Looking for a unique Mother's Day gift that keeps on giving?
"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." Tenneva Jordan (author and mother).
What's longer lasting than a bunch of flowers, more luxurious than a massage or facial and sweeter than a box of chocolates this Mother's Day? How about the gift of some much deserved 'me time' for mum to take whenever she likes throughout the rest of the year?
The It's Time for ME 2015 Wellbeing Guide is the ultimate gift for the most important women in your life this Mother's Day, featuring over $4,000 worth of wellness vouchers for free classes and up to 50% off a range of experiences like massages and facials, yoga and pilates, meditation and reflexology, photography, music and art classes, just to name a few.
The beautifully handcrafted book is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneurs and holistic health practitioners Kristina Stamos and Frank La Macchia, who wanted to create something unique that acknowledges a mum's innate sense of selflessness – always putting the kids, hubby and everyone else in her life first – and provides opportunities for some precious 'me time,' less any expensive price tags and inner guilt trips.

The book is the perfect way for mums to try new things, improve their own health and fitness, and perhaps even discover a newfound passion, without committing to any hefty start-up or joining fees. It also gives mums – and women more widely – permission to look after themselves and take some time to put back in what the daily grind can so quickly take away.

The It's Time for ME Wellbeing Guide is also a great fundraiser for schools, kinders and local community groups coming up to Mother's Day. Discounted books are provided on consignment and $8 from every copy sold goes directly to the fundraiser.
You won't find the It's Time for ME 2015 Wellbeing Guide in any newsagent, department or book store, making it not only a unique and thoughtful gift, but also exclusive. Better still, the book is now on sale for Mother's Day at the reduced price of $39.99 (normally $49.99).
Right now, three WeekendNotes subscribers also have the chance to win a copy. Just send an email titled 'It's Time for Me' to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us in 25 words or less why you'd like a little 'me time.' Don't forget to include your full name and postal address. The lucky winners will be drawn on 1 May 2015.
