In a world where everyone seems to have everything they already need, finding a meaningful holiday gift for loved ones is more difficult than ever. Recently we’ve been advised to gift experiences rather than things because we’re all seemingly guilty of stockpiling more material goods than necessary. But with travel and other activities being restricted due to the Coronavirus pandemic, even experiences are tough to come by these days. So how about an aesthetic treatment instead? Although Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive aesthetic treatments going these days, how easy is it to gift a treatment? In this post, we’ll give some tips on how to give Botox as a holiday gift.
Know Your Giftee
Because most Botox treatments are meant to relax and reduce facial wrinkles, if you don’t know the recipient of your gift very well, giving the gift of Botox could give the wrong impression. Taken the wrong way, gifting a Botox treatment could imply that you think the recipient needs to address the wrinkles on their face. It’s best to give a Botox treatment as a gift only to someone who has already expressed interest in such a procedure. It’s even better if they’ve already had it done before and are planning a follow-up treatment. Botox isn’t necessarily for everyone, so don’t assume that a gifted Botox treatment would be graciously accepted by just anyone.
What About Age And Sex?
While Botox treatments were initially most broadly endorsed by women over the age of 40, that’s changed in recent years. Botox treatments are now being taken on by those as young as their 20s. And men are one of the fastest growing segments of Botox treatment patients. Limitations on the age and sex of Botox treatment recipients are no longer as rigid as they used to be.
The Flexibility Of Gift Cards
While you could always book and pay for an appointment for the recipient of your Botox treatment gift, giving them a gift card might offer more flexibility around their schedule. Having the treatment already paid for, they could book the treatment when they see fit. If it’s someone who only needs a top up, getting the timing right might be best done by them. Consider a gift card instead.
