This Sunday, May 10th is Mother’s Day. These special women in our lives are dedicated to supporting and taking care of others, and they deserve to be recognized. During these rapidly changing times, many mothers are taking on new titles besides “Mom,” such as “Essential Worker” or “Homeschool Teacher.” Now more than ever, we have love, pride, and thanks for these incredible women.
Give Mom a gift card to her favorite local store, or a shop she’s been wanting to check out. This is a great way to support a small business that had to temporarily close its doors to customers. She can use the gift card now to shop online, or can save it and visit the store as soon as it reopens.
Give Mom a break from cooking by treating her to a delicious meal. Many of our local restaurants are offering take-out and delivery services when you call in your order. Things like curbside pickup are making this process even easier. (You might even get bonus points if you pick up her favorite sweet treat from a local bakery too). You can find a list of restaurant services throughout Frederick County here: http://www.discoverfrederickmd.com/restaurants.
Wine is always the answer. Give Mom a gift card to a local winery or get some local wine for her to try. A number of our wineries are offering discounts right now as well as special features like wine tasting kits or even virtual tastings. Check out our list of winery options here, as well as Frederick County breweries and distilleries, if that is more her style: http://www.homegrownfrederick.com/blog/frederick-county-wineries-breweries-distilleries-offering-to-go-sales.
We wish all mothers out there the happiest Mother’s Day. You are doing a great job and you are very much appreciated.
