10 Unique Activities You Can Do For Mothers’ Day Instead Of Buying A Gift
Mothers are special. They sacrifice their time, energy and at times, even their health to ensure their children have everything they need. For someone who puts their children above all else, they deserve much more than just a gift. After all, gifts can be spoilt, lost or broken. Memories however, last forever. Here are some fulfilling activities that you and your mum can do on Mothers’ Day for a memorable experience which both of you can look back on and smile.
1. Paint a Personalised T-Shirt or Tote Bag With Her From Home
Most mothers have a stressful time, having to balance home and work life. A fun and easy painting session from home is a great avenue for you and your mum to get creative and bond, while painting together in a stress-free environment.
Rather than leave the comfort of your home to go to an art studio, Streaks n Strokes offers free online painting classes where you will be taught how to paint awesome designs on your own t-shirts and tote bags! This means that you and your mum get to spend time together, while having a memorable souvenir to take away from the experience! Painting kits are available on their website to get you started as well. This is a great opportunity to spend time with your mum and let her de-stress!
2. A lovely dinner @ The Botanic
Sometimes, what a mother wants more than anything is to just spend quality time with her children. A sumptuous and healthy meal at a beautifully decorated place would be perfect for this. After all, we know mothers can be very conscious of their health! With a “green” menu, The Botanic serves mostly Western dishes made of free-range organic ingredients. They also have vegan and vegetarian menus.
On 12th May, mum gets a free meal with every 3 paying guests. A special 3-course menu ($49) has also been put together, consisting of the following:
