Best Wellness Gifts to Inspire Better Health

Positive Messages in a BottleSelf-care isn’t selfish. In fact, taking care of your physical, mental and spiritual health makes us the best we can be for our loved ones. And because self-care is important for everyone, if you know a person that needs to slow down and relax, a health-conscious gift that can help them do just that is a great idea.

With that in mind, we’ve put together this list of the best wellness gifts in the hopes that it will inspire even the most stressed-out person in your life to take a step back and practice mindfulness — and indulge in some much needed self-pampering. Whether you’re shopping for your parents, hunting down a bargain for your sister or finding something your boyfriend will actually like, there’s a self-care gift here for them. The best way to choose the right gift is to think about what might be causing their stress. If they’re suffering from work-related anxiety, a psychologist-approved gift for people with anxiety, like an essential oil diffuser that won’t disrupt their daily routine, is perfect. When intrusive thoughts won’t allow them to sit still, a meditation gift like a set of mindfulness cards could help. Physical pain (especially in the upper back and neck) can be addressed with an acupressure mat, while journaling is always great for spiritual health, making a wellness diary a smart pick. Or maybe they just need a #SelfCareSunday, which is an easy fix with the right spa day supplies.

Aromatherapy Lavender Heat PillowMESSAGE PILL CO. Positive Messages in a Bottle

The positive messages in this bottle can be prescribed as needed, meaning they can open up a capsule whenever they need a quick pick-me-up! After sticking this pillow filled with flaxseed and lavender buds in the microwave for a minute or two, her space will be filled with a calming herbal scent. But that’s not where the relaxation ends: She can place it on any tight muscles or cramps to feel an instant sense of relief, too. (It can even be chilled in the freezer for cold therapy!)
