Mother’s Day at Toowong Village

As Mother’s Day approaches on May 10 so too does the deadline to catch the post if you’re looking to send mum something special from a distance.

I love the timing of Mother’s Day just as the winter weather starts to creep in, it’s a great time to gift something new-season appropriate like a knit, slippers, or a beautiful mug, but I have plenty of other ideas as well.

Much of this year’s Mother’s Day shopping needs to be done online with many store closures still in place however, Daisy’s Florists, David Jones, Kaisercraft, Kmart, Terry White Chemmart and Bed Bath N Table are among the gift-friendly stores still open at Toowong Village should you like to drop in for a gift while you’re in centre shopping for essentials.

Here are a few ideas I’d like to unwrap this Mother’s Day:

Kaisercraft water bottle $24.99
Glasshouse Forever Florence gift set (various sets available) at David Jones
Sukin skincare, 30% off at Terry White Chemmart until May 5
Kmart throw blanket $15
Ceramic vases $14.95/$19.95 at Bed Bath N Table

Don’t forget Daisy’s Florist for a beautiful bunch of flowers or kokedama, or Sussan’s beautiful range of sleepwear currently available online only also.

If your shopping for the person who has everything and would rather buy something you know they’ll definitely use and love, I actually love the idea of a fruit (and bakery) basket or gourmet hamper for Mother’s Day. Visit Fruity Capers, Health Squared, Mayfield Chocolates, Bakers Delight and Coles to gather some delicious treats to fill a basket of goodies.

Happy Mother’s Day, mums.
