Things We Love

Give the gift of calm this Christmas with the perfect robe and towels

If there's one thing we all need in the run up to Christmas it’s a few moments of calm. A little time each day to stop... breathe...  and clear out unhelpful thoughts. And while finding time is always tricky when there’s so much to do, such simple acts of self-care can go a long way to helping us de-stress and strengthen our frame of mind.

If that isn’t a good enough reason to gift someone a little ‘wellness’ this Christmas, you might want to read our article on the importance of wellness on good health. But with so many self-care gifts on the market, how do you find one your loved ones will want and use? The answer? Go for a classic, gender-neutral gift people use daily, then personalise it with their name for an extra special touch.

Wellness gifts that keep giving all year.

Personalised bath robes

A gorgeous velour bath robe is a wardrobe essential, ideal for that just got out of bed moment, slipping into after a shower or bath, or mooching about in, especially in light of rising heating costs.

They also make ideal gifts for the whole family, after all, everyone likes warmth, especially in the depths of winter. If you don’t see someone very often, it’s also the equivalent of gifting them a big warm hug!

As with all things, not all bath robes are equal. A good quality soft and absorbent velour bathrobe will feel weightier, promoting relaxation, and offer a little 5-star luxury at home. A spa waffle robe is lighter, and will deliver more of a luxury spa-like feel .  They are also easy to pack in a weekend away bag.

Popular gift ideas for all occasions include our personalised fluffy dressing gown with hood and personalised waffle robes – both age and gender-neutral they are ideal for year-round use. Our soft, fluffy and irresistibly cute dog towelling robe also makes a great personalised pet gift. After all, dogs need to dry off and relax too!


Luxury bath towel set 

Bathing is a quick way to de-stress and feel good, if the towel’s up to the job. Too small and it won't dry your body completely. Too stiff or scratchy and it’ll irritate the skin. Too thin and you may as well air dry. The fact is, we all love a good towel, hence why towels make our list of ideal gifts.

Towels vary in quality, but we find the best are made from 100% Turkish cotton. Our luxury 5-star hotel clients also prefer a 550-650gsm weight. This extra fine cotton yarn and weight keeps towels thick, absorbent, and looking and feeling good wash after wash. They also feel beautifully soft against the skin.

Bathing aside, new towels also freshen up a bathroom. A stack of neatly folded towels instantly creates a luxury spa-like feel. Adding a gorgeous tufted bath mat and houseplants can also amp up the luxe factor, as can a white waffle robe hanging on the door.

However, when gift-giving, personalised embroidered towels are ideal for any occasion - weddings, birthdays, Xmas, even baby showers and christening. Our soft, hooded baby towel with ears is especially cute! A choice of colours also mean a personalised towel set can tie in with existing décor, with colourfast dye technology locking the colour in.
