  7. Mother’s Day Gifts 2023

Mother’s Day, a day to show the most important woman in your life your love and appreciation. Finding the perfect way to do that can be daunting. Finding a unique way is even more daunting. Let us help you give the most unique Mother’s Day gift this year. 

CNN recently published a guide with 40 unique gifts. So we’ve built upon their list to boost the Mother’s Day experience even more. Check out how you can use some of those gifts with one from SugarHouse to make her feel special.

Outdoor Kitchen Essentials

Several products on CNN’s list are perfect to include in an outdoor kitchen. There’s a smokeless fire pit, two different pizza ovens, and a knife block set. But what if you don’t have an outdoor kitchen yet? Here are a few ideas of how to create one:

  • Lighting: Good lighting is essential for creating a welcoming and functional outdoor kitchen. Add ambient lighting such as string lights, lanterns, or under-counter lighting to create a cozy atmosphere.
  • Seating: Make sure there is plenty of comfortable seating for your guests. Consider adding a dining table, outdoor sofas or lounge chairs, or bar stools.
  • Entertainment: Add a TV, sound system, or outdoor games to create a fun and relaxing atmosphere for your guests.
  • Outdoor appliances: Install outdoor appliances such as a refrigerator, ice maker, or outdoor sink to make food prep and entertaining easier and more enjoyable.
  • Shade: Install a shade structure such as a pergola or awning to provide protection from the sun and create a comfortable and shaded space for cooking and dining. 

A Suntamer Tension Panel is a great awning option to provide shade. This tension structure can be attached to an existing structure or we can provide an aesthetically pleasing aluminum frame. They can also be temporary or permanent.

A Place to Relax and Unwind

It’s essential to give moms a dedicated space to unwind. With the arrival of pleasant weather, why not set up a spa-like atmosphere outdoors? The next few items on CNN’s list can be used to enhance that space. A moon pod (a modern bean bag chair), a bamboo palm, and a cozy hoodie sound like a good start. We also have several products to shape a serene area for mom outdoors.

Our Shadeglide Slide-Wire Canopy is a perfect way to provide a shady spot for mom to take a timeout. And if she wants a bit of sunshine, she can retract the canopy to let the light in. Add a moon pod or an outdoor sofa for her to lounge on and she’ll be good to go. Already have seating that needs to be refreshed? We reupholster chairs and outdoor furniture. We use premium outdoor foams and fabrics that will keep your furniture looking nice for a long time. 

If the sound and smell of rain relaxes mom, she can enjoy a summer rainstorm underneath her slide-wire canopy. A Verticool Drop Shade can be added to the canopy structure to protect against unwanted wind and blowing rain. These handy outdoor shades provide the perfect solution to beat the heat as well as harmful UV rays. They reduce glare while still allowing a pleasant breeze to flow through. With a wide range of colors and styles to choose from, you can easily customize the Verticool to match your outdoor decor.  

Entertaining Friends

An outdoor kitchen and a place to relax at home are great. However, sometimes mom needs to get away from home and appreciate the outdoors. And mom needs to take her friends along with her! A few more items from the list got us thinking about entertaining friends on the go. A cheese board, dessert sampler pack, and a bluetooth record player with her favorite tunes will get the party started. 

So where are they going? With summer on its way, it’s a great time for the ladies to get out on the water. Keep them cool and out on the water longer with additional shade from our Wakeshade Universal Shade Extension. Installing the Wakeshade is a breeze and doesn’t require any drilling or customization. No downtime or paying service fees. When not in use, the Wakeshade can be easily retracted and folded compactly for storage.

There are plenty of unique and thoughtful gifts for mom. Consider which one of these Mother’s Day experiences she’ll appreciate the most. Then give us a call at 801-563-9600 to get started on it.
