Mother’s Day is right around the corner! This year, mom’s special day falls on Sunday, May 13 – and there’s no better time than the present to begin selecting the perfect gift. To thank the mother in your life for all that she’s contributed, consider a unique gift idea – sourced straight from the islands! At Grand Jewelers, we encourage our patrons to think outside the box – and this year, we suggest a handful of grand gestures that are bound to make this mother’s day the most memorable one yet.
Pamper Mom – Island Style
Every mother deserves a little pampering, and the spa scene could be just the ticket. Facials, Manicures, Pedicures, Foot Reflexology or a Massage can make any mom feel the weight of the world lift from their shoulders. Many specialty day spas offer packages for Mother’s Day which combine multiple services. If visiting the islands, both St. Thomas and St. Maarten boast dozens of appealing spas. Visitors and locals alike adore getting a refreshing treatment at Sugar and Spice Salon & Spa, ZunZun Caribbean Massage & Spa or Prana Spa. On St. Maarten, spa fanatics are wild about Ti Spa in Grand Case. Yoga and Pilates are ever-popular on both islands, so consider rounding off mom’s day at the spa with a restorative, centering session.
Surprise Her with Finery
A special meal surrounded by your loved ones, what could be better? But beyond just serving breakfast in bed, one way to make a grand Mother’s Day gesture is to plan a fine dining experience. Consider calling her favorite restaurant to request a special private dining table, or even having them create a personalized menu for your family or group. A restaurant with live music for brunch, lunch or dinner can also set a festive mood.
Fine dining options abound on St. Maarten and St. Thomas – and our world-class service and top-notch cuisine are unparalleled. On St. Thomas sumptuous sunset views and elegant, intimate dining rooms make for an unforgettable Mother’s Day celebration. The restaurant Thirteen scores rave reviews for wood-fired pizza, and Pesce Italian (re-opening for business in the next 6-8 weeks) serves up the island’s best pasta and a fine wine menu. On St. Maarten, enjoy French-inspired seafood at Bistrot Caraibes, or dine on inventive Italian at Spiga Restaurant. If mom adores the finer things in life, consider gifting her a meal she won’t soon forget.
Cruise Away this Mother’s Day
If you’re interested in going all out and wowing mom this mother’s day, look no further than a cruise. Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Carnival Cruise Line all offer unique, all-inclusive packages designed to showcase the best that cruise travel have to offer. Cruises offer the fullest all-inclusive experience; exciting destinations, dining, entertainment, nightlife, leisure activities and picturesque views.
If our islands are on your cruise itinerary, Mom will fall in love with our turquoise seas, our pristine shores, and the incredible wildlife that abounds – both in the sea and on the sand! Island Star Charters offers unforgettable tours of the island and environs, and pack activities like snorkeling and sailing into the daily routine. Day cruises from St. Thomas deliver visitors to the British Virgin Islands for a taste of something different.
Give the Gift of Sparkle
There’s no gift more timeless than jewelry, which mom can proudly show off for decades to come. Plus, jewelry can be kept in the family, which makes an heirloom piece such an excellent choice come Mother’s Day.
