5 Unique Gifts Mom Will Love This Year
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to think about how you’re going to treat the mom(s) in your life this year. You could go with classics like fresh-cut flowers and gourmet chocolates – or you could make 2022 the year you go the extra mile to find a gift as special and unique as she is.
If you’re going with option two, we’re here to help. We’ve gathered some great ideas to show you’re thinking outside of the (gift) box, and they’re sure to make any mom’s day special. These gifts don’t even require that extra mile – just a pleasant trip to The Pantry at The Wharf or a call to our friendly staff at Orange Beach Concierge Services.
Order The Pans for a Chef-Prepared Meal
If mom prefers a low-key meal without the hassle of going out to dinner, The Pans are a perfect gift for any occasion. Simply give us a call to order one of our delicious chef-prepared dinners like chicken marsala or rich beef bourguignon, each with a crusty baguette, sides, and chef’s choice dessert. These fuss-free meals are made to serve four and are packaged to go for easy pick-up at The Pantry at The Wharf. A break from cooking never tasted so good!
El Guapo Craft Cocktail Mixers
Help mom stay happy and healthy with these artisanal cocktail mixers made from high-quality ingredients. Each delicious flavor is non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, free of high fructose corn syrup, and fully vegetarian – plus they’re all made by hand in nearby New Orleans! Whether mom is a fan of tangy Lime Cordials, Salted Palomas, or a good ol’ fashioned Bloody Mary, you’re sure to find her new favorite mixer in The Pantry’s collection of El Guapo products. And the vintage bottles are a beautiful addition to any bar or shelf!
Tortuga Rum Cakes
If you can’t send mom on a Caribbean vacation, these authentic rum cakes are the next best thing. They’re crafted in Caribbean bakeries using the freshest local ingredients, then hand-glazed with oak barrel-aged Tortuga Rum for an authentic island taste that takes you right to the beach. The Original Rum Cake is topped with walnuts, but you can also choose from nut-free flavors like Coconut or Pineapple. Each contains less than 1% alcohol so they won’t make her tipsy – but they’re sure to make her smile!
A Fine Dining Experience
(complete with Personal Chef!)
All moms love a meal they don’t have to cook (or clean up after), but there’s something extra luxurious about a meal prepared by your own personal chef. With a gift certificate to our Personal Chef Experience, mom can sit back and relax as Chef David Pan and his culinary team create a four-course dining experience in the comfort of her home. They’ll handle every detail except the guest list for a stress-free evening full of flavor and friendship! Call us at 251-228-6729 to inquire about personal chef gift certificates.
A Luxurious Night at Her Favorite Hotel
If you want to go all-out, here’s a great idea: book a night at her favorite luxe hotel and treat her to a golden getaway – alone. Plan ahead so when you drop her at the door, she’s greeted with everything she needs for a luxurious (and quiet) night of relaxation. Order a chef-prepared charcuterie board and grab a bottle of wine at The Pantry so she can snack and sip without sharing. Throw in a good book she can read in silent bliss and get ready to accept your award for the greatest gift giver!
