Little Luxuries Make Life Easier

4 Gifts to Give Yourself

2011 little luxuries gift guide!

Ask Granny — or someone about to miss a flight to the Bahamas — and she’ll tell you time is the most precious gift of all. This holiday season we are giving busy friends the chance to slow down with time-saving services.

An Extra Pair of Hands
We’ve found a man who happily changes lightbulbs, fixes the sink, builds flat-pack furniture and even takes the rubbish out. A session with the lovely boys at Handyman Express is a no-brainer for the single girl.

A Clear Conscious
Don’t feel bad for not cleaning up. Simply leave the dirty work to Puur Eco Home Services. The friendly team uses nontoxic and biodegradable products to get your palace sparkling.

The New IT Man
Place a distress call to Scooter Computer, and a tech guy comes round within 24 hours to help zap viruses, set up equipment or teach basic computer skills. A great gift for anyone who needs her wires uncrossed.

Knot for Nothing
Don’t waste time worrying. Melt away holiday stress with a holistic full-body massage at the calming Aman Spa. Finish with a dip under the soothing waterfall in the heated pool and a trip to the scented steam room.
