It’s a nice gesture to shower a friend or family member with love, appreciation, and self-care gifts during the holidays, but it’s equally important to honor and celebrate yourself. Self-care looks different for everyone: Some days, it’s as simple as taking your medications and changing your undies. Setting aside even a few minutes for your well-being is essential, especially during a busy holiday season.
Though luxurious face masks and ice cream are tried-and-true self-soothers, they’re not the only gifts worth receiving this year. To help you hit pause and indulge in some R&R this Christmas and holiday season, we’ve rounded up a few delightful wellness necessities. From fluffy house slippers to noise-canceling headphones, fuzzy bathrobes and buttery soft loungewear to muscle-soothing massage guns—here are creative self-care gifts to give the most deserving person on your list this holiday season: you. You’ll find thoughtful gift ideas from Nordstrom, Amazon, Sephora, Dyson, Brooklinen, and more.
If these are gifts for the holiday, we recommend ordering these goodies ASAP as we close in on Christmas—though treating yourself on any random day is perhaps the best form of self-care. Just saying.
