Mother’s Day Downtown

May 8, 2023
Mother's Day Austin

Mothers can make the world go round. How do you treat the motherly figure when they deserve the world? Here are a few ideas of gifts to give or ways to spend time with your mom downtown. 

Bring Her to Brunch

Spend quality time with your mom and treat her to brunch this Mother’s Day at one of the many incredible places you can get brunch in downtown Austin. Check out our brunch blog here.

Take Her to a Concert

Take your mother to a special Mother’s Day jazz concert at Chateau Bellevue with the Juliana Silveira Trio at 5pm. Celebrate Mom and friends while you enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly and free parking all night. Get your tickets here. 

Send Her to the Spa

Send your mom to a much-deserved spa day. Whether it’s a mani-pedi at Lacquer because she would walk a thousand miles for you, a blowout at Drybar so you can get out of her hair for a while, a facial at milk + honey to help ease those worry lines you gave her, or a deep tissue massage at AustinDEEP for having your back, she will love it!

Take Her on a Mural Tour

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend more time with your motherly figure on Mother’s Day, take her on a bike tour to see some cool art downtown. You can get bonus points by being her personal photographer at her favorite murals all day. Find our Arts & Parks Tour here and our Downtown Austin Mural Tour here. 

Gift Her a Gym Membership

For extra active moms, treat them to their favorite workout or that studio they have been wanting, especially since so many new studios have opened downtown, to try by getting them a class pass or month-long pass. For some ideas of the fun places to workout downtown here. 

Treat Her to Some of the Drinks Your Childhood Owes Her

Fund a happy hour with the gals for your mom so she can unwind or take her out for drinks yourself and reminisce on some childhood stories over cocktails. Maybe stick to her favorite sentimental stories and save the ones you said you would tell her one day when you were older for another time. Check out some of our favorite happy hours here. 

Pool at Zaza

Pool Day Lounge Time

Your mom deserves to lounge by the pool with poolside cocktails. Treat her to a rooftop pool and check out some of the pools offering day passes and cabana rentals in downtown Austin. 

Get a Local Gift

Shop local and give your mom a great gift this year. Some of the best places to shop for mom are in the 2nd Street District. You can gift her crafts and cocktails at Upstairs Circus. Give her cute clothes, accessories or home goods at Stella Dallas, Austin Rocks, Hemline, Luxe Apothetique, UAL and more. Get her some new jewelry at Eliza Page or new shoes at Sneaker Politics if that is her style. 

Whether the best way to treat your mom is giving her more time away from you or more time with you is for you to decide, but we hope we helped give you some excellent ideas on how to celebrate her.
