What better way to spoil the people you care about than with a gift that makes them feel better?
Especially after such a surreal and hectic year, where the focus has been more on just keeping the head above the water, rather than on self-care.
While this holiday season certainly is going to be different than those in the past, it's the ideal time to slow down and help people you love to recharge.
If you're looking for the perfect self-care gift to spoil someone special, we got you covered with these gift ideas, suitable for different people and budgets.
For those who never put themselves first
This is the ultimate self-care gift for those in your life who always put their own needs aside for others. It includes all kinds of goodies! Like Pegaga, an Asian superfood blend that cleanses, nourishes, and detoxes your body. As if that wasn't enough, Pegaga has an anti-anxiety, calming effect as well.
A Back Flower Love & Positivity Face Mist, a gorgeous rose quartz crystal, natural soap, meditations, and so much more, are also a part of the package to ensure maximum relaxation.
This is the perfect gift for the most selfless people in your life, because it's about time they kick back and focus on themselves for once.
2. DIY Bath Salts
Scent & Self-care with a personal touch
If your loved ones need to unwind, why not treat them to a jar of beautiful, scented DIY bath salts? Not only does this gift encourage self-care, but it's also homemade, which adds a personal touch to it! And don't worry if you're short on time, it’s extremely easy to make.
All you need are:
- 3 cups of Epsom salt
- 2 cups of sea salt
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 15-20 drops of your favorite relaxing essential oil (perhaps lavender or eucalyptus).
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, with the essential oil last. Put the complete mix into a glass jar, and voilà - you just made your own signature bath salt!
For an extra elegant look, tie a ribbon on the jar, or find other unique ways to decorate it. This is a simple, but thoughtful and surprisingly easy, DIY gift! Who will be the lucky receiver?
For big life changes and when a reminder of "you're amazing" is appropriate
This set is the ideal gift for someone who’s going through big life changes or simply needs an extra boost of morale and confidence! It includes four of our signature Bach Flower Remedies: Courage Tincture, Focus Tincture, Energy Tincture, and Hope Tincture.
Simply choose the remedy you need most at the moment. Put four drops into a glass of water, and drink it four times a day. Alternatively, place four drops directly under your tongue.
This unique gift set is the ultimate way to show your loved ones that you believe in them, and give them that extra boost of confidence. What a great friend you are!
4. DIY Lavender Sachets
Encourage good sleep and fill those stocking stuffers
How to better encourage sweet dreams and a good rest, than with homemade lavender sachets that can be placed under your loved ones’ pillows? These make lovely stocking stuffers and are incredibly easy to make!
You only need:
- Some dried lavender
- Leftover cloth (like from an old t-shirt or pillowcase)
- A scissor and a measuring tape
- A needle and thread.
Measure and cut the cloth to the size you prefer (typically two pieces equal in size, shaped as small squares). Then sew up all the sides together, apart from one. Fill the little pocket with lavender and sew up the fourth side. That’s it! Now you have a lovely, scented, homemade gift.
