This year, the Mother’s Day shopping, dining and weekend events in the Memorial District will make celebrating all mothers’ immeasurably important role more meaningful and memorable than ever. Whether Mom, Grandma, or another mother figure loves a thoughtful gift, a meal filled with delicious food and laughter, or spending quality time with loved ones, the Memorial District is the perfect place to spend Mother’s Day.
Beloved Texas jewelry makers like Kendra Scott have gorgeous gifts Mom will cherish for years to come. Browse their collection of timeless classic and new styles on their Mother’s Day Gift Guide here. Similarly, James Avery offers artisan jewelry such as charms, pendants, and more that will remind Mom of how much she is loved. Browse their Mother’s Day Catalog here.
Looking for something unexpected to surprise and delight her? Bring a piece of china Mom treasures to China Baroque. They can use the pattern or the piece itself to create an exceptional, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry for her. Perhaps she needs new stationery, or greeting cards? Meet with the experts at Paper Source CITYCENTRE to find or create just the right thing. They also have a special Mother’s Day Collection here.
Every Mom deserves a little “me” time, and self-care is always a good choice for busy, hardworking Moms. If Mom’s idea of a lovely day is relaxing during a quiet manicure and pedicure, bring her to Anthony Vince Nail Spa, where she can sip on complimentary champagne, wine, cocktails, or nonalcoholic refreshments during her VIP treatment on Mother’s Day. Treat her to a gorgeous blowout at Brush & Blush Blow Dry Bar or a spa day at the Beautique Town & Country.
Know a health and wellness-minded Mom with a great workout at the top of her wish list? The new Burn Bootcamp is a women-only lifestyle facility designed to transform lives through a positive, encouraging, and supportive environment. Offering high-intensity 45-minute sessions that are different every day, get Mom a free trial here. Afterward, she can put her feet up with Lush Cosmetic’s handmade bath bombs, hand creams, eye masks, and more that will leave her feeling refreshed, renewed, and revived after a hard workout (and hard year of taking care of others).
No Mother’s Day is complete without a delectable meal shared with loved ones. Toast to Mom at The Moran CITYCENTRE’s Radio Milano Mother’s Day brunch. She’ll get to start her morning with a welcome mimosa and a special selection of delicious menu options while enjoying live music by guitarist Victor De La Garza.
Or taste-test Perry’s Steakhouse and Grill’s new Filet Mignon Stuffed Roast Mother’s Day special, a filet mignon stuffed with sautéed spinach, wild mushrooms, garlic, onions, fresh herbs and three cheeses. Don’t miss the orange vanilla cheesecake for dessert!
Does the warmer weather have Mom feeling like a margarita? Cyclone Anaya’s is always a good idea!
Speaking of summer right around the corner, why not try something seasonal at Seasons 52, where the menu changes with the season to feature 100% fresh produce.
Maybe after a few years staying put, Mom has travel on her mind. Take a culinary adventure to Italy at Brio Tuscan Grille, to South America at Sal y Pimienta, or travel to the City of Light at Sweet Paris.
For a taste of true Americana, wine and dine Mom at The Capital Grille, which will open early on Mother’s Day and serve a full menu of contemporary classics, as well as three brunch features from 11 am to 2 pm. Eddie V’s Prime Seafood will feature a prix fixe, three-course brunch in addition to the full menu, and $9 Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Bellinis. For a casual and cool get together, don’t miss the Ranch Waters at the The General Public, where it will be happy hour from 3-6 pm.
Have a wine lover in your life? Spoil Mom with Houston’s largest wine selection, and brunch or dinner specials at the Tasting Room. For brunch, the Tasting Room menu will feature savory Nutella Crepes with strawberries, and aged balsamic. The dinner menu includes Grilled Lamb Chops with tomato jam Brussels sprouts, horseradish whipped potatoes, and a Sherry pan sauce.
There are endless ways to say “I love you” and, no matter her style, spending quality time surely tops every Mom’s list. This Mother’s Day weekend, bring Mom to the Houston Orchid Society’s Annual Show and Sale at Memorial City Mall, where she will be able to browse exquisite exhibits featuring orchids, orchid arrangements, corsages, and orchid collectables. Orchids from around the world will even be available to purchase. Don’t forget your camera!
On both Saturday and Sunday, the whole family can come to CITYCENTRE for “Sunday Night in the Plaza”, an evening of live music ranging from jazz to pop and classic rock to country.
Finally, to care for mothers everywhere, consider donating blood during the May Gulf Coast Regional Blood Drive at Memorial City.
Happy Mother’s Day!
