The holidays are a little over a month away, which means most of us are trying to solidify the perfect gift for everyone we love. Gift giving can be as fun as it is stressful, and here at Allure, we’ve got you covered with our extensive holiday gift guides. That said, we’re taking that holiday stress head-on with the best self-care gift ideas that will bring smiles and relaxation to your loved ones.
It’s an understatement to say that we all need some extra self-love in our lives given how rough these last few years have been. And now that the sun is setting earlier, that dreariness can increase tenfold, and taking care of your mental health becomes even more important. In response, Allure editors are investing in all the things that can help us unwind while keeping the cold and seasonal depression at bay.
For some of us, a hot cup of cocoa full of marshmallows does the trick, while the rest of us may want something a little more substantial, like the YnM Weighted Blanket for warmth and a good night’s sleep. Have a friend that adores a bubble bath? Consider gifting them Alo Mindful Magnesium Bath Soak that will blow their bath salts away. A relaxation gift that promotes chilling out is a perfect way to spread the holiday cheer, even for the most stressed-out person you know.
Whats more: gifting a little serenity doesn’t require you to search the ends of the earth or empty out your life savings. You may not be able to book them a spa day, but you can give them the next best thing with these gift sets and best-sellers. Here, enjoy these 28 gift ideas that will excite your friends, your Secret Santa, or yourself — the “self” in self-care isn’t there for no reason.
