A journal can be used in many ways.  For example, to reflect on the good things that have happened each day or to write down dreams, goals and plans.

Here are some great journals I’ve found.

This would be a brilliant gift for anyone new to journaling. It’s packed full of information and journal prompts.  I’ve used similar books containing prompts and they definitely get you into the journaling habit.

4.  Sleep Well


Sleep is so important for health and wellbeing but let’s face it, it’s not always easy to get our Zs!

Here are some great self-care gifts to help lull anyone into dreamland.

Or, maybe an aromatherapy oil diffuser to lull them off to sleep?  This comes with a range of settings and has 4 timer modes and auto-shutoff.

Eye Masks

I don’t know about you but I need TOTAL darkness to be able to get my Zs properly!  I always have an eye mask nearby, particularly useful in the summer months.

The ones with adjustable straps are the best.

Here’s a colourful selection.

Weighted Blanket

I’m yet to try a weighted blanket.

I’ve heard such good things about them that one is on my wish list!

Research has shown that they can help with insomnia, anxiety and pain amongst other benefits.

Apparently, it’s a bit like getting a hug!  Very soothing!


5.  Luxury Hot Chocolate




What better thing to do on a cold winter’s night than to snuggle down with a mug of luxury hot chocolate?  My ultimate favourite is from Whittard of Chelsea

6.  A Nice Cup Of Tea


As I’m British I couldn’t miss this out now, could I??

Whittard’s do a fantastic selection.

How about trying something a bit different with one of their fruit teas?

7.  Neck Massage


If you don’t have anyone to massage your neck for you then this funky tool could be just the thing!  (I have a hubby who could massage my neck but claims it ‘hurts his fingers’ so I may need to invest in one of these myself 😂)
