The Gift of Relaxation

Do you know someone who tirelessly works to take care of others? Maybe your wife puts in a full day at the office, only to return home to find a hungry family, a messy house and kids who need help with homework. Or perhaps you’ve noticed that your child’s teacher has given a lot of her free time to help needy students.

If you look around, you’ll probably realize that you have lots of extraordinary friends and loved ones who would appreciate a day of relaxation and pampering. You can treat those special people in your life to an experience they will truly enjoy and remember with a gift certificate to a day spa. When buying a spa gift certificate, you will likely have the choice of purchasing for a specific dollar amount, or selecting a specific service. If you’re on a tight budget, spring for a manicure, pedicure or waxing.

At a spa, these services will include extras that will make them last longer and feel more luxurious, such as an aromatic salt rub, hydrating mask, hot towel wrap, hot stone massage or paraffin dip. For a little more money, your gift card will pay for a relaxing massage, nourishing facial or a cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating body treatment. Keep in mind that most gift certificates to individual spas expire after one year, so make sure your recipient uses it in time. Also, remember to include the tip on the gift certificate. Often, a guest will think that everything is taken care of and unwittingly stiff the spa staff.

You really can’t go wrong with a gift certificate to a day spa. They’re easy to buy, you can spend almost any amount, and that selfless person in your life is sure to know how special you think she is.
