This Is How We Do Valentine’s Day.

February 6, 2015

Single, taken, in the mood for love, or just feel like a bit of indulgence? Good. Let Valentine’s Day be your excuse. We like to think we show the ones we love how much we appreciate them year-round, but there’s nothing wrong with a little extra TLC come February 14. If you’re with us on that point, then stick around — we’re making it easy to get it right next week.


1. Give an Experiential Gift 

It’s not just a gift certificate to milk + honey, oh no. It’s your (or someone special’s) ticket to a luxurious massage, facial, mani-pedi, blowout, etc. Basically, this is a guarantee “in writing” that an awesome treatment is just an appointment away.


2. Pucker Up

“O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.” 

— Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

This organic, plant-based lip butter is packed with moisturizing virgin coconut oil and shea fruit butter, and fragrant with a warm, spicy mix of cardamom and vanilla. In short, those lips don’t stand a chance. In the best way possible.


3. Set the Mood

Nothing like a little ambiance — preferably one that smells of sandalwood, vetiver, and cardamom — to set the mood. Love is in the air, with a little help from our delicious milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 46 of course.


4. Make plans

This year, Valentine’s Day lands on a Saturday. Translation? Reservations are a must. Start with a couples massage at our 2nd Street District or Hill Country Galleria location (book now!), then head to one of our favorite new restaurants in East Austin, Gardner. If Valentine’s Day is actually more of a “Gal-entine’s” celebration, that’s still a valid reason to treat yourself. Head to Gardner with friends, or go for pizza at Bufalina and top it off with delicious cocktails at Weather Up.


5. Have fun

No reason to fret over this day. If nothing else, it’s a Saturday. Enjoy it!

Gift Certificates – Instant versus Mailed

October 12, 2010

We currently have two ways of purchasing our ever-popular gift certificates online. (Of course you can always purchase a gift certificate by calling the spa or going into one of our locations.)

We have the widest selection of choices at These gift certificates can either be mailed to you, your recipient, or held for you at one of our locations. These gift certificates use the same beautiful packaging that our in-store gift certificates offer. Since these gift certificates are mailed or overnighted, there is a delay between purchase and delivery.

We also sell instant gift certificates through a different web storefront. These gift certificates can either be printed by you instantly or emailed to the recipient immediately. You’ll provide your own packaging. We still think that they look good and the ultimate service that your recipient will receive is unsurpassed.
