The best Christmas gifts in Madrid

Sister, Brother, Mom, Dad, your best friend… The list is long and the time to find Christmas presents for them all is running out.

The problem is, they already have everything. Another purse, one more scarf, a new pair of earrings may be nice, but it will not actually leave a lasting impression. In a few months it will join all the other purses and scarves you have gifted over the years and be forgotten forever.
So how about this year we do something different? This year, instead of giving things, we give memories? Instead of a scarf, we give feelings?

That’s something only experiences can do. So we partnered up with the most fabulous hotels, spas and restaurants in Catalonia to create a collection of the very best experience gift vouchers. Trust me, your Mom would much rather spend a day being pampered (maybe even with you?) than pack away another purse… Let her collect memories, not not stuff.

So now relax, sit back, and have a look at our gift ideas here. Once you choose the perfect one, we will email you a beautiful gift voucher with a personalised message that can be printed or forwarded instantly. Perfect for last-minute Christmas shopping too!

Afternoon Tea at El Palace

El Palace Hotel Barcelona 5 * GL needs no introduction.

A wide selection of teas, refined French pastries at L'Éclair restaurant, unique architectural setting & live piano performances come together to make this a very special experience to remember forever.

Deep Tissue Massage & Spa Access at SOFIA Spa

SOFIA Oasis Wellness & Spa is just that: an oasis of more than 600 m2, including saunas, steam baths, caldarium, and salt cabin, inviting everyone to immerse themselves in the hydrotherapy pool or to discover pleasant sensations in the pools of water with different temperatures, in the ice fountain, and in shower circuits. This experience is enhanced by a therapeutic massage of the whole body, strong and localized, where the deepest muscular layers are worked, relaxing the zones of greater muscular tension and relieving the pain.

Golf Tour Day at PGA Catalunya

Immensely beautiful Tour Course at PGA Catalunya Resort is dominated by pine trees and lakes - truly a sight to behold! It is a little shorter and a little less difficult to play than the Stadium Course, making it a truly luxurious experience.
