Where to Shop for Mother's Day in Christchurch

homewares at Frances Nation

Just one day of the year feels inadequate to celebrate all of the things our wonderful mums do. But since there is just one day and it’s this Sunday (9th May), you’d better make it a goodie.

Show the women in your life how much you love and appreciate them by sharing something special from one of these local Christchurch businesses. Mum (and the business owners!) will love you for it.

From mothers to aunts, grandparents,  mums-to-be, dog mums, and all the other different kinds of mothers out there...Happy Mother's Day!
