5 Ways to Celebrate Mom This Mother’s Day

Whether Mom loves food, the outdoors, or is just looking to relax, here are some ways to spend Mother’s Day this year!

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show that special woman in your life how much she means to you. Whether your mom loves food, the outdoors, or relaxation, here are some ways to spend Mother’s Day this year:

Plan a Picnic

If Mom loves the outdoors, she’ll love having some fun in the sun with her favorite foods and people. Grab a picnic basket and fill it with your favorite lunchtime foods, such as sandwiches, salad, lemonade and more! Find the perfect picnic spot by visiting to check out some of our favorite picnic spots, such as Heartwell Park, El Dorado Park and more. Don’t forget the picnic blanket and an umbrella to hide the sun!

Visit a Farmer’s Market

Spend some time wandering through a local Farmer’s Market in search of the best fresh fruits and vegetables. Luckily, Long Beach offers plenty of Farmer’s Markets on the weekends that your mom will be sure to love:

Bixby Park

Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

130 Cherry Ave., Long Beach, CA 90803 (in Bixby Park)

Green Acres Farmers Market

Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Long Beach Marina

Sundays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parking lot of the Alamitos Bay Marina, on E. Marina Dr. one-quarter mile south of E. 2nd St.

Cook Dinner

If Mom is used to being the cook of the house, it's time to give her a night off in the kitchen! Cook up the goods you found at the Farmer’s Market. Or, use one of mom’s favorite cookbooks to recreate a dish she usually makes! No matter how it comes out, Mom will be sure to appreciate the effort you put into making her day chore and stress-free.

Enjoy a Mother’s Day Breakfast or Dinner

For those who aren’t great in the kitchen but still love to eat, take Mom out to her favorite, local restaurant! Luckily, many restaurants offer deals for Mom and the whole family on this special day, such as Q Smokehouse who will offer free desserts all day. Or, make a reservation for a special Mother’s Day brunch or buffet, such as Boathouse on the Bay’s Mother’s Day Special Buffet.

Get Pampered

Indulge in some self-care this Mother’s Day by taking Mom to her favorite massage parlor or spa! Dr. Denise M. Jones, DC, located in Naples Plaza, is the perfect small business where Mom can truly relax during a massage from their massage therapist. Or, schedule an appointment for Mom to get her hair done at local hair salon, such as Static Salon, to make her feel beautiful and well taken care of!

No matter how you choose to spend the day, Mom is sure to love any activity spent with the people she loves. But remember, while Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to go all-out for that special woman in your life, make sure to celebrate and appreciate her every day!
