More and more moms are sporting ink these days. Why not treat mom to her first tattoo or add to her existing artwork. Check out Lynn at Summer’s End Studio, a local mom-owned tattoo parlor in downtown Durham. She has her MFA in illustration and has been tattooing from her own shop for 9-years. Visit www.summersendstudios.com/ for details. *Mom tested and approved. She’s my tattoo artist!*
2. Concert Tickets
Does your gal love music with a rustic slant? Does a concert in a meadow appeal to your romantic side? Then The Word Barn concert series in Newfields is the place for you. Might I suggest Kat Wright’s show on May 29 or The Midnight Wrens on June 5. Plus, The Word Barn is locally owned and operated by mom & dad duo Sarah and Ben Anderson. www.thewordbarn.com
3. Sunset Kayak Tour
Being on the water at sunset in the summer is nothing short of divine. Create a magical evening (without the kiddos) on the water with your lovely wife while Seven Rivers Paddling does all the guiding (you still have to paddle) on their Sunset Paddle. They paddle out of Newmarket and Portsmouth. This local mom and dad owned biz is also family friendly and you can get your children on the water too. I also recommend the Seal Tour with Plum Island Kayak on the Merrimack River in Newburyport.
4. Goat Yoga
Located in Nottingham, Jenness Farm offers yoga with goats. Still plenty of stretching, balance and relaxation – just with the added cuteness of goats. Visit the farm’s website www.jennessfarm.com to buy tickets as well as some lovely homemade soap, made with goat’s milk, of course!
Yup, I said it. Flowers. And you’re thinking that is too mundane and your partner is worth more than a generic gift of flowers. Well, friend, I am here to tell you that you need to shop better for flowers. Try these local flower shops and you’ll be amazed at their unique and beautiful bouquets.
