Last-Minute Mother’s Day Ideas
We’ve all been there: That moment when you can’t decide how to celebrate Mother’s Day with Ma. Well, you’re in luck: Here’s some Eleventh-Hour inspiration don’t forget a card and flowers!
For a relaxing day
There’s nothing quite like a spa day on Mother’s Day! Surprise her first thing in the morning by taking her to your favorite local spa for a peaceful retreat. Pedicure, manicure, massage, facial get her the works, and she’ll thank you later.
For an entertaining day
When a Sunday includes popcorn and a good show, Mom’s sure to have an enjoyable time. Take her on a movie day date, or whisk her away to the Fabulous Fox Theatre and see “The Sound of Music” at 1 p.m. You can purchase “The Sound of Music” tickets here.
For a delicious day
Now’s the time to learn her secret recipe for meatloaf! Ask Mom to spend the day with you and have her teach you one of her favorite recipes. Stock up on ingredients at a neighborhood farmer’s market (Soulard and Tower Grove are great ones!), then head home and cook up a storm in the kitchen. Make sure to take the reins as the food nears completion, and pour her a glass of Cab so she can relax until dinner’s ready.
For a picture-perfect day
Take nostalgia to an entirely new level and surprise Mom with an old-time photo shoot. You know, the ones where you dress up in Revolutionary War-era costumes and don’t smile for the camera? Photos like those are guaranteed to provide a few belly laughs for years to come. Be sure to visit The Tintypery in St. Charles, then take a stroll down the town’s historic Main Street afterward.
For a thrilling day
Although the Gateway Arch Riverboats Mother’s Day Brunch Cruise is sold out (though, you can get your tickets now for the Father’s Day Brunch Cruise on June 19!), take Mom to the Arch for a monumental ride 630 feet in the air! Get your Journey to the Top tram ride tickets online here.
