May the 10th is just around the corner and let’s face it, mothers play an incredibly important role in our lives. So we’ve come up with some suggestions to make her feel special on Sunday:

• Get flowers delivered
This simple yet effective idea will definitely put a smile on her face! Get a bunch of her favourite flowers delivered to her doorstep, by a local supplier. See companies like saflorist that do on-the-day deliveries.

• Delight her with a Spa Treatment
A pampering session will always do the trick. There are plenty of mother’s day spa specials on offer. If you live in Cape Town, be sure to book an anti-ageing manicure, relaxing scalp massage, hair wash & blow-dry with a nice cup of hot chocolate all for only R385p/p at Excentric Hair in Sea Point. Or visit Enmasse for a well deserved massage!

• Enjoy the festivities at a local market
Enjoy your local neighbourhood’s Sunday market. Feast on some gourmet grub and join the celebrations while you browse the stalls and bond with your mother!

• Take a picnic to your nearest botanical garden
There is nothing like relaxing in the beauty of a botanical garden with only nature surrounding you. Pack a picnic basket with some scrumptious treats and go relax in the calming atmosphere, away from all the city noise. Secretly pack her favourite book too!

• Go wine tasting in the winelands
Consider taking mom on a tasty sipping session to the winelands. The Cape offers a great variety of beautifully located wine farms for you and mom to enjoy. Make sure to book your spot for lunch, as this tends to be a rather popular choice.

• Reserve a table at her favourite restaurant
Most restaurants have a mother’s day lunch or dinner special on for the day. Book a spot at her favourite place to grab a bite and share a lovely meal together. This is a lovely outing for the whole family.

• Prepare a meal at home
Show your mom how much you appreciate her with a lovely home-cooked meal. Plan her favourite dish from scratch and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in. She will certainly love this and feel very special. Don’t forget her favourite dessert!
