We are all guilty of having left making mother’s day plans and gift shopping to the last minute, sometimes because of a lack of time but mostly, we presume, because being human we forget about these things from time to time.
Commercial advertising on TV is what keeps most of us in the loop as to what important dates are coming up and mother’s day is no exception. Planning the day is all about the gift and the restaurant, that’s if you’re not eating in. If you have not made any plans for mother’s day then here are some restaurant Mother’s Day specials from around South Africa.
