Mother’s Day Inspiration

Face it, dads, the kids are not going to be bringing home handmade Mother’s Day cards from school this year. So, this is your chance to step up and make mom’s day special, and Team Charleston wants to help.

The Card(s)

Who says you can’t be an arts teacher, dad? Online videos showing kids how to make cards and other pieces of art for mom are just a click away. Charleston’s Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences is using their Facebook page to show children how to create (and learn) during this stay-at-home period. Check out their videos on Water Color Resist Painting, Paper Marbling, and Home Stamp Making.

The Gift(s)

Sorry, moms, but a girls’ trip without the kids and husbands is not going to happen this year. What does mom want or need the most?  If she’s is like us, she needs a trip to the salon as soon as it opens. What salon services does she love? Hair, nails, massage? Let her choose with a gift card from a Charleston-area salon. Explore our personal services listings and contact the one of your choice about purchasing online gift cards and certificates.

Boutiques like Charlie are offering custom-designed Mother’s Day bags. Choose from a variety of home goods, accessories, clothing and gift cards. Local delivery, free shipping and curbside pickup are available. Visit Charlie’s website or Facebook page to get started shopping.

The Food

Help the kids cook up something special for mom. Uncork & Create has posted more than 20 videos to its Facebook page during this corona crisis. In addition to learning how to draw Baby Groot and Baby Yoda, the art store included videos on making chocolate chip cookies, banana chocolate chip muffins and taco pizza.

Take out is an awesome option, especially when you have great local restaurants like we do in the Charleston area. Bricks & Barrels is offering a Mother’s Day meal featuring homemade stuffed pasta shells. The package includes salad, garlic bread and brownies. Yum! Visit the Bricks & Barrels Facebook page for order info. Add a bottle of wine to make mom really happy!
