2012 has been a strange year. For all the jubilation and activity of, well, jubilees and the Olympics, there’s been just as much doom and gloom speculation and phrases including ‘double dip recession’ and ‘job cuts’ cluttering up news headlines. For large swathes of Europe summer failed to arrive – or, at least, stay for longer than a day or two, and now, surprisingly, it’s almost time to bid farewell to this year and move on to the next.
Inevitably as the end of the year approaches so too does Christmas and the realisation that it’s coming around quicker than an express train on roller skates. Conversations are already being hijacked by talk of the festive season and the gloats of the varying stages at which other people’s Christmas shopping is. If you’re reading this with a sense of creeping despair at the incomplete – or even un-started – state of your own Christmas shopping then here’s something that just might help you when it comes to spending so much time wondering what to get someone that you run out of time: spa gift vouchers.
Let’s face it; there’s always at least one person for whom the ideas for the perfect gift simply aren’t there and heading to the shops for inspiration results in nothing more than miserable wandering from store to store before settling on something that might just as well do. A spa gift voucher is the ideal way to combat just such problems while showing someone that you genuinely care – even if, really, you’re not all that bothered.
