How to spoil mom during lockdown

For many, Mother’s Day will look very different this year. But there are ways to treat the mother figures in your life, even from a distance. Here are some of our favourite food delivery services that are doing special Mother’s Day deliveries this Sunday, 10 May.

Brik Café

In Johannesburg, the eco-conscious Brik Café is spoiling moms with a gift box that includes not only sweet treats but also fynbos tea, rooibos chai, kombucha and hand sanitiser. The cost is R480, which includes delivery.

Essentials by Ryan Cole

If you’re in the Cape Town area, why not gift mom with a high tea, courtesy of Salsify’s Ryan Cole? Some of the delights on the menu include rosemary-and-olive focaccia, chocolate mousse cake, and a carrot-and-walnut cupcake. It costs R395 for two people, plus a R50 delivery fee.

Shoots and Leaves

In Umhlanga, the Shoots and Leaves Mother’s Day hampers include chocolate brownies, date balls and hummus, as well as a microgreens kit, so mom can spend lockdown growing something that will last a while to come.
