    Set includes diffuser with a seven color changing setting and three oils in eucalyptus, lemon, and lavender scents.


    2. A Cravings by Chrissy Teigen cookbook for taking care of yourself when you're just ~craving~ some good 'ol comfort food and need a little inspo to get you started.

    Promising review: "Very fun book to read, love Chrissy." —Lucy

    Price: $20.41

    3. A yoga mat because your mental health should be at the tippy top of your self care regimen for 2020. Time to get ~zen~.


    Promising review: "I have tried MANY yoga mats and this one is the best I've used. It is extremely comfortable to lie on, easy to tote to and from anywhere you go, very soft on the skin, and seems to be made with quality materials. It's over six feet (omg) as well which is an added bonus. I've already recommended to several family members who have HARD yoga mats that make you feel like you're just lying on a hard floor." —Rockyrob

    Price: $10.99 (available in three thicknesses and seven colors)

    4. A case of Essentia water whose bottles are not only BPA-free, but also contain alkaline and electrolytes — AKA your new hangover bestie (that are also sustainably packaged). Talk about self pampering and hydration...


    Promising review: "Alkaline water has helped change the pH levels in my body back to a more normal state, thereby eliminating the acid reflux I've been experiencing!" —GoldieK

    Price: $15.12 for a case of 12

    5. A box of Larabar snack bars to satisfy your grumbly tummy on-the-go. These contain only four ingredients and are gluten-free so you can take care of any cravings while also supplying your body with a nutritious snack.

    Promising review: "Needed extra protein and this is perfect. Peanut butter reminds me of Skippy Peanut Butter. Have tried Kind bars but some of them melt. Never had that problem with Larabar." —Carolyn

    Price: $10.20 (for a pack of ten)

    6. A four-pack of Twinings earl grey tea — that way you'll never run out of your morning pick-me-up. There's nothing quite like a cozy cup of tea to help you unwind.

    Promising review: "I'm not much of a tea drinker. I was at a friend's house and they were out of coffee, so I made a cup of Earl Grey. I fell in love with this tea. It has a great flavor. I find I now like to have a cup of tea in the afternoon and unwind. IF you enjoy a nice cup of tea, the Twining's Earl Grey is for you!" —twotonjack

    $23.64 for a box of four (50 count)

    7. A Native deodorant that is paraben and aluminum free and will keep you feeling fresh after workout sessions at the gym if getting your fitness back on track is how you're jumpstarting your self-care for the new decade.

    Promising review: "Works very well when other deodorants have not. During the last 20 years, I have tried every deodorant on the market. They work fine for a few months, but then they stop working for some reason. I have been using the Native deodorants for several years and am very satisfied." —MaureenlovestheLord


    8. A set of Dove bath bombs in case taking soothing baths is in your top five must-do's in the new year. Taking time out of your day to enjoy a warm bath with your favorite book is the best kind of "me time" there is.


    Promising review: "I have relied on the Dove brand for skincare for most of my life so I thought I'd see how they perform in the bath bomb space. Color me surprised at how wonderful their version is! Not only does it smell like a party in my bathroom, my skin felt SO nourished! It's a mini spa treatment for a small fraction of the cost of other bath bomb brands. I hope they continue to release new scents!" —Sassythang80

    Price: $5.94 for a two-count

    9. Crest 3D Whitestrips so not only your "vision" will be 2020 this year but your pearly whites will be 2020 as well. Taking care of that 1,000 watt smile!? CHECK!


    Promising review: "I've used this product for a few years now. Previously I smiled with my mouth closed since my teeth were not that attractive. Now it is totally different. I smile all the time, which is nice because I AM a happy guy. I highly recommend this unless your gums are not healthy. Personally I have experienced almost no discomfort using these strips." —Bruce

    Price: $44.88 for a pack of 20 strips

    10. A stainless steel water bottle for getting those eight cups a day that'll keep you hydrated to take on the world. This 24 oz. bottle will be your new on-the-go water vessel and will keep your hot liquids warm for up to 12 hours and cold liquids chilled for 24 hours!

    11. An Apple watch to make workouts a breeze, keep track of calendar invites and meetings easy, and setting mental and physical goals accessible. Say HELLO to the ultimate organizational watch of your dreams.


    Promising review: "I've been an avid Fitbit user for a few years now and I have to say, I should have gotten an Apple Watch a long, long time ago. It's the quintessential gadget everybody needs, especially for someone who has an active and busy lifestyle. Besides tracking my workouts and sleep, I have all my favorite apps such as the Bible app available right there on my wrist. I didn't realize how much I was missing out until now." —Reneesme

    Price: $199 (available in two color bands)

    12. A GlamGlow mask in case you want to feel luxurious when doing your skincare regimen. This mask transforms to a chrome color once it's ready to be peeled off and will reveal your best 2020 skin ever.

    I've used this mask before and aside from the satisfaction of the peel off trait of the mask, I honestly felt super bougie after using it. Why can't self-care include splurging on yourself once in a while!?


    13. A plush robe because we all are guilty for laying around in our towel after a fresh warm shower, scrolling social media, so why not switch out of your towel and opt for this plush cozy robe instead!? Scroll that 'Gram feed in coziness.


    Promising review: "I bought this robe for my aunt as a Christmas gift. It's so beautiful, I love how the collar is white and the robe is pink. I know she will love this. I was impressed by the packaging. I also really liked having the option of picking this up since Walmart is in my neighborhood. Most of all, the very quick delivery service to the Walmart in my neighborhood. Thank You Walmart!" —Mary

    $12.99 (available in five colors)

    14. A Turbie Twist hair towel that'll make your after shower routine much easier. Perfect for holding your hair while it's drying so you can apply skincare, makeup, or just simply keeping your hair wrapped until you're ready to blow-dry and style it.

    15. A light-weight and non-greasy sunscreen to protect skin from broad spectrum UVA/UVB rays. Adding this to your daily skincare routine is extremely important, and with this one it's easier than ever to have a water-like, skin-quenching formula that can be layered underneath makeup.

    Promising review: "This will be my third year using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel and I am amazed at how a product with no greasy oily residue can give such get coverage! I was totally convinced when I went to my dermatologist last week and her words were, 'If I put you in order with all of my patients your age (63) you would be the first with taking great care of your skin!' Her office has always been a believer in all Neutrogena products! Here's to another great summer on our boat with my Neutrogena!!" —LindaW


    16. A Gold's Gym foam roller so any gym goer and athlete can massage overworked muscles and help improve flexibility and muscle recovery. Sore muscles BE GONE!


    Promising review: "I initially bought this because my back was getting sore from some of the exercises I was doing. But, when it came, I saw that this roller had other uses too. A few of which I've tried. It has helped me stretch out immensely, and am so glad I purchased this!" —intelligentshopper

    Price: $14.77+ (available in 18" and 30")

    17. A case of Vita Coco coconut water great for restoring the body's electrolytes and potassium! Drink one before or after exercising to stay hydrated ~OR~ just because it tastes good!

    19. A temperature-balancing weighted blanket to help you fall asleep faster and help ease symptoms of anxiety by wrapping you up in a cozy burrito. BRB *adding to cart as we speak*.


    Promising review: "These have been improvements to this blanket and the removable washable cover made my day. Wash warm on gentle and tumble dry cool for a new feel. Both sides are now velour so no more slipping off the bed! The filling is 90% glass beads and 10% fiberfill. It feels so nice with 12 pounds being just right in my opinion. No hotter than a standard quilt for year round use. I am going to try letting my dog get under this next thunder storm to see if it calms her shaking! The grey color goes with any decor be they greens or purples or whatever. These blankets truly do improve sleep quality as shown by the benefits they afford folks with autism, etc. Thanks so much for the great improvements!" —AdrianPB

    Promising review: "This is amazing and a steal at this price. After using it many times, I'd pay much more for it. It's phenomenal." —LALA31


    22. A silk pillowcase that not only feels super luxe, but will actually help with keeping hair healthy, prevent hair loss, and assist with keeping a clear complexion. Ah, the power of silk.


    I myself love silk pillowcases and have definitely seen an improvement in my skin and less knots in my hair. Plus these look high-end as heck.

    $22.29+ (available in three sizes and 10 colors)

    23. A pair of Huggle slipper socks for lounging in ~pure~ comfort. Picture this: a hot cup of tea, your fave candle lit, a solid Netflix binge, a weighted blanket, and your trusty Huggle socks. **A self care DREAM if you ask me...**

    Promising review: "I bought these pants for my wife in black, navy and dark grey. She says they are comfortable. The material is not see-through, and they are great for most occasions. We live in Texas, and these won't be her first choice when the weather gets above 95 degrees, but they will be great the rest of the year!" —kenny0259

    Promising review: "I use the eye mask right before I do my makeup. I let it set for about 15 minutes then I clean under my eye. It makes under my eye feel clean and hydrated and decreases puffiness. It's a fairly good size so it covers majority of your under eye and it also had a nice smell." —TydajahT

    $8 for a pack of three

    26. A WoodWick candle set you can place in various rooms of your home for a soothing fireplace *crackling* ambience while you unwind from a long day.

    Promising review: "Making this product... it's the best ever, I use it everyday, recommend to family & friends.. It's hard to find in stores, when I do find it, I buy all they have on the shelve, which is never more than a tub or two.." —Honey


    31. And a white noise relaxation machine to help you fall sound asleep. It features six various sounds from waterfall to rainforest that you can travel with so you can always sleep comfortably.


    Promising review: "I am sooo glad I bought this, I have never slept better!! I wish I had this sooner...I would have loved to tried it on my son when he was a baby. I prefer the ocean sound my self however the rain & summer night are good for me too. I love that it has a timer but you can also leave it on all night so thats great also. You can plug it into the wall or put batteries in it. The volume is adjustable & can get loud enough to drown out anything, so if you're in the city it would work great." —Crystal

    Price: $23.90
