It’s a date set aside for us annually to show our appreciation for the women who raised, supported, and continue to inspire us. We’ve curated a best-in-class gift guide to assist you in returning that selfless generosity – from afternoon tea to fashion, food and wine, this luxury gift guide is home to only the finest products and experiences. There’s something here for every type of mama:
For the mum that loves indulgence
George Jardine’s new menu x Afternoon Tea at The Nellie
The new menu features savoury and sweet delights carefully prepared by pastry chef Vicky Gurovich and newly appointed executive chef George Jardine, so you just can’t go wrong with Cape Town’s finest afternoon tea at inner city sanctuary Mount Nelson, a Belmond Hotel. From the glass of Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial on arrival, to the soulful music of the grand piano, the experience will be memorable. P.S for an indulgent afternoon of pampering, book the ‘Bliss Package’ at the Librisa Spa – start with a soothing 60-min Swedish massage, followed by the legendary afternoon tea. Self-care has never felt or tasted so good.
