At one time, Mother's Day meant making mom breakfast in bed and giving her a handmade card or maybe buying her flowers. Nowadays, there are many ways to wow mom. No matter what your mom likes, here are 5 ideas for celebrating your mother in and around Boston this Mother's Day.


Give Her a Night Out

Who said her special day has to happen during the daytime or even include the kids? If mom craves a night out, give her an evening celebration. Start with dinner at a Boston restaurant. Then she and her friends can head out for more fun. Maybe she'd enjoy a live music show at the music bar, Howl at the Moon, or a comedy show at The Wilbur.

Take Her Somewhere Beautiful

If mom enjoys nature's beauty, get tickets to The Butterfly Place in Westford, MA. It's an indoor garden filled with butterflies flying all around you. Moms and kids of all ages can enjoy this spectacular place.


Enjoy a Cultural Experience

If culture is your mom's thing, take her to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. You can stroll the gardens, take in the awe-inspiring artwork, or get tickets to the Sunday concert series.

Satisfy Her Sweet Tooth

Does your mom have a sweet tooth? Consider the Boston Chocolate School. It offers a Truffle Making Workshop and a Chocolate 101 class on Saturdays. Or you could arrange a chocolate tour through Boston for your family. Sweet!


Give Her a Memorable Meal with the Whole Family at Venezia
