It’s that time of year again: when you need to start looking for a gift for that special woman in your life. We’re talking about mum, of course! If you’re stuck for ideas, then Hahndorf could have the perfect gift waiting for you.
Although Mother’s Day is the perfect chance to spoil her, we think that especially right now, you should let her know you love her every day.
Yes, this year Mother's Day will be very different for all of us. With the COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no Mother's Day brunch or lunch out at her favourite cafe or restaurant, and no big family gatherings at Nanna's.
For many, we may not even be able to give our dear mum a hug or visit at all.
But let's not despair, let's be grateful that right now in South Australia we live in one of the safest and healthiest places on the planet.
So how can we help make your Mum's day?
Here is a list of some wonderful stores still open for private and social distancing shopping for a wide range of pressies that’ll warm your mum’s heart.
Treat her with some sweets from Chocolate @ No5, The Menz FruChocs Shop, Hahndorf Sweets, Fudge Shop Hahndorf, Treats of Hahndorf, Bean & Bikkie Co (Gingerbread) and Humbugs of Hahndorf - many are open and some with online shopping too.
Order beverages online:
Beerenberg Family Farm: For the mum who appreciates delicious food, explore the wide range of locally made condiments from Hahndorf’s Beerenberg Family Farm. With a selection of jams, sauces, dressings, slow cooker sauces and more, there are plenty of choices for Mother’s Day gift packs - available online and in-store (phone and collect). >> 2106 Mt Barker Rd, Hahndorf
Now, just because you can't take mum out for Mother's Day doesn't mean you can't plan ahead and get takeaway from one of our fabulous cafes, restaurants and eateries.
All cafes and restaurants have implemented increased hygiene practices. Some restaurants/cafes are selling ready-made meals and offer takeaway.
