So enter: the luxury of Spa la Vie by L’Occitane indulgence that offers you the choice of revitalizing massages, rejuvenating facials, and scrub and wrap services nurtured by the land, ingredients and rituals of the Mediterranean.

Fit and fine - two words every newly married couple should live by. A FitBit is a welcome (and honestly, no-fuss) idea because it’s unique and now that it’s paid for - you’ll use it. The good thing about giving Fitbit as a gift is that it is an investment for the couple and an essential one at that. Phew, good to know that someone has taken it off your shoulders and given you no more excuses to get out and get fit.
