C&A Mother’s Day Guide
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! Finding the perfect gift can be a challenge, so we are here to help you get creative. Whether you are looking for jewelry, a fun-filled day in the city, or a night out on the town, we have a list of ideas that are guaranteed to make your mom feel like the queen she truly is.
What to get:
When it comes to gifts for mom, we say, ‘Don’t Overthink It!’ This Mother’s Day, stick with classic, tried and true gifts that every mom will absolutely love—we guarantee it.
Diamonds are a mom’s best friend. Head over to Bernie Robins Jewelers to pick up a posh pair of birthstone stud earrings, the perfect complement to any outfit and a must-have for mom.
With Spring in full swing, Evantine Design has a variety of refreshing candle scents that any mom would love. Stop by Evantine Design’s boutique on Walnut Street for a candle, or a beautiful floral arrangement for mom.
Mother’s Day brunch is always the perfect outing for the special day. Treat mom to a three-course brunch (don’t forget the Mimosa’s!) at acclaimed chef Richard Sandoval’s Aqimero, located in the lobby of the iconic Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia.
Or, check out brunch at Sofitel Philadelphia, featuring seasonal dishes the whole family can enjoy including a Bloody Mary Bar, Carving Stations, Raw Bar and Kids Table along with flowers from Robertson’s and complimentary family portraits.
If you are looking for a day trip, head down to shore for some other great brunch options such as II Verdi at Tropicana Resort and Casino in Atlantic City or Stephen Starr’s tastefully kitschy homage to cocktail culture, Continental Atlantic City, where guests enter through a water-edged pathway that leads to a spacious “indoor” patio with a sunken fire-pit lounge. Or, for the perfect dining destination in the suburbs, treat your mom to an unforgettable Mother’s Day brunch at Mistral King of Prussia.
3000BC WellMed Spa is the perfect getaway that blends the best of both worlds of botanical and science for the past 25+ years! Send your mom to get a 3000BC signature facial, or choose from a variety of luxurious massages that will relieve all of her stress in an instant.
Summer will be here before we know it. It’s time for your mom to freshen up her wardrobe with new trendy summer pieces. Alisa Frederico of Dressing Jane’s personal styling services is the perfect gift to give! Alisa can come to your mom’s home, or meet at her favorite shopping destination to assist in putting together the perfect summer look.
Have a young at heart mom? Surprise her with tickets to The Roots Picnic, the 10th annual music festival created and hosted by the hip-hop group. You and your mom can enjoy a day filled with music from the latest hip-hop artists at a show you won’t want to miss!
HoagieNation is another can’t miss music festival celebrating all things Philly curated & headlined by Philadelphia’s own Daryl Hall & John Oates. Surprise your mom with tickets to this for this special event in Philadelphia on May 27th.
