We are just a few days away from Christmas so if you still have shopping to do, you’d better hurry! If you are still torn about what gifts to give, let me make a suggestion. How about giving the gift of self-care? I know, you can’t really give self-care per se, but you can give gifts that encourage self-care! I’m going to share with you some of my favorite Amazon finds that encourage and promote self-care. I’m going to call it my holiday gift guide: self-care edition!

Eccolo Writing Journal
I love these Eccolo Writing Journals. Writing is extremely therapeutic for me and I’ve read that so many professionals agree that journaling is an excellent way to unwind and clear your mind. This is the perfect gift for someone who needs to relax or simply enjoys writing or doodling. These come in several different colors and prints!
Some of my other favorite journals are Promptly Journals and BeRooted Journals.
Candles send the universal message of relaxation! I especially like the wood wicked candles that crackle when you burn them. They are excellent for when you’re able to sneak a quiet moment away to relax and meditate.
I’ve recently learned that I like hot teas. I love trying new ones. I’ve also learned that drinking a glass of tea before retiring for the evening helps me to get to dreamland a little bit faster! This variety pack is excellent for the tea lover in your life!
The moment I step foot into the house, I ditch my high heels for slippers. These Ugg slippers have been on almost every must-have Christmas gift guide that I’ve seen this season, so I thought I might as well add them to my gift guide, too. I don’t have these, but I just may have to get a pair so that I can see what all the hoopla is all about!
I have wanted one of these since Whitley Gilbert donned them at Hillman on “A Different World”! I have no clue why I’ve never purchased one! Let me get over here and order one for myself right now! Ha! Seriously though, these seem like the perfect self-care gift! Who couldn’t use a good night’s sleep?
Essential Oil Diffuser
Essential oils have gotten really popular and I must say that I absolutely love my essential oil diffuser. There are so many suggestions for the best mix of oils for maxim relaxation and I’m pretty sure I’ve tried them all. During this time of social distancing, what better way to bring the spa experience into your home than by diffusing essential oils! This is an excellent self-care gift to give and to receive!
Speaking of the spa, a spa robe is my final self-care gift idea. This robe just screams “relax” when you look at it! The recipient would definitely know the intents and purposes of this great gift!
Well, there you have it. My holiday gift guide! The holidays are a great time for you (or those on your gift list) to do some self-care. These gifts are great tools to help you get started. These are just a few of my favorite self-care gifts. What would you add to this list? Leave your suggestions in the comments!
