Last-Minute Holiday Gift Sets

Spa Bleu of South Barrington and West Dundee Offers Last-Minute Holiday Gift Sets

Spa Bleu, an Aveda hair salon and spa in South Barrington and West Dundee, is offering holiday gift sets for last-minute shoppers.

For those who are wondering what to get a loved one or friend, Spa Bleu in South Barrington and West Dundee still has Aveda Holiday Gift Sets available. Not only do these gifts bring joy to the receiver, but they also help individuals and families in Nepal.

“Drop by Spa Bleu to view available sets and experience Aveda while spreading the holiday spirit,” Heather Hazlett of Spa Bleu said.

2012 marks the fifth year that Aveda has been purchasing paper from Nepal for its gifts sets. The paper is made of lokta bark, and is handmade by mostly women whose skills produce strong, beautiful and acid-free paper in a similar way to how it was produced in the 12th century. Locals believe that the paper can last for a thousand years.

Aveda has purchased more than 1 million sheets of paper since the program began, which has given employment to 4,975 people. An amazing 90 percent of the papermakers are women, who give back to their communities. That means 2,400 families can live better, buy food and clothing, repair their homes, send their children to school, and save for the future. Protecting 34,000 acres of forest also fights climate change.

“This is truly a gift for all!” Hazlett said.
