As we hit December, Christmas madness sets in.
Whilst you’re constantly circling for a park at the shops you think, ‘there’s got to be an easier way to do my Christmas shopping’.
You get a thought. Phew – ‘I’ll just shop online’. But unfortunately delivery cut off dates have already occurred for many retailers.
Guess what? We have the perfect option for you: an Earth and Skin Gift Voucher. Here are our top 5 reasons why it’s the most wanted present under the tree.
It’s affordable – Spend and save
Christmas has always been an expensive time of year, and now, with the cost of living and the rising interest rates this year everyone is feeling the pinch more than ever.
We want to be able to provide the local community with a great gift that’s not only super appreciated but affordable. That’s why we are running our Christmas Spend and Save again this year.
For every $250 you spend on gift vouchers and products, we will give you a $50 treatment voucher. If you spend $500, we will give you two vouchers! These $50 treatment vouchers are valid until June 2023 and make the perfect Christmas gift for those deserving of a relaxing treatment (which is almost everyone).
The promotion is available both online and in-spa until Christmas Day (Saturday December 25) so even those really last minute purchases won’t miss out.
2. Freedom to let them choose
If they don’t send a wishlist, it can be hard to know what your loved ones actually want for Christmas. What size are they? What colour would they prefer? What suits them best?
Sometimes, these questions can get overwhelming and can lead you to purchasing an unwanted gift…. Eeek!
It’s estimated $400 million was spent on 10 million unwanted gifts last Christmas, many of which were discarded and likely ended up in landfill. Novelty items, candles, pyjamas, slippers, underwear and socks are among the least appreciated gifts, a national survey shows.( SMH )
An Earth and Skin gift voucher gives them total flexibility to choose what they would like to receive. A massage, facial, Henna brows or LED Light Therapy are some examples of popular treatments redeemed with gift vouchers.
They can also redeem the voucher on one of our many brands that are vegan, cruelty-free and low-tox in our Beauty Shop. Some brands include Mukti Organics, Vanessa Megan and Willow by the Sea just to name a few.
3. Avoiding landfill waste
We’ve found some seriously scary statistics about waste around the silly season:
- We generate up to 50 per cent more waste during the silly season – ABC NEWS
- A survey found Australians use an average of eight metres of paper for Christmas gifts, only for it to be ripped off, discarded and destined for bins and landfill.
Yikes. It’s scary to see just how much we consume during this period that actually isn’t needed, such as copious amounts of wrapping paper.
We print our gift vouchers on recyclable, sustainable paper that actually breaks down. Great for your compost bin! Better yet, we have our online gift vouchers that don’t need to be printed at all.
4. Give from a distance
Live in Melbourne but have a friend that lives on the Gold Coast? Our online vouchers can be purchased anywhere in the world making them an excellent option to give from a distance.
Just simply purchase online and we will automatically send out a beautiful digital voucher to the recipient’s email address.
5. Forces self-care and appreciation
Last but certainly not least, giving an Earth and Skin gift voucher provides the recipient with the reminder to take some much deserved and needed self-care.
Who doesn’t need a spa day!?
As you can see, there is no reason to battle the shopping centre crowds, the best gift is located at 2 Regency Place Mudgeeraba or online!
