Maura and I took on the challenging task of scouring Palm Beach County so you can celebrate Mother’s Day with some style and elegance.

The flagship location on Worth Avenue even offers custom Lilly shift dresses you can design yourself and custom-painted bags.

A South Florida tradition, with six stores in our area, Hoffman’s is a beloved local chocolate shop where generations of Floridians have bought hand-made chocolates for their mom. They offer special Mother’s Day gift boxes, lovely chocolate tulips, ice cream, fudge, and gorgeous roses. Their chocolate-covered strawberries are a best seller, and you can customize a box with Mom’s special favorites.

The Fresh Market
1727 S. Federal Hwy-Delray Beach, FL 33483 561-279-2806
Need a last-minute Mother’s Day gift? The Fresh Market located throughout Palm Beach County has the most stunning potted orchids and cut flowers for that special mom. Roses range from creamy white, pink, yellow, lilac, and red to arrangements made up and ready to go. There are gorgeous cards two feet from the flowers (bring your own pen. They don’t sell pens.) and pretty gift bags. Godiva and Lindt’s chocolates are available in the candy aisle if you need additional gifts. It’s an absolute lifesaver for a busy son, daughter, or husband.
2200 Glades Rd- Boca Raton, Fl 33431 561-569-2314
In twelve locations throughout the state, Fitlife Foods offers a program that is the perfect gift for a new mom. They offer a variety of prepared healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals that you can order to be delivered or pick-up at their store. I’ve tried many of these kinds of food from other companies, but Fitlife is above and beyond the most delicious, with many options. The miso-glazed salmon with veggies and citrus-soy brown rice quinoa is remarkable. An exhausted and sleep-deprived mom would so appreciate the meals. Gift certificates are available.
Henry Morrison Flagler Museum
1 Whitehall Way, Palm Beach, FL 33480
Can’t make it to Europe for Mothers Day? Well, the European vibe is closer than you may think. Standard Oil co-founder Henry Flagler’s 75-room Gilded Age estate, completed in 1902, was deemed by The New York Herald to be “more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world.” Keeping that in mind, why not dress up and treat your Mom to an exceptional Gilded Age-style Tea Service at this National Historic Landmark? And after you’re done with tea, enjoy touring the estate, Flagler’s private Railcar No.91, and then explore the property to create some beautiful, lasting photographic memories.
Buccan Sandwich Shop
350 S County Rd, Palm Beach, FL 33480
Suppose you want to take Mom for a great Mother’s Day picnic; the Buccan Sandwich Shop is the place to start. Tucked around the corner from acclaimed Palm Beach chef (and multiple James Beard Award nominee) Clay Conley’s Buccan and Imoto, you will find the unassuming Buccan Sandwich Shop. From fresh baguettes filled with a variety of mouth-watering tastes to delicious salads, homemade chips, cookies, and lemonades, this should be named “The Best Sandwich Shop” – yes, I have tried it all, and everything is fantastic.
312 B S County Rd, Palm Beach, FL 33480
Speaking of picnics, if you are looking for a chic basket, Amanda Lindroth is the place for baskets, bags, and wicker trays, perfect for sophisticated island entertaining. How about The Birkin Basket bag for Mom? Inspired by Jane Birkin, this classy, natural rattan bag completes any outfit, whether you are shopping along Worth Avenue or toting your lunch or a bottle of bubbly to take to the beach. In either case, why not do it with flair?
Finally, we have the least expensive and sometimes the hardest present for loved ones to give on Mother’s Day. It is the gift of attention. Put your phones and computers in another room and focus on the people that matter in your life. Make a pot of tea or pour a glass of wine and have a conversation. Ask them about their dreams and goals. You might be surprised by the answers. We have all been through a rough couple of years that challenged even the hardiest souls. Take this day to reach out to friends and family that might need a bit of “mothering” in the best possible sense, kindness, compassion, and connection. It’s what no computer can ever do.
