Tequila makes everyone fantastic dancers, but wine makes everyone an artist. Having fun and embellishing your artistic flair is the ideal combination for any mother, and it will result in a gift that will last longer than chocolate.
Pinot and Picasso are hosting a special Mother’s Day edition of paint and sip, with a double canvas painting for both you and your mum to create. The ‘mumdala’ is a unique piece that will jazz up any part of your home afterwards.
Whether your mother is artistic, adventurous, or a wine mum, you are bound to find what you are looking for in this list. Just make sure you do the dishes on Mother’s Day.

About the Author
An introverted extrovert who wants to be a journalist, but also a marketer; still trying to pinpoint my passion. If only astrology was real and could tell me what I should be doing. I wake up and fall asleep to music, so if I end up writing about it too you'll know I'm happy. Maybe not as happy as when I see a puppy, but pretty close. I find creative people the most interesting, so interviewing and writing their stories is so intriguing to me. Also, it could lead to backstage passes, so my priorities are definitely in the right order. I always get a wave from my local bubble tea lady as I pass by. She passes the vibe check.
