Lying quietly face-down on a table is a crucial step toward getting a massage or ruining a dinner party. Back up with this Groupon.
$189 for a Two-Hour Spa Getaway for Two ($400 Value)
At the start of the spa getaway, participants don their own slippers and slip into a robe that's provided by the spa. Then, they snack on Mediterranean hors d'oeuvres (hummus, tapenade, bruschetta, and crostini) and soak their feet in a sea-salt bath for 15 minutes. Following a 15-minute facial, which purifies and buffs skin, participants sprawl out on a cushioned table for a 45-minute Swedish massage with aromatherapy. Each participant leaves with a gift bag that includes a backscratcher, stress ball, nail file, and 2013 calendar.
Laser My Tat
A rose captioned with an ex-girlfriend's name. A barbed wire band from a teenage Pamela Anderson phase. Garfield throwing rocks at the logo of a rival sports team. While decision-making skills improve with age, tattoos often remain tangible proof of youthful indiscretion. The technicians at Laser My Tat understand that sometimes, ink that seemed like a can't-miss idea looks less rosy with the benefit of hindsight. After an initial consultation, techs draw up a treatment plan and set about diligently erasing tattoos with the help of their Q-switched Nd:YAG laser system. Over the course of a few sessions, the laser's energy breaks down once-permanent ink into small particles that are then removed by the body's natural defenses, eventually leaving skin free from any regrettable marks.
