O even a weekend filled with luxury and indulgence. Today's spas offer the best in skin and body care plus health and wellness. You'll return to work - and life - vibrant, glowing and rejuvenated.

6) Miss time with your family?
Take this opportunity to show everyone in your life how much you love them. Plan a family vacation to DisneyWorld, the Mall of America or a historical landmark the kids are learning about in school. Remember to bring pink and red cards and gifts for everyone.
