Best Gift Cards to Relieve Stress During the Holidays

Holiday Gift Card

Holidays are a great time to reconnect with your family and friends. They give you ample opportunities to talk about your life, eat, and (theoretically) to relax before the new year.

But as much as we want the holidays to work out like stress-free vacation time, they usually don’t. In the Columbus, Ohio region, we get pounded with snow -- which is stress in itself. It makes traveling hazardous and nearly impossible to plan for. Then, we have to deal with the stress of telling our families about our lives. Almost everyone encounters a critical comment at a family holiday get together, which can take a toll on our sanity. Finally, your wallet can take a beating in the spirit of giving. The average family household spends $700 on gifts during the holiday season -- more if you have a large family.

All of this is on top of other natural stressors you must deal with regularly -- chores, work, and financial obligations. The holidays are meant to be a cheerful time of year, but sometimes they do just the opposite. Luckily, Kenneth’s Hair Salons & Day Spas are here to help you de-stress after the holidays. If you know someone who might benefit from a day at the spa, a haircut, or some other stress-relieving activity, one of our gift cards is a great way to calm down.

You might even want to consider treating yourself!

Get a Haircut & Style

When you’ve got a stressed-out friend or family member who doesn’t like their feet touched, opt for a classic haircut gift card. Getting a haircut at Kenneth’s salon is a relaxing, personal experience for the women in your life. Our dedicated and hardworking stylists listen to your wants and needs -- whether that’s just a touch-up or a whole new style. Getting a wash and style is like getting a head massage. You leave the salon feeling relaxed and good as new after a great cut.

Haircuts are available at all our central Ohio locations.

Get a Waxing Service

Sometimes we get so caught up in working toward our holiday parties and events that we forget to take care of ourselves. Have you ever looked in the mirror and found yourself face to face with noticeable facial hair that seemed to have just sprouted up overnight? Or, perhaps you’ve caught a glimpse of an encroaching unibrow only to say to yourself, “but I JUST tweezed!”

We get it. Sometimes we let stress get the best of us, and it impacts the way we look. But a waxing can stave off unsightly body hair for a little bit longer than usual, and sometimes it’s just what we need to get back into the groove. Kenneth’s waxing salon locations in Arlington-Hilliard, Dublin, Grove City, Kingsdale, New Albany, Pickerington, Polaris Parkway, Westerville, and Worthington all have full-service wax options for anything you might need. Consider getting a wax gift card to one of those locations for one of your stressed-out friends.

Get a Mani-Pedi

Nothing says luxury quite like getting someone else to polish and pamper your fingers and toes. Though it can be uncomfortable at first, these are also a great way to get someone into the full spa experience. Manicure and pedicure specific gift cards are available online and can be used at our Arlington-Hilliard, Kingsdale, New Albany, Pickerington, Polaris and Worthington locations. If you want to pamper yourself year round, a membership to our women only Club Kenneth Spas will pamper you each month with a massage, facial or manicure and express pedicure for only $65 per month! It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Get a Facial

For an authentic luxury spa experience, try out a gift card to one of our spa locations. With a state-of-the-art facilities, our spas offer hairstyling as well as a full spa. Popular gift cards at this location include our facial gift card.

We offer a variety of facials that are suited for all budgets. Check out all of our facial services, our facial enhancements, dermaplaning treatment, hydrafacial treatment and dermaplaning treatments at a Kenneth’s Spa location near you.

A simple facial is a great way to knock out the stress of the holiday season. Our facials incorporate light massage, aromatherapy, and other relaxing techniques that not only help you feel calmer but also help you look your best.

Get a Massage

Massages are scientifically proven to reduce stress in a significant way. Doctors recommend them for patients who experience acute anxiety and depression. Chiropractors recommend them for people with chronic pain issues. Even if you don’t have these issues, there’s no reason you can’t benefit from the relaxing properties of a massage with a massage-specific gift card.

Massages are available at our Arlington-Hillard, New Albany, and Polaris Parkway locations. We even have extras you can add on to your massage experience -- like lunch -- for a totally relaxing day.

Get a Peel

Has your skin been looking dull? If so, you’re not alone. As you age, the collagen and the elastin in your face lessens, which makes it harder and harder for your skin to repair itself. Combine this with the damaging impacts of stress (like the kind you experience during the holidays) and environmental factors (like the cold, icy weather), and you have a perfect recipe for dull skin.

A peel is perfect for stimulating cell growth in your face and getting that youthful glow back in your skin. Better yet, we offer gift cards specifically for peels! Get a dermaplane or a microdermabrasion depending on your wants and needs. We ensure that these procedures are as painless as possible, and they always leave you looking your best!

Peels are available at all our spa locations, including Arlington-Hillard, New Albany, and Polaris Parkway. Schedule a girl’s day and feel young and revived after a long December.
