Chances are, if you’re alive, an inconceivably patient, loving, generous, and creative woman deserves your thanks. That is just the way Anna Marie Jarvis felt about her mother. Anna recognized the good that her mother had done in her lifetime and wanted to create a national memorial day for mothers as a tribute to her. By working with influential partners and embarking on an aggressive letter writing campaign, Anna was able to gain federal recognition for mothers everywhere. In 1914, the US government declared the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. This year, it’s Sunday, May 12.
If you want to honor your mother this Mother’s Day, you don’t have to go to the lengths that Anna Marie Jarvis did to show your appreciation. In Anna’s vision, Mother’s Day would be spent creating handwritten letters of gratitude for your mother and showering them with carnations. If you want to do a little more for your mother this year, Phagans can help you find the perfect way to pamper your mom and show her how much you care.
Phagans, a family business run by supermom Barbara Climaldi, knows what moms like. Consider these options for spoiling your mom (or yourself if you’re a mom):
Facials: If you have children, you know how precious quiet time alone can be. Treat mom to a facial where she’ll be wrapped in luxury and have her skin pampered. Afterward her skin and her spirit will glow.
Mani-Pedi: A mani-pedi is a great way to unwind and feel special. Mom will appreciate the girl time and remember your kind gift each time she looks down at her beautiful fingers and toes.
Style and Color: Moms rarely have enough time to dote on their appearance. That’s why an appointment for a hairstyle, color, or blowout is such a treat.
Special Treats: Phagans retail locations offer loads of things your mom would love to take home with her. From products to scented candles and other treats, you’re sure to find something to make your mom feel special.
Phagans is offering a couple of specials just for Mom, including a gift certificate that costs $50 but gets your Mom $75 worth of services. We’re also offering a Mother’s Day Package, including a manicure, pedicure, shampoo, and style for $25.
