I love reading these, so I thought I’d make my own. All of these are self-love / self-care themed gifts that I genuinely love and think you all will too!
Some of my favorites:
“The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brené Brown
“The Essential Rumi, New Expanded Edition” by Rumi
“The Princess Saves Herself in this One” by Amanda Lovelace
“Shifting Bone” by Alison Malee
“Yoga and the Quest for the True Self” by Stephen Cope
“Present over Perfect” by Shauna Niequist
“Milk and Honey” and “The Sun and her Flowers” by Rupi Kaur
Crystals are so healing and can definitely help in deepening your spiritual practice. Some of my favorites:
Amethyst: relaxing, helps with anxiety and day-to-day stressors
Lapis Lazuli: aids in living your truth, opening the throat chakra, tuning in with your intuition
Black Tourmaline: associated with protection and staying grounded
Turquoise: calming energy and emotional balance
Selenite: removes negative energy and anxiety
I get mine from Poshmark, Etsy, or local stores!
Essential Oil Diffuser
They have these on Amazon and a bunch of different stores now. I got mine from GNC!
Some of my favorites:
Doing facials is one of my favorite forms of self-care. Some of my favorite (and inexpensive) facials:
Yes To Tomatoes Charcoal Mud Mask
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Detox Sheet Mask
Fré Purify Me Facial Cleanser. This is on the more expensive side, but I love this company because for every skincare set you buy, an Argan tree will be planted to help replenish the Argan forest and support women who harvest Argan oil in Morocco. So cool. : )
You all know how healing I think yoga is… so obviously I had to include a yoga mat on this list. I got mine from Gaiam for a cheap price. I also got my yoga towel from this brand too!
Journaling is such a soothing activity for me, and is something I always tell people to start doing.
Etsy has recycled journals and notebooks.
I love making time to sit down and have a cup of hot tea. My favorite kinds are peppermint, passion, chai, pumpkin, and green tea.
Lighting candles in the winter and bringing more light, as well as a good scent, helps me cope with the shorter days and the fact that the sun sets around 4:00 pm.
Himalayan Salt Lamp
These do so many beneficial things. Not only do they look cool, but they also cleanse the air, improves the quality of sleep, enhance your mood, and lessen symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.
Hope this gift guide gives you all some good ideas for the Holiday Season. All of these things I truly do LOVE and have helped me a lot in my own life!
Have you read any of those books?
Any book recommendations?
Do you use essential oils?
Happiest of Monday’s friends!
