How You Can Still Spoil Mum Even If You’re Not There To Give It To Her
With everything that has been going on lately with Covid-19, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the doom and gloom of being separated from loved ones. Birthdays may be spent indoors, weddings have been cancelled and holidays have been postponed indefinitely. Yet in the era of isolation, we are finding new and innovative ways to stay connected with those we can’t visit. Whether that be having a wine and dine over zoom with your mates, having a games night over FaceTime or sending surprise care packages – self-isolation has never felt so united.
Now more than ever, we are prioritising the act of kindness and showing people our appreciation. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, now’s the time to go above and beyond in spoiling the deserving ladies in our lives. It must be something thoughtful and entertaining, something that she needs or can use or something that she could share with others in her home. We can still appreciate our mums from afar, and what better way to do so than with a surprise care package that’ll not only make Mum smile, but also allows you to support a variety of Australian businesses who produce local and sustainable products. At Pretty Green, we’ve got you covered.
Maybe she’s missing her favourite cocktail from the local bar. Or perhaps, she’s losing motivation with her yoga classes now being online and needs a little nudge. She could be missing her cheeky gin sessions with the girls or maybe you think she needs to be pampered with a deluxe breakfast in bed. Whatever your thoughts are, we have a care package for every mum out there. Here are just some of our favourites:
