2020 has been a crazy year, to say the least. So, this holiday season, we’re showing our appreciation to our friends and loved ones by giving them the best self-care gifts to relax their bodies and minds.
There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to self-care but there are some generalities. Self-care is all about dedicating time to make yourself feel better; whether that is taking daily naps, indulging in skin care, or wearing comfortable clothes. And, honestly, that’s what we all need to say goodbye to this year and welcome 2021 with a positive mindset.
To help you decide which gifts to give to the special people in your life (or yourself), we have rounded up 25 options from lifestyle to fashion, and beauty that will fit almost everyone’s needs and personalities.
Best Beauty Self-Care Gifts
Face Mask Duo
Miss having IRL sleepovers with your friends? Gift them this clay mask and papaya oil duo and plan a Zoom DIY face mask date.
A good manicure can be a great pick-me-up when we’re not feeling our best. Since going to the nail salon has been almost impossible these days, an at-home manicure is the way to go but painting our own nails can be messy and stressful for us who lack patience (it me!) That’s where ManiMe comes in, an easy way to have professional-looking nails without the hassle. Your BFF will be impressed!
Body Care Duo
We all have a few Glossier fans on our list. Let them know that you care by giving them the gift they really want: A restock of their favorite Body Hero Duo.
Luxury Beauty Kit
Looking for a cool gift to give your beauty enthusiast friend? La Mer has your back. This travel kit features the essentials to indulge in a much-needed luxury experience.
If you’re looking for unique gifts to blow your friend’s or loved one’s mind, look no further. This Sauna blanket is the ultimate self-care gift as it features multiple benefits, like enhancing the brain’s serotonin levels and detoxifying the body… by just laying down under it. How awesome is that?
Hair Care Set
When it comes to gifting hair products, you can’t go wrong with Briogeo. This hair mask set is everything needed to achieve good hair days (while actually improving your hair’s health.) All of this without having to make a trip to the salon.
Gua Sha Stone
A Gua Sha stone is the best introduction to beauty tools that focus on sculpting. This one from La Gotta features an elegant red color that will impress any of your friends.
It’s hard to find time to disconnect and relax these days while staying home. The solution? Taking a bath. These bath salts infused with menthol and rosemary will make baths something to look forward to during a stressful week.
Best Fashion Self-Care Gifts
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the fashion-obsessed, gift them these cute UGG fluffy slippers that will make their stay-at-home outfits fashionably comfortable.
A great addition to the friend who enjoys an at-home pampering day often is a cotton robe that feels luxurious. Brooklinen’s Super Plush Robe comes in different colors, so you can pick one for each of your friends\
That friend who keeps posting hiking and outdoor yoga photos on their Instagram feed will be impressed by this gift. Not only because it will fit them like a glove but also because it will provide the comfort they need for their next adventure.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses
We have all been spending more time in front of a screen, which has made blue light blocking glasses essential. Your stylish friend will definitely love these retro round ones.
After you have finished your self-care rituals, it’s time to throw on a comfy matching set that will make you feel like you really do have your life put together.
And of course, you can’t forget a pair of comfy socks! Bonus point as they make for a great stocking stuffer.
Best Lifestyle Self-Care Gifts
Perfect for the stylish friend who got really into YouTube workout videos during quarantining.
We all have a friend that picked up either coloring or gardening as their new self-care hobby in the last few months. This book is for both.
You will definitely bring joy to the matcha addict on your list with this kit that features a bamboo whisk to achieve the perfect at-home latte.
Working from home has come with some perks but it has also brought a lot of back pain from stress and bad posture. This Theragun therapy device will be like gifting a personal masseur.
For your design-focused friend, this diffuser from Virtruvi is the perfect gift. While it does a great job making any space feel refreshed with its different scents, it will also look great with almost every décor.
Candles are the gift that keeps on giving! This Boy Smells set includes delicious scents that will lift anyone’s mood every time they are lit up. The best part? Once the candles are done, the cute packaging can be used as a cactus pot or a makeup brush holder.
BOSE Noise Masking Earbuds
Technology can be a reason for our lack of sleep, but it can also help us achieve a restful sleep when nothing else is working. These BOSE Noise masking earbuds are the perfect proof. They come with an array of preprogrammed soothing sounds that will make your night owl friend fall asleep in no time.
Healthy Meal Subscription
It’s easy to just snack the days away. Trust us, we’ve been there. But what you put inside your body is just as important as all the self-care products you put outside. That’s why Sakara’s meal subscription service is ideal for anybody on your list that loves a good, healthy meal but hates making it themselves.
Fun Water Bottle
Drinking more water is in everyone’s New Year’s resolutions. This water bottle will make hydration a thing to be excited about.
Forget virtual hugs, this blanket will do all the hugging for you.
Virtual Workout Classes
If someone from your gifting list is obsessed with virtual workout classes, The Class offers a monthly subscription of unique workouts. The sessions are focused on exercising the body to engage the mind, which is a good therapy to start the new year with the right foot.
