January is the perfect time for a bit of pampering mum - daughter bonding. Not only will you get to spoil your beloved mum, it will create memories you'll both cherish.
No doubt she was running around all over Christmas, putting everyone before herself, so now it's time she put her feet up and did something just for her.
From yoga, to an at-home-spa, to a gorgeous mani, you'll both love these ideas:
1. Afternoon tea
What could be more heavenly that chatting with our favourite woman in between mouthfuls of tea, jammy scones and tiny cute sandwiches? Afternoon tea is a leisurely, drawn out dining experience that allows us to dress up in our loveliest frocks and natter the day away surrounded by CAKES. What’s not to adore?
2. Mani and pedi
After all the hard work (and dancing) that takes place over the party season, your poor mum’s hands and feet deserve some post-Christmas TLC. You’ll have so much fun together picking out your polish shades and chatting away as you’re pampered by the professionals.
3. Pampering break
As we all know, January is the longest, toughest month to get through. So why not make your mum’s January the best ever by booking a relaxing break together? The stunning Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa in Wicklow has an amazing midweek offer of dinner, bed and breakfast and 20% off espa treatments. Think walks through the mountain-fringed grounds, delicious food and chilling in the spa’s gorge thermal suite and pool.
4. A pamper hamper
Create a home spa kit for your mum by filling a basket with a selection of her favourite pampering goodies, like face masks, scented candles and fluffy slippers. And to make it all about the mum-daughter bonding, include two of everything so you can chill at home together. She’ll love her basket of treats.
5. A yoga workshop
Yoga studios all over the country hold special workshops designed to quieten the mind and relax the body, so why not sign the pair of you up for one held in January? Not only will you have a chance to chill out after the festive madness, it will set the tone for a healthier, happier New Year.
