To Take the Indulgence With Her: Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet
Offering the scents of lavender, rosemary, bergamot and eucalyptus, this bracelet turns aromatherapy into an “on the go” experience. It looks a bit like a watch, but there’s a Tree of Life pendant rather than a clock face, and the pink band winds several times around the wrist in a very chic style.
The oils are nestled beneath the pendant, so you can enjoy a steady, low-level release of fragrance without getting any liquid on your skin or clothes. It’s aromatherapy for the busy lady.
For Blossoming in Hard Times: Opal Lotus Flower Necklace
If you aren’t familiar with the story behind the lotus flower, it’s famous for surviving in dark, muddy places like swamps and marshes. It pushes through the muck and reveals gorgeous blossoms that range from pale, delicate pinks to dark and mysterious purples.
This pendant necklace embodies both the mood and the message of the lotus blossom, promising that “we too have the ability to rise from the mud” and “radiate into the world.”

It’s also available in multiple colors and finishes, so whether they’d prefer a swanky pink or blue tray or a luxury, salon-style natural wood tray, you can find one to suit their aesthetic.
If they’re into yoga, meditation, reiki or anything else that centers around calmness and mindfulness, this incense holder can be a great relaxation tool as well as a stylish home accessory. It operates “backwards,” pushing the smoke of the incense through a hidden tunnel in a ceramic mountain, so it looks as though water or mist is flowing downwards from the rocks.
It can serve as a wonderful centerpiece for a calm, relaxed space.
As Sweet as a Honeycomb: Lovery Almond Milk and Honey Spa Kit

How to Find and Select Great Presents for Pampering
Maybe they’re a busy professional who needs to unwind. Maybe they’re just going through a tough time, and they could really use a spa day or a gourmet coffee or chocolate experience. Whatever your reasons for wanting to pamper them, here are just a few gift-giving tips to get the job done.
Keep It Practical
Make sure that your pampering gift is something that your loved one will actually use. If they aren’t a candle person, for example, they aren’t going to get excited about a candle gift just because it has a relaxing vanilla scent. If they’re a caveman who likes going barefoot, even the softest, fuzziest pair of slippers will get an “eh” reaction. Don’t forget about their unique likes and dislikes just because you’re shopping for luxury-level goods.
Think About the Gift’s Therapeutic Value
Similar to the above, you’ll want to choose a gift that has actual therapeutic benefits for the recipient. For example, a heat wrap or a handheld massager might help them physically relax while an enormous fruit basket might give them a mental or emotional boost. Even things like coloring books have been shown to have de-stressing properties.
Don’t Be Afraid to Go Overboard
You don’t want to blow out your budget, of course, but there’s no harm in splurging a little when you’re buying something that’s meant to be lavish or luxurious. The whole point of self-indulgence is that it isn’t an everyday occurrence. Every once in awhile, it’s fine to be extravagant.
These are just a few ways to spoil someone with pampering gifts. Do you have any other ideas? What do you turn to when you need a little self-care? We’re always open to suggestions, especially when they involve cookies, candles, bath bombs and other indulgent treats!
