Mother's Day is May 8 and that means it's time to treat mom to a special meal, a gift or both. Here are some ideas for what to do this Mother's Day around South Bend and Mishawaka.
Take Mom Out for a Meal
What mom wants to cook for Mother's Day? Answer: not many. If you're looking for Mother's Day options, start by browsing through The Bend's best restaurants. Make sure to call ahead to find out about restaurant's plans for the holiday.
Buy Some Sweet Treats
Candy is never a bad gift. Whether it's some chocolates are hard candy, The Bend is home to a couple of local places with outsized reputations in the confectionary world — South Bend Chocolate Co. and Claeys Candy.
South Bend Chocolate's store in downtown is a great spot to grab something sweet for a gift. You can find Claeys Candy at stores and shops around the area.
Jewelry and clothes — how can you go wrong? If you're in the market for those, shop local at our array of boutiques. Browse the collections at Satori Boutique in Granger, Inspire Me! in South Bend or IN Rug Co. Studio and Gift Shop in Mishawaka online for some ideas.
The South Bend Farmers Market is another place for unique gifts, flowers and fresh food options.
Explore the Outdoors
Active moms aren't content with a gift — they want to head outside for hikes, biking some trails or maybe even a little golf.
Pick Up a Bouquet of Flowers
There's no need to wander out to the woods and pick your own bouquet (in fact, we definitely DO NOT recommend this strategy). Instead you can reach out to local florists.
Does mom need some time set aside to relax and unwind? Woodhouse Spa in Granger and Therapeutic Indulgence in South Bend are a couple great options for spa packages.
