Looking for a good alternative to waiting in long brunch lines this weekend? We've got the perfect (last minute) idea to celebrate Mom. Pack up the car and head just north of the Golden Gate for an easy hike to a secluded picnic on the beach.
Mother's Day is Sunday May 12th (you know this, right?), and there are many ways to express to your mom that she’s the best. Considering how many meals she’s made for you in your lifetime, here are some places where you can take her for brunch, ranging from fun to totally fabulous.
For all you last minute shoppers out there, we've got your back. We pulled together a bundle of hip mom-essentials from seven fantastic local boutiques, to mix, match and make her smile.
Just because it only dawned on you 10 minutes ago that Mother's Day is Sunday, doesn't mean your love for her is any less. Not to mention, she'll never know if you reserve a table for brunch now (just tell her you wanted it to be a surprise). We called on your behalf and these restaruants all have tables still available.
Try brunch with a twist at Maverick. You can’t go wrong with the duck hash made with duck confit, russet potatoes, medjool dates, sunny side up eggs, mustard sauce and fresh picked herbs.
An online treasure trove for all things handmade and vintage, Etsy is one of our top go-to sources when we want to break away from our fast fashion fixes and and opt for something unique but still inexpensive. After scouring SF's Etsy Local shop for this week's Mother's Day gift round-up, we wanted to share what's impatiently waiting in our shopping cart:
1. Queen Bee Bib Necklace by OhBlair, $99: This year, give her flowers that last...and look equally amazing paired with her favorite LBD or t-shirt.
With Mother's Day only three days away, chances are you've gotten the perfect card and gift taken care of. You even scored brunch reservations at Foreign Cinema to secure your 'favorite daughter' status. The only question left is the inevitable "What am I going to wear?", and if your mom is anything like ours, this sweet ensemble will leave her positively glowing (though it might also have a bit to do with the mimosas).
If Mother's Day crept up on you like it did us, you're not totally out of luck. Rather, take advantage of the research we've done for you (or um, ourselves) and treat the woman you love to the creme de la creme in Mother's Day gifts. But hurry up while the offers still stand!
With Mother’s Day less than a week away, graduations looming and summer wedding season just around the corner, we’ve got a gift list that’s growing by the minute – and we’re pretty sure we aren’t the only ones. And while we’d like to summon up the perfect gift idea for every single occasion, sometimes we need a little help in the inspiration department. Below, the go-to shops we hit up whenever we need a special something for a special someone:
Lavish: With shelves carrying a diverse array of girlish delights ranging from James Jeans to J. Mendocino ceramics to children’s books and apparel, this Hayes Valley shop is an ideal place to find a gift for mom, whether she’s new to the game or a seasoned pro.
