What are good gifts for self-care?

The best gifts for self-care are simple yet enjoyable, like journals, oil diffusers, skincare items, and spa gift baskets.

Below, we’ll share self-care gift ideas for her, him, and everyone!

Wellness Journal

One of the best ways to love yourself is by checking in with yourself. A wellness journal lets your gift recipient refresh their mindset and set intentions for a fabulous day. This is perfect for those who enjoy journaling or are looking for a new daily routine to promote wellness. 

Essential Oil Diffuser

Give the gift of aromatherapy with an essential oil diffuser and a couple of essential oils to pair with it. Essential oils are known to improve mood and health, and what better way to do this than with a pleasant scent for your loved one’s home or office? 

Diffusers are also easy to use. Simply plug in, add water and a few drops of oil, and turn on. Then, oils diffuse into the air releasing great smells and wellness benefits.

Happiness in a Box

This inspiring box of quirky faux matchsticks is a great self-care gift for the person who has everything. It’s perfect for a coffee table or desk decor and offers prompts that encourage finding happiness in even the small things. Ideas like ‘make plans to look forward to’ and ‘recall a happy memory’ spark joy when your gift recipient needs it most.

Spa Gift Card

One of the best gifts for self-care you can give is a relaxing day at the spa. Experience gifts are also one of the most meaningful and memorable gifts you can give. A spa gift card is the perfect way to allow your loved one to customize their self-care gift. 

Like Oakwell Beer Spa in Denver, most spas allow gift card recipients to choose the spa treatment of their choice on a day that works best for them. This is great for those who aren't so easy to buy for or need a special day to kick back and relax.
