In a world, when our
loved one seem to have everything that they need, finding the right gift can be a major challenge. No wonder then that according to the National Retail Federation study,
one of the most popular gift items among women these days is a
certificate. It is simply telling you that all those gifts that you bought with all the attention and care were really "useless" for the recipient.
And that is why we had talked
earlier about a spa gift
certificate. Who couldn't use some pampering and relaxation these days?
Spas offer stress-relief, pampering, and results. Spa gift
certificates are a wonderful way to show friends, family, employees, or the one you love, how much you care. And, Kile Law, president of Blue Water Spa, has

Spa gift certificates are available in either dollar amounts or by custom designed treatments and packages. I personally like the ones that have the dollar

A popular trend today is treatments using more than one therapist. While it feels good to have several professionals working on you, it is also ideal for
those people who just do not have the time to have several procedures done in succession. That is why there is nothing quite like
a facial (which includes a
massage of the face, neck, shoulders, upper back, hands and arms)
mini facial combined with a second therapist simultaneously
massaging the feet with both hands and hot
stones. This type of treatment is absolutely decadent and can be surprisingly affordable.
When considering a
spa service for a
man, be sure the environment is comfortable for a gentleman. Overstuffed sofas, needlepoint wall hangings, and co-ed
waiting areas can be very intimidating to men. Instead, look for an upscale, contemporary environment with privacy.
Ask about gift certificate delivery. For those of us who wait until the last minute, gift certificates that can be purchased over the phone can be a big help. In most cases, gift certificates can even be emailed to ensure “on-time” delivery.

Be sure to ask the spa’s policy on aestheticians
and other professionals leaving the room during a treatment. The therapist should be in the room at all times
delivering pampering, relaxation, and results. A client who is left alone can feel forgotten and uneasy and certainly they are not getting the best treatment
