The Ultimate At Home Spa Day Gift Guide
It’s no secret that 2020 Was a 'Schitt' Show. The past year has been anything but easy for the large majority of people, and the many challenges that have come with the pandemic have made everyone worthy of a spa day.
Yes, a spa day. The type of self-care tradition that friends used to indulge in before the coronavirus swept our nation and shuttered nearly every health and wellness club for months. At the moment, the typical spa day we all know and love can no longer be freely enjoyed outside of the house.
Thankfully, the at-home spa day can still be celebrated within your own four walls. All you and a loved one need are the proper tools, which can all be found in the suggestions made below. Not only do they make perfect presents for the frontline workers in your life, they also make kind gifts to yourself this holiday.
Above everything, we hope you’re taking care of you right now. So bathe, mask, nap, and massage your heart out with our top picks for the ultimate at-home spa day. Merry Christmas!
ESW Raw Juice Mask Set
The perfect choice for: A complexion that needs a superfood boost
There’s a stereotype for winter skin: dull, dehydrated, flaky, irritated… you’ve heard it all before. Luckily, ESW Beauty's Raw Juice Cleanse Mask Set provides solutions for the season's annoyances. A combination of soothing, anti-aging, cleansing, moisturizing and revitalizing face masks provide you with all the nutrients you need to reverse the weather’s effects and glow on.
Kitsch Satin Pillowcases
The perfect choice for: A girlfriend who’s been awaiting a good rest and an even better hair day
If you’re looking to preserve and enhance the effects of your face masks, cuddling up with a Kitsch satin pillowcase at night is key. The silky texture softens and protects your hair so that you can wake up frizz-free. Plus, it's extra gentle on your skin for a true beauty sleep.
Bathorium Bath Soaks (Pictured at top)
The perfect choice for: An end-of-week recovery session
What would a spa day be without a long soak in a hot bath? Besides the warmth of the water being necessary for taking the chill out of your bones and the steam being crucial for cleansing your pores, an aromatic and hydrating bath blend completes the whole experience. Bathorium’s expansive range of moisturizing and delectably-scented bath soaks nail the luxurious treatments you look forward to, but at-home. Choose from woodsy sage, velvety coconut and vanilla, and reinvigorating eucalyptus scents, among others.
Faerhaven Body Balms
The perfect choice for: Skin in need of advanced repair
Handmade in small batches in Harrow, Ont., Faerhaven's lush Body Balms protect longer than regular lotions as a result of the moisture barrier they form on the skin without clogging pores. Scented with calming lavender, tart cherry, energizing peppermint, and tropical pina colada, they make a foot, heel, calf, hand, knee or elbow massage absolutely tranquil. Bonus: the buttery formula is easily spreadable.
