This Mother’s Day, shower her in love and appreciation with CityCenterDC’s curated list of personalized gifts and unforgettable experiences.
Is there anything our moms can’t do? They anticipate our every single need, they inspire us to be our best selves and they always offer sage advice in the moment you need it most. Between the generous matriarch, the doting grandma and the honorary mother figure in your life, there are so many people to celebrate this Mother’s Day.
Here at CityCenterDC, we’re primed to deliver her a much-deserved dose of gratitude. Want to go the gift route? There are plenty of covetable accessories and once-in-a-lifetime jewelry pieces to be had. If you’re aiming for an exceptional experience, consider a sculpting yoga class, delectable brunch date or her pick from a rosé menu set atop the Conrad with dazzling views of the city. Read on for more Mother’s Day ideas, ones that’ll totally have her feeling the love.
These candy apple-red accessories from Carolina Herrera are the building blocks of a chic capsule wardrobe.
There’s no such thing as too much gold — add to her jewelry stack with a celestial-inspired piece from David Yurman.
Embroidered with an abstract rose on sophisticated cotton canvas, this bucket bag nods to a countryside escape in Provence.
A classic timepiece, imbued with the richness of Breitling’s aviation history, makes for a meaningful gift.
Part of the much-adored Gucci Beloved line, the GG Marmont comes splashed in a fresh shade of French blue.
Shades of springtime green are a certain win in her wardrobe, like this sage-hued, linen-cotton blend scarf adorned with florals.
Ask any mom and she’ll say that the best gift to receive is one of quality time. That’s why, come May 8th, we suggest making a brunch reservation at Estuary, an elevated farm-to-table restaurant out of the Conrad. With a menu featuring A.M. classics and more novel takes (like the savory duck confit Benedict), it’s a meal she won’t soon forget.
Another thoughtful option is treating her to a late-afternoon libation at Summit, the now-open Rooftop at Conrad. Special to Mother’s Day is a curated rosé menu, so she can enjoy a crisp glass of wine while taking in the stunning views of the city. Plus, all moms will have the chance to fashion their own fragrant bouquet as a take-home treat.

Looking for a little motivation to get your sweat on? Join us for Toned Up Tuesdays, a new outdoor series of yoga-infused workouts being held at CityCenterDC. Every Tuesday in May starting at 6PM, CorePower Yoga will lead a 45-minute class out in the open air at The Plaza. It’s a chance to move your body, challenge your abilities and find a little peace in the process. Best yet, the classes are completely free and open to the public — all you need to bring is your own mat and water to stay hydrated between poses.

There’s nothing like witnessing the elegance and pure physicality of ballet before one’s eyes. With The Washington Ballet’s Dance For All program — a city-wide, community engagement initiative bringing the joy of dance to the streets of D.C. — that experience becomes reality at CityCenter. The Plaza is a wonderful setting for our dancers, in that it’s colorful, welcoming, and bustling — exactly the kinds of positive, energetic vibes that bring out the best in artists. With our acclaimed pink lantern installation serving as the stunning backdrop, we’ll be treated to three nights of free performances by on-the-rise choreographers starting June 3rd through the 4th. Audiences can watch a free program of classic pas de deux and spirited contemporary pieces performed by world-class dancers with the company. The performances are accessible to audiences of all ages, including those who may want to experience ballet for the first time. Seating is first come, first served, so get there early (well before the 6PM start time!) to get the perfect view.
