Mother’s Day is such a special day for moms. It’s the day that we get to show them just how much we love and appreciate them! It’s so important to plan the day from start to finish to make her feel truly special. The very first thing you’ll need to do, is plan breakfast… and it better be served in bed! You might want to step out of the ordinary and look at some interesting recipes, like Checkers’ Mango Breakfast Smoothie Bowl. Mom will definitely love these Banana Buttermilk Flapjacks from Woolworths Recipes. She’ll also love this delicious Iced Coffee recipe.
Once you’ve sorted our breakfast and given mom her special gifts, we highly recommend tidying up the kitchen and setting up something special for lunch. Instead of the usual meal at the table, why don’t you set up a beautiful picnic in the garden, your courtyard, balcony or even on your living room floor. All you need is a blanket, some pillows and some delicious picnic food. You can buy some excellent cheeses at our Checkers and mix them with some fresh fruit. You’ll definitely find gorgeous cupcakes and other baked goods at Woolworths. You can also make your own iced tea and add an assortment of mom’s favourite snacks and treats for your picnic.
Another thing that moms love is pampering! You can set up a little pamper station for her at home with some face masks, nail polish, foot spas or whatever other pamper and beauty products you can find at our Clicks and Dis-Chem. Let mom lay on the couch with her favourite book or movie while she enjoys a bit of pampering and relaxing. Maybe you can even pour mom a bubble bath and light some scented candles (find these at @Home or Mr Price Home) and let her relax in there for as long as she wants to.
For dinner, we highly recommend getting some pre-made meals ready. Your mom definitely doesn’t want to cook on Mother’s Day. Both Checkers and Woolworths have a large selection of ready made meals for you to choose from. From lasagne to pies, stews, pizzas and salads – you’ll definitely find something for the whole family to enjoy. Put on her favourite movie and enjoy your meal in the living room while watching her favourite movie.
That sounds like the perfect Mother’s Day to us! Have a wonderful day to all our moms out there. We hope that your day will be as special as you are!
