Celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day

Whether she’s still hard at work raising children or her kids have grown up and now have children of their own, Mom deserves our best efforts come Mother’s Day. And while traditional gifts like flowers and chocolate might be enjoyable, those who want to go the extra mile for Mom this year might consider the following gift ideas.

Concert tickets: Many adults recall the days of their youth when Mom would relax while listening to some of her favorite music on a lazy summer afternoon. Why not take a stroll down Memory Lane and take Mom to see one of her favorite acts in concert? Even if you don’t share Mom’s musical tastes, she will still appreciate the chance to spend an evening out on the town with her kids and some good music. There are many great musical events coming up in May and June – like the Pender Harbour Blues Festival, or the Gibsons Jazz Festival, and for fans of choral music there’s the Kathaumix’w Choral Festival in Powell River for a real getaway treat.

Theater tickets: If Mom is a fan of live theater then nothing will elicit a bigger smile than tickets to a Broadway show she has had her eyes on. If Broadway is a bit too far for you to travel, do your homework and find a traveling production of a former Broadway show or opt for the Driftwood Players’ upcoming dinner theatre production, Murder at the Reach, coming to a venue near you. See ad on page 8 of this week’s issue of The Local Weekly for dates and locations.

Parts unknown: Moms who love to travel and experience other cultures would certainly appreciate a trip abroad or a domestic getaway to a region of the country they have yet to explore. Before booking any such trips, speak to your Mom and ask if there’s anywhere in particular she’d like to go. Such trips can be expensive, so adults might want to speak to their siblings and finance such an excursion together. For a local getaway, why not consider a spa weekend at Painted Boat Resort or West Coast Wildnerness Lodge? Consider a special ‘fly and dine’ option for the whole family, flying up on a Tofino Air charter to West Coast Wilderness Lodge for lunch or dinner, even an overnight stay and some fun side expeditions exploring the area before boarding a return flight.

Get creative, and let Mom experience something special this Mother’s Day.
