Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10 and of course, you want to treat your Mom! Even though things might look a little different this year, you can still say thank you in lots of ways, from flowers to chocolates or even take-out from one of White Rock’s restaurants, which we definitely recommend. And most importantly, even though we’re spending a lot of time together these days, Mom just wants to spend quality time with you. Plan a walk around the neighbourhood to check out the cherry trees, head to the beach (yes, it’s still open … the pier & promenade remain closed), and check out these White Rock shops to help pick out the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
