Choosing a gift for a loved one can be kind of tricky. There are so many different gift ideas, and it can be impossible to choose just one! If you have a loved one who is feeling frazzled or stressed, giving them the gift of self-care can do so much more than brighten their day! If you need a great gift idea, here are 12 days of self-care gifts you can give to that special person in your life!
If you are looking for a gift that will help that special someone sleep a little better and relax, consider a weighted blanket! Weighted blankets have been shown to ease insomnia, help reduce anxiety, improve focus, fight against stress, and even improve your quality of sleep.
There is nothing quite as relaxing as a day at the spa! Even just a thirty-minute massage can help that special someone relax and unwind for a few minutes.
If you aren’t familiar with reflexology, it’s a type of massage that focuses on relieving tension and even can be used to treat illnesses. The main points are on the feet, head, and hands, which link to all the other parts of the body. A treatment of reflexology can help you relax, eliminate toxins from the body, and even help boost your energy levels.
If you know someone who spends a lot of time indoors, consider gifting them a Happy Lamp. The Happy Lamp works by emulating daylight without exposing you to harmful UV rays of the sun. This light can help improve your mood, energy, and concentration.
