Mother's Day is May 8th this year, so don't forget to remember the special mothers in your life this year- whether it's your mom, wife, daughter, sister or friend. If you're looking for ideas for breakfast in bed, flowers, a spa day, a family outing or all of the above, you can find everything you need close by.

If you feel like the perfect gift this year would be a little break from family time, look through our "Spa Guide" for a local first-class pampering. But if you think Mom would rather enjoy a family activity to celebrate the holiday, go big with a splashy Mother's Day cruise (with food and dancing) on the Hudson.

For a more intimate gathering at home, consider throwing her a cocktail party with cheese, drinks and dessert. For wine-loving families, many New Jersey wineries participate in the Mother's Day Wine Trail Weekend which includes visits to different vineyards.
