5x How to celebrate Mother's Day in Eindhoven

Okay, you've probably marked it in your calendar ages ago (with our without some pressure from mom), but Sunday, May 12, is Mother's Day. And where better to celebrate the motherhood of your mom, stepmother, grandmother, friend, aunt, or neighbor than in Eindhoven? From breakfast in bed to a beautiful bouquet, we share five tips for the perfect Mother's Day!

Breakfast in bed (or not)

Ah, breakfast in bed, also known as the classic surprise. Of course, you can serve half-baked, DIY croissants that result in a crumb fest, or you can take a more professional approach. How? Just let mom leave crumbs someone else's bed by gifting her an overnight stay. For example, in one of these design hotels. Everything will be taken care of, down to the last detail. Breakfast in bed for two, please! Not a fan of making a mess in bed? Take your Mother's Day party to Meneer De Boer. There you can enjoy an all-day breakfast until 16:00. So you and mom can sleep in and enjoy a luxurious brunch. 

Have tea together

Things have to be a little more spectacular on a day like Mother's Day. It's a must. Not that a cup of tea at a lovely spot won't do, but a luxury high tea is just better! A full belly and good company; it’s the perfect recipe for a happy mom. You can taste some of our favorite high teas at Pinkie Patisserie, Viola's, Stadrestaurant Welp, and Berlage. Or try one of these spots for tea. Yummy goodness incoming!

Love in bloom

Did you even celebrate Mother’s Day properly if you didn't get her flowers? We'd have to say no. Fortunately, in Eindhoven, you have a range of florists who will pick a special bouquet for you. From peonies (they’re in season!) to a bouquet of wildflowers: OKTOBER in huis, Pasmans, and Bloemisterij Hartogs know how to make your love bloom.

Massages & more

As far as our knowledge of moms goes, your mother is probably always busy. Let's slow down! Because a stressed-out mother is no fun. You can, of course, take over part of her to-do list. But we think she might prefer a relaxing treatment. It could be a pedicure at Soap Treatment Store, a facial at award-winning city spa Agua, or a relaxation massage at QoQo. Up to you!

A gift for life

There is no such thing as the perfect gift because all moms are different. Well, for the most part, we agree with that, except that the jewelry from Minitials will appeal to almost everyone. They personalize each piece of jewelry with initials, a fingerprint, or special dates. Your mom will love a personal gift! 

Happy Mother’s Day!
