

  • Books provide hours of entertainment, and whether Mum is into mysteries, biographies, or the latest must-read fiction, with the wide selection offered by Cook & Young Booksellers, you’re sure to find the perfect page-turner.
  • She’s experienced a lot in life and has a lot to share – for mothers who love journalling, an exceptional quality leather notebook from Paper Republic is the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
  • Perhaps Mum enjoys zooming with the grandkids, maybe she likes reading the news on a device, or perhaps she’s just discovered podcasts – a new, modern phone, tablet or laptop from Camberwell Junction’s JB Hi-Fi will make doing all the things she loves easier and more enjoyable.
  • A special little something from one of Camberwell Junction’s homeware stores guarantees she will think of you every day. Choose from a range of kitchenware or tableware from Minimax or opt for something a little more sentimental from Provincial Home Living.
