Mother's Day Gift Guide

We can all agree gift giving is so fun and seeing their reaction is priceless, but sometimes finding the perfect gift for any holiday feels like a huge struggle. At the end of the day, Mom’s just want to spend time with the ones who made them a mom! Here’s a few easy gift ideas to show your mom your love and appreciation and to celebrate her! This gift guide focuses on businesses in the Alexandria area but they can easily be done with small businesses near you as well!

Spend your day together at home:

Spend Mother’s Day Sunday relaxing at home with your mom! Enjoy a morning of sleeping in and making her a nice brunch. Prep for the day by picking up brunch necessities and keep your gift simple! First, grab some post brunch desserts from Little Cakes Cupcakery in Glenwood. Amanda, the owner, makes these tasty treats out of her home! She has a real passion for baking and it shows in her creative designs. If you can’t snag some tasty desserts from her, make sure to hop onto her website where you can find a recipes tab to try something new! 
After you’ve got your dessert covered, we suggest getting a beautiful floral arrangement for your mom! Wild Bloom Flower Truck will be hitting the streets again starting on Friday, May 7th. They have the most unique options and best of all, you get to put together your own bouquet which makes it even more thoughtful! Checkout her Instagram page for the dates/locations her truck will be at this spring/summer and to see the fun arrangements she puts together!

Spend your day together out & about:

“Give the gift that always fits, a gift card!” The best part of giving a gift card is the recipient gets to decide what to spend it on. Send her to a local salon for a day of pampering! Our favorite is Ella’s Salon. They are a full service salon and just moved into their newly built facility. Services include hair, nails, massages, facials, lashes, & more. She will have plenty to choose from to feel refreshed and pampered. Another way to spend the day out is to gift your mom with a gift card to a local store. (or your favorite local online boutique (anyone have any rec’s here…? ;) ) Take her downtown and shop til’ ya drop! This is a great way to spend time together while supporting small businesses.

Spend your evening together at dinner:

So, say you almost start fires every time you cook and you’d rather let someone else do the cooking or you just don't feel like cooking… That’s ok! We also rounded up a local dinner recommendation. Take your mom to the Lure Lake Bar! They have some of the most amazing divine food and an upscale vibe! They have a nice range of options for all. Be sure to make reservations as I’m sure everywhere will be a little busy on Mother's Day!

At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts and it’s spending time with the ones you love most! Show your mom appreciation for all she does for you, today and every day!
