Find the best gift for you man

It is sometimes difficult to find interesting and unique gifts for the men in your life. We are all bored of buying socks for Dad, slippers for Grandad and a new tie for the hubbie at Christmas. So we thought we would give you a few examples of the unique gifts for men that we have here at The Travelling Souk. This Spanish Fig and Nutmeg Shaving Soap is extremely luxurious against the skin. It creates a smooth lather which soothes and moisturises the skin and the fragrance is just delicious. The unique aspect of this product comes in the form of the beautiful wooden bowl that the soap is packaged in. For only £16.00 this would be a luxury present that any man would greatly receive.

If it is a younger man that you are looking to buy a unique gift for; possibly a son or nephew, this GBR Wash Bag will go down a treat! It is made on the Isle of Wight from genuine recycled sail cloth making it hard wearing and practical. It looks great too, with nautical style appeal it is a perfect gift especially with the 2012 Olympics approaching rapidly!

Christmas Gift Fairs

Travelling Souk markets happen all over the UK, mainly during the Christmas Fair season and have raised well over £350,000 for a great number of charities since 2003.  Over the years we have exhibited our amazing selection of unique gifts all over Great Britain. We are the only fair organisers to hold several events in private manor houses not normally open to the public.

What magical ingredient keeps visitors coming back to The Travelling Souk? It has to be location, temptation and sensation! Our venues are captivating and extraordinary; we call them the unseen manor houses of Great Britain sprinkled with a liberal dose of revamped barns and racecourses.

Of course our stallholders are the vital constituent. We are obsessive about selecting the best stallholders. Any stallholder who has joined The Travelling Souk is in special in some way and offers unusual gifts for friends and family that you cannot buy elsewhere.

Don’t think for a moment though that these are places for shopping alone. They are places for meeting and feasting with irresistible home cooked fare second to none.

So, punctuate your hectic week!  Pick up your friends and take a trip to an elegant place where parking is easy, shopping for unusual Christmas gifts, personalised Birthday gifts or just unique gifts for friends is inspirational and, most importantly, giving is fun with every purchase supporting our hosts’ charities.

Watch this space for details about our 2011 Christmas fairs or join our mailing list to receive details.

Mobile Massage

Here at Buty Salon it is our wish to make life easier for our clients, not merely through the array of deeply relaxing and rejuvenating treatments we offer, but by bringing our service directly to your door.

Imagine you have just touched down from a long haul flight, your energy is zapped by jet lag and you have an important meeting first thing in the morning.

Wouldn’t it be bliss to recharge your batteries with a mobile massage in the comfort of your hotel room? Or perhaps you are a busy mother with little time for yourself. Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to sacrifice your regular facial? Thanks to our new mobile beauty therapy service, you no longer have to.

The benefits:

There are many benefits to having one of our therapists come to you. The ultimate in convenience, you no longer need to waste time or money traveling to appointments or face the potentially stressful hunt for a parking space. Mums no longer need to book a babysitter while stressed-out execs find they can now squeeze in some me time at the office during their lunch break and elderly and disabled customers can enjoy a service that mobility problems may have rendered unfeasible previously.

That is not all. Having a relaxing beauty treatment or massage at home also multiplies the feel-good effects. Clients feel more comfortable in their own surroundings, helping the de-stressing process to kick in more swiftly, while the fact that they don’t need to venture outside into the cold afterwards and can hop straight into bed means the body can truly capitalize on the restorative quality of the deep relaxation we offer.
