16 DECEMBER 2008

The credit crunch may mean a visit to a spa is far more of a luxury than we'd like, but it's still possible to bring a spa-like feel to your Christmas with indulgent gifts from Champneys.

Or there's the Sensuous Rose Collection, £8, to create a relaxing bathtime – Skin Soothing Rose Bath Cream, 100ml, and two Rose Votive Candles.

You can even create a spa on the go with Body Therapy Weekend Bag, £20, which contains Citrus Glow Energising Shower Gel, 200ml; All-In-One Skin Smoothing Facial Wipes; Double Enzyme Mask Sachet; Citrus Glow Body Lotion, 50ml; Vitamiracle Hand & Nail Cream, 35ml; and a face cloth.
