2021 Mother's Day 

Sunday, May 9

This Mother's Day there will probably be a lot more breakfasts-in-bed and fewer lavish brunches out, but there will still be spa pampering, garden walks and time with family. Check out Mother's Day specials and packages, some for right now and others for later, offered just for Mom by local businesses.

Here are some suggestions to brighten her day:

Cook up a favorite morning treat and bring a tray to her. Off The Waffle sells their amazing liege waffles frozen, so a simple but spectacular breakfast at home is easy. Heat up in the oven and top with fresh fruit or goat cheese and an egg from the farmers market. They have gluten-free waffles too!

Mother's Day Things to Do

Mother's Day is a popular day to visit local gardens and enjoy the rhododendrons, the cherry trees, roses and more so you may choose to walk on a different day when foot traffic will be less. Or walk in your neighborhood and enjoy the flowers in your neighbors' gardens.

The Willamette Valley's wine country is beautiful in spring, and there are miles of back country roads to cruise. Call ahead to local wineries to check their visiting protocols. Some wineries require reservations and all have limited occupancy. Enjoy a glass or bottle of wine on a patio overlooking the vineyards. Pair wine with visiting historic covered bridges or stopping by outstanding small town bakeries. There are many delightful road trips across the valley that Mom may enjoy!

Whether you draw a picture, write a note or craft some special treasure—handmade gifts are heartfelt treasures that are always loved.
