  1. Always know’s how to make me feel better , even though im married my mom will call me and say im outside your place with my fav dish.. She always has a smile on her beautiful face noooo matter how hard times are. Has taught me , if GOD brought u to it , he will bring you thew. I wish i could repay my mom for all she;’s done and the unending things she does , but i try everyday to let her knw how much she is loved an appreciate all she does… Mom’s are GOD’s reminder that someone will always love u.

    • I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole dish in amethyst. My favourite colour, my favourite range, and to spoil me.

  2. My wife is also a mother, and I’d really like to win the Annie Sloan paint for her. She does a bit of furniture restoration, and is always saying how keen she is to try this out.

  3. The signature casserole dish in amethyst. My mom always puts others first, yet still finds time for herself. What an example of a person!

  4. I am a single mother of two boys ,6 and 8 and I would like to win Le Creuset casserole dish, I love to cook for my boys. Winning this would really help me cook up the storm in my mini kitchen for my boys. It gives me pleasure to see my boys happy, nothing would make me feel spoilt rotten than winning a casserole dish to cook for my boys because I feel complete when they are happy.

  5. I am a mother of three young and energetic boys and a husband who loves good food! I think I definitely deserve to be spoilt rotten on mothers day as I have put my entire life on hold for my family, and dedicated all my time and energy to raising three youngsters and caring for our family! A sacrifice and also a blessing to be able to do! I would so love this beautiful Le Creuset casserole dish to be able to cook a most amazing dish for my family! xx

  6. As a mother of 2 fabulous sons and 3 (almost 4 grandchildren) I would be delighted to win something for the first time in my lufe

  7. My mum has always put her 4 kids first, but now we’re all grown up and moved away from home she’s finally got time to put herself first. Something she really deserves! I know she’d love the Dr Haushka hamper for extra pampering or the Annie Sloan voucher to add some beauty to fun and colour into her new home.

  8. 2 help her cook up a storm with the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, my mom is the most generous and kind hearted soul I know. She always puts everyone first no matter who it might be. She dedicates all her time to a non profit organisation that helps jobless mothers to make an income to support their children. This would be an awesome mothers day gift for my mom.

  9. Le Creuset Casserole dish would be my favourite gift for my mom…she is the most giving, kind, thoughtful person I know. She does so much for me, my sisters, her 6 grandchildren and all her family and friends. I want her to know how much I love her and appreciate her for all she does. Always just a call away and never says no when needed, I hope I can be the mother to my two kids she has always been to me! xx

  10. I would love to win the Breville blender for my mom. She has worked tirelessly to put me through school sacrificing pleasures of life so I could complete my qualification. She has recently been told by the doctor she has gall stones and she’s been trying to manage her health better. This blender would be a great help in doing so as she takes natural medicine, supplements for her health. I would love to take care of her like she did for me. She truly is the greatest.

  11. My mum would love the anti aging Nivea Hamper. She looks great for her age and prides herself on it, she would simply love this hamper.

  12. MY PICK FOR MY MOM: 1. Upgrade her kitchen tech: ONE control grip stick blender from Breville, valued at R1,399. My mom, as old as she might be, is still the best thing ever to happen to me. She has stood by me when the world and everybody was taking long machetes to me. She supported me from childhood to now (post 50). Remember, she brought me to mother earth, weaned me, nurtured me, did all a mother could do to ensure I prosper. She deserves EVERYTHING good!

  13. MY MOM???? IS THE best and I’m sure everyone feels the same about their mom, but really mine is super duper extra special. Just to give you a very small example, I moved to CT 3 years ago and every now and then I’ll get a little surprise in the post! Who doesn’t love surprises?? Its usually socks for winter or stockings or a pendant or some cooking stuff. The best part? There is always a little hand written note. LOVE it, LOVE her and MISS her tons. Ohhhh, and I think the new LC Amethyst would be a stunning little thank you from me to her. <3

  14. control grip stick blender from Breville.
    I would like to win something for myself, I am a mom of 2 sons and always spoil them, now it is my turn.

  15. Would love to win the Le Creuset hamper for my mom.
    She gave me the most amazing advice: always appreciate the things you have and never complain or speak bad things about petty things. Appreciation make your world a positive one.

  16. Being a mother/housewife myself I’d love the Le Creuset casserole dish for those one pot dinners to save time and allow me to get on with other things.

  17. I am blessed with only one child and even though I would love more, I am thankful that I have one and she is an angel! I am a full time mother and she stays with me 24hours a day, literally, we have no family or friends near us and hubby works extremely long hours so yes I really would love to be pampered, I love to paint old furniture so I would just love the Annie sloan paint voucher, I love their stuff from the paint to the wax to the brushes! It is So Awesome and so inspiring! I have some pieces at home that could really do with a lick of some Annie Sloan to make it look fabulous again!

  18. I would love to win the casserole dish from Le creuset as i pride myself on being a good cook but without this sort after casserole dish to complete my works of wonder!

  19. My mom, Mary-Ann is the sweetest lady and she is always giving away so much of her time and love to others be it with sweet treats, home made chilly jam (THE best by the way) and she gives with an open heart. What a treat it would be if I could present her with a stunning new cookware to make all her goodies in!

  20. Amethyst is my Moms all time favourite colour – her wardrobe, her shoes, her handbags, her jewellery – are all this colour.
    It would be absolutely awesome to give her the new Amethyst Le Creuset pot – she will flip her lid with excitement.
    She loves cooking – soups, stews, casseroles – it would be the most incredible gift to give her!

  21. My mom enjoys cooking and there is always a home cooked meal ready at the end of each day. She has raised us herself over the past few years and although we do spoil her now and then I know she will appreciate the Cellular Anti-Age hamper, something for herself and not for the house 😉

  22. I would like to win the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset. It was definately not an easy road in becoming a mother but being a mother and a good mother at that is so easy. I love waking up in the morning hearing my 2 year old saying “morning mamma”. I love being the most important in his life and seeing him grow up makes me want to become an even better mother and person. I can only thank my own mother for being my inspiration.

  23. The Nivea Anti age hampers would be fabulous for Mom as she loves to garden and is so nuturing not only to her flowers but her children! Her skin could use some good product to moisturise and protect her being exposed to the elements.

  24. Would love to win the control grip stick blender from Breville for myself, for I love to cook and care for me family and see that everyone is happy and healthy, That will make my life so much easier in the kitchen..Please spoilt me this Mother’s Day.xxxxx

  25. Love to have the signature dish from Le Creuset pot.
    Every mom is special,she deserves the best.
    My mum is a good cook ,she is my teacher ,nurse ,cook ,my doctor ,but most of all my best friend.she deserves the best.

  26. My mom IS the best! Always a home cooked meal waiting for all of us at the end of the day, all our clothes washed and ironed and put away, lovely packed lunches with little chocolates as snacks, pancakes in this cold weather, loves and hugs and always there for us, always for us and having our friends over to stay and eat as well, just a beautiful caring mom….she would love the Amethyst LeCreuset or Dr Hauschka 😍😍😍

  27. Would love the the casserole or nivea for my mum who never accepts spoiling of any kind but ever willing to spoil!

  28. I would love the nivea hamper! In need of face products & can’t afford to break the bank this month

  29. I’m a mum & would love to spoil my mum too & the lecrueset would be a choice for us both. If lucky enough to be chosen we’d share the pot for special occasions 😉 @rln6

  30. I would like to win the nivea hamper or the blender stick for my mom. She is very hardworking and looks after her grandchildren now after spending almost 3 decades looking after her children. She has her own home industry business and I know the blender will make her job easy

    If I could win a prize it would be the Dr Hauska hamper cos I really need something to relax n De stress myself.. Working long hours as a single parent n still trying to guide a young mind is challenging.. Sometimes u just need to remember urself too

  31. I am a mom and taking the liberty of entering for myself. I would love the Le Crueset casserole. A bit of Breville would help as well 🙂

  32. Being a teenager when my mum fell pregnant with me at the tender age of 19. Without much of a secondary education , she was not able to earn a salary to support her child .

She will spend her evenings, sewing clothes for my brother and I . This brave , courageous and independent woman has single handily grew up two children .

  38. I Would love to win the ONE control grip stick blender from Breville. WHY MY MUM IS THE WORLD’S GREATEST? greatest My mom is not the typical mom who would wake up very early in the morning to prepare breakfast for us. Nor is she the type who will cook merienda for us while we were still in school, so that by the time we get home, there would be a hot cup of chocolate and pancakes waiting for our much-deserved snacks. No. Mama is more than that. She is the working-mom-kind-of-mother who works 8 hours a day, then comes home and faces the household chores. I admire her for what she knows and for being so cool about it. Ask her any question and she is always beaming with the right answer. She often challenges my values, my convictions – making sure that I keep the right values close to my heart always, and get rid of the things that destroy both the body, mind and spirit. The wisdom that my mom shares with me is simply priceless. Life is a pool of Learnings gathered from past experiences, but without a mother guiding you as you go through life, my paths would have been different. Learning never stops when I am with mom. She is the best, if not the bestest. My mum reminds me that the happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.” She is God’s gift to me. From her, I learned everything that I needed to survive in this challenging world. She taught me the real meaning of love (outside of emotions and beyond words) forgiveness, patience and grace. She is a mother who takes care of all our needs. Besides being our mum, she’s also our storyteller, peacemaker, doctor, counsellor, fashion critic, financial adviser & best friend. ““Her heart is forever young – she enjoys dancing, laughing, and striking poses while taking photos. Mum’s love is special; she scolds to discipline, she nags with good intentions but deep down, she is all love.” I can only thank God for my mom because without her, I would not have been brought out into this world and enjoy the life I now enjoy. Mom has always been been the most amazing role model to me; she has never steered me in the wrong direction, she allowed me to make my own mistakes without so much as “I told you so.”. She is my mom, my mentor, my strength, my number one fan and, most of all, my best friend. She has always been a constant force in an ever-changing life. No matter what hardships she has faced in her own life, she always found the means to ensure my needs were met. To this day I cannot begin to imagine how she did it. Despite all her heartaches, worries and troubles, she never lost her kind nature, she never surrendered her tenderness or sacrificed her values. When my heart aches, she know exactly what to say to pick me up and bring me back to myself. Whenever I have felt like the World is caving in, and that I am falling apart, it is her strength and Love that have kept me going. I will always cherish the morning teatimes we spend together; the time we are able to relax, chat & catch up on all the happenings in our lives. I know that through her love, wisdom and friendship she has given me the ability to love unconditionally, to cherish every living creature and to treat them with the utmost respect and kindness. If I am able to grow to be half the woman that I see in her, I will consider my life a success. Mum’s Selflessness, ongoing Love and dedication to her family & sacrifices she has made for us over the years, makes her UNIQUE, SPECIAL and the best MOM Ever.

  40. I’d love to win the Le Creuset signature casserole dish for my mom as she’s always slaying in the kitchen 24/7 if not for her family then it would be for neighbors or relatives,she would be delighted with this gift so she could cook up a storm in style for her upcoming birthday+mothers day 🙂

  41. I am a mother to three boys and a wife to one, which means I am constantly running around….it is my time to get spoilt ,-) The Breville or Le Creuset prize would make a wonderful spoil ,-)

  43. #win. #mothersday My Mom makes food,cakes&puddings in a jiffy & sooo tasty.I’m still at school and stole a tweet because she got a response on Twitter I wish I could buy her everything.Liam

  44. I would love to win a “Upgrade her kitchen tech” for my mom because our current liquidize is giving us endless problems & I think its time for an upgrade. My mom is the greatest because as old as we are she still sacrifices everything just to make sure that we are taken care of & that we are happy. It doesn’t matter how tired or unwell she is or how much we tell her not to worry about us, she on her own always has to make sure that we are okay!!

  45. I have an amazing mom who always goes out of her way to look after those around her, she always puts herself last,and will gladly go without, knowing that we have. I dont get to see my parents often enough, but know that my mom deserves to be pampered!! Would love to send her the Nivea hamper so that she can take a bit of me time and enjoy the spoils! She would be so touched!! She really does have such a big heart and this would make her day!!

  46. I’d love to spoil my mother with the Nuxe oils to soothe her beautiful skin which she has been blessed with. My mom is a natural beauty who does not spend time or money on herself yet exudes grace and gentleness with a timeless beauty both inside and out. I’m very proud of her and love her dearly.

  47. Cooking is not my mom’s forte. Baking, yes. But not cooking. And since her birthday is on 11 May, she’s always lost out on two separate gifts as it falls within a few days of Mother’s Day.
    I’d love to win the Le Creuset Casserole dish to cook her a delicious roast lunch in honor of all the things she’s done for me. After which I’ll present her with the gorgeous Le Creuset dish – which she’ll probably prefer me to have as she doesn’t like cooking much in the first place.

  48. I’m a mother of 3 and I am very proud of my kids, but the old adage is true; a mothers work is never done. They are all out of the house but still call for advice on recipes, home fixes, problems of the heart and still love my baking and cooking when they visit for special occasions. I would choose the Breville mixer so I can whip up all their favourites in a heart beat when they make the trip home back to their mom and home made cooking and treats.

  49. I am mum to a two year old little girl. I would love to win the amethyst casserole dish not only because i love all things purple and lecreuset but cooking is what i enjoy the most and getting a gift from somewhere may remind my dear husband and daughter of mother’s day as well 🙂

  50. Would love Le Creuset for myself & my mom. Foods just tates better when u make it in a Le Creuset dish!

    And when you give your family food in such a functional & beautiful dish everyone will just love it!!

  51. My Mother, a rock of the family, style icon, I always find no words to discribe her beauty and her love towards us her children. that is why it is always excitement when i’m thinking about. The Sun, the sorrows and hardship got her but never left her with no beauty and weakness. the Nivea she was using has gone to become something that i would always like to remind those days when she was younger and show her it has improved to something to this day. The Le Creuset Casserol dish for all the food she would want to cook for us while we visit her and the society would me a lot to her. she is indeed a mother to us and to other people.

  52. I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole, to cook the meals my mom was remembered for. She was killed when i was 22 years old, and my children never got to know their grandmother ! she is sorely missed.

  53. I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole, to remember my mom who used to cook timeless meals.

  54. I would definitely love to win the Le Creuset prize. I am already day dreaming about the dishes I will cook in it. If I should win, the prize would have to be mine as my mom does not like cooking all that much, but she likes eating my dishes. Even though my mom is not the best cook, she is amazing at so many other things. Years ago she knitted jerseys. She sews just about anything. She loves arts and crafts. She spends time in the garden. She teaches others to do crafts. She even does paintings. And oh yes, when I need to go out, she even acts as my free babysitter. My mom is the best!!!!

  55. I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole dish. Geewiz, how do I begin to pat myself on my back? Well all I can say is that take great pleasure in working hard for my children. I do what I do everyday so that they know and feel safe, protected and loved. I try my best to give them all they need and to keep them healthy, strong and confident in themselves. Its not easy to be the breadwinner in a family of 5, but despite all of its challenges, I keep on doing it over and over again just to see my children happy.

  56. My mom has earned the Le Creuset casserole pot (2) a million times over. I’m 21 this year, and despite not being able to afford Le Creuset for her own kitchen, my mom made sure that I got a Le Creuset pot for my birthday – a true life long gift. My mom would love a pot like that and it would have made cooking for the two of us when I was growing up so much better. My dad died when I was 12 and my mom has rocked at being a single mom ever since despite missing my dad terribly. 9 years have passed and she is still as strong as ever. Kind of the long lasting you get from Le Creuset. She deserves that pot.

  57. I think the regenerating feel good ritual hamper would be the best prize for the best mom in the world, having raised 4 kids on her own!

  58. Would LOVE to own my own piece of the Le Creuset range, which hold wonderful promises of home cooked meals together as a happy family.

  59. I would like to win a signature casserole dish in amethyst for my Mom this Mothers day. She would love to add this to her kitchen and she definitely deserves it. She is always there for everyone in the family and makes sure they are happy first. Everyone deserves a treat and she would love this…

  60. Definitely the blender, my mother is one very special mum who is going through stages of the horrible C and she has undergone so many changes in her life, and one is her diet and the fact that she has to drink a lot of veg smoothies, and fruit smoothies, this blender would work wonders for her and she would definitely benefit from having this……

  61. My mom is the most amazing person I know. She is a single mother and works so hard every sing day but still finds the time to spend time with my brother and I. One of her biggest passions is cooking and I know she would love the Le Creuset casserole dish. She also deserves some pampering and TLC for all the hard work she does for my little brother and I.

  62. I would love to win the ONE control grip stick blender from Breville for my mom. Her kitchen tools are pretty outdated, and she loves baking so this would
    Be an awesome mothers day gift. She never spoils herself.

  63. I’d LOOOVE to win the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset. My mom is so great because she is willing to sacrifice everything for me. She once drove all the way from PE to Grahamstown and back (1.5hrs each way) to fetch my squash racket so I wouldn’t be stressed before my tournament. Love you ma!

  64. My mother’s favourite treat is buying herself some Nivea creams. She deserves the Nivea hamper as she does so much for others and so little for herself

  65. I have the most incredible mom who is everything to me and the best Gran my kids could wish for xxx she is all natural and has taught me so much about raising my children naturally from the food they eat to homeopathic alternatives when they ill xxx i would just love to spoil her with a Dr Hauschka gift xx Thank you so much for your wonderful and inspiring magazine xxx have a beautiful day

  66. Following ELLE Decoration on Twitter @ELLE_Deco username:@thokozile8080

    would love the ONE signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, valued at R3,300.

    I would love to win for my mother, simply because ,to this day she loves and supports me through everything ,she has taught me so many things in life but I truly
    Thank her for teaching me how I should be free spirited and go for what I want in life ,she would say to me do not be afraid to fail because that means you are trying ,
    By trying it means you want to succeed ,even when I graduated from college she said to me ,remember how hard it was paying your textbooks and tuition fees ,and
    Studying up all night for exams ,and I said yes ,and I then understood it wasn’t about the destination but it was the journey that made me appreciate what I had accomplished it wasn’t easy
    But we made it happen, we didn’t have much but we loved each other ,we supported one another ,I always say I would never understand her pain as a single mother raising 4 children by her self

  70. I know my mom wants a new handstick blender, so the Breville prize would be great for her. My mom is the best. She is my short version in the mirror, the person I can rely on most.

My mom is the person I can ask for the moon and she’ll give me the universe.

    P.S. Amethyst is also my birthstone so it’s meant to be!

    Thanks and hope all the mothers get spoiled rotten.

  89. I would love to win my mom the Le Creuset Signature Casserole dish in Amethyst. My mom is the most self sacrificing mom she will do anything for anyone no matter the cost to herself.

    We have had so many challenges and illness in our family this year and now we wait to hear if mom will need to have a hip operation.

    Last year in December at our family Christmas party mom had a similar dish in her hand which she wanted so badly, we do the swopping and bartering party for adults where the adults each buy one pressie and then you can choose another persons pressie if it’s your turn and take away the original persons gift. It is fun and lots of laughter, but mom’s face dropped when she lost her casserole dish and nothing would give me more pleasure than to see that smile on her face again … she really deserves it!

  90. I would love to win for my mom number 2, to thank her for all the delicious meals she has cooked for me since I was a child. Her cooking skills keep increasing to new levels, and she would love to receive the beautiful signature Le Creuset Casserole dish in her fav colour for Mothers Day. Making new memories in the kitchen with this would surely make her pleased with my gift. #MomTheChef

  91. My Mom was the best cook and cooking was one of her fave things to do! Would be an awesome prize and bring back such cool memories.

  92. I would love my Mom to win the control grip stick blender from Breville. She is one in a million and always there for all of us whether it be her kids, grandkids, kids in law. Her happiest moments are in the kitchen preparing all kinds of exotic new recipes just for us. I love her lots.

  93. Would love to win Dr HAUSCKA HAMPER my mother is the oil that keeps the machine going

  94. 6. Annie Sloan gift voucher.

    My mom is the world’s best, because through her tough upbringing she has proven not to be a victim of her circumstances and has taught my sister and I how to be successful and independent women.

  95. I am my mother’s child and we both are always looking for do-it-yourself projects to tackle. This is why the Annie Sloan paint would be the perfect present, as we can find our next project to work on and spend time together!

    My mom is a supermom, because she had me when she was 40. Despite being told that I would be a Down Syndrome baby, and told that she has to terminate her pregnancy by doctors, she didn’t. My mom is a supermom because she has overcome breast cancer and fought hard to beat this. I am proud of my mommy and ever so grateful that she has been healed. I cannot imagine my life without her.It’s also quite scary how much I am exactly like my mother, but instead of shying away from it, I embrace it.

    I am my mother’s child.

  96. I’m a mom of very busy twin toddlers (aren’t they all?!) and wife of a serious foodie. The only time my meals actually turn out tasty is when I cook in my mom’s trusty ol’ Le Creuset. Alas, it’s nowhere near me in times of need (every night) and thus, for the sake of all involved, I NEED to win that purple beaut of culinary coolness!

  97. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – my mum had an old coffee table that she and my dad bought on there honeymoon – I would love to paint that for her to bring it up to date.

  98. I’d love to win the Le Creuset dish for my mum. She’s had all her pots and pans since she was married and it’d be lovely to see something new on her stove!

  99. I would love to win ONE signature casserole dish in amethyst by Le Creuset for my mum. She deserves this because no matter what she goes through she comes out stronger no matter how bad things turn up in her life she’s got away to pick herself up again and get through it. She brings comfort when there’s sadness, she brings joy where you feel there’s no hope. She’s always there one step away and even moved into my complex to be closer to to me and be there for me. She sacrifices everything for her children and expects nothing in exchange for the loves that she gives. She’s eternal, a angel a gift from God.

  100. I’m just going to be honest; my mother is the most most generous, wonderful women. Her favourite gift to give is small pieces of Le Creuset. She doesn’t spoil herself or get spoilt nearly as much as she does.

    She is a mastermind in the kitchen. Having this beautiful amethyst casserole dish means her meals will always look their best when served, beautiful! The photos will be amazing and I will photograph and post many pretty & mouth watering moments we will share together!

  101. Le Creuset <3
    I could do with some spoilage because sometimes the only me-time you can get with a toddler is brushing your teeth, in the morning.

  102. My daughter is the best mom and friend my grandchildren could have asked for. I would love to win the Le Creuset Casserole for her as a Mother’s Day gift. She’s is gorgeous, caring and the most kind and unselfish person I have ever gotten the pleasure to know. And ofcourse then Granny can also indulge in her lovely cooking over a Sunday family lunch xx

  103. hi, my girls lost their dad when they were young and the responsibility of bringing up my two gems fell on my shoulders. I have just turned 50, which to me, was a milestone! I would love to win the cellular anti aging hamper from Nivea…’cause I need it. I would love to look pretty and as both my gems are now almost independent I would love some ME time. Ana x

  104. My mom eventually retired a few months ago. She has worked from the age of 14 years old ( an immigrant in South Africa) to just short of 70 years old. Her delicious soups are always being requested by everyone in the family and friends. I would love to treat my precious mom whom has always worked so hard for me and my girls, always had a word of good advise, always said a prayer for us daily….with a Breville blender.

  105. Le Creuset – my mom would die for this pot…amazing woman throughout her whole life in every way and now at 87 still incredible and going strong ❤️❤️❤️

  106. Breville – my mom’s stick blender stopped working and she still loves baking and cooking – she makes sago pudding for my hub, chocolate brownies for my sons and Breyani for all of us once in a while – I think that really says something awesome about an 87 year old still willing and able to do these deeds for us out of love❤️❤️❤️

  107. i would love Le Creuset for my mom. She cooks nearly every day for us and makes delicious meals and puddings. She works hard and is always loving and kind to us children and our friends. We r so blessed to have her as our mother.

  108. My mother is so strong, and selfless, and constantly caring for other people, I would like to win the regenerating feel good ritual hamper from Dr Hauschka, valued at R1,041 for her, so she can take a moment to pamper her self and enjoy the love we have for her.

  109. I would love #1 for my mom to upgrade her kitchen tech. My mum is older, so she’s starting to struggle a bit in the kitchen so this would help her with food prep and she loves to blend fruit for smoothies in the mornings.

  110. The control grip stick blender from Breville!

    My mom is the most selfless person I’ve ever known. She has made she us kids got to have a good education, healthy food and a stable and safe environment to grow up in. Most of all she has given us unconditional love even with our flaws and past blunders.

  111. The Le Creuset signature dish. My mum is not big on cooking but I know that once she has really great quality equipment she’ll cook all our favourite meals. It’s also her favourite colour – a double win! 🙂

  112. my mum is the greatest mom around, she is beautiful from the inside out. loves without reason, shows compassion and kindness. she lets me live my dream and is a huge inspiration for me. she gives from the heart and appreciates life and everyone around her. she has taught me morals and values about life, my culture and heritage. she outshines all the woman i know and is a blessing in my life. she has taught me to appreciate humans, nature and all animals. she will always be my number one and i will always hold her as close to my heart as i can.

    i will love to win the lecreuset signature caserole.

  113. Le Creuset casserole dish for those one pot dinners to save time and allow my mom to spend more quality time just on herself after a long day at work.

  114. I would love to win the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, my little boy is 2 and i love cooking for him as he is such a good eater and loves trying new flavors and textures.

  115. Hi. I would love to win the Le Creuset for my daughter. She is an amazing mother. Recently her home was broken into and all her kitchen pots/pans etc were stolen. She is a single mum to two beautiful girls. She is in a difficult space and it is difficult for her to replace everything. My daughter makes me so proud because she is an amazing mother. Making major sacrifices for her girls. She always puts their needs before her own. I am a mum to but have had life a little easier, my daughter faced many hardships and my heart breaks to see how she neglects herself to make life worth it for her kids. I try to help on a pensioners pay but she refuses because as she says it’s her kids and her responsibility to give them a good life. I believe she deserves this amazing prize, she needs it too!

  116. I have read all the amazing stories on this platform about their moms and it proves what I thought. There is no one like mum. I would love to win the Breville blender for my mommy. Mommy is amazing. She is my inspiration. She has comforting arms and her lips have healing words. Mom is not just my mom but my best friend. I share with her my every joy and every tear. She laughs with me and heals my pain. She is not just a mum but a beat friend, a healer and the best cooks ever!

  117. Oh my word, I would LOVE the ONE signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, valued at R3,300. What an awesome dish for cooking lovely Winter stews.
    @JaxxLisa

  118. #MothersDayCompetition -My mom is simply sublime! She has taught me to love humanity and to always be kind. She knows what compassion is and does not hesitate to offer understanding. Mom is the epitome of being brave, having had to care take 3 girls on her own. Whenever there are tough times in life, my mom continues in the direction of her dreams with a smile on her face. I could not be prouder. And I Love her dearly. I think my mom is so wonderful and deserves the best that life has to offer…..

    • Hi Nix – in order to enter our competition, we need to know which prize you’d best like to win for your darling mum, so please do leave another comment to enter, with your selection from the above. Good luck!

  120. I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole dish set it will be a nice birthday gift since its my birthday on the 12th May

  121. I would love to spoil myself with the breville or le creuset. As a hardworking mom of 2 kids, I am a part time student and have a part time job, so my life is a real struggle to enjoy the finer things in life. But cooking is my passion and I would luv luv to cook something fancy in a le creuset and spoil myself for a change

  122. The Best Mom in the World deserves the Best Cookware in the World!

    – Signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset,

  123. My mom could so do with the control grip stick blender from Breville. She is a smoothie junkie and our blender gave up on her last week . They just too pricey for me to buy her as a mothers day gift.

    She is my friend, my hero, my foe, who loves me regardless of how much it gets old, who helped me even though I didn’t want it, she is THE one & ONLY Mom!!!

  124. i am a mom no matter what a mother still loves cooking for her family and what will make a more fantastic mothers gift than the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset. i would love to win the signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset. to make warm delicious dinners for my family every other day except mothers day lol , they have to spoil me …

  125. I would love to win the Le Creuset casserole dish please and thank you for such an awesome competition. My mother is not around anymore, may her dear soul RIP and not having her for the past 14 years has being extremely challenging. i was 23 and my sisters 18 and 8. it was a pleasure raising my sisters and being there for them with their 21st, matric farewells and their first heartbreak. Today they are independent, strong ladies who are doing extremely well for themselves. i am now a mom of a 5 year old gorgeous son and i am truly blessed to have this busy body in my life. Would’ve loved to have his granny around, but i know she’s with us in spirit. Having to raise my son without mom’s advice or assistance has being difficult, but i’m coping and doing what a mom needs to do……love her child unconditionally and raise him to be a true gentleman. My mom’s passion and commitment to helping others has always inspired me and kept the rest of our family grounded in what’s really important in life. She was the embodiment of resilience and as i start to build my own life, i am incredibly confident knowing she is and always will be part of me. Happy Mother’s day ladies. You are loved and appreciated

  126. ONE control grip stick blender from Breville
    My mom is more than a pillar, she is like a favourite pillow or cuddly toy – you know where to turn to for some warmth, comfort and reassurance.

    A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.

    The key is also to celebrate and honour your mother whilst you still can, therefore I would looove to take advantage of this opportunity to enter this competition to show her what she means to me.

    I used to say that I was the apple and my mom was the tree, and I certainly didn’t fall very far. But that’s not entirely accurate. If my mom is the tree, then I’m the bird that grew up in its branches.

    She protected me and showed me that, even on the highest of branches, there was nothing to be afraid of. She encouraged me to explore and gave me a solid foundation to come home to. I didn’t fall from her. I flew because of her.

    She’s always pushes me and never pulled me down…She always wants to help in things I do or want to do…This would be perfect just to show her my gratitude for all she’s done for me!

    Whilst most of us could never really thank our moms entirely for everything they have done for us, in only one gift a year.
    This competition would be but a small token of thanks for the endless beauty she has represented in my life, a small yet thoughtful gesture, for the tears, her joys, her pains, the many times she has been there when our lives fell apart at the seams, the way she helped us pick the pieces, without asking for anything in return. The eternal love, no matter what we have done.
    Moms are the compass for our families; they provide the nurturing and comfort that will keep you strong for the rest of your life, and echo into your children’s lives, and their children.

  127. I deserve to be spoilt because I have always tried to guide my sons and never force opinions but left them to make their own way in life. Now I am reaping the benefits and enjoying the rewards of being a to three well-adjusted and beautiful grandchildren.

  128. I would love to win ONE signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, valued at R3,300.
    My Mom Nikki Katz taught me to always be kind to people because everyone is fighting their own battles. My mother taught me to appreciate a job well done! “If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.” She taught me that it is ok to march to a beat of a different drum. My mother taught me humour. “When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don’t come running to me.”She taught me to stay positive, even when everything seems to be going wrong, I always hope for the best. It’s tough to do that sometimes, but I find a way because I know that’s what my mother would want me to do. To always respect and care for your elders. She taught me to have values and respect myself. MOTHER (moth.er) muther ~ a verb : to love, nourish, protect, teach, comfort, guide, nurture, support, embrace, cherish, reassure. All the things my gorgeous MOM does. My mom is my best friend, my rock, my everything. I would take a bullet for her. She is always there for me, a shoulder to cry on, a person to laugh with and share my most intimate thoughts. I could not have asked for a better mom. A truly inspiring lady whom I adore as well as the best granny to my two beautiful girls. I don’t know where she finds the energy to be the person she is. She can cook like a dream and I always get me bags, i love her to the moon and back. She is the most selfless person and is soo generous without ever asking for anything in return. The beggars by her house always wave at her when she drives past as she gives them bread etc nearly every day. I really don’t know where I would be today if i didn’t have my beautiful mom. I LOVE HER and the best part is she loves me unconditionally.

  129. I would be so thrilled to win the Le Creuset casserole dish. What a “voluptuous” and sexy colour it is! It will bring life to my rather drab, old-fashioned kitchen. I live in Gauteng and all three my children live in the Cape. This would be a “To Mom, From Mom” gift to make up for their absence on Sunday 10 May. I also miss my own, dear, late mother and would even give up such a great gift to have her here for just one more Mother’s Day…

  130. In my eyes shes always been the best Chef, and sh proves this over and over again, every-time I go visit, and I know this Sunday will not be any different. She would more than appreciate the Le Creuset casserole dish.

  131. My Granny deserves the pamper me pretty hamper she’s 69yrs old & a strong woman, had to endure many hardships in life and takes good care of my grandfather that recently had a stroke! She needs to be spoilt as always caring for others

  132. I’m a mum & I would so love the upgrade her kitchen blender set! I’m always taking care of others that I don’t make time for myself I need a bit of spoiling!

  133. Would love to win the Pamper her pretty hamper for my mom. My mom is always there for everyone,listening and willing to help. She always put her needs last. She is a single mom and raised four kids on her own. The nivea product would be perfect for her so she can pamper herself . She deserves it.

  134. for my mom, I know my mom would love the Nuxe dry oils as she is forever commenting about her dry skin and loves good quality beauty products. As she has she has grown older she has appreciated good skin products more and more and now at the age of 61 she can pull off being in her early 50s. I would really love to spoil my mom this mothers day with these oils as I would like her to look and feel 10 years younger for the rest of her life. I also think this gift could symbolize thanks to her as she had me at the age of 46 and I think it was very special. I think she really deserves this and I would like to show her a small fraction of how much I love her this mothers day! xx

  135. I would love to give my mum the Les Creuset pot as she has just renovated her kitchen for the first time in 35 years and could do with some pot upgrades! My mother has always put her 5 children before herself and apart from this making her a saint, it also means that she needs some pampering!

  136. Help her cook up a storm:

    ONE signature casserole dish in amethyst from Le Creuset, valued at R3,300.

    This would be my greatest Mothers Day gift ever. Perfect to cook up a storm for the men on Fathers Day!

  137. My mum’s birthstone is the amethyst and she loves cooking – Amethyst Le Creuset – the perfect prize for her!
