Looking to do something a little different and special this Mother’s Day? We have scoured the net and here are some suggestions to get the ideas flowing and create a wonderful day for that someone special. From healthy activities to days out wining and dining, we have also sprinkled with a few different style activities so there is something for everyone.
Start the day with some healthy zen…
Suggest the perfect kick start to your mum’s day with a morning yoga or pilates class followed by a healthy brunch.
In Sydney, near our studio, you could try Paramount Recreational Club in Surry Hills with a rooftop haven of thoughtful design and gorgeous facilities. Even if you just want to start your morning with a healthy breakfast/brunch their Kiosk is open all day!
Don’t forget to check out the 60min Swedish massages if you really want to get in her good books!
What about a day out enjoying a Hunter Valley Wine and Wildlife Tour

Or does a detoxing sauna, floatation tank and salt therapy package float your boat?
We all gave our mums a little bit of stress growing up (some of us even still 😉 so it’s time to make up for it and what better then over 2 hours of re-lax-ation.
Floatation therapy is the ultimate relaxation; one hour of floating is the equivalent of four hours of sleep! The beautiful Himalayan salt room will help to detox, as well as strengthen your immune system, and the sauna session boosts blood circulation. Experience all three for a new you! Then winding down with a tea time.

Finally a favourite from the team at Hills & West, Fred’s, Paddington

Afterwards, pop down into basement bar Charlie Parker’s for a cocktail. If your mum is more of a morning person, the restaurant has just started serving pastries and coffee on Saturdays.
