Give Mum a Daydream, Sweet Dreams, and a Dream Centre Spa
Mum is sure to have a dream Mother's Day with this selection of gifts from you (pssst, Mums reading this, quick, send this link to your husband or kids; a not-so-subtle hint!).
I love my new daydream blanket by aden anais. Do you or did you ever use aden anais brand for your babies? I was always especially jealous of my kids' a a cozy blankets, the 4 layers of soft muslin, warm and light and oh-so-perfect. Well, aden anais decided that "grown-ups deserve a little luxury too," and they have created grown-up sized (153cm x 183cm) classic daydream blankets™ (100% cotton muslin), and the bamboo daydream blankets™ (bamboo fibre muslin).
Muslin is one of the purest, simplest, most gentle fabrics in the world. This finely-woven breathable fabric is believed to have originated in Bangladesh during the Middle Ages.
I would recommend following the washing label instructions. The muslin is very durable, and washing it makes the fibre softer and better with every wash; the first thing I did when I removed the gorgeous wide ribbon wrap was toss it into the washer and then tumble dried on low. It's the perfect couch blanket, to accessorize as well as to cuddle up with the kids for a story time.
A truly unique and thoughtful gift for Mum: a voucher for a Sweet Dreams Tour with Queenie's Food Tours. Tour the streets of South Yarra and discover the secrets of the best sweets in Melbourne, with a bit of coffee and shopping while you're at it. Note that due to each establishment on the tour having special Mother's Day events, there will be no tours on Mother's Day itself; a voucher for a future visit still makes a great gift.
Dream Centre Day Spa at Peninsula Springs: And what better time of year than the cooling autumn to head down to the Peninsula Hot Springs. For a quieter treat, be sure to head down for the early bird specials, or book the Dream Centre treatments for a relaxing and more luxurious visit.
What could make Mum's day dreamier than a cozy blanket, a sweets food tour, and a visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs' Dream Centre day spa?
