Pro tip: If you’re late to the planning game, send this article to your siblings to start the conversation.

Wine + dine

Relax + shop

Treat your mom to an afternoon of relaxation by bringing them (free with your ticket purchase) to the Mother’s Day Musical Healing session at Lexington Salt Cave. You’ll enjoy the benefits of halotherapy blended with live gentle acoustic guitar music.

Spend a leisurely afternoon shopping while supporting the International Book Project at its Mother’s Day Market and Afternoon Soirée. On Saturday, May 13 from 12 to 5 p.m. peruse local vendors like Pomegranate, Gatwick Beauté Collective + Crescent Moon Creative.

Free spirit + active

Did your mom also double as your chauffeur and constantly cart you to and from activities? Let them fulfill the need for speed + let loose on the track with the High-Speed Go Karts at Battle Axes.

Who doesn’t love a little friendly family competition? If your mom is the active type, try your hands (and feet) at Activate Games or put your brains together with an escape room at Breakout Games. Opt for more stationary fun at The Burl Arcade or with tabletop games at Villainous.
