This week, it’s all about finding the perfect gift for M-O-M. Show her you care with a treat or two, like the ones below from Lush, Bliss and IronFlowerFitness. It’s a great way to say thanks for all she’s done and continues to do.
What Mom really wants is a hot bath and some peace and quiet. Give her that golden opportunity with Lush’s Thanks Mum kit ($26.95). Inside, find Tiny Hands, Dream Cream, Butterfly Bubble Bar Wand and Sugar Scrub. Or, go all out (she did make you chicken soup every single time you got sick, ya know) with the Happy Mother’s Day tin ($56.95) packed with Mum Tulip and Madame Butterfly Bubble Bars, Tiny Hands, Butterball Bath Bomb, Dream Cream, Ocean Salt and Miranda Soap. GET IT: Aventura Mall, 19501 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura.
SPA: A homemade card is nice, but it hardly leaves the lasting impression a good massage will. Step it up this Mother’s Day with a treatment at Bliss. Save 20 percent (when purchased before Mother’s Day) when you buy a gift card for one of three motherly treatments for all stages of motherhood. For the experienced mom, Mother Glows Best (triple oxygen facial, Blissage 75, hot milk and almond pedi, hot cream manicure) ($328), covers all the bases. New moms will enjoy New Kid on the Block (rookie mom rubdown, oxygen blast and hot cream manicure) ($228). And moms-to-be will get a kick out of Bump for Joy (great expectations massage, cold feet pedicure) ($184). Be sure to ask for Vita when booking mom’s massage. She’s got just what she kneads.
GET IT: Bliss Spa at the W South Beach, 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 877-TO-BLISS.
GYM: Getting everyone to work and school on time, making sure they’ve had plenty to eat and enough rest, warding off colds with hand-washing and vitamins, packing for everyone in the house for family vacays, keeping drawers stocked with clean undies and socks — mom is a super hero sans cape. Help her get abs, buns and thighs of steel with a great workout routine. On May 12, bring mom to a class at IronFlowerFitness for free. Score one complimentary class for mom with any purchase of a class for you. Members can just bring mom along for no additional cost. Not only will you get your workout in with mom at your side, you can both sip champagne and enjoy treats afterward. Just don’t be surprised if mom shows you up by leaps and bounds. She is, after all, a Wonder Woman. GET IT: 7300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami; 305.640.5270.
