The Gift of Giving

This is a significant time of year where people gather to celebrate the festive season, leading up to Christmas and ending just after the new year.  Some gather for a religious reason and for others it may just be to enjoy time with loved ones or people within their community. 

To share. To give or receive a gift, a meal and hopefully a laugh or two and some good conversation.

 For the gift of giving, we have chatted with a couple of wonderful friends and they are delighted to share these insights and gifts with you:

The Festive Season thing that makes you feel good?

It’s the season of giving, and for me, there is nothing I love more than delighting family & friends with handpicked gifts from sustainable brands that give back to communities in need. One of these brands is Her Hands, who collaborate with Kenyan artists to create handmade pendant lights, weaved from upcycled wood. The income made from these beautiful pendants goes towards purchasing food & paying children’s school fees in these communities. Giving back is incredibly important to me, both personally & professionally, so supporting causes like this one makes me feel good during the festive season.

The Festive Season thing that makes you feel good?

Taking life gently, slowing the pace of life down, taking several deep breaths to be in the moment and smile.  And of course, knowing we are very future to be able to share wholesome food and happy times with people in my world.

Karen’s favourite juice that she blends daily and encouragingly shares with family and friends who may be visiting for a night or two.

Green Juice – green apple, celery, spinach & cucumber blended together. Add ginger or lemon if you wish for a bit of zest and additional goodness!

Celebrate with a Juice

There is always a cause for celebration.  Be it an annual date such as a festive event, a birthday, anniversary or the like.  Perhaps each week you like to take a moment and reflect on what has been and acknowledge achievements and progress or joys that have been experienced. 

So, the question is.  What is your celebratory beverage of choice?  A coffee martini, a wholesome hot cup of chai, a spritzer, a gin and tonic and of course the list is endless. We could also discuss delicious foods that go along with a little celebration, but we can keep that for another time!

At Spa Wellness Travel we’ve revamped with a ‘new look ~ new you’ vibe, so that is what we are celebrating.  To assist we asked the award winning Absolute Sanctuary in Koh Samui, Thailand if they could provide us alternatives to an alcoholic beverage to celebrate with.   

Their dedicated Vitamin Bar has a menu that includes Juices, Smoothies, Super Juices (incorporating Organic Superfood supplements, Power Blast Shakes (incorporating Organic Golden Pea Protein Powder) and Detox Drinks.  And when staying at Absolute Sanctuary most of their dedicated programs include two fresh juices or smoothies a day.

These drinks are delicious and offer a punch of benefits:

Liver Cleanse

  • 1 slice ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • Juice from 5 oranges
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • A pinch of paprika
  • 30 ml olive oil


Blend ginger and garlic together. Add the fruit juices and flavour with paprika. Pour in olive oil and whizz on speed 1 until well mixed.


This simple-to-make drink packs in all the goodness that is derived from oranges. Calcium in the citrus fruit builds healthy bones. It is high Vitamin B6 content supports the production of haemoglobin and the folate in the fruit prevents anaemia by promoting healthy red blood cells. This is the drink to take before or after a detox regime as it flushes out toxins from the liver and gall bladder.
