Mother’s Day – A Time to Celebrate!


We all know that mothers are amazing people. These hardworking and caring women are the glue that holds our families together. What would we do without them? At Andriot’s, we’re glad that there’s a special day reserved to celebrate these strong and lovely ladies. Here are a few ideas to help you make your mom’s day memorable.


Treat Mom to a Delicious Meal


Most moms don’t mind a day off from cooking, so why not treat her to lunch or dinner out. With the wonderful assortment of dining establishments in our community, there’s sure to be one that she’ll enjoy.


If your skills include those of the culinary variety, make mom a delicious home cooked meal with all her favorites. Set a pretty table indoors or, weather permitting, outside on the deck or patio. Don’t forget to clean up the kitchen afterward, too. Mom will appreciate it more than you know!


Give Her the Gift of Time


Treat mom to time off by taking over her chores, running errands, or any of the dozens of other important things she does every day. Encourage her to take some time for herself and read a book, take a walk, watch a movie, or indulge in a nap. Give her a much-needed break in the routine and show her how much you appreciate all her efforts, big and small.


Pamper Mom


Buy mom a gift certificate to a salon or spa. A new haircut, manicure, massage, or spa treatments are always welcome, and are a lovely break from her routine. Every mom deserves to be pampered once in a while.


Give Her a Thoughtful Gift


What does mom enjoy doing? Reading, cooking, exercising, photography, arts and crafts, attending concerts, or…? Buy her a gift certificate to the places she likes to shop or frequent. Or treat her to a class in her field of interest. Another idea – take the class with her and spend quality time together.


Does mom enjoy doing home improvement projects?  We offer gift certificates and can help her choose the right paint, flooring, or window treatments if she wants to spruce up her home. If she isn’t a do-it-yourselfer, offer to complete the project for her.


If mom happens to be a grilling enthusiast, we carry The Big Green Egg grills and all the EGGcessories, from cooking tools and cookware to tables and covers. No matter what her tastes, she’ll appreciate a personalized gift that comes from the heart. All moms like to know they’re thought of and loved.


Homemade From the Heart


What mom doesn’t love a homemade gift from her kids? Your little ones can express their love and appreciation with fun and useful gifts like pretty vases and other easy to make items found here.  Or, appeal to mom’s sweet tooth with kid friendly recipes like easy frozen yogurt or no bake chewy granola bars. And of course, homemade cards are another great way to tell her how much she’s loved and appreciated.


The Andriot’s team wishes a Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there! Your hard work is appreciated, and we celebrate you! Thank you for investing your lives into ours.
