Mother’s Day 2024 is on May 12 and Mum’s all over Adelaide will hopefully be eating breakfast in bed, wearing macaroni necklaces and treated to some special gifts from their loved ones….

BUT what does Mum REALLY want???

We did a quick whip around the many Mums who are part of the KiA team and below is a list of what’s on our wish list this year. And yes, this might be a very extravagant way for us to drop hints for our own lovely families, but might as well help you AND help ourselves right? A lot of these are local South Australian businesses so you can spoil Mum AND support a small business. Win/Win for everyone!

Treat Mum to some rest and relaxation

A very popular choice from the KiA Mums was a voucher for a massage, float or pamper session. Maybe a voucher from Endota, a facial from Bliss Beauty and Float, or just a 60 min full body massage from her favourite place. It might take her 12 months to find the time to redeem it but just knowing that an hour or two of alone time is ready and waiting whenever she needs it is a gift in itself.
