Flowers are fine. Brunch is better. But ultimately, nothing says “I love you, Mom” like the gift of a spa treatment. Here are some great local offerings guaranteed to bring tears (of joy) to your mother’s eyes on her special day:

For the glamourous mom

Babor Beauty Spa in Mission is the European spa chain’s first location in North America. The High Skin Refiner Global Anti-Aging Facial claims to slow down the aging process by stopping the glycation of collagen and elastin. Your mom will feel like one of the jet-set fabulous. Don’t be surprised if she starts calling you “dah-ling.”

80 minutes, $220.

For the sporty mom

If your mom is one of those types who believes relaxing at the spa is much better when it’s preceded by an invigorating hike, treat her to a day up at Lake Louise that starts on the trails and concludes with a Hiker’s Foot Therapy massage at the spa at the Chateau Fairmont Lake Louise, which uses pine, eucalyptus and chamomile to relieve stress on the feet, shins and calf muscles.

25 minutes, $85.

For the mom-to-be

Pregnant women are told to avoid certain spa treatments, but that doesn’t mean they need to avoid the spa altogether. The B Mom To Be Reposed body treatment at Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt Regency Calgary is specially designed for pre-natal pampering, offering a dry-brush exfoliation followed by a hydrating body butter application with special attention given to the belly.

60 minutes, $150.

For the brand-new mom

With all the midnight feedings and diaper changes, no one appreciates a little “me time” at the spa more than a new mom. The Nourishing Coconut Body Smoothie treatment at The Spa Ritual is recommended for post-pregnancy skin, providing a gentle exfoliation with sea salts and cocoa butter whip, followed by a cocoa-butter cream application (cocoa butter is particularly good for stretch marks). The suburban location makes parking a breeze.

30 minutes, $90.

For the executive mom

Business women need to look polished and put together, so if your mom spends her days closing deals in a downtown highrise, she’ll appreciate a Colour Gloss Manicure from Butter Beauty Parlour. Throw in a Blow Out as well and she’ll be all set for her next presentation to the Board of Directors.

Colour Gloss Manicure, $51.
Blow Out, $36.
