Mothers are superhuman.
Once a woman becomes a mom, she will always have a piece of her mind carved out for the well-being of her child, no matter how old the child is. She bathes, feeds, entertains, and makes sure her kids get adequate sleep. She’s been pooped on. Spit up on. Thrown up on. Broken up fights. She wrestles the screaming spawn of Satan as she leaves the grocery store. She deals with fevers, colds, the flu, broken bones. Sure, dads can do all this too (minus expressing breast milk) but there’s just something about when mom makes everything feel okay.
Motherhood is quite the honor. Mother’s Day is a reminder to all moms they are superhuman. We gathered some gift ideas every mom would appreciate.
Coffee in Bed
Mom needs caffeine. House-made syrups. Perfectly crafted coffee concoctions – root beer and iced coffee? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Swing by Pilgrim Coffee before Mother’s Day and pick up a gift card for mom. She can choose from lattes, espressos, pour-overs, and tea. Believe us, it’s better than Starbucks. Oooo! And get the cinnamon rolls too! Pilgrim Coffee is closed on Sundays.
Mother’s Day Brunch
The classic Mother’s Day gift. One where mom doesn’t have to cook or clean up. Take a seat at McLain’s Market patio for Mother’s Day. McLain’s Market’s menu is diverse with bakery items to lunch to even a pretty good kids’ menu. A happy kid is a happy mom. And then send mom home with a box of pastries to go!
A Little Bit of Everything Nice
The Table took care of everything for you. The Table in Downtown Overland Park is a women-owned specialty food shop and caterer. They are offering a Mother’s Day women-owned and locally-owned bundle including artisan too-pretty-to-eat eats, a gorgeous bouquet from Flower House KC, and cocktail syrup with the recipe from Boozy Botanicals. Mama needs her cocktail.
Take Out and Relax at Home
Treat mom to a great meal without raising a finger… other than to call Strang Hall. Strang Hall is a collective of six chef-driven restaurants under one roof in Downtown Overland Park. There’s a restaurant for everyone at Strang Hall but only mom’s choice counts. Strang Hall features meals ready for two to six. They have a pretty cool outdoor patio too!
Nothing says relaxation like a spa day. With help from Sunlight Day Spa, you can pick up all the necessary items to treat her to a relaxing afternoon. Wine and Hors d'oeuvres? Yes, she would like that too. If you want more brownie points, purchase a gift card for a future spa day. Let’s be honest, she deserves many more spa days.
