The Gift of Relaxation – A Complete Holiday Guide
Holiday shopping can turn even the merriest of folks into a serious Scrooge. The schlepping, the lines and the “perfect gift” search can easily put a damper on the cheer of the season. So this year, we’ve put together our list of favorite spa gifts to treat anyone on your shopping list, even the hardest people to buy for! So sit back, pour yourself another glass of eggnog, and relax this holiday season – because we’ve got you sorted.
The man in your life
Give your significant other a good old-fashioned schvitz with Platza, a traditional Russian body treatment performed in a steaming sauna. Your man will be tapped and scrubbed with a traditional oak leaf brush soaked in a natural astringent that will open his pores, remove toxins and leave him feeling good as new – especially after a finishing dip in the cold plunge pool!
The go-getter best friend
Taking on the corporate world day in and day out can really take a toll on your body and mind. So for the ladder-climbing bestie in your life, a relaxing massage will really go the distance. We are super partial to a rub of the deep tissue kind, but a lovely relaxation session incorporating seasonal aromatherapy wouldn’t go amiss either. Either way, it’s 60 minutes of phone-free time, which might be just what she needs to get revved up to tackle 2016.
The Mom who puts everyone else first
If you have the kind of mom who puts herself last on the list, a relaxing, invigorating facial might be just what Santa ordered. Facials are one of our favorite spa treatments because in addition to being luxurious, they also provide a solid dose of hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and give the skin a megawatt holiday glow. We know that moms like ours would never treat themselves to pampering like this, but we also know how much they deserve it.
The workaholic Dad
Let’s face it – most guys don’t take care of their skin with the same love and attention that women do. When it comes to Dad, after a long week at work, an ice-cold beverage and a prime spot in front of the TV might seem like the ultimate in relaxation. Up his game this year with a melt-worthy body scrub to sod off dead skin cells and deliver a big boost of hydration. Combine it with a couple of hours in the sauna and steam room and you’ll have a new man on your hands. Think of it as an extra gift for mom too!
The impossible Secret Santa
There’s nothing worse than drawing an unknown name from the Secret Santa basket. Luckily, this year, you’ll be the talk of the holiday party by gifting a Wet Lounge Day Pass, the ultimate winter warmer for just about anyone – from the spa novice to the old pro. Think about spending the afternoon in the company of a Swedish sauna, Russian sauna, Turkish bath, steaming hot tub and cold plunge pool, all with a cocktail in hand of course. Need we say more?
