Who Wants a Spafinder Gift Card
While Mother’s Day still reigns supreme when it comes to spa gift certificates, it’s not just hard working moms who appreciate a trip to the spa. The wellness industry is booming as more and more people consider self-care mandatory. The public recognize that wellness isn’t a luxury but, in fact, a reason for living.
In fact, in 2019, spas were seeing more of a 50-50 split between men and women attending spas according to the New York Post. And as more schools utilize yoga as a tool to regulate emotions for kids, wellness has been top of mind for just about everyone on your list.
So don’t limit yourself to the usual suspects when you are considering gifting a Spafinder gift card. Get creative! Sure, moms, grandmas, wives, and girlfriends will love a Spafinder gift card. But consider it a great option for employee appreciation, school raffles, or even as a groomsman’s gift.
How Much to Gift on a Spafinder Gift Card
Spafinder Gift Cards can be purchased in any amount between $25 and $500 with the alternative option of adding multiple gift cards for up to $2,000. And while any amount is appreciated, consider the person you are buying it for and what treatment they might be interested in. A $25 gift card is a great option for someone who wants to splurge on a new product in our Spafinder Wellness Shop or maybe would like to try out a group Pilates class. But for a popular treatment like a massage or facial, $100 is the gold standard.
According to Trip Savvy, price will vary depending on the spa and location but here is the range you can expect
$50 to $75: spa manicure, pedicure, or waxing
$100 to $150: massage, facial, or body treatment
$125 to $150: Specialty massage like a hot stone massage
$200 to $350: Two or more services at most spas
$350 and up: Half-and full-day packages
Resort and wellness spas are more expensive, and luxury urban hotel spas are usually more pricey.
Spafinder Gift Cards can be meant to cover the entire spa treatment or be used to supplement the cost. The choice is up to the receiver.
Been Gifted a Spafinder Gift Card? Here’s How to Use It!
Once you have chosen your treatment and spa, let them know at the time of booking that you plan to use a Spafinder gift card. You always want to double check with the spa about using your gift card on the rare occurrence that there’s been a recent policy change in regards to your Spafinder gift card. But once you are at your appointment, feel free to use your gift certificate just like cash. If you have a single-use gift card and have a balance on the gift certificate, then the spa can offer you store credit. If you have a multi-use gift card, you can then use the remainder on another treatment at that spa or a different spa location.
As for gratuity, if plan on using your Spafinder Gift Card to tip, be sure to double check with the establishment to make sure that it’s allowed. For more information about spa etiquette, read this useful helper guide on our blog.
