Christmas Gift Guide: Self-Care Treats

At this time of year, we’ve often spent a lot of time, effort, and money on buying gifts for our loved ones. But have we spared a thought for ourselves?

I’ve put together some ideas for us to treat ourselves this holiday season, particularly focusing on treats that have an element of self-care to them.

The Oodie

Cat Oodie

The Oodie is a huge, one-size-fits-all, oversized hoodie, made from sherpa wool (cruelty-free).

They are incredibly cosy, and really good for curling up on old winter nights.

They come in a variety of different colours and prints and both look and feel super cute.

I have one myself and I could happily live in it!

Scented candles

Scented candles are great for self-care, invoking the senses of sight and smell.

This particular candle is by Yankee, and is called Christmas Magic, and has the Christmassy scent of cinnamon, so is especially good to enjoy during the holiday season.

A cute journal

Moleskine Classic Ruled Paper Notebook - Soft Cover and Elastic Closure Journal - Color Black - X-X- Large 19 x 25 cm - 192 Pages

Journalling is great for self-care, allowing us to offload in a safe and satisfying way.

So, why not treat yourself to a super cute new journal for Christmas?

Although plain, this one is particularly nice – Moleskine journals are great quality with nice thick paper.

Lush ‘Sleepy’ Lotion

The ‘Sleepy‘ lotion by Lush is a must-have for those who struggle to get to sleep at night.

The incredible lavender smell is comforting and sleep-inducing. Just apply to the skin before you get into your pyjamas, and enjoy.

A weighted blanket

I haven’t personally used a weighted blanket before, but they are touted as being wonderful for relieving stress, reducing anxiety, and improving quality of sleep.

They can be expensive, but those I have spoken to about them wouldn’t be without them now, so it might be worth the investment.

A cuddly toy

We spend the majority of our lives ‘adulting’, so why not take a little time to embrace and nurture your inner child with a cuddly toy?

I personally went for a Pinkie Pie plush toy because I am a My Little Pony fan, but you can find all sorts online!

The Self-Care Project Book

This book, written by Jayne Hardy (founder and CEO of The Blurt Foundation), contains some brilliant ideas for how to go about making time for yourself and self-care.

If you’re not sure where to start, this book will help to guide the way.

These are just a few ideas of self-care treats that we can gift to ourselves this holiday season.

Do you have any other ideas? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Love how Hygge this list is. That first one looks amazing – I spend pretty much the entirety of winter under a duvet so really want one of those!
