Mother's Day in UAE is right around the corner which means it's time to show your mum just how much she means to you by treating her to something as sweet as she is. Nothing quite says "I love you" like a selection of delicious sweeties to put a big smile on her face. Whatever her favourites may be, Dubai is full of great sweet treats you can give her to make her day, from chocolates to Turkish delight and pastries to cakes. We've sought out the best sweet boxes in Dubai's restaurants and patisseries. Take your pick of what mum will love.
1. Gelato Macarons
When looking for the perfect sweet treat, the mighty macaron is more often than not the winner and the gelato macarons made over at Amorino are the perfect combination. Here you can get a 12 box of assorted gelato macarons which are certain to turn you into son or daughter of the year. Flavours range from Passion Fruit and Mango Sorbet to Caramel Gelato, Pistachio and Blackberry, Hazelnut and so many more. By getting the box of 12 you can let your mum experience all of their amazing flavours - and we can promise, she will not be left disappointed.
2. Orangettes Box
You can't go wrong with a good old box of chocolates, but it's time to take it up a notch with the Orangettes Box from La Cure Gourmande. This is a box of candied oranges which are covered with dark chocolate. They make a delicious treat for those with more sophisticated tastes. The combination of tangy sweet orange and rich dark chocolate is absolutely delightful and will be sure to become a new favourite. Just don't expect to get too much of it yourself, as mum will probably enjoy it so much you won't get a chance to try more than a bite or two!
3. Divan Chocolate-Covered Turkish Delight
Turkish Delight is a hugely popular sweet in Europe and you may remember it from C.S Lewis's The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It is a tasty light candy which is dusted with icing sugar and totally addictive once you start eating. What's better than Turkish Delight? Turkish Delight covered in chocolate, that's what! You can get a 150g box of chocolate-covered Turkish delight from the guys over at Divan Patisserie as the perfect gift this year. Choose from amazing flavours such as Almond, Mint, Rose and Lemon, Pistachio, Orange, Coffee and so many more. Combine them to make the ideal present that she won't be forgetting in a hurry.
4. Eclair Gift Boxes
When it comes to desserts, you can never go wrong with a fresh and tasty eclair and the ones served over at Eclair La Petite Duchesse are, in our opinion, the best in town. Choose a gift box of either 6 or 12 mini or regular sized eclairs, all of which are totally fresh and absolutely delicious. Select your flavours from the decadent Salted Caramel eclair, the exotic Passion Fruit eclair, the tangy Raspberry eclair and so many more - each one more delicious than the last! Each bite of these lovingly made eclairs will transport you to the streets of Paris, without the hefty price tag!
