Mother’s Day gift guide to Santana Row 2016

Mother’s Day is approaching, this means it is time to think about finding that special something for your fabulous Mom! She has worked so hard for you your entire life, it is time to show her how much you appreciate, and love her, with the perfect Mother’s Day gift!

Santana Row is a fabulous place to go in order to find the perfect gift for Mom this upcoming Mother’s Day. It is also a great place to spend Mother’s Day with your Mom!

Start the day off right with a Mother’s Day brunch at Left Bank, or The Village Cafe; my two favorite brunch spots at Santana Row. After brunch, treat Mom to the fabulous gift you purchased for her right there on the Row! I have a few amazing gift ideas below to help you get your shopping done before the big day 😉

After you give her your gift, why not take Mom shopping! You can include a Santana Row gift card in your gift, or just take her shopping around the Row. After a day of shopping, why not relax at Burke Williams with a spa day! Mom will love it!

Now that Mom is relaxed, why not treat her to a chic dinner at Blowfish Sushi, Cielo, LB Steak, or Straights! After all, she deserves a day off from the kitchen!  Now how’s that for an amazing Mother’s Day!

Wondering what to buy Mom as a gift? Never fear, my annual gift guide is here! Below are my picks from Santana Row for Mother’s Day presents; all in line with the current runway, and street trends. Happy shopping!
