Tip-Top Toes pedicure

Give the gift of a home spa experience to your stressed-out BFF with this pedicure gift set. It includes Rescue mineral soak, SeaSPA hydrating salt scrub, flip-flop-shaped glycerin soap, FreshMint lotion, pedi-wand and terry slippers, all packaged in a stylish recyclable container.

Relaxation fountain

Perhaps not as delicious as a chocolate fondue fountain, this tabletop (or bath-side) candle-lit fountain can bring instant relaxation (without the calories) while your giftee is intentionally taking a break from the day or even as she is in the throes of phone calls, schedules and work deadlines. Focusing on the soothing trickling water is a welcome change from noisy neighbors or maddening silence.  (Macy's, $30)
