Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.—Stevie Wonder
Happy Mother’s Day to All Those Wonderful Mothers Out There!
One of the guaranteed nicest days of spring is coming soon – that day is Mother’s Day! As usual, we’re scratching our heads, wondering what to get Mom for her special day. While our gift budget may not be as big as in years past, this doesn’t mean you can’t give Mom a terrific gift she’ll absolutely love.
Here are some ideas on how to make that other woman in your life feel like a queen.
You can bring mom for brunch at one of the famous garden restaurants such as Trellises Garden Grille. Enjoy a relaxing morning amidst the flowers and the greens while you talk about your plans or just to catch up with your lives. Or if you’d like the morning to be more special, you can have a cruise on the new Inspiration Hornblower where you can enjoy the relaxing ambience of the water coupled with a jazz band and unlimited buffet.
If mom wants to be more active this Mother’s Day, you can take her for a morning kayak tour to the La Jolla Sea Caves. Aside from getting your daily exercise, this will surely become a bonding moment both you and your mom will never forget. I know you are surely hungry after a day of rowing, so you might as well go for a special luncheon at the new Creekside Restaurant. Enjoy great food and great music; this will surely be a gastronomic delight. Mother will surely enjoy a night at the zoo as she learns new lessons about the little critters and their mothers at the San Diego Zoo.
You can also take her to the hottest event of the season – the Blues Festival! Enjoy a night of fun and dancing with 25 live bands playing the whole night through! Not to mention the 8,000 lbs of crawfish served for all guests to enjoy. You can add a twist by renting a limousine in San Diego to chauffeur you to your destination! Imagine her smile as she steps out of a luxury limousine or perhaps a Maybach, or Mercedes Benz. Oh how wonderful she must look! It’s a good thing that San Diego Limousine Services is very easy to find. With arrivelikeroyalty.com, looking for event transportation or luxury transportation is as easy as a click of a button! Now you can have a Maybach limousine or a Mercedes Benz limousine of your choice fetch you at the San Diego airport and drop you off at one of the luxurious hotels in the city. You can now arrive like royalty with a luxury car rental for that morning cruise with mother. I’m pretty sure your mother will get the hang of riding in limousines, so go call and book luxury transportation for your whole vacation! After all, Mother’s Day comes only once a year so make sure to make each one memorable for that special woman in your life.
With our Mother’s Day food gift idea, our wallet can live another day and Mom will feel wonderfully appreciated.
Food gifts lend themselves well to personalization, so it’s easy to see that, with a little imagination and a lot of love, your Mother’s Day food gift can – almost – be for her like a day off, a mini vacation even, resort style, for good old Mom. Start by asking yourself, “what’s her favorite food?”. Does she love breakfast in bed? Brunch on the patio with a vase of freshly picked wild flowers? Does she like a formal setting at the dinner table, but rarely has the time to set it herself? Ask yourself what Mom likes most when it comes to eating. You can see how you might develop your ideas.
What if Mom’s favorite food is chocolate? Well, come to the party, with a giant box of chocolates. You can get them inexpensively and wrap each one individually yourself. Boxes can be expensive, but you can make one too. Wrap that box in festive paper and ribbon, with a lovely rose stuck through the ribbon. Sweet, simply and memorable, and made by you.
If coffee or tea is her day and night beverage, you can put together a handsome Mother’s Day food gift basket. Put an assortment of sample size bags of exotic coffees or teas, along with some cookies, into an attractive basket (that she can use later for another purpose), and tie it all up in tissue and lace.
Breakfast in bed is probably something Mom seldom sees – Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity for you to pamper her. You can use do-ahead recipes, preparing waffles or pancakes, muffins and dishes such as quiche or fruit salads the day before serving. Mom’s breakfast or brunch will be ready to serve in less than half an hour.
With any of these Mother’s Day food gifts, a vase of her favorite flowers and a handmade Mother’s Day card will have her smiling all day long. Ask any Mom if she’d enjoy such a gift. Undoubtedly, you’ll hear a resounding, “Yes!”.
