It’s May, it just can’t be! My head is still in March. Oh well, both begin with M, so I can be forgiven.
And speaking of May, Mother’s Day is on May 13, so not too long to get your gift for her.
A great idea is to treat your mom to lunch out at one of our wonderful local restaurants, but I do believe some are already fully booked. So, if you are considering this, don’t leave it any later to book.
Most women enjoy browsing through magazines and this is a gift that keeps giving. All magazines have contact details regarding subscriptions. Of course, our Caxton magazines are fabulous and you can choose from many, such as Woman and Home, Country Life, Food and Home Entertaining, Garden and Home, to name but a few. It’s so easy, contact 087 405 2005 or email: [email protected]
Always a great idea for the mom who has everything! Choose a mall gift voucher from The Glen, Alberton City or Mall of the South. Available at Customer Services. Or purchase one from a particular store such as Woolworths, Edgars, Foschini or Miladys. I’m sure most stores sell gift vouchers. With winter around the corner maybe your mom can then treat herself to a new jersey, boots, slippers, a dressing gown, or whatever else tickles her fancy. She can even spend a Woolworths voucher in the food hall. Choosing a mall voucher is sometimes better because she can then choose from a wide range of stores to spend her gift. Otherwise a book or CD voucher are also good ideas.
In my opinion you just can’t beat beautiful candles, especially Yankee. Their fragrances are beyond amazing. I always have one burning in my bathroom when I enjoy a luxurious bubble bath. You can’t beat it for total relaxation.
Chateau Gateaux Patisserie
New in The Glen Shopping Centre, an irresistible cake shop to go crazy for with exceptional handmade quality gateaux, desserts and pastries. Only the finest fresh cream, chocolate, fruit and nuts are used resulting in masterpieces. They have spent over two decades perfecting the art of sealed-in freshness through their unique fresh to frozen process. It means they do not need to add any preservatives and the retained flavor and quality is guaranteed. Not only can you purchase a whole cake (24cm or 18cm diameter) but slices of cake. Choose from Mozart, Black Forest Gateau, Swiss Carrot Cake, Walnut Truffle or Cheesecakes (Strawberry, Passionate Lemon, Baked Chocolate or Andrea’s Baked Cheesecake). Mousse Gateaux too, as well as Hot Puddings and individual gateaux and cheesecakes. The 24cm diameter ranges from R262 to R363 and believe me, you can get 12 decent slices from the 24cm cake, I managed to get 16. Absolutely delicious, you have to try.
Yes, even moms love chocolates and sweets and at Tasko Sweets you’ll find delicious imported chocolates, perfect for mom. Find them at New Redruth Village Alberton and new in Glenvista Shopping Centre, Glenvista (lower level car park). Fantastic prices, even the imported sweets and chocolates are great value. Also gift bags, wrappings and ribbons at the Glenvista shop.
That’s it for this week. Shop till you drop.
