How to Do Mother’s Day Right

Planning the perfect Mother’s Day can seem like a daunting task. After all, Mother’s Day is an occasion to show mom (or your mother figure) just how much you love and appreciate her. But Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be an elaborate affair to make her feel special. Sure, expensive gifts are nice, but sometimes it’s the small thoughtful things that have the biggest impact. Here is a bit of Magic Bag inspiration to get you started on planning her day.


Show mom you love her with the gift of relaxation

Getting Mother’s Day right can be as simple as letting mom relax for the day. And that can mean different things to different people. But not having a million things to do today (especially the cooking and cleaning!) can be just what mom needs. So for our Magic Bag Mother’s Day edition, we planned out an easy-to-create at-home spa day to pamper mom and show her how much you love her. Just remember, the keyword is relaxation!


First, breakfast in bed

There is nothing quite like waking up to the smell of fresh coffee (… or frying bacon for us meat eaters). Sneak out to the kitchen while you let mom sleep in, and prepare her favourite breakfast. Even if it’s just her go-to coffee-muffin combo from the coffee shop down the road, having something ready for her when she wakes up is a great way to kick off her day just right. But don’t forget to do the dishes!


Next, set the tone with the right scents and sounds

Now that breakfast is done, it’s time to let your at-home spa day begin! Queue up a relaxing playlist on the stereo and light some aromatherapy candles for a nice soothing vibe. Or try an essential oil diffuser to give your home that heavenly, soothing scent.


Dress the part

The best part about at-home spa days? You don’t even need to change out of your pyjamas. Slip on a plush robe and our comfy heatable Magic Bag slippers and let the pampering begin! We love these slippers, as in addition to keeping feet warm, they stimulate blood flow and promote overall relaxation. The perfect accessory for your at-home spa day!


Now, it’s bath time!

Whether it’s a bubble bath or a bath bomb, relaxing in the tub, even for a short soak, is a great way to de-stress. Why not suggest mom combine bath time with mask time? There are many wonderful DIY face masks she can try while she soaks. With a range of hydrating, exfoliating, and soothing ingredients, a face mask will have mom’s skin looking radiant and refreshed.


Next, up your self-care and beauty game

After her soak, you can try a range of other self-care and beauty treatments. From exfoliating scrubs to peels to mani-pedis to foot and scalp massage to repairing hair serums, there are so many great at-home spa treatments you can try. In addition to being less expensive than at a salon or spa, they will have mom feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. And not to mention looking like a million bucks!


Time for some me-time

After your bath and beauty session, grab our lavender aromatherapy face mask and lavender aromatherapy neck wrap. Providing instant, soothing relief, our lavender or eucalyptus face masks are perfect for kicking back and relaxing. Maybe an afternoon nap is even in the cards!


Finally, enjoy a nice dinner and a movie

After a nice day of pampering and self-care, end things on a high note with a delicious family meal and movie. Keep it simple with an easy-to-make recipe you know she’ll love or even get her favourite takeout.


You don’t need to spend a fortune to make Mother’s Day special. With a little bit of thought, you can plan the perfect day for mom or your mother figure. And with our Magic Bag spa collection, creating a relaxing at-home spa experience is truly easy.
