Mother’s Day Spoils

Mother’s Day can be confusing in the multi-cultural society that is the UAE – with such a vast number of nationalities in one place, many of which celebrate Mother’s Day at different times of the year, it all becomes a bit puzzling – especially for the dads. consider this your ‘heads up’ if you’re from the USA, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, the Philippines or South Africa where Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May – that’s this coming Sunday, 12 May.

It’s time to get the gift ideas rolling. And let me tell you, this isn’t the day for flying blind, so if you have been on the slow side of things we are here to give you a last minute helping hand. We have put together a roundup of some of our favourite goodies for mums, grans, nans, big sisters, best friends or aunties (or pop them on your wish list and eliminate the guessing game for your nearest and dearest). Grab a cuppa, kick back and check out our Mother’s Day gift guide.

  • While the kids and I have been enjoying some quality time with special friends and fam in South Africa, the orders and enquiries over at @fronteriors are coming in thick and fast. @liveloudgirl and I couldn't be more grateful for all the love, support and enthusiasm shown towards our new venture. 
We are so excited to be sharing the next installments to our collection of doors, sides, tops and accessories for your much-loved IKEA frames. This cane cabinet (constructed with 2 x 128x60xm Besta cabinets and supported on our custom leg frame) is proving to be a firm favourite. Talk about 'furniture in disguise', eh!? image by @marli_smithphotography

  • Me just before I felt the wind temp and added another 3 layers of clothing ... 🙈❄
  • Brrr, game drives this past weekend have been sooo cold. I think all the animals are in hiding and frankly, I don't blame them. You know the game viewing is dismal when rangers are calling in giraffe sightings on the radio! But they're still one of my favourite animals to see so no complaints here 🦒💛❄🥶
  • It takes a special brand of crazy to enjoy sunset swims in rough water in the middle of winter. These kids have it in abundance. #holidays #kzn #saltrock #southafrica #travelwithkids #bestofhome #bestoftimes
  • Sorry about the radio silence around here but our first week in South Africa has been a very busy whirlwind. We settled into #hawkesholidayhome and then headed into the Midlands to drive my niece and nephew back to their boarding schools. While we were there, we made a mini vacay of it with a two night stay at beautiful Gowrie Farm. We visited loads of places, including the iconic sculpture of Madiba at the Nelson Mandela capture site. We're loving the weather and catch-ups with loads of friends and family, but really looking forward to getting into the bush at Zuka this weekend for some proper downtime with Ouma.
  • We've had such a wonderful 2 night stay at @housedatdru on Gowrie Farm. It's such a beautiful estate with so much to see and do in the area. Highly recommend
  • Crisp winter evenings in the KZN midlands are just magical. We are loving our stay at @housedatdru

  • It's so good to be back home in crisp, fresh air, lush greenery and small boutique stores everywhere!

  • The epic summer exit pack has begun and by this time tomorrow I'm going to be (hopefully) chilling right here in our living room at #hawkesholidayhome ... Actually, who am I kidding!? There will first have to be the epic unpack, and then I guess we'll need some grocery shopping done, and then the kids will be nagging me to go to the beach. But we'll be 'home' and it won't feel like someone left the oven door open. So that''s something to get excited about!
