Mother's Day is here again before you know it. With less than a week away from the actual day, are you scratching your head for the perfect mother's day gift? It's a tough choice - a mother's day gift has to be thoughtful yet not too costly in view of her birthday.
After all, your mother has everything and anything you can afford, she can too. Ideas for the special day are limited. Some common gift ideas are jewellery (every year's the same), flowers (your mom thinks its a waste of money)… So what about spa packages?
Spa treatments are one of the best female bonding sessions - having a heart-to-heart talk while being pampered together in a relaxed ambience. FreshGrads susses out three unique Mother's Day spa packages for Mother's Day this weekend.Aramsa Spas
Treat your mom to the two-hour long Mum's the Star package, which includes a SkinCeuticals Deep Pore Facial and a Aramsa Touch Massage, at Aramsa Spas in Bishan Park 2. SkinCeuticals is a professional skincare line from America and has been featured on magazines such as The Oprah Magazine and Vogue. The package costs $260 for both mother and daughter at off peak times (Mondays to Thursdays) and $340 during peak hours (Friday and weekends). Quote Star Package at purchase to enjoy this promotion.
And to end off that soothing experience, have a nice healthy vegetarian dinner ($80 for two) and yummy desserts such as Mont Blanc at The Green Room, also under the Aramsa Lifestyle group, in lush greenery at Bishan Park 2. The perfect Mother's Day could be a walk in the park. Spa Botanica
Away on Sentosa island and perched on a cliff is Spa Botanica, where Mother dearest and yourself may pamper yourself for two hours with a deep cleansing and exfoliating body scrub (Body Salt Glow or Green Tea Body Glow) followed by either an uplifting papaya body wrap or a customised facial. The Mother Dearest by Spa Botanica also includes a two-course dinner at The Garden next door.
Luxury, however, comes at a high price. The Mother Dearest package costs $288 per person and $566 for two. Advance reservations are required. Ikeda Spa
Treat mom to an exotic and unforgettable spa treat this Mother's day - either an organic cocoa massage or a full-on wine spa experience. The Choco Mother's Day Spa Gift includes either a 30-minute white chocolate almond scrub or a 30-minute dark chocolate scrub followed by a 90-minute body cocoa massage full of anti-oxidants to leave mom's skin feeling rejuvenated. On the other hand, the Vino Mother's Day Spa Gift replaces chocolate with a fragrant wine bath essence which would help sooth skin irritation, heal skin damage and relieve symptoms of menopause as well. What's more, the intoxicating wine spa would leave mom in high spirits.
On top of the spa treat, present mom with an ever-lasting gold-plated Carnation for a great impression. The petal and leaves of the spa gift is made of 24K Gold Foil while the trunk and branches are plated with 24K Gold. The Gold Carnation is complimentary with any of the above two mentioned packages ($228/pax). Related links: Aramsa Spas
