This year, hold mom close as she’s always held you and say “thank you” with shopping, art, delicious treats, and special handmade gifts. If you’re racking your brain trying to figure out a fun and unique way to spend the day together, we’re full of fun ideas:
Experience the Arts
No need to pay for a museum visit. Go for an art stroll and admire more than 20 museum-caliber pieces within the Arts Aventura Mall collection! Start in the outdoor courtyard with the iconic Aventura Slide Tower by Carsten Höller, admire the tranquil yet playful Gorillas in the Mist fountain by The Haas Brothers, and don’t miss the opportunity to take a heartfelt photo in front of Robert Indiana’s LOVE Sculpture. Other pieces that can’t be missed are “ARROWS AND FLOWER” by legendary artists Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh and Nate Dee’s “Cherish Home” mural – a must for Floridians and Florida lovers alike. Visit www.aventuramall.com/arts/ for our full list of pieces and some background on their creators.
Treat Mom to Customized Macarons
Transport your leading lady to the streets of Paris with Ladurée’s delectable famous macarons. Not only is Ladurée a dreamy, Instagram-worthy spot with an authentic French flair, but its macarons are simply divine. You can even order and pick up a customized box as a sweet surprise mom won’t soon forget. Personalize the pastries with a monogram or special Mother’s Day message.
Shop Haute Handbags
Once you’ve explored and snapped photos with the art, stop in center court and visit the mall’s limited-time Coach pop-up! Not only will you be able to shop their signature handbags (we hear Jennifer Lopez is a fan…), but you and mom can also pose for a professional photo with Coach’s built-in photo opp. Make it a Mother’s Day you two will never forget with a picture and a Mother’s Day frame to match.
End the Day with a Bouquet (and Local Goodies!)
Put a smile on mom’s face by building a bouquet or succulent garden with some help from the Aventura Market’s flower vendors such as Emotion Growers and Encantos Floral Design. With her bundle of flowers in hand, you two can browse a variety of offerings at the Aventura Farmers Market. From homemade empanadas to handcrafted jewelry, you and your mom are sure to fall in love with something new while supporting local creators.
