Time Out Sydney

Give high tea a miss this year and treat mum to a scone-free adventure

Arty? Sporty? Musical? Spend time with mum doing something she’ll love. If you’re looking for gift ideas, check out our list of Sydney’s best boutique florists or edible treats that you can send in the post.

A Vintage Mother's Day Delight

Yogi mums might enjoy a 75-minute yoga class and a candle-making workshop inside one of Alexandria’s newest creative hubs. The session will conclude with an afternoon tea of sweet treats and fresh brews. Sat May 9.

Mother's Day Classic

Got a sporty mum? Celebrate Mother’s Day by walking, jogging or running 4-7km around the Domain – all in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Sun May 10.

The Flower Era Mother's Day Workshop

Sign mum up for a morning bouquet-making workshop. They'll cover off tricks of the trade, like how to create a hand-tied bunch and how to care for blooms at home, and lunch will be served. Sun May 10.

Finders Keepers Markets

If it’s shopping that brings you together, why not kill two birds with one super-sized indie fashion and design market? Finders Keepers is back for three days of festival-like shopping in Eveleigh. May 8-10.

Light Show

Enjoy the splendour of the MCA’s Light Show – a showcase of 19 installations that bend light into improbable shapes resulting in one dazzling exhibition. Top off the day with a cocktail at Bulletin Place.

Etsy Masterclass: Resin Jewellery

Spend Mother's Day crafting jewellery with mum. Resin-obsessed button hoarder Jodie Dench teaches a three-hour workshop on how to create colourful resin jewellery from buttons. Sun May 10.

Mother's Day at Golden Age Cinema

Got a mum who’s mad for movies? Golden Age Cinema is screening three fabulous films on Sunday, including Advanced Style – a documentary following seven very fashionable New York women. Sun May 10.

Paloma Faith

Make a night of it and see Britain’s breakout songbird in her second Australian stage show at the State Theatre. Paloma Faith's Sunday show is sold out, so take mum on a school night instead. Tue May 12.
