With Mother’s Day around the corner, you might be thinking of ways to treat mom that are a little different. We’ve put together a few ideas of ways to spoil her, no matter what your budget.
Afternoon tea at La Residence
From bruschetta to homemade scones, lemon curd to berry cheesecake, Chiffon cake to Victoria sponge, macarons to mini quiches and brownies – if you’re looking for an indulgent sweet treat, with spectacular views – this is it. While La Residence serves as a retreat for VIP guests, members of the public are welcome to enjoy all meals at the hotel, with prior booking. The Afternoon Tea is R400 per person, and definitely one of the more special activities in the valley.
A family picnic in Cape Point
Showing that time together as a family is sometimes what mom wants most, why not pack a picnic and head town to Cape Point? The perfect outing for all ages, stop at a deli for some fresh bread, charcuterie and local cheese – and you have a feast that no one will be able to turn down. With plenty of space to walk off lunch – and endless views – it’s sure to be a Mother’s Day that will be remembered for years to come.
A hands-on chocolate workshop
Go one step further than simply giving mom chocolate – and try your hand at making your own! The new Lindt Chocolate Studio in Cape Town offers an assortment of delicious classes – from truffles, to chocolate cake and more. Spend some time in the studio together, before enjoying the fruits of your labour. Nothing says “love” more than chocolate-covered fingers.
A spa treatment for two
The Rasul treatment at the Radisson Blu Waterfront is the perfect pampering-for-two. Sit in a steam room and apply exfoliating and detoxifying body masks, before a gentle rain comes down from the ceiling. The intimate environment makes it the perfect option for a mother-daughter-catch up.
