A Getaway Inspired Mother's Day!

Posted: 05/08/20

While some Mother’s Day gift ideas may be a no-go this year, there are still many many ways we can show our lovely mamas how much we appreciate them and all they do for us! We’ve got some Big Bear inspired ideas and awesome alternatives to popular gifts for Mother’s Day this Sunday.

Getaway Spa Day

Who says mom can’t still enjoy a spa day this Mother's Day? Make your home feel like a getaway and pamper mom with soothing bubble bath, scented candles, hot tea - or maybe wine - and a home manicure or pedicure.

- Mountain Witch Tea Company has an array of homemade goodies like handcrafted soaps and candles. Stop in on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM - 3 PM to supply Mom's home spa this weekend! Call 909-366-0580 to arrange pick ups.

- A home mani-pedi is a dream come true for many moms, but if you're not a skilled artist, perhaps and soothing foot rub is just the ticket!

- Perhaps the final ingredient to the perfect home spa day is a glass of wine to enjoy in total relaxation. Barrel 33 is open daily until 6 PM for pick ups - did we mention they're offering To-Go Mimosa Kits?

A Night In at the Movies

A night at the movies is just as exciting at home in the living room! Throw some popcorn in the microwave, pour Mom's favorite candy in a bowl, and sit down to watch an old classic filmed right here in Big Bear Lake!

- Make sure Mom's spot on the couch is extra comfy for Mother's Day. Make sure she can put her feet up and has all the best snacks within reach!

- Did you know Big Bear Lake was a popular backdrop for many Hollywood classic - and some modern day - films? The perfect evening might call for a screening of Gone with the Wind, War Games, Hot Tub Time Machine, The Parent Trap, and many more!

- Make a pit stop at one of Big Bear's candy stores (list of open businesses) to stock up on Mom's favorite goodies or order Mother's Day pastries from Sister My Sister Bake Shop this weekend.
