Perfect Pampering: Pampering Ideas for Busy Mums

Mums work hard, whether it’s getting the kids up and ready for school, getting dinner on the table, or taking care of their own careers. The title of ‘Mum’ usually also means chef, doctor, storyteller, general knowledge expert, and superhero, so sometimes mums need a little pampering!

Whether the mum in need of pampering in your life is your partner, daughter, friend, mum, or yourself, the lead up to Christmas is the perfect time to make sure she gets a little luxury and a lot of pampering.

A Little Rest and Relaxation

Sometimes, all mums need is just a little bit of time to themselves to tune out from the chaos of everyday life. Why not set aside some time or even a whole day to take the kids off her hands, take care of the housework and give her some time to herself to read a good book, catch up on her favourite TV show, take a long walk, or anything else that she loves to do to unwind.

She’ll definitely appreciate that time when she doesn’t have to think about who has a class project to finish off, making healthy snacks for the family, or wrangling the kids into the bathtub before bedtime!

A Spa Day Experience

When you think of pampering, it’s hard not to think about sitting in a spa with a mud mask and cucumber slices on your eyes, so why not gift this luxurious treat to the busy mum in your life? We spoke to a spokesperson from Daffodil Hotel & Spa in the Lake District who said,

“There is nothing better than being treated to a day at the spa and we see countless people leave our spa looking refreshed, relaxed, and happy! These experiences make excellent gifts for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, and any other special occasion that warrants a celebration.” 

A Floral Gift

Flowers are always a great way to show someone that you care, so while you’re pampering that special mum in your life, why not send them flowers with a personal message to tell them just how much you appreciate them? With a service like Flowercard you can add a message with a card full of flowers. This is an extra special way of gifting flowers – much better than a withered bouquet from the local petrol station!

A Box Full of Beauty Gifts

Beauty subscription boxes offer a great way to gift a selection of pampering items from face masks to lipsticks. There are plenty of different subscriptions to choose from so you can pick one that perfectly suits the recipient. Many of these subscriptions have gifting options so you give a one-off present or buy them a subscription for months at a time.

You can find a rundown of some of the best options available in this Telegraph article which features the likes of Birchbox, Lookfantastic, and Glossybox.

If you have a busy mum in your life in need of pampering, there are plenty of ways to make sure she gets that rest and relaxation she needs. The run up to Christmas can be a particularly chaotic time for mums, so why not treat her to a little bit of luxurious pampering to show her just how much you appreciate her and everything she does.
