Okay…you are shopping for someone who has everything. Or, you’re shopping for people who don’t really want anything or can’t decide on what they want. Or, you’re shopping for someone who wants something that is way out of the range of your credit card limit. Whatever the case may be, there is still one gift out there that will make both male and female extremely happy this Christmas. And you will not have to stand in some crazy line with aggressive shoppers in order to get it.
This is the beauty of the gift card – and the gift cards that you can purchase from BAM Brands ‘Luxury’ companies are the ultimate ‘5-star’ gift.
Say you need that perfect facial. You need that day where it’s all about you. You can sit, relax, soothe and re-hydrate the skin, and basically head to the New Year’s Eve party looking like you dropped about ten years overnight. Answer: FaceLuXe. Or…you’re one of those people who’s so exhausted, so in pain from the tension and stress that life – not to mention Christmas shopping – has put on your shoulders, that you need some R&R that is affordable. That is where a gift card for MassageLuXe comes into play.
It’s not news that more and more people are purchasing gift cards as Christmas presents this year. With each new year, The National Retail Federation announces that gift card spending is ‘expected to reach an all-time high’. They will continue to, of course, because when it comes to gift cards, the person you love is happy, you’re happy (and un-bruised by overzealous shoppers), and your pocketbook remains intact.
According to figures more than 80% of us shoppers are planning to purchase at least one gift card – with many purchasing more than that. The figures also state that the average shopper is looking to spend an average of about $160.00 on gift cards, which is an increase of 4% from last year. Total spending on gift cards (cha-ching!) – close to $30 billion.
Yes, practical gifts are fine. Someone out there needs that coffee pot or new vacuum cleaner for the house. But the beauty of a gift card is that they can decide for themselves if the coffee pot is something that is a priority, or if the killer blouse is what they really want to walk out the doors with.
In essence, even when there are practical gifts to buy, people want to be pampered. They’ve worked all year. They’re tired; they need a break. And, most of all, they need a way to feel better as they head into 2014 and back to work. MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe are the team to do the job right; a dynamic duo that was created for sheer pampering. The gift cards that can be given to your friends and family are meant to take care of them and give them the relaxation and serenity they’ve worked all year to earn.
Not to mention, these gift cards are pure and utter value. The person heads through the doors of these establishments, enjoys the gift, and then heads back again and again in order to keep that pampering all year long because they deserve it. This helps the health and wellness of the people you love. (AND when you’re buying one for them, you can pick up one for yourself to congratulate yourself on making the right purchases this year).
Purchase that gift of a tension-free day. Gift certificates for luxury are exactly what the ‘LuXe’ cards provide to the ones you love. In a variety of amounts, from $75 to $200 dollars, each one comes in a gift card box that will have your friends and family extremely excited! After all…you just presented them with a ‘free pass’ to Eden.
