After the year we’ve all had, it’s safe to say that wellness gifts are in order. And although the festive season is officially underway, there’s still loads of time to sort out your Christmas gifts to show your loved ones that you care. We get it: everyone has their own self-care routine, whether that includes stretching out on a yoga mat or pampering with a beauty gift set. For others, it might be something more like a weeknight takeaway or a much-needed Netflix binge. Whatever works, and there’s absolutely no shame in doing one or the other.
Daily planners and journals make great wellness gifts for anyone who loves new year’s resolutions and thrives on staying well-organised. Plus, it always helps to manifest your positive thoughts and put them to paper. This gorgeous wellness journal from Papier is a solid contender for exactly that, featuring 12 weeks’ worth of pages to track your sleep, food and water intake.
If they’re into aromatherapy, an electric diffuser can make all the difference to their mood. They can pop one in their living space or bedroom, and the subtly-scented purified air will help them to feel focused or relaxed (depending on the essential oil they choose). You could even combine a diffuser with wellness gifts like a good scented candle, silk sleep mask or a night-time body care set to give your beauty sleep the boost it deserves.
Given the wide variety of options out there, you could potentially spend hours stressing over all the best well-being gifts – which is very counter-productive. No matter how you define self-care, looking after yourself is undeniably important. But where to start? Right here. Below, we’ve put together an edit of wellness gifts that will help inspire relaxation, mindfulness and new self-care rituals. And even outside of Christmas, they serve as great inspo for gift ideas for any occasion, whether that’s a birthday, Valentine’s Day and everything in between.
