12 Sweet Gifts Your Mom Will Actually Love

Every year it’s the same answer: “Mom, what do you want for Mother’s Day?” She answers, “Oh, I don’t need anything honey, I just want to spend time with you.” While that is nice and I agree, what it really means is that I am on my own to come up with a unique Mother’s Day gift – because of course, I have to get her something.

So to please my mom and fulfill my daughterly duty to buy her a present, I am going to get her an experience as her gift this year. Something we can do together, or even that she can do alone, but something unique that she hasn’t done before that will hopefully be memorable and fun. Here are some ideas for sweet experiential gifts for mom from the sweet experts in Hershey, PA.

A Sweet Hands and Feet Treatment at The Spa At The Hotel Hershey, where they actually paint your feet with chocolate!

Delight her with a signature Chocolate Martini.

Visit one of these restaurants to experience this libation or make one yourself at home. Here’s how:


Give her the power to choose…and go with a gift card giving her the option of a Spa Day with friends!

If you are looking for the child of the year award, a weekend with her friends at The Hotel Hershey is sure to please. The property features cottages that have multiple bedrooms, so you and your siblings can  split the cost.


We’ve all been there and need a last minute option. On Mother’s Day, take mom to Hershey Gardens (it’s free for her, but you don’t have to tell her that).


For an experience of a lifetime, secure tickets to a show this summer. Hershey, PA just announced that Paul McCartney will be coming in July, so take her to the show.


Spring for a Hersheypark Season Pass,  so you can experience loads of #HersheyparkHappy together this summer (plus seasonal events).


Mmmmmm….milkshakes with Mom at Chocolate World.


If she is a history buff, take her to the Hershey Story or take a ride on the Trolley Tour around Hershey for a fascinating history of the town and the chocolate maker himself, Milton S Hershey.


Roller coaster ride at Hersheypark.

I took my mom on Wildcat when she visited me last year and she absolutely loved it. It was the first rollercoaster she had ridden in 30+ years and she can’t wait to experience it again!



Experience animals up close and personal at ZooAmerica.


Last but not least, pretty much anything you do with your mom and chocolate in Hershey, PA will be a hit.
