Motherhood is exhausting, and it is a job that never lets up. While we get to call it quits after a work day, most mums know that to return home is to enter another phase of an occupation that demands the world, and you can’t switch off the notifications when it comes to children.
Mother’s Day is the one day a year where mums all around the world are put in the spotlight for their undying efforts. In the race to figure out how to best show your mum the appreciation, why not take it down a notch and get her a relaxing Mother’s Day spa treatment for the occasion?
Many of our country’s most established boutiques have specially designed packages for the main lady in your life. We’ve picked out some of the top Mother’s Day spa bundles for you to book, lest you spend too much time trawling through Google in a panic. Also, don’t fret if it is too last minute, as these are available until the end of May.
Capella’s award-winning Auriga Spa has a package that lets you treat your mum, and yourself too. It begins with a rejuvenating 30-minute body scrub, then an option for an hour-long body massage or rose facial. Following that, enjoy an afternoon tea set for two and an Aesop travel-sized beauty kit as a gift. This is pampering with a capital P.
