In case you forgot, Mother’s day is on May 10th this year. Now more than ever mothers deserve our appreciation whether they are working on the front lines or juggling working from home while also home schooling and being the nightly chef. Mothers are always amazing but lets be sure to make it extra special this year and show our love in some special ways. We have put together some ideas on how to make her Mother’s Day not only special but that remind her of her favorite place utilizing locally sourced gifts and components. Here’s to a Sun Valley Mother’s Day!
This one is great for all ages as kids get to have a fun project and take pride in creating something with a meaningful message. It is also great for young adults to tap back in to that creative side and give something more than a standard store-bought card. The possibilities for crafts are endless and can range from a Sun Valley themed handcrafted piece of art to an arrangement of succulents. When making some homemade crafts remember to always clean up and put things back where they came from. The last thing you want to do is gift your mother with more work. While you’re at it why not clean a few extra things and maybe organize that cluttered craft closet.
Here are a few local spots that you can grab supplies:
Whether it is an at home pampering or a gift card to her favor spa every mother deserves a spa day. Bath bombs and a massage sound pretty nice but remember the best part of a spa is the peace and quiet so remember to stay quiet during the at home spa experience.

A spa gift card is also a great gift cause she can cash it in whenever she really needs an escape.
