To be honest Mother's Day gifts can range from being very sentimental and personal, maybe handmade, to something as simple as a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I personally, like the latter with a touch of personality by adding her favorites with a personalized card. Here are some #MOMAPPROVED gift ideas.
Since we're already on the topic of flowers, of course a gorgeous bouquet is always an option. It's a great way to make her feel extra special without breaking the bank. One of my fave services to use is 1-800-FLOWERS. Why?
- they're super reliable
- great customer service
- fresh flowers
- bouquet comes with vase & special instructions
- international delivery
- 10% cash back on Ebates!!
Another really amazing gift that doesn't break the bank too much is a spa day! Who doesn't love a great massage, facial, pedicure ... the full package?! There is no better gift than the gift of self-care, especially for moms who don't usually have time for themselves. One of my favorite spas to visit in the city is Haven Spa. It's amazingly affordable for the wonderful service you get. Last year I had the opportunity to take my mom for a full massage and facial package which was just UNBELIEVABLE!
Unfortunately, I won't be able to see my mom for this year's celebration but I thought I'd share the great news anyway. Haven Spa recently launched a new service called the Harmony massage which I just had to try out! This experience consists of sound therapy, aromatherapy and Ayurvedic massage which is basically all about centering your mind, body and soul. If you're someone that is interested in energy and chakras then this is THE perfect service for you.
A little more about the massage... they start with tuning forks focused on your vital pressure points to restore your body's electromagnetic field. Then moving into the massage portion, with a focus on the important energy points throughout the body to build and balance chakra flow and finally, finish off with grounding and uplifting aromas to release emotional burden and restore harmony hence the name Harmony Massage!
I definitely felt at ease, centered and super relaxed after my visit. I felt like I was on top of my game in every aspect of my life at that point, it was almost like being high on positivity. It's only $180 for 80 minutes and on top of that, they have a special discount for Mothers Day! Such a steal, totally recommend!!
These are literally my go-to gifts for Mother's Day and you really can't go wrong. What gifts do you recommend?
