Local Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

We’ve never met a mom who turned down a good pedicure, and Julep (multiple locations including Bellevue, downtown Seattle, U District and Gig Harbor) is always a great gift choice. Their parlor menu includes dozens of options and upgrades, and Julep Nail Color does not contain formaldehyde or any other nasties. Go for a gift card, or surprise her with a Mother’s Day Mani Essentials Kit ($36.99). Added bonus: A portion of proceeds go to support the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, a non-profit working to end needless deaths in pregnancy and childbirth around the world. Frenchy’s Day Spa in Madison Park is another one of our favorites. The whole vibe is frilly and fun and for $45 you can hear mama purr when she gets her feet dipped in warm paraffin. Gift cards for spa services are a super option – or shop their Parisian-inspired store for cosmetics, soaps, candles, lingerie, jewelry or perfume.
