The Ultimate Spa Experience Package at the JW Marriott includes an overnight stay, spa treatments and $100 in jbucks for two.


Nothing says cozy like a good book from Books & Mortar. Check out Barbara Kingsolver’s latest novel, “Unsheltered,” read poems from “Devotions” by Mary Oliver, or be inspired by Lin Manuel Miranda’s book, “Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You.” Books & Mortar also recommends “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls” and “Here We Are” for kids.

Exfoliating Sugar Cubes

Treat your friends and family with Harper + Ari’s Exfoliating Sugar Cubes and their skin will thank you. One cube of sugar in the shower or bath is all that is needed for a day of pampering. A variety of scents are available to purchase at Rebel Reclaimed.

Afternoon Tea

Everyone loves a tea party. Set a date to enjoy a soothing cup of tea while you indulge in a wide selection of delicious pastries at Le Bon Macaron’s Afternoon Tea. Your loved ones will adore this comforting day filled with tea and treats. Be sure to make your reservations at least a week in advance.
