Honor the woman of the familyLocal | Bernard Charnwut Chan 5 May 2021
While every day should be Mother's Day we dedicate a special Sunday in May to celebrate the women in our lives who do so much, all while holding our families together.
With Mother's Day fast approaching - it's on May 9 - what better excuse to spoil our incredible mothers, grandmothers, wives, sisters, and aunts to show them just how appreciated they are.
You could start the day off with the time-honored gift of a bouquet.
Another great gift idea is a hamper. It could be from a shop you know she loves, or show a little extra thoughtfulness and make a customized one yourself, packed with all her favorite things.
Some ideas: champagne, chocolate, baked goods or a stay-at-home spa set.
From there you could take a scenic walk in one of Hong Kong's many parks such as Tai Po Waterfront Park or hike up Tai Mo Shan to reach the highest peak in Hong Kong.
For the more adventurous, a fun day trip out to the beaches of south Lantau could be in order for a day of sun and ocean waves.
To cap off the evening, perhaps a dinner at mom's favorite local restaurant or, better yet, prepare a home-cooked meal yourself with her most-loved dishes for that personal touch.
No matter how life changes, it will always be important to show the women who raised us how valued they are. What better way to do that than to give them a day off to unwind and let someone else do the planning for once?
However you choose to celebrate this year make sure the women in your life know you cherish them, on Mother's Day and every day.
