Moms have a tough job. Keeping the kids fed, clothed, housed and educated while trying to not to lose themselves in the chaos. As we mature some of us have our own kids. Others are aunts and uncles. And yet others are parents to furry-babies as I am.
Nine years ago I adopted a day old kitten. An itty-bitty-stripey-kitty. Bottle feeding every couple of hours. Encouraging it to go potty. Protecting a frail tiny feline. My husband said the kitten set off all my maternal instincts. Except I had a helpless baby for less than a year.
Most moms have decades of worry, and work ahead of them.
Did you know that Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mothers day, wanted to end Mothers day? She lamented how mothers day evolved into a purchased card rather than a well thought out letter. So how do we recognize the hard work of those you mothered and raised us?
How can you give a gift to celebrate moms hard work and the love she's shared?
At Tuscany Spa, we have Mothers day gift for every budget. Here are 3 great gifts for mom.
1. Relaxed and pain-free with an Infrared Sauna session. Only $20.
Mom can spend 30 minutes in our Infrared sauna. And leave with her joints feeling limber, her muscles loose and body relaxed. A great way to jumpstart healing and get back into life.
She can listen to relaxing spa music or bring her favorite cd. We'll give her a gown to wear to sweat out the toxins. And when she's done she can cool off with a quick rinse before heading home. To enhance her experience we ask she calls ahead so we can preheat the sauna so it starts of warm and toasty.
Note: Not recommended for clients with high-blood pressure or severe claustrophobia. The sauna does contain 1 way glass so you can see out but remain private.
2. Tuscany Spa 90 day membership
Instead of ONE massage, give mom THREE massages. One per month for the next 3 months. You'll be giving mom "Me-Time" once a month for the next 3 months. What is not to Love about that. Plus you'll spread out the cost over 3 payments. And you will save up to $93 on the perfect mothers day gift.
Mom gets to choose between an Essential Facial or a 90 Minute Restorative massage each month. And you get the satisifaction of knowing you're hard-working mom is taking care of herself.
3. Day of Luxurious Relaxation
Sometimes the best gift is a complete day off. A one day vacation from life's stresses and obligations. A Luxurious Spa Day gives her a full "Me-Day".
Start with an Customized Advanced Facial to brighten, lift and renew her skin. She'll be glowing at the end of her facial.
Mom continues her relaxation with an Ear Candling session. This ancient holistic treatment balances the spirit by restoring internal equilibrium. It evens pressure in the ear canal to reduce headaches, ear aches and sinus discomfort. Also excess ear wax clears out which seems to improve moms hearing. (I remember how mom had superhero hearing when I was a kid. She'd love to have that back.)
Then mom gets to enter heaven with a 90 minute Restorative Massage. This combination massage focuses on her specific needs. Combining swedish, hot stone, stretching, pressure point for the ultimate in relaxation. She'll definitely feel restored.
Giving mom an incredible spa experience is easy.
1. Stop in at the spa Saturday and buy mom her gift - wrapped in a spa gift box.
2. Buy online, print a gift certificate and wrap it yourself.
To all the moms that have been a mentor and friend to me, THANK YOU. That selfless love has made all the difference. And I am in awe of all that moms do, it's a tough job. We're lucky to have you in our lives.
I wish my mom, and all the moms I have known, a very beautiful and Happy Mothers Day.
