We recommend Studio G Salon & Spa and let her get a true relaxing reTREAT with their Mother’s Day Package. There are a few different packages to choose from.

For those soon-to-be-moms they even offer a Mommy to Be Package. This would surely be a surprise treat. This includes a 50-Minute Mother To Be massage along with a signature pedicure.

Then There’s The Inevitable Shopping Spree
Take you mom out on the town for a good old-fashioned shopping spree. Shopping is one of the best ways to bond with Moms (and wives) and you will have the unique opportunity to buy something for her that you know she wants and will use and appreciate.

A couple of the biggest highlights at the Florida Mall, and a great place to start your spree, is the Macy’s Department Store, Victoria’s Secret, and Zara.
After a long stroll around the mall you may start to get hungry again. You can dine in at the Florida Mall. They have the California Pizza Kitchen, Hocca Bar, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Auntie Anne’s, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Shake Shack, and a lot more.
