Do Something Nice for Your Mama
Mother's Day is just around the corner (you're welcome). From sweets to shopping to a stellar meal, we've got some ideas for how you can thank mom for, well, your existence.
If mom has a sweet tooth, there's no shortage of treats in Gwinnett.
The Chocolaterie in downtown Duluth is serving up beautiful, handmade chocolate truffles in unimaginable flavors. They've also got fudge, ice cream and other desserts. Be sure to check out their cards and gifts too.
At Peterbrooke Chocolatier, you can grab mom some delicious chocolate-covered popcorn or hand dipped treats, like graham crackers and cat tails.
Whether you take mom shopping or pick up a present for her, there are several stops in Gwinnett where you can find unique gifts.
Personify Shop in Duluth is actually the brainchild of mother-daughter team, Maddie and Tammy. You'll find on-trend clothes and accessories and handmade items by talented artists.
If mom is into relaxing, pop into Buff City Soaps in Peachtree Corners to grab the best handmade bath bombs, soaps, and scrubbing salts.
Mom might adore having a nice piece of locally handmade jewelry to brag to her friends about. If that's the case, take her to pick out a special piece from Anna Balkan Jewelry. These handcrafted necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings are composed of the finest natural semi-precious gemstones and pearls from around the world.
If your mom is a Do-It-Yourselfer purchase a gift card that will let her get her hands a little dirty.
Help your mom bring out her inner Frida Kahlo. Purchase an art class at Hudgens Art Center. Options include watercolor, acrylics, drawing, ceramics and more. If she's far from Frida's talent but still wants to swing a paintbrush, plan an outing at Masterpiece Mixers or Painting with a Twist where you'll be lead step-by-step in creating your very own masterpiece.
If Joanna Gaines-esque projects are more of your mom's style, try AR Workshop in Lawrenceville where she can make wooden signs, trays or picture frames by hand.
If quality time with little ones is the goal try Eye Candy Art Studio in Duluth for ceramic goodies painted by you!
Take mom to weekend brunch at La Belle Vie in Suwanee. They've got fluffy omelets, crepes, sweet honey croissants and more. Be sure to make a reservation.
Mom might want something on the casual side, and if that's the case, Rico's World Kitchen in Buford is your stop. Be sure to try "Nett's Lumpia", Filipino-style eggrolls and the cakes that are made daily in-house.
