If you’re going to settle in for more than a few minutes of pampering, set the stage. A quality candle with a delicate scent will really make all those face masks and moisturizers feel a bit more luxe. To keep Mom happy all year long, sign her up for Vellabox, a candle subscription box that delivers handmade candles right to her door.
Outrageously Comfy Slippers
Anyone can appreciate a great pair of slippers, but especially a hardworking mom. Go beyond the basic department store pair and treat Mom to these plush slides from UGG ($85). We promise the slippers are just as cozy as their famous boots.
What a better way to start off an at-home spa day than a relaxing bath soak. This bath tea ($25) is made of natural herbs, flowers and essential oils—like calendula and lavender—that help you really unwind.
Breathable Nail Polish
At-home manicures are a great way to take a moment for yourself. Try a breathable polish like this one from Orly ($10) is better for your nails than traditional nail lacquer. Try it in Fairy Godmother—a gorgeous shade any time of year but particularly the holidays. Be sure to protect your nails and wear dish gloves.
Looking for a real bit of luxury for Mom to add to her routine? Upgrade her hairdryer to a Dyson Supersonic ($399). This dryer is super quiet and works quickly to dry hair and leave it silky and smooth.
So trendy and incredibly fun. Sheet masks in all sorts of formulas—brightening, moisturizing, calming—are a great way to sneak in some at-home spa time (even if it’s just 10 minutes at a time). Try this brightening mask from Burt’s Bees ($4) for a radiant complexion.
Take your comforting bath to the next level with fizzy bath bombs. These fun additions bubble up the second they hit the water and melt into all sorts of soothing scents. Try options from Lush ($8 each), a beauty company with a serious bath bomb following.
A Good Book
While some folks like to kick back and just let those sheet masks and bath bombs do there work, others enjoy a good book while they relax. Since we’re foodies at heart, we recommend this fun novel ($10) about a woman and her bakery. And of course, this cover already has us craving these coconut treats.
After a long soak, lock in all that moisture with a rich, buttery moisturizer. This one from The Body Shop ($21) is ribboned with a light rose scent and brightening ingredients for that post-spa glow.
Let’s face it, feet need a little extra TLC from time to time. This soothing peppermint balm ($8) does wonders for overworked feet. A mix of different oils helps melt stress away and moisturize tired toes.
Silk Sleep Mask
After all the work of running a bath, moisturizing and settling in, a silky sleep mask is just the thing to tie a homey spa day together (and it’s great for a post-spa nap, too!). We love this luxury silk version from Slip ($50).
Essential Oil Diffuser
Add a relaxing blend of essential oils to a diffuser to set the mood at home. This mini diffuser ($20) changes colors to set the right vibe for your surroundings.
Keep those spa vibes flowing long after the bath bomb has fizzed and the sheet mask is gone. Everyday luxuries like handmade soaps ($8) are a great way to make even small routines feel a bit more luxe.
