The holidays and stress seem to go hand in hand. Taking some of the stress off your sweetheart this season and giving gifts that will help them to relax is a thoughtful way to take care of the one you love. You can do some extravagant things like lease out an entire restaurant for an hour or so to take a break together and relax, but there are other things that you can do that are just as thoughtful and a lot less expensive.
Take a Weekend Trip
The hustle and bustle of the season are enough to make anyone feel on edge. Relaxing during the holidays can mean a short getaway for the weekend. Lease a car, rent a hotel room somewhere, and just spend some time together away from your everyday spaces.
You do not have to travel too far to enjoy the relaxation of getting away from it all. Gifting your loved one with your time is always an appropriate gift that is appreciated. Make it a surprise to make the gift even better.
Make all the plans yourself. Pack up the car, grab some roses (they are the number one cut flower and a symbol of love), and book a hotel. Even an overnight jaunt will bring your sweetheart a bit of relaxation, and the fact that you set it all up as a surprise will be really valued.
Book A Spa Appointment
Has your sweetheart talked about some treatments that spas have to offer? The holidays are a great time to give a gift of a day in the spa. Want to really make a huge impression? Lease a party van or other transport and buy two packages, one for your sweetheart and one for a friend or family member to accompany them. Spa visits are a great way to relax, enjoy some self-care, and feel loved. According to a 2017 Spa State Industry Report, spa visits are so popular that about 70% of clients are return visitors.
Book a Massage
A little pre-holiday gift that can help to reduce tension and stress is a great idea. Book a massage appointment for your sweetheart to help reduce stress. Want to go really fancy and take the gift over the top? Lease a limo for a few hours to take your love to the appointment. Let your sweetheart sit back and enjoy the ride.
Massage sessions vary in cost and typically are from 15 to 90 minutes long. The type of massage and how much time your sweetheart can commit to the appointment will dictate how long the session will be. A massage is a great way to help pamper your sweetheart and help them to destress.
Give the Gift of a Clean Home
Holidays are not only stressful, but things can get messy. Your partner may be very stressed about all the things to do before the holidays and after. A gift of maid service for a specific period of time can take the stress out of the holidays by reducing the to-do list greatly.
There are so many gifts that can make the season a little more magical for your sweetheart and a lot less stressful. Focusing on gifts that are thoughtful and that help to reduce your partner’s stress during the holiday season will be really appreciated. One of the easiest ways to make this holiday season magical for your sweetheart is to roll up your sleeves and take over the tasks while they spend the day taking care of themselves.
