You know what her heartbeat sounds like from the inside…Celebrate mom with some of our ideas for gifts, unique brunch dates, quality time adventures and start celebrating early with our Mother’s Day Creative Workshop on 12 May.
If your little ones are too small to know what you want beyond a multitude of cuddles, enjoy treating yourself to something special!
For the diary
When pouring your thoughts onto paper, every lady should have a pen in hand just that matches the value and importance of your creative mind at work. The cheerful flamingo Ambition OpArt pen by Farber-Castell is a fun way to add a little slice of paradise to your daily routine.
Sitting through a stuffy brunch is no fun for you if the little monkeys are swinging from chair to chair with ants in their pants. So go kid style and switch up white linens for Zurich’s 2nd Burger Festival for casual and stress-free dining. Then walk over to the picturesque Landiwiese for some good ole-fashioned games of frisbee, hide & seek and duck, duck, goose.
Moms Night Out
Swap the sweats for stilettos and gather the ladies for a Moms Night Out! Kaufleuten dances the night away with salsa, mambo and more!
Moms rarely spend money on themselves and splurging is practically unheard of! So do it for them… spoil her with posh pram pushing footwear from GNL, sizzle her sexiness from the hand-made leather luxury line YVY or one can never go wrong with a classic Chanel handbag.
Rest, Relax, Recuperate
For some moms, relaxation has not been part of her vocabulary since D-Day, but that shouldn’t be the case and what better time to start than today. Take her to the cinema, book her a manicure or simply buy her a trashy romance novel and make her a reservation (alone) at a quaint cafe like Kafi Paradiesli.
Moms Capturing Memories
If you haven’t done family portraits, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to buy the matching outfits and force dad to smile & pose. Try a kid-friendly photographer like Andaleeb Lilley and capture these days before they’re gone.
If you’ve already snapped more photos than you know what to do with, print, canvas, frame…whatever you wish but get them off that cloud and into your living room! Try Book Factory for creating photo gifts and most larger Migros and Media Marts have in-store high-end printers.
Not your Regular Sunday Brunch.
Escape the city for a unique & memorable outing like soaking up nature at the fascinating Goldau Animal Park’s gorgeous setting and Buffet Brunch; Swiss it up with a farm Brunch by Swiss Tavolata; eat with the Sea Lions before hitting the amusement park rides at Connyland or make it a fairytale weekend by dining like the queen that you are at the Chillon Castle close to Montreux.
Traditionalists at Heart
And for those that cherish a scrumptious grand buffet with flowers & chocolates try one of Zurich’s premier hotels like the Kameha Grand, Marriott or Uetliberg’s Uto Kulm.
