Mother’s Day, it’s that special time of year again that’s dedicated to our mothers.
In the Arab world, Mother’s Day is not necessarily observed on a Sunday, as it is in other parts of the world. The festival was first celebrated in Egypt in 1956 when journalist Mustafa Amin designated the first day of spring as the yearly celebration date.
If you are fortunate enough to have your mother close by, you can spend the day with her, chatting, reminiscing happy moments, looking at old photos, or doing things you enjoy. Why not include her in a special detail by giving her a present, such as cards, flowers, chocolates, or other things that she enjoys.
But what do our mothers really want to do to celebrate their special day?
Here’s a list of things to do with your mom this Mother’s Day:
Things feel better than getting your hair taken care of properly. Take her to the salon and give her a cute new haircut, blowout, or both!
Moms are superheroes in the truest sense of the word. They do so much for us on a daily basis, but they also deserve some time to unwind. Even if you can’t get to the spa, give mom a special day of pampering. Make a DIY face mask and set up a mani-pedi station.
Eat Somewhere Fancy
Your mother deserves only the best. You can pick her favourite eating place or try new restaurants that you know she will enjoy. Get a glass of wine and reminisce the days when you were younger.
Spend the day shopping for mom, whether you go to her favourite store or go antiquing at a nearby flea market. She’ll appreciate your assistance in selecting something special, whether it’s jewelry, clothing, or home décor.
Have an Afternoon Tea Party
To have a fancy tea party, you don’t have to go to the Plaza; simply create some bite-sized tea sandwiches.
Go Out of Town
While it may not yet be bathing suit season, spend an afternoon at the beach before the weather truly heats up and the tourists take over. Bring a book and relax in the sunshine.
To make Mom feel special, you don’t have to go very far. A weekend retreat at a charming bed and breakfast or a road trip to a new destination she’s always wanted to see is the ideal way to spend quality time with mom.
Make Her Breakfast in Bed
This thoughtful gesture is well worth it. Put together an easy breakfast like croissants and eggs and add a vase of flowers on the side to make it look special.
Make Her Feel Special
Celebrating Mother’s Day is not only commemorating an event made for all the mothers in the world. It is also a tribute to our mothers who have sacrificed a lot for us.
Mothers would always say that anything is good when they deserve a good break, but what mothers really want is to spend quality time with their family, so besides her birthday, make this Mother’s Day count.
