She is the first special person in everyone’s life. Who is she? A mother.
This is why, on this Mothers Day South Africa, you need to show your gratitude for everything mummy has ever done for you since birth.
Mother’s Day is set aside to honor motherhood, maternal bonds, and all mother figures in the society.
Whether you plan on pampering her or taking her for an adventure, these ideas will help you create amazing memories for her.
1. Enjoy brunch together
Sunday is the universal day when people enjoy delicious brunch, and the best part is that every Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday. Hence, you can opt to take your mum to her favorite restaurant, where she can indulge in all her preferred meals. Various restaurants in South Africa have exclusive deals for Mother’s Day; hence, make sure to secure a reservation beforehand.
2. Cook for her
On this day, moms are pampered, and their children take over their roles so that they have some time off to relax. Taking mummy to brunch is not the only thing you can do as home-cooked meals are also exceptional. Early in the morning, wake her up with some breakfast in bed or treat her to some home-cooked lunch. Remember to wash the dishes too!
3. Book a spa day
Because moms are always taking care of everyone in the family, they tend to neglect themselves. For this reason, a spa day is something she is likely to enjoy. At the spa, she can enjoy getting a manicure, pedicure, new hairdo, and get a massage to help her relax. Your mother will surely appreciate the effort of getting her pampered.
4. Enroll in a cooking class
Another activity you can engage in on this day includes enrolling in an adventurous cooking class. Both of you can get to learn a new recipe and get to bond with each other during the course.
5. How about a family photoshoot to mark Mothers Day SA?
What a better way to celebrate mum than with a family photo? Call all the family members to the shoot and get them to take countless pictures. This is one of the best memories your mom will look back to for many years.
6. Engage mum in an adventure
Is your mum adventurous? If the answer is yes, then plan for a getaway weekend where she can enjoy activities like bicycling, ziplining, swimming, or hiking. Moreover, if your mum is artistic, you can take her to a museum to enjoy some art and gallery. Most museums have a special Mother’s Day discount on their tours and events.
7. Buy flowers and gifts cards
Most people in South Africa celebrate Mother’s Day buying flowers. Younger kids make home-made gift cards that are often priceless. You can include other goodies in the gift basket such as chocolates and cupcakes that she will enjoy.
8. Enjoy mummy’s favorite TV shows and music
Celebrating Mother’s Day in South Africa is not about the amount of cash spent. One of the greatest gifts you can give your mummy is spending some quality time with her. If you are a busy professional and never get to spend time with her, it will be best to mark the day sitting on a cozy couch while binge-watching some of the mom’s favorite shows. You can prepare some popcorns and drinks while at it.
