Oh and they’re all under £50 too…
For Those Needing Time Out
Joy Wellness Journal, £26
Let them get 2023 off to a more mindful start with this daily wellness journal where they can set their intentions, jot down thoughts and feelings and reflect on what they’re grateful for. It’s one of the best ways to instil positivity and have a better outlook on things plus it also encourages them to set asides a few minutes each day for themselves.
For Achy Bodies & Stressed-Out Souls
Yogi Bare Black Acupressure Set, £39.50
If you’re on the hunt for a unique gift, then look no further than this foldaway acupressure mat. Not only does it help to promote a better sense of wellbeing by boosting circulation, relieving aches and pains, restoring the body’s energy AND releasing endorphins, reviewers have even mentioned how it’s good for helping with sleep too.
For Those In Need Of A Little Pick Me Up
Aery Living Positive Energy Scented Candle, £27
Candles can be a bit samey, but this one is a little different. We especially love this ‘Positive Energy’ candle from Aery Living because it's infused with an uplifting blend of pink grapefruit, vetiver and mint, and it works wonders for sparking good vibes whilst also boosting their energy levels too. They’re made in the UK with 100% plant-based wax.
For The Skincare Fanatic
Farmacy Beauty Healthy Skin Starter Kit, £38
Renowned for their sustainable and results-driven skincare line, Farmacy Beauty boasts an impressive collection of products, and this 4-step kit is the perfect introduction. With a cleansing balm, exfoliating toner, moisturiser and night serum, this is a wise gift for helping them to kickstart a new regime. There’s also no going wrong as it’s well-suited to all skin types thanks to their super clean formulas which use only natural ingredients.
For Those Who Struggle To Get Up In The Mornings
Lumie Sunrise Alarm Wake Up To Daylight Table Lamp, £49.99
If they’re forever pressing snooze and need a helping hand first thing, this Lumie lamp will be a guaranteed hit. It uses light to mimic a sunrise, gradually brightening in the 30 minutes leading up to their alarm which helps them to wake naturally – particularly good for dark, winter mornings. This is the gift they never knew they needed.
For The One Craving Better Sleep
The Spectacular Sleep Heroes
Talking of sleep, give the gift of a more restful night thanks to this set from British brand NEOM Organics which features their bestselling Bath Foam and Pillow Mist. Both have been blended with 100% natural essential oils which help to have a relaxing effect on both the mind and body. If they find it difficult to switch off at the end of the day, using these two as part of their nightly routine should do the trick.
For The Drinks Lover
Three Spirit Nightcap, £24.99
Are they teetotal? Planning to embark on Dry January? Or perhaps just on the lookout for a non-alcoholic drink option? These award-winning botanical elixirs (which FYI, are all vegan and ethically sourced) will be a definite hit. Created by plant scientists and bartenders, they’ve been designed for both flavour and function. Our favourite? Nightcap – made with relaxing lemon balm, stress-busting ashwagandha and comforting willow bark, it’s slightly woody and spicy in taste but brings a calm, dreamy feeling.
For The Mum-To-Be… Or New Mum
Neal’s Yard Remedies Mother & Baby Collection, £45
Forgive us for doing another gift set but this one is great value and such a a lovely gift for a new Mum. Whether they’re soon expecting or are new to motherhood, this beautiful set will most certainly be well-received by anyone wanting a bit of (realistic) self-care. Featuring a balm, massage oil and bath oil for Mum and a balm, baby oil and bath and shampoo for baby, it brings a little moment of calm amongst the chaos and makes bath time something to look forward to.
For The House Plant Enthusiast (Or Novice)
Plantsmith Houseplant Gift Set, £29.99
Whether they’re a seasoned indoor gardener or perhaps new to the scene, this duo makes caring for your indoor friends a doddle. Welcoming the Feed & Tonic and Perfecting Care Mist, both are overflowing with essential nutrients to guarantee happy and healthy houseplants in just a few sprtizes (is that a word? is it now!). They make leaves SUPER shiny and look really healthy. Perfectly packaged, this one’s ready to gift right away... admittedly for someone who has some time on their hands!
For The Book Worm
The Female Factor book by Dr Hazel Wallace, £15.99
We love an educational read and this recent release from Dr Hazel Wallace is overflowing with practical advice and insightful information on women’s health. From nutrition and movement to mood and sleep, it helps you to understand your wellbeing, hormones, and body a whole lot better. There are even 50 delicious recipes for some new year meal inspo too.
ORThe Natural Menopause Method: A nutritional guide to perimenopause and beyond, £11.99
If you're looking for something peri-Menopause specific for a person in your life who might need it, Karen's new book is a goldmine for anyone wanting evidence based help with how their diet and lifestyle can influence them at this stage of life. Plus, it looks so pretty on your nightstand or bookshelf!
