Ultimate Mother’s Day Spoils for Every Mom in Cape Town
We can all agree that there are few greater things in this world than mothers. Moms, like wildflowers, are colourful and unique – and they all deserve to be honoured on Mother’s Day.
To help you spoil these special ladies, we’ve gathered a selection of activities to match whichever wildflower your mom happens to be. Whether she enjoys an outdoor adventure, or an indoor pamper session, these fun activities for you to do together will definitely make this Mother’s Day one to remember.
From active moms to foodie moms, we’ve got you covered. Read on for the ultimate Mother’s Day spoils for every mom in Cape Town.
The Fun-Junkie Mom: Sundowners
Is your mom a kid at heart? Can she take you from grumpy to laughing in 5 minutes?
Is she always game for family line dancing classes and karaoke evenings? Then your mom is definitely a fun-junkie mom.
If this is your mom, why not do something a little unorthodox for Mother’s Day? Sundowners is a definite a winner.
For a stunning sea view, try Moyo at Eden on the Bay, Maestros on the Beach, or The Bungalow in Clifton.
The Always-Exhausted Mom: Spa Pamper Day
Your mom is tired. Like, really tired. She has the longest to-do list and is slowly getting through it in a sleep-dazed stumble.
Help your mom relax, refresh and recharge with soothing spa treatments. Fortunately, Cape Town has several sanctuaries that you and your mom can retreat to. Our top picks are Smoothe Beauty Bar for rejuvenating beauty treatments, Dream Nails for creative manis and pedis, and the One & Only for an all-out spa day.
Your mom can let off steam in the sauna and maybe even catch up on some much needed zzz’s during a massage… bliss.
The Active Mom: Picnic Time!
Your mom doesn’t just wear leggings because they’re comfy. She wears them because she just finished up a set of squats and lunges and is heading for a 10km run later. Sound familiar?
If that is your mom to a T, why not spend Mother’s Day together in the great outdoors and have a sunshiny picnic.
Eden on the Bay has stunning lawns with the most perfect view of Table Mountain. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is another great option, plus you can hike up the back of Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch.
I’m sure your mom will pack in super-nutritious snacks as well. Score!
The Foodie Mom: Tea and Cake(/strong>
Your mom is the bake-sale-queen and has the biggest sweet tooth in the family by far. Satisfy her (and your) cravings with a yummy tea and cake afternoon this Mother’s Day. We recommend Cup & Cup for a delectable selection of cake and treats, or the Vineyard Hotel for a high-tea spread.
Or, perhaps your mom is more of a crunchy-granola mom, who makes vegan soup using homegrown broccoli while brewing her own kombucha. In that case, try Raw and Roxy for delicious raw vegan meals and other healthy options, or Honest Chocolate for organic, dark chocolate treats.
The Glamour Mom: Shop shop shop
Glamour moms are dressed stylishly in stain-free clothes, and their hair and makeup are flawless. The best kind of Mother’s Day treat for this mom is an afternoon browsing the Mother City’s best boutique stores.
There are several hidden gems in Cape Town that are worthy of your glamour mom’s perusal. We love MeMeMe on Long Street, Mareth | Colleen also on Long Street, and Boska Fashion in Blouberg.
It doesn’t actually matter what kind of mom your mom is. You know that she is totally amazing and deserves the ultimate spoil this Mother’s Day. So, pick your favourite spot and enjoy the day!
