Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything

Sadly this time of the year things tend to get out of hand.  Shopping, Christmas shows, school, gift  wrapping and so much more!  Finding quality just to spend with the family is near impossible.  As much as I like to watch movies I don't want to spend the entire Winter indoors in front of a TV just to have some alone time with my family.
We of course do game night and once in awhile we even go hiking, but that is it!  Winter quality time is pretty limited.

 Recently my hubby started to talk about getting a hot tub.  At first I was a bit iffy, but then he told me all the benefits of having a personal spa :)
If you know me the word spa is always a game changer!  Then he said it would be a great new way to spend time together as a family!  My boys love going to the pool during the summer and I realized he was right, this would be a great way to spend quality time together.
Highlife Collection NXT spa from Hot Spring, is the remedy – a relaxing retreat full of wellness.

Proving the point that making quality time for family is hard, a study conducted this year by Project: Time Off, a U.S. Travel Association initiative aimed at researching the benefits of taking time off, reveals how career stresses impact day-to-day quality time with family from the perspective of children.

Specific findings of the study include: 
Six in seven children report seeing their parents bring work stress home. 
75 percent of kids state their parents are unable to stop working while at home. 
Eight in ten children report experiencing some degree of stress in their daily lives.  
 -77 percent of kids claim they experience no stress when their parents take time off to.

Whether it’s soccer practice, 24/7 work schedules or technology’s cacophony, the lives of modern families are over-scheduled and over-stressed, making arranging family time difficult.

The warm water of a hot tub can provide a daily opportunity to relax naturally and help family members unwind and reconnect. For families that want to spend time together in superb style, 
the Highlife Collection NXT spa sets a new standard for hot tub design and performance. 

I can just see it now!  Saturday night being family spa night!  We would cut up some fruit, get some sweet drinks (with little umbrellas of course) and just relax together!No work, no kid's sports practices, no outside life to interrupt us :)

So some of the benefits of going with a Highlife Collection tub from NXT spa are the design.  Instead of a run of the mill tub you get an architecturally appealing design.  Including, but not limited to  molded corners with elegant exterior lighting, sculpted bartop and rich wood-grain look of the cabinetry.

The new Hot Spring line finally gives homeowners an attractive option that works with the look of their home instead of sticking out like a sore thumb!
And if you are worried about "care," The Highlife Collection is all about making your life easier, not harder!

I think it is time we make family life a top priority again!  Our wealth in life shouldn't be measured in money or worldly possessions.  It should be measured in the love,  -laughter and memories we share with our family.  No amount of money can buy 
those things, they are made in everyday moments.  Let Hot Spring help you spend more time with your family, in a fun new way.  With this great deal why not make it a gift for the family?  Every year my hubby and I get a big gift to enjoy as a family.  2 years ago it was a new TV, last year it was a trampoline and this year I have a feeling my hubby is going to get a Hot Tub!
