DenaNovember 28, 2022

I hope you have enjoyed my holiday gift guides so far. It has been a joy sharing all of the things that our family has cherished over the years. Today, I am going to share a different kind of guide, one that includes some ideas for a gift for yourself.

While the holidays are a time for giving, and we tend to think about others when shopping for gifts, we have to remember ourselves. The holidays can be stressful and self-care is so important at this time of year. There are many gifts that you can give yourself that can bring you joy, health and peace during this festive season.

Here are a few of my favorite gifts for ourselves. Whether you are looking for something luxurious or something fun and quirky, I have you covered! While some of these gifts are material, there are also ideas for experiences. Read on to find the perfect gift for yourself this holiday season.

1.Birthstone Bracelet
A birthstone bracelet is a great way to show off your personal style and add some sparkle to any outfit. It’s also the perfect holiday gift for yourself. There are so many different options, from a simple birthstone bracelet with just one stone to more elaborate bracelets with multiple colored stones. You can find something that fits your budget and is special to you. I also love the idea of getting your children’s birthstones as well, so precious.

2. Spa Day
Treat yourself to a day of relaxation at a local spa this holiday season. Whether you want a massage, facial, or mani-pedi – there are plenty of places offering indulgent services that will have you feeling refreshed and renewed. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to take some time for yourself during the hectic holiday season.

3. A Cozy Mug
A cozy or personalized mug is a great way to show off your unique style and add some fun personality to your morning tea or coffee. You can find mugs with quotes, photos, or anything else that you like. My favorite mugs are the big cozy ones. They just add something special to my morning tea routine. There’s nothing like a warm mug full of steaming tea and a soft blanket. Swoon.

4. Fancy Teas and Tea Sets
If you are a fan of tea, like I am!, then consider treating yourself to a fancy tea set this Christmas. There are so many different styles and designs available – from traditional ceramic sets to modern glass sets and even copper kettles. Pick one that speaks to your personal style and enjoy some luxurious afternoons sipping on your favorite teas.

5. Art Prints
Art is a great way to express yourself and make your home feel inviting. Whether you love abstract art or something more traditional, there are plenty of options. Consider framing an artist’s print or getting creative and painting your own. Either way, it’s the perfect gift for the holiday season that will stay with you all year long.

6. Luxury Candle
Nothing says luxury and relaxation quite like a quality candle. Whether you choose something scented or unscented, it will be sure to set the mood for your holiday season. Plus, if you get one in glass, it can double as décor when it isn’t being burned. Make sure you choose non-toxic. I love simple beewax candles, scented with a bit of essential oil.

7. Home Cooked Meal
If you’re looking for something a bit more practical, consider treating yourself to a home-cooked meal this holiday season. Whether it’s cooking up your favorite dish or trying something new, the experience will be sure to leave you feeling satisfied and nourished. Plus, spending some time in the kitchen, taking care of yourself for a change, is a great way to de-stress and relax.

8. Personalized Gift Basket
If you want to give yourself something extra special this holiday season, consider putting together a personalized gift basket. You can include items like chocolates, bubble bath, hand cream, or anything else that you love. It makes for a great present and the perfect way to show yourself some extra love during the holidays.

9.  Yoga Classes
If you’re looking for something to help keep your stress levels in check, consider signing up for yoga classes this holiday season. Not only is it a great way to stay active and healthy, but it will also give you some much-needed time to yourself. Plus, there are tons of online options so you can practice from the comfort of your own home.

10. A Trip
Finally, if you’re feeling adventurous, consider treating yourself to a trip this holiday season. It doesn’t have to be somewhere far away – it could even just be a weekend getaway nearby or a day trip to explore somewhere new. Taking time for yourself and exploring something new will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.  Additionally, it’s the perfect way to make sure you don’t forget about yourself during the holiday season.

These are just a few of my favorite gift ideas for yourself this holiday season. No matter what kind of present you choose, make sure to take some time to treat yourself during this busy time of year. Whether you splurge on something luxurious or opt for something more budget-friendly – don’t forget about yourself when you are out shopping for gifts this Christmas.
