Don’t be boring this Father’s Day – we have 5 gift ideas for you!

Why do we always go for the traditional gifts for dad for Fathers Day? The socks, gadgets and DIY, ring a bell? Our first instinct is to grab the all familiar, sometimes impulsive or last minute item off the shelf. Well not all of us, we know some of you go that extra mile to spoil your dad, planning in advance and choosing just the right item to show how much you love him.

For those that need a little more guidance on picking something a little different this year we have put a list together for you:

1- A day at the spa for him – most of our fathers work hard each day and have plenty stress weighing them down. They would not think twice about booking themselves some indulgence at the spa. So why not make the decision for them and help them take the leap. They get to really relax, let that stress melt away and enjoy the day. This might even be his first time having a spa treatment, so maybe choose something you know your dad will be comfortable with.

2- Weekend away, if your budget allows, nothing beats some quality time together and creating more family memories. Weather this is for your dad or your husband, or both, bringing everyone together in a beautiful setting with activities and shared experiences is one of the books and something awesome to post to Facebook.

3- Are your kids still small? Why not do some arts and crafts? Not all gifts need to cost an arm and a leg, they may cost you some soap and extra cleaning up as you try to remedy the paint that has found its way onto everything. Pinterest has hundreds of Fathers Day craft ideas to use for inspiration and it’s something fun to keep the children entertained too. They will run through Sunday morning with more pep in their step, knowing they did it themselves.

4 – We as women would like to give those DIY tools and projects to our hubbies, with a giant hint, hint for them to do all those items we have had on the “to do list” – but maybe dad wants to be celebrated for being a dad. Raising his kids and having something that reflects his contribution? Why not some lovely framed photos of your kids? A set to put in his office or you could arrange a fun family shoot.

5 – Plan a fun activity, has dad wanted to always do something and never taken the leap? Think… shark cage diving, getting that tattoo he always wanted, learning to cook with professional lessons or taking up a new hobby?

Connect Again

Do you find that reconnecting with your loved one is becoming increasingly difficult in our fast pace life. We live in a world of technology, technology that is meant to bring us together and not pull us apart, instead, we spend so much screen time, chatting to people out of our homes, and we forget to focus on who is in the room with us.

You might be bringing your work home with you each night, and therefore, all your concentration goes towards reaching your deadlines and not checking in your emotional relationships.

Pencilling in time for your partner is a great idea, physically and mentally putting a date in time in your diary to make them a priority.

Facilities_KO_2082

This past week, I did a little eek and half jumped off my seat, when I saw the latest night out for couples or friends at the La Vita Spa at the Palace. They have put together this amazing package, like no jokes… amazing…. with huge value for money.

Their Superb Spa & Dine Experience is only offered at the Palace in Durban for now, so if you live close by, I would really take advantage of this, or if you plan to visit for a vacation, at only R1450 per couple.

What you get:

Treatments x 3 each

  • Rejuvenating Foot Exfoliation & Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Swedish Full Body Massage

Includes a 3 course dinner, red or white wine, soft drink, coffee and tea. To see the full menu, go here.

The Palace is a sophisticated venue, overlooking the glittering Durban promenade, this is certainly a space where you can truly relax and rekindle with your loved one. I highly suggest booking to stay the night or two or three, as you certainly won’t want to get in your car and drive away after this night. Wake up and have breakfast and watch the sunrise over the east coast.

Traveling with Mum – Mothers Day Inspiration  

As a daughter, Mothers Day gives me the ideal opportunity to tell my mum how much I love, respect, appreciate and admire her. It also reminds me to aspire and make my mum proud of who I am today all because of her sacrifices.

My mum is my best friend and we spend lots of time together doing lots of different things. Travel is one of our passions that mum and I share. We recently spent a few weeks in India exploring the sights, sounds and colour of this beautiful country. Visiting the Taj Mahal one of the 10 wonders of the world was one of the highlights of our trip and not forgetting elephant riding around the Amber fort. Mum is more adventurous than I am and will give anything extreme a try. This year mum and I plan to explore Hong Kong and Thailand together for her 70th birthday.
With Mothers Day around the corner, both adults and children start searching for new ways to make the most important person in their lives feel extra special.

Taking the time to research mum’s hobbies show you care, and can result in a fantastic new gift that she would not normally purchase for herself.

I have come up with a few suggestions to help you celebrate Mothers Day and spoil the woman in your life.

➢ Visit La Vita Spa online store http://www.lavitaspas.com for gift ideas

➢ Book the Mother & Daughter Spa Package as a treat for you and mum to bond http://www.lavitaspas.com.

➢ Buy her a book from her favorite author

➢ Buy her some imported chocolates
