Five Easy Ways To Make Mother's Day Massage Day

Women are the greatest consumers of massage. And it only makes sense that beleaguered mothers, especially, deserve an escape from a job where you're never really off the clock.

Massage can be combined with many gift options to create something positively decadent or a special treat on a budget.


1) If money is no object, go for a day of beauty, complete with massage, manicure, pedicure, hair care services (cut, style, color, etc.)

2) If money is a bit of an issue, you can just book a one hour massage, and while she's being pampered, detail her car. Oh, and don't forget to fill up before you return the car to her.

3) With really little ones, you may not want handle the crew on your own, and your budget may be stretched thin with all those diapers and formula. A half hour massage may be the way to go. It gives her time to relax on her way to the massage, and time to reorient to the real world while on her way home. That and you know there's a light at the end of the tunnel if Jr. becomes inconsolable.

4) If a family outing is more her style for Mother's Day, a walk in the mall with the family might lead you to a seated massage venue at a kiosk (plan ahead and make sure they're actually there). What a nice surprise! You can take the kids for dippin' dots while Mom gets 15 minutes of stress busting.

5) Dead broke? A home cooked meal and a do-it-yourself back rub can go a long way in making Mom feel special. Oh, and that back rub is not a precursor to anything but relaxing, unless she decides to show you her appreciation for your thoughtfulness.
