Mother’s Day is Sun., May 9, and it’s time to decide where to eat, shop, and spend time with the mother figures in our lives – whether they birthed you, raised you, or are a major part of your life. We’ve put together a (non-exhaustive) guide to help you get started.
Brunches + lunches
Parnassus Books’ Signed First Editions Club | For the bookworm mother in your life, shop local with a monthly signed book subscription. Plus, Ann Patchett will send your mom a Mother’s Day card. 📬
Mother’s Day Cookie Kits | Pick up a DIY cookie kit + decorate them later with the family. Proceeds from each box will go towards helping nonprofit Mother to Mother provide baby bundles to local mothers in need.
