It’s the time of year where we honor the ones who have cleaned countless messes, travelled to all the soccer games and have always been there when we’ve needed some good motherly love and advice. When visiting Rowan County this Mother’s Day, we want to make sure you take advantage of everything your mom will love, so we comprised a gift and attraction guide to make your life easy.


Where to shop?

For the book and coffee mom…

If your mom loves to relax with a good book and cup of coffee, we have two great ideas for you to check out this Mother's Day.

Sometimes something as simple as getting a fresh cup of coffee can turn any day around. Come by and pick up mom a gift card for her to use on those days where the first cup of coffee just isn’t enough.


For the mom who needs a break…

Every mom deserves a good spa day, and luckily, Rowan County has a great selection of salon and spas. While in town, pick mom up a gift certificate to her location of choice. Here are some options that come to mind that would be perfect for mom:

For the chef mom…

Some moms cook because they have to, and others cook because they love to. Here are our ideas for those moms who are natural chefs.
