Self-care gifts have always been relevant, but since wellness became a priority in 2020, as the pandemic and other global troubles made adjustments to the perception of life itself. In addition to physical health, we began to pay attention to the importance of mental health, monitoring the quality of relationships with people, connecting with nature and ourselves.
With the year winding down it is time to treat yourself, actually any time is good for adequate self-care. Treating yourself seems indispensable this year, and I’d like to concentrate more on the stuff that is used specifically by you or brings you immense pleasure.
Treat Yourself: Beautiful and Fragrant Candles
For me, the interior decor is a pure pleasure, so my self-care gifts often include interior-related items. Though, some of them like candles are both functional for self-care and for the interior.
We often think too much on what to gift to others and abandon our own desires in order to be good to someone else.
Self-care Gifts: Meditation
This year my list of self-care gifts is filled with things that make me feel good. I reinvented comfy clothes, natural fabrics, and personal comfort for myself. I reinvented yoga and meditation for myself, which became a pillar for my physical health, so it is reflected in the self-care gifts.
Close to Skin: Gifts for the Body
I will share my list of simple comforts and self care gifts. I didn’t want to buy any clothing, only pajamas made of linen because the natural fabric is breathable and I spend a lot of time in my pajamas. Self care gifts should not contribute to mindless consumption, they are directed on serving the purpose of making you feel better inside like mantras or meditation-related products, or outside like skincare, jewelry, cashmere blankets.
I’ve never valued the comfort of my home as much, as this year and self-care has become synonymous with my home, interior, family, and being grounded.
Gifts to Spoil Your Skin
As for my skincare, I’ve loved Aesop this year a lot, as well as La Mer. I don’t have a lot of skincare products, but the ones I own work out perfectly for me.
