Pamper time for Mum

SHE'S the woman who gave you life.

She showered you with love and was always there to put a band-aid on that grazed knee.

This Mother's Day, which is Sunday for all those freaking out they'd forgotten it, is the time to show Mum just how grateful you are for all she does and how much she truly means.

If your mum doesn't leave catalogues with big red circles around items stuck to the fridge, then it's time to put on your thinking caps.

Alternatively, you could just read on...

Lynn Bryson of Bryson's Place said despite the clichéd gift, mums really do love flowers.

"There aren't many women who don't like receiving flowers," Mrs Bryson said.

"I've been in floristry for 28 years and flowers are still as popular as ever."

Ooh La La Beaute owner Emma Eastwell said pampering Mum this weekend was always a winner.

"(If you give Mum) pamper packages or a massage or facial, she can really relax," Ms Eastwell said.

She said gift vouchers were always a quick gift idea and gave mum the freedom to choose what treatment she would prefer.

"If I didn't have a salon, these are the things I would be buying my mum," Ms Eastwell said.

Mum not into the girlie stuff?

Why not take her to breakfast - after a sleep in of course - and let the ladies at Cafe Jacqui's take care of the cooking.

Owner Jacqui Dwan said if dining out wasn't Mum's favourite thing to do, there was plenty more on offer.

"We also have a lot of jams and conserves and gourmet things that are a bit different," Mrs Dwan said.

So however you choose to spoil mum this Sunday, remember to think about what she wants - not necessarily what she needs.
