Don’t Forget Your Favorite Girlfriend – Mom!

Mother’s Day is May 11, so don’t wait until the last minute to find a gift for the special mother in your life. Whether she is your mom, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt or friend, a girls’ getaway is the perfect gift, especially for those who want to give her something unique that she will enjoy and remember. Here are a few suggestions:
Help Her Fulfill Her Dreams
Find out what she has always wanted to do, maybe learn to sail, surf or belly dance? Maybe she has always wanted to take a cooking class, salsa lessons or ride in a hot air balloon. Find out what she has always dreamed of doing and make it a reality for her!
Plan a Girls Getaway or Girls Night Out
Give the special mother in your life something to look forward to, like a fabulous girl’s getaway. Plan a shopping vacation, wonderful cruise or a local weekend retreat. For those busy women who cannot getaway overnight, plan an all girls dinner date or book a yoga or pilates class for your special someone and her friends.
Send Her to Get Pampered or Plan a Makeover
Every woman enjoys time at the spa. Purchase a gift certificate for a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure. Give her the opportunity to indulge in the ultimate relaxation. A makeover is also a great gift for the mom who doesn’t have a lot of time for herself. Make an appointment for her to consult with a beauty expert, buy new make-up and get great beauty tips. If she has small children, offer to babysit and send her out for the day, evening or overnight.
