2. Make her breakfast in bed...with Mother's Day mimosas!
Break out the dry Sparkling, orange juice and perhaps a dash of Grand Marnier and make it a Mother’s Day breakfast to remember with a morning mimosa, served in bed with a freshly picked flower from the garden, some scrambled eggs on sourdough, and a home-made card. She’ll be touched, unless she’s the type who and gets up at the crack of dawn… in which case, set your alarm extra early and surprise her in style.
3. Cook her a delicious lunch or dinner!
Food always tastes better when it’s made by someone else, so it’s time to repay the favour in a small way with a delicious meal made just for mum. Get inspiration from our Selector recipe hub with countless food ideas from simple to stunning, to fill her belly and warm her heart. And, don’t forget to serve a matching wine with your gourmet treats.

4. Take her on a Wine Tasting Tour!
Why not take mum on a wine tasting tour? Choose a family member or a friend as a designated driver and enjoy exploring the deliciousness of your local region together. Here are our tips for wonderful regions, best wineries and cellar doors to visit right around the country.
If you can’t make it out to the vineyards, set up a wine experience at home with our Regional Selects 187ml Sampler.

5. Share some giggles over A wine game
What self-respecting wine-loving mum wouldn’t want to play a wine game on Mother’s Day? Challenge mum to a session of our Battle of the Senses wine tasting game. Following ‘the 5 S’s – namely, see, swirl, smell, sip and savour – Battle of the Senses is not only educational, it’s also serious fun. But remember to let her win, after all it is Mother’s Day, after all.

6. Create her a wine cocktail
Is there anything that wine can’t do? Beyond being delicious in its own right, it’s also a vital ingredient in the kind of cocktails that will take your mum’s special day to next level. Create her a wine cocktail (or two) from some our favourite recipes that are guaranteed to bring some extra flair, fun and make her feel absolutely fabulous.

7. Host her in your own day spa!
You don’t have to make a trip to Endota to dote on your mum. Making a home day spa experience is easier than you might think. A quick google search will provide a host of options to turn everyday objects from around the home into an indulgent spoiling session. Pop open a bottle of Sparkling, light some candles, drop some lavender in your diffuser, cue the chill out music, pour her a long hot bubble bath, and let the spoiling begin.
8. Treat her to a high tea experience
A high tea at home is an easy and fun way to make your mum’s day even more special. Make a little card invitation instructing her to get dressed up, and get your apron on for making some home-baked scones, cakes, slices and sandwiches to accompany her favourite blend for a traditional three-tier high tea at home. Or skip the tea and pour her a glass of Prosecco instead. Take a look at our Selector dessert recipes for some delicious inspiration.
9. Make it a movie marathon
Fire up the popcorn maker and cue up the downloads, it’s time for a Mother’s Day Movie Marathon! Make sure to have a selection of her favourite wines, gather the throw rugs and cushions, and get yourself sorted on the sofa in preparation for a cinematic celebration. Draw the drapes, fill your glass, and get comfy, as we share – in no particular order – Wine Selectors Top 12 Wine Movies Picks!
10. Treat her to something sweet
Get your delicious on and surprise your mum with some decadent wine and dessert matches. Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to indulge, so whether you get busy in the kitchen, or pop to your favourite patisserie, you and your mum will enjoy the perfect pairings and a sweet treat to share.
With a little forethought, it’s super-easy to spoil mum this Mother’s Day. When you do, take some snaps of your home-made high tea, dinner, cocktail or dessert, and share them with us on Facebook or Instagram – we’d love to see them!
