Liz’s Christmas Gift Guide & Ideas 2020

While this year’s celebrations may be different for all of us, I am sure you’ll agree, this is still one of the most magical times of the year. For me, this year I’ve had the time to really plan and so far as presents are concerned, wrap them early (see my gift guide for great ideas at all price points), the Christmas cake and pudding have been made, the house is also being decorated early this year, our gifts neatly placed in our Temple Spa gift bags under the sparkling tree waiting to deliver or share on Christmas Day. I love ‘giving out’ at Christmas, even if it’s a small token present of a home-made jar of chutney, it’s the best way to say thank you for being in my life and to wish them a happy and healthy new year ahead.

Finding Christmas gift ideas and those last-minute stocking fillers can be tricky but fear not, because here at Temple Spa we have the Present Finder. Our nifty tool which guides you to the perfect present for the person in mind – it’s our own Christmas Elf!

Or keep on reading for my Christmas Gift Guide, ideas for my top favourite presents and the best secret santa gifts you can find….

TRUFFLE GLOW

The first Temple Spa Christmas gift idea is for the lover of all things luxury; if diamonds, champagne and luxe textures come to mind for this person then they’ll completely love this gift.​

The TRUFFLE GLOW Body Radiance Collection is a duo from our Truffle Family. Housed inside this beautiful Christmas gift set, you’ll find our TRUFFLETINI Illuminating Body Polish. The brilliant golden shimmer body polish will take your breath away, it is simply stunning! Alongside this we have BODY TRUFFLE, my personal favourite, a beautifully rich body crème that glides on, sinks in quickly and leaves the skin hydrated and gleaming to further enhance the gorgeous glow. We’ve included Rose Quartz, Champagne and Black Truffles in both products to leave your skin smooth and radiant.

DREAM STONES

Soaps are SO on trend right now and this collection called DREAM STONES is stunning. It contains 3 individual soap-stones engraved with the words PEACE, LOVE & JOY which is a beautiful message to your recipient, or of course you could give one each to three different people, great for stocking fillers or teachers treats.  Each bar is laced with our relaxing blend of botanicals and essential oils like lavender, patchouli and geranium for fragrant bubbles and a skin softening cleanse. Breathe in and take a moment to smell the Mediterranean!

SMOOTH TALKING LIP TRIO

If you’re looking for a secret santa gift or stocking fillers, SMOOTH TALKING LIP TRIO is your best option here. I used to do the make-up artists trick of using a dry toothbrush on my lips to get rid of dry skin, but now, I use SMOOTH TALK Lip Scrub, oh my, it’s become an essential. It’s a beautiful formula with shea butter, avocado, sunflower and grapeseed oils plus crystallised sugar and it gently buffs away chapped skin. Top up moisture levels with ALL TALK, our famous lip balm for soft and hydrated lips or finish with a hint of colour from PEP TALK. I’m particularly a fan of lip tints, great for if you’re heading out and you don’t want a full lip colour, but still something to make you feel made up. This is a great gift for all ages from young girls to older girls young at heart!

HOME IS WHERE THE SPA IS

Creating that at-home spa experience is more important than ever this year, so why not give the gift of one? I can think of so many of our key workers in need of this gift! HOME IS WHERE THE SPA IS is our collection of top-to-toe hair, body and skin treats to leave you feeling refreshed, restored and revitalised. We’ve collected our award-winning formulas and popped them in 50ml sized tubes, one of our best luxury travel gifts – don’t forget to come back shop your favourites full size! This is great for guys, girls, couples, individuals and can of course be split up for affordable stocking fillers, teachers thank-you’s and I use mine for neighbours doorstep treats.

DO NOT DISTURB

The Temple Spa mantra is “Your body is a living temple. Honour it, enjoy it and live it to the full” rings so true with our next gift. DO NOT DISTURB is our peace and relaxation collection, giving the receiver time to switch off and restore a peaceful mind. From soothing bath oils and best-selling night creams to aromatherapy sprays and relaxing face masks, this collection has everything for the person always on the go. It’s a Temple Spa favourite and it’s easy to see why!

I hope you’ve found some inspiration from my Christmas gift guide and ideas for presents and have saved a few to add to your list. If you do need more guidance, our Present Finder is on hand to match you to a brilliant gift.

Have a safe, healthy and happy time shopping!
