36 days to Christmas!

It sounds like a lot but you and I both know well enough that you’ll be stuck last-minute running around in shopping centres trying to find cool gifts that fit the recipient, and your budget. So, my gift to you is right here below: five salons and spas that offer amazing services so that you can win the best friend/lover/daughter/brother/whatever-you-are award of the year by offering your loved ones a #MeTime moment (all these salons do gift cards).


The Nival Package (holiday promotion) includes the thermal experience (outdoor whirlpools, thermal and Nordic baths, Finnish saunas, eucalyptus steam bath, thermal and Nordic waterfalls, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces) with food and wine pairing to make their day one of pampering. Price: $79 for a single entry or $158 for two (hopefully you).


How to make your loved one feel like the #boss you know they are? Getting their hair did while getting a mani! This place can combine any mani with a blow dry or a colour so that you can help maximize their precious time getting pampered.

Price for a blow dry: starting at $30

Price for a mani: starting at $35

ESPACE NOMAD (Plateau Mont-Royal)

Okay so gifting a trip to Marrakech is a tad exaggerated but what if I told you it’s almost the same? This salon really makes you travel all the meanwhile being in one of Montreal’s coolest neighbourhoods. If you want to win “best gift of 2018”, get a girl the Supergirl Package. It is a 2h30min package which includes a 60-minute Swedish or relaxing massage plus a manicure and pedicure using their line of Spa Ritual vegan products. The lucky recipient will get to enjoy a homemade smoothie on them while getting pampered!

Price for the Supergirl package: $146

Price for a Thai pedicure: $55

WONDERBLUSH (Quartier St-Henri)

This place is the one-stop-shop for beauty everything! And the place is so instagrammable it’s like d’une pierre, deux coups. Get your loved one a spray tan session so that they can forget winter has definitely come or a makeup session for a special night out (New Year’s eve anyone?).

Price for a spray tan session: $45

Price for a makeup session: $95

THE COMMON ROOM BARBERS (Union St. downtown)

Nowadays, getting groomed is as normal for guys as getting a mani is for girls so if your male loved ones are still fighting it, here’s your chance of forcing them to get their beard trimmed. They can finally realize that not only is it necessary but pleasant as well! Send them here where the price is right and the service is on point.

Price for a beard trim: $20

Price for a haircut and old fashioned hot towel shave: $50

Do yourself, and your loved ones, a favour and stop buying last-minute gifts.

Happy Me-Time,
