Mother’s Day Ideas For Moms In Texarkana
With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, May 12, you may be looking for a great way to make your mama feel extra special. Here are some of our favorite spots in Texarkana for unique gifts, specialty items, delicious eats, and signature services that are sure to please the woman who worked so hard to raise you!
Red Road Winery
If your mother loves a little vino now and then, she will love a trip to Red Road Winery at Summerhill Square. When she steps inside this gorgeous wine tasting room with its leather chairs, burnished wood tables and rows of shiny wine bottles, she will know that she is in for a special experience.
Owners Merrill Grove, Terry Willett and Fay J. Durrant invite you to enjoy one of the Texas wines they sell from 47 vintners. You can purchase wine by the glass, bottle or case. If you decide to send Mom home with a bottle, you’ll know that it is extra special, not just because of how great it tastes, but because Merrill creates unique artwork for each bottle.
If you want to turn this wine tasting affair into a full blown food and wine experience, the staff encourages you to bring your favorite food to eat on the premises at one of their comfortable tables. This will create a special moment mom will always remember.
If you didn’t bring something to sink your teeth into, don’t worry. The winery also promises to feature tapas, cheeses, dipping sauces and more in coming weeks. As an added bonus, tell the staff you heard about Red Road Winery from Townsquare Media and Kicker 102.5 FM and you’ll receive 10 percent off your purchase!
Red Road Winery is open Monday through Wednesday between 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Thursday through Saturday between 10 a.m. – 11 p.m., and on Sundays from 1 – 7 p.m. If you would like to contact the winery, you may follow them on Facebook, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store at (903) 792-WINE.
Pop Pop Shoppe
If your mother is a teetotaler, she may prefer something crunchy and delicious from the Pop Pop Shoppe located at 2011 Mall Drive next to Bryce’s Cafeteria. Open since 2004, the store is renowned for their wide assortment of flavored gourmet popcorn.
Perhaps Mom is someone that craves savory flavors. Then she might like spicy Cajun, decadent Loaded Potato, traditional Ranch or one of the store’s many other unsweetened flavors.
But if she likes something sweet, she will probably go for everyone’s favorite Caramel Corn (with or without pecans or peanuts), or more fruity flavors including cherry, strawberry, blueberry or grape.
Kimberly Busby, who runs the store, says she can also put together gift tins for the moms in your life filled with assorted popcorn flavors and can even pack in rich homemade fudge and pretzels. And if you want to make your mom extra happy? “Sometimes clients bring in jewelry for me to attach to the baskets and tins,” Busby says. “I’m always happy to do that too!”
The Pop Pop Shoppe is open Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. To contact the store, follow them on Facebook or call (903) 793-0209 to place your order!
Does your mother love flowers? Or perhaps she loves to cook using fresh vegetables and herbs. Then you need look no further than the North Forty, located at 6328 Richmond Road, just 2 1/2 miles north of I-30.
This phenomenal store features a great variety of plants, including her favorite flowering annuals and perennials, hothouse vegetables and delicious herbs, all grown locally. You can purchase them by the flat or individually.
Also, the North Forty specializes in baskets and will create custom hanging arrangements for you to give to your mother. But if your mom has a favorite pot or urn that she likes to grow her plants in, simply bring it to the staff and they will use your container to create a magnificent potted arrangement that will keep your mom smiling all season long!
Follow the North Forty on Facebook, or call them at (903) 832-7511 for more details. Live plants are the gifts that keep on giving, and the helpful staff will even give you tips on how to maintain your purchase, just in case your mom’s thumb isn’t quite as green as it could be.
The Sanctuary Medical Spa
Perhaps the moms in your life are counting calories or they aren’t really into plants, flowers and cooking. But they undoubtedly do work hard, whether they are career women or homemakers. Every madre needs the occasional luxury and deluxe pampering services that only a place like The Sanctuary can provide.
Located at 3502 Richmond Road, the Sanctuary offers everything from traditional spa services like manicures, pedicures, waxes and facials to Botox, laser hair removal, chemical peels and makeup artistry to help your mom freshen up her personal style.
They also have a great gift shop packed full of amazing skin treatment products like Obagi, SkinMedica, Youngblood Cosmetics, Topix and more. If you’re not sure what to get mom, then purchase her a gift certificate and she can schedule an appointment to get the treatment of her choice. And best of all, the Sanctuary will also feature great Mother’s Day specials that will please her and your pocketbook.
The Sanctuary is open Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. You may follow them on Facebook, visit their website or call them at (903) 334-8661 to find out more or to schedule an appointment. And if mom is craving more mother/daughter time, maybe a spa day for the two of you is in order.
