Here it is Thursday already and Mother’s Day is but three days away. If it completely slipped your mind, that’s ok ― we’ll point you in the right direction to ensure the Mom in your life has an amazing day.
Last-Minute Gift Ideas
DIY Gift Basket: This one is easy and guaranteed to please Mom if you fill it with stuff she loves. Ideas include a bag of her favorite coffee or tea, fresh flowers, candles, gift cards, her favorite perfume ― you get the idea. Or make it a themed basket with, again, a bag of her favorite coffee, a sweet treat from a local Edina bakery, a snazzy coffee mug and, of course, a bouquet of fresh flowers.
The Gift of Pampering: The Day Spa Edina offers a massage membership, spa packages and gift cards (you can get an instant gift card online). Call them at 952.830.0100 or visit them on the web at adayatthespa.com.
Cooking Classes: For the Mom that just can’t buy enough cookbooks and is always clipping recipes, the gift of cooking classes is ideal. Williams Sonoma at the Galleria offers them. (952) 285-1338, or learn more by clicking here.
Cheer her On: Pay the $40 it costs to enroll Mom to run in the 23rd Annual Twin Cities Race for the Cure®. It happens on Mother’s Day and this year’s host site is Southdale Center, right here in Edina. Go to the website for details.
