While you should be loving and appreciating your mother every day, Sunday is the official Mother’s Day and there should be no shortage of breakfast-in-bed, fresh-cut flowers, and washing your own dishes. If you have yet to find that perfect gift or you’re still planning what to do with your fantastic mom, then click through our gift guide and let the ideas appear before your eyes.
For the mom who wants to spend the day doing as much as possible, take her to brunch at the Hotel Boulderado or L’Atelier. Then spend some time at a few of the downtown art galleries like Boulder Arts & Crafts who is hosting a Maruca Designs Trunk Show, and then how about a bit of culture with Boulder Ballet’s rendition of Cinderella. And you cannot forget the chocolate. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Piece, Love & Chocolate understand the need for a well-earned truffle.
Or if your mom wants to do minimal running around with maximized relaxation, then a trip to the spa is in order. Barris Laser & Skin Care and ten20 have just what the momma called for and it comes in the form of a massage, manicure, pedicure, and facial. Top off the royal treatment with an afternoon of local wine tasting from Settembre Cellars at downtown’s only specialty olive oil store, Oliverde. Perfect!
Give your beautiful mother some extra love this Sunday and if you forgot, then you still have time to plan something special and give me a high-five for reminding you.
