Breakfast in bed

We know it’s what we do every year, but it never gets old! There’s just something so sweet about letting mom sleep in while we make breakfast for her and then surprise her in bed with some pancakes and, of course, coffee! Maybe to make her wake up a little more meaningful by adding a little flower or a sweet “Happy Momma’s Day” note – we promise this will just make her heart melt.

Sunrise walks

If mom is not really one for eating first thing in the morning, why not wake her up and go for a nice peaceful walk to watch the sunrise. Wake up early, grab your Kikki and Franki protective masks and enjoy the quiet fresh air this Sunday morning. According to the law, we are able to go for a walk or run from 6am to 9am – let’s take advantage of that today and enjoy our nation’s beautiful weather!

Movie days and book days are the best days

Mmmm. Hot chocolate, popcorn and a good movie always sounds good! Let’s be honest, our moms would go to the ends of the earth to see us smile, they deserve a little rest. Put on a good movie, sit back and relax. Simply enjoy each other’s company and let mom do absolutely nothing today. If mom isn’t a tv person, let her read her favourite book, or do whatever she enjoys – it’s the least we can do.

10 simple gift ideas for Mother’s Day

  1. A massage. This never fails! Whether mom wants her feet rubbed or her back, the perfect gift is always a little spa treatment.
  2. A self-care box. All girls love a little body cream, bath bombs and face masks! It’s the perfect opportunity to get all her favourite skin care and self-love products.
  3. Flowers. Yes, they actually work. Get mom her favourite flowers from your nearest supermarket and put a smile on her face.
  4. Baked goodies. If your mom has a sweet tooth, bake her some cookies or cupcakes or her favourite go-to snack (just promise to clean the kitchen when you’re done)!
  5. Home arts and crafts. Good news, certain art products are available to purchase! If your mom is the artsy type, get everyone in your home together and have a fun art day!
  6. Serenades. We know, super cliché, but so super special! Sing mom a special song – “Mom” by Meghan Trainor is a good option!
  7. A photo frame. What better gift than a photo of mom’s loved ones?
  8. An at home picnic. Grab some simple ingredients, make some sandwiches and have a picnic outside, or if the weather sucks where you are. Have a picnic by the fire place!
  9. A handmade Mother’s Day card. Words have power, so spread some love to your momma with your words!
  10. Hugs and kisses. Sometimes, it’s the small things that matter the most.

We totally understand “writers block”, especially when it comes to expressing our feelings. The good news is that you don’t have to be an incredible writer or a poet to write your mom a really special letter for this Mother’s Day. Here are some quotes we found to inspire you to write a special card for your momma:

[divider height=”0px” color=”rgb(255, 255, 255)”]

  1. “A mother is your first friend, your best friend, and your forever friend.” – Anonymous. You can tell her how grateful you are that she makes you comfortable to tell her anything and everything, knowing that she will never judge you and always be there for you!
  2. “My mother is a walking miracle.”-Leonardo Decaprio. Here you can talk about her strength after all she’s gone through, and how she’s still able to live with joy!
  3. “A mother’s hug lasts long after she lets go.”-Anonymous. Here you can mention how special her touch is to you – no one hugs can ever measure up to mom’s hugs.
  4. “A mother’s love is more beautiful than any fresh flower.” – Debbasish Mridha. You can explain to her what a blessing her motherly love is in your life.
  5. “There is no way to be perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.” – Jill Churchill. Here you can tell her what an incredible job she is constantly doing. Moms doubt themselves a lot, even they need to be reminded that they’re the best mom you could ever ask for.
  6. “My mother’s menu consisted of 2 choices: Take it, or leave it.”-Buddy Hackett. A little humour never hurt anybody! There’s no arm in making mom laugh this Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to the children who have gone through a loss. With everything going on right now, not just in South Africa, but in the entire world, we understand that today is not a joyful day for everyone. Many mothers have been lost this year due to Covid-19. Many mothers have been lost due to different reasons. Those of us who have our mothers around still need to realize how blessed we are. To still feel our mom’s warm hugs, hear her calming voice and see her perfect smile really is one of the biggest blessings in life. We all need our moms, no matter how old we are.

Holding on to nothing but a memory of someone so dear to our hearts is a different kind of pain that only time can heal. Our prayers go out to all of you who don’t have their moms around anymore – we’re thinking of you today. Here are a few reminders to put a smile on your face this Mother’s Day:

[divider height=”0px” color=”rgb(255, 255, 255)”]

  • Remember how warm your mom’s hugs were. It’s okay if this hurts. Sometimes, it’s good to let those tears roll.
  • Remember your mom’s smile and how it would brighten up any room she entered, and how the memory of it still cheers you up today.
  • Remember your mom’s contagious laugh and how it was, and will always be, your absolute favourite sound in the whole world.
  • Remember your mom’s wise words and incredible advice that always helped you through your darkest times.
  • Remember the person your mom was and the role she played in your life. Moms truly are superheroes. You used to be her angel, and now, she’s yours.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the strong moms who have gone through a loss. This is a topic we hold very close to our hearts here at Kikki and Franki. We speak to so many moms on a daily basis and we get the privilege to hear their personal stories regarding their pregnancies – this therefore includes their pregnancy losses as well. We can only imagine how difficult this day must be for all of you. We understand that no words can truly erase that painful memory of what you have gone through, whether you went through it alone, or with a loving husband by your side.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to all the moms and dads today that have gone through trauma regarding their beautiful children. We hope that your days become brighter and your hearts a little lighter. Please remember that you are not alone. You will never be alone. We hope your rainbow comes soon.
