A Mother’s Day
Want to make sure this Mother’s Day is one that mom will never forget? Treat her to an amazing experience, courtesy of The Shops at Columbus Circle, a place where memories are made.
Make mom feel beautiful with one of the special beauty services at Sephora, which range from a 30-minute hydrating facial to a 45-minute makeover. And shhh: They’re free with a purchase. We think mom will love the Personal One-on-One, an indulgent full-face custom makeover paired with a personal shopping experience. All you need to do is buy mom $125 of beauty booty or get her a gift certificate and let her shop to her heart’s content.
Mom wants to feel beautiful, too, and there’s no better way to achieve this than with a series of personal training sessions at Equinox (price upon request). By partnering with her own trainer and taking part in top-notch fitness classes, she’ll break down any barriers that were keeping her from meeting her fitness goals — and get in shape, just in time for summer.
Does mom love to cook? Book “Giada’s Italy,” a class at Williams-Sonoma: The next session will be held the week after Mothers’s Day on Sunday, May 20 ($30 per person). It’s inspired by none other than cookbook author and TV show host Giada De Laurentiis. Mom will learn to make modern Italian recipes, from a pasta sauce to lemon ricotta cookies. Let’s just say this one might be a gift for the whole family.
Of course, there’s nothing like treating mom to a special Mother’s Day brunch. At Porter House Bar & Grill, indulge her with the three-course Park View Lunch ($35 a person), where she can choose from dishes like a petit filet mignon and a truffled risotto. At Landmarc, she’ll won’t be able to resist the signature pain perdu and a peach-nectar bellini. And at Bouchon Bakery Café, they’ll be rolling out some surprise treats (priced a la carte) at a special Mother’s Day brunch.
Is mom more of a night owl? She will love an evening of jazz with the smooth tunes of Duke Ellington performed by the Juilliard Jazz Orchestra at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. There are performances at 7:30 and 9:30 ($35 a person), and you can also book the special Mother’s Day three-course prix fixe menu ($48 a person), which comes with a complimentary glass of champagne. It’ll be a day — and a night — she will treasure forever.
