TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — What better way to show mom how much she is valued than to spend the day with her, making new memories that can be cherished for a lifetime? Brunch is always a good option and there are plenty of places throughout the area offering Mother's Day Brunch specials for dine-in or take-out.

Cards and flowers are also appreciated, though flowers are very pricey this year.

A day spent together, doing something a bit different, could be priceless! Below are a few suggestions we came up with. To add an idea to this list, send us a few details and a link to the website or a Facebook page via email to

Mother's Day Tea at the Lavender Farm (SOLD OUT)
The Mother's Day teas sold out quickly, but don't despair. The owners shared this information with us on future opportunities.
"The lavender is starting to bloom and it is quite the sight when it does. Besides the amazing scent, there are thousands of butterflies and bees! We are in Oracle so we are a good 10 degrees cooler than Tucson. IWe have lavender dinners, brunches, yoga, a fairy festival and even a June Bloom Retreat planned for the summer (June 26,27). Our hours will be May 29, 30th from 8am-noon and then starting June 3rd we will be open every Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun from 8am-noon. We will be offering lavender wreath workshops, lavender wand workshops in the mornings and Friday evenings. All our events include live music and lavender goodies. We also have a lavender pop-up shop where you can purchase lavender and lavender products, cards, etc."
