We know what will make your mother happy for a special Mother’s Day weekend in Topeka! Check out the following suggestions, and remember, the only thing mom really wants is to spend some time with you. And some pampering, and some shopping…

Backs by Popular Demand | 301 SW Gage | Stop in and get mom a gift certificate for a luxurious massage. With styles ranging from gentle (Swedish, Reiki, etc.) to therapeutic (Deep Tissue, Craniofacial, etc.) she’s sure to enjoy this moment of pampering.

Casa Bellesa | 2500 W 17th | Get your mom “summer ready” with highlights + gel shellac nails, the latest rage. Gift certificates available.

Designer’s Showhouse | 8311 SW 33rd Street | The annual Designers’ Showhouse raises much needed support for Child Care Aware  to continue supporting the community by offering resources to families and child care providers. Certainly this is a cause your mom could support! Click here for hours and ticket information.

Downtown Farmers Market | 12th & Harrison | Nothing makes a hippie-dippie mama feel better than knowing she’s providing her family with healthy, locally-sourced food products. Take her to the Farmers Market Saturday morning, open from 7:30a-12p.

Envy Salon | 15th & Lane | Your mom’s fingertips and toes could probably use some special attention. Get her the Spring Nail Special! $50 gets her a Mani & Pedi (add $10 for the OPI Gel Colour). Call 233-5577 to schedule her appointment!

Topeka Civic Theatre & Academy | What mother doesn’t enjoy a good laugh? Celebrate her laugh lines with… Laugh Lines! Formerly known as Laughing Matters, this funny and unpredictable improv group will put your mom in a good mood that will last a while, at least.

Warehouse 414 | 414 SE 2nd | You are sure to find something your mom will love at this high-style furnishings store with an eclectic mix of new designs, antiques + vintage pieces. They also carry vintage and locally-made jewelry and art.

Whitehall Fine Gifts & Collectibles | 3401 SW 10th | You’ll find something here at every price point for that special mom in your life. It may be a Swarovski crystal-encrusted ring box, a Fenton Art Glass vase,  a Boyd’s Bear, an Armani statue or (and?) a box of  select luscious truffles.  Don’t miss this gem of a store.
