gift guide for the wellness lover
Written by Grace
As a wellness destination, we’re surrounded by items and experiences that help us connect with the deep well of our being.
Naturally, we believe that a gift of wellness begins with Peninsula Hot Springs, however if you need a boost of insiration we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite gift ideas — from in-person craft workshops to products that inspire mindful moments.
Peninsula Hot Springs Gift Card
The beauty of gifting a Peninsula Hot Springs monetary gift card — apart from the fact that it whispers wellbeing — is that your recipient can choose exactly how they’d like to spend it. Our gift certificates start at $50 and can be redeemed on experiences in our Bath House or Spa Dreaming Centre (including spa treatments), as well as on our beautiful range of retail products. They can also be used at our sister springs, Metung Hot Springs. All of our gift cards are valid for three years.

Seek Solitude Yoga Props
For many wellness aficionados, having yoga props to use at home is a very enticing prospect. It’s even better when those props are ethically made and beautiful to look at. Mornington Peninsula-based Seek Solitude create yoga mats from a biodegradable natural rubber base with a microsuede lining and water-based inks. They also make meditation cushions, bolsters and yoga blocks — all packaged in fully recyclable or biodegradable packaging. Bundles are available if you’d like to provide your loved one with the full set.
