Flowers ain’t gonna cut it. We spoke to three moms and here is what they wanted for the special day.
Sangeetha Gopal is a fitness trainer. “I have sixteen year old and a seven year old. Both are boys so I’m not expecting many flowers or gifts. Although boys have their own way of showing affection.” Last year her younger son bought her a Cornetto because he remembered she like it.
What would she like to do on the occasion? “I like luxury handbags and shoes, but I guess I’ll have to wait a few years before my kids can get me that!” On special occasions she loves to visit breweries like Toit and Vapour.
“I love breakfast in bed, it has been a while since I had it though” says Oindrila Dasgupta, an entrepreneur. “I have a new dress which I plan to wear.” She loves going out to cafes and restaurants. Some of her favourite places are M Cafe at the Bengaluru Marriott and Zen at the Leela Palace (“because I love Asian food”). She can’t resist a brunch with a good Long Island Iced Tea.
Rachna Sehgal has a fourteen year old girl who loves to pamper her mom. “Last year I woke up to a hamper of goodies and a spa day. She took me out for dinner as well.” She looking forward to this year’s mother’s day. Her fav restaurants to visit are Rim Naam, Olive and Sunny’s. For a night out she likes Bang at the Ritz Carlton
