Celebrate Mom in Highlands, NC

This Sunday, May 8, 2016 is Mother’s Day. Celebrate Mom and all she’s done for you. You haven’t forgotten, have you? If so, read on for some ideas…

TAKE MOM OUT. Don’t make Mom a meal at home; she’ll only have to clean up behind you after you’ve “cleaned up” and that’s no way to spend her special day! Take her out to a lovely brunch or dinner at one of the area’s great restaurants. You can be sure she’s treated like a queen! Get in touch with Mom’s favorite restaurant and make a reservation if required.

ADMIRE BEAUTY. Weather permitting, take a stroll around town to admire the spring blooms that are currently popping out all over. You could also take her to see the majesty of Dry Falls or another waterfall in the area. If the weather is uncooperative, or if you’d rather be inside, visit the Bascom and wander through their galleries.

SPOIL HER. Flowers and gifts are a nice way to show Mom you love her. From a single red rose to a grand bouquet of cut blossoms, it’s hard to go wrong with flowers. If your mother is a gardener, maybe she would prefer a plant she could place in her garden. If she is a cook, a couple of small potted herbs would be nice to have for her kitchen window.

SPOIL HER SOME MORE. Being a mother is hard work, so give her time to relax. A gift certificate from a local spa or salon is a fantastic present! No matter if it is a gift certificate for a mani/pedi or an entire day’s pampering package, there will be an option to fit your budget.

THE BEST GIFT OF ALL AND IT’S FREE. Simply tell her you love her and how much she means to you. Then do that chore she’s been nagging you about.

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Landmark Realty Group!
