Things are undeniably different than they were this time last year and that’s a very good reason to get out and celebrate that special lady in your life. The one who’s helping to home school, keep household supplies coming in, and keeping herself and the rest of the family sane in lock down.
In addition to all the amazing cafes and restaurants in Manly Harbour Village, you really don’t need to travel far to get that perfect gift for Mum. Almost all of our giftware, fashion and retails outlets are either open or offering online orders, delivery and click and collect options.
First things first, you’ll need a card and possibly some wrapping paper: Manly News & Casket (aka Manly’s friendliest newsagency) has an excellent selection, along with some great gifts. So too is our very own Australia Post – but get in quick if you need to send anything! While you’re there, duck into the Manly Village Pharmacy to see their gorgeous range of trinkets, jewellery, skin care and pampering packs. The IGA Manly Village also has cards, wraps, Mum’s favourite chocolates, and let’s not forget the flowers – these are important!
Mum’s favourite tipple. What is it? Have you checked? You will certainly be able to get it from The Manly Hotel Bottlemart. Always a bargain to be found.
On the subject of flowers and spectacular blooms, Frond Flowers always has a beautiful selection of seasonal blooms, native arrangements, plants, gifts and so much more. They also deliver, so call today and lock in something special with Casey & her team.
Julieann and her crew at Ebb+Flow are working hard to showcase their gorgeous new stock for the coming cooler months. Call to make a private appointment or to discuss the social distancing measures they have in place. They’ll work with you to get that perfect gift.
For the latest in Italian designer fashion, jewellery and homewares, Bella Botiqo has a spectacular selection. Check out their new Autumn Tones fashion line, dressing up is so much more fun in the cooler months.
Over at the Manly Harbour Gallery there is an incredible array of art, jewellery and beautiful accessories. If you haven’t checked out their online gallery yet, jump on line and get some inspiration. Some amazing talent has gone into their collection.
After the craziness of the last few months, let Mum find her inner peace and reconnect to Mother Earth at Apothecary Botanica. Choose from raw ingredients for skincare and wellness, crystals, books, locally made natural skincare products, handmade jewellery, cleansing sage, tarot, oracle decks and gifts.
What Mum wouldn’t love a few hours ‘time out’ with a great book? The Mad Hatters Bookshop can certainly help here. All the rest of the family needs to do then is help with the peace and quiet.
Peace and quiet might be closer than you think – check out Manly Marina Cove‘s ‘Mother’s Day Staycation Special’. Mum can take that great book (or books), put her feet up and relax with a view of our beautiful bay.
Perhaps Mum wants to be out there on the bay? Second Wind Sailing has recreational sailing options that are sure to unwind and de-stress. Nothing but the sea and the wind in your hair.
