Mother's Day 2012 Travel Deals

Mother's Day 2012 is May 13 and if you're still struggling what to get the person who would give you everything, consider what she likely needs most: A little time off.

Hotels around the country are packaging rooms with extras  - like Mother's Day brunch, spa treatments, even a life coach - to make your gift giving easier this year. Here are four hotels getting in on the action:

Luxury on Amelia Island, Fla.
