Great gifting ideas for Mother’s Day

MAY 3, 2016

Moms are very special people. They nurture, care, comfort and love. In short, they give so much to us.  Mother’s Day is our opportunity to give back that very special woman in our lives.

We, at Home Food and Travel, came up with a list of items that we know mom’s love and then we spoke to the people who can assist you in providing your mom with that special gift.


The owner of Havilah Designer JewellersCarol Jackson, says; “Give the gift that lasts a lifetime this Mother’s Day. Flowers last a week, perfume lasts a year, but a thoughtfully chosen jewellery gift will be loved and enjoyed forever. Let Havilah custom design your perfect gift or choose from something special from our range of international jewellery brands- Pandora, Engelsrufer, Nomination and Bering.” Call: 041 5811942 Email: [email protected]
