On this Mother’s Day, make her feel like the most precious thing in your world

For the mother with a sweet tooth


Tabinda Aftab’s Mothers Day special basket is full of love and gratitude for the mother who has nurtured and cherished you. Each basket has six carrot cupcakes, six strawberry tarts, three sugar cookies, three shortbread cookies, chocolate covered almonds, pieces of chocolate hearts with a picture frame and flowers all presented beautifully in a basket for Rs5,000.


For Mother’s Day, Pie in the Sky is offering special Mother’s Day cakes in two frosting styles: fondant and butter cream. Now is the time to satisfy your mother’s sweet cravings without having to break your piggy bank.

Take mummy candy shopping to Lals and get a two piece chocolate box complimentary on a bill of Rs1,000 and a Lals four-piece chocolate box on a bill of Rs1,500.

If nothing works, you always have a cup of frozen yogurt to come to the rescue. Take your mother to Snog this Mother’s Day and get three free toppings.

For the well-dressed mother


Label’s is the place to be this Mothers Day for the moms who love to dress up. Affordable yet nice clothes are hard to find and the deal at Labels is perfect for this day. While mothers love to dress they also like to be groomed and pampered. Spend Rs5,000 at the store this week and get a Super Mom Trophy and a gift card for OPI Manicure and Pedicure at Sunuba Spa for free.


Get your haircut, manicure, pedicure and facials done at Alle’Nora by Aliya Tipu and get the second of the same service for free.

If your mother is slightly high-maintenance, Toni & Guy has a number of exclusive Mother’s Day packages just for the one who likes to be pampered in style. You can choose from a number of package available such as Gold Mask Hair Treatment with volume blow-dry or Express Facial Treatment with blow-dry.


Nirvana Day Spa and Beauty Salon is offering a number of Mother’s Day packages for mothers such as a body scrub and facial or honey milk bath and facial.

For the simple mother

If your mother has simple tastes the best gift you can give her is a deliciously made home cooked meal. Breakfast in bed is an ideal way to start off your Mother’s Day. Give her a break and let her relax while you do all the household chores. There is no mother who doesn’t like flowers, so walk into Narcissus, buy a beautiful bouquet and get 10 per cent off your purchase.

Sweet gestures that won’t burn your pocket

A personalised calendar with her favourite family pictures for each month

Have a girl’s night in and watch a movie together

Rewrite her recipes neatly in a new notebook

Give her a pedicure at home

Burn a CD of her favourite classics and play them all day long

ishrat salim | 9 years ago | Reply We love them & pamper them - every day....don`t we " GUYS from the News Desk " ? so why for a special day ? in Pakistan we love to copy the West..but we do not copy lots of other good things of them ? we are such a hipocrite.Our 80 % mothers live in rural areas, so what`s so special about such an event ? this event is for only 20 % ? who will spend lavishly with SMS, MMS , telecon & expensive gifts while 80 % of our mothers who live below poverty lines shall pray for their loved ones to return safely back home- everyday..what is there for them ? Yes ! this day wud hv been significant if we remembered these 80 % mothers & provide them with " Smile " which cost " zilch " & spent that money on them & their children....
