It’s the season of jolly and merry—and indulging in our December favorites. But when your LBD demands you not ingest hot buttered rum and peppermint mochas at regular intervals, consider new options. You may want to wrap yourself in these flavors instead.

A creamy whole milk soak moisturizes and soothes tired feet before an exfoliation using a butter rum brown sugar scrub. This buttery-rich treatment finishes with a sweet cinnamon massage to spice up your day and deliver vitamin-packed nutrients to the deepest layers of winter-parched skin.  ($45, Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah)

Warmth & Wellness
This three-part holistic body treatment begins with a sea-salt-and-crushed-olive-stone body polish, followed by a detoxifying clay body mask and chakra energy work. It ends with a full-body massage and application of Amala’s organic Mediterranean Myrtle, fig and olive body butter.  ($305, The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental New York in New York City)

Candy Cane Champagne Dream Manicure
