Before heading off to the florist or jeweler for Mother's Day in Detroit this year, take heed of what moms really want: a little R&R.

For some moms, relaxation just means a little break from daily life. For Mother's Day, that might be brunch, a walk around the Cranbrook gardens or a hands-on ceramics class at Pewabic Pottery.

But many mothers would just love the professional pampering of a spa. According to a survey from Ebates, a day at the spa is the number one gift mothers desire, though men often mistakenly believe women most want flowers.

"Everyone's lives are so hectic and stressful," explained Lois Lombardo, owner of Olympia Salon and Spa in Mt. Clemens. "Sometimes it's nicer to get someone this kind of gift so they can rewind and regenerate -- especially moms -- because they're giving out so much of themselves."

Olympia Salon and Spa is one of the many, many spas in the Detroit area with specialities including saunas, holistic health treatments, and upscale luxury. If you're looking for a Mother's Day gift, check out the below gallery for some of the choice spas for relaxation as well as under-the-radar, offbeat destinations in and around Detroit.
