Ah... the anticipation of Christmas! We’re officially counting down the final days of the season and were just as excited as the little ones. You may have recently woken up in a state of panic because you realized your holiday shopping is no where near done. We’ve all been there, between the holiday decorating, parties, and the endless list of errands, it’s nearly impossible to cross off every person on your list.

They can select from many classes, or you can plan a date night with your sweetheart or bff with one of their “evening for two” options. For all the foodies in your life, we recommend purchasing a gift certificate to one of many fabulous Old Towne Orange restaurants.

We know buying presents for men can be quite challenging, however a gift card from Plaza Barber is a guaranteed hit!

The great thing about giving a salon and spa gift card to friends or family is that they can use it to treat themselves to a variety of services and products on their own time table.
