Ideas for Mom this Mother's Day

Don't forget this Sunday is Mother's Day!

First of all, don't forget to find cards for the most important Moms in your life (mothers, wives, your child's mother, grandmas, aunts, godmothers...).

If you're a last minute shopper (like me) and still need to find something for the special Mom in your life, here are some ideas:

All-in-one shopping
Take advantage of department store sales (JC Penny, for one, is offering a big Mother's Day sale, and you can get anything from Sephora make up and skin products to nice dresses to lingerie).

Of course, like the department stores, lots of big jewelers are offering sales. I suggest, however, that if you decide to go for this type of gift, don't forget about your local jewelers. In Asheville, consider the Karot Patch and Jewels that Dance. You'll get a more meaningful piece (not to mention the diamonds and gems are less likely to come from ugly mining practices).

Spa Treatment
Moms love the spa treatment. Consider a massage, something extra special like a hot stone massage or mud wrap, or a manicure, pedicure, or facial. In Asheville, look at Sensibilities Day Spa or Spa Theology.

A Getaway
Okay, okay, we all knew it was coming. But really, don't forget to consider a Mother's Day Getaway. If you live close enough, think about a quick weekend visit to the Asheville area. Or, if you live in Asheville, you can still enjoy a cozy weekend in a mountain cabin, away from Mom's regular hectic routine. But this coming weekend has filled up quickly, so book fast to get a great last minute reservation. To give mom luxury and a sweet day in Biltmore, I highly recommend the Biltmore Condos.
