Treat mother dearest to a gourmet brunch or dinner from her favorite Hudson Valley restaurant.
Mother’s Day looks a little different this year, Hudson Valley. Unlike last year, when your greatest concerns revolved around booking a table at a nearby restaurant or picking up the perfect present from a local maker, this time around the focus is on figuring out the best way to connect with mom while sheltering in place. Will the whole family hop on a Zoom call? Will you surprise her with a shipment of her favorite local wine? Or maybe send her a card via snail mail?
For the mom who appreciates the rich restaurant scene in the Hudson Valley, there’s no better gift than a delivery or takeout meal from one of her favorite eateries. Across the region, culinary hotspots are making Mother’s Day extra-special with curated packages designed to remind mom that even though she might not be able to celebrate with loved ones in person, she still deserves a little something to make her day.
