She changed countless dirty diapers and gained 30 pounds for you. And all you really repaid her with is gray hair. Baby mom this Mother’s Day.
Equinox spoons out three holiday treatments, including The Mother Lode, a 50-minute deep-tissue massage and 50-minute hot and cold skin therapy facial combo. Send her to V Spa for the Thank You from Head to Toe massage, facial, and mani/pedi or keep it simple with ZaSpa’s Love Yo Momma rubdown. Send her home with Philosophy’s I Think You Are Wonderful bubble bath and body lotion set. Moms, book a bikini wax at The Pretty Kitty and bank a free brow wax if you purr DailyCandy when booking.
Sweeten her day with a gift box from See’s Candies, now open at Stonebriar Centre. Nothing says “I heart you” like a Tub of Love. Butter her up with William Yeoward’s American Bar, a tome about the world’s most glamorous cocktails from Madison. Steel’s sushi class (Saturday, 2:45-4:45 p.m.) teaches Mom trade secrets, from slicing raw fish to spicy tuna roll 101 (reserve at 214-219-9908).
Cuddle her favorite cab sauv in a cowboy boot wine holder. Don’t forget fun accessories, like a funky porcelain bottle stopper or needlepoint coasters from the new Jonathan Adler boutique. Serious winos inhale the surprisingly chic wine bottle candles made from recycled French labels at Patina Green Home and Market in McKinney. Swap the sappy card for a cheeky, locally crafted wine tag.
Channel your childish side with an About Face custom silhouette (like the one you did in kindergarten but cooler) from Uptown Country Home. Make her a homemade bouquet with help from Branching Out’s free flower class with demos, tips, and tricks at West Elm (Saturday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.). Place your pretty stems inside a colorful chalkboard vase from The Gypsy Wagon.
And don’t forget, give her a kiss and huggies.
