Whether celebrating your mom or another special person who has always been there for you, Richmond is filled with opportunities to treat them like the queen they are this Mother’s Day while supporting local businesses. Read on for some of our top picks.
For Moms with a Sweet Tooth
If your mom has a sweet tooth, grab a pint of her favorite Gelati Celesti ice cream flavor, her favorite gourmet candies from Zazoli, or pick up freezer-to-oven croissants or French buns from Whisk to wake up with Sunday morning. Step up your gift giving a notch with an ice cream-making workshop you can enjoy together at Sweet Wynns.
For Culinary-Inclined Moms
Treat mom to a pairing workshop at Truckle Cheesemongers, where she’ll learn to pair cheeses with wine or beer like an expert or a cooking class at Mis en Place. Pair the certificate with something from Accoutre or Ladles & Linens so she’ll have something fun to unwrap!
For Moms Who Prioritize Self-Care
Encourage your mom to take time for herself with a gift certificate for Pilates at Niche Pilates, a facial at Apothec, or at-home hair and body care from Adiva Naturals.
For Traditional Moms
Looking to go the traditional route with jewelry and flowers? Richmond’s oldest jeweler, Cowardin’s Jewelers, features everything from estate jewelry to sentimental charms, watches to necklaces, while Strange’s Florist offers stunning bouquets as well as potted plants, depending on Mom’s preference.
For Outdoor Loving Moms
For moms who love to get outside and explore the city, a Basket & Bike tour complete with lunch at Upper Shirley is perfect, while those who seek a little more adventure will love a kayak (whitewater or flatwater available) or paddleboarding trip through RVA Paddlesports.
