This year, many people I know are wanting to give a different type of Christmas gift than they normally give to those on their list. The pandemic and the stresses of finances, social distancing and isolation have made many of us reconsider what is really needed in life. I read an article on “presents that pamper” and decided this is something I should share with my friends. I normally give my sister jewelry, but am considering a massage gift certificate. I am confident that spas can operate safely when the proper cleaning techniques are in place and masks are worn. Other ideas in the article were facial gift certificates, spray tans, as well as aesthetic services to medical spas. Personally, I would love a gift certificate to my hairdresser’s salon, so that is something else I might consider getting for a loved one. It’s fun to think outside the box and goodness knows 2020 has given us lots of practice at doing just that.
