What do you get for the woman who gave you life, love and sacrificed so much? It’s always hard to decide, but spa gifts are one way to help give back the love, and that any mother will appreciate. We have some last minute ideas for the mothers who are pressed for time, prefer to spa at home or can’t get enough of luxury.
For the mother who still packs so much into her day that she finds it hard to slow down, the 30-minute Mini-Escape treatments at Haven Spa are the best. Choose from the Massage ME, focusing on one troubled area, the Scrub ME, a body scrub, Clarify ME, a basic facial with light extractions, or Manicure or Pedicure ME. No matter what you decide, Haven Spa provides excellent service and never skimps on quality no matter how short the treatment.

If going to a spa is just not her thing, your mother will love the Rejuvalite MD Anti-aging Light Therapy System, by Trophy Skin. The light only needs to be used for a few minutes a day, three times a week to begin seeing results. After trying the Rejuvalite a few times I began to notice a reduction in wrinkles.

For a luxurious spa treat, The Peninsula Spa has an indulgent Mother’s Day Escape that includes a 90-minute Holistic treatment of choice, a glass of champagne spa cuisine lunch, and use of the fitness center pool and classes for the day. Any of the treatments at The Peninsula are impressive, and your mom will feel like royalty. http://www.peninsula.com/newyork.

If you want to add to this already spectacular gift, include one of the Medical Beauty Research products from The Best collection. I recently tried some of these products and was impressed with the entire line. The Best Neck & Bust really transforms this hard to change area, but every product is superb.
Available only at The Peninsula, and through http://www.mbrskincare.com.
If you are looking for some great spa products for the mother who likes to spa at home, try the Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial. This is truly a facial while you sleep, and you wake up with brighter, more hydrated skin.
Available at Sephora.com.
Candles are also a wonderful spa at home gift, and one that I love is the Pinrose Sun Saint Candle. I am obsessed with the coconut and sea salt scent of this candle. It even smells fantastic when it isn’t lit. Be sure and wrap it well if you don’t want to give away the contents of your gift before it’s opened.

Instytutum skin care products would also be a special treat for any mother. The Lifting Cream is rich, and a little goes a long way towards hydrating and smoothing lines and wrinkles over time. I also notice an instant plumping and glow to my face when I use it.
