Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12th and of course you want to treat your Mom! You can say thank you in lots of ways, from flowers, to chocolates or even a tasty lunch out at one of White Rock’s restaurants, which we definitely recommend. But really, Mom just wants to spend quality time with you. The big question is, “How?” If you’re like us and you thrive on spontaneity, we’ve brainstormed a few Mother’s Day suggestions to help you out this weekend!

Enjoy Brunch Together
Treat your mom to a fabulous meal out. Many of White Rock’s restaurants have special Mother’s Day brunches and lunches planned, and we’ve listed a few below. But if you’ve left it too late for a reservation, or if reservations aren’t really your style, there are lots of choices for a tasty meal that Mom will love.

Head to the Farmers Market
Maybe your Mom is more the picnic-type? Stop by the White Rock Farmer’s Market for a fun morning choosing from fresh produce, pastries and other unique food items, and then head to a park or the beach for the perfect Mother’s Day picnic.

Get out on the water
If Mom is a little, or a lot, outdoorsy, she’ll love to go on a whale watching tour, or for a boat tour around Semiahmoo Bay, with White Rock Sea Tours. Or maybe a relaxing day at the beach with her favourite people is the way to go. The forecast this Mother’s Day is calling for perfect beach-weather.

Book her a massage (or pick up a gift card)
We’re pretty sure Mom will love that you thought to set her up with an afternoon of pampering at the Natural Oasis Day Spa!

Visit the Museum
White Rock is home to the charming White Rock Museum & Archives. The museum is located in a historic train station on the waterfront and is a wonderful way to spend a little time learning about our community’s history and railway roots. The current exhibit is a fascinating look at how White Rock has celebrated May Day.

Pick out a gift
Luckily, White Rock is home to some of the best boutiques and gift stores around, making it the perfect one-stop spot to scoop up the perfect gift to say thank you to Mom.
