The perfect pamper session
With Mother’s Day just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to spoil the significant women woman in your life. Every mum has an overflowing stock of tea towels, coffee mugs and ornamental dishes – so why not think outside the box and tailor a pamper session to suit your mum, nan or friend (who may have recently became a mum) with something she will love and appreciate this Mother’s Day?
Take a look at our guide below for the perfect pampering presents.
For the pregnant mum: bubble bath
A relaxing bubble bath is perfect for pregnant women, as the water will take pressure off the back and allow her to feel weightless (if only for a little while). Gift her with a luxurious bath oil or soak like Sanctuary Spa Essentials Luxury Bath Float or Elemis Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir. If she has kids, offer to babysit while she soaks up some quiet time in the bathroom.
For the busy mum: massage
If you know a mum who is always on the go, tends to be a tad stressed and struggles to sit still for more than five minutes, a massage treatment is an ideal gift. By presenting her with a voucher for an hour of rest and relaxation, it will force her to switch off and distress.
We recommend: Aveda customised massage
For the new mum: essential oils
Essential oils are a great gift for mums with small children. When looking after a baby or toddler, most mums don’t have time to head to the salon, go for a massage or even just sit to paint their nails. So something as simple as placing the right essential oils around the house can help to create a calm and balanced atmosphere (even with toddlers running amok).
For the mother-in-law:manicure/pedicure
The mother-in-law is always a tricky person to buy a present for, especially if you’re trying to win her over. A manicure and pedicure package is a safe, practical option that any woman will love. Find out from your partner her favourite salon and book her in for an appointment. She’ll be impressed that you went to the effort of researching.
If she doesn’t have a preferred salon, those who reside in Sydney should try Mirror Mirror Beauty in Surry Hills or Endota Day Spa in the City. And those in Melbourne should try Kocho Spa in the City or Chuan Spa in Southbank. For all other areas, search our salon directory to find a place near you.
For your nan: facial treatment
If your nan is the kind to never fuss over herself and always puts others’ needs before her own, treat her to a luxury facial. It’s something she would never dream of purchasing for herself and will make her skin look and feel as good as new. Nans always appreciate time spent with family, so book yourself and your mum in, too. Your Mother’s Day gifts are sorted in one!
