Fun ways to spoil Mum on Mother’s Day (plus a gift guide)
Article posted: April 17, 2023
Remember when shopping for a gift you knew Mum would treasure forever was as simple as heading down to the Mother’s Day stall with your pocket money at recess?
The only questions you had back then were what would she like more: the bath salts or the World’s Best Mum mug? And would the paste on the card you made dry in time?
A lot has changed since then, but there is still one place where you can find everything to make this Mother’s Day the best ever – and that’s Camberwell Junction.
This Mother’s Day, Camberwell Junction has you covered for the perfect gift, and the best way to spend time with the person who will always be the World’s Best Mum.
Make a day of it in Camberwell Junction
There’s so much to do in Camberwell Junction, you can create a whole day’s itinerary of fun.
Start your day with a relaxed morning at the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, browsing stalls for hidden treasures, and sitting in the sunshine listening to music and sipping coffee.
Uncovering all those hidden gems works up an appetite, so head down to one of Camberwell Junction’s wonderful cafes for brunch.
Take mum out for afternoon tea and sweet treats
Afternoon tea is a tradition beloved by mothers for generations – and Camberwell Junction is home to afternoon tea destinations that play a shining role in the treasured memories in so many family trees.
Laurent has been a family favourite for many years, and locals will tell you that they’ve taken their mothers there for afternoon tea, just as their mothers took theirs.
Express your love with flowers
Is it even Mother’s Day without flowers? Psst, the answer is no!
For fancy or flamboyant, head to Eufloria; or for a bouquet made especially for Mum featuring all her favourites, check out Camberwell Florist. For a bouquet that combines art with blooms, head straight to Monet de Fleur.
Want flowers that last longer? Why not swap out a bouquet for a flowering indoor plant? Victoria’s Flower Garden and Cafe has a wide range to choose from – or take Mum to choose her own, and then share a coffee and cake while you’re there.
