Mother’s Day in Philadelphia – Gift Ideas You Haven’t Thought Of

Mother’s Day is coming on the second Sunday in May… just around the corner. Have you made any plans yet to pamper Mom on her extra special day this year?  Sure, you can go with the old tried-and-true favorites such as candy, flowers, dinner…

Or, will this be the year you do something different, to REALLY blow her away with an extra-special Mother’s Day celebration just to let her know how wonderful and appreciated she truly is? This year, do something so unexpected, so magnificent that Mom will be off-the-charts amazed at how you came up with such a fabulous idea, (that NO one else thought of!).

If you live in the Philadelphia area, here are some out-of-the-(chocolate)box ideas to give Mom a day she’ll never forget.

Mother’s Day in Philadelphia — Treat Mom to the Best!

1. Sumptuous Sweets

Okay, so this goes in the Mother’s Day ‘candy’ category. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fully appreciated, OR that you can’t take it over the top this year! Instead of the standard heart-shaped box of miscellaneous chocolates, how about an all-out Philadelphia Chocolate Tour?

Known as “the Sweetest Tour in Town”, Mom can bring along family and friends, (that means you get to go, too!), to enjoy a guided walking and tasting tour of unique Philadelphia chocolate shops and cafes on a 2.5-hour private or public Philadelphia Chocolate Tour. There are 3 tour routes to choose from:

  • Center City / Rittenhouse Route
  • Old City Route
  • Reading Terminal Market Route

These tours sell out pretty quickly though, so make reservations as early as possible if you plan to surprise Mom with this one. Call 215-833-0044 or visit the Philadelphia Chocolate Tour website for more information.

2. Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

That’s right – another old standard… but with a new twist. Instead of the same-old/same-old bouquet of nondescript flowers for Mother’s day, try this instead: Take a tour of the gardens at Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion in Philadelphia.

The mansion gardens, designed by nationally renowned landscape architect Reed Engle, were created to represent two time periods during the Victorian era:

  • The Scott Garden – Inspired by Frank Scott’s book “Art of Beautifying Suburban Grounds”, 1870.
  • The Downing Garden – based on the philosophy and designs of Andrew Jackson Downing’s book “The Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening”, 1841.

Mom will be immersed in the glorious aroma and floral splendor that surrounds her in these lush Victorian gardens. And if she’s a camera buff, as many Moms tend to be, she’ll never get enough of the photo opportunities in such a brilliant setting. (Be prepared to “say cheese” a LOT!)

Instead of taking flowers to Mom, take Mom to the flowers for Mother’s Day in Philadelphia… she’ll feel like a queen! For information, call 215-438-1861 or visit the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion website.

3. Delightful, Delectable Dinner

Just because we don’t recommend the typical Mother’s Day gift ideas, doesn’t mean Mom doesn’t still love them! But we’re stepping it up a notch. Sure, Mom has to eat, and a fine dinner out is always a nice way to show her you care… but does it have to be BORING? No way!

So here’s how to give Mom the best of both worlds this year: a delightful Mother’s Day Dinner cruise on the sparkling waters of Philadelphia, departing from Penn’s Landing. This three-hour cruise includes:

  • All-you-can-eat buffet dinner
  • Live entertainment, a DJ and dancing
  • Stroll under the stars
  • Beautiful view of Philadelphia’s twinkling lights

For more information, visit the Philadelphia Mother’s Day Dinner Cruise website.

4. Icing on the Mother’s Day Cake

If you want Mother’s Day in Philadelphia to be especially memorable and simply over-the-top awesome for Mom, it may not even matter where you take her on her special day… as much as HOW you get her to where she wants to go. Give Mother’s Day that extra-special finishing touch by picking her up in an ultra-luxurious chauffeured Philadelphia limousine, and she’ll have no doubt how much you care about celebrating her special day.

Our Philadelphia Limousine Service has been celebrating Moms in style since 1993; we know all the most beautiful locations in Philadelphia, and the best ways to get there hassle-free, so Mom can feel like royalty for a day. But make reservations early, because a Mother’s Day gift idea so fabulous is sure to be popular with Philadelphia’s sons and daughters… so reserve a limousine ride for YOUR Mom before they’re all booked up!

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable.
