If you’re stumped for what to get those with a love for all things wellness, then read on for all the inspiration needed to delight health-conscious friends and family with last-minute Christmas gifts—and we promise, they’ll never know you nearly forgot.
A Luxury Wellness Retreat
We’re always an advocate for gifting wellness retreats whether it’s Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, or just for fun: there’s nothing more life-changing than the transformational nature of an expert-led wellness retreat. Whether a staycation in Hong Kong, or one a short flight away, Compare Retreats has plenty to choose from. Not sure which one is right for your friend? Speak to one of our travel concierge team and get some personalised advice.
A Spa Day
Most people never really treat themselves to the spa, so this is the perfect gift: a little self-care, either solo or perhaps for you and your loved one to experience together. Hong Kong is home to some of the world’s best spas, so you really are spoilt for choice. Not sure whether they’d prefer a massage or facial? Get a voucher that they can put towards their preferred therapy.
Personal Training Sessions
Do you have a friend or family member looking to launch their wellness journey, but they’re not sure how? Get them on the right track with a block of personal training sessions. While plenty of gyms around Hong Kong are home to excellent personal trainers, put a luxe twist on it by going for the membership athletic clubs at some of the five-star hotels like Mandarin Oriental or St Regis instead.
A Membership at a Wellness Club
Go beyond the standard gym and help your wellness warrior friend go deeper into their journey with a comprehensive holistic wellness experience that combines body work, movement, meditation, and spirituality. Urban wellness clubs are popping up all over the place, and places like Fivelements Habitat Hong Kong offer three, six and 12-month memberships which give members to daily, unlimited access to Sacred Arts Classes Priority bookings, as well as discounts on spa therapies, dining, events, and bookings for retreats at Fivelements Bali.
A Flower Subscription
We’re firm believers that wellbeing starts at home, and creating a happy place to come home to can shape your outlook for the week ahead. There are few better pick-me-ups for this than a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Sustainable florists like Bydeau offers weekly, bimonthly and monthly flower subscriptions—unique arrangements to brighten up your home and lift your spirits.
