As I write this, it’s that time of year when we’re all looking for the perfect gifts to give and receive. If you’re looking for something special this Christmas, why not treat yourself or a loved one to the best wellness and self-care gifts?
But any time of the year, these kinds of gifts are a great way to show someone that you care about their well-being and want them to take some time off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Here are some of the best wellness and self-care gifts for women. Some links in this gift guide are affiliate links.
A Relaxing Spa Day Gift Card
Nothing says relaxation quite like a day at the spa. A spa day gift card is an ideal gift for someone who needs a little bit of pampering in their life. You can buy various packages depending on what services they want, from massage therapy to facial treatments.
Most spas also offer private rooms where your recipient can enjoy some peace and quiet after a long day.
At-Home Spa Kit
If your recipient isn’t interested in going out to a spa, why not bring the spa experience right into their home? There are plenty of at-home spa kits available with everything they need to have a relaxing night in, such as taking a bubble bath with bath salts, bath bombs, and essential oils, putting on a face mask, using body scrubs, hand cream, and more.
This $35 bath and body gift basket is a perfect self-care gift for a special occasion or a new mom. (A glass of wine is NOT included.)
This is an easy and affordable way to give someone the ultimate relaxation experience without ever leaving their house!
A Good Book
I’m a big believer that reading is the best form of self-care.
Whether you’re reading, flying, or just want an easy way to peace and quiet, these noise-canceling headphones on Amazon will be your lifesaver. It’s the perfect gift for a parent with young kids. (Trust me.)
Yoga Classes & Equipment
Yoga is a great way to relax the mind and body. If your recipient is already into yoga or wants to get into it, why not get them a few classes or some equipment?
Yoga mats come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so you can find something that suits their style perfectly.
You could even pair it with some comfortable clothing or accessories like yoga blocks or straps.
Reusable Water Bottle
While you’re taking care of yourself, you can take care of the environment with a reusable water bottle. I’ve been using this $13 one from Amazon for years.
This helps me drink all the glasses of water I’m supposed to every day.
Meditation App Subscription
Meditation apps are becoming increasingly popular these days as more people look for ways to take care of their mental health and manage stress levels. Whether your recipient is just getting started with meditation or is already an experienced meditator, gifting them with a subscription to an app like Headspace, Calm, or 10% Happier can help them take their practice further each day.
Plus, many meditation apps also offer audio-guided meditations which make it easier for beginners who may be unsure about how to start meditating on their own.
I always wear socks in my house – even when I sleep. For people who love to be cozy and have their feet covered, try these cozy slippers from Sketchers on Amazon. They’re made out of cable-knit sweater yarn and come in a bunch of different colors.
I love the book The Power of Fun. It inspired me to go back to an elementary school hobby of playing the violin. A great gift could include an introduction to other hobbies like gardening, art, writing, and so much more.

Self-Care Gift Baskets
A care package or self-care gift box is a perfect way to put together a bunch of items. You can include things like
- essential oil diffuser
- beauty products with natural ingredients
- custom wine glass
- herbal tea
- lavender eye pillow
- daily journal or wellness journal
- plush robe
There’s no shortage of options when it comes to finding a thoughtful gift this holiday season! So go ahead – treat yourself (or someone else).
