Mother's Day is a special and unique day to honor all mums. This day of celebration is fast approaching and will be celebrated on 21st March. It's easy to get swayed into thinking that the most valuable things in life come with a high price tag but something as small as choosing to be present sends a clear and heartfelt message too.
As the critically acclaimed poet, Maya Angelou, once said, "… people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." So here are special ways each mum can feel honored, loved, and treasured based on her unique traits.
For the adventurous mum
Choose from a variety of outdoor experiences to celebrate this special day by either ice skating at one of the different locations around the city or bike riding along the Dubai Water Canal. With the recent launch of the Careem smart bikes, there is no need to worry about purchasing one. Simply download the Careem Bike app which is used to unlock the bicycles. With numerous bike stations across the city, this provides an opportunity to alternate rides with fun activities along the way.
The foodie mum
Take mum out to her favorite restaurant but choose the location wisely so she will enjoy the food and ambiance. Several restaurants and hotels will be offering discounts and special rates for mums. When it's time for dessert, switch it up by choosing a different location that offers cakes and pastries with a delightful accompaniment of tea or coffee.
The self-care mum
Celebrate her awesomeness by pampering her with a day of spa treatments, manicures, and pedicures. A little pampering goes a long way and creates a general feeling of relaxation and harmony. She'll be thankful for it.
For the caring mum
A special and unique gesture of love would be to help her take a break from house duties. It might be as simple as cooking a meal for her, baking a cake, or even inviting her friends over so she can enjoy the day as a guest too. This same kind of love can also be extended to younger siblings by offering to spend time with them and taking them to the park so that mum can enjoy the gift of a quiet house and personal space. Remember, the main focus is in making her feel good, appreciated, and cared for.
All these tailor-made experiences provide a creative approach to celebrating this special day while keeping away from the old routine of flowers and chocolates. Happy Mother's Day to all the mums!
