SPOIL MAMA ON HER DAY

She gets one day a year, so make it count with Carriage By bazaar staff

Spoil your mom with yummy sweet treats, hot chocolate, and more with Carriage!

You should be celebrating your mother 365 days of the year. One day a year is just not enough, but most mothers will still take it. And let’s be very clear, no amount of gourmet chocolate, bouquets of flowers or even jewelry will equal the effort that moms make. But it’s nice to still be acknowledged. If you ask your mother what she would like, the odds are that she will most likely say “nothing” or “your happiness”. Which is probably true, but it also means “appreciate me”. You absolutely must buy her a gift. But more importantly, you should spend some quality time with her. Put away the phone (yours and hers) and enjoy each other’s company. You could treat her to a night on the town, but we prefer a more low-key approach at home. And for any get-together, snacks and treats are a given. And with Carriage, you can plan ahead to make sure the night is a success for everyone involved. There are dozens of options, and that can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but we are here to make your life easier and to free up your brain’s bandwidth so you can focus on making mom happy. If your mother is the sentimental or traditional type, you could get her a beautiful tin from Nagwa. We love their delicate Darabeels, perfect with coffee and tea, plus the 20

packaging is gorgeous and makes for a great memento. Another great option is Dmlooj. Cinnamon, saffron and pistachios, how could you possibly go wrong? If your mom is the more playful and spontaneous type, she needs fortune cookies in her life, and Twaif Diner’s fortunes are funny and witty, making sure that everyone will be laughing for sure. Conversation and catching up is fantastic, but a joined project with mom can be even more fun. If you have fond memories of helping your mother bake a cake, then a cake decorating box from Monty’s Bakery should be in your Carriage cart right now. You get a baked cake and all of the decorating supplies. All the fun, all the sugar, with none of the mess or cleanup. Don’t forget to take pictures of your combined efforts to keep the memory forever once the cake has been devoured. We want our parents to stay young and healthy forever, and you can still treat them to sweet goodness without hurting their health. Firin Bakery specializes in gluten free baked goods. You can choose from cookies, cakes, muffins and more. Some of the options are vegan too. If mom is watching her sugar or fat intake, J’s Bakery will deliver something wholesome and healthy right to your door. For a treat that is on the fancier side, we think that no one makes pretty eclairs like Rococoa or gourmet dates like Dasman Dates. Only the best for mama! If it’s going to be a huge family gathering, you should also take care of the food, your mom should not be slaving away

in the kitchen to feed you. Nor should you be wasting time cooking, that could be better spent with your loved ones. Carriage has got you covered. You can do a light brunch from Just Man'ousha or an all-out traditional dinner from Baytoti, depending on what you’re in the mood for. While you still have the app open, click on the Flowers category and find the biggest bouquet of pretty flowers. Because while mothers are practical and will object to a gift that will be wilting in a week, they secretly love receiving them. You could have all of these amazing things delivered directly to your mom by adding her address to Carriage, which is a great opportunity to surprise her every once in a while, with a delicious meal so she doesn’t have to cook for the day. If your mom is not so tech-savvy, maybe you should show her the app so she can give herself days off when she needs to. Alternatively, have everything delivered to your address so you can wrap the gift and the sweets together to go with the flowers. Now, all that is left is to go enjoy her company and give her a huge hug. Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome moms out there!
