One study showed that moms work, on average, close to 100 hours per week (98 to be exact) — that’s the equivalent of two full-time jobs! That kind of intense schedule of often hidden labor can take a toll on one’s physical and mental wellbeing. Time away, dedicated to self-care, is not only nice, it’s necessary.
But many mothers find it difficult to ask for the break they need. Which is why Mother’s Day (May 9th this year) is the perfect opportunity to gift Mom a respite from the day-to-day. A Haven Gift Certificate says she deserves the chance to be kind to herself and take time out. It puts the self-care in her hands, allowing her to choose the service or services she enjoys most, at a day and time that best suits her schedule. You just have to make sure she actually carves out time to use it!
If she’s not used to taking time for herself, you can recommend some of our most popular rejuvenating services — the ones where moms leave Haven feeling restored and ready to take on the world again:
1. HAVEN SIGNATURE MASSAGE — The wellness benefits of massage have been well-proven: they reduce stress, relieve tension, relax tired muscles, and reduce fatigue. Massages were made for moms! Our classic customized full-body Swedish massage will make her a true believer in the power of healing touch.
2. ORGANIC SKIN SPECIFIC FACIAL — Sometimes all it takes is a good deep cleansing to be ready to face the world again with renewed energy. Our classic, natural, customized facial uses the most luxurious, almost all-organic products. After a thorough skin analysis, intensive cleansing with the Clarisonic brush, extractions, a customized mask, and a personalized skin cream, mom will emerge glowing with new confidence.
3. SEA SALT SCRUB — This is THE quintessential scrub. Sea salt and essential oils exfoliate the body from head to toe, removing dry, itchy skin and increasing overall circulation. Followed by a moisturizing cream treatment, mom will leave feeling brand new.
4. HAVEN SEASONAL LUXE PEDICURE — The staying power of professional pedicures make them the perfect treat for a busy mom, an indulgence she can enjoy for weeks. There’s the mineral-bath soak, the revitalizing scrub, the moisturizing masque, the Eco-Fin treatment wrap, and the beautiful polish, but nothing beats the foot and calf rub for moms who are constantly running to and fro.
5 ONE SHOT LASH LIFT + LASH TINT — What a gift to get bright, beautiful lashes that don’t require daily maintenance! Just one 20-minute professional treatment will lift her own lashes from the root, creating the illusion of dramatic length that is retained — even after a shower or swimming — for up to 12 weeks. And with the color tint of her choice, she’ll get even better results to help her feel even more beautiful.
When you gift Mom a Haven Gift Certificate on Mother’s Day, you’re giving her something to look forward to, the chance to take a well-deserved break. And between now and Mother’s Day, if you purchase a Haven Online Gift Certificate for her worth $250 or more, we’ll give you an extra $25 Gift Card for FREE, to add to her overall sense of wellbeing.
