8 Inexpensive Gift Ideas for Self-Care

The act of self-care varies from person to person. What may work for you, may not work for your neighbor. And that’s okay! No matter how you practice it, simply taking the time to stop and show yourself some love is valuable and necessary. It’s what nourishes us from the inside out. It’s what refuels us. It’s what allows us to pour into others. So, in honor of the holiday season, we’ve pulled together a simple gift guide that will help you help the women in your life honor themselves more. They (or you) deserve this splurge! These are a few of our favorite self-care essentials we wouldn’t mind seeing under the tree:

A weighted blanket

Studies have shown that weighted blankets can not only induce more restful sleep, but that they can also be beneficial for reducing stress and anxiety. This is because the added pressure increases serotonin. The end result is what feels like a warm, never-ending hug.

A journal

The gift of mindfulness is a thoughtful one (no pun intended). Encourage your loved ones to develop a deeper, more understanding relationship with themselves through the relaxing act of journaling. Or simply provide them a better way to keep their to-do list or grocery list in check!

A bath towel set

An unexpected luxury, a plush set of towels may be a great way to remind friends or family to indulge in caring for themselves a little more often. Include a bath bomb or bath fizz to help them bring on the bubbly! 

A wellness subscription box

Allow your loved ones to dabble in a handful of &Sunny CBD goodies that exfoliate, moisturize, and glow-up the body and spirit. This self-care collection comes bundled with a hemp-infused Whipped Sugar Scrub, Hydrating Goat’s Milk Soap, Peppermint Lip Balm, Intense Moisturizing Crème and Aromatherapy Bath Soak.

A bouquet of flowers

Flowers have the ability to instantly brighten and transform any room and uplift any mood. An arrangement is a simple, yet wonderful gesture and also serves as great décor for holiday parties and get-togethers.

A Headspace subscription

Meditation can have some life-changing benefits. But getting into it isn’t always easy. Gift your loved ones with a one-year subscription to an app like Headspace to give them the nudge they need to dive in.

A fresh set of PJs

There’s no better feeling than slipping into pajamas or sweats after a long hard day. A silk pair? Luxe-lounging at its finest (and most stylish)! Throw in some slippers and an eye mask for the ultimate sleep set!

A book-of-the-month membership

Everyone has a friend or family member that wants to read more. It’s on all of our bucket lists, right? Help them take out the guesswork of finding the next best read and have fan-favorite novels delivered straight to their door!

"I created &Sunny because I was intimidated by many of the products out there. I believe women's wellness should be simple - most of our base ingredients can be found in your home pantry."
