With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking of the perfect way to show your Mom just how treasured she is. Busy schedules and missed phone calls get the best of all of us, but it’s not too late! Instead of buying another cliché gift, (what is this, the third year in a row?) #HipNJ has come to the rescue and put together the ultimate Mother’s Day activity list:
Dig for Diamonds!
Meadowlands Racetrack has a slew of M-Day activities planned for the weekend (including Derby Day), but nothing tops their annual Diamond Dig! Ten lucky moms have the chance to dig for some gorgeous diamond jewelry in the Winner’s Circle. Click here for more information!
Visit One of New Jersey’s Wineries!
This Sunday, Alba’s Vineyard is hosting their annual Mother’s Day Festival. Spoil Mom with an afternoon at New Jersey’s largest estate vineyard overlooking the scenic Musconetcong Valley. Enjoy the day with family and friends treating mom to a special event filled with a wine tasting, cellar tour, food for purchase, and live music. Learn more at: AlbaVineyard.com
Take a Boat Ride on the Hudson!
Celebrate Mom and treat her to a special day on the water aboard Spirit Cruises. With a delicious buffet, interactive DJ entertainment, dancing and incredible views of the NYC skyline, this will be a Mother’s Day she’ll always remember. For more information: SpiritCruises.com
Paint and Sip!
This new craze is spreading fast, and #HipNJ understands why. Visit your local Pinot’s Palette to discover a new way to unwind and experience the perfect pairing. Enjoy your favorite beverage (or not) and leave with a hand painted masterpiece that’s definitely fridge worthy! Sign up here: PinotsPalette.com
Treat Her to a Day of Pampering!
While this is an age-old mother-daughter activity, it still resonates. Help mom relax and spend the day with her at José Eber Salon in Millburn, where numerous Mother’s Day specials will be running this weekend. Book an appointment: JoseEberNJ.com
Take in a Show!
Let Mama get her groove on at Prudential Center in Newark! They are hosting the first ever “WBLS’ A Mother’s Day Celebration” featuring Maze, Kenny Lattimore, the legendary Toni Braxton and more! Click here to purchase tickets.
