What Moms Want for Mother’s Day

This article is sponsored by Blend & Bright but all opinions are our own.

Mom, it’s time to celebrate YOU and all you do for your families. Mother’s Day is May 12 this year. 

We asked our team what they want for Mother’s Day, because let’s be honest, moms have the best ideas! If you’re shopping for a mom (or yourself) resist the urge to order from Amazon or run to Target at the last minute. Everything on this list is from local businesses. Feel free to send this link to your husband and/or your kids. You’re welcome! 

When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a gift card for a scalp facial, microdermabrasion, or other spa services at Blend & Bright. For Mother’s Day, when you buy a $100 gift card you get a free $20 spa gift card.

Blend & Bright is a full-service salon and spa in Ankeny that partners with House of Colour to offer Style & Color Analysis experiences. We highly recommend trying their new scalp facial (see our review here). It is a Japanese head spa method that includes scalp analysis with a trichoscope and treatment customized to your scalp and hair-specific needs. Imagine the best scalp massage you’ve ever had!
