One thing is for sure – there are a lot of great local Las Vegas businesses ready to wine, dine and pamper your mother. So do your research and start booking those reservations and purchasing those gift certificates now.

Hire Mom a Personal Chef
Mom’s probably made hundreds, if not thousands of meals for you. Why not return the favor with a personal chef to prepare an amazing meal for mom and the entire family? Personal chefs have become all the rage with people who want to stay home but still enjoy a unique “dining out” experience.
Las Vegas has lots of personal chef options, but don’t wait if you want one for Mother’s Day. If you’re not able to find one available on Mother’s Day, most will offer gift certificates and options for alternative dates. Remember, sometimes it’s the thought that counts most, and she will appreciate a world-class meal prepared at home by some of the best chefs in the area.
Here are some highly-rated personal chef options for you to consider. Some may have a minimum number of participants, so be sure to ask before booking.
Chef @ Your Home offers a full complement of at-home services including cocktail parties, weddings, dinner parties, and an intimate dinner for mom and/or the entire family.
If you haven’t heard about Chef Lisa, you might know her as the winner of Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games (Season 6 Episode 1). In the Las Vegas area, she is known as a talented personal chef and culinary artist, specializing in creative cuisine, uniquely catered events, and pop-up dining experiences.
Cozymeal is one of the top national marketplaces in the U.S. and Canada featuring culinary experiences and products, including cooking classes, private chef experiences, team building activities, cookware and more.

Give Mom a Break with House Cleaning/Maid Service
One thing most people can agree on is that weekly house cleaning chores are not one of our favorite tasks. After a busy day at work or preparing for the weekend, the last thing most of us want to do is spend the day dusting or mopping floors.
Mom probably feels the same way.
A maid or cleaning service may not be the most glamorous Mother’s Day gift, but it may end up being one of the most appreciated by mom. Las Vegas offers many house cleaning service options for weekly or one-time deep cleaning. Here are a couple of highly-rated businesses you might want to consider.

Superb Maids guarantees 100% satisfaction for all their services around the Las Vegas area – including Summerlin, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Enterprise, Spring Valley, Rhodes Ranch, Anthem, Mountain Edge and Downtown.

Be sure to ask about their “Deep Cleaning Special”, which includes a full list of services at an affordable price.
Treat Mom to Sunday Brunch
As you probably know, Mother’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. The most important thing you can do is decide where you want to go right now, and then contact the restaurant to see if they accept reservations. If not, and you want to go to a certain restaurant, get there early or expect a long wait due to limited seating in many places.
There are plenty of restaurants serving Mother’s Day dinner or brunch, but here are some of the more popular places to go in the Las Vegas area (and away from the strip).
