This weekend is a time to celebrate the woman who holds the family together – mom. She’s got an ear that always listens, advice that’s spot-on (whether our teenage selves liked to admit it or not), and is the walking, talking definition of a multitasking maven. The role of mama is not one to be taken lightly, and is one of the bravest adventures a woman can embark upon. Considering all she does every single day, this Mother’s Day is certainly a cause for celebration.
We’ve got the scoop on the best Mother’s Day gifts and activities this weekend, from spa treatments and craft fairs, to breakfast-in-bed gone luxe. Here’s everything we’re loving to make this Mother’s Day weekend extra special for the mama in your life…
