Mother’s day Gift Guide


Although the first chill of autumn has already arrived, one the most heart-warming celebrations is still on its way to bring some joyous family times. Ideally we remember to cherish mums all year round, but Mother’s Day, celebrated on the 13th of May, gives the perfect opportunity to make them feel extra special. Should you search for a memorable gift for a first time mum or want to surprise your mother with something unique this year, we are here to help. Scroll down to view our selection of Mother’s Day gifts that we have carefully collected from some of the best shops of Croydon Main Street.

For the mum who likes being pampered

Some mums love their pampering time and see it as a way to recharge. Others have to be reminded to have some and take some time for themselves for a change. To whichever group your mum falls to, Mother’s Day seems like the perfect excuse to spoil her with a pampering day, when she is the one who gets looked after. Choose from the two available pamper package from Direct Beauty, and let mum indulge in some beauty time by having a facial, a manicure, a hand treatment or a massage. Gift vouchers are also available. Find out more

For the mum who loves high tea

Spending quality time with their children is one of the biggest gifts to any mother. If she also enjoys stylish cakes and beautiful bites, high tea at Croydon Village Café could be the ultimate treat. During the week leading up to Mother’s day (7-13 May), they offer a special high tea meal with a selection of plate and your choice of hot drink. For bookings call

For the film-loving mum

Another way of surprising your mum with a shared experience is taking her out for a movie and dinner night. Croydon Cinemas will take care of all the details with their special movie plus meal deals. Should you been in the mood for having some Italian, Thai, or Mexican bites, or rather opt for a burger and some great quality beer, you will find the perfect place to match with your movie tickets.

For the book-lover mum

The times for curling up under a warm blanket with a good book are approaching fast. So why don’t you head to Collins Booksellers to find the next read for mum? If she loves contemporary fiction and a compelling story Tim Winton’s new novel, The Shepherd’s Hut, seems like the ideal choice. If she spends all her free time gardening, she will love Sophie’s Patch, by Sophie Thomson; a gorgeous, inspirational and fun gardening book jam-packed with ideas, tips and projects. If she likes a good laugh, Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies by Kitty Flanagan – a candid collection of cautionary tales providing hilarious and honest life advice –, can be a great choice. If she is an ambitious baker, Lamingtons & Lemon Tart by Darren Purchese is a must-have to master some Australian classics with a twist.
