Forget the boring bunch of Chrysanthemums and box of Roses chockies from the local supermarket this year. Buy your beautiful Mum a gift that she will actually want, and absolutely deserves!
1. A bunch of donuts!
Yes that's right you can totally forget the flowers and instead buy a lovely bunch of donuts. The amazing team behind Kayter & Co/Dessert Boxes are home delivering these delicious arrangements of donuts to that special someone in your life. They don't come cheap at $78.00, but every Mum is worth that and more!

Uberkate design some gorgeous stuff for Mums, but we particulary like the expression cuffs and pendants where you can have your very own words engraved onto the jewellery pieces. You can even have a drawing engraved as well - how cool is that!
3. A voucher for High Tea - with her Besties!
Sometimes Mums just need a break from their family, so buy Mum a high tea for two so that she can take along her favourite friend for an afternoon of indulgence. We can recommend the Sheraton on the Park in the city; the Tea Room in the QVB; and for a high tea with a twist, the Atura Hotel in Blacktown.
The Sydney Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Sydney mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
4. A voucher for Ladies who Lunch at the Champagne Room in Surry Hills!
A delicious assortment of finger foods and bottomless bellinis for your Mum and her bestie (which of course could be you), in the sumptious surrounds of the Champagne Room is our idea of the perfect Mothers Day gift!
5. A voucher for a Foodie Tour!
Whether it's a chocolate, cupcake or dessert tour of the inner city or a more adventurous foodie tour of the suburban delights of Fairfield or Lakemba, Mums of all ages will love indulging in a gastronomic walking feast. Our favourite companies in Sydney are Foodi Tours and Taste Tours.
6. French Lessons!
Every Tuesday, Garcon at the Tramsheds Harold Park hold a beginners French lesson. For $20.00 you receive a glass of wine, a canape and the lesson. So take Mum along for one or more lessons and learn how to say Bonjour, Au Revoir and more!
7. Tickets for a Show!

There are so many wonderful shows coming to Sydney this year. Our "must sees" are the Australian Ballet's Alice in Wonderland which looks extraordinary! Or My Fair Lady, Madam Butterfly and Sleeping Beauty - all of which will be on stage at the Capitol Theatre. And we are also hearing really good things about the Bodyguard and Kinky Boots, which are both currently showing in Sydney for the next few months.
8. A Petite Posy!

Yes indeed all Mothers love flowers, but surely she deserves them every week, not just on Mother's Day? Thanks to the Petite Posy Shoppe you can have flowers delivered to your Mumma weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Their gorgeous little jars of fresh blooms are sure to make any Mum smile, that's for sure!
