When offering a spa gift certificate, consider the following.

Spa gift certificates are available in either dollar amounts or by custom designed treatments and packages.
Some of the best gifts are things that one would typically not consider purchasing for themselves. A popular trend today is treatments using more than one therapist. There is nothing quite like a facial (which includes a massage of the face, neck, shoulders, upper back, hands and arms) combined with a laser technician simultaneously doing hair removal or a photorejuvenation procedure.

When considering a spa service for a man, be sure the environment is comfortable for a gentleman. Overstuffed sofas, needlepoint wall hangings, and especially co-ed waiting areas can be very intimidating to men. An upscale, contemporary environment with privacy is more attractive.

Offer delivery of gift certificates (mail or online download). For those who wait until the last minute, gift certificates that can be purchased over the phone or online can be a big help. In most cases, gift certificates can even be emailed to ensure “on-time” delivery.

Most valuable gift certificates offered by medical spas are for laser hair reduction and non-invasive photorejuvenation.
