Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Denver Moms

Wellness Getaways

For experiential gifts, there’s nothing better than Colorado’s unique wellness getaways, retreats, programs and clubs. A few of our favorites from that article: Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks offers Shinrin Yoku, the Japanese art of forest bathing, a research-based framework for supporting healing and wellness through immersion in forests. The Chipeta Solar Springs Resort, Ridgway – Chipeta Resort Spa offers a serene space with treatments inspired by the southwest and experienced therapists intuitive in the healing arts. Sacred Spaces, Cañon City, an apothecary in Cañon City, provides nourishment and healing through yoga/herbal medicine/gardening classes. The ultimate Mother’s Day retreat, C Lazy U invites moms (dads are welcome, too) to have some fun with its adults-only Moms May Play Days special. From Monday, May 2 to Sunday, May 8, parents can enjoy the warm spring days without the kiddos. 

Foodie Moms

From the chocolate connoisseur to the aspiring chef, the four-cornered state boasts a ton of options for those who want a taste of Colorado from home. Uncorked Kitchen’s fabulous classes have turned virtual with online cooking classes.  A unique idea comes from the eastern plains, where Lebanese-owned Scaff Brothers handcrafts a mild salsa with cantaloupe grown from the region. For the passionate carnivore, Sweetwood Smokehouse Jerky produces a slow-smoked, double-wide fatty jerky stick that’s a far cry from those sold in most stores today. Nuance Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolatier with a wide range of cocoa-based products made by admittedly certified chocoholics. Those with a sweet tooth will also get a kick out of Enstom’s toffee, which has been hand made with only the finest, freshest ingredients since 1960. Helliemae’s Caramels has perfected a Sea Salt Caramel that satisfies both salt and sweet cravings. The home bartender in your life will surely love The Real Dill’s Bloody Mary Mix, which uses cucumber-infused water—a byproduct of their pickling process—as its star ingredient. And for the home cook who likes to sprinkle in some history, the Anasazi bean is an heirloom-variety legume that comes out of an agricultural plateau in Western Colorado, once home to thousands of Anasazi Indians who cultivated the bean.

Art Lover

This Colorado Retro Travel Poster from ImageKind is a fantastic gift for the Colorado mama in your life. Artisans of Mancos is an artist-owned and managed cooperative featuring 20 artists, who have an array of hand-crafted items such as jewelry, leather items, calligraphy and stained glass. For the makers themselves, give the gift of an innovations studios art workshop from the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass.  If your mom likes a challenge, Liberty Puzzles creates handmade wooden puzzles of Colorado’s most iconic mountain ranges – the Flatirons in Boulder and Aspen’s Maroon Bells (or get one custom-made).

Colorado Gift Box

Transport friends and family to a “Higher State of Mind” with a gastronomical box from Blanco Cellars and Little Cheese Shop, which includes a variety of Colorado-made spirits, cheeses and more. Woman-owned and family-run, Mulay’s Sausage Specialty Gift Boxes offers a package that includes a wide variety of premium Colorado sausages and meatballs for meat lovers. Cured, Boulder’s specialty grocer and cheese shop, offers a Colorado gift box with craft products from all four corners of the state. Colorado Crafted is a modern alternative to traditional gift baskets and offers collections of high-quality Colorado-made souvenirs, gourmet foods and artisan gifts packaged in a stylish box or tote.
For the Body, For the Soul
Pamper your loved ones with a delightful new scent from DRAM Apothecary, handcrafted soaps (or soap-making classes) from Caramel Apple Farm, a beautifully packaged gift set from Dirty Water Soaps Works, Lavender Hydrosol from Dayspring Farm, or soy wax Magic Fairy Candles. Or, as part of a Colorado-cation, give the gift of luxurious spa treatments, a soak in natural hot springs or a solo retreat to Crestone’s Mountain Zen Center.
