How to Plan the Perfect Mother’s Day in NYC

Spending Mother’s Day in NYC? All mom really wants is some quality time with the people she loves, and maybe a few special treats. At 48LEX, we consider ourselves pretty good at making people feel appreciated and well cared for, so we’ve got some suggestions for making this special day as outstanding as mom.

Brunch at Lexington Brass

Head to our very own Lexington Brass for Mother’s Day brunch specials. Try the perfectly balanced crab avocado benedict or the truly decadent stuffed banana creme brulee. Be sure to round out any dish with a mimosa or two.

Lexington Brass: 517 Lexington Ave., 212-392-5976

Bliss Spa Retreat

Bliss is a well-known skincare line, but leave it to the magic of NYC to turn the beauty company into a luxurious spa. With a full range of services to calm and pamper mom, discover the house special Blissage or the buzzed-about Triple Oxygen Treatment. Don’t want to stray far from the hotel? The perfect NYC spa day can be had right here at 48LEX with our in-room cocktails and mask treatments.

Flowers from Gardenia Organic

Flowers are an obvious choice for Mother’s Day, but what about psychic flowers? This one-of-a-kind floral studio in Chelsea boasts a “psychic florist” who promises just the right combination of scents and auras. Give mom the gift of therapeutic relaxation, based on whatever details or moods you provide with your order.
