After the Christmas stress build-up, what could be more delightful than giving and receiving the gift of spa? While a spa day makes the perfect present for someone special, spa gifts for the home would bring tidings of comfort and joy to all – especially The Spa Spies (hint hint). We’ve found some spa-inspired favourites to help you tick a few people off your nice list.

For Spa-istas – The Ultimate ESPA Collection  £160

The words ESPA and Ultimate will make any spa lover’s heart skip a beat. The indulgent set is packed full of the ESPA hero products, including the Pro Skin trio and the famous Pink Hair and Scalp Mud. What more could a girl need?

For Spa Jeunes – Nuxe’s Beauty Countdown £49 for 10 products

Unveil 10 skincare treats designed to keep your skin glowing this winter. This magical beauty present contains the cult Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® - a shimmering dry oil which is perfect for parties!

For Homey Spa-istas - Temple Spa’s Home Fragrance Collection £65

Bring the scent of a spa home with you. This trio contains the All is Calm reed diffuser, All is Bright candle and the Heart and Soul fragrance. Take a deep breath, inhale, exhale and allow the gorgeous Christmassy scent to work its magic.

For Young Parents or Insomniacs - NEOM’s All I Want For Christmas Is Three Nights of Peace £15

Three nights of peace? Wouldn’t that be fabulous! It may not be able to guarantee three nights of me-time, but head to the bathroom and drift away for half an hour of bliss. This trio of bath oils is part of the Neom Scent to Destress range to help you unwind before the big day.

For the Catherine Deneuves - Thalgo’s Collagen Coffret £62 

Say hello to beautiful, plump and smooth skin this party season. We all have that friend that looks flawless and radiant 24/7. You may not know how she does it, but our guess is this trio of collagen boosting products!

For the Stressed Christmas Fairy – Spiezia’s Mindful Moments £18

Do you have a family member who pushes your stress levels up? Take a deep breath and reach for the aromatherapy oils. Spiezia’s trio of oils promise to ‘focus and clarity’, ‘uplift and energise’ or ‘connect and nurture’.

For Keen Beauty Lovers – Oskia’s Christmas Cracker £18

The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel has gained a bit of a cult following. So why not pop it in their stocking inside a Christmas cracker? Imagine the joy on their face when this cleansing favourite lands on their lap instead of a puzzle that’s impossible after a glass or two of wine…

For the mums to be – Natural Spa Factory Mini Pregnancy Gift Set £48

Treat the mum-to-be in your life with a little bit of luxury just for them. The Natural Spa Factory gift set contains a scrub, moisturiser, oil and a body brush to treat, hydrate and invigorate tired muscles. Help her take some me-time before her little one arrives.

For Wine Lovers – Caudalie Winter Duo The Des Vignes £8

If your friend’s house is starting to look a little like a wine cellar, you may have an oenophile on your hands. Instead of going for the classic winebox, try this gift set from Caudalie, who use grapes and grape extracts in their skincare. This hand cream and lip balm duo is the perfect treat for those cold winter months that lie ahead.

For wellness bunnies – Aromatherapy Associates Instant Wellbeing £18

Whether you have a mindfulness guru or a yoga-ista in mind, this Aromatherapy Associates instant wellbeing duo will help revive and relax. The gift set is inspired by an English winter garden – perfect for an English rose.

For ladies who love to travel – ila Little Face Treats £60

Ila’s little face treats are perfect for people who always on the go. Almost like a grab bag, if that grab bag included rose damascene otto and argan oils. It’ll keep you skin super hydrate whether you’re travelling by train, plane or automobile.

Nail lovers – Jessica’s Into The Wild Mysterious Echoes Gift Set £19.95

This gift set is for ladies who love to lacquer! Deep and moody are rather en vogue at the moment and the Jessica into the wild collection has two deep and dark polishes and a sparkling top coat.
