    1. A fragrance diffuser featuring two scents from Nest to keep their home smelling absolutely marvelous (that's sure to keep them in an A+ mood).

    Pura Smart Home Fragrance Diffuser Set

    Set comes with Pura wall plug and two Nest scents.

    I'm so in love with my Pura diffuser. It syncs up to an app on your phone so you can determine how much fragrance it diffuses at any given time (which is incredibly fun and cool), and it will also let you know when the fragrance is running low. I currently have the Holiday scent from Nest in mine and it makes my room smell like Christmas and when my room smells good, I feel good so this is a win in my book.

    Get it from Sephora for $85.

    2. A candle making kit so they can get crafty making their own candle and then enjoy its heavenly aroma during their next spa night.


    Making this candle is super easy: microwave, pour, and enjoy. You can also gift it with a cute jar for them to make it in that they can then use afterwards once they've enjoyed the full burn of their candle!

    Get it from Siblings for $22.

    3. A hair shampoo brush to lather and massage the scalp that'll most likely extend their shower time due to ~pure tingly bliss.~

    Hair shampoo brush

    Promising review: "This is a great little tool. My daughter and I both have VERY thick hair. Mine is especially difficult because it's curly (I have a combination of type 3A and 3B curly hair). My daughter always had a hard time getting to her scalp, which left some shampoo and conditioner not reaching her scalp, which caused some flaking and dandruff. Since she's been using this, that has stopped. It's made it much easier for both of us to get down to the root shaft. For people saying "just use your fingernails," this works better. I've had long and short nails and this still works better. It's easy to grip and clean. No complaints here." —EMM

    Get it from Amazon for $5.47+ (available in four colors).

    4. A bottle of body butter in a blood orange and white pepper scent so they can add hydration back into the skin that may have taken a bit of a hit from the chilly weather.

    Bliss body butter in blood orange and white pepper

    Promising review: "I lived in the desert for many years and suffered from dry, cracking skin. I found this body butter one day and it was the only thing that worked for my chapping skin. I've used it ever since - and I even used it on my stomach through two pregnancies to help with itching of a stretching stomach (with no stretch marks, but that may be unrelated!). The orange scent is my favorite." —Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    5. A set of rejuvenating eye gel patches so they can fool everyone into thinking they are well rested, even if they were probably up until 2 a.m. watching TikToks..., Amazon

    Promising review: "Used these on the morning of my wedding day, because who gets a great night's sleep the night before?! Used them the next morning on the way to the airport at 4 a.m. after our wedding, because who sleeps the night of their wedding?! (My husband used them too). You may not be energized but it will look like you are. Pop them in the fridge and it’s an even better effect. No issues and then rub the leftover serum on and it’s like a mini facial." —Cassidi

    Get a 30-pack from Amazon for $50.

    6. An I Dew Care mask set — so satisfying to peel off they'll want to use it multiple times per week. Set comes with their hydrating mask, illuminating mask, and exfoliating mask so they can mix and match to their skin's needs.


    Promising review: "Love, love, love this mask!! My skin instantly looks amazing 😍 I have glowing skin after using the mask and my face feels so smooth. My favorite peel-off mask for sure." —lyn l

    Get it from Amazon for $17.28.

    7. An anti-spill coaster to keep their drink safe from spillage. Nothing is worse than putting your feet up on the coffee table and your hot cocoa taking a tumble...

    Anti-spill coaster holding coffee cup

    Promising review: "I have cats. Can’t tell you how many times my drinks ended up on the floor. This solved the problem perfectly. I had to laugh watching my cat bat at it trying to figure out why he couldn’t throw it forward the coffee table." —S. Sheaffer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    8. A wall suction storage cup for keeping their toothbrush off their vanity counter. It's also functional as additional storage spaces for their most needed self-care products like headphones, creams, makeup brushes, etc. (P.S. this works in the shower!)


    Promising review: "Wonderful addition to our shower. I added it to the shower glass door. It doesn’t get very wet and I haven’t had any issues with it growing mold. We house toothpaste, two toothbrushes and a razor without any trouble." —Jessika G.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    9. A milk frother because nothing says they're ready for a night full of me-time than a yummy latte with the most fluffy frothed milk. Ahhh — the good life.

    Milk frother with coffee and milk froth

    Promising review: "Until now I have tried steamer attachments (ouch! many burns!), hand whisks, and battery-operated whisks, but none have worked with less effort and better results than the Miroco Electric Milk Frother! Instructions recommend whole milk for best results, but I use 2% milk and it works great. Love the fact it has a special setting for cold milk." —Don The Idea Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    10. A pack of makeup remover cloths that are reusable so they can stop blowing through makeup wipes like crazy. These are machine washable so they can use them over and over again, and will remove their makeup with JUST water!

    Makeup remover cloth before and after makeup removal

    Promising review: "I love these way more than the originally and expensive $20 Make Up Remover towel that I have. They are better because you can use them daily and not have to work around the old dirt from the days before. They’re super soft and gentle on your face. They don’t get ruined when washing. I use one side one day then flip it over and use the other side on the next day. At the end of the week I wash them all with my bath towels and they still stay nice and soft and clean after washing. If you’re using make up wipes, just do yourself a favor and buy these instead. It will save you money first of all. And make up wipes are super bad for your face. Not to mention, horrible for the environment. Wipes are one of the most wasteful products out there! And these will honestly remove the makeup with much less force. It’s seriously like magic!" —Itsaanne

    Get a pack of 10 for $12.95 from Amazon for (available in three sizes and two colors).

    11. A Hey Dewy portable humidifier they can pop on their desk or next to their bed to nourish skin for up to eight hours! Getting work done and a facial? Sold.

    Hey Dewy

    Promising review: "Love the clean, compact design. It’s Easy to travel with; works well anywhere in the house and in the car :) I traveled with it when I went to Colorado and it really helped with the dry air. Highly recommend." —Kristine K.

    Get it from Hey Dewy for $39 (available in three colors).

    12. A bag of shower steamers made with essential oils for a relaxing aromatic scent of eucalyptus and mint. Pop one of these on the floor of the shower and the warm water will dissolve them for a shower experience they'll want to treat themselves to again and again.

    Promising review: "What a cool concept. Have been using bath bombs for a while now and stumbled upon these in a shower format. Some days I just don’t feel like taking baths so this was the perfect solution to combine the relaxation effects and just taking a quicker shower. Highly recommended!" —Michael

    Get a pack of 15 from Amazon for $29.97.

    13. A Hum electric toothbrush that features powerful sonic vibrations and a guided brushing experience so they can take care of their stunning smile. This has three vibration modes for the most personalized brushing experience.

    Hum electric toothbrush on bathroom vanity

    Promising review: "HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Love this toothbrush! It's so sleek, looks amazing in my bathroom, and my mouth feels squeaky clean after use. The guided brushing in the app is great and helps to train you how to brush better all the time. It's ability to tie into the Apple health app is exciting and getting points to use towards replacement heads is such a fantastic idea. PLUS the price makes it all the more worth it." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $56.93+ (available in two colors).

    14. An electric wine opener for effectively removing the cork from their fave wine. (A glass of wine sounds a lot like some quality me-time to me.) 🍷

    Electric wine opener

    This opener can open up to 30 bottles in a single charge. It also feature a foil cutter for easy seal removal and is rechargeable.

    Promising review: "As a senior citizen, I find that opening a bottle of wine can be a challenge using a manual corkscrew. This opener is great. You place it on the bottle with one hand while holding the bottle with the other and press a button. The corkscrew goes into the cork and will stop when it's fully inserted. Press the button again and it will remove the cork from the bottle and then continue until the cork comes off of the corkscrew. So much easier than doing it manually. I've used it at parties and the charge will last between 20-30 bottles." —CharmY2K

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    15. A First Aid Beauty gift set featuring an array of their most popular products so they can test them all. This limited edition set is great for normal, oily, dry, and combination skin types.

    First Aid Beauty All That FAB gift set

    Set includes their ultra repair cream intense hydration, facial radiance pads, pure skin face cleanser, ultra repair lip therapy, and eye duty brightening eye cream — AKA a self-care day in a box plus this whole set is a $127 value.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love FAB skin care products. Especially the ultra repair cream, it’s the best moisturizer ever! When I saw this set I couldn’t pass it up. These are staple FAB products, mostly full size, and the price is great." —204 Ems

    Get it from Sephora for $49.

    16. A set of shea butter-infused fuzzy socks since moisturizing and keeping their feet warm are most likely priorities this time of year.

    Shea butter infused fuzzy socks

    Promising review: "Kohl's has the best Earth therapeutic socks! I recently purchased two more sets of these to replace some older ones I had for over a year! They are very comfortable on and not tight around the ankle. I always buy the cuffed ones as they come up taller and stay on. They also have the grips on the bottoms so you don't slip! I have washed and dried them many times and they hold their shape! I highly recommend these, you won't be sorry! I've bought these for years!" —Abby

    Get a pack of two from Kohl's for $9.10 (originally $13, available in four colors).

    17. A Smart Squeeze stress relief ball for any anxious moments they may need to get out of their system (because mental health is also self-care). This syncs up to an app that lets them see how much their grip is strengthening as well as a variety of exercises they can do.

    Smart Squeeze Stress Relief Ball
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "You're getting exactly what you'd expect. I purchased this for my husband. He's been interested in his grip strength after working on pull-ups for a while. This device was easily paired with a phone app, and tracks grip strength. He's having fun with it, and said it feels like a game. Like I said, this is exactly what you'd expect. I'm very happy with it." —Natalie

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $40.

    18. A set of bath bombs that will fizz and foam in the bath for a self-pampering sesh they need after a long hard day's work. *Alexa play, "A Hard Day's Night" by the Beatles*

    The bath bombs, each wrapped in brown paper

    Promising review: "I didn't expect to like them as well as I do. We have used the Lush ones before, which are cuter (hey, they make them look like carrots for Easter), these are all white and round, but they do smell great and feel great in the water. At least the two boxes I used fizzed nicely, as I had hoped. They also DID NOT leave the bathtub slippery as some of the others I have used did." —C. Brennan

    Get them on Amazon for $19.89.

    19. A coffee warmer — perfect for the person who wants to enjoy a hot cup of tea while they're face-masking. This will ensure their hot beverage stays warm beyond the typical time frame they usually have to drink it before it gets cold.

    Coffee cup warmer

    This coffee mug warmer can heat coffee up to 131 degrees Fahrenheit/55 degrees Celsius (ta ta cold, gross coffee). After plugging the adapter into an outlet, the warmer will work automatically once a mug is place on top and will also stop once the mug is removed #coffeemagic.

    Promising review: "My new favorite home gadget! Keeps my coffee warm but can also move it around the house to use as a candle warmer. It heats up the candle from bottom to top, the smell is much stronger than with a flame! I'll confess that the other day I had a cheese dip and thought, let me heat it up (I mean why not, right!?) so I placed in on the warmer and it warmed it up pretty fast and stayed warm for a good while. The warmer is very easy to clean as well. Best part is that it turns on when you place coffee mug, candle on top. When you remove it automatically shuts off. This would be a great gift and the price is awesome!" —REM

    Get it from Amazon for $22.39.

    20. A sherpa blanket sweatshirt so they can snuggle up on the couch with a hot bevvy in tow and watch their current can't-live-without show.,

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I wanted. It's super soft, large, the sleeves are tight at the end and the hood is oversized. I am super happy with this and have been wearing it every day since I received it." —Leigh

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 15 colors).

    21. A Mango Popsicle sheet mask to sweeten their next skincare session with some fruity goodness.

    the sheet mask package
    Peach & Lily

    Promising review: "This sheet mask smells amazing. My skin was glowing afterwards. It's a favorite now. I will definitely be repurchasing." —Sierra

    Get it from Peach & Lily for $3.49.

    22. A Woodwick candle that smells like mimosas so they can enjoy a mimosa while enjoying the fresh aroma and subtle crackle of this life-changing candle.

    Seaside Mimosa Woodwick candle

    Promising review: "Love Woodwick candles and melts soooo much! My favorite candles ever. They are strong but not overbearing and last forever." —Ambz

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

    23. A Laneige Lip sleeping mask to soften their skin and lock in hydration overnight. Reapply throughout the day as a glossy balm or pop on at night before going to sleep.

    Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in berry

    Promising review: "Obsessed! I’ve bought this for many friends. I use it morning and night. I’m not someone who gets cracked lips. However, I was on Accutane years ago and even years later my lips stay on the dryer side. People always ask if I have filler but I have to give all the credit to this lip mask." —danilona

    Get it from Sephora for $22 (available in seven flavors).

    24. A Fresh Soy makeup removing face wash to gently take off makeup without stinging. This pH balanced face cleanser, with ingredients like rosewater and cucumber extract, is great for sensitive skin types and will feel like an aromatic facial treatment in the shower.


    Promising review: "I bought this because I wanted a light cleanser (sans AHAs) to use at night before retinol. The soy cleanser feels light and clean going on and leaves you feeling ~fresh~ with low risk for irritation from other products (in my experience). A little goes a long way, so although it's on the pricier side, one bottle lasts for a few months." —schaboi

    Get it from Sephora for $38.

    25. A Son & Park Beauty Water – it'll replace their need for toner, cleanser, and moisturizer — it acts as all three (*mind blown*). Pop some on a cotton pad and gently wipe face to remove additional makeup residue and dead skin while simultaneously getting in an exfoliation session.

    Son & Park Beauty Water

    Promising review: "YOU NEED THIS PRODUCT. PERIOD. This is seriously my ride or die. If I could ONLY have one skincare product, it would be THIS BEAUTY WATER. It is a makeup remover/toner/exfoliant/hydrating/cleanser, ALL IN ONE. It makes my skin feel so refreshed. Even if I wash my face, I will go in with this toner on a cotton pad and remove the makeup remains and get a good cleanse." Amanda Saunders

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95.

    26. A Gisou Hair Perfume featuring a sweet honey scent that adds shine and smells AMAZING. For moments they want to self-pamper themselves while they're getting ready, this hair perfume will be luxurious.

    Gisou Honey Infused Hair Perfume

    I purchased this a few months ago and I AM OBSESSED. I was always fond of the "spritzing some perfume under your hair" trick (aka the back of your neck), so it would last longer but this product has changed the game for me. A few quick spritzes of this on my hair since I've lightened it in color helps tame a bit of my frizz, while adding a heavenly scent that I would genuinely eat (but I won't LOL).

    Get it from Sephora for $44.

    27. A cordless head massager if their significant other isn't present to play with their hair or scratch their head... This will suffice, we're sure of it.

    Promising review: " This head massager is one of the best for its money. It is portable, easy to hold, and overall very comfortable. Everyone in my family loved this product, it makes our head feel relaxed and refreshed. I recommend everyone buys this head massager, as it is the best one available today. 10/10." —Skya E Ellengold

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    28. And a subscription to Kindle Unlimited they can use in tandem with their Kindle (it also works without a Kindle) so they can spend their relaxation time reading all of their wishlist books.
