Pamper your Pop this Father’s Day

Fathers’ Day. That special time of year when love comes in the form of painted macaroni collages, necktie-shaped ice cream cakes, and coupon books filled with vouchers for “One Free Hug” or “A Day Off From Killing Bugs That Come In the House.”

We have a better idea.

This Fathers’ Day, why not take care of dad in a totally different way? As in, bring a whole new meaning to the phrase “give the guy a break”? We’re talking about treating dad to a spa day. Because anyone can book a round of golf for the old man. It’s time to pamper our pops and do something great for their minds, bodies, and souls…the way they’ve always done for us.

greenhouseThe good news is that spas around the country are offering unbeatable Fathers’ Day specials to make a Day-With-Dad as relaxing (and manly!) as possible. Greenhouse Holistic in Brooklyn, New York, renowned for its yoga programs and Shiatsu techniques, is taking special time out of its regular routines to take care of dads, by offering tremendous deals on its signature massages, including Swedish, sports, deep tissue, and hot stone relaxation sessions.

mrcHead west a few thousand miles to Mr. C Spa & Beauty in Beverly Hills to, as they say “spoil dad with a full day of relaxation.” Their customized Fathers’ Day package (available for most of the month of June) includes a 30 minute eucalyptus steam session, a specially-designed men’s back, face, and scalp treatment (crafted to target tired muscles), a back massage, and more, all culminating in a shaken-for-dad gin cocktail – the perfect way to eke out some good old fashioned fatherly advice!


ritzAnd speaking of cocktails…The Ritz-Carlton South Beach in the heart of Miami knows that there’s only one way to get a less-than-enthusiastic spa-going dad to relax and enjoy the pampering: beer. Their “Mucho Macho MANicure & BEERicure” Fathers’ Day special includes a full mani-pedi and a choice of craft brews to sample. Spa technicians will even use beer-based exfoliants to hydrate Dad’s skin during the treatment. (And as always, their Gentleman’s Deep Cleansing Facial, part of their regular men’s menu at the spa, will be available.)


Of course, even cowboys need a little R&R. Which is why we love what Dallas’ Hiatus Spa + Retreat has on their agenda to celebrate Dad. They’re offering three unique packages for fathers at all levels of spa-ed-ness. For dads who need a little Relaxation 101, their “Frosty Mug Men’s Retreat” is a great way to ease Pop into the world of spa treatments. The “invigorating full body scrub with organic hops, barley and malt” ends with a chilled stone massage and a pint of a local Texas IPA. For dads who know their way around a spa, their “Best Dad Ever!” package, featuring an 80 minute stress-fix massage, a reflexology session, and a “Well-Groomed Men’s Facial,” is dad-finitely the way to go. And for those dads who just have to get back to the barbecue before the afternoon’s up, Hiatus’ “Dad’s Essentials” lets Dad choose two signature spa services to revitalize and recharge just the way he needs.

While Spa-thers’ Day, ahem, we mean Fathers’ Day, can be all about the bells and whistles, don’t forget that sometimes all Dad wants is a quiet afternoon at home. ThermaSol makes it so easy to turn your home bath into a spa paradise. A customized steam shower at your fingertips means that a spa day for Dad might be as close as a walk down the hall. Load up Dad’s iPod with his favorite tunes (which he’ll play through ThermaSol’s Serenity Light & Sound System), deck out the bathroom with manly scents (think candles scented with leather, tobacco, or mesquite), and fire up the grill for some hearty post-pampering eats. Thanks for everything, Dad. We’ll kill the bugs today.
