Without a doubt ­­–– Moms are real-life superheroes. They inspire us, they support us, and most importantly, they love us unconditionally (even during our “terrible twos”). What better way to celebrate the incredible mother figures in your life than with something special from the heart of SC for Mother’s Day? 

Brunch a-Bunch

After letting her sleep in, of course, get the perfect day started with a delicious brunch. Fat Cat Biscuits will deliver a glorious, fully ready, gift box filled to the brim with goodies like biscuits, coffee beans, jams, cookies, and pimento cheese. If you want to take a wilder approach, check out Riverbanks Zoo’s Mother’s Day Brunch To-Go. This brunch feast feeds four and includes a delicious medley of sweet and savory options, a plant from Riverbanks Botanical Garden, and (most importantly) a bottle of bubbly.

May Flowers for Ma

Is it truly Mother’s Day if flowers aren’t involved? We think not, and Blossom Shop is making it easier than ever to give the gift of a beautiful bouquet. They have several Instagram-worthy floral arrangements available for your choosing, and you can get this Mother’s Day classic delivered straight to her doorstep.

Shopping Spree 

If shopping is your mom’s love language, then a gift card to her favorite boutique will earn you plenty of brownie points. Imagine This Boutique in The Vista, and LaRoque on Devine Street, are two chic options that offer gift cards and online shopping. Mom can find the perfect outfit from the comfort of her own home, or she can save it for a future day out.

Sip, Sip, Hooray for Mom

Let’s be honest, we’re not always the easiest to deal with. For that reason, Mom deserves a drink on her special day. You can’t go wrong choosing between any one of Lula Drake’s wines in their extensive collection. If local brews are her drink of choice, pick up a pack of craft beers from Market on Main for a refreshing end to the day.

Sit back + Relax

Wrap everything up by giving Mom an at-home spa experience. Light a few 2-in-1 Soy Lotion Candles from Creative Energy Candles, pour her a glass of wine, and let the relaxation begin. (Extra points if you throw in a foot rub!). Send her off to bed with one of their Essential Oil Roll Ons, and she will be sure to have sweet dreams about her fabulous Mother’s Day.
