Brunch at Bardot Brasserie has something special for any mom. (Kevin J. McCullough)

How to make Mother's Day fabulous,Vegas-style? Exotic spa treatments, fancy brunches, yoga on the Strip -- we'll show you how to do it, the Sin City way. And treat her (or your wife) to these Vegas Mother's Da y specials Pamper Mom to the max with the perfect spa package -- there are about a million to choose from throughout the city. Share tea and scones in a private suite with the Spa & Salon Bellagio Mother & Daughter Package, which includes an organic manicure and pedicure. Or treat mom to a muchneeded day of relaxation, sans kids, with a Milk and Honey body treatment at Bathhouse Spa at Delano Las Vegas. Book a relaxing day of beauty at the Spa & Salon at Aria, which comes complete with manicure, pedicure and blow-out that can precede a glamorous night on the town.

Your wife may well be a mother too, so don't leave her out. Or, if she's on the way, try MGM Grand's Mommy to-Be Massage, which uses special techniques for expectant moms.

Brunch may be a Mother's Day staple, but Mother's Day brunch in Vegas is something else entirely. At Aria's Bardot Brasserie, James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina's new restaurant, every mom can enjoy unlimited French Rosé, along with a dish like the Hunter 's Waffle with duck confit, root vegetable hash, poached egg, and maltaise sauce. Go fun and fancy with the Fountains Brunch at Jasmine, the perfect complement to the famous Bellagio water show.

For something different, treat Mom to a one-of-a-kind Vegas moment. The Cirque Insider Access package includes an intimate backstage tour of "O" by Cirque du Soleil, premium center section seating, front-of-line access to the "O" Theatre and concessions, and exclusive Cirque du Soleil merchandise including the show's soundtrack.

Another way to reinforce your Mom bond: do a sun salutation together on the Strip. Monte Carlo's free Saturday morning Yoga in the Plaza—set strip-side in the resort's beautifully renovated plaza—is a revitalizing way to connect through deep stretching, breathing and balancing; all the things she's done for you (or your kids), and will continue to do forever.
