Give Mom an At-Home Spa Day this Mother's Day
Looking for the perfect thing to give the woman who spent her life working for your happiness? Give her a spa she can enjoy any time, and in the comfort of her own home!
If you're lucky enough to have mom in town, plan a night for her to come over. Grab a bottle of wine, an old favorite film (me and my mom always watch The Man in the Iron Mask, A Knight's Tale, or Pretty Woman together), and some spa goodies to treat yourselves.
But, if you're like me and live far away from mom, you can always buy mom some pampering supplies and wrap everything in pretty tissue paper and mail it.
For her at-home spa basics, give mom what she needs for a manicure and pedicure, a facial, and a perfect hot shower.
Manicure and Pedicure:
Remove any old nail polish, buff and file your nail (I use an emery board that shapes, smooths, buffs and polishes), moisturize with a nice hand lotion (making sure to wipe excess lotion off of nails), then color. Always use a base and top coat for a long-lasting manicure.
For mom, I recommend QVC's nails inc.: The Backstage Collection;" (I also recommend you pick up a set for yourself!). This collection is great. It includes Abbey Road - a silver glitter polish (perfect for a night out, or for mom to spice up her look!), Stratford - a super stylish metallic rose gold color (great for a girls day out shopping!), and Porchester Square - a nice muted mushroom color (my personal favorite from this collection, it's clean enough for the office, and sexy enough for a dinner date).
Buy mom Mary Kay's Timewise Moisture Renewing Gel (since it's Mary Kay, you know mom will love it). This mask is a great ten minute moisturizing mask, or you can even sleep with it on for a fresh morning! With any mask, cleanse your face with a gentle facial wash first, apply toner, and then mask it up!
Firstly, you'll need a luxurious shampoo and conditioner set. I've been using Philip B's Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo and Conditioner for the past month and it really is luxurious! This set has a great formula that makes hair shiny and frizz free! Seriously! As in, I don't have to put product in my hair and my fiancé will even comment on how gorgeous it is. It's soft and makes me feel like a model! It's worth every penny!
Next, get mom a soap or body wash that fits her personality!
If she's a girly girl, I recommend a sweet smelling body wash, such as Bath & Body Works' Rome Honeysuckle Amore Shower Gel. It smells amazing and cleans without making your skin feel dried out.
Or, if you're mom is more of a naturalist, i recommend OLIVITA Artisan Turkish Bath Soap. It's all natural, smells amazing, and leaves your skin soft and healthy.
Finish up with a wonderful body scrub and body butter.
If your mom is a fan of blowouts, than QVC's Drybar Hot Toddy Restorative Cream is the perfect addition to her at-home spa gift. This cream helps protect hair from heat, leaving it silky and shiny!
And if you really want to spoil mom, you can't go wrong with adding a fluffy white bathrobe!
It sounds so amazing, I think that may just be how I'm going to spend this Friday night.
