2022 ILLINOISouth Mother's Day Gift Guide

Posted on 04/20/2022 by Andy Waterman

Moms make the world go around. It can be difficult to find a gift that shows our appreciation for everything they do for us on a day-to-day basis.  We compiled a list of some of our favorite items and things to do in Southern Illinois to help you find a way to celebrate and say thank you to the special women in your life.

Illinois Country Harvest, Near Prairie du Rocher

If your loved one is a fan of flowers, this is the place for you! This farm resides on 12 acres of land and is located only 45 minutes outside of St. Louis. This unique and quaint experience allows you to stroll the fields and pick a beautiful bouquet of flowers to take home in a fabric-wrapped quart jar. Why only get them flowers once when you can get them a Fresh Flower Harvest Bouquet Subscription for only $75. This pass can be used by one person for 6 separate visits, for 6 people during one visit, or any combination of the two. Individual reservations can also be made.

Illinois Country Harvest

Irene Vineyard, Oblong

This family-owned winery is in the secluded countryside. Irene’s Vineyard is located on 2 acres of land and produces vines of 6 different varieties. They offer 10 wines ranging from dry, semi-sweet, sweet, and fruit, so there is something for every wine drinker. We are big believers that wine pairs well with pizza, especially their hand-made pizzas which are available Friday-Sunday.

St. Nicholas Brewing Company

St. Nicholas Brewing Company is the perfect place to hang out on Mother’s Day. Their brews are made on-site by their brewmaster, allowing them to perfect their flavors.  They have locations in both Du Quoin and Chester. From their burgers to their brews, there is something for everyone.

If you’re wanting to go out for a nice dinner then Popeyes Chop House is the place for you. Their food is packed with flavor. They even have a gluten-free menu. You can’t go wrong with getting a steak.

Sweet Katie Bee’s Bakery Café, O’Fallon

Sweet Katie Bee’s is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat or a sweet treat. They use eggs from a local farm for their hashbrown-crusted quiches, and you can taste how fresh they are. If dessert is what you’re wanting, then you chose the right place. They have everything from cookies to donuts, cheesecake to cupcakes, and much more. They also carry gluten-free and keto desserts.



Shopping in Lebanon

Who doesn’t love a shopping trip? We love shopping in Lebanon because their brick street offers not only historic charm, but it also has great stores. Browse the antique shops or try on some clothes in the boutiques. Be sure to check the store hours before planning your trip.
