‘Tis the season for shopping and gift-giving. A new trend that is emerging is the gift of an experience over a gift of a thing. Luckily, this works for more than just reducing the number of toys a child has—it can help shopping for your S.O. prove to be much easier and more fruitful in possibilities.
One thing we always want for our S.O. is for them to be happy and feel appreciated. What better way to say thank you and that you care about their well-being than the gift of relaxation and pampering? Essentials Spa of Brandon has a vast array of day spa services, from massages and body treatments to hair and nails. Check out these 5 easy (for you) gift ideas that are sure to wow and provide an ideal experience—either for just them to relax and rejuvenate or for you both to share together.
You can’t go wrong with the gift of massage—it is the ideal form of relaxation, after all. Massages help to relax the body as well as the mind, providing the receiver an all-around rejuvenation. Learn more about the reasons why a massage is the best gift to give!
This, in itself, is a large selection of services, each one designed to pamper and help the receiver look and feel more radiant. Essentials Spa offers waxing services, facial treatments, body wraps, and a multitude of hair services.
Spa days are great, but salon days are just as important for the care of our hair. These make an excellent gift for anyone who may be feeling their hair is a bit lackluster or has hinted they could use a change. Purchase a gift card of any amount to go towards one of our many hair services, from cuts and styling to color changes or deep conditioning treatments. We have an excellent selection for any hair care need.
Mani-Pedis are a great way to pamper yourself and care for your hands and feet. Most manicure and pedicure services also include a hand or foot massage, so it’s practically two gifts in one!
Aromatherapy is the use of scented essential oils during a chosen service to elicit a particular response from the inhalation of a certain scent. Some aromatherapy oils help intensify relaxation, like lavender, while others may help to reduce pain, minimize tension, calm the mind, or boost energy. We can apply aromatherapy during several of our spa services such as during a therapeutic or relaxation massage or during a facial treatment.
A massage makes the perfect gift for many reasons! When it comes time to present your gift, there are a few things you can do to make your massage gift certificate more presentable than just a printed paper or gift card and have a little extra meaning. Massage gift certificates are a versatile gift and how you present it to the receiver can increase the impact of the gift.
Get A Massage Certificate From A Professional
Aside from an exchange between spouses, massage certificates are best distributed by a professional. This helps to ensure that the receiver not only gets the ultimate relaxation from a proper massage, but also the experience and the atmosphere that help to further their relaxation. One of the main benefits of a massage gift certificate from a spa is the “permission” to indulge that a receiver often denies themselves.
Provide Some Background For The Gifting Reason
If the person you are gifting a massage to has had massages previously or goes routinely, they likely understand your connection between the massage certificate and themselves. If being gifted a massage is something new, accompany the gift with an explanation. Say something like, “I know you have been busy/under a lot of stress lately and thought being pampered would help alleviate that some.” Or whatever your reason for gifting a massage.
Spruce Up The Delivery/Gift Presentation
Gift cards and gift certificates may be excellent gifts; however, the unveiling is often not as glamorous as a wrapped present. You can make your gift card/certificate for a massage a little more special by creating a gift basket with other presents relating to pampering, like essential oils, candles, bath bombs, wine, chocolates, etc. Another idea is to put your massage gift card in a small box that is wrapped or a seasonally appropriate greeting card.
Essentials Spa of Brandon has gift cards available for purchase in any dollar amount and they can be applied towards any of our services, products, and gratuities. Online gift cards do not expire and paper gift certificates can be requested on site. All gift cards and gift certificates are non-refundable and non-redeemable for cash.
