Don’t Forget Mother’s Day! 3 Last Minute Gift Ideas to Boost Sales

close formula

 Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated days of the year! With everyone crazy busy, and more than a few procrastinators out there, you can give a quick boost to your service and retail sales by reminding clients you have the best mom gifts. Kick off the Sunday before Mother’s Day and blast special offers daily on your social media pages, website and client email newsletters.


Below you’ll find 3 great gift ideas that will make your clients become mom’s hero!


1. Custom Salon & Spa Packages
Let mom pick 3 services for one price from a set menu of options. You decide what price fits your clientele and what services to offer in combination for the price. Examples: manicures, pedicures, blow/style service, deep conditioning, cut, color – create your own appropriately priced menu of choices. This gives her the opportunity to pick and choose what she wants and needs.



2. Mani-Pedi for Mom
Moms always LOVE this gift. Hands down – and feet, too – for that matter! Package these services for one price and include a free gift such as purse size hand or body lotion, deep conditioning treatment with next haircut, travel size shampoo and conditioner or other retail item moms can use. Think” trying” may promote “buying” on her next visit!


3. Host a “Mommy & Me” Styling Class
Offer a two hour lesson for moms and daughters on how to style hair. Since space is limited, charge a deposit which can then be used on the night of the event toward retail product purchases. This is a great way to introduce styling services and the purchase of retail products, which will boost your weekly revenue.



Sometimes clients just need a little nudge to remind them how special moms are, and they’ll thank you for making gift giving easy and meaningful.
