Spa crafted linens

This holiday season, give the gift of relaxation and stress reduction. Most people feel stressed during this busy time. How can you reduce your own stress, while also providing that same stress relief to those around you? These gifts are sure to promote relaxation, comfort, and an overall reduction of stress.

Gift card for a day at the spa
Spa days can do wonders for stress relief. The entire day is spent relaxing and receiving pampering spa treatments. More and more people are beginning to realize the benefits of a stress free day. Millennials especially are growing up and starting to take wellness seriously because 56% of them have visited a spa within the last year, according to the International Spa Association. The one barrier that reduces spa frequencies is cost. This makes a gift card for a day at the spa the perfect holiday gift. Gift this relaxation to your parents, your spouse, your boss, or even your delivery carrier.

A bath and relaxation home kit
What if you could receive the same relaxing services of a spa, while at home? Create a bath and relaxation home kit for that special person in your life. Fill the home relaxation kit with bath salts, bath bubbles, and wonderful smelling candles. You can even top off the kit with moisturizing facial products or professional quality spa linens. Many local spas sell their products to customers, meaning you can gift the same exact quality products from the salon.

High quality bedding products
Many Americans do not get the recommended amount of sleep. In fact, stress affects more than your daily activities. Those that are incredibly stressed find it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep at night. The lack of sleep then leads to increased stress levels. It seems to be a never ending cycle that never leads to a good night of sleep or full stress relief. If you know someone that has a difficult time getting to sleep after a long and stressful day, consider gifting home spa linens. These are spa products that are of salon quality. You can purchase spa linens either from your local favorite spa or from an online spa inventory store.

Massage treatment
If you are on a budget, gifting a full day spa might be too expensive. This doesn?t mean that you can?t gift a single spa service. One of the most popular spa services is massages. Approximately 28% of people report receiving a massage to relieve stress. While many people agree with the health benefits of massages, many do not make the effort to schedule and pay for their own. However, if you cover the costs, they are more likely to go in for their massage. Massages work at relieving stress in both the mind and the body.

Day at a local hot tub
Hot tub room entrances are extremely affordable and they offer many healthy stress free advantages. Think about how relaxing your last hot bath was. What if you didn?t have to run that bath or clean it after you were finished? According to a study conducted by Pool and Spa Marketing, there are more than 7.3 million hot tubs in the United States. Additionally, spa rooms are becoming a growing trend. Pay for a day in a hot tub room for your favorite person. If you are lucky, maybe they will invite you along.

Spa days have proven to be extremely successful in reducing stress. If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift this gift giving season, why not give the gift of stress reduction? If your budget does not allow for a full spa day, consider single spa services like massages or hot tub rooms. You can also gift the same spa environment but in a home setting with spa linens, salon quality hair products, and professional nail products. Most people feel overwhelming stressed at some point, what better gift could there be than ultimate stress relief?
