Have you left it too late, and now you’re struggling to find Christmas gifts for your loved ones? Last minute Christmas shopping can often prove fruitless, stressful, or end up being incredibly expensive. Panic sets in and all logic is forgotten, as we scramble to find the ‘perfect’ gift for a loved one in time for Christmas. If you’re currently panicking about leaving shopping for a Christmas gift to the last minute, don’t worry! We’ve got some great suggestions for you – and you don’t even have to leave the house to purchase them.
The best place to search for a last minute Christmas gift is online. You can instantly purchase a gift experience and receive the voucher immediately, so that you can print it out and have something tangible to give on Christmas Day. There are so many digital gift ideas for you to choose from, so we’ve selected some of the best for you.
As soon as the Christmas period is over, everyone is on a mission to replenish their body and mind by embarking on a major health and fitness journey. Help a loved one start off the New Year as they mean to go on, by gifting them a health and fitness experience. There are loads of fitness experiences that you can instantly purchase online – a personal training session, yoga retreat, strength and conditioning session, a set of circuit training classes, a gym membership or a body transformation program are just a few suggestions.
Getting the opportunity to have a professional hair stylist restyle your hair with a haircut or hair colour is such an uplifting experience. It’s a luxury not everyone can always afford, and it really can be the ultimate pick-me-up. Why not gift a loved one a hair makeover this Christmas? If you don’t think a haircut or colour would be of too much interest to a male loved one in your life, they can use the voucher for a luxury hot towel shave instead.
Christmas over-indulgence (and stress) can wreak havoc on our skin. That’s why a facial makes for such a clever last minute gift idea! A facial, facial peel or laser treatment helps to restore a refreshed, youthful appearance, and offers the recipient the opportunity to get away for a little while for some much-deserved pampering. There are excellent facial options available for both men and women, or you can choose a tailored facial if you think you know what the person would like.
Want to really indulge a loved one? A hot stone massage can be the perfect way to relax, rejuvenate and soothe aching muscles. This is a gift experience that simply no one would refuse. The opportunity to have your body expertly massaged and pampered after a long, hard week is just heavenly. A hot stone massage warms the body and loosens the muscles, and is sure to heighten the mood of the lucky recipient of your massage gift experience. A massage is a luxury not many people treat themselves to often, so giving someone deserving a hot stone massage experience is a great last minute gift idea.
Know someone who’d love a makeup application or lesson from a professional artist? The recipient gets an opportunity to pick up some expert industry tips, and experience their own beauty makeover. The next time they have an event to go to or fancy a pick-me-up, they can use their gift experience voucher to book in and employ the skills of a pro to work some makeup magic. This experience could also be helpful for younger women or teenagers who are just starting out with wearing makeup, to give them some handy tips for application and for working out what colours suit them. From the beauty product fanatic to the woman who is usually fresh-faced, this is a great confidence-boosting gift.
If you are shopping last minute for a Christmas gift and are truly determined to blow a loved one away with your choice of gift, why not present them with the ultimate spa experience? In gifting a day spa pampering experience, you’re giving a loved one a whole day of total relaxation, the chance to indulge in some well-deserved TLC and the opportunity to replenish themselves, so that they can start the new year fresh and revived. A day spa experience is a great gift idea to enable friends, family or couples to spend some quality time together. Getting waited on hand and foot, enjoying relaxing treatment after relaxing treatment – it’s the perfect gift experience for the important people in your life.
We bet your last minute quest to find the perfect Christmas gift just got a whole lot easier. You don’t have to battle the crowds in panic trying to purchase a Christmas gift – some amazing digital gift experience ideas are readily available for you to purchase online with just a few clicks of your mouse.
