LSW Mind Cards
Created to promote daily mindfulness habits, LSW London’s Mind Cards are not just a beautifully designed set of cards. Each one contains a daily prompt for a moment of reflection, gratitude, kindness and rituals, aimed at positively impacting mental health, wellbeing and self care. The classic set contains 45 cards, and there are also additional sets specifically aimed at journalling, new mums and also a kids edition. At just £9.99 this is both a thoughtful and affordable gift idea.
Eco Friendly Volcanic Rock Diffuser
Aromatherapy gifts are a great choice, as essential oils have a number of wellness benefits, helping to relax or invigorate you. Why not consider an eco-friendly essential oil diffuser, such as Volcanic Potpourri – the lava rock essential oil diffuser from Boostology. This diffuser contains natural porous Lava & Obsidian rocks which soak up drops of essential oils and slowly release the aroma. Not only is this reusable diffuser environmentally friendly, lava and obsidian stones are also often used to provide strength & positivity.
Clear Quartz Crystal Necklace Greetings Card
Another very affordable gift, this lovely clear quartz necklace comes presented on a greetings card and is just £10. The necklace features a semi-precious clear quartz crystal, which is known for amplifying energy and enhancing mental clarity. It is also thought to have many energetic benefits, help with emotional stability and is often used in manifestation to create focus and clarity on a particular goal or desire.
Organic Cotton Pyjamas
There’s nothing nicer than receiving a cute or stylish pair of pyjamas as a gift. And what makes them even better is when they are made from the softest fabrics, such as the organic cotton range from Chelsea Peers. Luxurious organic cotton nightwear is the gift of unrivalled comfort, perfect for cosy nights in and slow weekend mornings.
Gift Cards for Salon Treatments
A relaxing massage, skincare treatment or self care beauty treat is a gift nearly all of us would be very grateful to receive. And a very easy way of giving this gift is with a Treatwell gift card. Treatwell is the app/online booking service used by thousands of salons and spas across the UK, and gift card can be used for a choice of a whole range of self care treats and a choice of locations.
Organic Luxury Skincare
Luxurious skincare products are another great gift idea. Who wouldn’t want to receive a gorgeous new face cream or serum? Not only is it a nice item to receive, but it also encourages the recipient to dedicate a little time every day to self care by indulging in their daily skincare routine. I love discovering new independent beauty brands, such as Evolve Organic Beauty, whose natural and organic beauty range is affordable, beautiful and eco-friendly. They believe that organic ingredients are better for the soil as well as better for you and your skin, and they sell the loveliest skincare bundles which make great gifts.
This soft heated throw is one of my recent favourite purchases and I think it would be a lovely gift for the colder months! It’s made from soft, cosy fleece, and has 3 heat seatings so that you can make your evenings on the sofa extra warm and cosy.
Bamboo Bath Caddy Tray
Bath time is the ultimate time for relaxation and self care after a long or stressful day. And an over-bath tray such as this extendable bamboo bath caddy is the perfect way to enhance that time with a glass of wine, a scented candle and a book or romantic film to unwind with.
Gemstone Bracelet Bath Bomb
A quirky 2-in-1 wellness gift, these gemstone bracelet bath bombs are nourishing and fragranced for a luxurious and relaxing bath time. And in their centre they also contain a pretty gemstone chip bracelet. Choose from Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Tiger Eye, Aventurine , Sodalite and White Jasper, based on either the aroma of the bath bomb, or by the unique physical and spiritual properties of the gemstones.
