Different self-care gifts for different women to recharge and enjoy some much deserved me time
Self-care is starting to get on everyone’s radar, which is great! We live in a world where it is all about the hustle. We have to do more, work more, BE more. Which as humans is a lot. We’re not robots, we need a break.
If you take the time to relax and recharge, you can show up more productive and everyone in your life will benefit. It is honestly essential for your mental health.
So I know that it’s July and gifts aren’t on everyone’s radar but why not give the gift of self-care at any time of the year?
Christmas in July anyone?
A self care gift is the perfect gift to give because it is showing your friend, significant other, mom, aunt … that THEY MATTER. That they deserve to take the time to themselves to take care of themselves. If you’re looking for the best gifts for self care, don’t worry I got you!
What is self-care?
Self-care is anything you do to recharge, physically and emotionally. It is taking care of YOU. It can be big things like vacations or day trips. Or it can also be small things like reading a book, taking a bath, or going for a walk.
Self care comes in many shapes and sizes so what works for me, may not work for you. However, it is something that takes a little trial and error to figure out. Once you find your thing though, self-care is a beautiful thing.
Why is self-care important?
- Help reduce stress
- Help with anxiety and depression
- Improve your sleep
- Boost your immune system
- Increase your productivity
- Help you to be a better version of yourself
And it’s just plain ole good for you!
So now that we know all of that, let’s get into the reason you are here: the best self-care gifts for the special women in your life.

Soy wax candles are a great alternative to regular candles. They are made from soybeans and are eco-friendly. They come in a variety of scents.

One time I went to a candle making shop with some friends and I had so much fun. You can design a candle with your favorite scent and then be able to smell it for days to come!
If there isn’t a candle making shop near you, why not bring it home? This can be a great gift for someone who likes to stay home but also wants to try new things. Who knows, they could find their favorite scent of all time.
We all know someone who loves to be comfortable! Well, part of self care is relaxing and recharging so why not give a gift that will get them in that cozy mood. It’s a bonus that Living Koselig is all about those cozy vibes!

Daily movement is an essential proponent of a self-care routine. As humans, we are meant to move so it’s important to do some kind of physical activity every day. It’s all about doing an exercise you LOVE but why not do it in style? There are so many health benefits to getting up and moving daily!
Here are some gift ideas that will get them ready to hit their workout!
A good pair of leggings is a must for any woman who loves to workout. Honestly, it can make or break your workout if you have a pair of leggings that are see-through or uncomfortable. Check out these leggings that I love^
35. Gym Bag
If you love hitting the gym, a quality gym bag that can hold all your essentials is a must! Here’s the bag I used when I use to go to a commercial gym (I now workout in my garage). This bag has a spot for your shoes and even wet things.
36. Water Bottle
A water bottle is a must for any fitness lover. It’s important to stay hydrated during your workout and in life in general. I’ve had the teal one with positive affirmations on it for a while now and I love it. It is also a shaker so you can use it for protein shakes, pre-workouts, green juice, etc.!
37. Fitness Tracker
A fitness tracker is a great way to track your progress and see how far you’ve come. It’s also a great motivator to keep pushing yourself to reach your goals. I used to have a fitbit before I got an Apple Watch and I loved it.

A yoga mat is a great way to get in some exercise at home.
The Tea Lover
I’m a huge fan of tea so I needed to include it in this roundup of self care gifts for women.
I always love trying new tea and it is fun to receive it as a gift because I’ve gotten tea that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise. I’ve found some of the best-tasting teas from gifts!

If your tea lover is looking to try new teas, this is the perfect gift! They will receive a box of 4 different teas every month.

A rose quartz roller or jade roller is a great way to reduce puffiness and wrinkles. It’s also a great way to massage your face and relax.
43. Face Masks
Uhh… facial masks? You know, not THOSE kinds of masks.
Face maks are a great way to unwind after a crazy day. They are also great for your skin!
44. Face Spray
A face spray is a great way to refresh your makeup or just your face in general. This one is my personal favorite and they smell amazing!
45. Face Oil
This may be a gift for yourself but it is supposed to improve your skin. I’ll be honest, I haven’t tried face oil but it says it brightens and hydrates your skin so it is great to use after a day in the sun.
You can use these to relax or even during your meditation. The lavender will provide calming benefits that could help reduce anxiety and stress.
Some people may argue that lotion is a cop out gift but I think lotion is a very practical gift! I love receiving lotion as a gift because I’m always in need of it.
If someone you know loves a good spa day at home, here are some ideas!
A gel nail polish starter kit is a great way to give yourself a professional-looking manicure at home.

Puzzles are a great way to pass the time. They are also great for your brain!

There is something very calming about watching a plant grow before your eyes (unless it is dying then that is super frustrating) but plants bring so many benefits into your home and are also athestically pleasing.
