Published

on

We know that we are mothers’ greatest gift, but let’s be real for a while, there are other great gifts that you can get her on her special day. So even if your mother tells you she wants nothing but to see you happy, know that this just her selfless instinct talking.

Now we know that each mom has a different taste, so in this list, we’ll try as much as possible to offer ideas for gifts that shall appeal to all kind of tastes.

1- Customized Jewelry- Abboud Jewelry 

Each piece is handmade and each design will bring out the details that only a mother would feel so special towards them, so what is better than for a mother to wear her kids’ own designs? It’s very sentimental; you can order a specific design, or choose one of their ready designs.

Another choice would be to buy one of their famous designs with quotes engraved on them, you can have them customize one for you as well; so your mom would always carry a message from you, close to her heart.

2- A Painting

You can have a family portrayed painted, and hanged on her bedroom wall. Again, mothers will love to see everyone included in that portrait.

3- Book Her a Spa Day

Another great gift would be to spoil her with a day of relaxation, so book a spa day for the both of you including a facial, a mani and pedi; because one extra point is that you’ll get to spend quality time together, which is exactly what your mom would want.

4- Foot Massager

Or even better, bring her the spa time at home, so she can enjoy a message at anytime she wants. Because after a long day at work or at home, that’s exactly the kind of spoiling that she deserves.

You can find it on Souq.com: https://egypt.souq.com/eg-en/foot-massager/s/

5- Vintage jewelry 

If your mum is an old-school and an antique lover, then this Instagram page will definitely serve your purpose. They have several one of a kind vintage pieces, that stand out. In each post, you will find the story behind each piece written; which gives their jewelry a deeper meaning.

They have a variety of brooches, earnings, necklaces and more.

6- Prepare Dinner

Giving your mother an off-day is another good idea, so let her sit back and relax while you cook dinner for a change. Just make sure you clean the kitchen afterwards, because a messy kitchen can make the whole gesture backfires.

7- Home Decorations

If your mother is into home decorations and loves to shop from Ikea, then a home makeover is yet another nice idea. You can also make it as a surprise, clean the house and add some touches with the new decorations you will buy.

There are of course many other options, from perfumes, shoes, bags to makeup and clothing. What matters is that whatever you choose, make sure it reflects the personality of your mother. Also, what really counts is for you to spend quality time together, not just on that day, but every single day.

Turning the spotlight towards Asmaa and her rising star Lara

Published

By

As mother’s day is upon us, we have sat down with the lovely Asmaa Sherif Mounir and her beautiful daughter Lara. The interview was a delightful one, and definitely one of a kind.

We took advantage of the nice weather and headed to Grand Nile Hotel where we were greeted with an incredible view, delicious food and a very friendly staff. Everything was catered to our comfort; which made the interview even more delightful.


The first thing that Asmaa shared with us is their morning routine, she told us that they always have breakfast together, and then they might watch something together. It was then that Lara shared with us a heartwarming story of the time she made breakfast in bed. The 6 year old, made her mommy breakfast, because she wasn’t feeling okay. How cute is she?

She then shared with us the thing that they enjoy doing together which is crafting and making DIYs, and as for Asmaa’s free time, she enjoys listening to music.
We asked her about her feeling when she found out she’s pregnant, she said she got really excited about it, and she even remember the movie she was watching when she found out about her pregnancy, and that she immediately called up her entire family to share with them the happy news.

Having both Asmaa and her daughter Lara inspired us to do a small competition, in which we asked each of them a question about the other one and see who gets them all right. While Lara’s superpower wish would be to fly. Her answer of what superpower her mommy would want was just so witty and smart! She said ‘I would say invisibility, because like you have all this attention and you would like some space for yourself.’

Lara’s favourite meal is fries, and Asmaa’s favourite is apparently duck? Well, at this point, Lara was so tired.

We asked Asmaa how she shows support to Lara, she told us that she gives her own space to dance, draw, sing, basically do whatever it is that she wants. She is always giving her the space to let out her energy; this way she would know what skills she has, and she can then support this talent of hers.

As for the things they have in common is the way they talk, their anger and stubbornness.


Asmaa also revealed to us the reason behind choosing the name Lara, she said that she wanted to give her an easy name, one she can learn quickly and no one would get wrong.

She expressed her enthusiasm about having a baby girl, and told us that she has always wished for one, so she can play with her, do make up together, and basically do together everything girly!


Finally, we asked Asmaa to give a tip to all the future mommies, in which she advices them to be more involved in their kids’ lives and to share every moment with them, also to never rush into things, and to enrich them not with money, but through developing their talents, and creating memories with them that they shall cherish forever.

An Open Letter to the Moms Who are Also The Fathers

Published

on

By

To the mother who was also a father, who took on a role that wasn’t hers to fill but she did anyway, and excelled at it. The mother who wanted to scream and cry, but didn’t have the time to do so, and so wiped the tear and carried on with her mother/ father duties.

She is a woman who showed persistence, who against all odds raised kids who didn’t sense the void that a father left. She is an incredible woman, who stood against societal stereotypes of single moms and widows.

Stereotypes that often tried to break her, looks of individuals that often sting. Whether they are sympathy looks, or astonishment, they always held questions that she never really wanted to answer.

How does she do it?

She must be miserable.

Poor thing.

Well, she is not. She has beautiful children who make it up for her, and how does she do it? Through the power of a mother. That power that pushes her day by day, to keep going, to not breakdown. But let me tell you this, many times she does, she breaks down, she doubts herself a lot, but what truly matters is that she stands up again, every. single. time.

To the mother who was also a father, a sister and a friend. To all the things you have sacrificed for the sake of your kids, and to all the feelings you have kept inside. One day, your kids will mature, and you will be able to share the burdens you hid. You’re raising the kids, who one day, will help ease these burdens.

I know that it is so hard for a husband to leave you, whether he left on purpose, or passed away. It is hard to maintain his role, but trust me, you can. And I know sometimes you think the worse of yourself, that you can do more and can do better, but trust me, you’re doing just fine, you’re doing the very best you can.

So to the mother who was also a father, Happy Mother’s/ Father’s day. You rock your children’s world.
