Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether you think it’s the most romantic day of the year or nothing more than a Hallmark holiday, chances are you’re probably planning to shop for a gift. Most of us don’t spend enough time on ourselves, which is why pampering gifts are perfect for pretty much anyone.

These are some spa gifts and pampering ideas to give your sweetheart this year to provide him or her with a little relaxation and rejuvenation.

Hot Shell Massage

Maybe you’ve heard of hot stone massages, but what about a hot shell massage? The two massage types are similar, but this one draws heat from inside lava shells with a mixture of minerals, algae, salt water, and essential oils. Massage therapists use real shells from the Philippines and is perfect for applying soothing massage without painful pressure. This warming massage lasts for an hour and feels great on a cold winter day.

Deep Sea Mud Wrap

Dead Sea mud is 100 percent pure and has detoxifying and re-mineralizing effects. A Dead Sea mud wrap treatment begins with a dry brush exfoliation to remove skin cells and boost circulation. Then after the mud is applied to the legs, arms, and back, a spa professional removes it with warm towels and applies a hydrating Shea butter mixture to moisturize dry winter skin. This is a great gift for anyone who wants to try something different and completing soothing at the spa.

Gentlemen Refiner Facial

Spa gifts aren’t just for women, and there some wonderful spa treatments that cater towards men too. The Gentlemen Refiner Facial soothes skin from razor irritation and keeps skin hydrated and protected from the outside environment. It’s great for guys that sometimes get ingrown hairs from shaving or that are concerned about the appearance of their skin due to aging. The experience lasts about 50 minutes and is a great pampering experience for the man in your life.

Thermal Wrap

Having a thermal wrap is all about promoting well-being from the inside out. This experience involves having warm linens soaked in geranium oil to wrap your body, which promotes muscle relaxation and stress relief. It’s a great warm-up to getting a massage or facial, so you can easily package this wrap together with another spa treatment for an ultimate Valentine’s Day gift. It’s the perfect idea for your stressed-out spouse or lover.

Bathhouse Experience

If you’re in the Brooklyn area, then definitely consider giving the gift of a bathhouse experience this Valentine’s Day. This old-style bathhouse spans 10,000 square feet and has a steam room, three saunas, icy pool, and therapeutic Jacuzzi. Signature treatments include the birch leaves treatment and the salt body scrubs. This experience makes a great “couples gift” that you can do along with your special someone.

Sea Mani-Pedi

Manis and pedis never go out of style, and almost everyone can enjoy from some healthy nail care during the dry winter months. The Sea Mani-Pedi appeals to those of us who love the ocean and being at the beach. Marine-based products extend from scrubs, soaks, lotions, and masks. Cuticle care, polish, and massage are included in this gift package as well.

If you’re like most busy people, you don’t take nearly enough time out to pamper yourself. Although many people see the value of spa services, such as massages, skin treatments, and acupuncture, they don’t take the time to invest in their own personal wellness. This is one of the very best reasons that spa services make excellent surprise gifts for your family and friends!

At FunSherpa, we can set you up with relaxing and rejuvenating gifts for your spouse, friends, parents, in-laws, boss, neighbors, or even for yourself. Spa gift surprises are also perfect for the person you know who is hard to shop for or seems to have everything. These are a few of the many spa services that we’re excited about this spring.

Aromatherapy Massage

Don’t settle for just any old massage! Aromatherapy massages combine the healing powers of aromatherapy with traditional Swedish massage. You can choose which essential oils you’d like for your massage, which will be blended for your individual health needs. Lie back, relax, and tap into your underutilized sense of smell.

Flotation Tank Relaxation

Defy gravity and relax the muscles in your body inside a custom-designed flotation tank! A two-hour session in a flotation tank is said to be the equivalent of eight hours of deep sleep. You will experience an intensified level of consciousness in your mind and body as you float in a 8-foot by 4-foot by 4-foot enclosed tank, which eliminates outside light and sound. The tank holds 10 inches of water, heated to approximately 93.5F, and dissolved Epsom Salts, allowing the human body to effortlessly float.

Acupuncture Body Treatments

Acupuncture treatments can provide relief for everything from pain, digestive disorders, weight loss, stress, anxiety, jet lag, smoking cessation, and detoxification. You can experience the healing therapies of traditional Chinese medicine for yourself with professionals in a safe, sterile environment.

Express Facial

Whether you’re pressed for time or just prefer to make your spa trips as efficient as possible, there are express facial options that refresh and renew your skin in no time at all. Express facials typically include thorough cleansing, exfoliation, a mask, and moisturizing.

Thermal Wrap

Pamper yourself with warm linens drenched in soothing geranium oil as you relax with a premium massage. Thermal wrap treatments are known to soothe aching muscles and calmly ease your stresses away. Many people choose to undergo this treatment prior to receiving a full massage or facial because it relieves daily stresses in a comfortable and luxurious way.
