Mother’s Day comes but once a year and for everything our moms do for us, they certainly deserve a day off and a bit of spoiling. Whether that comes in the form of breakfast in bed, a pamper session at a spa or a home-made card and special gift, we’ve donned our mom hats, scoured the shops and sourced a selection of gifts at Mainstream Mall that we think she will love.
If you’re in need of inspiration or a few tips, grab a cuppa and start planning how you’ll be spoiling mom on Sunday 9 May.
Wheelers Health Shop
Aside from their great range of health foods and products, they have a lovely gift range. We love the SOL re-usable hand-blown glass coffee cups in gorgeous pastel colours. Or if a glass of wine is your mom’s drink of choice, then these unique Ngwenya glass wine glasses are a win. Find Wheelers Health Shop here.
Minki & Co
The fabulous folk at Minki & Co are always right on trend with their locally designed and made garments. If mom loves her fashion, then look no further than one of their gorgeous limited-range items like this shawl/jersey/polar neck that can be dressed up or down. Or one of their beautiful diffusers for her bedroom. If jewellery is more mom’s vibe, they have all the jewels her heart could desire. Find Minki & Co here.
THE perfect spot to pick up something magical for mom. As they say “When looking for a gift, always choose jewelry because flowers die and you can’t wear cake!” We are coveting Spirit’s Solitaire rings, available in many different styles and cuts online and in store. And their Sunray Necklace & Crescent Moon will surely make a statement around mom’s neck. After all, aren’t you her sun and her moon? Find Spirit Jewellery here.
Sorbet is our favourite go-to beauty spot. Why not treat mom to a voucher for her treatment of choice or if she’s on her feet all day, she’ll love their Pedi-Care feet treatment range. Or perhaps a beautifully scented artisanal scented candle. Find Sorbet here.
Pick n Pay Clothing
Autumn days are here and the chill is slowly setting in. We can always rely on Pick n Pay Clothing for a budget-friendly range of clothing and accessories. We love their scarves and beanie range and their fleece and puffer jacket selection, and we think mom will love them too! Find Pick n Pay Clothing here.
Salt Jewellery located on the Main Road showcases a variety of handmade individually crafted jewellery made from the finest fossils and gemstones from around the world. We can’t stop thinking of lazy beach days, salty hair and sandy feet when viewing their collections, and just know that beach and sea-loving moms everywhere will love their Cowrie shell bracelets and Fossilized Coral & Howlite Neclaces. Find Salt Jewellery here.
Pop Up Shop
We are thrilled that the Pop-Up Shop is back infusing some more colour into the mall. Our picks from their current range for mom include their gorgeous range of blingy masks and did we mention their sale rack? There is something for everyone and all sizes, which we just love. Find the Pop Up Shop here.
We are certain that moms everywhere covet just about everything from Nap Living. Our picks include their gorgeous black and gold toiletry bags, and we are doting on their Robyn earrings. Top off your gift with an iced biscuit for mom or a special mother’s day candle. Find Nap here.
Our go-to stationery and gift store, CNA will make sure your mom stays organized – they have a lovely range of to-do lists and organizing notebooks. But if your mom is more chilled on the to-do-list front, then buy her a few mags and let her kick her feet up for a day on the couch. Find CNA here.
The Bay Book Shop
We know a few moms who would just love a good book to kick back with on Mother’s Day and The Bay Book Shop have the perfect selection. From the latest best sellers to a range of gripping fiction and non-fiction reads. Find The Bay Book Shop here.
We all know the Clicks 3-for-2 special offers… Well, it’s happening right now! Get your mom 2 items and keep one for yourself (don’t tell her we said that…). Or grab her a foot spa as a token of you love. Find Clicks here.
Heidi from Nomad creates the most beautiful custom-made pieces for her clients. We just love these Astronomy earrings, circles inside circles. Did you know the circle is symbolic of infinity and the endless cycles of birth and rebirth we see in our seasons and ourselves. Perfect symbolism for Mother’s day we think! If you’d like Heidi to make the perfect something for your mom, a gift voucher from Nomad means choosing exactly what you want from their collection or having a unique piece made just for her. Find Nomad here.
For healthy mom’s everywhere, she’ll love it if you picked up some goodies from Organic Route. We love their proudly South African collection of Wanderland Ecoffee cups and their Kalahari skincare range. Find Organic Route here.
We know many a mom who wouldn’t say no to a beautiful bottle of gin or bubbles. Not only does it look good, but it will pair nicely with a delicious mother’s day lunch! PicardiRebel has all of this and more depending on your mom’s drink of choice. Find PicardiRebel here.
One can wander around Rock Chic for hours and feel an immense sense of calm. Transfer some of that calm to mom with a thoughtful gift. Their new individual chakra bracelets are now available in store. And if mom loves the layered look, they have it all! From Sodalite to Amazonite, Fresh Water pearls, a little Turquoise and a touch of Smoky Quartz!We just love their Aquamarine collection – Aquamarine is a cardinal water element stone that is perhaps the strongest stone for clearing and activating the throat chakra. It stimulates the flow of energy and communication from the heart to the throat assisting in speaking one’s deepest and heartfelt truth. It is a stone of release that helps one free one’s self of attachments to old patterns, relationships and ways of being. Find Rock Chic here.
We can always trust Woolies to bring us a great selection of gifts for mom and they haven’t disappointed us this year. Delight her with homeware (and a mug or two especially for her), wine glasses, pretty décor or some delicious choccies. Find Woolworths here.
Colours is our go-to-store for scarves! With the chillier weather coming our way, what better gift that a gorgeous scarf. Pop in and view their great selection. It’s a great gift or even a better, use a scarf as wrapping paper and give your mom a double whammy of a present! Find Colours here.
