What do Beyoncé Knowles, Demi Lovato, Mischa Barton, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Venus Williams all have in common? They all bought homes for their moms. For celebrities and the ultra-wealthy, buying Mom a home for Mother’s Day sounds like a doable gift. For everyone else, it doesn’t hurt to have a #inspo list, because you never know ... those singing and tennis lessons may eventually pay off. For the next celebrity superstar, here are five homes we think moms would love.
For the Movie-Going Mom
Whether it’s to binge on Netflix, watch the Cannes Film Festival prize winners, or simply enjoy the best movies for Mother’s Day, this home movie theater is designed to look like the real thing with the added comfort of home. You can expect no lines at the concession stand, and the popcorn is on the house.
For the Spa-and-Sauna Mom
Soaking in heated water or sweating it out in a steamy room can be the cure to many ills. It’s ultimately a relaxing and rejuvenating way to begin or end Mom’s busy day. Certificates and gift cards to the local spas are great, but there’s no greater luxury than having a spa in your own home with an amazing view. Plan for the perfect at-home spa day with these ideas, too.
For the Equestrian Mom
Spending leisure time in grace and style atop a well-trained and beloved horse is what equestrian riding is all about. It requires balance, skill, training and the special relationship between horse and rider to become a champion. No doubt you would be proud of your mom if she had her own equestrian home to turn practice into perfection.
For the Book-Loving Mom
The best places to read should be comfortable, quiet, well-lit and warm. This reading room has all of these and plenty of space to let the imagination fall into the story of a great book. Need help picking a book for Mom? Here’s a list of some of the best books for Mother’s Day.
For the Wine Connoisseur Mom
A good bottle of wine is a great gift for a mom who enjoys the finer things in life. Even better, would be a home with a wine cellar to develop a collection along with a taste of some of the best wines in the world. Here is a fine selection of wines to give as a gift this Mother’s Day.
