  • Spa Sets: Every mother loves to be pampered. Why not give her a gift that will do the pampering? There are a wide variety of options to choose from. First decide whether you would like to gift her something for her hair, body, face, hands or feet. Then decide whether to go for an elaborate set or something simpler. If your mother is the kind of person who just has been showering with the same brand of soap for years, bath salts and shower gels would be a good place to start. On the other hand, if your mother is quite used to regular trips to the spa and has a large collection of self-care products, she is likely to appreciate and use a Mother’s Day gift basket with an assortment of skin care products. If you’re unsure what to go for, just pick a set that smells and looks good. It’s hard to go wrong with spa sets. Spa sets are thoughtful gifts that will ultimately help her relax and take some time for herself.
  • Stationery: Working mothers and mothers who like to be organized will appreciate stationery items that they can use on a regular day-to-day basis.
