6. Santa Barbara Roar & Pour Wine Festival at the Santa Barbara Zoo {Saturday May 7th from 5-8pm}

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 so we have a list for you courtesy of Real Simple and thank goodness for Pinterest there are a plethora of DIY ideas you can search}

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

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