How do you honor the women who gave you life?  In the U.S., Canada, Italy, Greece, the Caribbean and many other countries, we celebrate Mother’s Day on the 2nd Sunday in May; in France, it’s usually the last Sunday in May; and in the United Kingdom  it’s the 4th Sunday of Lent.  Each year, children the world over wonder – what can I do for the woman who has given me so much?

I remember the year I took my Mom to London – it happened to be Mum’s Day so we celebrated there with brunch.  Two months later we were home and celebrated the American holiday in May.  Mom was looking for a trifecta that year and we have a good laugh about it still.

This year, amid rising airfares in a down economy, some resorts and spas are planning wonderful girl getaways to help you with a perfect mother daughter escape.  Here are some of them and our travel concierge can assist you with booking:
