Green Christmas Gift Idea
It’s that time of year again! Yes, the time of year when we start getting stressed, a bit panicky and definitely a little tad manic! Christmas has a lot to answer for, doesn’t it! There are a few people that seem to take it all in their stride, with lists written straight after the end of the last festive period and gifts bought and wrapped before September, but believe me; they are few and far between!
Never fear, because there is an easy way to become a Stepford Wife this Christmas and, to top it all, you can do it in a green, eco-friendly manner! Buying your Christmas presents online can save you money, time and hassle, whilst reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
One of the best green gift ideas that we have come across here at TGF and one that would be perfect for so many different people are Christmas spa vouchers. There are lots of spas throughout the UK offering treatments and therapies based on organic and natural principles. Interestingly, the spa and wellness industry has been a leader in the green movement for quite some time, offering treatments that are specifically eco-friendly.
The other good reason for giving Christmas spa vouchers as a gift is that they will probably be the one present that will be the most welcomed. Think about it. The festive season involves excesses of all types; drinks parties, office celebrations, Christmas dinners (maybe more than one!), and Boxing Day leftovers. After all that indulgence, a bit of pampering isn’t such a bad thing! Think of it as recycling the body, just as you recycle the wrapping paper. Don’t feel guilty about it because at the same time that you are being good to yourself, you are being good to the environment.
There are plenty of eco-friendly spas that are environmentally responsible and care for the planet as well as their guests, promoting sustainable living. They provide natural and organic products for use in the treatment rooms, find creative ways to reduce power usage, utilise renewable energy where possible and make sure they have only cotton or bamboo towels in changing rooms.
Spa vouchers are ideal for every member of the family, including the men. In fact giving vouchers to everybody on Christmas Day could be a really nice way to arrange a get-together in the New Year. There are also special pamper day vouchers tailored to specific groups, such as Mother and Daughter or Lovers. If you are not seeing the gift recipient over the Christmas period, then the vouchers can be sent directly to them gift wrapped and with a personalised message.
Of course, a spa day would be the ideal pre-Christmas stress buster for you, relaxing not only your body but your mind and spirit as well. A great way to try out some of the treatments on offer and to help you remember what Christmas is all about - look after yourself as well as looking after others, the green way!
