Every Mother’s Day, my mother also gifts me with a small token of love and a note that says “Happy Mother’s Day to you…if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be a mother!” That being said, I bring you May’s roundup, dedicated to fabulously feminine Spa gifts for your mom, yourself or something you both can share.

Every mother’s tired tootsies could use a soak this Mother’s Day. For Feets Sake is a four-step spa treatment that will recharge your overworked feet. Infused with invigorating ingredients like Arnica Witch Hazel, Tea Tree Oil and Mint, this is the perfect way to keep your feet and mom’s feet looking and feeling good between pedis this Spring.

My sensitive skin is genetic. So both my mom and I are always looking out for the latest in natural body washes. JASON’s Antioxidant Cranberry gently cleanses and delights the senses without skin irritation. To lock in the moisture and fabulous scent, try the Cranberry Hand & Body Lotion post-shower. Starting your day off organically with ingredients like Green Tea Extract, Vitamin E and Cranberry Oil, you’ll smell delicious and feel healthier to boot.

Bring the Spa to your home, with Yankee Candle’s Aromatherapy Line. There are three different options to choose from, whether it’s relaxation, energy or stress relief you seek. The “True Bliss Lift Your Sprits” candle was my favorite. Infused with Sage and White Tea, this is the perfect way to chase away the blues and recharge. The long lasting blissful scent permeates the room for hours after you burn it.
