3 Memorable Ways to Spend
Mother’s Day This Year

If you’re lucky enough to live within driving distance of your mom—or a mother figure, or grandma, or any other woman whose love and guidance you’re especially grateful for—and you’ve both been vaccinated, getting together (safely) might be the greatest gift of all. So we’ve planned out three sweet ways to celebrate in the comfort of home.


Skipping the hotel brunch and hosting at your place comes with the freedom to play around with place settings (how pretty is that antique-looking china?), slow-juice your own OJ (pro tip: add a splash of champers) and linger as long as you like. Plus: When you pull a present out of your purse, you won’t feel bad about showing up every other table around you.


For the woman who takes care of everyone else, a head-to-toe pampering session—one that starts with a stress-melting soak and ends with a movie marathon in silk pajamas and matching slippers—is the ultimate luxury. The ZIIP, a nanocurrent device that aims to stimulate collagen and elastin to make skin look brighter, more supple, and all-around fantastic, is also sure to please.


Sure, a weekend in Napa might be a little ambitious—but spending the evening sipping her favorite Sangiovese is 100 percent doable. (If she’s more of a Sancerre woman, no worries—Night Inn’s world-class experts can curate your bottle selection to her liking.) Just add a gorgeous platter piled high with fruit, cheese, and truffle-infused salami.
