Looking for ways to celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday?
It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday, March 22 and most of the usual places you might have planned to go to celebrate the occasion are temporarily closed for dine-in.
If you’re fortunate enough to be with your mom at this time, there are some ways you can celebrate together at home. If you are both far away and you’re still looking for things to do for her, read along. In this time of social distancing and self-isolation, it can bring us closer to each other than ever!
1. Host An Afternoon Tea At Home
Plan an afternoon tea menu, by including a mix of sweet and savory bites, like small finger sandwiches and baked goods. Either make little things like cookies and cupcakes or you can put in an order from a bakery. Place an order on Talabat from places like Tariq Pastries, Raw Candy, and Mini Delights. Pair up these delicious treats with tea in a proper teapot.
2. Send A Sweet Treat
Baked goods are a perfect way to ring in any celebration or occasion. If your mom has a sweet tooth you can send her a treat and this you can do whether or not you can spend time with her on this day and still be thoughtful.
3. Spa Day At Home
Purchase facemasks and body scrubs from your local grocery store like Carrefour or Alosra or from Diva Beauty Salon available for delivery on Talabat. Make some tea and watch some TV together for the ultimate at-home relaxation.
4. Family Game Night
If you don’t have any board games or puzzles lying around the house you can get from through Geekay or purchase a Lego set from the Lego Store both found at City Centre. There are online delivery options too like Bahrain Board Games, De Vento, Amazon, and Ubuy.com You can also play a few rounds of Go Fish or Tarneeb with the family if you have a deck of cards.
5. Send Her Flowers Or Do Some Gardening Together
Take advantage of the many wonderful flower delivery services in Bahrain such as Singapore Flowers, Pateli Flowers & Chocolates, Alia Flowers, Raheeq Flowers, AFandEF, La Reve Flowers and Sweets and delivery her something special. This you can do whether you will be able to spend time with her on Mother’s Day or not. You can also purchase seeds or plants from Bahrain Plants or online from Plant Shop Bahrain and plant something to grow in your own garden.
6. Breakfast In Bed
Make it or get it delivered! Some take-out options in Bahrain are Ateeq Al Soof available at Talabat and Carriage, Tito’s Cafe, Kunefeci and Saffron by Jena on Talabat. If you plan to do this on your own there are plenty of ways to do this. You can follow these easy breakfast in bed recipes or you can both work on making brunch for added quality time together.
7. At-home yoga together
Just because you can’t go enjoy a yoga class together doesn’t mean you can’t do it at home! Put on a YouTube video and turn your living room or bedroom into an at-home yoga studio. This is a great way to do something together that is proactive and makes you feel refreshed. You can even do this together long-distance by turning it into a video call yoga session.
8. Five-star dining
Make it at home or order it for delivery. Some delivery options are Lantana, Seoul Tokyo on Carriage, Gusto and The Butcher Shop & Grill on Talabat.
