Still searching for the perfect gifts for important people in your life? In case you missed previous posts in my Boulder holiday gift guide series, I’ve covered jewelers, home + fashion, and experience + entertainment. While jewelry, artwork, or museum memberships are great, sometimes nothing compares to a luxurious experience in self-care. The holiday season can be stressful, and I can almost guarantee that the ideas mentioned here will be met with enthusiasm (and maybe a sigh of relief):
Gift Cards to OPEX Element 6
If you’re not familiar with OPEX Element 6, I encourage you to check it out for yourself, in addition to the loved ones you’re shopping for. OPEX not only offers customized personal training programs, it also provides acupuncture and bodywork services to strengthen and soothe the body and mind. When giving the gift of wellness, I highly recommend personal training sessions with Sky!
Treatments From Leah Nickie Advanced Aesthetics
Leah Nickie Advanced Aesthetics is Boulder’s premier med spa. If you know someone who’s striving for beautiful (yet natural) skincare results, treatments from this spa will be the ultimate gift. Leah Nickie offers an array of services, including facials, waxing, skin and body services, as well as advanced medical aesthetics.
A Spa Day at The Dragontree
The Dragontree is devoted to fostering peace and providing a refuge from stress. The spa offers rejuvenative therapies and products while serving as an educational resource. By offering tools and programs for self-maintenance and healing, The Dragontree seeks to cultivate a community populated by centered, peaceful, and healthy individuals.
A Spa Day at the St Julien
Time at St Julien Hotel and Spa is always a treat. When your goal is to help someone on your list relax and unwind, nothing does the trick like a day of pampering at the hotel’s renowned spa. Whether you select individual services or opt for a package (such as the Day of Decadence), your special someone is guaranteed to feel loved.
Süti & Co.
For those who appreciate life’s little pleasures, a gift card to Süti & Co. is a wonderful choice. This Scandinavian-inspired coffee shop and café has perfected the art of the simple things, and every visit is soothing to the soul. For starters, the space is beautiful and designed to help you take a deep breath and just enjoy the moment. The desserts and coffee here are unrivaled (the shortbread is the best!), and the shop also offers a carefully curated selection of home goods.
Pekoe is an adorable tea house that offers coffee, tea, boba, and delectable bites. Once you step into the store, you’ll see why it’s quickly become such a popular spot since its founding in 2020. You’ll find more than just fresh boba here, including a delightful selection of retail items, that make fantastic stocking stuffers.
In many ways, encouraging others to take time for themselves is the best gift you can give. Boulder is home to truly exceptional spas, wellness centers, and spaces designed to minimize stress and maximize fun. If you’d like to ease the stress of someone special in your life, I hope these ideas are helpful. Regardless of who’s on your list and what you have in mind for them, I wish you and yours a joyful season and happy shopping!
