Whether it’s your loved ones birthday or your anniversary, it’s always a thoughtful idea to pamper someone to tell them how much they mean to you. Whether it’s your partner, a friend or your mum, everyone loves a pamper day.
One of the best ways to help someone relax and unwind is to take them to a spa for the day. There are a range of treatments from relaxing facials to full back massages to de-stress and revitalize someone. Spa days are the ultimate pamper session. You can get passes for half a day, or you can opt for relaxing full day spas.
Not everyone finds getting their back rubbed or getting into a clay bath relaxing, so seek out treatments that won’t make them feel uncomfortable. Facials or hand and foot manicures are great as they don’t take as long as a full massage but can still make someone feel pampered without taking up the whole day.
Pampering someone can make them feel special and booking a makeover and photoshoot is a sure fire way to make that person feel at their best and their most glamorous. Why not try a mother-daughter makeover photo shoot or a couple’s shoot? It’s a great way to commemorate the day and have a memory long after the special event.
After you’ve done the spa or photo shoot take them out for lunch or afternoon tea. Many spa centre’s will have smoothie bars and some will offer a two course lunch or afternoon tea as part of a package. Choose a relaxing place to have lunch. A busy food court won’t exactly make someone feel treated and pampered. A riverside location, park, or quaint tea room will help someone to feel at ease. If the weather’s good, take a picnic with you and relax in a national trust park, zoo or by a river.
Shopping is another great way to pamper someone. Being treated and spoilt is always good but check where they’d want to go first. Dragging someone around a busy shopping centre for hours can leave them with a sore feet and a banging headache - not the most relaxing of activities. Although you may want to treat them to an expensive handbag, check whether they’d rather have a few new outfits instead. Buying them something they’ve wanted for a while will be a treat they appreciate.
Tailor the day to their interests and hobbies. If your girlfriend/friend/mum is a Mary Berry wannabee, consider putting them on a cupcake making class. Some people find cooking therapeutic and this may just be their idea of a pamper day. Similarly if they’re a sociable person, a cocktail making course could be right up their street. Alternatively in the evening take them out for cocktails. If they’ve just had a makeover, it’s a great way they can continue feeling glam and show off their enhanced look.
Pamper days can end up being expensive, so when the evening comes, home cook their favourite meal or even order their favourite food. Buy something fizzy and sit and relax listening to some music or put on a feel good film. If you have deeper pockets, then take your loved one out for a meal, it’s a great way to finish off the day.
