This year, you might want to spoil your Mum with something special and unique while also supporting local Geelong businesses.
Here’s our Geelong Mother’s Day Gift Guide to help you find the perfect gift for your beloved Mum.
Austin’s & 6Ft6 Wine
Of course, we think we have some excellent gift ideas for Mum here at Austin’s. Choose from a visit to our Cellar Door to experience our award-winning wines in person, one of our fabulous Gift Packs, or a Gift Voucher that allows Mum to choose from an online wine purchase or a visit to our Moorabool Valley Cellar Door.
If your mum is a real wine lover, the ultimate way to spoil her would be with an Austin’s Wines Wine Club membership, ensuring Mum never runs out of wine. Sign her up to receive a dozen wines every 6 months, you can choose from our Austin’s and 6Ft6 ranges, delivery is free, and your mum would get a complimentary glass of wine for her and one other every time she visited us at the Cellar Door. Oh and did we mention? you get 25% off wine purchases!
Surprise your Mum this Mother’s Day with some beautiful flowers from Flower Bowl. Flowerbowl is a Geelong owned and operated business by the wonderful Jodie. Jodie and the team offer an array of stunning floral bouquets created with fresh, seasonal flowers. You can also treat your Mum to one of the gorgeous flower arrangements and gifts available from their gift range.
If your Mum is more into experiences, why not book you and your mum in for a lovely afternoon at Flowerbowl HQ filled with all things pretty and pink! In the ‘Mum’s The Word‘ workshop on April 29th you’ll create your very own beautiful floral posy to compliment your own Marmoset Found Ceramic Vase. (Vase rpp $90 included in workshop)! There’ll be yummy treats from Cakesmith, Bubbles from us (Austin’s Wines) and delicious 63 Degrees catering provided.
