Fix her a luxe bath

If you have those fancy bathtubs at your home, half your work is done. Simply bring out your bath salts, bath bombs and essential oils and draw her a relaxing bath. Play her favourite music and open a bottle of red wine if that is what she fancies. Or if she’s more of a reader, keep a book. If not, you can still give her a luxe bath experience by dimming the lights and placing scented candles in the bathroom. A long, warm shower is just as relaxing and therapeutic.

Give Her A Hair Spa

You can easily pull off a DIY hair spa at home. It’s one of the easiest spa activities that you can do yourself and that too on a budget. Start with a hot oil massage. Shampoo her hair salon style, condition with a hair mask and wrap a damp towel (dip in warm water and squeeze) around her hair. Rinse and dry it with a hair dryer. You could also style her hair as she wants after the spa.

Foot rub

No woman would ever deny a foot rub. Massaging tired feet can be heavenly relaxing and if your mom has never had it experienced in a salon, you can introduce it to her by giving her a DIY foot rub. Learn the steps and pressure points beforehand. Get any natural oil, one with a nice fragrance would be a great choice, and warm it up. Slowly massage her feet while she sits back and feel the pain and muscle tension melt away.

Manicure

The easiest salon treatment you can give your mom is a manicure. We are not talking about just painting her nails, though. She deserves a little more effort than that. However, it’s still pretty easy. Simply start by exfoliating her hands and moisturising it. Clip, clean and buff her nails and apply her favourite nail colour. You can also give her a pretty nail art (search for nail art hacks if you are a noob). She will love it.

Facial

You can easily cheat a salon-like facial even if you never got one yourself. The basic skincare steps apply to it with an added massaging step. Wash her face, exfoliate and massage. Cover the face with a damp warm towel for 10 minutes. Use a toner, face mask and end it with a moisturiser. Make sure you keep hers and your phone on silent and let her indulge in the treatment.
