Every year, on the last Sunday of May, the Dominican Republic celebrates a special member of each family; all our beautiful mothers! So we didn’t want to miss this opportunity to wish the very best for all the wonderful mothers in La Romana, Casa de Campo, Santo Domingo and around the world!
It is not a secret that we Dominicans love celebrating life and special occasions, which is why it would not be a surprise to find Dominican homes (especially those in which our grandparents live) packed with hundreds of members of the family spending some quality time together, chatting as well as enjoying food, drinks, music and even dancing!
If you are more of a going out type of family, you can treat her to a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch at Minitas Beach Club or dinner at the La Piazzetta restaurant up in Altos de Chavón, or if you can go beyond the Casa doors and enjoy a lovely lunch at Crema Restaurant or a night out at Cañaveral Food Park, they will be having a live band “Son Cubano”, a refreshing new signature drink at Zafra and many delicious food options at each of their food stations.
One other thing that Dominicans don’t miss out on is the purchase of many presents for all the lovely mothers of the family. Have no clue what to buy your mom for Mother’s Day? Finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be tricky, how can you tell her how much she means to you? Sure, you could craft a DIY Mother’s Day gift that she’ll be sure to love, but some of us just don’t have the ability or the spare time.
Show the wonderful moms in your life how much they mean to you with a day of pampering at the Spa, or if she’s into sports a round of golf or a tennis lesson here in Casa, you can buy her something at Boho Belles Bazar at Cañaveral or at Sweet Mother’s Day Bazaar at Body Stetic this Saturday, or beautiful flowers from Costa Farms Nursery, numerous accessories for their home from one of Chavón artisan workshops, or timeless jewelry – wonderful options can be found at Everett Designs in Altos de Chavón!
Whatever you decide to do, we hope every mother all over the world has a great weekend filled with love!
