It is not a hidden fact that mothers are beautiful creatures that we can almost compare to Angels, but can’t because we know they are way above that. They were sent in our lives to always make everything better. She birthed you, nursed you to health when you fell sick, taught you how to talk and even how to use the potty. How can you not want to celebrate this special person every possible day? Mother’s day is this Sunday, meaning we have from now till then to do small wonderful things to remind our Mothers how important they are in our lives.
If you work from home or still not working, you can make her breakfast in bed. Surprise her with a delicious meal. Or order her a wonderful breakfast off Jumia Food and have it delivered at home or her workplace; with technology everything has been made easy. You can also have a card with words of appreciation sent to her alongside the breakfast just so she knows.
Some days all a girl needs are some flowers to brighten her day. Your mother is no different. What are her favourite flowers? Or does she like fruit baskets instead? Maybe a basket full of bathroom products. Whatever tickles her fancy, get it. It is her day after all.
How about picking your Mum up from work/ home or wherever she is and take her for a lunch about town. Take her to her favourite restaurant, so many of them will even have Mother’s Day specials on the menu.
Bring on the happy waterworks and take her for band, dedicate a special song to her. Many bands around Kampala take special requests during their shows. In fact they will even give you the microphone and you sing for her. What could be more special?
Celebrate her in a special way and take your Mama for a well set photoshoot. Freeze the moments of her smile and beauty in time. Over the years, photography has grown beyond the mediocre, you will be surprised at how happy she will be being treated like a model.
Your mother deserves the finer things in life, so why not take her shopping? What are those wonderful things she has been wanting to buy but doesn’t seem to get time? Well, use this week to take around the malls and surprise her by paying for them. Mother deserves the best.
A Queen deserves some tender loving care, book a spa day for her. A massage, manicure and pedicure session and a hair day for her at the spa. She will leave feeling refreshed and worth a million bucks.
Top the week off with a dinner for Mama. Many hotels around town will be doing mother’s day dinner specials, so look through sites and see what you can get.
It is always important to celebrate the special people in your life everyday, you do not need one day in a year to do so.
