Wish Your Way to Wellness: The Gifting Guide

Wish Your Way to Wellness: The Gifting Guide

With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to get gifting! Here are our favorite wellness items that will inspire a better night’s sleep, a brighter day, and a healthier lifestyle.

To Sleep

Weighted Blanket:

The benefits of a weighted blanket are bar none. A weighted blanket is the perfect gift for your friend who has trouble falling asleep, and loves to get cozy! If you’re looking to spoil your sleepless friend or family member, check out these Gravity Blankets. If you’re interested in a more cost-effective alternative, take a peek at Amazon’s Best Weighted Blankets list.

Scent Diffuser:

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of falling asleep to the comforting smell of lavender or vanilla. According to The National Sleep Foundation, particular scents can help you get relaxed, and get to sleep. There are many kinds of scent diffusers out there, so be sure to carve out some time to pick one out, and some sleepy time oils to go with it!

Electric Tea Kettle:

A cup of Sleepytime tea can go a long way for someone who can’t seem to stop tossing and turning at night. An electric tea kettle is the ideal purchase for your friend who might not have a stove at home.

To Boost Your Mood

Gratitude Journal:

What better way to show your gratitude for a loved one than to pass it onto them. Gratitude journals make for a great stocking stuffer, or a small gift that inspires enormous positive reflection. Amazon has an eclectic list of journals that will make you more grateful just by looking at them!

Happy Light:

We all know how stressful the holidays can be. A happy light is just the thing your friend or family member needs to brighten up their day, and their bedroom! If you’re feeling stuck, be sure to check out The Best Light Therapy Lamps of 2019.

Adult Coloring Book:

Who says adults can’t color too? An adult coloring book is the best gift for your friend who can’t seem to shake the stress. Everyone knows how therapeutic coloring can be, so what are you waiting for? Consider Amazon’s Best Sellers in Coloring Books for Grown-Ups!

To Get Healthy

A Cookbook:

We all have that one friend who can seemingly do everything, but cook. They make every excuse in the book, but still end up ordering in every night. This holiday, give the gift of healthy eating with a cookbook! Besides, instant ramen noodles get old really quickly.


Nothing gets a body in motion the way that music can. Gifting a speaker can turn any mundane task into a dance party! Who says that you can’t break a sweat while folding laundry? Take a look at The Best Wireless and Bluetooth Speakers for 2019 to get your loved one moving and grooving.


Athleisure is the new black, and it’s one of the most sought out gifts this holiday season. Whether it’s a pair of Athleta leggings, or Hill City joggers, check out our most desired athleisure wear in the Athleta & Hill City Gifting Guide.

We hope this guide will help you choose the perfect gift for the wellness seekers in your life. Do you have a product that you swear by? Tag us on Instagram so we can check it out!
