Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Denver Moms
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.
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.
