‘Tis the season for giving gifts! While certain people in everyone’s life aren’t very picky or are super easy to buy for, most people understand how difficult it can be to find high-value gifts that people will actually like and use. One way to avoid getting loved ones’ gifts that don’t actually serve them is to look at self-care items. Self-care gifts are designed to improve a person’s life and wellbeing. So if you are stumped on what to get a loved one this holiday season, consider getting them any one of these self-care gifts.
One of the most effective ways to practice some self-care is establishing a skincare routine. If you have a loved one who prioritizes their skincare and is always looking for new ways to improve their routine, fresh skincare products might be the perfect self-care gift for them. Things like sheet masks are relatively inexpensive and loaded with ingredients designed to smooth, soothe, and hydrate skin. In addition to sheet masks, a high-quality moisturizer and a gentle cleanser make for great gift items. Do a little research on safe, effective skincare products or do some sleuthing to see what your loved ones like using. A small basket of skincare treats can really make someone’s day.
You know what is going to make a person feel even more luxurious while they are applying their new skincare products? Wearing a soft, flannel robe and furry slippers while they lather up their face with skincare goods. Sometimes, all a person needs in their life is a thick, warm robe and something soft to keep their feet cozy. These two items can seriously improve a person’s morning routine or make it easier for people to wind down in the evening. Think about it: wouldn’t it be so much easier to get out of bed on a cold morning when a person has a soft robe waiting for them?
Is this person you have in mind not one for robes and slippers? Then surely they would appreciate a good blanket! Everyone needs blankets in their home, whether for their bed or to throw over a sofa in the living room. Make someone’s day by getting them a high-end blanket. Take note of the material used to construct the blanket and feel its texture. You want to get a loved one a blanket that is durable enough to last for years but soft and thick enough to keep them warm on cold nights. Nothing is better than curling up on the sofa to watch a favorite movie with a glass of wine and a new, cozy blanket.
Whether your loved one is a yoga enthusiast or just wants to spend more time stretching during their morning routine, a yoga-themed gift set is a great idea! Instead of simply buying someone a new yoga mat, make a gift set out of it. Find a yoga mat in the style and color that matches their personal preferences and supplement the gift with additional pieces like soothing essential oils, a box of herbal tea, and a yoga block. All of these little items can make their yoga session even more relaxing.
Sometimes all a person needs in order to reset is a long soak in a hot bath. Make your loved one’s bath experience even more luxurious by giving them a bath gift set this holiday season. Things like bath bombs, coconut milk powder, and Epsom salts serve to relax the mind even more and soothe the skin. You can also throw in additional items like a fluffy bath towel, gourmet chocolate, a bottle of red wine, and nourishing lotions. If your loved one isn’t big on baths, you can elevate their shower experience with shower steamers, which are small aromatherapy cubes with scents like mint, eucalyptus, and lavender.
This would be a wonderful gift to receive for anyone who considers themselves an avid reader. If you know your friend or family member loves to settle down at the end of the day with a good book, a book gift basket may be just the thing to get them. Fill the basket with their all-time favorite books or books you know they will enjoy reading. You could also add a gift card to a local bookstore or local coffee shop. Fill the basket with other items like their favorite snacks and some new tea flavors. All of these things will help them dive into a different world while they read a riveting story and munch on their favorite snacks.
