For the Hard-to-Please
Spa gift certificates seem easy enough, but picking the right spot for your recipient can sometimes prove a challenge (pretty websites don't always mean great services). But Aire Ancient Baths
, which opened last year downtown, is a totally different experience from what you'd find anywhere else in New York. Massages are complemented by long soaks in cavernous Roman thermal baths — some of which are filled with red wine and cava. No one will complain after that.
Aire Ancient Baths, 88 Franklin St. (Church St.), Tribeca. $75-490 here.
