Four independent Exmouth businesses have linked up to offer gift vouchers with a difference.

Hands-on Health has got together with Stuart Lines Cruises, the Deli on the Strand and Exmouth Cycles to make sure residents can buy their gifts right here in Exmouth.

It is all part of a scheme to help people ‘shop local’ for their Christmas presents this year.

They can choose from a River Exe Relaxer, which includes a river cruise and a seated neck and shoulder massage, luxurious chocolate truffles and a relaxing seated massage, or, for those buying someone a new bike for Christmas, a full leg massage after that first ride!.

Albie McMahon, partner at Hands-on Health, said: “We wanted to highlight that Exmouth is full of great independent businesses, so you don’t need to go anywhere else to do your Christmas shopping. The vouchers are inexpensive, they have a real local character and you won’t find them anywhere else!”

Pop into any of the four businesses, or see www.hands-onhealth.co.uk/shop-local-vouchers for more information.
