Wellbeing Gift Ideas for Christmas

Wellbeing Gift Ideas for Christmas

After the year we’ve had and with a very different sort of Christmas upon us, we thought it would be the ideal time to treat friends and family to gifts that promote self-care and wellbeing. Take a look at our ideas below for a little gift inspiration.


There are so many brilliant wellbeing books out there but feel-good fiction and cookbooks also make great gifts. Beautifully designed books like Stacie Swift’s You Are Positively Awesome and Meik Wiking’s The Little Book of Hygge make ideal gifts. If you’re posting cards and gifts this year, you could send an Instead of a Card poetry pamphlet which come with an envelope and bookmark with space to write a personal message.

Sleep enhancers

Sleep-related gifts are ideal for those who struggle to get to sleep or simply enjoy a good snooze. Nightware like cosy pyjamas, bed socks and sleep masks make perfect gifts as well as scented candles and pillow sprays. For those who need a bit more help getting some shut-eye, sleep aids like soothing sleep lamps and sound machines might be a good choice.

Make it personal

Personalised gifts like photo albums and photo frames are great gifts, especially if you have the perfect photos to display inside. Other options include personalised photo books and calendars. You can also have items personalised and engraved like jewellery, clothing, mugs, cushions, kitchen accessories – the list is endless.
