Mother' Day is little over a week away.For some the idea of buying lavish gifts and taking your mother out for an expensive meal is the epitome of how the holiday has become commercialized in recent years. Forty years ago, said Marie al-Hachem, herself now a grandmother, Mother's Day was a simple celebration where kids would bring their mothers flowers and write them beautiful poems.Nadine, a trainee lawyer in Beirut, sees Mother's Day similarly. Her usual plans are a gift and dinner, this year probably at a seafood restaurant. These days, mothers are more likely to be wined and dined on Mother's Day – and the rise of deals and offers from restaurants tailored to the celebration reflects that.In the end, it seems, whether Mother's Day means some simple flowers or a lavish three-course meal out on the town, being the center of attention for the day and being shown how much they are loved is what makes a mother's day.KEEPING IT OLD SCHOOL: MOTHER'S DAY PLANS Bring along the kids and have a day out that is bound to give you some gift ideas for Mother's Day.Mother's Day brunch at Le Grey for $60 per head, with all mothers entered into a draw to win the Queen of the Day package at PureGrey Spa.
