When it’s time to pamper Mom on her special day, we can’t help thinking about luxurious, sumptuous, relaxing spas. Here are a few ways to make a spa treatment or spa day even more extraordinary for the one who has always loved you.
A Mani-Pedi Surprise
A mama-daughter manicure is a can’t-miss spa or salon treat for every mother and grandmother and aunt and…!! From picking the latest polish colors together to a soothing massage for your tired tootsies, we think you’ll enjoy every minute of the relaxing and beautifying rituals that make this treatment a favorite. And just when your mom thinks her special time is ending, surprise her with a beautiful bracelet to set off her manicure or an adorable pair of flip flops to show off her pedicure.
The New & Unepected
Many of our mothers–and grandmothers– have enjoyed a manicure or Swedish massage at a favorite spa or salon. This Mother’s Day surprise her with a treatment or experience she hasn’t tried before. Soothing facials or body wraps. Silky scrubs to make her skin glow. An aromatherapy massage. Professional makeup. The possibilities are endless and your mom will thank you for reconnecting her with her glamorous self.
Home Sweet Home
Mothers are busy and sometimes it’s hard to find time to travel to the spa. You can make a big impact with an at-home spa day, and she will know her clever daughter took the time to plan and prepare a personal escape. We searched the Spafinder archives and found these 17 luscious DYI spa and beauty recipes to concoct and enjoy at home–and after all the pampering, you can give her a favorite to take home. And you can ask special relatives or friends to join the party. Start with a little bubbly, pass some yummy snacks, show your guests their spa treats and let the fun begin!
Who Says a Couple’s Massage Is Only For Couples?
A couple’s massage conjures up Valentine’s Day and romantic experiences, but think about it: you and mom have been a couple since the day she welcomed you to her world. This Mother’s Day surprise her with the unexpected treat of enjoying a massage with her daughter. Almost all spas can accommodate couple’s treatments and you can make the gift of spa even more special by booking it at a posh hotel or resort that offers luxurious before and after treatment amenities.
Take Her On A Dream Getaway
If this is the year you’d like to splurge and treat your mom to an experience she’ll never forget, explore these memorable spa days. Or take her on a once-in-a-lifetime spa holiday here or across the globe where you can rejuvenate, relax and recharge together.
