A special day!

The recipe for a Mother’s Day to remember…

It’s time to treat your mum or that special someone who unconditionally loves you this Mother’s Day (Sunday 12 May) – and, if like most, you’ve heard the words “oh but I don’t need or want a thing” we’ve got an idea (or two!) for you. Think outside the box, or wrapping and gift your Mum an experience instead. Check out our go-to to-gift-guide below:


For the lunch lover

Spend quality time with mum and catch up for Sunday lunch at Hellenika. Delight in paidakia grilled junee lamb cutlets, htapodi grilled SA octopus and saganaki aka grilled kefalograviera cheese – yamas! When booking, ask for a table outside, to soak up the sunshine poolside.


For the sweet tooth

Trust Jocelyn’s Provisions this Mother’s Day to provide the goods, baked goods, of course. From their classic raspberry butter cake to mouth-watering florentines, all sweet (and savoury) tastes are catered for at Jocelyn’s Provisions. Visit the James Street store to order and collect your treats but fair warning, expect to come home with something for yourself too.


For the go-getter

Schedule the Mum who is always on the run a visit to Health Place, the James St specialists in remedial and sports massage therapy. Bridging the gap between a health clinic and day spa, Health Place brings together practitioners who not only soothe the tension but thoughtfully make sure each session is personally tailored from the music to the pressure. It’s a gift that will keep on giving long after Mother’s Day.


For the Mum who needs a break

If mum is always on the go, help her hit re-set with a visit to KAILO. The day spa at The Calile Hotel, KAILO are experts in natural beauty, helping their clients achieve radiant skin, and energise the body’s holistic wellbeing. KAILO treatments range from specialised massages for mums to be to KAILO Ultra Skin Health Facial, designed to cleanse, repair, hydrate and brighten skin – pure bliss.


For the foodie

Wine and dine Mum at James Street’s latest dining destination Mosconi. With pasta made fresh daily by the owner’s Nonna, local produce at it’s finest and a heartfelt seasonal menu by Chef Catherine Anders, Mosconi is an intimate, Italian dining experience that will become a tradition in no time.
