A little bit of pampering goes a long way!

Advantages: can do it at home, needn't be too expensive
Xmas can be a very stressful time for mothers. All that food to cook, relatives coming to stay, children off scholl wanting to be entertained. Not much of a holiday for a mum is it?
Thats why this could be the ideal Xmas present. There are various forms depending on how rich you are but lets start with the cheap option!
Gift vouchers for a beauty salon - after all that rushing about at Xmas and New year everyone can look a bit run down and tired so a pick me up is definitely required. What could be better than lying back for an hour and being pampered? The good thing about a gift voucher is that the person can choose what they want. They could get anything from a massage, a pedicure, a body wrap or even a non-surgical face lift! Gift vouchers are a great idea to let someone try out a new treatment to see if they like it. You don't want to commit to a course of 12 treatments then find out that it isn't for you! All the beauty salons i know of seel gift vouchers for all different amounts so it needn't cost a fortune. The voucher can either be used to apy for a treatment or put towards the cost of one.
Health farms - get away from it all by a visit to a health farm. Most health farms allow day visitors so you don't have to stay over night which keeps the cost down. They normally have a wide range of leisure facilities such as swimming pools, saunas and gyms and offer a wide range of treatments such as you would find at a beauty salon. This is perfect for chasing away those mid-Januaru blues!
If you are really broke you could always go for the home option. Its not that hard to give your mum a home facial (just buy a womans mag first and read up on it!), allow her to relax and put her feet up and give her a pedicure if you feel brave. Manicures are easy enough to do as are home massages with scented oils (try the Body Shop). This would be perfect inbetween Xmas and New Year as it allows your poor mum to
cathc her breath before all the parties start.
Whatever option you choose it will be very well received and appreciated believe me!
