Every girl wants a day in which she can feel truly appreciated, possibly pampered, and be surrounded by those she loves. We were all born with a day for this, but for some other ladies in Hong Kong this day falls on the second Sunday in the month of May. We are talking about Mother’s Day, of course, and it is safe to assume that most Mamas would insist that they do not want any kind of present but rather happiness for her children or some good quality time with them. But we children also insist on showing our appreciation for Dear Mum, so for some ideas on how to lavish her with love next week, keep reading below!
Classic Afternoon Tea at The Peninsula
What better way to make Mum feel beautiful and fancy for the afternoon than by treating her to this quintessential Hong Kong activity? A lovely atmosphere with varieties of tea and sweets, this is a sure way to make your Mum feel special while also giving her that precious gift of your time. The Peninsula does not take reservations for Tea Time, and the first-come, first-serve queues are sure to be particularly long due to the holiday. Be sure to get there well before the 2.00 PM start time so you can properly enjoy an elegant afternoon. High Tea closes for the day at 6.00 PM and there is also a minimum $350 charge for each guest. Remind Mum to wear her classiest dress to match the vibe!
With many different cruises to select, the Aqualuna can fit into whatever schedule you planned for Mum! From a daytime Harbour Discovery Tour to an evening Symphony of Lights Cruise that puts you front and center for the daily Symphony of Lights show, the Aqualuna is another relaxing yet special way to treat your mother whilst seeing our beloved city. Sit in a comfortable seat on the approximately 45 minute tour while also sipping on a complimentary drink. And specially for 12 May, there is a special tour to the Cheung Chau Bun Festival! The boat embarks in the morning, serves lunch on board, and then arrives in Cheung Chau in the early afternoon. Don’t forget to protect your skin as you are outside all day!
Does this next suggestion need any introduction? A regular massage is essential for any Hong Kong resident, but especially for Mum! She runs her household, she runs her husband, she holds down a job and a social life, and yet she still has the energy to constantly follow-up with you. Who runs the world? Mum. She needs a good hour or two to have her muscles unwound and relax. So be sure to check out the BloomMe app and pick the best massage for her, be it simply feet or a full Thai Hot Stone Detoxifying Treatment. Check out these special spots for something unique for her!
Yes, one of the many portals to a woman’s heart is jewelry. But for a mum, that portal is especially unlocked if she can show off her children while wearing it. Enter personalised jewelry. From monogramming initials to children’s birthstones or birthdates, personalised accessories are unique and a wonderful way for a mother to talk about her brood without whipping out the wallet photos. There are numerous places to buy such products, but a newcomer to the Hong Kong scene is TSH Jewelry designed by Anicha Patel. All pieces are custom and handcrafted, and, luckily for the expats, the products ship free worldwide. TSH Jewelry products come with a warranty, too. Also exclusive to BloomMe readers is a 15% discount code. Simply enter BLOOMME at checkout!
