I can’t believe Mother’s Day is right around the corner again! Consider this your official reminder!! ( Mommas you can share this link as Hint to your husbands & kids email or facebook pages.. You’re welcome!!)
This year think outside the box and Shop Local for that special Momma in your life!! For anyone reading this that isn’t local.. I hope this blog sparks some ideas in you to skip the flowers, perfume or brunch this year and instead search for some local businesses that offer some fantastic alternatives!
In my continued effort to highlight local women who are juggling a side hustle along with their already busy lives, I have found 5 super awesome businesses that you can scope out as possible gift ideas, not only for Mother’s Day (In case you already have a few tricks up your sleeves this year) but as an “I Love you” gift for any time of the year! All those hard working mommas in our lives deserve a reminder at how much we appreciate them!
This years theme is Time..Surprise her with not just a gift, but a moment she can have all to herself.
Here are 5 great options you can check out!!
Beauté Medispa – Gift Cards Available! Help mom turn back time. Give her back some youthful skin by treating her to a facial or body wrap. If you are looking to spoil a momma in your life with a spectacular treat, one that she would probably never gift herself, (Let’s be honest ladies, we rarely spend time just taking care of ourselves) then please check out Beauté Médispa. Maria has a comfortable and welcoming space in Saint-Lazare where she offers services like a Gold and Diamond Facial, MIneral rich Body Wraps, Microdermasion and a Hyperbaric Oxygen Facial among other services. Mom will love to try any one of these, I can guarantee it!!

Esthetique Mobile Carolyn GIft Certificates Available
Pamper your mom, by letting her stay at home in her comfies (YESSSSSS!!) WHILE she gets treated to a manicure, pedicure or both! A mani/pedi is a real treat to a mom on the go.. The last thing we have is time to think about our nails..with all the dishes, laundry..sweeping, washing etc.. the nails get the raw end of the deal. Surprise that momma with an appointment with Carolyn. Then offer to clean up too, so she can keep those beautiful nails longer than a few days 🙂
Carolyn offers in home electrolysis and waxing too, which would be a great gift with summer just around the corner, but I wouldn’t suggest it for mother’s day. It hurts a bit when getting it done..GAHHHH KELLY CLARKSON..but sooo worth it for silky smooth legs.. The bonus with Carolyn is that she comes to YOU. So whether you just don’t feel like rushing around, or you have a hard time getting around or don’t drive.. then this is a fantastic option!!Contact Carolyn to make appointments via her facebook page here
No matter what you decide to do for that momma in your life, I am sure she will appreciate it. Just knowing that you are thinking about her and appreciate all that she does, is enough to keep her going for another year!
As we get older, we realize that time is precious. Cherish the time you have, because it goes by all too fast! Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms out there. Whether you are a fur baby mommy, a step-mom, an adoptive mom, or a mother like figure in someone’s life. I hope you get to enjoy this one day. Put those dirty dishes down and DO NOT fold laundry.. Take a moment for yourself.. You deserve it!
