Perfect SpaSeekers’ Christmas spa gifts
Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends. It is also a wonderful opportunity to show your appreciation with a thoughtful gift – and what could be more thoughtful than the gift of relaxation? Christmas spa gifts can come in the form of a spa day or a spa voucher that gives the recipient more flexibility to choose their own date and location.
What our customers say:
“I arranged a pamper day at Macdonald Cardrona Hotel Golf and Spa for myself and my girlfriend as a Christmas present and we couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable time. From the minute we arrived, we were very well looked after, and the treatments we had were all fantastic! The only regret we have is not staying longer!” Duncan Bisset, from Aberdeen
“I gave my daughter the ‘Maternity Indulgence Day’ as a Christmas gift. She was absolutely delighted to receive it and arranged to visit Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa, Southport in January. She was seven months pregnant and feeling ‘frumpy’ but she returned from the spa feeling refreshed, revitalised and like a woman again.” Linda Knowles, Rainford
Christmas spa vouchers
If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift, spa vouchers are a great way to show your appreciation to a loved one. We offer a range of vouchers for specific spa experiences that can be redeemed throughout the year. These include:
Lovers’ Pamper Day: A full day of spa treatments for you and your partner, or a couple you know. At certain spas, selected treatments will be experienced in a dual treatment room for more intimate indulgence.
Men’s Pamper Day: Your partner, relative or friend will look and feel his very best after undergoing a day of treatments created specifically for the needs of male skin.
Mother and Daughter Pamper Day: Enjoy some quality time with your mum, or (adult) daughter in a day of shared spa indulgence (or make two ladies very happy with one gift this Christmas!).
Mini Pamper Day: Our shorter - but equally invigorating - budget-friendly pamper days make a wonderful stocking filler for all adults.
If you like the idea of a spa Christmas gift, but don’t want to commit to booking a package, we offer two alternatives:
- open vouchers to a certain monetary value that are redeemable against services offered by our 500+ spas
So, you see, there’s a perfect Christmas spa gift for everyone!
All our vouchers are available immediately after purchase, so if you’re stuck for a last-minute gift, we’ve got you covered!
