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.

Check out our "Shop Local" guide for the best places to find jewelry, flowers, home decor, small gifts or antiques. If you feel like a better gift this year would be a break from family time, look through our "Spa Guide" for a local first-class pampering.

If you think Mom would enjoy a family activity to celebrate the holiday, you can go big with a splashy Mother’s Day cruise (with food and dancing) on the Hudson. For a special meal, look for the perfect restaurant among the winners of our Reader’s Choice Awards. If she’s more into intimate gatherings 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.
