Let’s be real, everyone could use some extra self-care. And since that looks a little different for everyone, we rounded up various options—from indulgent beauty buys to cozy loungewear and weighted blankets to subscription services—so that there’s something to meet the needs of everyone.
Scroll on for our specially-curated collection of self-care gifts that’ll put a smile on any woman’s face.
#1 Nurture by Nature Relax & Calm Spa Bath Set ($30)
Complete with six full-size items, Nurture by Nature is the perfect self-care gift for a woman you love. Made with luxury ingredients that are cruelty free, there is a noticeable difference from other products. Each set includes a bath bomb bar, pillow mist, soap, bath salts, body scrub, and a candle. This small family-run business has reasonable prices as well, so once you use up the first box go ahead and buy another of the same, or one with different scents.

#2 Jambys ($35)
Consider these the coziest, softest, most glorious house shorts, ever. Inspired by the comfort of a pair of boxers, Jambys have a similar cut and style—but are totally appropriate to wear out in public if needed. Available in 11 color combos, they’re also unisex.
#3 ProsourceFit Acupressure Mat Set ($24)
No acupuncturist nearby? No problem. This specially-designed mat and pillow combo offer all of the same benefits as an acupuncture session: reduced aches and pains, improved mood, better sleep, you name it. All you have to do is lay down. (And no, it doesn’t hurt at all.)
#4 LifePro Infrared Sauna Blanket ($179)
No sauna nearby? Also no problem. A quick session tucked into this blanket increases your body temp and gets you sweating to burn calories, detox, and relieve aches and pains. The experience is somehow both relaxing and energizing, the ideal takeaway for any self-care moment.

#5 Goop “The Martini” Bath Soak ($38)
This bath soak is touted as an emotional detox—and really, who couldn’t use that these days? A blend of Epsom and Himalayan salts helps calm and relax your body, while a carefully-chosen blend of essential oils and botanicals detox your mind. (All arguably better for your physical and mental well-being than an actual martini.)
#6 Natural Marble Palo Santo Set ($19)
Give the gift of good vibes only. This set is hand-polished marble complete with its own unique patterns, making it totally functional yet beautiful enough to display as a piece of artwork. All you need to do is buy a bundle of palo santo sticks and burn them to help cleanse your space of negative energy.
#7 Moen Aromatherapy Handshower ($70)
Showering can either be a basic hygiene practice or a totally spa-like experience—maybe it’s just us, but we think the latter sounds far more enjoyable. Swap your shower head out for this one (don’t worry, no tools are needed for installation) and you’re good to go. It comes with aromatherapy capsules that diffuse delightful essential oil-based scents straight into the water spray, turning even a quickie shower into a moment of relaxation. The perfect gift for a busy mom, perhaps?
#8 Weighted Blanket ($54)
In our opinion, snuggling up with a weighted blanket is the ultimate form of self-care. Made with breathable microfiber material, you’ll never get too hot under this soft cozy blanket. This one comes in a smaller size just to cover the body, so double-check that all your measurements are correct before purchasing.
#9 Amazon Essentials Waffle Mid-length Robe ($21)
The perfect piece for at-home lounging, this midi-robe is made from cotton and polyester, with a tie closure and pockets (very important). It also comes in fifteen colors, so you can choose the perfect color for you. This is a great cost-friendly item that will help your mother relax, especially after a long bath.
#10 Hemp Gummies Extra Strength ($20)
These adult gummies contain 80mg of broad-spectrum CBD to ease stress and help promote a calm, focused mood. Made in the USA, these gummies only contain the highest-quality hemp to ensure your mood is relaxed after you take these. Also made with all-natural ingredients, there won’t be any weird aftertaste you have to deal with.
#11 Bluemercury Conscious Beauty Edit Gift Set ($99; bluemercury.com)
Sometimes self-care means spending a little extra time on yourself, and this plentiful set makes it easy to do just that. It comes chock-full-of skincare, makeup, and haircare standouts, among other things, all housed in a cute and practical canvas cosmetic case.

#12 Edn Small Garden ($200)
It’s well-known that having plants in your living space is good for you—and this techy garden makes it easy to do exactly that, even for those lacking a green thumb. The WiFi garden syncs to an app that offers helpful advice on things such as watering, while automated LED lighting means this works even for tiny and dark apartments. It relies on soil-less seed pods, too (read: no mess). FYI, there are basil pods included, but other ones for assorted plants, flowers, and herbs are available separately as well.
#13 YogaToday ($119 for one year subscription; yogatoday.com)
There are plenty of online streaming services for all kinds of yoga classes, but we’re partial to this one for several reasons. The biggest reason being that most of their on-demand yoga, meditation, and pilates classes are filmed in national parks and gorgeous natural settings, bringing an added element of serenity to your practice. And to the point of self-care, there’s even a whole section of yoga classes dedicated towards focusing on mental health.
#14 The Custom Journal (starting at $30; thecustomjournal.com)
Born out of founder Adam Graser’s own need to combat anxiety and stress during the pandemic, this is a journal unlike any other. It’s completely customizable, from the cover to the layout of the pages, where you can choose to add certain prompts. Think self-care-driven concepts such as “attitude of gratitude” and “today I say ‘no’ to,” which Graser worked with therapists to craft to ensure journaling becomes a truly therapeutic process.
#15 The Loftie Clock ($149)
Designed to help get you to get your phone out of your bedroom, this is so much more than a basic alarm clock. There are standard features, of course, such as a dimmable display and two-phase alarm, but it also has custom content that you can play right through the clock—breathwork, sound baths, meditations, playlists, and more. It’s one easy way to help ensure your bedroom is as calming and stress-free of a space as possible.
Self-care gifts are so important, even if you’re buying the gift for yourself. These are just a few types of gifts that would work, so try these out and maybe you’ll feel a lot better by the end of the day.
