Eastland Mother’s Day

In case you missed the memo, Mother’s Day is this weekend – Sunday 10th May, which means you only have a few more sleeps to get something organised for the number one lady in your life; your Mumma!

I’ve had lots of fun teaming up with Eastland Shopping Centre to bring you my gift guides on the @melbournegirl instagram feed. Here’s a preview in case you missed them – you can click through to the instagram photos to discover the great pieces from each of their wonderful retailers.

If you’re still stuck for a present idea for your Mum, surprise her with a Mystery Escape voucher!

We know she deserves the best, so jet set Mum off to an unknown destination within Australia, with an itinerary specially designed just for her. Simply choose how long she stays, be it one, two or three nights, and the team from Escape Travel will take it from there to create a fantastic package featuring flights and minimum 4-star accommodation. Mum’s mystery destination will then be revealed a couple of days before departure, so she knows whether to pack bikinis or boots.

    My Mom lost her Mother this year, this is her first Mother’s Day as an orphan – a terrible milestone we will all sadly face one day. Its hard to find the words to comfort somebody at such a time – a Mothers Day love heart necklace might say all of what our family are trying to say in one small special memorable gift.

    Nastasja Papanicolou

    I recently turned 29 years old which means that (whilst we are not quite at the 30 year ‘pearl’ anniversary) the wonderful Sophie has been my mother through some crazy, incredible, and absolutely loving years.

    She has grown from being my best friend to my soul mate, wherein there lies a connection superior to anything that can be described literally. I liken it to the energy the sun feels alongside the moon, and vice versa. It’s complex, interesting, yet unspokenly simple. We are like two hearts and one connecting energy. And this piece of silver would be symbolic of our maternal connection.

  • May 7, 2015

    Trish Leonard

    My Mother passed away late last year, sadly, so I nominate my lovely Daughter inlaw. Mother to my two Grandchildren and a wonderful wife to my oldest Son. She never ceases to amaze me, juggling children, work and keeping fit, housework and to top it off a beauty course to further her career! I am proud to call her my daughter.

    My Mum’s my best friend who has helped guide me through life’s web. Sometimes I don’t even realize I need her but she is always there. This Mother’s Day I’m giving her a diary and entitling it “MUMS – the word!”
    I also inscribed it “To my Mum – the person that gave and guides me through life! You have stood by me, watched and corrected me where you could. You motivated me to dream, to believe in myself. And when I was in trouble, you were my superhero! – I LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU!”

  • May 8, 2015

    Kelly Rivett

    My mum has my heart forever and always,
    But this year I need to show how it’s real.
    She recently had her full knee replaced,
    As you can imagine it was quite a deal.
    Me and my sister all pulled together to take care,
    For you can only imagine how it would feel.
    But all of a sudden it was my twisted fate,
    Surgery of my own causing me to truely reel.
    But my mum put her pain and issues aside,
    To nurse me, tend to me and listen to my every squeal.
    Despite my issues trying to eat,
    She got up to cook us all a meal.

    So this year I need to give my mum my heart,
    For this relationship is the will not peal

  • May 8, 2015


    After making sure her own children received an education, my mum anonymously sponsored teens from families in need, enabling them to stay at school and even on into university. She believes education is the key to being independent. She instilled in us good moral values, generosity, manners, kindness, empathy and a sense of humour to enable us to be the best people we could be. She deserves to wear this silver heart as a symbol for her great heart.

  • May 8, 2015

    Sophie Hamilton

    My mum is the most beautiful women I have met and really deserves this necklace. I really appreciate it when she makes me breakfast before I go to uni even though she starts work early.

    I’d love to give it to my sister who is a single mum of two young girls aged 4 and 2, after fleeing an abusive relationship. She now works full time, 6 days a week to provide for them. She never treats herself so this would be ideal for her.

  • May 9, 2015

    why your Mum deserves a silver heart this Mother’s Day-

    Every mother deserves a heart in return for their motherhood.

    To me my mum deserves the best for nurturing me into the person that I am today. Teaching me the rights and wrong, words of knowledge and the ability to believe in myself. My reflection that I can see in the mirror is of my mum.

  • May 19, 2015

    Rochelle Firth

    My mum needs a silver heart to wear, to remind her that I am always with her, regardless of distance! Living on opposite sides of the country can make it difficult, but something so precious would keep her close to me when I cannot be there !
