So you’re bringing Mom to the Grand Strand for Mother’s Day — and that in itself is an amazing gift that’s hard to top. But for those looking to take an already great gift to another level, there are plenty of ways to kick the maternal pampering up a bit during your stay at North Breach Plantation. While you and the family are making memories together on the Carolina coast, consider these 10 great ways to spoil Mom in the Myrtle Beach area:
A Flowers by Richard Assortment — A floral arrangement, of course, is a classic Mother’s Day pick. And at Flowers by Richard on Oak Street in Myrtle Beach, gift options range from simple arrangements to elaborate bouquets. The store’s wide-ranging catalog of available flowers includes favorites such as roses, tulips, lilies, daisies, orchids and more. Delivery is available throughout Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet and Surfside Beach, or patrons can drop in to pick up their arrangements. Please note — for Mother’s Day, placing your order at least two days before the holiday is highly recommended.
Brunch at Croissants — Let Mom sleep in on Mother’s Day (reminder, it’s Sunday, May 13, this year), then treat her to brunch. With a pair of Myrtle Beach locations, Croissants Bistro & Bakery has been a favorite among locals since 1995. On Sundays, breakfast is served until 2 p.m., and offerings include crepes, Benedicts, and a collection of house specialties that includes Bananas Foster French Toast, Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits and the Quiche Du Jour. If Mom’s in the mood for more, there’s also a lunch menu and a selection of items from the bakery.
Dessert at The Melting Pot — Another dessert option is the out-of-the-ordinary fondue approach found at The Melting Pot. Especially if Mom’s a chocaholic, she’ll love the Chocolate Fondue menu options the likes of the Original featuring milk chocolate with crunchy peanut butter melted in, the Flaming Turtle with milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans, and the Yin & Yang featuring both dark and white chocolates. Whichever she chooses, she’ll get to dip fresh fruits and sweet treats into the melty chocolate goodness.
A Ride on the SkyWheel — Show Mom the heights of your appreciation with a ride on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. You’ll be able to hop aboard one of the 187-foot-tall Ferris wheel’s 42 glass-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas to get a bird’s-eye view of the Boardwalk, the coastline, the ocean and downtown Myrtle Beach. The gondolas have room for up to six, and a private flight is ensured for all boarding parties — so you won’t have to share the ride with strangers. The ride will take you for three revolutions, which amounts to about 10 minutes of treating Mom to Myrtle Beach’s beauty from high above.
A Visit to Cinzia Spa — Treat Mom to the ultimate in Mother’s Day relaxation and pampering at the Cinzia Spa, located right on the resort property at North Beach Plantation. Options for spoiling her here include facials, body treatments, manicures, pedicures and a long list of massage varieties.
An Appointment at Blush Beauty Bar — Let Mom choose a fresh new look with a salon visit at Blush Beauty Bar on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach. Here, she can choose from an array of hair services such as a haircut, color or highlights, as well as get a manicure, pedicure, peel, nail polish and more.
Shopping at The Market Common — This Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment complex is an ideal destination for the Mom who’s looking for some retail therapy. The shopping options at The Market Common include a range of national chains offering the latest fashions, as well as an array of locally owned boutique shops where unique finds are on tap.
Tickets to a Legends in Concert Show — At Legends in Concert, located at Myrtle Beach hot spot Broadway at the Beach, Mom can catch tribute artists who look and sound like some of the most popular musical acts from the past and present. Depending on when she goes, she’ll get to enjoy the top hits of stars like Elvis Presley, Bruno Mars, Tim McGraw, Michael Jackson, Jimmy Buffett, The Blues Brothers and more. Check the schedule to see what’s on tap during your Myrtle Beach visit.
A Wine & Design Painting Party — Let Mom’s and the rest of the vacation crew’s creative juices flow at Wine & Design, which offers locations in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Here, a professional art instructor will guide you through a painting project (with everything you’ll need to create your own masterpiece supplied) while you all sip on your (BYOB) beverage of choice.
A Spa Treatment for Mom’s Fur Baby — For the Mom who has babies of both the two-legged and four-legged variety, she’s sure to love seeing her pet get pampered, too. Visit the Myrtle Beach PetSmart to treat the furry apple of Mom’s eye to a grooming or bath & brush session.
