At Home Spa
Walking around the Pier Village condos for sale, you are sure to see lots of hardworking mothers and grandmothers. They are pretty much the modern day superheroes that do it all.

What is a better break from hard work than an indulgent day at the spa?
Since you can’t go out to the Spa, bring it home!

Breakfast in Bed
This may be a cliché Mother’s Day gift, but that’s because it’s so much fun! Let mom sleep in and then serve her breakfast in bed—or on the patio with a view of the sea, if she prefers! The point is that she is served her favorite breakfast, while still in her pajamas or morning robe. Pancakes or waffles are always a treat—or maybe a frittata, or smoked salmon bagel for a savory alternative, with a smoothie on the side.
Crafting options are endless depending on what your mom is into! Regardless of specific craft hobbies, like crocheting or embroidery, what mom doesn’t love a good photo scrap book?! You can prepare a scrap-booking experience by purchasing a nice photo album and glue, printing out a bunch of your favorite family photos. Add in some decorative additions like ribbon, stickers, and stamps. Make sure to have some nice markers on hand for captions.
Games—be they board games, word games or charades—are one of the most bonding home experiences out there. Friendly competition, silly play, and logic-based strategy are all components that make different types of games fun. Provide snacks and beverages. Then, just lay back and enjoy the fun of the game: laughter, play, competition, and all!

Or consider taking a retro trip to the 60s and 70’s and come prepared with a fondue kit. Cheese fondue, bouillon based meats and veggies, and chocolate fondue for the ultimate home dining experience!
Don’t forget to set the scene with candle light and music. Let mom sit back and enjoy relaxing (perhaps in the tub??) while the rest of the family pulls together to create a perfect at home-dining experience. And don’t let her clean up afterward, either!
