Last-Minute Gifts for Asheville Moms


Scrambling for a last-minute Mother's Day gift that doesn't scream "oh crap! I forgot about Mother's day!!" We have a few ideas to save your day.

Something Sweet

If the mom in your life enjoys a little something sweet, there's a new option in Asheville to satisfy that craving. Take her for a pie flight at South Asheville's new Baked Pie Company in Arden. Three "slivers" of pie and a scoop of ice cream to share. Sweet perfection. 

Something Adventurous

Take mom on a day trip to enjoy the great views and wide open spaces WNC has to offer. You could go for a parkway cruise and stop at one of the many overlooks for a picnic and some photos, or try one of our favorite kid-friendly hikes.

Something Luxurious

Even the most practical mom enjoys being spoiled once in awhile. Send her for a spa day at one of the area's many local spots. She can truly make a day of it at the Grove Park Inn or Sensibilities in Biltmore Park - when you purchase a spa treatment you have access the spa facilities and hotel pool all day!

Spa day not her thing? We haven't met a mom yet who wouldn't love the gift of TIME (and an extra set of hands!). Give her a personal concierge package from Tick Tock Concierge, she'll love the luxury of having a personal assistant to tackle her to-do list. 

Something Homemade

Confession time: I loathe crafting. Yup. But thanks to the internet (and especially Pinterest), even the least crafty among us can manage a quick homemade and heartfelt gift for mom. If you want to really dazzle her, how about sending her off to that spa day (or really anything else she loces to do on her own but never gets time for) while you work on the craft at home with the kiddos!

Now get crackin'! You got this :)

(And PS - we offer gift certificates too! If the mom in your life could use some help at home with baby or a good night's sleep, Doulas of Asheville's team of Postpartum & Infant Care Doulas are here for her day and night.)
