Give the Gift of Creature Comforting


Ross, Lilla, The Florida Times Union


If you're having trouble coming up with ideas for people on

your shopping list, consider some of these items to restore body

and mind:

How about a full-body massage from a chair. The Get-a-Way Chair,

$2,795, available at Sharper Image and Brookstone, will knead,

tap and roll you into oblivion. The computerized controls also

can isolate one specific area such as the lower back. A

two-speed oscillator massages the calves.

If the price is a little too stressful for you, consider a

massage from a human. Full-body massages, from gentle to

screamers, start at around $50. Some massage therapists will cut

you a deal for a series.

Looking for a gift that carries a message? Try The "Until

There's a Cure" AIDS Bracelet. The 1/4-inch cuff bracelet

features the familiar small raised AIDS ribbon.

The bracelet comes in three styles: silver plate ($20),

sterling ($70) or 18-karat gold ($500) and in four sizes from

small to extra large. It's available by calling 1-800-888-6845

or at the Body Shops.

Or, how about a trip to a spa? The spa at the Ponte Vedra Inn

and Club offers a whole range of services from herbal wraps

($35), enzymatic mud packs ($40), botanical essence cocoons

($55), a back facial for men ($50), among many other things.

They offer packages, such as The Day of Pampering ($215), which

includes a Jacuzzi soak, body polish, hydro-shower treatment,

Swedish massage, deep cleansing facial, manicure, shampoo and

style, makeup application and lunch.

Or, The Spa Man ($215) which includes a facial, massage, body

loofah polish, shampoo and style, manicure, pedicure and lunch.

For information, call (904) 273-7700.

Something simpler? Try the Body Shop's baskets of goodies with

such treats as potpourri, aromatic candles, green apple shower

gels, cocoa butter lotion, pink grapefruit soaps. …
