The holidays are full of hustle and bustle. Gift giving and extra time with family and friends leaves us fulfilled but also exhausted. This year, gift yourself (or a friend in need) with a moment to take a deep breath and indulge in some self-care.


A trip to Iceland may not be in the cards but you can certainly still feel the indulgence with these incredible Iceland bath salts. Ease sore muscles, breathe in the gorgeous scent and let all of your worries melt away. You’ll forget you are soaking in your own tub!


Always wanted to whiten your teeth but can’t find the time or have super sensitive teeth? This whitening kit solves both of those problems. Five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening will lead to pearly whites. The blue light accelerates the whitening gel and it easily plugs into your phone. In just 10 days you’ll have a noticeably brighter smile and it’ll take no extra time out of your day–you can do it while you get ready for work or for bed.

Little Words Project

Sometimes self-care is as simple as a reminder of your self-worth. We adore these bracelets for both their style and substance. Choose the statement that speaks to you–we love “Be You”–and rock that bracelet until you feel like someone else needs it more than you. The brand is all about women supporting women and kindness. You can even register your bracelet online to track how it gets shared by women across the world.

Refuge Hair

Does your hair need a boost? This indulgent hair care system starts with a quiz to get to know your hair–including type, issues, color, texture–and recommends a system based on your answers. All of the varieties smell delicious and target your personal needs.


This isn’t your typical subscription box; this one is curated by therapists who pick the best items that they believe really help with self-care, like self-love workbooks, aromatherapy candles, eye masks, vision boards and more.

Daily Harvest

Eating healthy is definitely self-care #goals but it’s not always easy to find time to whip up a nutritious meal. Daily Harvest Goodies are a great option for those on-the-go and delivers harvest bowls, smoothies, bites, soups and more, all of which are full of vegetables, fruits and other good-for-you ingredients.


It’s hard to grab a moment of Zen but having a meditation app on your phone makes it easier to find a few minutes for deep breathing and stress relief. There are targeted meditations, depending on how you are feeling or what you’re doing (anxiety, focus, sports, eating etc.), in various lengths, making it easy to fit into your schedule.


Sometimes all you need is a break to do something creative without putting in too much effort. Adult coloring books are a great way to unwind and take a moment to focus on something other than worries. You’ll be in a state of relaxation and have a masterpiece to show for it, too!
