Mother’s Day Ideas for Moms in Abilene

I love mom
Facebook

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, Sunday, May 12th to be exact. Have you decided what you are going to do for your mom? If not then I have a few ideas here that might help you out. In Abilene Mother’s Day coincides with the Western Heritage Classic and college graduations. However, don’t lose sight that this is a day to celebrate MOM.

Eating Out

 
 

There are many restaurants to chose from to take mom to for a great meal. No one has to cook or clean up and that frees up more time to spend with mom doing something fun. Let mom choose where she wants to eat, even if you don't care for her choice, it's her day. My mom loves Abuelo's, Cracker Barrel, Red Lobster, and Texas Roadhouse. I did find that Remington's Restaurant inside the MCM Elegante Suites will be having a special Mother's Day Buffet. You do need to make reservations though. There will be 3 seatings; 11 am, 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm. They have a special carving table with prime rib and ham and will also be serving talapia, turkey and dressing, enchiladas, a salad bar,  dessert table and more. It ranges in price from $11.95(kids), $19.95(seniors) and  $21.95(adults).  Just keep in mind that if you do eat out and don't have reservations you may be waiting a bit!

Spa Day

 
 

What mom wouldn't want a day where she is treated like a queen? I would start this day with brunch (see above suggestions) then take her for a facial, massage, mani/pedi, and/or hair style. All women love to be pampered so give her a chance to just relax and enjoy the stress free day at the spa. My mom loves to have pedicures done and with sandal season upon us this is a perfect opportunity to help mom get her feet ready! We have some great spas here in Abilene like Absolute Perfection, Vendetta's, Avanti, Image SculptorsPura Vida to name just a few.

Store Bought Gifts

 
 

Mom's love jewelry! I bought my mom a Pandora bracelet a couple of years ago, now for special occasions I buy her a new charm to add to the bracelet. Flowers and plants are good gifts for mom as is chocolate. Vleta's candies would be a great gift for mom; homemade chocolates from right here in Abilene. You can get mom a gift card to her favorite place to shop, that way she could get something she really likes or needs. My mom loves to scrapbook, but I have no clue what tools she needs for that hobby so a gift card to Michael's or Hobby Lobby would be the perfect gift for her. If your mom likes to drink wine you could buy her a bottle of her favorite wine or even make a small gift basket around the wine. You could had some cheeses and maybe even those chocolates I mentioned.

Homemade Gifts

 
 

I'm a crafty person, as is my mom, so we love to do things together. You could simply make your mom a gift for you ask her to join you and do it together. I want to make a special scrapbook for my mom of things that we've done together. Mom and I are very close so we go on trips together, took dance together, we've taken cake decorating and cooking classes together, zip-lined, swam with dolphins, para-sailed and more. We have literally done everything together and I would love to have a book of all of those adventures to share with her.  Just a few weeks ago we sat and made deco-mesh wreaths together along with my boyfriends mom. We had what my grandpa used to call a 'hen party'; just the girls getting together and chatting and having a good time. Not only will you have a special day together but you will also have a keepsake.

Do Chores

 
 

Remember when your mom used to make you do chores? Well this time you could just volunteer. You could do some housework and laundry, maybe mow the lawn or trim the trees. Maybe she needs some handy work done; pictures hung, fence fixed, painting done.  You could even take her car and have it cleaned or go to the grocery store for her. You might even combine this with my #2 suggestion and send her out for a spa day while you spend the day doing her chores. (Hey it's just a suggestion)
