Christmas shopping is always a little stressful, but this year there is a lot more to think about due to the difficult year it has been for many after COVID-19. A particularly hard year for local and smaller businesses, there is a certain amount of responsibility we all feel to shop more consciously this year, as well as finding gifts our loved ones will truly appreciate.
Luckily for us, we represent a number of fantastic brands that sit in the beauty and wellness category, meaning we have some great gift ideas that will help destress your nearest and dearest this Christmas.
Spa Gift Vouchers
One of the easiest gifts you can buy are gift vouchers. A number of our award winning Spa clients sell these whether they are monetary value, for particular treatments or for Spa days or Spa breaks. Buying a gift voucher for a Spa experience is a great way to help establishments across the UK, but it also gives those closest to you an experience to truly look forward too, rather than buying them something they may not want or need. A spa gift voucher can start for as little as £25 and is the ideal gift for Mums, partners, adult children, best friends and even yourself!
