A Spa Treatment or Spa Massage in Cape Town is a fantastic gift for any busy professional – just the thing to allow a hard working career girl or guy the chance to unwind, relax and then re-focus with renewed vigour. Ginkgo Spa has an online spa voucher shop, making sending and paying for a gift voucher quick and easy. Ideal for a birthday, thank-you, etc. present from one busy professional to another.
However, like all perfect gift ideas, this great gift voucher present can have a minor flaw. Because by being a busy professional, the recipient may not ever get round to redeeming the voucher. As there is nothing like being pampered to make someone feel special and appreciated, you lose out on all the added benefits of sending a gift voucher if it remains unused.
Why would someone not make use of their gift voucher?
Well we get too busy to find some time to set aside for a massage treatment. Or it just feels wrong to take some time out to get pampered with deadlines looming. Or the gift voucher recipient has never had a massage and does not understand what the fuss is all about.
So how do you make sure that the spa gift voucher gets used? (Apart from checking up on them constantly to find out if they have managed to ‘spend’ their spa gift voucher yet, which will just make them feel guilty and more stressed.)
This is supposed to be a special treat after all, so get two spa gift vouchers instead, clear both your schedules for a few hours and make an outing of it. Suddenly the occasion and the special reason for giving the gift are magnified by your presence.
Consider that if you book the day, buy the vouchers and accompany that special person to treat them at the spa, they are absolutely going to use the voucher. There are added benefits as you have the opportunity to spend quality time and strengthen the relationship. Especially if you include a light lunch after the spa treatment.
Not to mention that you are on hand to be thanked profusely for the pampering and to experience their gratitude immediately after the treatment or massage. As an added bonus, you also get to feel relaxed and refreshed as a result of your generosity.
