White Elephant – Nantucket, MA

Nantucket’s Brant Point Grill’s Mother’s Day Brunch is $85 for adults, $39 for kids. Combine your brunch with a stay at White Elephant and enjoy special Hot Dates Cool Rates, starting at $195 per night.

 

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort – St. Lucia

Instead of a box of chocolate, give a chocolate making experience at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort. The class entails learning about how cocoa is grown and what cocoa varieties make the very best chocolate. Participants learn how to temper chocolate to make molded creations and rich, dark chocolate truffles. They also learn how to make traditional, St Lucian Cocoa Tea and best of all… they get to taste and take home the fruits of their labors.
