Daisies in a pastel green colander. (Thanks, Uncle Murray.) A $5 bill in a flowery card. (You shouldn’t have, Grandma.) A 42-inch flat-screen TV. (Oops. Wrong house.)
Wouldn’t it be great if special deliveries were a little more, well, special?
That’s precisely the idea behind the Hotel Victor’s Spa V’s Ultimate Hand Delivery. It’s the perfect gift for that deserving ($300-worth of deserving) person in your life: mom, dad, hairdresser (hey, he was there for you during the bang crisis of ’95 and the Kool-Aid catastrophe of ’98).
A Spa V masseuse or manicurist-pedicurist will knock on the door, hand over a gift certificate for an in-spa treatment, like massage (Knead Me, Stone Me, Stretch Me, Melt Me, or Mom Me) and a delicate Hand or Foot Fetish, then grace the lucky recipient with a chair massage or mini manicure — a preview of the pampering to come.
It’s the kind of service you never get from the UPS guy — unless you count your bachelorette party.
But that’s another story.
