With the early days of spring upon us, it’s a sure sign that Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Our wives and mothers do so much for us, let’s make sure they are treated like queens this year! Long Beach has no shortage of fun activities and treats for mom, so there’s something for every wonderful woman out there.
Classic Mother’s Day Brunch
Sail away on the amazing Queen Mary for a lovely Mother’s Day brunch that’s truly fit for a queen. Parker’s Lighthouse also offers a beautiful brunch this year. You can’t beat getting a bit dressed up and heading out on the town for a delicious brunch – and mom will surely agree.
Chocolates aren’t just for Valentine’s Day – mom will swoon over a box of artisan chocolates from Romeo’s Chocolates. If she’s more of a cupcake kind of girl, check out Frosted Cupcakery or Sweet Embellishments in Long Beach. Maybe you’d like to really celebrate mom with a bang? Head over to The Wine Crush for a special bottle to pop in mom’s honor. Maybe even sign her up for the Wine Club while you’re at it?
Your wife or mother likely spends her days making sure everyone in the family is okay. Motherhood is a selfless job, and Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse for mom to get some pampering. Treat mom to a foot massage at home, or book her a massage at La Dolce Vita Spa. Perhaps a manicure or pedicure is more her kind of relaxation? Head over to Bliss on Broadway.
Free but Fun
Mother’s Day is not just about gifts and pampering – it’s about celebrating and spending time with the powerful, loving women in your life. Take a walk along the beach or around the beautiful Earl Burns Japanese Gardens. Prep a picnic, cheese plate, or bring those chocolates from Romeo’s to Hilltop Park and soak up the sunset. Give thanks to your adoring mother or wife, and reminisce on all the good times you’ve had.
