Spa-licious Gifts for Mom

Spa-licious Gifts for Mom
© 2009 Catherine Pittman

All women like jewelry, flowers and chocolates, but nothing is more unique or priceless than a day at a spa. There is nothing quite like an afternoon of being totally pampered and spoiled with facials, pedicures, manicures and massages with scented oils. It is a "spa-licious" gift for every mom.  While moms love their children with all of their heart, a day at the spa is a gift that fulfills the need every mother has: a few tranquil moments of time cocooned in a pool of relaxation without interruption.

If your mother is like so many of today’s modern women who constantly scurry from one place to another, shuttling kids around and always on the go, then she will appreciate a special day of pampering to sooth her worries away.

There are plenty of day or weekend spas available to spend a relaxing time in a white robe and slippers with lots of pampering. Spas offer a variety of services such as body scrubs, hot stone massages, manicure and pedicures, facials, steam rooms, and luxurious body oils that make the skin sing.

You can never go wrong when you include yourself in the gift by treating both you and mom. Many spa packages include lunch or offer specials for two. There are spas available to fit every budget. You don’t have to find a spa that provides it all if your budget doesn’t allow you to splurge for the big package. 

The gift of a wonderful facial, manicure or pedicure is just as appreciated as the “big package.”  Daughters can treat themselves and their mom to a facial and lunch that won’t break the piggy bank--- and you’ll find the experience is a great way to bond.

If your mother is one of those moms who is impossible to get out of the house, then try bringing the pampering to her.  Massage therapists, manicurists and pedicurists can be found who will come to her home to give a little pampering care. 

If a spa or massage therapist is out of your budget, there are many wonderful home spa gift baskets and kits that offer a collection of pampering products to tickle the senses.

Gift baskets are also an easy gift to make for kids and dad to surprise mom.  The home spa treatment is just what the mom ordered, along with a few quiet hours from the outside world and kids.  The typical gift basket includes bathing products, rejuvenating clay masks or facial peels, body lotions, bath oils and candles and towels to help create a "spa-licious atmosphere. "

The most important thing of all is to give mom Mother’s Day off.  Treat her to an in-home spa and dinner at her favorite restaurant or prepare and cook a special meal of all her favorite things. If there are children around, take charge of them for the day to give her a well-deserved moment of time. Give her this day as peaceful downtime, and it’ll recharge and re-energize her.

Whether her day at the spa is home made or a gift to a day or weekend spa, give her a spa-licious day of pampering to let her know you love and appreciate all she does.
