Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, a holiday near and dear to our hearts, as ours is a Mother/Daughter business.

Here are some great local, personal, and affordable gift ideas for Mom that incorporate the best gift of all — spending time together!

M.O.M’s Run: For the athletic mother/child pairs, consider running (or walking) in the Mary O’Brien Memorial 5k for cancer in Somerville. The race starts at 10 AM, and the $30 entry fee will go directly to cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Check out the race details here.


Duckling Day Parade: Even if you don’t have any little ones in your family, head on down to Boston Common to watch the cuties dressed in Duckling costumes. Check out this beloved 30-year tradition here.


The Paint Bar!! We’ll be offering a total of four classes on Mother’s Day (two at our Newton location and two at our Newbury Street location. Check out the paintings on our calendar. We’re especially excited for our 9:30 AM double painting class in Newton, “I Love You to the Moon and Back.”

Even if you and your Mom can’t make it to a class together, your masterpiece will make an amazing, personal gift for your Mom this Mother’s Day — or any day!
