To see this year’s Mother’s Day Guide, visit here.
Although the mothers, aunts and grandmothers of the world would love it if everyday was Mother’s Day, that’s no reason not to go all-out on an amazing gift. For the women who stood behind you through all of life’s tribulations, here is a list of amazing gift ideas that’ll tell mom thank you for putting up with rancid diapers, bratty teen years and your first tattoo.
Rose’s at Home
Don’t put up with tedious brunch reservations that break the bank. Instead of an early morning where she has to be out and about, treat your mom to a day of rest accompanied by a three-course meal from Rose’s At Home. Starting at $110 a month, purchase a Rose’s at Home dinner membership, providing monthly gourmet meals finely compiled by one of D.C.’s culinary hot spots. With hits like brussel sprouts caesar salad, popcorn creme brulee and a possible wine pairing, this monthly delight is great for the mom who wants a delicious night of relaxation. $110+. rosesathome.com; rosesluxury.com // @rosesluxury
Cross Stitch at Shop Made In DC
The best gift a mother could ask for is to spend time with her kids. And at Shop Made In DC, you can spend some quality time together creating cross-stitched crafts to decorate her home. This workshop, held at the Union Market location, is a great way to pick up a new skill and actively make your Mother’s Day gift with the woman who’d hang up macaroni portraits if you still made them. Have a relaxing afternoon stitching and chatting with your mom. If you’re a competitive family, compete to see who makes the best stitch. $42. 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Shop Made In DC: 325 Morse St. NE, DC; shopmadeindc.com/classes // @shopmadeindc

Wine and a Good Book from Kramers
She’s always told you to stay on top of schoolwork, but now is your chance to get on her case about reading. Kramers is running a subscription deal where recipients are given a staff-selected book and a perfectly-paired bottle of wine. Give your mom the gift of literature this Mother’s Day. But don’t forget the wine. She needs a drink while she crosses the Atlantic with Captain Ahab or learns to be earnest with Oscar Wilde. $39. kramers.com // @kramerbooks
Take Care Pop-Up Shop at Union Market
Before you learned about Coco Chanel, Donatella Versace or any other fashion gurus, your mom was the person who gave you all your beauty tips. And with Union Market’s Take Care Pop-Up Shop, you can let your mom dispense all her beauty secrets at an event swimming with self-care products. From green skin creams to quality aromatherapy, expose your mom to a beauty selection that’ll erase the wrinkles she got from raising you.
