It happened again. Mother’s Day is this Sunday and you forgot to get a gift for the amazing lady who gave you life.
Mom always says she really doesn’t need anything but you know that’s just mom-speak for, “you better get me flowers.” LOL. Save yourself the embarrassment of showing up to brunch with a CVS bag full of candy and wilted roses and check out some of my favorite options that you can get locally in Miami.

Staycation Spa Day at Marriott Harbor Beach Resort
Last weekend I whisked my grandparents away for a much-needed staycation at the Marriot Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Ft. Lauderdale. (Did you catch the fun on my instastory?) I still can’t get over the incredible bamboo massage I was treated to at the spa. Yes, bamboo! Unconventional, but oh so effective. I like to think that I’m a spa connoisseur, and I was pleasantly surprised by the numerous amenities the Harbor Beach spa had to offer, including sauna, eucalyptus steam rooms, and private salt-water spa pool with underwater music. (Fancy!) Kidnap your mom for the weekend or just a day and book her for the “Mothers Escape” Package featuring their new Elemis Muscle Melter Massage and Instant Radiance Facial.
- Price: Mother’s Escape Package, $180
- Appointment required. Book online here.
- Don’t miss the scrub bar! Custom design your own body scrub to enhance your spa experience.
DIY Getaway Kit
Handmade gifts are always the sweetest because there’s
nothing more precious than giving our time. Whenever I’m pressed for time but
still want to gift something personalized, I love making themed gift baskets
filled with a multitude of goodies. For my abuela, I put together a special
getaway kit for our staycation featuring cute beach essentials found at Marshalls.
(If you follow my instastories you know my love for Marshalls is next level.) If
your mama needs her own staycation, pick up a new pair of sunnies, some bright
nail polish, and a tropical travel fragrance and tuck them inside a brightly
colored leather travel pouch that doubles as a makeup bag. (This pretty floral bag
from Marshalls is Italian leather and was under $20!) Roll up a beach towel and
toss it all in a chic straw tote and you’ve got yourself a one-of-a-kind gift
