Spa Gifts Galore!
The recession, bills, soccer practice, and music recitals, oh my! Help mom relax. Instead of sending her to the spa, why not let her have an at-home spa treatment all year round. Keep her pampered and feeling gorgeous by assembling a great at-home spa package for her! Why spend hundreds of dollars on gift certificate for a one-time trip to the salon when you can give a gift that keeps on giving? Here are some simple easy at-home spa items you can include in your gift to mom!
Massagers: Massages are an essential part of the spa experience. What better way for her to relax after a hard day's work than with a relaxing foot bath? Chasing baby around the house can really take a toll on the balls and archs of the feet. A massaging foot bath with jet air bubbles, like the ever-popular Conair Relaxing Foot Bath, gently massages the tender muscles in the arches while the warm water relieves tension pain. And it won't break your budget either. Does your mom suffer from dry skin? Consider getting her a paraffin bath that helps soothe muscle tension and joint pain in addition to hydrating and moisturizing dry skin. To top off the experience, consider a neck massager that she can use whenever she needs tension relieved. It is light and portable so she can bring it wherever, whenever she needs a massage!
Facial Steamers: Clay masks and extractions are commonly preformed during spa treatments to help cleanse and beautify the face. Help mom detoxify with an electronic facial steamer. These compact machines help unclog pores and detoxify the skin; giving your mom something to truly glow about!
Bath and Shower Gift Set: No spa experience is complete without a long relaxing bubble bath. Bubble bath soap, shower gel, bath salts, lotions and much more. It’s hard not to relax and feel pampered right at home with all the spa essentials that come in. We recommend soft scents such as lavender, chamomile, and herbal to promote clarity and relaxation. After a dip in these scents, she will sure to feel relaxed and refreshed! And make sure she has a fluffy bath robe to slip into afterward!

Personalized Jewelry: Many jewelers are now offering creative and beautiful mother-daughter or mother-son pendants to commemorate the special bond you two share. Another subtle way of weaseling yourself into your mother's jewelry (and heart!) are personalized necklace pendants featuring your name, initials, or the first letter of your name. What better way to show you off to her friends than with an elegant "B" or "L" on her neck?
Children's Birthstone Necklace: Another piece to remind her of the wonderful children she has. Get her a necklace or bracelet featuring all the birthstones of her children. If you are an only child (or don't like to share), just get her a pendant with your birthstone. It's sure to wow her friends!
