Well 2021 may not have been the year we'd all hoped for, but there's lots to look forward to! Christmas is just around the corner and if already dreading your present-shopping duties... hopefully we can make it a little easier with this gift guide, full of local goodies!
We are so fortunate to be surrounded by some very talented locals in Anglesea and along the Surf Coast. There is no better time to support local businesses and at Lux Spa & Wellness, we stock a range of beautiful, unique, organic and hand-made products. We hope you'll discover something new with our top gift ideas below!
Gifts for your besties (or yourself!)
Unique Local Crafts
Pops of Mack & Mill is a local Surf Coast business that stocks unique, hand-crafted pieces so they are truly one-of-a-kind! Penny designs and creates gorgeous macrame and beaded pieces with love, with a little story behind each one. Pop in and have a look at her pieces, we stock Penny's beautiful handmade earrings at Lux Spa & Wellness!
What home skincare routine would be complete without a rose quartz or jade facial roller? De'Veneys Beauty produce quality Australian beauty products, with a focus on using natural fibres and being eco-friendly, biodegradable and not tested on animals. You'll find their jade gua sha tool and facial rollers at Lux Spa & Wellness. For skincare and beauty lovers, these beauty tools will complete your at-home routines, increasing blood flow and flushing out lymphatic drainage, both of which are essential for healthy, glowing skin!
