Make Mom’s Day with These Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is only a couple days away, which means, if you haven’t already, it’s time to think of ways to brighten that special lady’s life. Rest assured there are plenty of ways to surprise mom with an apartment-friendly gift without having to travel too far from your Poplar Ridge Apartment. Fort Wayne has plenty of to offer for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, here are just a few to consider:


Who doesn’t love fresh cut flowers? You can pre-order from a local florist or hit up a nearby grocery store. Fresh Market, just down the street from Poplar Ridge Apartments, always has a beautiful selection of flowers and pop-up cards for every occasion. Just don’t wait until the last minute or you may be out of luck! You can’t go wrong with a bouquet of roses or an assortment of wildflowers. They look pretty and smell just as nice.

Scent Diffusers

Speaking of scent, why not consider a candle or a diffuser. They’re both a great way to fill the apartment with a subtle aroma. A pleasant smelling home is always inviting. You can find diffusers at most nearby stores including Meijer and Target. Check out this great selection of diffusers at Target.


Another way to make a home more…well..homey.. is to add framed art. You could blow up an image of a family portrait or a print from her favorite artist. Michael’s in Jefferson Pointe has a great selection of frames and framed art that your mom is sure to love!

Home-Cooked Meal

Are you culinarily inclined? If so, you might consider making mom a special meal. Who wouldn’t want a night off from the kitchen? Just be sure to do the clean-up, too! If cooking isn’t your forte, you might consider a restaurant delivery service like Waiter on the Way. Everyone wins that way!

Spa Time

Maybe Mom needs some “me time.” You might consider a gift certificate to a local spa. Luckily, Poplar Ridge Apartments is surrounded by several! Check out Massage Envy or The Woodhouse Day Spa and treat your mom to a relaxing massages or mani-pedi! Every mom deserves to be pampered, after all!

Something Unique

Fort Wayne has plenty of great boutiques perfect to pick up a unique item that fits your mom’s style and personality.  A couple favorites are Opal & Ruby Gift Emporium and Fancy & Staples. Also, check out the Fort Wayne Farmer’s Market this Saturday for some locally-made gifts.

A Day on the Town

Spend the day exploring the many great shops and restaurants in downtown Fort Wayne. Mother’s Day Downtown is Sunday, May 8 from 10-4. Free trolleys will connect you to great retail locations, restaurants, and Mother’s Day themed activities around Downtown.


If money is an issue, don’t get discouraged. Sometimes the best gift of all is the gift of time. Carve out some time to watch her favorite show with her or just relax. Try to be fully present and stay off your devices.

We hope your Mother’s Day is as lovely as your mother!
