Fun Mother's Day Ideas: Spend Quality Time with Mom at Welk
Giving the perfect Mother's Day presents can be challenging. While you want to give something that shows the mom in your life just how special she is, you should remember that physical gifts aren’t the only option. When it comes to fun Mother's Day ideas, spending quality time with her can tell her how much you appreciate her. And what better way to express how much you care than taking her on a perfect escape away from the hustle and bustle of her daily routine?
The Gift Of Sunshine
Spending a fun Mother's Day weekend in a sunny location can help the mom in your life unwind and enjoy the season. San Diego and Palm Springs offer beautiful climates throughout the year. When you stay at Welk Resorts San Diego or Desert Oasis by Welk Resorts, you can have a unique experience whether you stay on the grounds or head to some of the city's major attractions. If it’s just a quiet, small getaway for the two of you, it’s easy to lounge by the pool and enjoy the Southern California warmth. For more mountainous retreats, treat mom with a trip up to Northstar Lodge and One Village Place by Welk Resorts. Enjoy the fresh Tahoe breezes with relaxing days by the lake and plenty of scenic hiking trails.
If you feel like going somewhere a little more exotic, consider heading south of the border. Sirena del Mar by Welk Resorts is nestled on seven acres of lush property along the coast of the Sea of Cortez. Mom can let go of the stress of her multi-tasking life by relaxing on the beach in a private cove, swinging in a hammock from her balcony while the waves crash nearby, or soaking in one of the infinity pools and grabbing a drink from the swim-up bar.
Let Someone Else Do The Cooking
Speaking of food, does mom need a break from making meals? Take her out to an elegant brunch or dinner, and tantalize her taste buds. The Estrella Restaurante at the Welk Resorts Cabo location offers Mexican classics as well as Baja-inspired specialty dishes. The wood-fired oven delivers unique flavor to pizzas, steaks, and lobster. If you’re visiting Desert Oasis, there are a number of great, high-end restaurants for an elegant night out that mom is sure to enjoy. You can read more about our favorites here.
One of the best ways to show you care, is to take time and cook a special meal just for mom. Our San Diego team makes it easy for you to pull out all the stops while on vacation with Villa Chef. With these great kits, we provide all the ingredients you need to cook a gourmet meal in your own villa. All you have to do is pick up your pre-ordered kit and follow the instructions for a delicious meal she’s sure to remember.
Doing the same old thing in your hometown can get monotonous. Even a quick getaway can really make mom feel special and create new memories of a fun Mother's Day that will last. If she’s a keen golfer, you can enjoy a couple rounds of golf on the manicured, premier greens at Welk Resorts San Diego and Desert Oasis. You can also relax with a dive-in, poolside movie at Desert Oasis, a private screening of your favorite flick in the media theater at Northstar Lodge, or take in a live show at our Welk Resort Theatre in Branson.
Our INSPIRED For You team has also come up with a number of activities and adventures you can enjoy together, escaping from everyday life. If mom is looking for a foodie experience, enjoy the craft beer tasting, Mexican cooking classes, smores nights, and mixology lessons. Loosen up with sunrise yoga, salsa dancing, and aqua golf. Explore local scenery, history, and culture with planned outings. You can also enjoy modern takes on classic games like poolside scrabble and margarita bingo. No matter the activities that you enjoy together, each of our locations has created the innovative ways you need to treat mom and enjoy your time together. Each resort offers different activities, so plan ahead to pick the best itinerary for your getaway.
Pamper Her at the Spa
Many moms devote so much time to their families that they rarely get to indulge. A spa day may be just what the mother in your life needs.
The Elevate Day Spa in San Diego offers a unique menu of services. Putting your feet up takes on a whole new spin with flotation therapy. A ritual massage that touches on acupressure points and incorporates aromatherapy promotes complete relaxation. The nail services are fantastic and go beyond a simple paint job. You'll get a massage with luxurious beauty products, and you can opt to sip a glass of champagne while you close your eyes and unwind.
At Sirena Del Mar, the spa treatments range from tranquil to exotic. Get a Mexican stone massage to relieve tension in tight muscles, or opt for a reflexology massage to promote blood flow and enhance your energy. You can also snag some alone time with your spouse with a couple's massage by the sea.
