Catering to divas age 17 and under, Pretty N Posh lets young ladies upkeep their limbs with a one-hour ice-cream-sundae mani-pedi, which employs hypoallergenic ME!

Valentine's Day is typically a stressful time of booked restaurants, singing telegrams, and raccoon uprisings. Today’s Groupon will help you and your date stay loose and relaxed through it all: for $70, you get two one-hour Swedish massages and two half-hour candlelit Jacuzzi soaks at Body Options Massage and Day Spa (a $170 value). Located in Hazelwood's Village Square Shopping Center in North St. Louis County, Body Options' quiet, comfortable atmosphere and professional staff make it worth the short drive. While one person can use both sessions on themselves, you can also split this Groupon into one session for two people—making it an ideal couples gift for Valentine's Day, as well as an above-average Arbor Day gift. Call at least a day ahead to schedule your appointment.
