The anticipated holiday is quickly approaching this Sunday, May 13th – Mother’s Day.Your mother is your rock and your best friend – pampering and treating her to a nice meal is a must on this day (if not every day). As you may know, I live thousands of miles away from my mom, but I was fortunate enough to be back at home these last few weeks in order to celebrate her.
From breakfast in bed to luxurious spa days and just spending quality time with mom; there are so many ways to treat her – especially in Chicago. In Chicago there are endless ways to celebrate mom – and today I am sharing with you my top 5 favorite ways to do so:
1) Treat her to a relaxing massage at Waldorf Astoria Spa.
What better way to spoil your mother by treating her to a massage! While there are a variety of spa locations to take her for a massage in Chicago, one of my ultimate favorites and totally recommend is Waldorf Astoria located in Gold Coast area in Chicago. As you may know, Waldorf Astoria is known for its sophisticated elegance and it’s one of a kind beauty. It’s a definite must to take mommy to enjoy her day.
I was lucky enough to take mine out and was pampered with their luxurious spa services. We both received 60 minute signature massages and spent the rest of the day indulging in their spa amenities (steam room, sauna and indoor lap pool). My mother and I absolutely loved it – we came out very relaxed and pleased. Waldorf Astoria offers other spa services such as facials, manicures and pedicures, body treatments and so much more. View it all here.
2) Take her out to a fancy dinner at Booth One.
After your day at the spa, you can easily head on over to Booth One, located also in the Gold Coast part of Chicago. Booth One reopened last November taken place of the very well-known Pump Room. Booth One offers a contemporary look, with a cream and gold atmosphere – it’s the perfect place to grab a unique cocktail or enjoy satisfying and delicious dishes with mom.
I took my mom there after our wonderful spa day at Waldorf – it was the perfect way to end the day. We ordered a variety of dishes such as their Japanese Snapper Ceviche and Bigeye Tuna Sashimi to start, for our entrees, my mother got the Maine Lobster Risotto and I ate the Crispy Duck, and last we shared a Chocolate Coconut Cake. View the full menu here. Every dish tasted freshly made and the overall service was always attentive and phenomenal.
3. Treat her to a dinner cruise with Odyssey Chicago.
What better way to have a family dinner than to have it on the water! Chicago has one of the most beautiful skylines – and if we are one of the lucky ones to spend Chicago summers out in the lake – we already know that one of the best ways to view Chicago’s skyline is by water. Starting at about $109.90, you can spoil your mother with prix fixe dinner while enjoying Chicago’s gorgeous city views. You can even at any given time slip out to the balcony for a bit of fresh air – and cheers to your mother on this special day.
4. Treat her to facials at Spa Space.
Located in the heart of the loop in Chicago you can find a luxury day spa called SpaSpace. They offer a variety of spa services such as facials, massages, cupping and much more. While I experienced their relaxing massage, I took my mom here for a facial and she absolutely loved it. She received the Vitamin C Booster Facial – and came out feeling like a new person. The treatment is for all skin types and is the perfect way to give your skin a boost with a three-step infusion of refreshing nutrients such as vitamin C serum, hydrating b5 gel, and a balancing hydrator.
