Moms work hard, and of course, we appreciate it. But do we show it? This Mother’s Day, show your mom how special she is and how much you love her by getting her something that she wouldn’t get for herself, or by spending quality time together (or both). We know, she’d probably be happy with a card and some simple acknowledgment, but this year, let’s wow her!

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8, 2022! Here are some ideas for mom (on Mother’s Day, or any time she’d like):

Beautiful Brunch or Dinner at The Brooklyn

The Brooklyn sunset patio

The Brooklyn Restaurant & Bar in Edinburgh USA in Brooklyn Park is owned and operated by D’Amico & Partners, one of the most influential restaurant and catering operators in the Twin Cities. This unique restaurant is a comfortable, clubby American bistro that includes outdoor dining, lounge seating with fire pits, and magnificent golf course views. The cuisine boasts classic, comforting American dishes, elevated with fresh, contemporary touches and locally sourced ingredients. It's a wonderful choice for brunch or dinner to treat Mom on Mother's Day!

Spa and Wellness Splurge - Mom is Worth It!


Does your mom workout or enjoy trying new activities? Why not purchase gift cards or packages at a yoga studio? JMD Wellness  in Brooklyn Park specializes in workouts that will help your mom “push past physical boundaries with an open mind and a beating heart…”. A wide range of classes are available, so whether your mom is a beginner, or wants to unleash her inner warrior in an advanced class, you’ll find it all here.

Near by Minneapolis Northwest is an incredible selection of spas that any mom would LOVE! Whether she would enjoy a massage, a pedicure, a facial, or a new hairstyle, we have the perfect place for mom to unwind and feel pampered.

The Woodhouse Day Spa at the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes has more than 70 rejuvenating spa treatments, from The Woodhouse Signature Minkyti facial (a personal favorite), to a variety of massages, sleep treatments, seaweed wraps, and more! Simonson’s Salon & Spa has haircare perfected. If your mom wants a new cut or style, this is the perfect place to bring her (or give her a gift card). Give her a little extra and she can get a hot stone massage, a manicure, or whatever else her heart desires. 

Mother’s Day with the Whole Family

Maybe your mom’s favorite part of Mother’s Day is spending it with the whole family. We’ve got plenty of ideas for that too. Here are a few of our favorites:


A Mother’s Day brunch is a great tradition for many families. Try Fat Nat's (busy, but the food is worth the wait), they have a wide variety of eggs and pancakes. They have a large breakfast selection guaranteed to please the entire family (which mom will LOVE). Start any morning off right with one of the varieties of eggs Benedict, omelettes, pancakes or French toast, or give yourself a mid-day boost with a hearty lunch sandwich.


Topgolf is always a hit with the whole family. Mom and little ones will enjoy it, even if they have never swung a club. The popular high-tech all-season golf center in Brooklyn Center features  more than 100 climate-controlled hitting bays with balls tracked by data-absorbing microchips. It’s the kind of golf that anyone can play and win. Score points by hitting balls at giant dartboard-like targets out on the field. The closer you get your ball to the center or 'bullseye' and the further the distance, the more points earned. Topgolf also features a full-service restaurant and bar. The staff will treat Mom and everyone else as royalty because they always do!

Color Me Mine

If you have little kids, Color Me Mine is the perfect family activity. The kids can pick out pieces for mom and paint them with her for a special Mother’s Day gift that she’ll cherish forever. Bonus? Everyone will have a lot of fun choosing their pieces and getting creative.


If the day is sunny you might want to take advantage of it and spend some quality time together having a picnic in one of our family-friendly parks. Grab a blanket, pack some snacks, and head to Central Park in Maple Grove. There is plenty of luscious, green grass, a playground, and trails for the kids to run around on and explore. Another great place for a picnic and adventures is Elm Creek Park Reserve. You can run around the trails, check out Eastman Nature Center, climb around the incredible children’s play area, or relax and enjoy the sounds and sights of nature all around you.

This Mother’s Day, treat mom like the queen she is. Give her a gift that makes her feel special, and spend quality time creating memories that will last a lifetime in Minneapolis Northwest.
