Mother’s Day Ideas {10 things}

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, but don’t worry — you still have time to plan something special for that mom or mother-figure in your life!  Plus we’ve got some great ideas on how to wow your mom this Mother’s Day 😉

Here are 10 things in the 805 that will make a mama in your life VERY happy {you’re welcome}.

 

1.  Unwind with a Spa Package at the Four Seasons Westlake Village {You can choose between a 50 minute facial, or 50 minute tranquility massage for only $145}

  • BONUS: It comes with a glass of sparkling wine or a smoothie served poolside, as well as access to pools, eucalyptus steam room, sauna, fitness center, and classes ALL DAY.

2. Breakfast in Bed Kit from our favorite, Helena Avenue Bakery in Santa Barbara.  Pre-order by Thursday, May 11th, and you can ensure that mom can spend a few extra hours in bed while enjoying some delicious treats!

  • BONUS: Add a bottle of Fess Parker’s 2014 “Fesstivity” Brut Cuvee to kick it up a notch 🙂

3.  Brunch {Jeannine’s, Saddle Peak Lodge, M Cafe at Calamigos Ranch, The Gallery Westlake, Sabor at The Lakes, Outpost at The Goodland Hotel, The Old PlaceWildFlour Bakery to name a few… um, yeah, so we really like brunch ;)}

  • BONUS: The options are endless, and you can invite the whole family to come along (but, don’t forget to make resos!).

4.  Yoga + Mimosas at Malibu Wines {Sunday, May 14th at 9am}

  • BONUS: only $20 gets you a 1-hour yoga class in beautiful Malibu Canyon + a mimosa!  Sounds like the perfect way to unwind 🙂

5. The 7th Annual Mom’s Day Run — perfect for the mom who would rather run than relax 😉

  • BONUS: Tacos Los Koras will provide his famous, breakfast burritos to all the participants, plus chocolate-covered strawberries, the biggest donut holes you’ve ever seen from Rolling Pin Donuts, cupcakes from the winner of Food Network Cupcake Wars… and more!

6. Tiny Porch Concerts at Peter Strauss Ranch {Sunday May 14th from 5-8pm} — perfect for the mom that loves music and loves the great outdoors!

  • BONUS: this event is FREE 🙂 Bring a picnic (don’t forget the wine!) and treat mom to a concert by Grammy Award nominee Rose’s Pawn Shop.  Their music is described as “a wholesome mishmash of creek mud, rusty nails and your mom’s cookin’.” Sounds good to us!

7.  Buy or make her a unique gift she will love {OK this might be obvious, but sometimes coming up with an idea is hard!  Check out this list courtesy of Real Simple, and thank goodness for Pinterest — there are a plethora of DIY ideas you can search}

  • BONUS: Everyone loves a thoughtful gift, and with the comprehensive list by Real Simple, you are sure to find something that fits your mom’s personality!  If DIY is more your style, Pinterest is sure to please and you still have time to get materials and make the perfect gift.  Here’s a DIY tutorial for a painted mirror — find a good quote for your mama, and voilá!

8. Wine Tasting {Malibu Family Wines, SIPVentura County Wine Trail or any of the many Santa Barbara Vintners}

  • BONUS: You can include friends and family and make a day of it — Malibu Wines has live music on Sunday, too!

9.  Make brunch at home!  Let’s face it – she cooked for you for how many years? Time to return the favor.

  • BONUS: No need to tip a waitress or make advanced reservations.  Not sure what to make?  Well, here’s a delicious and wholesome recipe from one of our recent posts! And I always like to consult the pros, like Martha Stewart, Food Network, and a personal favorite, Food and Wine.  Don’t forget the mimosas & fresh flowers {moms LOVE those}!  Also, check out Paperless Post for some adorable [and free!] online brunch invitations – totally the icing on the cake 🙂

10. Weekend Getaway [sure fire way to become the favorite child 😉 ]

  • BONUS: Sites like LivingSocial Escapes, Groupon Getaways, and Travelzoo make it possible to treat your mom to a weekend away, while still maintaining your budget.  Plus, she can schedule the vacay whenever her calendar allows! [see individual deals for rules and restrictions]

How will you celebrate your mother [or mother-like-figure] in your life?? And happy Mother’s Day to all you 805 mamas out there!
