Mother's Day

A Guide to Making Mother’s Day 2020 Special

Presented By

This year, celebrating Mom will look different. Shopping for gifts is an online endeavor. Brunch reservations aren’t in the cards. Family gatherings aren’t advisable. So how do we honor the exceptional women in our lives when we can hardly leave our homes?

Fret not, readers. There are myriad ways to shower moms with love this year.

Brighten her home with a pretty piece of décor from a Dallas shop. Help her unwind with high-end products from local spas. Serve brunch at home with locally-sourced pastries and DIY pizzas. Send her a bouquet or gift basket if you can’t see her in person. You’ll find it all in the guide below. Happy shopping!

Until she can visit a spa in person, Milk + Honey’s signature bath soak is the next best thing. The lavender and chamomile scent makes it a lovely nighttime indulgence.
