We know not everyone celebrates Christmas but if you do then you may be a bit indecisive as to what to get for your loved ones.
We thought that we would help with some ideas both for a good budget and a low budget as well.
We don’t all need loads of stuff here do we? But sometimes it is nice to treat the ones you love.
Just Click on their titles for more details...
Pet Tawan Silver Jewellry
Pet Tawan in Thong Sala is owned by one of our favourite ladies Andrea Srirat and her husband.
Here you will find lots of individual pieces of silver jewellry incorporating an array of stones and crystals. This is one super cool shop, you can also make custom orders by picking out stones then talking through what kind of design you would like with Andrea and her husband who hand craft with love all of the pieces of jewellry themselves. Andrea is also knowledgeable in the healing of stones so go ahead and ask her advice.
Moontribe Progressive Fashion
Moontribe has two shops, one in Baan Tai and a new one in Thong Sala (very close to Pet Tawan in fact!).
Moontribe is well established for their quality brands of trance and urban wear so this is the perfect place to go if you want to buy someone a unique, high quality piece of individual clothing.
Make a Handmade Card
What could be better than a card made by your own hands and with love. Koh Phangan is known to bring out the creative being in all of us. Most people love something handmade, no matter if you’re artistic or not, it means that some pure honest love went into it!
Get yourself some card, bring out some pens and pencils, get drawing, doodling or whatever, get yourself some glitter or sticky stuff and decorate your own card for someone special, with a personal note inside. Easy.
Natasha Radko Jewellry
Natasha makes earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Made with silver connections and precious gems and stones which have been polished into beautiful beads. She makes all of her pieces with the feeling of the stones and the person. These are very stylish and suitable for that lovely lady in your life.

If you would like your loved one, male or female to have a bit of pampering then there is no other place to send them for a treatment than Island Beauty Spa run by the gorgeous Katerina Suvorova.
