Mother’s Day is May 12, but I’ve been stressing for months about what to get my mommy dearest. Since becoming a mom myself last year, I’ve developed a whole new level of respect for parents. I reflected on this just yesterday as I swept up a box of baking soda Baby Norah had dumped onto the kitchen floor.
Surely, moms deserve more than a macaroni necklace or a bouquet of gas station roses. Ditto for grandmas, aunts and other female role models.
Fortunately, Mainsail Beach Inn on Anna Maria Island makes it possible to treat your No. 1 lady to a proper Mother’s Day gift without having to borrow the money from her.
For the entire month of May, the beachfront resort is giving away a $250 American Express gift card for visitors who stay at least three nights between Sunday and Thursday. Rates start at $234 for a two-bedroom suite, so you can whip up breakfast in the kitchen while Mom relaxes on the private balcony.
Then grab that AmEx card and hit the town with your mom. I’m sure you can come up with ways to use the money, but just in case, here are some suggestions.
- Treat her to dinner.
- Take her shopping on Pine Avenue.
- Chauffeur her in style.
