Celebrating 45 Years Of The UAE
Get ready to party Mamas, as the UAE’s 45th National Day falls on Friday, 2 December (yippee for the long weekend!). Treat family and friends to these very patriotic gifts!
Every celebration deserves cake, right mamas? And we can’t think of a better way to indulge our sweet tooth than by ordering Sugarmoo’s red velvet cake with National Day-themed red, white, black and green frosting! The perfect centre piece for your National Day table, the cake is available to order now through the Sugarmoo website. We can’t wait to see the look on little faces when they spot it!
Available Sunday, 4 December, 2016. Order through website at www.sugarmoo.com or through their phone lines on 800–SUGAR (78427).
We love fresh flowers in the house – and around National Day, what could be better than a bouquet in the colours of the UAE? The company to order from is Maison de Fleurs, who can create bespoke bouquets from Infinity Roses, which last up to two years – so you’ll be enjoying the flowers not just this National Day, but for the next couple of years too. Well worth the investment, right Mamas?
From 820 AED, made to order. Call 04 276 5886 or visit www.maisondesfleurs.com
Dubailove.ae is dedicated to gifts that celebrate the UAE and it’s hard to pick a favourite – but if pushed, the silk screen printed Dubai T-Shirt gets our vote. Made of high quality cotton, it’s available in Black, White or Melange and comes presented in a gift box. It’s definitely one of the most stylish ways to celebrate National Day – but something that can be worn throughout the whole year to celebrate this fabulous nation of ours!
140 AED. Buy online at www.dubailove.ae
It’s time to celebrate the cities we live in – and if that happens to be Dubai or Abu Dhabi, we have the perfect gift suggestion! The beautiful skyline artwork by Mint Julip Designs at Little Majlis will look fabulous on any wall, with a choice of different sizes and colours (framed or unframed) to suit every budget. We don’t know about you mamas, but we’re already working out where this one is going to go on the wall – and if you don’t have space, you can always go for the design on a cushion instead!
