It’s Mom’s Month [Newsletter]

Welcome to another beautiful month rubies! 5 months into 2023, can you believe it? We for sure can’t.

If you are new here, hello beautiful and welcome to the rubybox family. We are so happy to have you part of our community of strong women who help each other rise up every day! ♥︎

This month is a very special month indeed. We have loads of exciting competitions coming, test & review campaigns launching very soon and, best of all, we celebrate our mothers, the incredible, beautiful and strong women that gave us life.

Mother’s Day is a special day to honour and appreciate the most important woman in our lives, our mother. This year, instead of the usual flowers and chocolates, why not spend some quality time with your mom and create some memorable moments together?

Here are some fun things you can do with your mom on Mother’s Day:

  1. Brunch: Start off the day with a delicious brunch. Take your mom to her favourite restaurant or cook her favourite meal at home. Spend time chatting over a cup of coffee or a mimosa.
  2. Spa Day: Pamper your mom with a relaxing spa day. Book a massage, facial, or mani-pedi for both of you. You can also create a spa day at home by setting up a foot bath, face mask, and massage oils.
  3. Outdoor Activities: If your mom enjoys the great outdoors, plan a fun outdoor activity. You can go for a hike, bike ride, or have a picnic at a local park. This is a great way to spend time together while enjoying nature.
  4. Cooking Class: Take a cooking class together and learn how to make a new dish. You can find classes online or at a local cooking school. Not only is it fun, but you also get to take home a delicious meal.
  5. Movie Night: Choose a movie that both you and your mom would enjoy and have a movie night at home. Make some popcorn, grab some snacks, and cuddle up on the couch for a cozy evening.
  6. Art Class: If your mom is creative, consider taking an art class together. You can paint, draw, or create pottery. This is a great way to bond and express your creativity together.
  7. Volunteer: Give back to the community by volunteering together. You can volunteer at a local animal shelter, food bank, or community garden. It’s a great way to make a difference and spend time together.
  8. Road Trip: Take a road trip with your mom and explore a new city or town. You can plan ahead or be spontaneous and see where the road takes you.
  9. Game Night: Have a fun game night with your mom. Choose games that you both enjoy and have a friendly competition.
  10. Dance Party: Turn up the music and have a dance party with your mom. You can dance to your favorite songs or learn a new dance together.
Mother’s Day is an opportunity to show your mom how much you love and appreciate her. Spending time together and creating memories is the best gift you can give. Choose one of these fun activities or come up with your own and make this Mother’s Day a day to remember.

    Lovely article. I made a booking for a lunch buffet with my mother at the hotel in our town. She means everything to me and is helping me raise my children after my husband passed away. She is my rock.

    These are great ideas for pampering our mommies 👩. I am definitely taking my mom in law for a spa day treat. Booked a full body massage and manis for the both of us. After that session I’m taking her for lunch, i will hand over her gift to make it extra special.

    This woman has been there for me through thick & thin. My mother passed away 10 years ago, since then she has been extra supportive of me.

    She shows me love in a more different and extravagant way. She helps me raise my kids with no complaints whatsoever. She gave birth to the most amazing man I have ever met in my whole life ❤️😃😊.

    She is kind, humble, loving and super talkative 😆🤣a breath of fresh air, the best advicer, the best mother to us and everyone around her (family/neighbors). I love her so much❤️ and want to thank her for loving us selflessly 🌟⭐️
