Are you searching the Internet in a blind sweat because you forgot a birthday, anniversary, or the all-important Mother’s Day?
Do you need a last-minute gift that can be sent directly to the recipient’s email? Is reading this paragraph stressing you out to the point that you need your very own spa day?
Well, for all these reasons and more, look no further than a WaySpa Gift Card – Canada’s favourite gift for pampering and relaxation.
The Nuts and Bolts of a WaySpa Gift Card
Whether you have received a WaySpa Gift Card or are considering gifting one, it would be helpful to know exactly what it is.
WaySpa Gift Cards are a universal gift card accepted at hundreds of spas, salons, and fitness studios across Canada. So you can visit your neighbourhood massage hot spot or take the WaySpa Gift Card on the road with you and splurge on the wellness destination vacation of your dreams.
And you don’t need to worry about the spa closing down before you use your gift certificate or not having the treatment you are most interested in. With a WaySpa Gift Card, you can find the right location and the right spa for you.
How to Purchase a WaySpa Gift Card
WaySpa Gift Cards are available online for purchase, and you can either opt to have the gift certificate mailed directly to the lucky person, or you can email them a digital copy.
The emailed version can be either sent to them immediately (last-minute gifters—this one’s for you!) or scheduled to be sent on a different date.
WaySpa Gift Cards can also be purchased in some retail locations such as grocery stores where gift cards are available. The gift cards never expire, so you can always keep a few in your gifting closet for those last-minute moments when you need a gift.
You never know when your son decides to bring a girlfriend to Christmas as a surprise. Or when you need a stellar hostess gift! These WaySpa Gift Cards are a big hit no matter who you are gifting them to.
The perk of the online WaySpa Gift Card shop is you can personalize the gift card to any event. We offer tons of designs created to celebrate birthdays, holidays, weddings, graduations, or even enjoying a wellness break.
Just select the design you like and send it off to your loved one. They will be sure to love any option you pick.
Who Wants a WaySpa 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 recognizes that wellness isn’t a luxury but, in fact, a reason for living.
Spas are even starting to see more of a 50-50 split between men and women. And as more schools utilize yoga 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 considering gifting a WaySpa gift card. Get creative!
Sure, moms, grandmas, wives, and girlfriends will love a WaySpa gift card. But consider it an excellent option for employee appreciation, school raffles, or even as a groomsman’s gift, not to mention birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, congratulations, weddings, baby showers, teacher gifts, Boss’s Day, Galentine’s Day…well, you get the idea.
How Much to Gift on a WaySpaGift Card?
WaySpa Gift Cards can be purchased in any amount between $25 and $500. 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 an excellent option for someone who wants maybe to try a yoga class for the first time. But for a popular treatment like a massage or facial, $100 is the gold standard.
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 (see Does Price Matter When Getting a Facial?)
- $125 to $200: Specialty massage like a hot stone massage
- $200 to $350: Two or more services at most spas
- $350 and up: Half-and full-day spa packages
Resort and wellness spas are more expensive, and luxury urban hotel spas are usually even more pricey. WaySpa 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 WaySpa 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 WaySpa gift card.
You always want to double-check with the spa about using your gift card on the rare occurrence of a recent policy change in regards to your WaySpa gift card.
But once you are at your appointment, feel free to use your gift certificate just like cash. If there is a balance left over after paying for your treatment, then the spa can offer you store credit.
As for gratuity, if you plan on using your WaySpa 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.
