A great choice for family bonding! Treat mom to a shopping spree at the fabulous boutique shops of Washington and New Preston to refresh her wardrobe (or feather her nest) for spring. Our Spring Shopping Guide will help her find some great looks to rock as the weather warms up.

Every mom needs a little time to herself to unwind and recharge. Help her relax with a massage and wellness treatment at Valley Spirit Co-op or a yoga class at New Preston’s ah Yoga. Or treat her to an indulgent afternoon at one of Washington’s fantastic salons. Who wouldn’t love a gift certificate for hair and makeup by some of the best in the industry?
Enjoy art together
Spend some quality time with mom by taking in an art show together. Explore fascinating abstract pieces by local Connecticut artists at the Washington Art Association and at Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens. Then enjoy striking watercolors at Gunn Memorial Library’s Stairwell Gallery.
Savor wine and tunes
