The holidays are almost here, which means we’re stressing to find the perfect gifts for everyone. That’s where the best self-care gifts come in to bring smiles and relaxation to your loved ones — and you, the generous gift-giver.
Now that the sun is setting earlier, any dreariness you might be experiencing can increase tenfold, and taking care of your mental health becomes even more important. In response, Allure editors are investing in all the things that can help us unwind while keeping the cold and seasonal depression at bay. For some of us, a hot cup of cocoa full of marshmallows does the trick, while the rest of us may want something a little more substantial, like the YnM Weighted Blanket for warmth and a good night’s sleep. Have a friend who adores a bath? Consider gifting them Kate McLeod The Pebble Solid Bath & Shower Oils that will blow their bath salts away. A relaxation gift that promotes chilling out is a perfect way to spread the holiday cheer, even for the most stressed-out person you know.
