Practising gratitude is a wonderful way to look after yourself – as gratitude helps you find happiness. This is my favourite gratitude journal filled with uplifting quotes and a place to write what you are grateful for every day.
2. Prayer Journal
A beautiful way to journal, record scripture, reflect on scripture verses, and record answered prayers.
3. Self Care Journal
Be mindful of daily self-care with this pretty guided daily journal. Track your physical and emotional self-care every day to build a healthy routine.
4. A little Book of Self Care Ideas

Track all-day activity: your steps, distance, hourly activity and calories burned, plus includes a 24/7 heart rate monitor. The perfect gift for someone who needs a little encouragement to get more daily steps in.
7. Food & Exercise Journal
Track your way to a healthy lifestyle with a focus on activity, food and water intake and setting goals.
8. Good Quality Water Bottle
Plastic water bottles have been proven to be unhealthy and are bad for the environment so going with a stainless steel insulated water bottle that is good for hot and cold drinks is perfect for anyone!
9. Healthy Cook Book
A beautiful cookbook full of healthy plant-based recipes.
10. Self Care Subscription Box
Curated by therapists every month to increase happiness and reduce stress. Includes 6 to 8 full-size wellness products (aromatherapy, natural/organic bath, body, skin care products, and other lifestyle goodies).

Classic, non-slip yoga mat with carrier sling.

Self Care Gifts: For a Cozy Nighttime
15. Cozy Pajamas
16. White Noise Machine
This is the noise machine I use and I love it. There are 10 different fan sounds that perfectly replicate a fan in the summertime. This noise machine even relaxes my dog!
17. Cozy Slippers
18. Weighted Blanket
Improve your sleep and reduce stress/anxiety with a weighted blanket. A weighted blanket gives you the sensation of being held which we know is good for us, especially when getting hugs is harder these days.
19. Natural Candles
Candles in the evening are so relaxing. Just make sure to buy candles that are all-natural – otherwise, they can be full of toxins that are harmful to our health. This includes paraffin wax candles.
100% soy and beeswax candles are a good, healthy choice and also burn longer.

Colouring for adults is a great help in relaxing the mind and reducing stress. It also feels good to get creative too.
This is personally my favourite colouring book. So much detail and beautiful scenes.

22. Bath Balms
All-natural and no stains with these relaxing, moisturizing bath balms.
Many tea options available: subscription boxes, gift boxes and a variety of high-quality teas.
24. Foot Massager
My husband bought me one of these a few Christmas’s ago and I laughed as I thought I’d never use it. Well, I was wrong! I’m in love with my foot massager. Helps with foot pain but it also extremely relaxing.
25. Electric Blanket
This is the perfect gift if you and your spouse fight over the thermostat. Give this to the cold person in the house and then turn that thermostat down!
