Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Atlanta Moms
Want to get into the kitchen and prepare a special meal for Mom? Check out the Atlanta Tour Box from Unexpected Atlanta and bring one of the award-winning food tours to your dining table. Each box feeds six people and offers other valuable gifts as well.
Unable to get together with Mom on Mother’s Day? Try presenting her with a gift certificate to her favorite Atlanta restaurant and setting a date for a special meal together when that is possible.
Pick up a few pampering products and present them with a gift card for a spa treatment when salons and spas reopen. Maybe pair it with a weekend getaway at a hotel.
Have a gift delivered right to Mom. Atlanta offers a great selection of gift shops and florists. We love Georgia-based French Market Flowers for gorgeous blooms with a French flair. The market offers delivery (often the same day, but order early for Mother’s Day) to the Atlanta metro area. Or check out Gresham’s Florist of Atlanta for beautiful arrangements to suit any need. A gift basket more to Mom’s liking? Sensational Baskets is an Atlanta institution and can create gift baskets for virtually any occasion, including Mother's Day. And Grits Bits will brighten up mom's day with a basket of Georgia Goodies.
