Mother’s Day is just around the corner and over the years we’ve had the wonderful opportunity to share special moments like this. We’ve also seen countless Mother’s Day gifts and surprises! So we’ve listed a few unique and meaningful ideas that we’ve seen often made mums tear up with joy.

Mother’s Day Gift from Young Children

This years Mother’s Day will probably mark a very special moment for new mums. After all those tireless nights, and frantic days, she deserves a moment of appreciation. So we’re calling out all husbands, this is your moment to shine!

Personalised Jewellery

Bring your child’s drawings to life with personalised engraved jewellery. It already sounds much better than sticking another A4 piece of paper to the fridge!

Gold Foiled and Framed Children’s Artwork

Go beyond a generic Mother’s Day card and gift her with a framed piece of artwork from your children.


Mother’s Day Gift from Adult Children

Is mum’s kitchen cupboard full of old “Best Mum Ever” mugs? Change it up to a hand painted or illustrated portrait of the whole family. Imagine surprising mum with that in front of all your siblings! We’re sure she’d proudly hang that up on the walls.



Of all the cliche Mother’s Day gifts, we’ve never seen anyone dislike a Remedial Massage as gift. After all, we all deserve some pampering now and then – especially for mums! Did you know we have Remedial Massage services here at Raffertys Resort? Mum will be surrounded by the beautiful scenery and nature of Lake Macquarie all whilst being pampered.

Surprise mum with a weekend getaway and let her know that she won’t have to do any cooking or laundry! Also let her know that all children will be her servants to meet her needs! At Raffertys Resort, you can have a whole house to yourself, and enjoy all the facilities we have: pools, tennis courts, the jetty, restaurants and more.

Treat mum to a Mother’s Day Lunch with the view of Lake Macquarie on the 12th May 2019!

If you need to organise last minute Mother’s Day plans, don’t worry, we’ll keep that a secret!
