Mother’s Day is fast approaching and this year takes place on Sunday 13 May. I know every year I struggle to think of something to do with my Mum to indulge her for the day. Usually I try to take her out for lunch somewhere nice. However being a Mum myself I would absolutely love to be indulged and pampered on the day. So after much research I have found 7 Ways to Spoil Mum on Mother’s Day on the Gold Coast. I’m sure there are similar offerings in your city.
The Craft Parlour is a place where anyone is welcome to come and get crafty, creative and inspired. They run regular creative workshops that are ideal for groups of friends or as a treat for that special someone. I know as a Mum I would love nothing more that to be treated to one of these great workshops that can be anything from macrame to candle making.
On Mother’s Day there is a special Mother’s Day Flowers Crown Making and High Tea event being held at the studio located at 1059 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach. For enquiries visit The Craft Parlour.
For a traditional European High Tea take Mum along to Teavine House, who specialise in the experience of High Tea “a cup above the rest”. The High Tea menu is made up of a selection of homemade savouries, ribbon sandwiches, mini quiches, vol-au-vents filled with prawn mousse, home baked frittata, a decadent selection of homemade petite cakes and slices, and Teavine’s famous mini scones with fresh cream and jam. Also included is one beverage from their extensive menu.
Teavine House is set in the picturesque Tallebudgera Valley with ambient French Provincial decor in their function room and patio. The perfect location to play ladies!
How does a combination of vinyasa yoga and live music, amid tropical parklands on the riverside sound? Hosted by instructor Lara Zilibowitz, this ABC’s podcast Classic Flow yoga is staged at sunset and sunrise with sessions backed with classical music performed live.
All Mum needs to do is bring her yoga mat, water and register to reserve her space for this free event. This is perfect for yogis of all levels and I can’t think of a more relaxing way to start or end Mother’s Day.
This 3 day hiking experience occurs from 11 to 13 May departing from O’Reilly’s Resort. The hike is along the same route that Bernard O’Reilly followed in his search for the Stinson Wreck in 1937. Taking you through stunning landscape, you are surrounded by the incredibly diverse and wonderful flora and fauna of Lamington National Park.
Priced from $399 including; dinner and breakfast for two days, guided walk including transfers and packed lunch, training guidance from an O’Reilly’s guide leading up to the walk and celebratory drinks and snacks at the end of the walk at Christmas Creek. This certainly would be a fabulous challenge for hiker Mums out there and something to tell the Grandkids about in the coming years. For more information and enquiries visit O’Reillys
I know Mum would normally like a rest from cooking on Mother’s Day, but I’m sure she would love to attend a cooking class, where she gets to enjoy the meal afterwards, in a gorgeous location at Tamborine Mountain.
Mum would enjoy a great day out, maybe with her daughter or a friend, learning to cook delicious dishes in a private relaxed atmosphere on beautiful Mt Tamborine. It is run out of a colonial style house set amongst 2 acres of show gardens with majestic views over the Scenic Rim.
French trained chef, Terri Taylor is a true professional and loves nothing better than sharing her experience with tips and tricks so you too can produce truly delicious results. For enquiries and bookings phone 07 5545 4564.
Give Mum the day off and treat her to a delicious lunch at the glorious O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards. Grab a Homestead Picnic Hamper from the winery, find a spot on the banks of the bubbling Canungra Creek and enjoy the surrounds while feasting on delicious fare.
A basket for two is complete with gourmet cheeses, cured meats and a complimentary bottle of Picnic Bubbles all presented in our signature O’Reilly’s jute bag, which is yours to keep. The kids are looked after with fresh ham and salad baguettes and ice cream for dessert. To pre-purchase a hamper visit Canungra Valley Vineyards. Located at 852 Lamington National Park Rd, Canungra.
Register Mum for the 4km walk, 4km run, 8km walk or 8km run at the Mother’s Day Classic, all for a good cause to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research. This fun, healthy and inspirational event brings the community together on Mother’s Day to support and remember those touched by breast cancer.
The Mother’s Day Classic includes lots of fun family activities that can be enjoyed by all. What a fun activity to do with your kids or with friends and a great way to work up an appetite for a much deserved lunch afterwards!
The Mother’s Day Classic commences at 7.30am from the southern end of Pratten Park, Broadbeach on the Gold Coast.
I’m not sure about you but I would enjoy several of these great activities on Mother’s Day. Normally I’m more than happy with just spending quality time with my kids and receiving a small gift. How about you? Do you get spoilt by your kids on Mother’s Day?

These are great ideas! Activities or events are such a nice idea, especially when one already has too many ‘things’!
KathyMay 3, 2018
I like the idea of activities as opposed to material items too Christine. I think we all have enough “things” in our lives and experiences are so much more fun. #TeamLovinLife
Lydia C. LeeMay 3, 2018
What great ideas!
KathyMay 3, 2018
Thanks Lydia. I thought so too!! #TeamLovinLife
Min@WriteoftheMiddleMay 3, 2018
Some great ideas here Kathy! My siblings and I are taking Mum for High Tea at the Hilton for her birthday – a bit of a treat. Not sure what our plans are for Mother’s Day yet! I personally would love that cooking class up at Mt Tamborine, along with a few nights staying up there. I do love it up there and haven’t been in ages. :-) #TeamLovinLife
KathyMay 3, 2018
My Mum is not that ambulant at present so it’s a bit of a mission taking her out anywhere. However I will try to at least take her out for a quick bite somewhere. Wouldn’t that cooking class on Tamborine Mountain be fabulous? I believe Lyndall has done the cooking class. #TeamLovinLife

Perfect ways to spoil Mum, Kathy, I just wish my Mum was still here with me. Never mind I will be spending Mother’s day with my children and Ethan my grandson plus visiting my MIL. I love a High Tea and actually am MC and Guest Speaker at a Mother’s High Tea on the Saturday. Great post as always xx
KathyMay 11, 2018
Hi Sue, I hope your MC and Guest Speaker gig goes well for your High Tea. I’m sure you will be amazing. Enjoy Mother’s Day. #TeamLovinLife

Sadly I don’t have a mother with us any more, so those that do, please treasure every special moment, and spoil her! You never know when she will no longer be there.
KathyMay 3, 2018
I couldn’t agree more Jill. I will certainly be indulging my Mum by at least taking her out for lunch. #TeamLovinLife
Natalie @ Be Kind 2 YouMay 3, 2018
I love the idea of doing yoga with my mum. I might actually organise something like that. Maybe include my girls too.
KathyMay 5, 2018
Yes yoga would be a wonderful mother/daughter activity. Hopefully my daughter will take the hint! #TeamLovinLife
JodieMay 3, 2018
We always like doing something fun, so these ideas are right up our alley. We actually have talked about going to a yoga class soon!!
KathyMay 5, 2018
Excellent. I like the idea of going somewhere for the day rather than just receiving a gift. #TeamLovinLife
Leanne @ Deep Fried FruitMay 4, 2018
So many great experiences to be had. I do love the “experiences” gifts over the actual gifts. I should see what the equivalents might be here in Canberra.
Candi RandolphMay 4, 2018
I love your ideas, there is such a variety. And you’re right, no matter where we live, there are similar types of activities available. I particularly like the idea of high tea, or a cooking class!
DebbieMay 4, 2018
I agree Kathy, giving the gift of experiences and activities is a lovely way to celebrate. I love these ideas too 😊
KathyMay 5, 2018
Thanks Debbie. I would love to do any of these activities, but not sure how I would go on the three day hike!! #TeamLovinLife

Such a good idea. Sometimes it is difficult to think outside the box when it comes to how to spoil our Mum’s!
KathyMay 5, 2018
Yes I agree. I think there are some good ideas here and I would certainly be happy to do any of these activities. #TeamLovinLife

I got my mum her Mother’s Day present when I was travelling so it’s been sitting in my cupboard impatiently waiting to be handed over. And usually I’m like a big kid re giving pressies so am surprised I’ve managed to wait.
My mum always has church first thing so I’ll see if she wants to go to lunch or dinner. She’ll probably be happy to just do something at home.
KathyMay 7, 2018
I’m taking my Mum out for brunch, so that I can then share the afternoon with my two kids. I’m not sure what they have in store for me yet!
