Any mother would love a day or two of pure pampering; however, most spas are pricey. But did you know that some bed-and-breakfast inns offer complimentary in-room massages, whirlpool tubs, and other specials for mom? These quaint homes are usually found in picturesque environments and are situated on lakes, nestled among mountains, or sequestered in a forest on a wooded lot. Look through your local phone directory or at the tourist bureau for pamphlets for information about an inn near you. With the economy down, a lot of these inns and resorts will likely be running promotions for Mother's Day weekend. And once you get there, don't be afraid to ask at the front desk for promotional coupons for other fun sights and activities in the area. Even if your local B&B doesn't offer a whole lot of "spa-like" amenities, Mom will still be guaranteed a nice breakfast that she didn't have to prepare herself.
Whatever you do for Mom, whether big or small, remember to do it from the heart. She's guaranteed to love it.
See you next time...Sandie Lee
