"To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colours of a rainbow." — Maya Angelou

5. UPCYCLE SOMETHING FROM HER WARDROBE
There are a multitude of ways you can create a brand new garment out of something already in her wardrobe. Consider painting a pattern onto her old denim jacket, tie-dying a shirt or even adding some embroidery to a jumper! Creative upcycling techniques such as these, mean Mum gets a new wardrobe, and you've helped stem the issue of overconsumption.
6. HOME MADE COUPONS
Get the kids involved by creating Mother's Day coupons for Mum to redeem on her special day. Each coupon correlates to one act of service to either help Mum out around the house or to just show her how much you care.
Free templates are available online, or you can get crafty and make your own design. All you need is some paper, scissors, and a bit of compassion. Mum will appreciate your kind thoughts and is sure to feel grateful she’s able to put her feet up and relax.
7. VISIT YOUR LOCAL FARMERS MARKET
Although we aren't specifically suggesting you buy Mum an entire Farmer's Market — she probably does deserve it though — they are a great place to support local businesses, and find all the ingredients necessary to make the perfect Mother’s Day brunch.
From jams to artisanal cheeses, organic wines to fresh-squeezed orange juice and everything in between, Farmers' Markets have something for everyone. The Victorian Farmers Market Association Website lists all accredited (meaning that who you’re buying from, grew/made the product) each weekend, and with many across the state, there’s bound to be one near you. Don’t forget a bunch of fresh flowers on the way out!
Mothers are some of the strongest, most powerful people on earth. From all of us here at Robb & Lulu, we wish all our incredible mothers a very Happy Mother's Day.
