10 Self Love & Self Care Gift Ideas

I've recently been involved in some much needed self development training, I'll fill you in a little more on that soon ;) 

It has opened my eyes to a whole new world of self love and self care and just how important it is to take time out to really concentrate on yourself; spend time on you, get to know yourself and look after yourself. Self Love training has completely changed my life, my mindset & my confidence. People around me have noticed a huge difference and I've been hit with comments such as, 'Wow, what are you on? I'll have some of whatever you're taking!!' It's SELF LOVE baby! ;)

It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and never take time out for yourself, or maybe you're feeling a bit overwhelmed or are going through a tough time right now?
Although I'd love to serve you up a dose of self love and make all your problems fade away, it's so important to regularly take time out to pay attention to yourself and your self-care.

So, I've been on the hunt for the most awesome Self Love and Self Care gifts, to treat yourself to (because you TOTALLY deserve it!) or to gift someone who you think could do with a bit of extra self care in their lives... you can thank me later ;)



US based, Uncommon Gifts is a privately owned online retailer specialising in unique and handmade pieces whose mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers. And I have found the most amazing gifts to spoil yourself or a loved one with...

1. A Journal
Journalling is a fantastic way to get your thoughts down on paper and help you see things clearer. It's also a great way to remind you of your gratitude and your why, to bring your focus back to why you do what you do. Treat the man in your life to one here or find other great gifts for men.

2. Massage
A massage is one of the most caring and healing things you can do for the body. And you don't always have to fork out for expensive massages, a bit of self massage each day does the world of good!! 

3. At Home Spa Treatments
There is nothing better than pampering yourself. And often the best gifts are those which say 'relax, treat yourself to some YOU time'. These eye stones are made from Finnish bedrock and when chilled in the fridge, they bring tired eyes relief in a rock-solid spa treatment. 

4. Bath Treats
A relaxing bubble bath is the perfect way to unwind. These bath salts feature seven aromatic blends to bring a sense of calm after a busy day. 

5. Wishing Ball
As my confidence coach has taught me, 'It is impossible to be GRATEFUL and DOWN at the same time'. Gratitude has been a game changer for me. Spending time each day going over the things I am truly grateful for, makes me realise how very lucky I am and starts my day right! This quirky little gift is a unique way to treasure your thoughts of gratitude or your goals and wishes. You can find more quirky little gifts here

6. Candles
I don't know about you, but when I want to relax there HAS to be candles! Set the ambience, fill the room with relaxing fragrances and wind down after a busy day. This one sets the scene of a cosy Winter's night in... *sigh* ;)

7. Self Love Book
One of the most difficult parts of my self development journey was learning to love myself. Doing my daily affirmations and taking time to think about the things I liked about myself really helped. I love the idea of this book allowing you to fill in the gaps with simple prompts for a collection of all the reasons you love yourself. It would also be a really sweet and personal gift to spell out exactly why you love someone. Maybe a cute anniversary gift for the man in your life? Check it out, and other great gifts for men on the Uncommon Gifts website.

8. Letters to Yourself 
Self reflection is important to enable you to grow. I love the idea of these correspondence inspired letters, a beautiful way to capture a moment in time and stay in touch with yourself. 

9. Affirmations / Positive Quotes
Starting and finishing my day with my daily affirmations and powerful, positive quotes keeps me focussed. This paperweight makes for an encouraging gift or inspiring prompt for your own workspace.

10. CHOCOLATE!
One of my most favourite forms of self love is to treat myself! ;) And personally, a little bit of chocolate does the trick just nicely. It's a real mood-lifter as it encourages your brain to release feel-good endorphins. How about this champagne bottle shaped milk chocolate treat filled with champagne truffles? Well I'm sold, bring me the chocolate!! ;)


What about you? 
What ideas do you have for gifts
