For some one mom, going to the spa is a regular activity. For another, it’s completely out of the ordinary. That doesn’t mean she dislikes getting pampered. To really show her that you’re paying attention, get her a spa service that relates to her favorite activities.

Does your mom spend her afternoons digging in the dirt?

Gardener Mom

Gift Idea: Facial

If the garden is bountiful and the flowers are blooming, your mom is probably spending a lot of time outdoors. Even if she’s wearing SPF, her skin is subject to humidity, sweat, and wind. Not only will a facial help get rid of pore-clogging dead skin, it will leave her as fresh as a flower after a spring rain.


Is “one more page” an everyday saying for your mother?

Reader Mom

Gift Idea: Massage

For the mom who stays up into the wee hours of the night to get to the end of her whodunit novel, a massage is the ideal gift. Curled up with a book always sounds good, but after hours of looking at the page, her neck is likely getting sore. A massage will help work out any knots and improve posture.


Does your mom wake up at 5am for a run?

Runner Mom

Gift Idea: Hair Treatment at favorite Salon

Nobody works out with their hair down. All those ponytails can take a toll, causing split ends, overall breakage, and drying out the hair follicles. To remedy this, schedule a deep conditioning treatment, which will help restore the hair back to its natural luster. Just make sure the appointment is after her workout.


Is your mom always hard at work on her next project?

Crafter Mom

Gift Idea: Manicure & Pedicure

Whether she’s a painter, knitter, or jewelry maker, moms who craft always have a vision, but it might not necessarily include a day at the salon. Book a manicure and hand massage for your mom to treat her tired fingers, and remind her that a good manicure is an artform of its own!

Still don’t think you can convince your mom to set foot into a spa? Try a DIY beauty day with her. You can pick up all the single use products you’ll need like the Intrinsics Pre-Cut Gauze Facials Masks or our new Gel Nail Wipes at your local beauty supplier in addition to everything else.


Happy Mother’s Day from the Intrinsics team!
