Mum & me

Toast them with a high tea
Put a spin on your usual coffee date with a delicious Mother’s Day high tea. Multiple locations citywide are toasting maternal figures this year with fabulous high tea events, suitable as a date with that special lady, or with the whole family.

Thank them with pastry
There is nothing sweeter than a melt-in-your-mouth pastry, whether it be a Danish, éclair, macaron, or the classic almond croissant. Trip to one of the many specialty cafes across the city serving these delicacies that are pleasing both to the eye and the taste buds.

Browse the boutiques
Christchurch is booming as a go-to arts precinct. Nestled amongst and nearby spaces like Te Matatiki Toi Ora The Arts Centre and the Christchurch Art Gallery are quaint boutique shops with an Edinburgh-esque aura. Browse the art galleries and finish with some retail therapy.

Sculpture park and a picnic
Pack a picnic and head to a local sculpture park, a road trip blended with fresh air and interest. Order or bake cute cupcakes, along with some cheese and crackers or sandwiches. To make it Mother’s Day-themed, add a few blooms and a mini vase or two, a bottle of rosé, and some fresh fruit.

Bottomless brunch
Treat them to something different, a morning of joy and deliciousness. Think free-flowing mimosas, tasty bites, and so many moments to fill your cup. Spend the morning getting ready together, and finish with a walk through the city’s
outdoor malls.

Spa and salon
If they love getting their nails done, a fresh blow wave, relaxing at the spa, or all of the above, consider a spa or salon treatment. Make it a date, enjoying quality time that allows for catching up and winding down.
