Mother's Day Pampering on Fifth

Mother’s Day Pampering on our own Fifth Ave

By Joanna Tallantire

The forecast is sunny and warm for this Mother's Sunday. Where else would you go with mom, than one of the numerous cafes and restaurants on 5th Ave for brunch. Or better still, drop her at one of the many great nail salons, the tattoo parlour or a spa, with a large latte of course, for some pampering and most importantly, peace and quiet. 

For the mum that wants to stay in bed; flowers, frothy coffee, gifts and breakfast can be collected or delivered all down 5th Ave from Dean to 18th. Whilst mom is lounging around, take the kids to the Old Stone House for a play and to visit the Sunday farmer’s market, to get lunch items.

If there is no time for any of this, get into one of the local stores before Sunday, there is so much to offer. Here is just a snippet of what I found:

Blooms on Fifth
Call them or pop into the store between 8th and 9th Streets. The team of florists will put together a beautiful bouquet to suit your budget, however big or small. Delivery everyday. Last minute orders are welcome.
431 5th Ave

Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store
Cards, gifts and giveaways at Annie’s. Annie was also featured in Time Out NY's "Ask the Expert" on Mother's Day gifts. For us Brits, she stocks cards that say "mum".
232 5th Ave

Brooklyn Industries
Buy a gift certificate or maybe just send mom in with a blank check. A Sale on Mother's Day is not to be missed.
206 5th Ave
Hiho Batik
Hiho has some unique gift items in stock specially for Mother’s Day. Bangles, bracelets and bags amongst other trinkets. Of course you can always take mom in and help her design her own T-Shirt too.
184 5th Ave

Zuzu’s Petals
374 5th Ave
Fonda, the owner of Zuzu's, told me that they have Peonies and Lilacs in stock, which are hard to come, because of the difficult winter. She also showed me their wonderful backyard full of plants. Go check it out. They are still delivering Saturday and Sunday, so it’s not to late!

 Elements Beauty Lounge
Special Mother's Day packages at Elements, which has a very calming atmosphere mom will love.
73 5th Ave

D'mai Urban Spa
"Send mom on vacation", that's a headline hard to refuse. Or alternatively pop into D'mai and get mom a gift certificate.
157 5th Ave

Pink Olive
Lots of options in Pink Olive for mom. Handmade decor and artwork amongst many gift ideas.
167 5th Ave

Enz's dresses are just amazing and unique; I have one! There are also gorgeous accessories like scarves, broaches and bags all with a fifties style. You can go mad and get mom a complete outfit!
