You can (and should) remember your mom on Mother’s Day with a heartfelt card or a bouquet of flowers, but don’t stop there! Every mom deserves a little pampering on her special day and there are plenty of ways to show you care, from spa days and date nights, to jewelry, candy and more. Here are a few ideas that will make this day more memorable for weeks, months and years to come!
Breakfast in Bed
Is there a better way to start the day than breakfast in bed? You may argue for a run or bike ride around the Aurora Reservoir, but if your aim is to pamper that special mom in your life – start with a fool-proof recipe for success. Food!
Looking at the how-to video for Crescent Breakfast Squares might make your mouth water and your tummy rumble – all good signs of a recipe worth trying. Who doesn’t love a yummy breakfast sandwich packed with scrambled eggs, ham and cheese?! Nothing could be easier than these little envelopes of deliciousness from Delish, where you’ll find 19 more can’t-miss breakfast ideas for mom. Not into savory? How about a little Creme Brûlée French Toast?
She WILL have to get out of bed to go to The Viewhouse in Centennial on South Clinton Street just 20 minutes from Southshore in Aurora, but it’ll be worth the effort. This Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet with its usual seafood towers, meat-carving stations, omelets, fresh sushi, and pastries has an extra-special menu for mom. She can bypass the ordinary fare and choose from coffee-rubbed prime rib, citrus-thyme leg of lamb, wild mushroom and egg white frittatas, pesto chicken and tomato crepes and/or Nutella waffles! Not to mention a Mimosa or build-your-own Bloody Mary. You can guess that at the Viewhouse, reservations are strongly recommended (303-790-8440).
Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifts
Simple Elegance Florists offer free delivery in Aurora and have beautiful arrangements to choose from. Some of the best sellers include the Radiant Rainbow (a bouquet of many colors) and Vibrant Shine with hot pink roses and Gerbera daisies, a vivid combination for mom.
If you’ve never scrolled through the unusual offerings on Uncommon Goods, do yourself a favor and check out the jewelry and other keepsakes. Looking for something really unusual? Made from recycled glass is this silver necklace that is also a fully-functioning kaleidoscope. The handcrafted pendant has mirrored surfaces that reflect tiny grains of multi-colored sea glass. Now that’s something you don’t SEE every day!
If mom’s a baseball fan, give her tickets to the Colorado Rockies – Coors Field is about 45 minutes from Southshore and the team is partnering with Susan G. Komen Colorado to help fight breast cancer. Each Mother’s Day Package includes a ticket to watch the Rockies take on the Brewers, a donation to Susan G. Komen Colorado and exclusive pre-game field access for a family parade.
Don’t forget your mother’s mother, either. A custom engraved personalized photo frame with Grammy’s name, or nickname, makes a treasured memory when showcasing a 5×7 photo of Grammy’s favorite grandkids. Another personalized idea for mom, grandma, a favorite aunt or friend is a flower pot emblazoned with the sentiment, “Love Grows Here.” Available at Great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (yes, there’s a site is exclusively for Mother’s Day gifts!) in red or purple with grandchildren’s name’s circling the top of the pot.
Skim through the unusual ideas for mom contributed by New York Magazine’s Strategist editors, including a Zabar’s bagels and lox care package and a ceramic French press. And for the Ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide, head to Country Living where you’ll find gifts, recipes, kid-crafted gifts to make and out-of-the-ordinary ideas, like a 23andMe DNA kit!
