Yes, that probably is the most overused tagline of all time but in this case, Mum’s really do deserve celebrating. Mother’s Day is fast approaching and so now’s the time to start planning.
It’s no mean feat to keep the home running and it’s even more pressure when she has entertained you all, every whim, every meal, every thing for the last 12 months, without any let up. The maternal instinct to protect and coddle has been in overdrive so let’s plan a weekend of indulgence for your mum, step mum, soon to be mum or special woman who looks after you as if she were your mum.
Take her shopping? Who hasn’t missed it?! Make an experience of it. Right now the stores are full of spring colours and fabulous new designs. Polo Ralph Lauren has these gorgeous timeless chain print dresses in, or a flattering floral wrap shift, or opt for a comfortable new style polo shirt dress for funky mum’s that like a sporty look. There are colours to suit all! The latter are available at the new GANT monostore at BayStreet – worth a trip for you too – the whole family are catered for under one roof!
My personal favourite, if my ‘step’ kids are reading this, is the white GANT hoodie, or the Polo Ralph Lauren Aran style jumper. I’m happy with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn all to myself and gossip and giggles with them otherwise. Because while it is the thought the counts, the lovely messages, cards etc, something different is what we all need right now.
Whatever you end up doing, do it safely.
