I used to be one of those people who thought giving a coupon as a gift was really tacky. (Now granted if you are perusing the paper and come across a 50 cents off butter discount coupon and you cut it out and put it in a card for your mother, that is tacky.) Until I became good friends with Lisa.(That's paraffin wax on her hand.)
Last year for my birthday Lisa brought me breakfast in bed and gave me a punch card for 30 minutes of massage time from her. Now she is not a professional, just a wonderful friend giving the gift of herself to me. I am very grateful for my dear friend who has such a wonderful servants heart.
So I thought what better gift to give Lisa for her birthday than a spa night.
We drank coffee and ate fruit and chocolate.
I created a foot mask from ingredients in my kitchen.
Foot Mask Recipe
1/2 an avocado
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 handful of oatmeal
Mix together in the blender. Glob onto feet. Let sit for 20 minutes then rinse with warm water.
I rubbed her feet and painted her toenails.
She dipped her hands in paraffin wax.
We finished off with a relaxing back rub.
So what have I learned? Service gifts are wonderful. This spa night was relaxing and fun. It will not clutter up Lisa's living room and it was given with love. Not tacky at all.
