Filling my space with things that make my home feel like a spa is what I live for. It's something that I've been doing for years now and it's so important to me, especially during the hectic holiday season.
It's no question that the holidays can be a crazy time of year. Finding time to de-stress and pamper yourself becomes even more crucial. So this year, I am sharing my first 'Wellness' holiday gift guide, talking all things spa like and the gifts that speak to me (and my soul!)
If you know someone who needs a little more zen in their life (let's face it, we all do) then this gift guide is for you!
I currently have an amazon order of hot stones en route and I am seriously so excited!! Hot stones are incredibly soothing and are a great way to bring a massage to a whole new level.
Some amazing benefits of hot stones:
- helps relieve chronic pain!
- reduces stress and anxiety!
- improves circulation + blood flow!
This could be a great gift idea for anyone, including a lover!
Because how relaxing & romantic is a hot stone massage??
Diffuser + Essential oils
Diffusers are probably the number one thing in my home that truly transport me straight into a spa.
They are easy to use, soothing and honestly, really fun! Diffusers are also such great gifts because you can continue to grow your essential oil collection, which is basically the epitome of pamper.
It is seriously so fun collecting different oils and choosing which one to diffuse, depending on my mood!
Remember that diffusers can really vary in price and quality- I have found that spending a little more on a quality made diffuser can help you go longer in between each use + stay clean longer!
A little pamper beauty basket
Products are the bread and butter to any 'diy' spa day. Massage oil, an exfoliating body scrub, rose water, and a soft towel for steaming...
ok, I am feeling more relaxed just writing this.
You can find beautiful gift baskets (like this one here) ranging widely in size and price to create a beauty gift basket completely personalized by you.
Other product ideas that could be included in the basket:
- mani-pedi kit!
- bubble bath or bath bomb!
- face mask!
- eye mask!
- essential oils!
Candles + Incense sticks
When am I not burning candles or incense?
The answer is never.
Candles and incense are another one of those staples that are totally necessary in making your space feel more zen, and are always a fun gift idea!
You could hunt down a super cute incense holder (like this one here) and pick out a couple selections of different scents to gift to a friend. I've seen anything and everything from, lavender and jasmine, to 'stress release' and 'energy'!
p.s. sandalwood is my fave.
Also, if you're not sure about incense- candles are of course a super low maintenance, and totally spa like, option!
A good book
And last but most definitely not least, I think throwing in Rupi Kaur's "The Sun and her flowers" is the perfect cherry on top to a gift full of wellness and love.
Hope you guys love this gift guide and let me know if you have any questions!
Happy Holidays, loves!!
