Spa Day Ideas and Party Favors

spa day ideas

As mothers and grandmothers, we’re always busy.  Fixing meals, being a chauffer, planning activities for the kids, laundry, and homeschooling.  Furthermore, we can’t leave out the husbands and significant others, we must make time for them too.  As a result of our busy life, we often neglect ourselves.

I have the perfect solution, plan a spa day.  Invite 2 or 3 friends over, and enjoy the day laughing, sipping wine and pampering yourself.  Not in the mood for friends or your time is limited.  No need to feel guilty, pick a few ideas for yourself. Here’s a list of spa day ideas that you can implement:

Foot Massage – First, if you have a portable foot massager/bath, pull it out and pour yourself a glass of wine.  Roll up those leggings, and soak those tootsies.  If various friends will be using the foot massage, be sure to sanitize it between uses.

Give Yourself a Manicure  – Second, remove old polish, shape your nails and soak your fingers in a simple solution of your favorite liquid bath soap.  Better yet, have a friend remove the excess cuticle around your nail and give you a fresh coat of polish.

Facial – Next, a facial is always good.  So, use your favorite facial products and have your friends bring theirs.  You can provide warm water for rinsing and a towel as well as olive oil to use as a moisturizer.

Eye Treatment – Furthermore, slice a few cool cucumbers and place them over your eyes.  Turn on a relaxing DVD, and let the cucumbers do their job.

Finally, prepare a light lunch or finger foods and catch up on what’s been happening with everyone.  If you decide to go it alone, prepare a salad or sandwich and chill a bottle of your favorite wine.

Last, create a spa day party favor for your guests. It doesn’t have to be expensive.  Just show your appreciation.  I grabbed these items from the dollar store.  A wine glass, a loofah and a facial brush are perfect.  Also, you can replace the facial brush with a disposal razor.  Create the spa day sundae above.  It’s simple, you can add bath salt to the bottom of the glass as well.  Add your razor or facial brush and than the loofah.  I think a solid color with white gives the sundae the perfect touch.  The white is reminiscent of a dollop of whipped cream.

Grab a cute gift bag, and you’re set.  Hand them to your guests as they’re leaving to show a token of appreciation for helping to make the day a success.  Last, we hope you enjoyed our spa day ideas.  You may also like: 17 Ways Moms Can Refuel and Relax.
