Picking a gift for spa lovers
With our busy lifestyles, many of us find it tough to find the time to look after our wellness -- that's why spa experience gifts make for the perfect present. Whether your loved one has neglected their self-care routine to look after others, is going through a tough time or is training hard for a challenge, they deserve to be pampered -- and they’ll appreciate being given the chance for some rest and relaxation.
If you're searching for a gift for a spa lover, there are many incredible options to choose from. Depending on the occasion and circumstances, you could give them an opulent spa break, a whole day's worth of pampering or even a single treatment. Take a look through our guide to helping you pick a gift for spa lovers and you'll never need to worry about a birthday, anniversary or Christmas present again.
A luxurious treat: spa day or break
What could be more special than treating your loved one to a break from the stresses of daily life? Opt for a luxurious spa day with treatments, a glass of bubbles and an afternoon tea, or consider booking a break with all of those included plus an overnight stay and maybe dinner too.
A spa break is absolutely ideal for a loved one who could really benefit from a boost. The tranquillity of a spa setting mixed with the calming aromas of essential oils could be just what your recipient needs.
These days and breaks make excellent gifts for Christmas, Mother's Day, anniversaries, special birthdays and Valentine's Day.
Help them to relax with a spa treatment
The gift of a spa treatment can melt away stress in more than one respect.
There's an incredible range of spa treatments to choose from, according to the needs of your loved one. Our top tip here is to match the treatment to the individual, ensuring the gift is tailored to their personal needs. If they regularly complain of a sore back, neck and shoulders, then a massage could be the ideal experience present. Or, if they're always on their feet, let them take the weight off and pamper their feet with a pedicure.
You'll certainly be able to find what you're looking for from one of the many beautiful spa locations across the country. Once you've given the gift, all your recipient will need to do is call the salon or spa in question and arrange a time and date to suit them. Et voilà!
It takes two: couples gifts
If you've been searching for a fabulous gift to buy a couple, or you're part of a couple and are looking for something to do together, spa gifts are ideal. What could be better for a special anniversary than a spa day including a couple's massage, a glass of bubbly each and a delicious lunch in a peaceful setting?
The key element of any couples spa gift is that you're reserving precious time for them to spend together. If it's for a special occasion, why not go all out and book a night or two away on a spa break? Go on, treat them!
Take the spa experience home
Discover what your loved one's favourite aspect of a spa experience is and help them take some of that zen home with them. Do they love the way their skin feels after a salt scrub, or is it the smell of the oils, or possible even the feel of the fluffy spa towels?
Once you know what helps them to relax, you can add to your experience gift to make the relaxation part of their everyday life. You can even schedule yourself a regular reminder to drop them a text or phone call to encourage them to treat themselves and use the product you got them. Sometimes, all someone needs is a bit of gentle encouragement to look after themselves.
