Christmas Gift Ideas

It’s that time of year again when we start stressing about Christmas gift ideas. We spend ages thinking about innovative and exciting gifts…

… only to discover that the recipient already has it! Every year we put ourselves through the utter nightmare queuing for ages to get into the parking lot to find that there is no parking. Once inside the over crowed mall, you have to search through products with inflated prices to find something that you’re not sure the person will like or not, only to stand in yet another queue. Madness!


If you don’t want to find yourself in this situation this year, why not let Life Day Spa take all the hassle and guess work out of your Christmas shopping with one of their gift cards? Giving a gift card is a win-win situation: you make your life easier, and your recipient will get a gift you can be sure they will actually use. You can even buy them online, so you don’t even have to leave the house!


Life Day Spa Cape Town’s gift cards offer you freedom and flexibility too. If you know what your recipient will enjoy, you can simply purchase a gift card for a specific treatment, but if you are unsure, or can’t decide, you can choose to give a monetary amount gift card.

Life Day Spa Cape Town Gift Ideas

At this time of the year there are so many different treatments that the people in your life will love and appreciate.


Workaholics will benefit from relaxing treatments like the Sulis Relax Ritual that includes a full body exfoliation followed by an incredibly relaxing full body massage.


Even men ‘who don’t wear cream’ will enjoy being treated to Dermalogica’s Men’s Executive Skincare Treatment Facial. Each step is customized to treat specific skin concerns.


South Africa’s climate can be really harsh on our skin, so hydrating and nourishing facials are best for treating and protecting skin from the sun. La Prairie’s Marine Biological facial uses marine-enriched products to deeply hydrate the skin and help repair any damage.


Most people don’t realize how much sun damage we get on our hands and arms from driving. Hands and arms are often neglected, and are the areas of the body that show the first signs of ageing  Optiphi’s Anti-Ageing Hand and Arm Peel is a low percentage peel that will gently remove dark spots, dry patches and also reduce fine lines and wrinkles.


Summer means having to look fab in swimwear. There’s no doubt that you need to watch your diet, and up your exercise to drop the kilos, but thankfully you can also cheat a little bit. A Seaweed detox body wrap uses marine algae to drain toxins and excess water from the body. This will make your skin look and feel smooth and firm.

The other great cheat is to get a tan. But as we hope you all know by now, the only safe tan is a fake one! The darker skin will give the illusion of a slimmer, firmer silhouette. For the best results, have a full body exfoliation before the application of the self-tan. This will ensure the tan absorbs evenly, making it more natural looking.


‘Backne’ (acne on the back) is a very common problem, not only for teenagers, but for stressed adults too. Nobody wants to wear a swimming costume with pimples on their back. Zap them with a Back Cleansing Treatment.


Who wants to worry about their normal, everyday beauty routine when on holiday? Life Day Spa offers some great long-lasting treatments to give you more time to relax. For nails, there is nothing better than Shellac, a long lasting gel-like nail polish that lasts an incredible 2 weeks! Why bother with mascara when you can tint your lashes, and not have to worry about them for weeks. And if you’re lacking in the lash department, you could try Eyelash Extensions. These false lashes are applied where you need or want them, and last for 2 to 3 weeks.


To complete any beach body, you’ll need some ‘finishing touches’. Life Day Spa Cape Town offers 6 different options of manicures and pedicures to get your hands and feet in tip top condition.
