Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for San Diego

By  | 

Skip the flowers already, Mother’s Day is about appreciating Mom with the very best.  And there is no mistaking she deserves it.

Mom (or grandma, aunt, sister) has loved you, cared for you, cooked for you and stayed up with you while you were sick.  Make sure your Mother’s Day card is filled with (or attached to) something awesome.

Whether your mom is a diva not-so-in-disguise, a culinary genius compulsively seeking the next new kitchen gadget or recipe, or just a woman looking for some good ole relaxation, there is a perfect gift out there for her.

The Fashionista Mom

Of course we want to shower Mom in Lanvin and D&G, but if those are a bit out of your price range, look no further than these great online deals.  Choose from Must-Have looks from Ann Taylor that will make your mom the envy of the neighborhood or bestow a new handbag that sets off her spring wardrobe. This Michael tote by Michael Kors is great for fitting everything from makeup to snack packs.

The Culinary Fanatic

In lieu of flowers, get Mom a beautiful and edible bouquet from Edible Arrangements.  Their wide variety of arrangements can fit any budget and please everyone from a small family to a large gathering.  If your mom loves cooking up her own family recipes, you could get her wonderful professional cookware from the Giada De Laurentiis for Target collection.  Featuring classic cooking tools, there are also a number of recipe ideas, including Baked Gnocchi, that will make your mouth water.

Busy Business Woman

Or is your mom a busy business woman just in need of a day off?

Get her a relaxing massage from The Knot Stop in Hillcrest. They are offering a $55 special for a one-hour Swedish massage or visit Zen Spa in Carmel Mountain Ranch for a personalized package deal.

Zen Spa is offering three personalized mix and match packages for Mom this year.  You can choose your package to include a: Customized Full Body Massage, Rejuvenating facial, Hot Stone Massage, Aromatherapy, Prenatal Massage, Reflexology Foot Massage and/or Waxing Services.

Another ticket on the road to relaxation:  food.  Take Mom out to brunch to The Cottage in La Jolla—famed for their take on eggs benedict.  For something less sophisticated and more laid back, try Baja Betty’s in Hillcrest.  They have endless margaritas and Mexican food and an outdoor patio to enjoy a sunny May day.

Of course, not every mom falls into one of these distinct categories.  She can be a mix of all of these things and more so be limitless and surprising.  All Mom really wants is to spend some quality time with one of her favorites.
