If you’re stumped on what to do for Mother’s Day this year, I’ve got you covered. There’s no better gift than a day of spoiling, self-care and sweet treats! Follow along as I walk through some of my favorite gift recommendations in Overland Park. 

Sunlighten Day Spa 

Sunlighten Day Spa is one of the Kansas City metro's most sophisticated and all-encompassing day spas. They are widely-know for their infrared saunas, foot soaks, and comprehensive list of treatments, including full body massages, facials, or specialized treatments like cupping, reiki, or ear candling.

Upon arrival, the warm and hospitable staff greet you in the lobby where aesthetically pleasing elements like waterfalls set the tone for total rejuvenation. From there, you will be guided to the changing room to get comfortable in a cozy spa robe and sandals. Next up is the Relaxation Circle, where you can enjoy soft lighting, cushy chairs, a rose petal foot soak. You can even order a glass of bubbles and snack plate!

Treat the mom in your life to an individual treatment or a total package for a complete escape from the everyday stresses of life. She’s sure to walk out feeling refreshed, relaxed, and renewed from the likes of a hot stone massage, illuminating facial, exfoliating body scrub and so much more.
