Are you still seeking that special gift for the one you love? Luckily, I’ve done the work so you can rest assured that you’ll have the best gift under the tree. I happily continue on my quest to bring you the very best gift ideas in Paso Robles. The theme for this series is quite simple: Rest, Relation and Pampering in Paso Robles.
A weekend getaway to Paso Robles complete with a day of pampering will make you a hero on Christmas morning. Consider me your personal shopping assistant as we put together a package that they’ll never forget.
What are you waiting for—let’s start planning!
Paso Robles has accommodations to suit every need or desire from simple to luxurious. I happen to stumble upon an “Insider” secret recently—Paso Robles Hotel Month is in February. Book two nights at participating hotels and receive the third night FREE. You heard me—three fabulous nights in Paso Robles for the price of two. Imagine a weekend of wine tasting, fine dining, pampering, reconnecting and fun.
While planning your trip, take advantage of some amazing holiday specials at your favorite spas. River Oaks Hot Springs Spa offers unique, custom packages – she can indulge in an hour-long, full body massage while you are playing six holes on the River Oaks Golf Course. Meet back at a mineral tub with a bottle of wine for a second hour of relaxing together. They can create a custom package to suit your individual needs.

Your gift basket to Paso Robles is almost complete—one key ingredient is missing. The gift of true relaxation is lavender! Central Coast Lavender is offering a couple of my favorite products which are essential to your weekend retreat: “Balance” Hand & Body Lotion is infused with aromatic lavender essential oil—known for their rich and luxurious feel. The lavender and aloe “Healing Butter” will relieve muscle aches, joint pain and promotes healing—it’s excellent for massages!
