mothers day guide HH

Your mother has nurtured and cared for you your whole life. Now you can do the same for her. (Well, almost.) Give her the gift of pampering massage, nurturing skincare, healthy nails and beautiful hair with a Zanya Spa Salon gift card. This gift is only for her – she can’t buy the kids’ sneakers or use it to pay bills. So it is truly a gift!

And it is as good as cash at Zanya Spa Salon, so she can choose any services she’d like: facial, massage, pedicure and manicure, haircut, color or blow out, even an airbrush tan or waxing. Also, she can shop for beautiful spring and summer clothes, effective and luxurious skincare and haircare products or a shiny bangle or bauble from the boutique.

Visit our online store to purchase her gift certificate instantly at https://zanyaspa.boomtime.com/lgift. Or, stop in any day at 287 South Main Street (Route 29 South) in Lambertville, NJ.

Volunteer

3935695842_c3635dccd6_oThey say that the happiest people are those who give to others. Planning a day of volunteering with mom might be a great way for you both to get closer to each other and also feel like you’re helping the community and those less fortunate. Volunteering can be anything from helping out at the soup kitchen to walking a dog from a shelter and there are plenty of places in Hunterdon to do this. Brighten your Mom’s Mother’s Day by brightening lives of others together! Check out some local charities here.
