Finding gifts for the people we love is hard. Nearly everyone enjoys receiving gifts, but many of us enjoy the gift-giving process itself. When Americans were surveyed in a recent Pew Research Poll, 80% said that they felt “joyous” or “generous” when giving a gift. Still, gift-giving can also elicit a stress response. The same poll showed that nearly half of the Americans questioned felt financially stressed when it came time to purchase a gift, and about 35% of them felt stressed about the entire process.
Why is Buying Gifts So Stressful?
Why do we stress about giving gifts? When we examine the monetary stress responses, we find a common denominator across all stressors -- that is, that we are unsure whether the gift is suitable enough. Taking a stab at clothing size, personal tastes, and whether or not a person already has an item is stressful. However, giving something generic like a gift card to a box store is also stressful, potentially coming off as a cop-out. So, with one of our next big holidays right around the corner, Mother’s Day, what kind of gift can we buy that she’ll be sure to love?
There’s one thing everyone loves, and that’s getting pampered.
Not all of us grew up with a mother -- and that’s okay. However, we likely have at least one person we know in our life who is a great mother or grandmother, and they deserve a gift that shows them how much you care. This May 10th, get the special mom in your life something that they will definitely love. A gift card to Kenneth’s Spa says you care about their relaxation and well-being and also gives them many different options for a day at the spa on someone else’s dime.

Why Splurge on the Spa?
A gift card to the spa might seem like an extravagant gift, but there are multiple benefits to regularly going to the spa. Studies have shown that bodywork, including massage and facials, is key to relaxation and anxiety relief. Additionally, feeling good about the way you look boosts confidence, creating a better overall image of self-worth. A gift card to the spa not only means that you want the recipient to feel pampered and loved, but that you care about them getting special services that contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
