How to Make Mom Feel Special This Mother’s Day

Mom deserves to be spoiled every day, but especially on Mother's Day. Make the entire celebration as special as she is by starting with a flower delivery from one of the North Shore's best florists before sending mom to the spa for some much-deserved pampering. Then end the day with the perfect gift, which you found at one of the area's most unique shops. Read on for a few of our Mother's Day offerings and click here for the full list. 

Surprise Her With Flowers

You can never go wrong with a classic, so start this Mother's Day by surprising mom with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. At Morning Glory Flower Shop (1822 Glenview Road, Glenview), a 2018 North Shore Choice Awards winner, you'll find a variety of beautiful arrangements, like For Mom with pink roses and white stock or the seasonal Totally Tulips with 40 stems of brightly colored Dutch tulips. Or check out Saville Flowers & Gifts (1712 Sherman Ave., Evanston). Established in 1942, this family-owned business offers arrangements like Delicate Pink Elegance featuring light pink roses and Time for Tea with a tea cup vase, and you can add on a gift of chocolates or a Voluspa candle to accompany the bouquet you choose.

The Flower Shop in Glencoe (693 Vernon Ave., Glencoe) is another great option for your Mother's Day flowers. Find examples of what this local shop can do on Facebook and Instagram before calling or visiting to get started on your custom arrangement. And in Winnetka, Edward's Florist (917 Willow Road, Winnetka) has been a staple for more than 100 years. Stop by to shop a variety of gifts and home decor to accompany an arrangement of your mom's favorite flowers or a plant from the greenhouse.

Get Pampered

If anyone deserves a day of pampering, it’s mom. Treat her to a service at Dawn Skin Studio (828 Davis St., Suite 102, Evanston), where you can choose from facials, waxing, EyeHancements, and aromatherapy treatments. Dawn Skin Studio is hosting a Mother’s Day event on May 11 where you can treat mom to a facial and massage (limited space available), or you can take advantage of the May special: BOGO Facial (buy one Refresh Facial and get the second one 20 percent off). Call 312-937-0456 to book or to learn more about the May 11 event.

At Asha SalonSpa (1604 Sherman Ave., Evanston), mom will love being treated to a Hydrating Mani/Pedi or Aveda Aroma Mani/Pedi, Botanical Skin Resurfacing Treatment, Aveda Aroma Body Polish, or Coconut Massage, among many other services. Check out Asha’s Mother’s Day gift packages here.

And at Mario Tricoci (4999 Old Orchard Center, Suite E1, Skokie), you can buy a gift card and get a bonus (through May 12). Mom can then redeem that for a Swift Lift Firming Facial, Organic Ginger & Lime Body Scrub, Sticks & Stones Massage, Moroccan Oil Manicure or Pedicure, or a spa package for a full day of pampering.
