Whether you choose a spa close to your
hometown or a destination that requires some travel, a
spa gift certificate can be a special gift to give and
to receive. Day spa gift certificates with specific services
or spa gift certificates for a longer period of time can
both be an excellent way to give someone a unique and
thoughtful gift. The warmth and beauty of the state of
Arizona has made it a particularly attractive place to
build a spa, and as such there are a number of great spas
found here, including the Canyon
Ranch Spa, Mii Amo
Spa, and Miraval
Resort and Spa, among others.
A spa gift certificate can be an appropriate gift for a range of occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings or just as a treat for someone special. Spa gift certificates are also increasingly popular as company gifts to employees as incentives or for team building activities.
Many spas will offer a range of choices for spa gift certificates. Often, close to holidays such as Valentine’s Day, special packages and Day spa gift certificates will be presented for you. This is a nice way to let the spa put together the perfect combination of spa treatments for your gift. Often special day spa gift certificates when purchased as a package will also be a bit less expensive than if you were to purchase each service ala carte.
While you can of course always walk into a spa during business hours and purchase a gift certificate, it is usually also possible to purchase an online spa gift certificate. In most cases, the spa will still need to mail you the actual online spa gift certificate through the post office, so if you choose to buy online make sure to plan ahead to allow time for the online spa gift certificate to arrive.
General spa services usually include massage, facials, body skin treatments, weight loss treatments, waxing, salon services, pedicures, manicures, salt scrubs, and other specialty services a particular spa might offer. Spas which offer overnight stays will usually also offer fitness classes such as yoga or Pilates, as well as nutrition classes. Most spas which host guests for a day or a week will offer meals, if not small snacks throughout the day.
