This week we’re spending time celebrating moms. All those wonderful women in our lives that have made our lives so much richer, taught us about life, learning, love, and caring for people and the world around us. Where would we be without their love, support, and guidance?!
While we know they deserve more than just one special day of celebration, we wanted to share some ways in which you can celebrate with and for mom to show her just how much she means to you.
The three big things to remember this Mother’s Day:1. Let mom sleep in! When was the last time she got to do that?
2. Don’t let her lift a finger. Meaning she shouldn’t have to cook, clean, or plan anything for her special day.
3. Quality time. Regardless of what you plan to do, remember, that quality time spent with her is what it is all about.
Mothers in general often neglect their own needs or self-care, rather choosing to be there for their family and friends. While this is their choice and they would make it time and again, they still need that ‘self-care’ to keep their own cups full so they can keep on giving to others as they always want to do. With that said, here are a few things you may want to consider.
Schedule a Spa visit- Give mom some pampering at a local spa. A massage and facial can go a long way for relaxing and rejuvenation. Beaufort has some top-rated spas you may enjoy, Trinity Wellness Spa, The Beaufort Day Spa, Aqua Med Spa & Salon, and Celadon Spa.
Bring her breakfast in Bed! An all-time favorite for sure! Nothing say’s I love you more than a homemade breakfast in bed. She doesn’t need to cook, and you’ll be serving up her favorites in the comfort of her jammies in bed.
Book a Private Yoga Session- Even if mom hasn’t practiced Yoga, it is a great stress reliever and relaxing way to start a day. Booking a private session is a special way to spend time with her and if she hasn’t done this before, introduce her to it.
Lounge by the water- For mom, a relaxing day sunbathing and splashing or taking a swim in the pool or water may be just what she needs! Whether that’s in your own pool, a community pool, a nearby lake, or the ocean. You can never go wrong if mom loves the water.
Take her out for a special Mother’s Day Brunch- You’ll find a decadent brunch spread at Sweetgrass Restaurant on Dataw Island, Southern Grace Bistro at Tabby Place Downtown Beaufort or a huge buffet at Tavern in Royal Pines.
Now for other fun ideas to do with Mom on her special day.
Is mom an outdoors lover? If so, she may love to do these things!
Visit a winery! Enjoy the beautiful scenery while tasting a sampling of local wines and chatting away the hours. Sounds delightful, right?! In Beaufort, you could try one of these Best Wineries around the Lowcountry.
Take a trip to the local Farmer’s Market- There’s just something about Farmer’s Markets that moms love. All that fresh produce, local vendors and artisans, fresh bakery, and food. Always so much fun. We have a wonderful Farmer’s Market in Port Royal!!
Day trip with a local hiking trail & picnic lunch- we are blessed with gorgeous landscape and hiking trails in the Beaufort area. On a wonderful spring day, take mom out for a fantastic hike to take in the beauty of our area and pack a blanket and big picnic lunch to share the day reminiscing about the past. She’ll love it.
There are so many more ways to celebrate with mom! You can take her to a movie, clean the house, do yardwork, host a game day or night…the opportunities are endless. After all, she really just wants to spend time with you!
Whatever you choose to do, don’t forget to make her a fabulous card and maybe pick her a bouquet of flowers.
Wishing all moms, Grandmothers, Step-Moms, Great-Grandmothers, and all those who have stepped in as moms for other children, the BEST Mother’s Day! You deserve it.
