9 Ways To Spoil Mum This Mother's Day In Auckland

Mum's are pretty incredible, aren’t they? There’s almost no one else in this world who can handle having their hair ripped out (quite literally), having their toilet time interrupted by clingy children, can embarrass their kids by, well, simply breathing and do it whilst simultaneously being a living, breathing superhero.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner on Sunday 8 May, it’s the perfect opportunity to wine, dine, celebrate and show the special women in our lives just how much they mean to us.

Mum's can be hard to buy for, we feel you. So we’ve rounded up 9 sure-fire ways to give her what she really wants - precious time spent with her loved ones, sharing stories and raking in the joy.

1. Eat out all across Auckland

The only thing better than sharing joy with your family is doing it with a belly full of bloody good food. Thankfully, Auckland has plenty of other options for satisfying everyone’s appetites this Mother’s Day. Try one of our 20+ establishments to get the ball rolling (definitely not implying you will be a ball after eating). Make sure you book ahead, as these will get snapped up quickly by other keen family members.

2. Cocktails by the sea

Some mum's love brunch and a coffee in bed, others love a good drink by the water’s edge (and we can’t blame her). While not much beats Auckland’s dazzling views of the water, we reckon soaking them in while sipping on her favourite cocktail with you could do the trick. Here are a couple of our favourite spots.

Coops Corner Pub (check out their epic frozen margs)

The Lula Inn

Franc's Bar & Diner

Regatta Bar & Eatery

Moretons Bar & Restaurant

3. An afternoon fit for an (NSFW) Queen

Spoil Mum and come dine with the most fabulous divas in Auckland, Trinity Ice and Elektra Shock while enjoying bottomless beer, mimosas and brunch. With hilarious banter, glorious games and glamorous queens, dust off your tiaras and treat Mum to an afternoon of laughs, laughs and more laughs.

5. Celebrate Mumm the right way

Overlooking the breath-taking views of the Waitemata Harbour, Regatta boasts an exclusive Petanque pitch, the perfect spot to spend your Mother’s Day. Thirsty? Did we mention Regatta has $14 Mumm Champagne flutes, or make it a bottle for only $75 this Mother's Day only.

7. Get your hands a little dirty

Goode food is food that you make with your hands, just like Nonna used to make so what better way to keep on the family tradition and get her a voucher to make something dough-licious at Goode Brother's Pizza & Pasta Classes for just $59pp.

8. Did someone say shopping?

Now, hear us out! We get it, shopping isn’t something you’d typically look at, as a gift for mum, but if your superhuman is anything like the ones we know, they’ve already got everything because well, they’ve been around a while 😉. Why not take them out shopping for the day? Set a budget and tell them they can get something they love, then cool down with an ice-cold brew and a divine meal before calling it a day! Here are some spots that are close to the mall.

Mama Loco

The Merchant


Goode Brothers Botany, New Lynn and NorthWest

9. Escape to the Amalfi Coast

Nowhere encapsulates the spirit of Italy quite like the Amalfi Coast and we know you'd absolutely love to surprise mum with a getaway. While that said trip may not be able to happen currently (your bank accounts will be thankful), we've got something just as good... Malfy Gin has popped up their own little slice of paradise right in the heart of Botany. We invite you to sit back and enjoy every sip of our specialty cocktails at Goode Brothers Botany.
