10 Mother’s Day Ideas In Asheville That Will Make Your Hot Mama Feel The Love

Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 13, 2018 this year and I’m sure you have a plan cooked up to let your hot mama know how much you love and appreciate her, right? No?  Don’t worry!  Here are ten Mother’s Day ideas in Asheville guaranteed to make her feel like the superhero she is…

1. Recreate Your First Dates

Book a sitter then head out to all your old haunts. Take her (blindfolded?) to the special places where you fell in love on a progressive date night. No longer reside in the town you did when you started dating? Choose similar venues or create a first date experience by visiting the places you’ve always wanted to try together but haven’t yet (so it’s a new kind of first).

2. Propose to Her Again

Go as flashy as a sunrise hot air balloon flight or as simple as a champagne toast at Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar in the Grove Arcade.  Either way, it will be so sweet to let her know you’d do it all over again with her by your side. And, if your budget allows, a new piece of jewelry from one-of-a-kind artists in the River Arts District.

3. Share Your Favorite Moments Watching Her Mother

Sometimes expressing your feelings via the written word is more intimate. You don’t have to be a poet to speak from the heart when it comes to offering encouragement and appreciation. While a blessing and enjoyable, motherhood is really hard. So, let her know you value everything she does for your family by compiling a list of special moments. Sometimes the little things can go unnoticed… so let her know you notice!

4. Explore a Spectacular Garden

Stop to smell the roses with your love and visit Asheville’s Botanical Gardens or the NC Arboretum.

5. Take Her to Brunch

Your lady definitely deserves a round (or two or three) of Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s, so plan to be the designated driver. This isn’t just any old brunch date so why not dress to impress by wearing your best. Ambrozia Bar and Bistro, White Labs Kitchen & BarRezaz and The Market Place are all offering unique Mother’s Day brunches that will wow her.

6. Give Her Blooms

Order a Mother’s Day Bouquet from Blooms on Tap or enjoy a coffee date with botanicals at Flora Boutique.  Flora has a full espresso bar with a boutique full of unique plants, local pottery and jewelry, and other homewares.

7. Send Her to the Spa

That’s a no-brainer, right? Asheville Wellness Tours, Asheville Salt Cave, Wake Foot Sanctuary and Shoji Spa & Lodge are some unique ways to pamper her in Asheville. Of course, if a day at the spa isn’t an option, you can create your own romantic at-home version of a spa date.

8. Take a Scroll Through the City

Take a self-guided, evening stroll through downtown with Asheville’s Urban Trail.  Finish the tour with twilight cocktails on a rooftop bar!

9. Go to an Event

There are plenty of fun happenings Mother’s Day weekend in Asheville and we encourage you to think outside of the box. Try Isis’s Lawn Series: Moonlight Streat Folk on Friday, May 11th.  Or a wild food foraging tour with No Taste Like Home on May 12 or 13th.  Jazz it up with brunch and live, lite jazz music at Jargon, Sunday, May 13th.

10. Go on a Mini-Getaway

If you can swing a romantic overnight, consider booking a future stay at some local B&B’s like Chestnut Street Inn, Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast Inn, or Cedar Crest Inn.  Gift her with flowers and an itinerary for a night away!

    These are wonderful ideas—and so creative! We’re also a big fan of brunch. Don’t forget about the Mother’s Day brunch at the Omni Grove Park Inn, as well.
