Though perhaps your mother and mother-in-law should be pampered year-round, Mother's Day is a special day to help them both bond well. There's no shortage of examples of the "mother-in-law from hell" and “mother and mother-in-law don’t get along” stereotype in popular media. But… there are tons of amazing mother and mother-in-law relationships that are or can be special.
To inspire you further, we have suggested eight ways through which you could pamper your mother(s) this Mother's Day.
1. Sunday Brunch
Here's a way to make your mothers unwind! Blue Frog, Mumbai hosts a “Sunday Brunch Mother & Me Special” from 11:30 a.m. onwards on the 10th of May. Have your fill of sumptuous food then revel in good music, maybe shake a leg, and when your feet give up, indulge in a relaxing foot spa. The celebration continues with many fun games and activities that will make this day memorable.
Or, you can also take them to the Le Meridien, New Delhi. Where, the morning will begin with an elaborate brunch, marvellous live band, an enthralling cooking competition, and a sketch artist to engrave her on paper that delights her heart.
A perfect way to win some brownie points from both ends.
2. Prepare a dish
Call your mothers over to your place and plan a surprise lunch/dinner date with them. From an elegant brunch to an over-the-top dream dinner. Your mothers will definitely feel like queens when they are served their favourite dishes made by their kids, this Mother's Day!
3. A stand-up comedy show
The family that laughs together, well, knows how to have a good time together. Bangalore Comedy Club and Vapour come together to bring you a night with the best stand up comics in Bangalore. All proceeds of the show will be given towards the relief work to rebuild Nepal. A little laughter that will bring sunshine to many others as well! Your mothers are definitely going to love this.
Venue: Vapour Bangalore
Time: Sunday, 8:00pm
4. A scenic drive
Pampering one of the most special women in your life cannot be easy. However, taking a little effort and planning a trip that will help you three bond well, nothing can be better, right? Plan a picnic and pack some of your mothers’ favourite snacks and take them on a scenic drive to a beautiful place nearby.
5. Go Shopping
And for a reason! Even before you knew the meaning of the word shopping, your mothers had been doing it for you and her children. They can be the experts to guide you along the process and become partners in crime.
Bakstage, Kolkata is unveiling a brand new exclusive collection of Furla this Mother's Day. Gift them the most beautiful bags and make them feel special, for they are.
6. DIY (Do it Yourself)
Anything that is hand-made and unique melts a woman's heart instantly. Whether it is breakfast in bed, a hand-made card, a knit handkerchief or even a photo frame, it will make your mothers feel like the most special women in your life.
7. A family/friends photo book
Gather photos of both the families along with your mothers’ school/college friends of the early days. Though it might consume a lot of time and effort, at the end it is going to be worth it. Basically a scrapbook filled with memories will make them feel nostalgic, won’t it? As an add-on, write your favourite quotes or family sayings for a personal touch.
8. Party it out
If your mothers love socialising, organise a party with the people they love. Coordinate with friends and family to celebrate this auspicious day. Spending time with their friends and family on this special day can be one of the most memorable days of your mothers’ lives.
Mothers are special people. Some days they may drive you crazy, but ultimately they care for you and have your best interest at heart. Let us know what special things have you planned for your mothers.
