You can never repay your mother for your upbringing, but you can definitely shower her with gratitude and gifts to show your appreciation! Sunday May 12th is fast approaching, and if you’re like me and wait until the last minute every year, know that there is still time to get her something really great this year. Here is a list of possible gift ideas she’ll be happy to open.
Julep Nail Parlour – I’ve never met a mother who didn’t appreciate a good pedicure, and the manicurists over at Julep sure know how to paper a gal. Along with manis and pedis, they also offer an array of facials, and have gift sets available online and in store.
Frenchy’s Day Spa – This Parisian inspired day spa in Madison Park has all the frills, candor and fun you could ask for! They have all the services under the moon – I’d suggest the hot stone massage, and for the pregnant mom the Mellow Mama massage which includes safe and prenatal techniques to relax those lower back muscles that are carrying that little hump.
Pike Place Market Flowers– You can’t get a bouquet that will look as beautiful and last as long as a custom bouquet from one of the vendors in Pike Place Market. It might be worth going down to the Market on Saturday to beat the crowd, and get a nice bundle before they’re picked over on Sunday.
Hitchcock Madrona – Does your mother love unique jewelry? How about loud scarves and hats? This Madrona boutique is the place to find uber chic unique pieces you won’t find anywhere else in Seattle. They rotate through artists, so you’ll be sure to come home with a one of a kind piece she’ll love, and if aren’t sure what to get, the owner Erica is usually around to help you on your quest for the perfect gem.
Theo’s Chocolate – Sweetest treats in Seattle, this delightful local chocolate shop is the first certified organic fair trade fair for life bean-to-chocolate factory in America. They have some of the most unique flavors like Coconut curry, chai latte, and cherry & chili! My advice if you’re not going for the collection of bars, get her the big daddy pack- a layer of graham cracker, vanilla infused caramel, and marshmallow covered in dark chocolate- YUM!
