Sunday is all about celebrating that special woman in your life, so it’s time to find something she will treasure. For the mother who loves to relax with a cup of hot tea, we know she will love Tea Forté’s 40 pyramid Tea Tasting Assortment Tea Chest that contains everything from herbal, and black teas to oolong and white teas. For the stylish mom, Rockport’s Total Motion Kalila Pump in black snake will be sure to keep her looking great while she shops along Newbury Street. (This super comfortable shoe has additional flexibility to bend with her feet while walking so they won’t feel tired even after a long haute day of shopping). For the traditional Mother’s Day gift, we know she will love a box of indulgent chocolates like the ones offered by La Maison du Chocolat, the international chocolatier that recently collaborated with MUGLER fragrance Angel and master perfumer Olivier Cresp to offer a 14-piece gift box of custom chocolates with flavors like Celestial, Delicious, Voluptuous and Angel Star.

For the mom who has everything, actress Jennie Garth has just what she wants this Mother’s Day. Garth recently launched MomGiftBox.com, an online subscription box of products to pamper moms with every purchase benefiting a charity. A few of the items your mom will find in her Welcome Box include Jus D’Amour perfume oil created by R&B artist Mercedes; Boston’s own Dune Jewelry, a custom-made, sand-filled bangle including sand from the Beach House featured on 90210; and The BrowGal, a highlighter pencil created by celebrity brow expert Tonya Crooks.

If you want to give her a toast she will never forget, head over to Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in the Seaport District on Mother’s Day for their $10,000 Martini. The haute cocktail, a collaboration between Boston-based Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Long’s Jewelers, features elit vodka’s pristine water series:Andean edition and includes an 8.5 carat, 14K white gold tennis bracelet from Long’s Signature Collection.

If you are looking to take your special mom somewhere for an afternoon of celebrating, here’s a look at five haute spots in Boston to celebrate her this Mother’s Day.

1 Bliss Spa

Bliss Spa
Doesn't every woman love an indulgent day at the spa? If your lucky lady does as much as we do, she will love Bliss Spa's latest offering. The day spa located at The W Hotel will give moms a Mother’s Day she won’t soon forget. We recommend booking her the indulgent Mother Glows Best package that includes a Triple Oxygen Facial, a 75-minutes Blissage (a full body massage combined with a warm wax foot wrap) that is finished off with a pedicure and/or hot cream manicure.

2 Museum of Fine Arts

Museum of Fine Arts
The art loving mom will want to head to the Museum of Fine Arts to tour the galleries on Sunday and view centuries of art ranging from ancient Egyptian vases to John Singleton Copley's Venus and Cupid. Fashionable moms will love the 4,000 years of jewelry history displayed in Past Is Present: Revival Jewelry. Finish your visit with her off here with a brunch at Bravo, the MFA's fine dining restaurant (they will be offering a special menu for the day inspired by the Museum's current Matisse and Botticelli exhibitions). Before heading out, stop by the gift shop so she can remember her special day with an exquisite pearl and gold creation by jewelry designer Julie Vos or a beautiful scarf featuring images from the MFA's collection.

3 Darryl’s Corner Bar and Kitchen

Darryl's Corner Bar & Kitchen
For the woman who loves to eat (there aren’t many of us who don’t enjoy a great brunch), celebrate your mom with a mimosa toast at an all-you-can-eat jazz brunch, a specialty buffet at Darryl’s Corner Bar and Kitchen being held on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The afternoon will feature live jazz medleys with an extended jazz, blues and spoken melody set by DCBK’s featured performer, Valerie Stephens. Dishes include southern comfort favorites like prime rib and roasted turkey carving stations, mac and cheese, French toast, fried catfish, cheese grits and BBQ ribs.
604 Columbus Avenue Boston, MA 02118

4 Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
For a more formal dining experience, head over with your mom to Fleming’s in Back Bay for a three-course menu on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. She can choose from starters like lobster bisque or a modern Caesar or burrata salad before moving along to a choice of entrée (think porcini-crusted filet mignon), their signature eggs Benedict or cinnamon apple brioche French toast. She will want to save some room for dessert like a slice of New York cheesecake, crème brulee or fresh berries and Chantilly cream. If you opt to take her out for dinner here instead, we recommend she start off with an order of the thick cut maple glazed bacon followed by a juicy dry aged ribeye complemented with a side of jalapeno scalloped potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. After all, it is her day to overindulge because she deserves it.

5 Linda Meredith Couture Oxygen Facial

Mandarin Oriental, Boston
Every mother over the age of 30 would love to sport that youthful glow. If you book the Linda Meredith Couture Oxygen Facial at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, now your special mom can. Designed to address specific skin requirements, this one-hour 20-minute treatment starts off with a deep cleanse using serums that have an antibacterial effect to reduce breakouts, firm the skin and soften fine lines. A steam and extraction process is next up to remove impurities that is followed up with the natural healing power of oxygen, a serum application designed to clean above and below the skin’s surface, smoothing and replenishing damaged cells. It’s not over yet. A relaxing face, neck and shoulder massage completes this treatment.
