When you are a kid, she makes your lunch every day, tucks you into bed at night, and wakes you up for school in the morning. When you are a teenager, she embarrasses you in front of your friends, helps you as best as she can with your homework, and supports you through all the challenges that come with being a teen. When you become an adult and you don’t think you need her help anymore, she’s always there for you, through your ups and downs, day or night. She is the essence of your being— ‘She’ is your mom.
Mother’s Day is that one special day dedicated to your mom and all mothers. There are many ways you can show your gratitude to your mother from a simple breakfast to a beautiful gift. Where better than in the Townships to offer your mom a lovely Mother’s Day!
Assuming your mom loves the little things in life and it’s the small gestures that mean the most, she may enjoy a beautiful bouquet of flowers or an assortment of delicate chocolates. A visit to Au Coeur des Saisons in Sutton for a personalized or variety of prepared flower arrangements or a trip to Chocolaterie Belge Muriel is in order for a thoughtful gift that your mom will love.
On the other hand, if you want to take your mom out on Mother’s Day, there are many fabulous places that she will love. For instance, if she loves tea, bring her to Confiserie Bartlam in Frelighsburg for afternoon tea and delicious sweets. A quaint teashop that offers scrumptious tea and even goodies to bring home can be a decadent afternoon with your mom! If tea isn’t your mom’s thing, a great day out is to the most relaxing place on earth: the spa. From Auberge & Spa West Brome, Balnea, Spa Bolton, to the Euro-Spa, the spa is a great way to treat your mom, and even yourself. Mani-pedis first, followed by a massage and to finish the day off with a dip in the pools. Sounds relaxing!
You may want to show your love for her in a different way, one that doesn’t require purchasing a gift, but doing something special instead. What better idea than to make your mom her favorite breakfast, whether it is pancakes or eggs Benedict. Check out Pinterest online for unique and creative ideas about different breakfast foods.
In any case, these are a few great and thoughtful ideas to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day. But one thing is certain, it’s the thought that counts. From the time you came home from school with a hand painted picture, your mom has proudly accepted and loved the thought you put into making or doing something especially for her. A sign of love, appreciation, and gratitude is the best gift anyone can give to someone as deserving as your mom.
