The Ultimate Self-Care Gift Ideas For  Self Gifting

20 Self-care Gifts For Care And Wellness

1. Journal

Leaders in Heels Stationery to nurture, inspire and empower

Journaling is a great way to keep track of your mental health, that’s why journals are great self-help gifts.

Also, with a journal, you can track your habits, plan your routines, etc.

So it is a perfect gift to include in your self-care gift box.

This is one of my favorites.

What I love most about the Make Your Mark Journal Set is that you can customize it with your initials. Which I think is really cool for self-gifting.

2. Plush Bath Robe

Like I said at the beginning of the post, care gifts should be timeless, and bathrobes are useful all year round.

So if you don’t have or need a new one, add this plush bathrobe to your self-care kit.

Cozy up in this soft bathrobe on self-care day, and give yourself some love.

3. Silk pajamas

Holiday or not, you will always need pajamas, so it is actually a never-changing care gift idea.

And if you’ve been wanting silk pajamas set, now is the time to treat yourself to one.

Also, pajama pants are comfortable to wear with other basic tops to relax at home all day.

4. Footbath

Tell me, who does not enjoy a good old foot soak at home or the spa? Just like getting a manicure at the salon is expensive, so is getting a professional pedicure.

But gifting yourself a foot bath means your self-care day just became more relaxing. Now add that to your self-care gift basket.

5. Press-on nails

Press-on nails are making lots of waves these days, especially as a professional manicure is becoming crazily expensive.

And they have lots of pretty designs to choose from and are also easy to install at home.

So if you’ve been dreaming of a particular nail design, it is almost certain you’d find it in press-on nails.


So go clawing the online stores for beautiful press-on nails to add to your home spa day activity.

6. Moisturizing lotion

Wondering what a moisturizing lotion is doing on this list of self-care gift ideas?

We all know a good old moisturizer is vital for your skin, and brands like Goldbond, CeraVe, etc. have you covered this holiday and year-round.

These moisturizers help build a moisture lock and keeps your skin from drying as the weather gets drier.

7. Flawless facial hair remover

If you haven’t tried the Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover, this is the time to do that.

This cute affordable but expensive-looking device removes facial hair painlessly, and that makes it a meaningful care gift for you.

I have one, and I really love it and think you would too.

See this post about How To Use Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover For Best Results.

8. Smart Watch

Staying fit and keeping track of your fitness is a huge part of health and wellness.

There is a variety of smartwatches you can check out, but I just got this Samsung smartwatch and I love it.

You can easily connect it to your phone and mobile health apps, and monitor everything conveniently.

I track my running workouts, yoga, daily steps, sleep, and even my water intake with my smartwatch.

9. Fragrance

Do you love perfumes? I do. And I’d love to gift myself one whenever I can.

Also, a new fragrance can make you happy, so why not spoil yourself a little by adding one to your care package.

If you want to try new scents, check out the Scent Bird Perfume subscription.

After you subscribe and pick your favorite scents, they would send you one every month.

A LITTLE SECRET: your first perfume purchase comes with a FREE sample perfume.

So check it out!

10. Scented candles

Scented candles are a pretty awesome self-care gift idea for self-gifting.

Lighting a candle can set the mood for a calming yoga session, bath time, or freshen your space.

Asides from the fragrance scented candles expel, they also make a lovely home decoration.

Your little nook just became more beautiful.

11. Oil diffuser

An oil diffuser is a great alternative to scented candles as they come in a variety of fragrances.

You can explore reed diffusers or this air wick oil diffuser I use in my house.

12. Big coffee mugs

If you love coffee or a good cuppa tea in a huge mug, then get one for yourself.

I absolutely love Rae Dunn mugs. While some people collect them as decorations, I prefer to drink tea or coffee with mine.

Anyway, it is up to you what you do with your big mug.

13. Water bottle

Drinking water is a crucial part of health and wellness.

And if you struggle to get in enough water, then add a water bottle to your self-care gift basket.

Now you can get properly hydrated every day.

14. Makeup subscription box

Though I’m not a regular subscriber to makeup monthly subscription boxes, I still understand how useful they can be.

I recently subscribed for the first time to Birchbox and got some amazing products I still use to date.

So try a makeup or skincare subscription box for a month and see how you like it.

You might find a couple of products to add to your skincare routine like face masks, moisturizers, etc.

15. Self-care gift cards

If you’ve been dreaming of gifts to pamper yourself; maybe a spa day or just a mani-pedi session, then a self-care gift card is a great idea.

And depending on how much is on your gift card, you should be able to use it more than once.

16. Sleepy tea

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best gifts for self-care, but unfortunately, some of us don’t sleep enough.

But with the help of a sleepy tea, you can easily fall asleep as soon as your head touches the pillow, and wake up feeling refreshed.

This is my favorite sleepy tea. It comes in several flavors.

17. Bath salts

Soaking in bath salts before bedtime is a great way to unwind and prep yourself for a good night’s sleep.

If you don’t have bath salts in your bathroom, go ahead and add them to your self-love gifts.

18. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy products

Aromatherapy products are good self-care gifts as they contain essential oils that help improve your mood, relieve stress, help you sleep better, etc.

My personal favorites are Bath and Body Works Rose Vanilla (Love), and the Lavender Vanilla (Sleep) aromatherapy fragrances.

I use the Rose one during the day and the Lavender fragrance for my nighttime routine.

19. Jade roller

A jade roller is another great self-care gift idea you can add to your nighttime beauty routine, well for me.

The nights I remember, I massage my face and neck and it helps relieve tightness, de-puff the face and improves blood flow to the skin’s surface.

20. Silk pillowcase

The last but not least item to add to your self-care gifts this holiday season is a silk pillowcase.

It helps protect your hair from breakage and doesn’t strip oils and moisture from your hair. So add it to your self care evening regimen.
