How to Celebrate Mother's Day in Union Square
Gift Ideas, Sweet Treats, and Brunch Reservations for the Perfect Mother's Day
Celebrate the women in your life this Mother's Day the way you know best: by showing them you care. For everything else, stop by Union Square's best gift spots and restaurants to help craft her special day.
If you can’t be physically be with your mom, we recommend you stop by Paper Source (75 Fifth Avenue). They have a gorgeous selection of cards to send with their special mother’s day gift packs. (We like the Mother’s Day Office Bundle, paired with the “I am Strong because a Strong Woman Raised Me” card. We think it’s #fierce.)
Come get crafty with us! Tomorrow from 11AM - 4PM, all Paper Source locations will be hosting a FREE DIY Mother's Day card event. Share your creations using #PSThanksMom for the chance to win a $50 Paper Source gift card! 🌸🌸 • • • #atPS #PaperSource #MothersDay #Crafternoon #DIY #Cardmaking #Handmade #MothersDayGifts
Speaking of Strong Women, we know that moms often do it all and more. That’s why we think it’s extra special that the Red Door Spa (200 Park Avenue South) is offering exclusive Mother's Day spa packages. Make it a mother/daughter (or daughter-in-law, or son!) day – when you buy her a gift card you can get one for yourself too, worth up to $100.
Sometimes the classics are the best way to go. Nothing says Mother's Day like a glorious flower arrangement. Starbright Floral (140 West 26th Street) has you covered. What's your mom's favorite flower? We have a weakness for peonies ourselves.
For the mom who loves her sweets, pick up Baked by Melissa cupcakes (7 East 14th Street) in a "Super Mom" or a "Love You Bunches" bundle, or create your own for the perfect combo.
If you’re lucky enough to have your woman of honor in town, then spend some time with her and take her out to eat!
- Make a reservation at Rosa Mexicano (9 East 18th Street) for their special Mother's Day menu.
- The new Union Square Cafe location (101 East 19th Street) is always a favorite with Moms (and everyone else!).
- Try out Gotham Bar & Grill (12 East 12th Street) for their special Mother's Day Prix Fixe Brunch.
“It has a combination of energy and well-honed familiarity that’s rare in Manhattan. It’s rare anywhere, and it lifts this restaurant above fashion, to a plateau that it occupies all by itself.” Thank you Pete Wells and The New York Times for the 3 star review, recognizing the déjà vu and the new! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Link in our bio to read the full review.
