Give Her What She Really Wants for Mother's Day

The perfect present for the mom with everything...

My mom's reached the stage in life where she has everything she needs - or so she says. But even at "her age" she's still up for having a good time. If your mom's a rocker at heart, Madonna may have the perfect Mom's day gift.

Give Mom a BreakGive Mom a BreakDon't whisk her away this weekend - but let her know you're going to. Whether it's Madonna's tour or tickets to see Tom Jones, let her know that you know what she really wants. Once you've chosent the concert, book a girl's getaway around it.

The best part for you, is that this luxe Mother's Day surprise can be done on the fly - you could put it together with a few phone calls on Saturday. All you need to do, is to make some reservations and call your sisters to make sure they can keep that weekend free!

Pile into a suite at a fancy hotel and turn it into sleepover central. With a quick trip to your mom's favorite beauty store, you can make the room into your personal spa - or hire a professional esthetician to give you all pedis and facials using their portable kit.

Once you're prettied up, hit the town for dinner and your concert, making sure you take lots of pics. Voila! You're daughter of the year, once again.

What was your best Mother's Day gift? Ever taken her on a fabulous trip?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
