The ‘Go-To Guide' for organising a special day for all the Mothers in your life.
‘The second Sunday in May’. The one sentence that really excites us at Adelaide Mums Group. Do you know why? Of course, you do. You’re all Mums, too. It’s our favourite day, Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where we can all be celebrated for the time, energy, passion, commitment, and unwavering love that we put in to raising our children. It is a day that we give thanks to our Mothers, Aunties, and Grandmothers for raising us, with all of the aforementioned qualities, and for being a pillar of strength and support while we navigate our way through motherhood.
It is also a day where our husbands, partners, wives, children, and other relatives, ensure that our feet are up, hot drinks (or ice cool alcoholic beverages) are in our hands at all times, and we enjoy the 24 hours of luxury that we all deserve.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday 13 May this year, and while that is still another 8 weeks away, we need to start getting organised, and by ‘we’, I mean, our ‘other halves'. So, print out this article, highlight your ‘suggestions’, and leave it somewhere obvious for your spouse to see, or email it to them, because we have some amazing local events and gift ideas that will be perfect for any mother.

There are so many worthy charities that would really appreciate any sort of donation. I will list a few that link with the theme of Mother's Day, but of course, if there is a charity close to your families heart, that would be a perfect choice for a gift donation.
