Mothers are the glue that hold things together and they deserve to be showered with love all year round — but there’s no denying they deserve it a little bit more on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day isn’t just for biological mothers. Whether you’re a stepmom, a mother figure who makes a meaningful impact on those around her, or a close friend to those with kids, mothers take on many different roles. The ingenuity and out-of-the-box thinking that it takes to be a successful work-at-home parent, to support a child’s independence, and the strength it takes to comfort and love on children as they grow is truly a gift. Mothers are caregivers, workers, and role models. They build successful careers both inside and outside of the home, spend time with family, and give back to the community.
Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the roles that mothers play in a community. There are many different ways that you can honor the role of the mothers in your life – and cards and store-bought gift cards are just the tip of the iceberg. If you want to spoil your mother, or an important mother to you, here are a few Carlsbad experiences to honor the special women in your life:
The Flower Fields are a special event, regardless of when you visit. Since they are only open for three months out of the year, it is especially significant that the last day that they are open falls on Mother’s Day.
Historically, flowers are a very popular gift for mothers on Mother’s Day. The Flower Fields take the gift of flowers to the next level – offering colorful blooms for as far as the eye can see. On the last day of the season, the Flower Fields will be featuring performances by the Rancho Buena Vista High School’s Ballet Folklorico. The dancers will be on stage all day, and the colorful show is included with the cost of admission.
If you were already planning on getting your mother flowers this holiday, consider buying a ticket to the Flower Fields for an unforgettable experience that your mom will remember for years.
For moms that like it all, the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa is this year’s one stop shop for good food, activities, and exercise all wrapped into one.

In the morning, guests can visit the Garden Pool to participate in a Mother’s Day Sound Bath and Meditation Yoga session. Help your mom achieve complete wellness with deepened stretches and early morning exercise. Shortly after, there will be a Mother’s Day Bouquet Arranging session where you can customize a floral bouquet and a card for mom before heading off to the Spa to take part in one of the five different Mother’s Day Spa Specials the resort is hosting.

Some of life’s most cherished moments happen around a dining room table. Oftentimes, family bonding and a mother’s care revolve around the gift of food and the routine of eating together. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to remove the responsibility of food prep from your mom’s plate and spoil her with a menu that will fill her stomach and her soul.
