Best Local Picks for Self-Care & Experience Gifts

Polished Salon & Spa

Whether you’re prepping yourself or giving the gift of self-care, consider Polished Salon & Spa.

Polished Gift Cards make the perfect gift. Polished offers an array of services, from nails and massages to hair and skincare — even wellness offerings! Plus, it’s probably time to treat yourself, too.

For December, Polished features two new services:

  • Juniper Ale Massage: The massage you’ve been dreaming about all season long is here. Parched skin and tired muscles are greeted with coconut oil and Vitamin E. Feeling softer and lighter already? The Juniper Ale massage oil scented with delicate notes of orange, bergamot and fresh greens glides over muscles for intense hydration. 60-min – $84; 90-min – $109
  • All is Bright Tightening Facial: You better watch out, because flawless skin is coming to town! This facial begins with a hydrating Green Tea Milk Wash and a nourishing tonic, packed with antioxidants to treat skin to hydrating splendor! Next, a sugary sweet shea butter scrub cleanses, moisturizes and invigorates skin. A cactus-infused toning gel increases circulation and improves elasticity, giving you the perfect holiday glow. Then, a nourishing blend of agave nectar and natural oils is cocooned into skin with a steamed towel compress – splashing radiance onto complexion! Next, a clinical peptide facial serum works to banish discolorations, and a powerhouse eye serum sends crow’s feet and lines on the run. A firming peptide Three Milk Moisturizer soothes skin, and after a quick steamed towel compress infused with glistening and plumping Agave Nectar Oil- your complexion will twinkle. $99

Adventure Explorations

Experience gifts are some of the best to give. Give the gift of the great outdoors when you book with Adventure Explorations.

Adventure changes lives, and people’s chemistry. By bringing the extraordinary — a concierge experience, on-site home cooked meals with locally sourced ingredients, and gear that keeps safety first – you get to let go and breathe in the incredible beauty surrounding you. Nothing is better for mental health than outdoors and nature!

I loved my hiking experience with the local outfitter, and I’m eager to do more in the new year.

Adventure Explorations recently added Sporting Clays to its package offerings, and I’m eager to try it. Whether you’re a beginner or a practiced shooter, you can enjoy Adventure Exploration’s top of the line
equipment, excellent facilities, and knowledgeable and approachable instructors.

For the holiday season, consider adding-on Sporting Clays to a Holiday Daycation Package for your loved one!

Follow Adventure Explorations on Instagram and Facebook for more tastes of the great outdoors!
