Moms have a special way of adding a little magic to their children’s lives.
When I think of all the thoughtful things my mom has done for me, I feel particularly inspired to do something over the top for her this Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 8th). Here are gifts I’m contemplating:
1. An overnight stay at one of the world’s most luxurious hotels: Shangri-La
Though they’re cliché, moms love them. How could they not? I’d pick up a box of Purdy’s Hedgehogs (my mom’s and my favorite) or a selection of truffles from top chocolatier, ChocolaTas. My mom and I have a thing for ladybugs, making these perfect.
3. Brunch at Market, one of my favorite restaurants in the city.
They’re offering a 3-course brunch menu for $42. Though Scallop Sashimi isn’t ‘brunch’, I’d order it. This new item is one of the best things I’ve tasted (mark my words!).
One of the sweetest things about my mom is that whenever I ask her what she wants as a gift, she says, ‘nothing…just your love’. But of course, she must already know this feeling is completely unconditional.
Aren’t moms the best?
