A Hebridean Dream for Christmas

There’s a different feel to November 2020. We can’t believe it’s only six weeks until Christmas! What a year it’s been. Sometimes it feels as though it’s flown past, and on other days it feels like an endurance test for us all. Separated from family and friends, we don’t know exactly what the future holds; we don’t know what to expect from Christmas time, but we do know that we want to let our nearest and dearest know that we care.


At ishga on the Isle of Lewis, we’ll have our usual longer nights and shorter days and enjoy bracing walks on the beach, with clean, fresh air and wide-open skies. Christmas in the Hebrides is, as you’d imagine, a community affair, usually celebrated in cosy homes with good neighbours. We may not experience the fun of our traditional celidh this year, or a Hogmany celebration with friends, but we’ll enjoy ourselves and count our blessings.


Would you like to visit us? We’ll shortly be announcing the lucky winner of our amazing international giveaway! This month, one lucky customer will be chosen to win a Hebridean trip for two to Lewis. Their break will include Logan Air flights from UK airports to Stornoway, a stay at the historic Lews Castle Hotel, a generous bundle of ishga goodies, £500 worth of travel expenses paid, and a tour of the island by our founder Malcolm MacRae. You can enter it here,and for extra entries head over to our instagram and facebook pages.


With mid-winter approaching, we know a relaxing trip to the spa would be the perfect pick-me-up for many of you. However, it’s not so easy right now, so at ishga, we’ve thought of a special offer that will brighten your December, and give you luxurious, sensual products to enjoy over the holiday season.


From 1st to the 12th of December, we’ll be running the ‘12 days of ishga’, with a generous discount and a surprise daily giveaway. One day it could be our award-winning Anti-oxidant Marine Cream, on another, our ever-popular Hydrating Hand Cream, or our fragrant Shampoo or Conditioner. We’ll include a new surprise very day, so keep an eye on our website for your favourites, or for something to give to someone special.


We’ve just launched our ishga Christmas Cracker bundles too. With four different selections of organic skincare in each, there’s one to suit everyone, and our uplifting fragrances and sensual oils are certain to help brighten tired skin, and help with the winter months ahead. Socks, scarves or ishga? We know which we’d rather unwrap!


Whatever treats you have in store to make loved ones feel special this Christmas, keep the gift of ishga in mind. It’s a simply beautiful way to let those close to you know how much you care. Our lovingly created clean, vegan skincare will envelop their senses in the most wonderful aromas and give skin the healthy boost it needs during the festive season and beyond.
