Mother's Day Gift Ideas

All mothers deserve some recognition on Mother's Day, and really every day in our opinion. They do so much! Especially over this past year, they have gone above and beyond to ensure the health and wellbeing of their families. They've balanced work with home life and they are tired! They need to relax, have a drink and eat something good; and here are our picks to help them do just that.



Relax...

A gift card for any one of the luxurious services offered at Woodhouse Day Spa is sure to please any momma. They offer massages, facials and nail services in an environment so serene Mom will feel like she's on a mini vacay. Don't just hand her the gift card, though. Box it up with some bath salts, rollers and extracts from Bluegrass Hemp Oil. These products are made from full-spectrum CBD. They won't get her high, but they will make her feel like she's on cloud 9. A bundle like this will have Mom feeling her most Zen.




Have a drink...

Like the Carrie Underwood song, "Smoke Break":

She said, "I don't drink, but sometimes I need a stiff drink"

Let the world fade away...

After this past year, all moms could use a drink and Joseph-Beth Booksellers has cocktail mixers, simple syrups, and accoutrements to stock the home bar. We especially love these fun beverage napkins! Bonus points if you actually make the drink for her and serve it to her while she lounges on the couch catching up on her Netflix shows.



Eat something good...

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but I know a lot of moms that would agree that having a good meal is right up there on their list, too. Ouita Michel, Kentucky culinary royalty, has recently released her cookbook entitled, "Just a Few Miles South" compiling 150 recipes of popular menu items from her restaurants including Holly Hill Inn, Honeywood, Wallace Station, Windy Corner Market, Midway Bakery and Zim's. This book would make a great gift, but only if your mom likes to cook, otherwise it will come off as a nudge, and that will not bode well for you. Joseph-Beth sells the cookbook, along with a fine display of Kentucky Proud products. You can't go wrong with some of these tucked away in a tote bag with a gift card to Bronte Bistro where she can be waited on instead of her doing all the work in the kitchen.



Chocolate...

Talk about eating something good! Moms love chocolate. It's a proven, scientific fact. Given that this is horse country, it just seems appropriate that your Kentucky mom gets equine-themed chocolates. The bigger the box, the better! This unique box of Dark Horse Chocolates can be found at Macy's.

So there you have it, the three things moms need most this year. We want to wish all mothers (including ourselves) a very happy Mother's Day! You are valued and appreciated.
