Mothers are special in so many ways. Not only did they bring us into this world, but they taught us to be the delightful people that we are today. We owe them everything! This Mother’s Day show your Mom how much you appreciate her by doing something special with her. We’ve created an inspirational list of unique experiences for every type of Mom on Mother’s Day.
THE BOOKWORM MOM
Take your mom to Copeland’s of New Orleans’ Brunch Buffet for bacon, jazzy eggs, waffles, and more delicious foods than we can list. Then swing by Books-a-Million and treat Mom to the latest romance novel or mystery on her list. Don’t tell your siblings, but you’ll be mom’s favorite this year.
THE HEALTH NUT MOM
Buy your mom a Fitbit and then guide her on a brisk walk on the picturesque Paul G. Boorman Trail or hilly Cargill Long Park Trail. After 10,000 steps, she won’t feel guilty when you chauffeur her to the all vegan bakery, 24 Karrots Cafe, for a delicious lemon mint or chocolate on chocolate cupcake.
THE KEEPSAKE MOM
Surprise your madre with a custom charm bracelet by MKW Design Co.’s Jewelry Bar located inside downtown’s State of Mind. Shop for this special gift in the days leading up to Mother’s Day and become eligible for special deals inside the store. Remember to stop by before the holiday because this all American-made store is closed on Sunday.
THE FOOD & WINE MOM
Make sure you mom has her i.d. and take a journey to one of our beautiful local wineries. Enjoy shrimp and grits over fried green tomatoes at Enoch’s Stomp’s Mother’s Day Brunch or try a “Mommy’s Little Helper” Sweet Tea Sangria with lunch at Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards. Either destination will be perfect for a holiday memory she’ll cherish for years.
THE PRACTICAL MOM
Pack a picnic and head to one of Longview’s beautiful parks like The Green, Kidsview or Lois Jackson. Dine al fresco while you spend quality time reminiscing about your favorite childhood memories. End the day with a Lemon Bloom or Strawberry Sunshine snow cone at Shivers Natural Snow. If you visit the Bar-K location this Saturday, mom’s snow cone will be free! But don’t forget, they’re closed on Sunday.
