How To Have A Great Mother's Day With The Mom Who Loves To Shop

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.

Life Is Just a Breeze When You Fly A Kite

In spring, Myrtle Beach is the place to be if you love to fly a kite. Look up from the beach on a breezy day and you're bound to see colorful kites flying overhead and happy people holding onto the strings below.

Whether March comes in as a lion or a lamb, we head for the beach where the wind blowing off the ocean lifts the kites up, up and away. But Myrtle Beach is not alone in its love for kites.

All over the world, people are declaring March as National Kite Month. Still others are picking April as the month to celebrate. And, one site on the Web even declares that the “month" runs from March 21 to May 10. Go figure.

Declaring a special month to celebrate kites is just an indication of how much people all over the world use kites for work and play. Since kites were invented more than 2000 years ago in China, they have been used for everything from science and meteorology, to generating power. Some ingenious folks have even used them to pull sleds in winter and carriages when horses weren't available. In Myrtle Beach, we fly our kites for fun and relaxation, and the sheer joy of watching them soar across the Carolina blue sky.

If you're a kite enthusiast or just want to try your hand at kite flying, one of the best resources along the Grand Strand is Klig's Kites right in Broadway at the Beach. Klig's has been a fixture at Broadway for years, and it's so popular that it's currently undergoing a renovation that will make the store bigger and even better.

When the store reopens the first of March, stop by and experience a world of wonder. From single-line kites to dual and quad line kites, to kites that do loops, figure eights, dives and many other maneuvers, there are kites for all ages of kids and adults. And, while Klig's is known for its kites, it's also a great place to find flags, gags, windsocks, windchimes, mailbox covers, sports merchandise and much, much more!

Whether you choose to celebrate your kite month in March, April or May, start the festivities at Klig's Kites. Find your fun soaring high as you take to the sky with a kite.

The Holidays Are Over - It's Time To Spoil Yourself

For many of us, the holidays are a whirlwind of activity. From hosting parties, to cooking lavish meals, to taking down and storing decorations, there's hardly time to relax during this busy time of year. So, by the time January rolls around, we're tired and yearning for an opportunity to rejuvenate ourselves.

If you've been dreaming of luxuriating at a world-class spa, but find that's just a little outside your budget right after the holidays, don't give up hope.

It's possible to experience the triple treats of aromatherapy, moisture-rich skin softening and muscle relaxation at home for a fraction of the cost of that spa visit.

Today there are affordable — and yet extraordinary — soaps and lotions that can carry you and your imagination to a land of worry-free, no-stress pampering. And, you don't even have to leave your home.

The recipe for a heavenly spa experience is easy. Take one bath bomb — a hard-packed mixture of ingredients that fizz and bubble as they release their essential oils and lovely scents into the surrounding water and air. Add it to a tub of warm bathwater and surrender to the cozy water and soothing fragrances drifting around you. For 30 minutes, relax as the tension leaves your muscles and you let your mind ease.

Prefer a shower over a bath? You can still capture those feelings of rejuvenation and refreshment with a shower bomb. This little sister to the bath bomb delivers lavish, long-lasting aromatherapy benefits. Place it in the bottom of the shower near your feet and organic essential oils and lavish scents ride up on the steam from your shower, creating a unique at-home spa experience.

You can find bath and shower bombs, along with a wide array of soaps, bubble bars, shower gels, shampoos and lotions at Splash, located in the New England Fishing Village East at Broadway at the Beach.

Splash products are uniquely designed to help you create a relaxing atmosphere of all natural spa treatments right in your home. Made from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, Splash products have no parabens, alcohol, mineral oils or phthalates. At Splash, you'll discover a wide variety of chemical-free soaps crafted in beautiful designs, as well as an exclusive fragrance line of products and specialty items in bath and shower bombs, soy lotion candles, solid moisturizers and more.

The holidays are finally over and a new year lies ahead. Why not resolve to spoil yourself just a little in 2016? Begin a new routine of relaxation, pampering and refreshing yourself today and all year long.
