Moms who love the outdoors will definitely enjoy a gift or two from Grivet Outdoors in Olive Branch. This one stop shop for all things athletics has just what they need, like lightweight and waterproof hiking boots or a windbreaker for breezy bike rides. She can test out her new gear and take in the sights at Arkabutla Lake in Hernando, Latimer Lakes in Horn Lake or the Hernando DeSoto River Park in Walls.

Is the mom in your life artistic or a DIYer? DeSoto Arts Council in Hernando and Pleasant Hill Art Center in Olive Branch are great spots to put painting skills to work. For a hands-on experience, Pottery Haven in Southaven lets guests create their own plates, bowls and more. Or, if mom just appreciates art but doesn’t want to make it, shopping at Magnolia House is a must.

The top-rated Mesquite Chop House in Southaven is back open after an extensive renovation with a new menu and offers an exceptional dining experience for meat lovers. The Parish Oyster Bar in Hernando has fresh and delicious Gulf seafood brought in weekly. And for a quick, healthy bite, head to the new Bare Fruit Açai Bar in Olive Branch.

A spa day can be just the ticket when looking for something relaxing to give the hardworking mom in your life. A gift card to Southaven’s Posh Nails and Aesthetics and For Your Skin Only, Hernando’s Studio 139 and Spa Around the Corner, or Olive Branch’s Gould’s location would make for the ultimate indulgence.
