If you’re on the hunt for beauty gift ideas ahead of the Christmas season, and are looking for luxury beauty gift inspiration for him or for her, then check out our pick of the best gifts around:
1. A week’s detox at Chenot Palace Weggis for healing luxury.

Chenot Palace's signature detox package is the perfect gift for somebody looking to achieve deep purification and detoxification of the body.
The week-long detox has been designed to enhance the natural mechanisms by which your body processes and lets go of metabolic waste and toxins, rejuvenating the body's systems and tissues and restoring hormonal balance in the process.
Included in the package are medical consultations, advanced diagnostic tests, a bespoke low-calorie plant-based nutritional plan and highly individualised targeted treatments.
Working in synergy with your body's in-built detoxifcation and purification systems, a one week stay at Chenot Palace ensures effective and complete detoxification and a feeling of renewal.
