Marshall White Christmas Gift Guide
We’ve put together a few ideas for the people in your life who deserve something extra special in their stocking this year.
The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and as we reach the end of this unusual and challenging year it’s more important than ever to show the people you love how much you appreciate them. We’ve put together a few ideas for the people in your life who deserve something extra special in their stocking this year.
For those who need pampering
Let’s face it, 2020 has been a stressful year. We’re sure there are plenty of people in your life who need to destress and unwind. What better way than to give them a way to feel pampered? A gift voucher for a spa gives them the flexibility to choose a rejuvenating facial, a luxurious massage or even a beauty treatment for that extra boost of post-Christmas confidence. Melanie Grant is an internationally renowned facialist who provides a range of skin treatments at her Armadale studio, with the option to choose from a menu of options or create a bespoke skin treatment experience.
For those who want to support regional businesses
After almost a year of being confined to our homes, people are itching to get out and explore. We’re lucky to live in this beautiful state, and Christmas is an excellent opportunity to support regional businesses. A gift certificate for a regional winery or restaurant gives people the opportunity to explore Victoria and indulge in amazing, locally produced food and wine. Try a gift certificate from Levantine Hill in the Yarra Valley, Sardine Eatery in East Gippsland or Pt Leo Estate on the Mornington Peninsula, for a range of unforgettable dining and tasting experiences.
For those who have missed the links
For the golf lovers in our lives, it’s been a tough year, with coronavirus restrictions preventing them from being able to play for months at a time. Help them celebrate being able to get back out to the course with a golfing gift they can show off on the green. The Daily Edited offers leather golf kits that can be embossed with your loved one’s initials, or maybe they’re in need of a fresh set of Callaway clubs. For those who have let their skills get a little rusty, the Albert Park Golf Course offer vouchers for golf lessons with a complimentary round of 9 or 18 holes.
For those who love reading – at any age
Santa Claus faces a big job every Christmas, so his brother from Down Under gives him a helping hand! Santa and his Brother Down Under is an adorable children’s book written by our director John Bongiorno, with beautiful illustrations from Caroline Keys. The story of Santa and his Aussie brother is sure to delight young and old. All proceeds from the sales go to Koala Kids, an organisation that supports Australian children with cancer by providing therapeutic resources, family support and fun activities to brighten their lives.
For those who love interiors
