All children of any age should mark Sunday, May 8 on their calendars, as it is Mother’s Day. Time to thank mothers for all the noses they wiped, meals they cooked, school runs they endured and birthday parties they managed to survive.

There are many ways to pamper your mum, from a day at the spa to a brunch complete with bubbles. Here is a range of suggestions to make her feel as special as possible.

Flowers

Almost every lady in the world loves to get flowers, which is probably why Mother’s Day is one of the busiest dates of the year for florists. Are you an organized person with your order placed well in advance, or are you the one ripping a selection of hibiscus, dandelions and maiden plum from the side of the road as you race to your mum’s house?

Supermarkets do carry some nice options if you find yourself stuck, but try to get onto the florist this year if you can to order a really lovely selection of arranged blooms.

Brunch

Sure, brunch may seem like an easy and well-worn choice for Mother’s Day, but really, can anyone ever tire of a beautiful buffet of food and bottomless champagne? The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman will be hosting a special brunch on May 8, so expect to see even more delectable dishes on the tables than usual.

Any restaurants and resorts that offer brunch are usually booked up on the day, so get your reservation in early to avoid disappointment. Don’t forget to think further afield than the Seven Mile area. Tukka in East End has a great brunch with a completely different view to enjoy.

Spa

Get thee and thy mother to one of Cayman’s premier spas for some pampering! From the Renaissance Spa on Walker’s Road to Body Works, Touch of Thai, La Mer Spa, Hibiscus Spa, the Da Vinci Centre and the la prairie spa on Seven Mile, there are many options to choose from. Look for specials in your local listings as Mother’s Day approaches, as there are often specials up for grabs so you can get even more treatments for less.
