Spa

By Stephanie Ila Silver-Silberstein

Santa Claus just wouldn’t be the same after a chemical peel and a cellulite reducing spa treatment, but he certainly deserves some major pampering after riding around on his sleigh delivering gifts all night in the freezing cold. Actually, we all deserve some spa-like indulgence this holiday season! And these holiday spa gifts sets will last a heck of a lot longer than an hour-long massage.

For those on your list with a green thumb, these 5 essential Gardener products from Thymes – with the fragrance of freshly clipped grass, aromatic parsley, cool watercress, dewy moss and a pinch of pink peppercorn – are all wrapped up and ready to go in a handy gardener’s carrying kit. The set includes Purifying Hand Wash, Replenishing Hand Cream, a Herbaceous Candle, SPF 15 Lip Balm and a Convenient Nail Brush. Visit http://www.thymes.com to purchase.
