So you let Mother’s Day slip up on you again, huh? And you find yourself unprepared to celebrate one of the most important women in your life. Now you’re scrambling trying to think of something amazing to give Mom for her special day. Last year you got her that great hanging flower for her patio. The year before you got her a gift card to her favorite store. And just a few short years ago, you made her that really cute construction paper card and macaroni necklace. Now what? What do you get for the woman who gave you everything, but she already seems to have all she wants? You’re at a loss! Don’t fret! We understand. We’ve all been there. Lucky for you, we have an idea! We think Mom needs a beach trip and we have compiled a list of
5 Reasons to Take Mom to the Beach for Mother’s Day 2018.
- Moms need downtime, too
Mom needs a day or two at the beach. Every Mom needs this. She needs a day to enjoy a beach stroll, putting her toes in the edge of the water, and just relaxing. She needs a chair in the sun and an umbrella and her favorite tunes on her radio. She needs to be able to put on her shades and kick back and watch the cotton white clouds float by. Mom worked hard all year taking care of everybody’s everything. And for every little emergency that popped up, she found a solution. She’s everyone’s super warrior, prayer queen and in-house doctor. Her kisses are magic and her food unmatched. She’s a laundry beast and the taxi driver for her kids and grandkids. But this super lady needs some downtime sometimes, just like you do. Mom needs a weekend at the beach. And what better weekend is there to celebrate Mom than Mother’s Day Weekend?
- Mom won’t have to cook to get fabulous food
With so many great choices for seafood and steaks in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan, you’re sure to find the perfect place to take Mom for her special outing. For great seafood, try local faves Tacky Jacks or King Neptunes. Want a delicious steak? Check out Cosmos for great food and a super friendly staff. How about some gumbo to brag to her friends about? Sea-n-Suds is the place for gumbo. Think Mom would enjoy a Bloody Mary? Bills by the Beach has a Bloody Mary that’ll make her whole mouth happy. What’s the best part about taking Mom out to dinner? She doesn’t have to do the dishes! Who will be a winner in her eyes? You will!
- Mom will be surrounded with amazing shopping and spa opportunities
So you gave Mom a gift card last year? That’s a thoughtful gift, but this year you’re ready to take it up a notch. Instead of just a gift card to one store, give her so many shopping opportunities, she won’t be able to do them all in one day. By bringing her to the beach, you give her malls like SanRoc Cay and Pelican Place at Craft Farms to shop. She will love the shops at The Wharf at Orange Beach and she may even need to ride the Ferris Wheel while she’s there. Don’t forget about The Shops at The Boardwalk in Gulf Shores next to The Original Oyster House where she’ll find great appetizers when she needs a shopping break.
Would she rather spend the day at a spa getting her hair or nails done? Or maybe she needs a massage? You can arrange for Mom to have a massage done right in her vacation home. Check out Austin Massage Therapy for details and booking an appointment. For hair, skin and nail pampering, visit Spas of Eden or Serenity at the Beach. Either of these salons are sure to make Mom look and feel like the special beautiful person we all know she is.
- Mom can experience a fun night out filled with music and cocktails
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach night spots are known for cold beverages and great live local entertainment. LuLu’s is always a great place to start. With the last name “Buffett” Lucy Buffett is certainly an expert when it comes to great music and cold drinks! Another fun place Mom is sure to enjoy is Live Bait. With fabulous cocktails, great music you can sing along with and a unique appetizer menu, Live Bait has been an island favorite for years. Make sure you try the Greek Seafood Nachos at Live Bait. Mom will love these!
- Mom can stay in a beach home fit for a queen
