Mother’s Day is not a public holiday, but at least it falls on Sunday, 8 May 2022. Even though we need to celebrate our moms and motherly figures every single day, this day is dedicated to taking it a notch further with flowers, gifts, and lots of lovely spoils!
But if you have no cookin’-clue how you’re spending Mother’s Day, we’d say don’t worry because we’ve planned out the whole day for you. All you need to do is print out this blog, keep it in your pocket to guide you through the steps and ensure your special lady is having the time of her life.
Ps. We’ll probably mention moms a lot, but you could easily use this guide for your grandmother, mother-in-law, aunt, sister, or friend.
Gift Guide for Mother’s Day 2022
Step 1: The Night Before
Sunday is going to be hectic, crazy, yet fun! That’s why your mom needs to rest well for what’s coming next. Book a room at the Holiday Inn in Sandton. It’s located on Rivonia Road, close to several key attractions such as Sandton City, one of the largest shopping centres in the southern hemisphere, and Nelson Mandela Square, which offers a diverse range of restaurants, shops and entertainment.
Step 2: The Perfect Start to The Day
Visit the little cosy pink space in the corner of Nelson Mandela Square, Cappino, for decadent flapjacks and hot fluffy waffles for breakfast! Or if you’re concerned about having your mom on a sugar rush this early in the day, perhaps tashas for a better variety.
Step 3: Show Your Mom Paradise
- Believe us; a book is the best way to start. Take your mom to CNA in Sandton City and let her choose one (or two) popular books that’ll have her cosied up for hours on end.
- What goes better with reading books than chocolate?! Geldhof Chocolatier offers an unrivalled array that will tantalise any taste buds. You won’t regret it.
- She always wanted a pair because it was fashionable then… Well, it’s back! The sun might not be shining, but the light your mom radiates is more than enough reason to get her some Celine Smoke Brown Sunglasses from Sunglass Hut.
- Show her that she can be whomever she wants with colourful, fun, and different vibes in fashion from Desigual. The Collection from Miranda Makaroff (from the image above) involves free-spirited patterns and shapely cuts that sculpt the female form.
- Take a break and enjoy some crispy tacos from the freshest ingredients on the go. Create your own at CHIAPAS – the best Mexican must-try in town!
- Now that the empty space is filled again, give your mom Le Looks. Their professionalism and hair care are so phenomenal that you won’t even recognise your mom’s transformation.
Step 4: Now, It’s Your Turn
Not to be pampered but to take your mom to the movies! You can probably smell the popcorn already. When was the last time you watched something together? She’ll love The Lost City showing at Ster-Kinekor now. A reclusive romance novelist on a book tour with her cover model gets swept up in a kidnapping attempt that lands them both in a cutthroat jungle adventure.
Step 5: A Wonderful Ending
We’re sure you’ll end up doing more than the above because Sandton’s activities are just endless. However, we hope you get to spend valuable time with the remarkable woman in your life.
Happy Mother’s Day, Sandton!
