Shopping for your bestie who loves nothing more than turning her bathroom into her very own spa? Or perhaps you need some gift ideas for a loved one who's in need of a bit of R & R?
Everyone can use some pampering from time to time. That's why we've picked out our 5 favourite spa gifts that will help anyone relax and enjoy some well-deserved me-time.
Nothing says relaxation more than a long, warm bath at the end of the day. And what better way to enjoy it, than by adding some aromatic mineral bath salts?
Mineral bath salts have long been known for their therapeutic qualities: they don’t just cleanse and purify the skin, but also restore hydration (meaning your skin won’t be wrinkly when you get out of the bath). And with their calming aromatic properties, designed to promote relaxation, you’re practically guaranteed a dreamy bedtime soak.
For skin care lovers, nothing beats a good face mask. There are plenty of options out there, so choosing one can be tricky. But you can’t go wrong with an organic face mask. These face masks contain only natural ingredients, making them suitable for every skin type, even the most sensitive skin.
A rich organic face mask, such as a detox mask or luxurious cleanser are perfect for an at-home facial and make great gifts for the skin care enthusiasts in your life. If you’re looking for a more practical skin care gift, then sheet masks are the way to go. They’re easy to put on and take off without risking a mess and will leave your skin feeling refreshed and glowing.
Everything starts with a good night’s sleep. Getting a peaceful 8 hours in is so essential, but unfortunately it doesn’t always come easy. And light is one of the main things that will prevent you from getting a good night’s rest: whether it stops you from going to sleep at night or wakes you up way too early during those summer mornings. That’s why for many, a sleep mask is essential to get a good night’s rest. They’ll block all the light and help you fall asleep much faster. The perfect gift for a friend to help them get well rested and ready to face the day.
The peshtemal is the ultimate treat to create an at home spa experience. A traditional Turkish towel that is mainly used in Hamam’s, it's lightweight, quick drying and absorbent. And unlike most towels, these hand-woven Turkish towels will only get softer the more they’re used.
These lightweight all-rounders are also endlessly versatile: they can both be used indoors or outdoors as beach or bath towels, and even work as scarves, throws or wraps.
As any candle lover knows, a wonderful scented candle has the power to turn a bad day right around. And while there are many fragrances out there, you can’t go wrong with a lavender scented candle or a calming aromatherapy candle.
Pair these with some handmade soap, a face mask and peshtemal and you’ve got the perfect gift to create the ultimate relaxing night in.
