10 unique ways to spoil Mum this Mother’s Day in Camberwell Junction

It’s the one relationship that is treasured above all others; the yardstick of love by which all other is measured. It’s why Mother’s Day is the one day of the year that’s worth going above and beyond, to express how much our mothers mean to us.

This year, make Camberwell Junction your Mother’s Day destination, to spoil Mum and let her know how much you care.

Need inspiration? Here are our top ten tips for creating the most special of Mother’s Days at Camberwell Junction.

1. Take in the Rivoli experience

With its historic Art Deco interiors, seeing a movie at Rivoli Cinemas is less about catching a flick and more about the grand cinema experience.

Whether it’s an old-time classic black and white, or the latest blockbuster, the Rivoli is a fantastic Mother’s Day destination, made that little bit more special if you upgrade to Gold Class.

2. Spoil Mum with a fashion accessory

Select a piece that will complement Mum’s style and personality at one of Camberwell Junction’s fashion boutiques.

The fashion-forward mum will love a piece from Decjuba or Havana Boutique, while those who appreciate timeless elegance will love a scarf or unique jewellery from Blue Illusion or Sportscraft.

3. Find a treasure at the Sunday Market

Go on the hunt for a gift that Mum will cherish at the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market.

Perhaps she’ll stumble upon a household item she remembers from her childhood, a book her mother read to her as a child, or maybe what will make Mum’s eyes light up is a retro dinner party set or fondue pot.

Whatever she goes home with, what she’ll really treasure is finding it with you.

4. Take her out for tea and treats

Nothing says you’re special like a coffee accompanied by an exquisitely detailed pastry or cake at one of Camberwell Junction’s European-style patisseries and cafes.

Sample the little edible works of art at Laurent, feed her sweet tooth at Choclatte, or stock up on traditional artisanal tarts, breads and pastries at Provence.

5. Say it with flowers

Whatever gift or experience you share with your mother on Mother’s Day, it needs to be accompanied by flowers – and Camberwell Junction has some of the city’s most lauded florists, with bunches to match every style and budget.

Pick up a perfectly curated bouquet from Eufloria, Monet de Fleur or Victoria’s Flower Garden and Cafe, or create your own with fresh, vibrant selections of blooms from Camberwell Market Florist.

6. Treat her to a new book

Whether she’s a connoisseur of the classics, loves a meaty romance, dives into biographies, or simply wants to get into that new bestseller everyone is talking about, a book from Dymocks will provide hours of entertainment for Mum this Mother’s Day.

7. Enjoy a drink

Sharing a bottle of wine or sampling the cocktail menu at one of Camberwell Junction’s classy wine bars is an intimate way to give Mum what she really wants this Mother’s Day: time with you.

Check out Young’s Wine Rooms and its exciting modern Mediterranean vibe and impressive wine list; step back in time at the East End Wine Bar, housed in the iconic 1930s Young’s Auction House and serving up a dose of nostalgic atmosphere; relax in the cool warehouse-chic of 8 Pizzeria; or get into a conversation with the highly trained and equally passionate bar staff at Bar None.

8. Uncover a unique gift

For a Mother’s Day present as unique and individual as she is, you can’t go past Paper Republic or Montebello Emporium.

Paper Republic sources its gorgeous high-quality gifts from around the world, including hand crafted leather journals, Crown Mill paper from Belgium, and stylish pencils from Japan.

Montebello Emporium is packed with fashion accessories and home decor gifts that will delight and inspire.

9. Opt for homewares

She knows how to make a house a home, creating spaces that are beautiful and functional, so this Mother’s Day, feed Mum’s love of homewares with a special piece from one of Camberwell Junction’s homewares stores.

For mums who love to entertain, choose from the wide selection of cookware, kitchenware, tabletop pieces at Minimax, quality linen and ceramics from Bed Bath N Table, or serving and entertaining inspiration from Wheel & Barrow.

10. Go for a global dining experience

Take Mum on a trip to a far-flung exotic location, with a meal at one of Camberwell Junction’s international restaurants.

Travel to Asia and embrace fine Japanese dining at Oushou Japanese Restaurant or delicious Chinese cuisine at Tao Dumplings.

Head to the Middle East to enjoy traditional fare at Afghan Village or go for an authentic Egyptian experience at Mizraim.

If Mum’s idea of a tastebud trip of a lifetime involves the Italian Riviera, book a table at Ambrosia Mediterranean or Con Noi Italian Trattoria, or if South America is on the bucket list, book a table at Camberwell Junction’s Mexican dining hotspot, La Cabra.

For Mother’s Day, Camberwell Junction is the one destination that offers the ultimate range of experiences to share with Mum, and gifts she will treasure forever.
