certificate for husband
How to buy one? What to look
Cheryl is what you call as the spa-girl. She takes excellent care of her body, particularly skin, and definitely the results are visible. “On the other hand, my husband has never even
a spa. And now that he is entering his forties, the results are visible. He definitely doesn’t look great since his
skin is starting to
age. What can I do to drag him to the spa?” she asks.
Indeed many men think that being a man is all about not taking care of their skin and being “tough.” They take pride in not even
putting sunscreen on their
bodies. While you might never be able to convince him to go on his own or with you, how about a spa gift certificate in his name so that if he doesn’t go, the money will be wasted. And my expectation is that once he realizes what a
spa trip can do, he will be more receptive to go with you in the future.
Kile Law, president of Blue Water Spa, has some great tips on how to select the right gift certificate for people like your husband.
While it is always good to send him to the spa that you go to, 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. If your spa meets these requirements, then great. If not, visit the web site of the spa before you do anything. That will give you an idea of the spa’s environment, their experience, and philosophy. The spa experience begins when a guest enters the door. By taking a virtual tour, you can get an idea of what the experience will be.
Spa gift certificates are available in either dollar amounts or by custom designed treatments and packages. I would recommend that you put together a package for him and let the certificate be in his name and clearly say that it is non-refundable and non-transferable. While you know him best, it is best to stick to some simple treatments like
a massage and
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
treatments 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) 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.
Be sure to ask the spa’s policy on aestheticians (facialists) 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 possible.
