One is the Girlfriends' Retreat Getaway to Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Mass., April 19-22. Featured are activities such as yoga and hiking, wellness lectures, spa treatments and gourmet meals. Guests will receive KN pajamas, lounge socks and a copy of Karen Neuburger's book, The Secret Language of Girlfriends. The cost is $1,670 per person for a deluxe room, which includes a $340 per person credit toward spa, sports and wellness services.
