Breakfast in bed, a bursting bouquet, and a thoughtful note go a long way. But, this year we think it’s time to go above and beyond for mom! So, if you’re scratching your head trying to come up with something special, don’t worry. Our members have deals and activities that will make planning a breeze, no matter what your mom loves.
Give the Chef a Break
There are three little words no mom wants to hear on Mother’s Day: “What’s for dinner?” She may be a master in the kitchen the other 364 days a year, but today it’s time to let her relax. If your culinary skills aren’t up to snuff The Common Man is here to lend a hand. They’re offering full meals for families of four to go. All you have to do is put your order in by May 3rd, pick it up, and reheat for a mouthwatering meal even the most discerning mother will love.
For the Art & Floral Lover
Does your mom see the beauty in all things? If so, she’ll love the Lakes Region’s stunning scenery as our natural world puts on its annual spring time show. Better yet, take her to the Lakes Region Art Gallery where she can gaze at original art and photography by local New Hampshire artists. Mother’s Day weekend, the Gallery will be showcasing their newest collection as well as floral designs and pieces from local florists, garden centers, and floral designers. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the beauty moms bring into our everyday lives!
For the Mimosa-Loving Mom
If your mom is an avid bruncher, you won’t want to miss this Mother’s Day at Owl’s Nest Resort. They’re serving up some amazing brunch specials at their on-site restaurant, Panorama Six82. In addition to weekly brunch favorites, they’re cooking up some extra special menu items just for mom. Plus, if you need a last-minute gift, their retail shop the Sport’s Nest offers amazing golf gear and apparel.
For the Foodie
She’s probably told you many times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Our friends at Follansbee Inn couldn’t agree more. They’re hosting an extended Mother’s Day Sunday breakfast just for her. Plus, she’ll also receive a complimentary beauty bag with locally crafted soaps and lotions. If your mom is a cheese-lover, they’ve got her covered with a Saturday evening cheeseboard—you just supply her favorite wine! To further sweeten the deal, she’ll also receive a complimentary $25 gift certificate to use towards her next Follansbee stay.
“Where’s the Beef?”
If your mom likes a brunch she can really sink her teeth into, The Indian Head Resort’s annual Mother’s Day Brunch is the perfect choice. From 11AM to 2:30PM enjoy an unlimited brunch buffet featuring a prime rib carving station, dessert buffet, mimosas, and more. Reservations are required, so be sure to call 603-745-8000. You won’t want to miss this!
For the Craft Enthusiast
Your mom is one-of-a-kind, she deserves a gift as unique as she is! If your handmade cards always have her in tears and the mug you painted is her absolute favorite, she’ll love a trip to the Meredith Fine Craft Art Gallery. The League of NH Craftsmen is a non-profit organization that encourages and promotes the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional hand craft. So, join them at the Meredith Fine Craft Art Gallery and celebrate local craftsmanship and mom at the same time.
For the Avid Antiquer
Is your mom known for her thrift store finds? Does she spend her Saturdays cruising the neighborhood for yard sales and sidewalk treasures? If so, she will be absolutely thrilled by the Vintage Market on Squam Lake at Cottage Place! For just $5, she can explore vintage and salvage wares, antiques, arts & crafts, gifts, and upcycled curiosities to her heart’s content. With live music and food carts, this event is an all-day affair and an absolute crowd pleaser.
Let the Brew Lover Take Flight!
If your mom is always looking for the next best thing on tap or hordes those hard to find, uber-local brews we have the perfect treat. Take her to Hobbs Tavern and Brewing Company! In addition to their typical frothy, hoppy delights, they’ll be serving up an epic Mother’s Day Buffet. Join them from 12 to 5PM for delectable delights and, of course, a cold one (or two.)
