Day spa certificate
Every mom wants to be pampered, and a day at the spa is the ultimate! Most day spas have special Mother's Day packages that include massages, manicures, and other special beauty treatments. The best part of going to a spa is the feeling that you're being taken care of. And for someone who's always doing the caring, it's easy to see why that's a great change of pace.
Bath products gift basket
At the end of a long day, it's great to settle into a warm, fragrant bath. Feeling pampered at home is easy with some favorite bubble bath, talcum powder, and moisturizer. Add a few fragrant candles, and you've got an instant escape! It's no wonder that a gift basket of bath products always brings a smile to a tired mom's face.
Breakfast in bed
It may sound like a cliche, but breakfast in bed for a tired and busy mom is very pampering indeed. Add special touches like a fresh flower, a small scented candle, or pretty seashells in a small bowl to the breakfast tray. And be sure to serve all her favorites (no dieting allowed on this day). It doesn't get any better than this!
