How to Spoil your Mom this Mother’s Day

Tags: Downtown, Food, Fun, Local, Outdoors, Shopping, Theatre

It’s almost Mother’s Day! Are you ready? Instead of running to the nearest store on Sunday morning for a last minute gift for your mom, plan ahead and get her something that will really show her how much you love and appreciate her.

Make Mom Sparkle 

If jewelry makes your mom sparkle, consider a visit to Hillberg & Berk! A favourite of moms everywhere, Hillberg & Berk’s sparkle ball earrings are something your mom can wear all year long. Sparkle ball earrings are available in a wide variety of colours, including the new limited edition sparkle balls, Pink Pepper.

 

Pamper your Mom 

What mom doesn’t need a little pampering? Take your mom to En Vogue Day Spa for a relaxing afternoon where she can get a treatment such as a hot stone massage or pedicure complete with champagne and roses. An afternoon of indulging is guaranteed to make all of her stresses fade away, making it a good investment. En Vogue Day Spa also has a licensed bar, so mom can enjoy a raspberry martini or a glass of wine with her treatment.

 

Treat your Mom like a Queen 

Spoiling your mom with a Mother’s Day Royal Brunch at the Hotel Saskatchewan is sure to show her how much you care. With decadent options like eggs benedict, buttermilk pancakes, citrus marinated prawns, carved striploin, macarons, and salted chocolate ganache tarts, neither of you will need to eat until later. Much later.

 

Dinner with a View 

If an evening meal is more her thing, head to The Willow on Wascana. As the only restaurant located on Wascana Lake, The Willow has both a gorgeous view and delectable cuisine. To make the evening extra special, order the tasting menu with accompanying wine flight. If the weather cooperates, consider sitting outside watching the sunset over the Legislative Building while you enjoy dinner.

 

Regina Globe Theatre 

If you think your mom may be interested in enjoying Regina’s arts scene, take her to see the Little Mermaid at the Globe Theatre. Based upon the Disney movie, the Little Mermaid will have you both singing, “Kiss the Girl” all night long.

 

Sculpture Walking Tour in Wascana Park 

The gift of your time is one of the most precious things a mom can receive. The Mackenzie Art Gallery has a self-guided walking tour where you both can discover some of Regina’s best outdoor art. With nine sculptures including Joe Fafard’s Potter, Valedon and Teevo, the tour will entertain and educate you both.

 

Flowers from Wascana Flower Shoppe 

There is something simple yet thoughtful about giving flowers. Wascana Flower Shoppe has many different kinds of bouquets, so put some thought into it and design an arrangement. Choose from roses, daisies, carnations, lilies, and more. They even have a bouquet that comes with Hillberg & Berk sparkle ball earrings!
