Like so many other things, Mother’s Day will look a little different this year. That’s why it’s important to let mum know you’re thinking of her and there’s no better place to do that than The Parade. Even if social distancing means you can’t spend the day together, there are plenty of ways to say thank you to mum and support local businesses at the same time. Here are five of the best...
For the mum who loves to be pampered
Janesce specialises in organic, plant-based skincare that keeps skin healthy and happy, and rose is the hero of their Mother’s Day pack. The Rose Nurture Trilogy ($75) includes a soothing refresher mist with rosewater and rose oil, softening hand lotion with herb extracts, and a nourishing day lotion with rose extract, marshmallow, lavender and calendula to help retain moisture.
Janesce is currently offering free shipping on all orders over $50, and gift vouchers for products and experiences will remain valid for three years so mum can really spoil herself when instore treatments resume.
For the chic mum
With an emphasis on unusual fashion and exclusive jewellery designs from both Australian and international brands, Paloma & Co is the perfect place to find a unique gift for mum. The store is currently open by appointment (call 0418 844 143) and will be open for regular trading in the week leading up to Mother’s Day.
Everything in stock is on sale, with 30-40% off all new fashion arrivals and 30-50% off all footwear. And if you can’t make it into the store, there’s a limited selection of stock available online with a further 15% discount off all orders over $99.
For the health-conscious mum
Normally Argo on The Parade would be packed out for Mother’s Day brunch, but this year mum can indulge her inner goddess at home. The team has been hard at work preparing a $49 Mother’s Day pack with an invigorating coffee scrub, revitalising tea pack, keto granola and a locally made vegan chocolate bar.
Or if you want to order a delicious meal to enjoy at home (which you can get delivered), buy mum a $50 lunch voucher and she’ll get a bonus 250 gram coffee scrub.
For the mum who has everything
There’s a reason Outdoors On Parade has been named the best homewares store in Australia. The store (which is still open from 10-2 Monday-Friday and 9-2 Saturday) is colourful, impeccably presented and full of beautiful objects. This Mother’s Day they’re offering a range of gifts from stylish furnishings to luxurious cotton pyjamas and fun games for the whole family. And if you can’t decide what to get they’ve also put together themed gift packs including tableware, body care and luxury.
All Outdoors On Parade orders include beautiful gift wrapping and free same day delivery in the Adelaide metro area (except furniture and artwork). And if you can’t spend the day together because mum is interstate there’s a $10 flat rate for delivery Australia-wide.
For every mum
Despite the small shopfront, it’s impossible to miss The Flower Parade thanks to the colourful bunches and bouquets that spill out onto the sidewalk. The store is currently conducting sales outside to keep customers safe and bringing a splash of colour to The Parade in the process.
Do the same for mum with bright yellow sunflowers ($22 a bunch) or the understated beauty of roses and chrysanthemums in a Marlo bouquet ($55). You can also order online for contactless delivery (use the code Mother2020 for a 5% discount).
