The idea for the fifth and final installment in this year’s Holiday Gift Guide comes to us from my wonderful friend Claire!! She suggested a soothing round-up of self-care gifts and…what was my first thought when I saw said suggestion??
“Why, yessss!!! Isn’t that the one thing that everybody needs right about now?”
It’s so true, isn’t it? I don’t know if it’s just because it’s the end of the year and winter is making everything dark and gloomy, but I’m feeling the ever-growing need to just hunker down at home — with my adorable cats, of course! And like I’m always telling my mom, there’s nothing wrong with taking some time to rest and recharge those batteries! To calm your mind, body, soul and spirit! To…just…be.
Ahhh, sounds so calming and peaceful, doesn’t it??? To encourage your loved ones to take a little R&R over the holiday break, here are eight self-care finds that might entice them, starting with some crystal bar soaps (prices vary) to bring some healing energy to shower time…
A meditation kit to begin the path to zen, $58.80
These gemstone-adorned reusable straws for a new, futuristic hydrating experience, $40
Two words: Quilted slippers, $39 (need I say more??)
This winter solstice candle for warming those cold nights, $12.60
A personalized journal for jotting down life’s joys — and fear and dreams and…everything, $13.50
Some mini succulents to brighten any space — and mind, $25
And, of course I saved the best for last…four pretty crystals in a pretty box for keeping the energy flowing all year long, $30
Here’s to feeling calm and relaxed, friends!!! Maybe you even found something that speaks to you to among these treasures… xoxo
