You can order a beautiful bouquet of flowers online and have it delivered to your hotel.

Visiting Central Park is also a nice option: take a lovely walk on The Mall or book a carriage ride.

If you want to buy your mum a present that she can enjoy right away, consider booking her in for a manicure, massage or facial at one of the beauty salons in New York. Make sure you book an appointment in advance because these salons can be quite busy on Mother’s Day.
