Mother’s Day on Anna Maria Island

Mother’s Day on Anna Maria Island

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend! Now, don’t panic if you haven’t made any big plans yet. There is still plenty of time to give that wonderful Mom or Mother-figure in your life the perfect day on Anna Maria Island. Here are some ideas for how to have an extra special Mother’s Day on AMI.

Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed? Always a good idea. Getting breakfast to go to eat in bed and not have to clean up a mess after? An even better idea. Wake up early to grab your Mom some treats from The Donut Experiment or a sandwich from Paradise Bagels. The perfect way to fuel up for your day in paradise!

Make a Shell Necklace

If you’ve got little ones, a really fun way for them to get involved in personalizing a gift for Mom is to have them craft it! Have them look for shells with holes in them and then simply string the shells onto your necklace material of choice! Such a sweet way for them to get hands-on and budget-friendly with their gifting!

Sunset Picnic


One of the greatest blessings of Anna Maria Island is experiencing our beautiful sunsets. No matter what weather the day brings you can almost always promise a spectacular sunset every evening on the Gulf Coast. Pack up some snacks and sandwiches and enjoy an evening picnic at sunset! A peaceful way to end any day.

Treat to a nice dinner

Leave the cooking and hosting up to someone else! There are numerous incredible restaurants on the island to satisfy any person’s taste. Try The Waterfront! Or pop over to Cortez and try the new Slicker’s Eatery – they take reservations and your Mom will be thrilled with your planning ahead!

Don’t Forget Flowers

Mother's DAy

No surprise here: You can never go wrong with flowers! It’s Spring and the possibilities to brighten a day are always made better with some beautiful fresh flowers. Check out some local florists like Blooms by the Beach and pick out (or design!) something Mom will love.

Spa Day

C’mon. She deserves it! Book that appointment and help Mom chill out in paradise with one of our awesome spas!
