When you think about it, it's sad they only get one day of the year devoted to them because they deserve so much more. Celebrate your moms by doing something special for her on Mother's Day in Oklahoma City. Here are ideas on how to make it the perfect holiday for Mom, from gift ideas to food and fun.

The first thought for most on Mother's Day is finding the perfect gift, something special that will capture our appreciation in the same way those handmade and misshapen clay bowls from elementary school used to.

Since most of our moms would look at us funny if we tried that again, gift-buying is the best answer. In fact, for those that may not get to see their mothers for the holiday, it might be the only answer.

Get the Perfect Gift for Mom

There are few better places to turn for great gift ideas than About.com's Collectibles site.

Take Mom Out to Eat

Gifts are great, but I suspect if you asked most moms, they'd much rather spend time with their kids than get a gift for Mother's Day. So why not take your mom out to eat in Oklahoma City. Dinner is always a good choice, of course, and any OKC favorite could work. Mom might even find a more intimate dining experience in the metro perfect for catching up with her children in a nice, quiet atmosphere.

Fondue restaurant The Melting Pot in Bricktown has Mother's Day specials with gifts for Mom. Call (405) 235-1000 for a reservation.

But if dining out is something you do frequently, a good suggestion for variety might be to try brunch. Here are some of the better options for brunch in Oklahoma City:

Explore Oklahoma City with Mom

After brunch, continue spending time with Mom by taking her out to explore the Oklahoma City metro. She'll undoubtedly love any of the following...

Make Mother's Day an Event in OKC

Mother's Day is, of course, held on the 2nd Sunday in May, and the month holds a couple of favorite annual events in the Oklahoma City metro area that Mom might enjoy.

  • The Downtown Edmond Arts Festival is typically held the first weekend of May.
  • The Oklahoma City Philharmonic often concludes their season in mid-May.

But that's not nearly all. Check the May Event Calendar here on About.com for other events the moms will love, from live concerts to exhibitions at State Fair Park.
