7 Ways to Make Mother’s Day Memorable
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and you can always go with an old standby for a gift, but why not make this day one to remember—for you and for Mom. We’ve partnered with a few organizations to bring you the best ways to really shine a light on mothers for their special day.
Add a little extra shine to Mom’s day with Albarré Jewelry, one of St. Louis’ premier jewelry stores. Give Mom an incredible surprise by letting Albarré redesign one of her old favorites, or get Mom something new to love; choose from watches, rings, necklaces or bracelets. As a bonus, Albarré carries local designer Laura Kathleen exclusives, which are sure to elevate any outfit.
Mom won’t forget this Mother’s Day, because you got her accessories with the power to make any outfit pop. At Melanie’s, you’ll find those very accessories, from pashminas to pearls, handbags to hats. We all know any mom loves a good bargain, so she’ll also appreciate what a good deal you’ll get for all of her gifts. In just one trip, you’ll have two satisfied customers.
Take Mom out for two amazing experiences in one. First, stop at Mary Ann’s Tea Room for a special Mother’s Day Brunch on May 10. Dine on danishes, waffles and eggs Benedict. Pair your meal with a premium tea or cocktail, or both, if Mom wants. After you’ve had your fill, stop and shop in Enchanting Embellishments where Mom will find a little of everything. She’ll find everything from designer fashions, jewelry and accessories for herself, to interior designs and furnishings for her home. Now that’s a day fit for a queen!
Bring Mom a little adventure and romance this Mother’s Day Weekend with a trip to see the Saint Louis Ballet’s performance of “Don Quixote.” Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ famous novel, the story translates onto the stage as one of the most technically challenging ballets out there, with incredible dancing that marries classical ballet and Spanish dance, bullfights and gypsies. The performance is great for moms of any generation, as well as the youngsters, so the whole family can join in. Catch both evening and matinee performances May 8-10 at Touhill Performing Arts Center.

Show the moms in your life (grandmas are moms too!) they’re at the top of your list with a monthly gift. Get all the work done in one round with ClubsGalore, which offers more than 40 gourmet gift subscription options, like spa, dinner, dessert or even a gift card subscriptions. If your mom likes a little bit of everything, you can even customize your months of giving, letting you send her chocolates one month, a spa package the next and a bottle of bourbon after that. If you’re running a little behind on gift-giving, you’re not out of luck. You can easily present her with a gift announcement via email, or you can print it out as a surprise in your Mother’s Day card. The expedited shipping option can also ease any time crunch you’re under.
Show Mom you’ve been listening and get her a gift from a shop she already goes to and loves. Vie carries some of the best brands, including Rachel Zoe, Minnie Rose and Nicole Miller, so you’re guaranteed to pick a winning item. If she’s got her wardrobe on lock, instead opt for the stunning home decor she can show off at her next book club or family gathering.
Encourage Mom’s creative side this Mother’s Day with an evening of masterpiece-making. Mix up her favorite cocktail ahead of time and bring it —that’ll be the only thing you need to worry about; Pinot’s Palette Webster Groves takes care of all the other supplies. After all the laughing, painting and dancing is done, you’ll both leave with personal pieces of fine art.
