Eat and be merry.
Dining out is a great way to re-connect and catch up. Whether it’s brunch, lunch or dinner (or all three!), take mom out for a delicious meal at one of our many Rewards partner restaurants including Milestones, Montana's and Swiss Chalet. And make sure you leave room for dessert because you can grab a treat at Marble Slab Creamery or Kernels Popcorn, or top it all off with a stop at Blenz Coffee.
Explore local attractions.
There are plenty of local attractions that will interest mom and the kids (no matter their age) and give you a chance to hang out as a family. Walking through the Vancouver Art Gallery or Museum of Vancouver is a great way to soak in some really cool exhibits and gives you plenty to talk about with one another. Victoria Butterfly Gardens or Capilano Suspension Bridge are unique experiences that will have mom and the whole family saying, “Remember that Mother’s Day that we… “
Rest, relax and repeat.
Sometimes, words aren’t needed when connecting with one another. Experiencing quiet and serene moments together can also create a bond between you and that special mom in your life. Get some pampering with facials and massages at Scandinave Spa, Sparkling Hill or the Fairmont. You can also give her a gift of special soaps, lotions and scents from Escents to keep the spa-experience going at home.
Treat your mom to a day of shopping for clothing, jewelry or technology at shops like Reitmans, Paris Jewellers or The Source where Members receive in-store discounts by showing your Membership Card. You can also let her choose a gift online with Sephora, Indigo or The Body Shop. When you shop online with your BCAA Membership Card, you’ll also be treating yourself by earning CAA Dollars®. And if mom wants to keep the shopping and savings going, give her the gift of a BCAA Membership for herself!
Hollywood it up.
As simple as it sounds, catching a movie with our families can sometimes be difficult for many of us with busy schedules. Getting immersed in a great plot and cinematography is a fun way to spend time together on Mother’s Day. BCAA Members can save at Landmark Cinemas and IMAX Victoria. If you want something live, you can see real celebrities skating at a Stars On Ice show—Members save 25% on select seats.
