The Gift of Small Indulgences - Four Seasons Gift Cards

Receiving a gift card tops the holiday wish list, according to a recent study of affluent consumers by Harrison Group for American Express Publishing*. This festive season, give them what they want with a Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Gift Card from Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. Redeemable worldwide for virtually anything, recipients can treat themselves to small indulgences in Sydney or abroad.

"Four Seasons Gift Cards are a wonderful last minute gift for that hard to buy for person on your list," said Stephen Lewis, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. "This year's festive season is a time to spoil those you love and pamper them after a year of many ups and downs. Gift Cards open up a world of shared experiences and which can be as simple as enjoying a signature spa treatment to indulging in a five course Chef's Table dinner with sixteen friends, the choice is yours."
