Mother’s Day Gift Guide

By  | 

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14th. While Mother’s Day shouldn’t be the only day throughout the year that we show our moms how much they mean to us, it is a good excuse to shower them with love and gratitude. One way to show mom how much she means is by spending time to choose a thoughtful gift that is uniquely her. Instead of waiting until the last minute and scrambling to find a mediocre present, we have a gift guide that will help you narrow down the best gift options.

While material gifts can retain sentimental value, they can sometimes feel impersonal and haphazard. We suggest spoiling your mom with a gift card to a day spa for a massage or luxurious “me” time. Here’s a list of spas that offer gift cards and mothers day specials in San Diego:

Kin Spa
Catamaran Resort
SKIN Day Spa
Suki Day Spa

Chances are, your mom would rather spend time with you than receive a gift. Take your mom out for brunch, lunch, or dinner. When we visit with our mothers, they so often take care of us by preparing a meal or purchasing one for us. Reciprocate the gesture and offer to take your mom out to her favorite restaurant. Or, invite her over and prepare her favorite meal. The sincere effort and kindness of a home-cooked meal is always appreciated.

Some gifts are perfect for Mother’s Day can be enjoyed with company. We recommend heading over to Venissimo Cheese (they have locations in Liberty Station, La Jolla, and North Park). These experts can guide you to excellent wines and pair them with perfect cheeses for a scrumptious gift for mom, catered to her specific taste.

There are great stationary shops in San Diego that offer unique cards and gifts that are perfect for mom. Paper Source in La Jolla has hundreds of cards to sort through in order to find one that suits the special qualities and interests of your mom. Papyrus in the Fashion Valley Mall also has a mix of handmade, unique cards to choose from.  There is no better way to express gratitude than a heartfelt note written to your mother inside a personalized card.  These are often the items that mothers hold dear for a lifetime. The Mother’s Day displays at these gift shops make it easy to find the perfect trinket to present to your mom on her special day.

It’s fun to use Mother’s Day as an excuse to go on an adventure and get outdoors, especially as the weather gets warmer and warmer. Enjoy a nice bike ride with your mom and conjure memories of childlike glee in the great outdoors. Bike rentals are available in Mission Bay at Ray’s Rentals and on Coronado at Bikes and Beyond.

As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, we hope that you consider some of these options to help you express your gratitude and love for your mom.
