Mother’s Day is approaching and it is time to give honor and adoration to the women who have nurtured us, provided for us, and most importantly, who have shown us unconditional love and support. Throughout the Queen City, there are many options to choose from, in which one can show appreciation. Regardless of age, there is something for every mom! From jewels to large family celebrations, here are a few ideas that may get you off to a great gift shopping start.
Jewels for the Jewel
While diamonds are a girls’ best friend the LeVian brand of fine gemstones and creatively designed accessories provides for a pleasant surprise of glitz and glam, unique to the standard offerings typically featured at this time of year. This line of fine jewelry is truly designed for the lady who has everything – everything within the norm that is! From chocolate to mixed berry diamonds, blueberry sapphires, and honey gold settings, this collection has great promise for pleasing the mom who deserves nothing but the best! For an up close and personal look at this fine collection, visit Belk’s Southpark, Macy’s Southpark and Northlake, Kay Jewelers, Jared and other fine jewelers throughout the area.
The Great Escape
For many moms, five or so minutes to themselves can be the difference between experiencing inner peace and teetering on the brink of insanity. For some, a typical day in the life of a mother consists of a 5-day-work-week and 365 days of home and lifestyle management of the entire family. As many moms delight in their abilities to take on the role of superhero caregiver, deep down inside “me time” is endlessly desired. With that being said, if you’re a mom in the Queen City, selecting one of The Ballantyne Hotel’s specialty spa packages should be added to your list of things to do! Located in the midst of South Charlotte’s Ballantyne Corporate Park, this luxury hotel offers a variety of amenities that will sooth the soul of any overactive and time-deprived mom. Packages can be arranged for mom alone, mother and daughter, and even couples. Hourly treatments, as well as, long-term stays can be incorporated into your Mother’s Day Spa experience. If you are looking to make a quick getaway, visit The Ballantyne Hotel or call 704.248.4141. For two night spa packages, call 1.800.325.3589 for reservations. You deserve it! Enjoy!
The More The Merrier!
Coming together as a family on Mother’s Day is an occasion that many mothers enjoy. Celebrating in the presence of those close and reminiscing on times passed, gives mom and the entire family a time to reflect and give thanks, as well as, create new memories. This year for Mother’s Day, create new memories at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, located in Belmont, North Carolina, west of the Charlotte perimeter. Set elegantly across over 100 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and conservatories, indoor galleries and dining terraces; the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens is every bit of being heaven on earth. Venue rentals can accommodate as small of a group as 50 to as large as 400. Rental costs range from $250 to $4250 depending on the day and the time of your scheduled event. With many choices available to accommodate your guest of honor, family and friends, the botanical gardens is an easy choice, if you are seeking to celebrate the beauty of life and motherhood.
Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms in the Queen City!
