The holidays are right around the corner, so now’s the perfect time to start shopping for all of your favorite people. Holiday shopping can be challenging, but if you make a plan, you can find the best gifts in no time. Here are five holiday gift ideas for the person in your life who loves a good pampering session:
1. Spa Day
A trip to the spa is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to be pampered. Treat your friend or family member to a massage, facial, body scrub, or reflexology treatment. Search highly-rated spas in their area, or buy them a gift certificate for their favorite spa. Spa treatments aren’t cheap, but they’ll definitely appreciate your gift!
If a spa trip isn’t in the budget, then bring the spa to them! Put together a “spa basket” with goodies such as body lotion, bath bombs, facial masks, sugar scrubs, and sleep masks. If you want to treat your friend even more, throw in a comfy bathrobe and a pair of fuzzy slippers!
2. Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are super popular right now — thanks to science. Resting with a weighted blanket on top of you can reduce stress, anxiety, and sleep disturbances. You can even fall asleep more quickly when you doze off with one of these blankets. A weighted blanket is a great gift for the person in your life who can never seem to get a restful night or sleep.
If your friend or family member is starting a new nutritional lifestyle, beginning a health journey, give the gift of delicious food! Sometimes keeping up with diet changes can be difficult if you don’t know how to cook for your diet or run into unaccommodating friends. A cookbook with fast, healthy paleo, keto, gluten-free, or vegan meals or a collection of the best juicing recipes can go a long way for a friend who’s settling into a new lifestyle. You can even offer to try out new recipes with them!
If your loved one adores scented items, gift them a nice candle this year. Candles come in so many colors and scents — even unique ones — that you’ll definitely find the perfect match for anyone on your list. You can purchase a pre-packaged candle set with a “theme” for the colors and scents or simply gift individual candles that will make your friend smile. Life for your friends and family will be a lot more relaxing with sweet-smelling candles to enjoy!
5. Noise-Canceling Headphones
If your friend or family member lives in chaos but loves silence, then hook them up with a pair of noise-canceling headphones. Noise-canceling headphones are perfect for parents, pet owners, and people who live in noisy neighborhoods, and they help people from all walks of life relax. Know which type of headphone style (earbud, on ear, or over ear) your friend would like before you buy. When they rediscover the sound of silence, they’ll definitely thank you!
What better way to show you care this holiday season than to pamper your friends? These great gifts will help everyone you know refresh themselves for the new year.
