Mother’s Day has come and gone and SpaFinder Gift Certificates were front and center as TV, print, and online outlets covered everything from last-minute Mother’s Day gifts to unique gift ideas for mom. With so much media attention, we just had to share since your spa and wellness centers are where moms everywhere will be cashing in on some much-deserved relaxation and rejuvenation time.
In fact, according to an online survey of 2,215 adults last month conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of EBates, a substantial 48 percent of moms said they specifically wanted “a peaceful spa day, devoted to their own relaxation and pampering.”
Other interesting stats from the survey reported about 72 percent of men thought moms wanted flowers, but only 38 percent of moms actually wanted bouquets. Another 36 percent longed for jewelry. We think it’d be a win-win next year if gifts include both a SpaFinder Gift Certificate and some flowers or jewelry…a possible marketing tactic that spas could possibly benefit from.
Check out the following news pieces SpaFinder appeared in for Mother’s Day 2012. We’re sure all of this great press will translate into a boost in business for many of you.
