One of the most unique gifts you can give someone is the gift of nothing! We’re serious. You can give your loved one the joy of experiencing nothingness in the form of weightlessness and silence inside a floatation tank, designed to alleviate stress, boost creativity, release muscle tension and simply improve their wellbeing. You can get a gift voucher for any amount. Let them choose what to spend it on or chose one of our packages for them. Buy floats here.
Massage is a classic gift for someone who deserves a little pampering. Add a unique spin by making it a chocolate massage for a birthday, anniversary or Valentine’s day gift.

You can purchase one of Float Culture’s massages here.
