If you're still scratching your head over what to give mom for Mother's Day (which is this Sunday, May 11, by the way) here's an idea that's basically guaranteed to knock it out of the ballpark:
Give her a break.
This can be as simple as giving her free reign of a quiet house, dropping her off at a spa alone or with friends, or simply banning her from the kitchen when it's time to plan, prep and clean up after meals.
Choosing the spa route may score you extra points, as she'll not only get a good break, but she'll get a good pampering too, which means she'll come home relaxed and ready to resume her Supermom duties.
The National Institue of Medical Aesthetics (NIMA) in South Jordan offers services from simple mani/pedis to laser hair removal and botox at reasonable prices because each treatment is carefully performed by supervised students.
Sego Lily Spa has locations in Layton and Midvale, and offer a pampering menu of services, even including luxurious bath soaks. Visit their website and their Facebook page for two ways to win a fabulous spa package or customized spa retreat (think makeup consultation, massage and pedicure) for your mom before May 10.
Send her on an overnight getaway up the canyon at the St. Regis Deer Valley where she can partake in Remede Spa indulgences like hot stone massage, customized body polish, oxygen inhilation therapy or the spa's Pampered Mother special, which includes nearly three hours of relaxing facial, manicure and pedicure.
Whether she catches a break at home or elsewhere, chances are she'll be glad just to take a few deep, cleansing, uninterrupted breaths.
