It’s one of those cliches that’s actually true - the best gift you could give a mom is your time. So this Mother’s Day, we’ve compiled a list covering 6 of our favorite ways to pamper and spend time with that special woman in your life.
Brunch and Bubbles
Start the day right with an incredible brunch at Goodall’s Kitchen. Located inside Hotel Ella, this Southern restaurant is hosting a morning brunch complete with special dishes like orange blossom crème brûlée, crab cake benedict, and more. Moms will even be treated to a glass of bubbly on them.

For families with younger children, a fun activity and way to treat mom would be a family picnic in, our personal favorite, Zilker Park. Whether climbing on rocks, throwing the frisbee, or merely running around, there’s plenty of room for kids to expel their energy while Mom enjoys views of the city and relaxes beneath the shade. Extra points if Mom doesn’t have to pack the basket herself!

Paint and Sip
Treat mom to an artful twist with a fun-filled day out (or in) sipping, socializing and creating at Painting with a Twist. If everyone is 21 and up, painters can enjoy a wine or mimosa while getting creative. Kids as young as 10 years old can participate in-studio but when Twisting virtually, any age is welcomed. There’s no artistic skills required, just a desire for some family fun.

Spa Day for Two (or More)
For mothers with older children, a relaxing day at the spa might be just what the doctor ordered. The award-winning Lake Austin Spa Resort offers a secluded lakefront setting with incredible amenities and a unique balance of ancient and modern treatments. Treat mom to an elegant meal at Aster Café followed (or preceded) by a number of treatments and services ranging from revitalizing facials and full-body wraps to floating meditation and everything in between.

Sometimes mom just needs to get away - from the daily grind, the chores, the stress. For a little escape that doesn’t take months of planning or airfare, head out to The Wayback where the air is fresh, the surrounding quieter, and the pace of life just a little less hectic. A casual boutique hotel located less than 15 minutes from downtown Austin, guests can enjoy a peaceful setting with eight cottages, a cafe with seasonal rotating menu incorporating the freshest ingredients, a serene pool tucked beneath the shade of the live oaks, and more.
