Dorit Baxter, founder and owner of New York Day Spa located in midtown Manhattan, is currently conducting an unprecedented outreach to recipients of the spa's gift certificates.

"A significant portion of recipients put their gift certificate aside, planning to use it for a special occasion but don't get around to it," Baxter observes, explaining that this under use of gift certificates is a circumstance welcomed by service providers and retailers.

"There is a widespread attitude throughout the mercantile world that every gift certificate which goes unused represents pure profit," Baxter declares, adding that in every industry selling gift certificates it is considered a big plus that in many instances they will not have to provide the gifted service or merchandise.

Baxter does not see it this way. "Most of the people purchasing our gift certificates are our clients who by doing so are demonstrating their regard for our spa. I am happy to honor their intention, so we have initiated a process of contacting gift certificate recipients to remind them that a friend, relative, or colleague cared enough to give them a present of pampering."

Baxter maintains that this outreach is both an ethical approach to gift certificates and that it also makes good business sense because "today's gift certificate recipient can become tomorrow's client for both our services and products.

"This is about customer satisfaction and ensuring that the gift is transferred to a wonderful experience for the recipient," Baxter continues, which is why New York Day Spa create procedures that remind the recipients to use their gift certificates.
