Self care has taken on new meaning during these stressful times. We’ve all been spending a lot more time inside — but this doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. Give yourself the opportunity to slow down and do things you wouldn’t normally do when you have free time, like finally cracking open that book, pouring in half a bottle of bubble bath or even downloading meditating apps on your phone. No matter what month it is, self care is always in season, especially when it comes to treating those you love (or yourself) with special gifts.
What a great way to kick off this list! Your shuteye may be suffering right now (you’re not alone in that), and this “Sleep Comes Easy” set from Uncommon Goods will hopefully help. Everything is made with essential oils including lavender, frankincense and chamomile — and even better, it’s all handmade in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I can already feel myself relaxing.
Stepping out of the shower and into a fuzzy robe is always a wonderful experience. This one from Brooklinen is extra thick for spa-like comfort and features 100% Turkish cotton. It’s the perfect addition to your growing collection of loungewear.
Made for every skin type, The Ritual of Sakura Body Scrub has sugar and softening oils to gently exfoliate and leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed. Key ingredients include cherry blossom and rice milk along with vitamin E, an antioxidant used to reduce damage from UV rays and inflammation.
Leopard print looks good on anything and everything – change my mind. Use this set when you want to prepare for your next Zoom call or simply to treat yourself to a mini spa night (you 100% deserve it). It includes a makeup headband, body polisher, shower cap and makeup removing cloths.
Who doesn’t savor sipping a glass of delicious Merlot in the tub while the new Taylor Swift album plays in the background? This clever holder suctions to your bathroom wall so you can enjoy your wine and have a convenient spot to put it.
Silk pajamas are the go-to sleepwear for nights. This pair from Lonxu is inclusive of different body types, with sizes XS – 3XL, and comes in a variety of appealing shades. It has an elastic waist with a drawstring so you choose your comfort level. And guys, we haven’t forgotten about you – this silk set made for men has hundreds of five-star reviews.
Give your space a fresh makeover with this set of five faux vines. Each is six and a half feet long and can easily be hung from the ceiling or arranged around potted plants to create your own personal eden.
I know, I know, you’re probably sick of hearing about essential oils, but hear me out! This diffuser has a handy remote control so you can easily turn it on and off, change colors, choose the mist mode and even set a timer. It will also shut off automatically when time is up, it overheats or the water runs out, protecting both you and your device.
No self care list is complete without a classic candle thrown in the mix. Everlane’s Cozy Cabin Candle gives you all the winter vibes without having to leave your home. With cedar, patchouli, vetiver and 100% natural coconut wax, you’ll enjoy every minute of the 55-hour burn time. Yes please.
