Giftable Self-Care Spa Day for Mom with Crate and Barrel

Mother’s Day will be here before we know it – happening Sunday, May 12!


I know it can be overwhelming to decide what to give to that special Mom -or- Mother figure /mentor in your life. As always with gifting, it should be memorable and something to be cherished. What better way to love on your mom than to gift her the spa day she deserves—all in the comfort of her own bathroom?!

There’s nothing better than creating your own luxury zone at home so you can indulge in it any time you like. I love filling my bathroom with products and pieces that are high-quality and totally useful, but also make the room look gorgeous; and I know mom will, too!

With Crate and Barrel’s new spa collection, it’s a cinch to put together a fabulous self-care gift for mom.

The Most Luxurious Gift Basket

Start by pulling together a uniquely curated gift basket. For special occasions like Mother’s Day, a gift basket is the ultimate present since you get to gift a beautiful, reusable item in addition to all the fun things inside.   I especially love this medium-sized Simi Nickel Wire Basket for filling with all kinds of goodies, like these comfy Blush Turkish Slippers that come in the perfect blush color (don’t forget about throwing in the White Turkish Bath Robe, too), or the insanely delicious-smelling lavender bath products by ElizabethW, which include bath cubes, body lotion, shower gel and body scrub.

If your mom is into more woodsy, earthy scents like bergamot, cedar and sage, she’ll absolutely love the unisex line by Manready Mercantile (or get a jump on Father’s Day, too, and pick up some of these dreamy products for both your parents).  The Tub Soak Bath Salts are the absolute best to throw in the tub after a long day (or better yet, a long week!), followed up by the Bergamot+Teak All in 1 Lotion. Seriously, this combo heals all.  

Top it Off With Tea

As if all that weren’t enough, top off your basket with the absolutely magical Flowering Tea Set, which comes with both a beautifully delicate glass teapot, as well as blooming green tea flowers. Nothing like a spot of tea to make a perfect spa day complete! It’s stunning when served on this Jackson Acacia Wood Tray. Guaranteed, your mom will be thanking you all year long.


Happy Gifting!
