Mother’s Day is coming and so is the quest to get the perfect gift!

With our vast array of traders, we have put together some suggestions to ensure you make mum feel suitably special.

The Ultimate Deli Platter

Everybody loves a deli platter so how about creating a delicious selection just for mum? Think a variety of cheeses (vintage cheddar, creamy brie, blue and goats) and cured meats (ham, prosciutto, salami). Then add plenty of tasty accompaniments – crackers, lavosh, dips and olives etc.  You’ll find everything you need at Chaso’s Gourmet Deli, The Cheese Shop Deli, Pete’N’Rosies or Cleo’s Deli.


A beautiful cake will always go down a treat and at Sweet Greek, there’s a wide selection of goodies from mouth-watering cakes and cupcakes (including gluten-free) to Rocky Road and nougat. Middle Eastern Delights including Turkish Delight and Baklava can be found at Naheda’s Choice and Anatolia Gozleme Kitchen.

If mum is being healthy, then follow in the steps of Victoria Beckham – her birthday cake was made of watermelon covered in juicy berries.


Think about how you can indulge mum this Mother’s Day. Fresh Rock Oysters from Prahran Seafoods or Periwinkle Fine Seafoods paired with a bottle of champagne from Blackhearts & Sparrows is sure to impress.


For the mum that loves to get in the kitchen and try new things then The Essential Ingredient has a wide selection of cookbooks so you are sure to find something mum will enjoy trying out. The latest trend is in Middle Eastern cuisine and you will also find the terracotta tagines, spices and rubs that go perfectly with the books.

Something for everyday

Think about getting mum a present that she can use every day. Shop Neutral has great re-usable water bottles and coffee cups that make ideal gifts – and you’ll be helping the planet too!


Flowers are always going to be appreciated so head to Flawless Flowers, Clara’s Flowers or Prahran Garden Centre for the perfect blooms. Traditional flowers for Mother’s Day include Chrysanthemums, Tulips and Roses but don’t let that stop you getting mum’s favourite flower. For something a little different, a bouquet of native flowers is always stunning.

Cook for mum

If you want to create mum a delicious dinner but are not great in the kitchen then we have you covered! The Fresh Pasta Shop sells handmade pasta, gnocchi and sauces so you can whip up a tasty Italian meal in minutes. For the most delicious of pies that are ready to heat and serve then head to Barossa Fine Foods and you are sure to make mum’s day.

Here’s a range of delectable recipes you can whip up for Mum on Mother’s Day too!
