You love Mom. Mom loves to shop. She cruises through all the sales at the giant department stores, knows where to find the hidden gems at malls, and is a master at finding bargains online from sites like Amazon to QVC.
So how do you make Mother's Day special for your Mom?
This year, don't just give her a card and a present. Treat her to an experience. Make a memory she'll cherish forever when you take her on a treasure hunt for something she'll love.
Mother's Day is too important to waste on a simple excursion to an outlet mall or department store. This is a special occasion, so select somewhere that radiates a unique sense of place with an atmosphere that can't be found online or at the mall. Take her where there is an exciting fusion of shopping, dining and entertainment. Take her to Broadway at the Beach.
From the moment you drive onto the perimeter road with its tall palm trees blowing in the breeze, you know you've arrived at a different kind of place.
As you stroll together among the unique boutiques and attractions, you never feel rushed. There's an aura of relaxation and an implicit invitation to pick a bench in a common area, sit a spell and people watch.
With more than 100 shops, there's so much to see and do. Maybe you'll stop by Key West Hat Company and show Mom how great she'd look in one of their special hats. If your Mom's taste leans toward the fashion forward, it may be fun to check out the apparel at Gemini Boutique.
If she's a jewelry lover, stop by Allure and look at the lovely jewelry and accessories to match any outfit. Over at A Silver Shack, let her discover the largest selection of silver jewelry in town, much of it with a European flare. And don't miss SC Jewelers where she'll discover one-of-a-kind pieces like their signature Palm Tree Necklace.
From shops like Bijuju with its innovative and beautiful handbags, fashion jewelry and accessories, to the sun-powered products at Del Sol, you can fill this special day chancing upon one unique item after another.
With all that shopping, she'll probably work up an appetite. No matter her taste, you can treat her to the intimate setting of a small eatery, a memorable meal at a distinctive restaurant specializing in her favorite food, or the atmosphere of an open-air deck overlooking Lake Broadway.
It's been 102 years since President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day an official national holiday in 1914. Make this year the one your Mom will remember forever.
