I’ll be on the noon news with Karie Dozer today at 12:50 talking about my favorite deals for your weekend!

Here’s the rundown:

Today (May 10th) is National Public Gardens day! Click here to print off a voucher for two free admissions to the Desert Botanical Garden (good today). The Butterfly exhibit is included!

Walgreens is offering a TOTALLY FREE 8×10 collage print with promo code COLLAGE4YOU. Click here for more information, this is a $4.49 value. Buy a frame and you’ve got a nice Mother’s Day gift.

Speaking of Mother’s Day gifts, if you really want to treat mom, click here to pick up half price spa treatments to the Bliss spa at the W Scottsdale. I’ve heard this place is amazing!

If you still need to pick up a card for mom, click here to print off a coupon for $5 off your $10 Hallmark purchase.

Several valley restaurants are giving mom a free meal or treat this weekend.

Head to the Sweet Tooth Fairy on Saturday and mom can snag a FREE cupcake. Click here for more information.

Ikea is giving mom a free breakfast and cup of coffee on Sunday before 11 AM in their cafe.

Humble Pie is giving mom a free pizza on Mother’s Day. Here’s the deal they e-mailed me:  “Free pizza for all moms on Mother’s Day .Not valid w/ other offers dine in only , other restrictions may apply.” You may find (especially if you go for lunch) that it may be a better deal to take advantage of the kids eat free option!

Kelly’s at Southbridge is giving mom a free entree with any purchase on Sunday.

Stop into TCBY where mom will enjoy a FREE cup or cone this Mother’s Day! Click here for more information, no purchase required.

If mom’s a golfer, she’ll play for free Sunday at 6 AZ courses. The Raven Golf Club, McDowell Mountain Golf Club, Eagle Mountain Golf Club, ASU Karsten Course, Palm Valley Golf Club, and the Sedona Golf Resort are participating. Click here for more information.

If mom feels like swimming on Sunday, she’ll get into the Big Surf Waterpark in Tempe for free! The rest of the family will pay half price when they bring in 5 non-perishable food items. Click here for more information.

One of my favorite weeks of the year, Arizona Restaurant Week, is BACK May 18th-27th. Click here to check out all of the participating restaurants. This is your chance to enjoy a delicious, three course meal at one (or more) of the BEST restaurants in town for a fraction of the normal price. This is exactly the kind of deal I love, you’ll “live life BETTER for less”! You’ll pay $30 or $40 per person, depending on the restaurant (some menus include wine).  I highly recommend making reservations at the restaurant of your choice now as they go quickly.

Arizona Restaurant Week sent over three $50 gift cards for lucky Alicia’s Deals in AZ readers. Note: The $50 gift cards DO NOT need to be redeemed during Arizona Restaurant Week!

The first is to Coup de Tartes, a lovely BYOB restaurant. You will love the food and the romantic atmosphere.

The second $50 gift card is to District American Kitchen and Wine Bar. I had dessert there with friends last month (on a Taste It Tour) and was really impressed. I can’t wait to go back for a full dinner!

The final $50 gift card is to the new Salty Sow restaurant. This is owned by the same people who brought you Z’ Tejas, Eddie V’s, and Wildfish, so I’m expecting great things!
