Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Everyone loves mom! That’s why she should be celebrated with gifts that are equally as incredible as she is all year long. This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 13th and we’re rounding up some of our favorite gifts to inspire you. Take a look below.

What is Mother’s Day without a beautiful bouquet? One of our favorite places to buy locally crafted flowers is Flowers for Dreams. Plus, each bouquet benefits an amazing local charity in Chicago and Milwaukee, so you can feel good about treating mom to those deluxe roses.

The obvious present for a design or fashion obsessed mom is Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design's brand new book, The Closet Design Bible. Many of Lisa's own expert tips are included in the book to inspire readers, including mom, to elevate the once overlooked space that is a closet, and ultimately calm the chaos of everyday life. 

If mom happens to be a wino, the West Loop’s fully-operational urban winery, City Winery, is the ideal spot to tour and taste. The winery’s cellar even holds 250 French oak barrels with 18 tap lines that automatically cool the wine to optimal temperatures! Learn more here.

Gift giving is made simple with Ravenswood’s Mother’s Day Gift Market on Wednesday, March 9 at Ravenswood Covenent Church! Guests can shop local retailers, artists, and vendors, including Amy’s Candy Bar, Laura Williams Studio and more, from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Bring the kids too to create a personalized card for mom with an “I love you because…” photo backdrop!

Mark the occasion with a delicious dinner at The Palm Restaurant Chicago! Their Surf ‘n’ Turf for One is a perfect treat. Chefs pair a tender 9-ounce Filet Mignon with a succulent 1.5-ound Whole Nova Scotia Lobster, served with drawn butter and fresh lemon. We’re getting hungry just talking about it!
