Buddy the Elf always says “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”  Well, I’m a huge fan of the movie Elf, but I beg to differ, Buddy.  
IMHO, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is…give everyone you know presents that will help them take care of themselves and be healthier and in a better mood more often.  In fairness, Buddy’s little slogan is catchier, but I promise if you do decide to gift your loved ones with self care goodies this year, they will thank you for it profusely.  And who knows, maybe they will be so full of cheer, they will sing loud for all to hear.  #goals
If you, like me, loooove self care so much that you want to help everyone on your list practice it, here are my top self care gift recommendations, from the tiny tots all the way up to your G-ma.
Self Care Holiday Gifts

Beats Pro Over-Ear Headphones – A popular gift request year after year, any music lover on your list will be ecstatic to receive these high-quality wireless headphones.  No matter what their self care soundtrack, any man, woman or teen would be pumped to get these!
Puffin In-Bloom Collection – Any avid reader will adore this gorgeous hardcover book set!  The set includes 4 classic titles:  Anne of Green Gables, Heidi, Little Women, and A Little Princess.

Shark Tail Blanket – I know my boys (ages 5 and 7) would love this, and I think it would be perfect for any young niece, nephew or grandchild on your list (in addition to your own kiddos).  Make resting and relaxing something they want to do with this adorable blanket.
Sleep Sheep Travel Sound Machine – Any baby or child would love having this soothing, snuggly sound machine for use at home or on the go.  My kids love falling asleep to white noise, and I love how quickly they fall asleep when they do!  This gift is a self care win for everyone.

Set of 6 Bath Bombs – It may be cliche, but nothing says self care like a soothing, hot bath.  Perfect for teens and ladies (and bath-loving men) of all ages!

Lightbox with Letters – Honestly, this is something any tween or teen or adult who loves Instagram will love!  Admittedly, this is on my list because: how fun is it to be able to caption your life any way you want?  Answer:  SO fun!
Mindfulness Coloring Book – You probably already know how I feel about coloring:  it rocks.  For everyone.  This book would be perfect for literally anyone, ages 7 and up!
A Charlie Brown Christmas – Nothing says hygge like watching classic movies with your loved ones.  Any kid from 1 to 99 will love receiving this movie to watch each and every year. 

Fox Mug – This mug is super sweet for any coffee, tea or cocoa drinker on your list.  Cute for the kiddos but just as fun for any adult, it is sure to bring a smile to your loved one’s face each time they use it.

Fuzzy Women’s Fox Slippers – What does the fox say?  So hot right now.  These furry critters are everywhere this year, so why not gift someone with an on-trend, fun, and comfortable pair of slippers?  Perfect for cozying up by the fire.

Stitch Fix Personal Styling Service – Last but not least, I had to include Stitch Fix for any and all ladies on your list.  From teen girls to fashion forward seniors, this is one of my favorite gifts to give…and let’s be honest…to receive as well!  You fill out a personal style questionnaire and in just a few weeks, you will have 5 amazing items delivered to your door.  Normally, there is a $25 styling fee for each “fix” (which gets credited toward anything you decide to keep) but from now until Christmas, that styling fee is WAIVED!  Woot!  This is literally risk-free shopping y’all!  So excuse me while I go treat myself start my holiday shopping!  No judgment if you take this opportunity to buy yourself the perfect outfit for your holiday festivities.  
Whether they’ve been naughty or nice, self care is important, my Besties!  Are you loving these self care gift ideas as much as I am?  Which one are you most excited to give (or get)?!  Happy shopping, my dears!
