Looking for a way to show your love this holiday season? This is an excellent goal to have year-round, but in the chaos of Christmas time, it can become hard. So how do you find time to display your love?
The answer is as simple and heartfelt as a self-care gift. Seriously, nothing shows your love better than a small reminder to sit back, relax, and breathe. Your friends and family will thank you later.
Curious about the best self-care Christmas gift ideas for this holiday season? You've come to the right place; your guide to the most relaxing gifts is right below.
If your recipient is notably stressed or sleep-deprived an aromatherapy themed gift would benefit them greatly. Aromatherapy is the use of oils and blends to promote healing and wellness. These oils can be used in multiple ways, but the most common include diffusing and rubbing them into certain parts of the body.
If your loved one is new to essential oils and aromatherapy, gifting them a diffuser and oils would be a great starting place for them. Diffusers disperse the oils into the air, creating a calming and healing environment. You could also opt for bracelets, candles, or bath products laced with certain oils if your loved one would prefer this.
Aromatherapy is also a great option for those suffering from Arthritis or Cancer. The non-medicinal blends can help with the painful side effects of these conditions.
2. Skin Care
Skincare products are great Christmas gift ideas for friends looking to up their overall self-care routine. Makeup lovers or friends suffering from acne would benefit from a refreshing face mask. These come in many formulas and can target dry skin, scars, dirt, etc.).
If you're unsure of the formula they need, purchase a few and let them decide. This will help them find their own preferences and introduce them to the facial care world. Their new facemask will also require your friend to sit back and take 15 minutes to care for themself, something they may never do otherwise.
Body butter is another skincare great option you can gift your friend. These are moisturizing creams that smell heavenly. This can be a great gift for a chronically dry-skinned friend, or it can accompany a few of those face masks under the tree.
Candles are one of the most common and refreshing self-care items out there. They can set the mood, give one's home a new smell, and are great decorations. This is why if you have a friend with little time and a need for self-care, candles are the gift for them.
Your loved one can take it to the office and light it during work or they could set a few tea lights at the edge of their bathtub for a brief moment of peace. However they choose to use it, each light of their candle is an act of self-care. You can even spice of their new candle with a cute note or set of matches if you're up for it.
Believe it or not, even your spiritual friends need a little self-care help from time to time. If this may be the case for your's, gift them with some new incense. This is an aromatic stick that produces a certain smell when burnt.
Incense sticks come in all colours but the most common is sage, known for removing negative energy. If you aren't familiar with your loved one's preferred stick, try to find a new dish or ash catcher for them instead. These tend to get dirty and need to be replaced fairly often.
5. Bath/Shower Bombs
For many of your friends and family members, bath time is the only time they can get. A bath bomb set is a perfect reminder for them to take a second and make the most out of their time in the tub. Instead of rushing, their new fizzing friend will help them stop, soak, and breathe.
If your friend is not keen on bathtubs, they can still make the best of their shower with a set of shower steamers. These are bath bombs designed specifically for your shower-crazy friends. All they need to do is set the steamer at the base of their shower and watch the self-care magic happen.
6. Men's Grooming Supplies
Men deserve self-care too and that is exactly what you can give them through new grooming supplies. They may not be as bubbly as others, but the men in your life will thank you for the newest addition to their grooming routine. If you don't know exactly what to gift them, look at their face.
Bearded fellows may benefit from a new beard oil or comb and clean-shaven ones would love a fresh shaving soap or brush. Whatever you gift them will be a greatly appreciated reminder that self-care is something they can practice too.
