Of course taking mom out for brunch is always a big hit! Some of our favorite spots include Over Easy, Buttercloud, Ma Mosa’s, and Morning Glory.
If you want to take her shopping locally, over Mother’s Day weekend there is always a lot of craft fairs throughout southern Oregon. See a full calendar HERE. If you want to get mom some unique flower arrangements that are locally grown we have quite a few places, but our favorites include Bee Sweet Blooms, Fry Family Farm, Wizard’s Way Flower Farm, and Electric Gardens.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to make your mama feel special. Some of my favorite mother’s day have been a day of gardening, handmade cards, and a homemade dinner. In my opinion gifts don’t have to be really extravagant, it’s the thoughtful ones that mean the most to me.
