Her love is endless and in most cases, a mom can be compared to a diamond; she represents love, strength and perseverance. There’s simply nothing your mother won’t do to make you happy. Why not return the favour this Mother’s Day by spoiling her with one of these top 10 spectacular celebration ideas?
Whisk her away on a trip
It’s not every day a mother is able to escape her busy schedule and enjoy a relaxing trip away from home. Surprise her with the ultimate getaway by booking her into a guesthouse or lodge over Mother’s Day weekend. Make sure the venue has a pool, delicious breakfast and a spa. This way, she will have everything she needs to enjoy a bit of downtime.
Book a pampering session
Being a mother is anything but easy and can sometimes be a bit exhausting. Show her just how much you appreciate her by booking her for an entire day of pampering. Give her that time to rest and relax a little bit. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a day at the spa, it can also be a few relaxing things you could do for your mother at home. For example, a relaxing bath session or an opportunity for her to sleep until 9 am without any interruptions. Find out what she would appreciate most and be creative.
Surprise her with a homemade dinner
Make your mom feel extra special by spoiling her with one of her favourite home cooked meals. Decorate the dinner table with her favourite colours and place special notes of how much you appreciate her around her plate. Top the evening off with a one of a kind gift she will remember forever.

During the diamond tour, your mother will experience the fascinating world of diamonds like she's never seen it before and be treated to a glass of fine South African wine. To make the journey even more memorable, select a few jewellery designs from our Gifts for Mom gift guide and arrange for a bespoke jewellery item to be waiting for her in the luxurious Shimansky Showroom.

Take her to the movies
Sometimes a trip to the cinema is just as special as dinner at a restaurant. Make sure to do your research and book tickets to a movie with an exceptional rating for you and your mom. This way, you and your mother will be able to enjoy that quality time together you both have been longing for, for so long.
Take her for a shopping spree
When a mother goes shopping it’s usually for groceries or for the rest of the family. Why not spoil her with a special shopping spree just for her? Make sure to take her to all her favourite shops and then treat her to a one-on-one lunch or dinner with the rest of the family.
Spoil her with a Dancing Diamond or Tanzanite pendant
To celebrate the special women in our lives that truly give us everything make sure to spoil her with a gift she can hold onto forever. Spoil her with a one of a kind Shimansky Rose Gold Dancing Diamond or White Gold Dancing Tanzanite pendant. The gemstone is suspended from two fine points and dances in delight when worn, making her sparkle with every move she makes.
Enjoy a Mother’s Day picnic
There’s nothing more spectacular than a relaxing autumn picnic in the month of May. Make sure to pack a delicious picnic basket and a blanket with a nice bottle of wine. Enjoy quality time with the family while celebrating your mother in style. She will most certainly enjoy a beautiful day outside in nature.
Explore a class together
For some quality time with your mother book an experience, you both will enjoy. For example, head over for a wine-tasting course, cooking session or a painting class. During these unique experiences, you will be able to spend time with one another, have fun and even end up learning something new together.
Make a personalised album
Love is all about celebrating those special memories you share with one another. Create a personalised album of all the good times you’ve shared together. This could either be done electronically or you can print the images and place it in a personalised album. Your mother will definitely spend hours paging through the spectacular moments you spend together as a family.
