Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with it, so is the stress of finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift. It always seems to be a struggle each year – nothing advertised seems to be the right thing, nothing seems to be enough for the person who always puts themselves last, so you wait and wait hoping that the right things will come to you.
This year, there is no need for the panic, no need for the last minute shopping chaos because Beachers Lodge has you covered. With a close proximity to downtown St. Augustine, there is no shortage of excursions to plan, or places to shop.
For the Fishing Mom
If your mom is the kind to have been recently begging you to spend some quality time together, there are a multitude of options in the St. Augustine area, starting with surf fishing just a few steps from your Beachers Lodge condo. Begin with a few lessons from Noel Kuhn, or jump right into a full five hours on the beach with nothing but the sun, the sand, and your fishing rod. If time on the open sea is more her style, you can find full and half day fishing charters organized by Sea Love Charters or our favorite, the Jody Lynn. With everything provided for you, barring your mom’s favorite meal that you’ll pack to bring along, this is the perfect way to spend all your time focused on bonding.
Mom Wants Salt Therapy
Mom does so much for the family all year round. To keep her sanity during her beach vacation, why not let mom enjoy a little salt thereapy. We offer salt therapy here at the property free of charge. Let mom enjoy a relaxing evening as she sips a nice glass of wine (or whatever she chooses to quench her thirst) as she breaths in the salt air. The sunrises from our balconies can’t be beat!!! That’s one way mom can get in a little salt therapy while enjoying the view.
If mom is looking for a more formal version of Salt Therapy, we suggest taking mom to Salt Spa St. Augustine where she can enjoy a unique salt therapy experience. This spa is located in downtown St. Augustine which resembles a salt cave and features water therapy too!!! It will be an experience she will never forget.
Mom Would Love an Eco Tour
Returning a little bit closer to home, Eco Tours is a fantastic way to spend some quality time with your mom while also learning more about the local environment. From boating expeditions to kayaking adventures and sailing excursions, Eco Tours will be there to help you every step of the way. They even offer private tours, in case you feel like planning a special surprise to round out the day.
Mom the Chocolate Lover
Whetstone Chocolates, located on St. George Street, is the place to go for the best chocolates in all of St. Augustine. From assorted chocolates to chocolate covered pretzels to sugar-free options, you’re sure to find something to please in this wonderful shop – and you might even get to enjoy a tasting while you’re there.
Mom Loves a Little Spice
The Spice and Tea Exchange on Hypolita Street has a variety of teas, spices, sugars, sea and mineral salts, and plenty of accessories to accompany or accommodate any of the aforementioned gifts. They even have pre-organized crate boxes to ship rest and relaxation directly to your mom’s front door. How cool would it be for mom to have an extended Mom Appreciation gift waiting for her after enjoying her beach getaway with you?
Mom Loves Shopping
If a day out in the sun isn’t what momma ordered, and you know that mom loves to go shopping, there are a multitude of stores just a short drive away from your home away from home -Beachers Lodge.
If you and mom feel up for a small adventure, the Vintage Warehouse on Anastasia Boulevard is the place for you. Filled to the brim with unique, upcycled vintage wares, chances are that you and mom will find something among the shelves that just screams take me home!
Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be a day of stress, hoping that everything goes perfectly. Let Beachers Lodge help you make it the best Mother’s Day yet, and be sure to take a look at the special discounts on rentals going on now!
