How to make your mother feel special this Mother’s Day
Mothers are real-life superheroes. They were there when you had a bad dream, took you to school, listened and laughed to your not so funny jokes. They taught you how to be a good human-being and they continued to love you, even during those cheeky teenage years when you thought you knew everything about life. Mothers go through a lot; it’s no wonder that they’re celebrated. So it makes sense why you want to make your mother feel like the queen she is.
Read the article below to see what Mother’s Day ideas will inspire you.
Buy her flowers
When treating your mom for Mother’s Day, it doesn’t have to be costly if you don’t have the money. You can simply buy her favourite flowers and have a special card attached to it. Typo at Canal Walk is one of the best stationery shops in Cape Town, as it has a wide variety of gifts and cards for you to choose from. So, you won’t need to worry about not finding the right card because they’ve got you covered this Mother’s Day.
Help her out around the house
Moms always have something to do around the house. Whether it’s vacuum cleaning, washing the dishes or doing the laundry. And, we all know how tiring all those chores can be. So, why not give her a break and take your mom’s laundry to Klinomat Dry Cleaners and laundromat in Cape Town. We know that she will appreciate the gesture. To do more for her today, you can also offer to do all her chores for the day. Let her enjoy a chore-free day for a change.
Throw her a small party
Why not throw her a Mother’s Day party where she can enjoy some quality time with her close friends and family. This is ideal for mothers who are social butterflies but have a busy schedule. For the big day, you can get her the best cupcakes in Cape Town, at The Velvet Cake Co which will tickle her tastebuds. You can also purchase flowers, and just let her enjoy some quality time with the people she loves. Also, keep in mind that Mother's Day is for her, and it’s her special day. So, find out what kind of party she wants. Does she want a fancy one with a white tablecloth and all the trimmings or does she want to keep it simple? This will ensure that you give her the day she deserves.
Bake her a cake
If you know your way around the kitchen, why not bake her a chocolate cake? And, since you want to ensure this day is memorable, why not treat her to Lindt chocolate. We know everyone loves some Swiss chocolate every once in a while. This does not mean there is anything wrong with buying from a cake shop in Cape Town, but in all honesty, there is something meaningful about taking the time out of your day to bake your own. And, if she has a sweet tooth, then you’ve found the perfect way to her heart. So, get baking!
Curate a book filled with memories
One of the best things about life is that no matter where you go, or how old you are, you can’t take away the memories or how they made you feel. And, now that we’ve gone digital, it’s simpler to keep all those photos. But, there is something unique about being able to physically touch it. So, why not spoil your mother this Mother’s Day with a scrapbook filled with memories of you and your siblings growing up, even ones of your adult life. At Canal Walk, we offer a wide range of gift shops that will have the ideal scrapbook and all the cutesy additional add ons you’ll need to make it appealing.
Make her breakfast in bed
Why not start her day on a good note and bring her breakfast in bed? You can make her all her favourite breakfast goodies, and a nice warm cup of tea on the side in her new tea set. @home sells beautiful tea sets that will make her the talk of the neighbourhood. And, she'll always be reminded of you every time she makes herself a cup of tea. Plus, we all know how parents love to brag about their children, so not only are you buying her beautiful teacups, but you're always giving her something new to talk about. But if you don’t live under the same roof anymore, then you can always make it a coupon. She can tell you the day she feels like waking up to breakfast in bed.
Cook dinner for her
If you’re not a morning person, then maybe cooking dinner for her is the best route to go. This can be a small get together with you and your siblings, where you all can enjoy a meal together under one roof. To make it extra special, you can get her “Happy Mother’s Day” balloons from Cardies or The Crazy Store. Either way, she will be thrilled to have dinner with all of her children. And, to top it off, you can wash the dishes afterwards.
With all the buzz about Mother’s Day and thinking about the perfect Mother’s Day gift, you can give her, always keep in mind that the perfect gift you can ever give your mom is time. People are often so caught up in their busy lives that they forget to cherish and remember the importance of giving the people they care about “time”.
