The word mum could be viewed as a synonym for martyr as mums are well and truly renowned and infamous for putting everybody else before their own health and wellbeing, so give a special mum in your life some TLC pampering for Christmas this year.
Mums can NEVER have enough hand cream. Research into the psychology of gift giving shows that gifts that are functional and chosen to help or cheer someone up are viewed as highly meaningful by the receiver. There is also a beautiful symbolism to be found in gifting your mum with something to nourish and take care of her hands.
Being a salon of hand cream junkies we’ve road tested them all and our faves are highly nourishing and organic hand cream like Dr Hauschka, MV Organic Hand Rescue, Eminence Vanilla Mint, Surfer and Two Girls, Carlotta Hand balm or Panier des Sens Honey hand cream (for the queen bee!).
PAMPERING AND NURTURING EXPERIENCE
Show your mum how much you care ‘with an experience gift voucher for a rejuvenating massage or organic facial. Or even better, book their appointment for them and offer to baby sit while they’re being pampered. We also offer pregnancy massage throughout all stages of pregnancy for mums-to-be as well as Acupuncture.
It can be truly exhausting having to keep coming up with awesome presents year after year for your BFF. If you’re lying awake at night wondering what to buy your BFF for Christmas this year then make sure you come in and check these out.

A set of Australian made and locally designed, Soulful Woman guidance cards with images painted by women all around the world will keep your BFF friend (and you when you visit for turmeric latte) inspired, motivated and uplifted for many years to come. Some people have bought them just for the images as they are so unique!
The ‘Fussy Person’
There can’t be many things more stressful about present shopping than being lumped with buying the Christmas gift for a fussy person, especially if they’re important. Whoever first came up with the phrase “it’s better to give than receive”, had obviously never gone shopping for a ‘fussy person’.
Whether it’s your wife, husband, mother in law or your boss, one of the best gifts for a fussy person is an experience rather than a wrappable item.
Unless your fussy person is an adrenalin junky, a gift voucher for a sky diving experience could be taken the wrong way so instead opt for pampering experiences like massage and facials. Who isn’t stressed out to the max these days – so would 100% benefit from having their soul, skin and body pampered with organic and gently nourishing active treatments. Call us to organise a gift voucher for a relaxation or remedial massage or choose from our range of organic facials. We promise that your fussy person will be in good hands when they come for their pampering treatments. Trust me, we are fussy too, so we – well, we kind of know
