Holiday Gift Ideas
Adding to the fast pace and stress of this time of year is the dilemma of what gifts to get for those closest to us. Some people just aren't easy to shop for, but the spa industry provides several ideas for a variety of personality types.
For the hectic business person in your life, perhaps a gift certificate to a spa in your area would be a welcome surprise. Throw in not only a relaxing massage, but a manicure, pedicure or haircut as well. Many spas have holiday packages and discounts this time of year so shop around and make sure you get the biggest bang for your buck.
Many spas also sell their featured products in the form of gift baskets. If they don't have what you are looking for, pick and choose the products you want and make your own gift box. When thinking of which products to buy, think of the area you are in and choose products unique to your geographic location. Visit the spa Web site and see what kind of variety they offer in terms of services as well as products.
Gift options include CA Botana's Sea Enzyme Home Care set with Vanilla Body Cream and your choice of one of two scrubs, Eggnog Vanilla Sugar or Mocha Espresso Sugar (www.ca-botana.com). Another option is the Aqua Dessa Therapy Wine Scrub which uses crushed Cabernet grape seeds, red wine, grape seed oil and vitamins A and E. The Aqua Dessa Spa Therapy Wine Bath is made with real Napa valley red wine, grape seed oil, raspberry, blackberry, blueberry and strawberry extracts (www.aquadessa.com).
These are just a few ideas to help you bring the spa experience to someone special this holiday season, whether you give the gift of relaxation in the form of a day at the spa or whether you bring the spa to your home.
