A Practical Gift Guide for Every Beauty and Wellness Enthusiast in Your Life

When it comes to giving (and getting) gifts, I always prefer the practical approach. Don’t get me wrong; I love receiving items that I would typically not purchase for myself (those are the best!). And I love getting my friends and family presents that I *know* they’re dying to try but won’t get for themselves. That said, there’s nothing worse than getting (or giving) something just for the sake of gifting.

Whether you’re looking to get something for your beauty-obsessed friend or health-nut coworker, I’ve got you covered with 15 practical beauty and wellness gift ideas for everyone in your life.

Give the Gift of Mindfulness

A calm mind and a grateful heart are key to a happy life in our busy world. And there are countless tools to help you develop a sense of peace and gratitude. But which one do you choose?

It’s pretty much common knowledge that meditation is for everyone. Regardless of age or habits, there is not one person that will not benefit from the practice of meditation. So why not give the gift of mindfulness with a subscription to a meditation app. One of the first meditation apps on the market, Headspace, focuses on helping people experience the benefits of meditation anytime, anywhere.

This is one of my favorite tools to help foster gratitude. No matter what your life looks like at this very moment, you can benefit from being grateful for what you have right now. The Five Minute Journal helps you practice gratitude daily with an easy-to-follow, undated guide. All it takes is five minutes a day.

When in doubt, give a book! Books make great gifts. They’re budget-friendly, cover almost any topic you can imagine, and pack a lot of value. There are many books on building a positive mindset, learning how to meditate, and mindful living.

Jay Shetty breaks down what he learned as a monk into practical steps anyone can follow in his book “Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day.” It’s a great way to help your loved one take the first step in creating a purpose-filled, peaceful life.

Think Like a Monk is Available on Amazon for $13.98

Beauty Without Compromise

If you’re looking for makeup, skincare, or body products, choosing brands with a clean agenda has never been easier. Thanks to the clean beauty movement, it’s become a lot easier to shop consciously.

You can always find something at Sephora for the beauty lover in your life. They’ve made it extremely easy to shop clean with their ‘Clean at Sephora’ program. Choose from skincare, makeup, haircare, and even fragrance.

Here are a few of my favorite products available at Sephora:

This buttery cleansing balm will have you loving your nighttime skincare routine in no time. It’s perfect for those who like to wear makeup daily or for the occasional party-going.

A unique, pre-shampoo treatment that repairs damaged hair, leaving you with smooth, luscious locks after just one use.

This award-winning mascara is a no-brainer. Formulated with clean, good-for-you ingredients, it will give you instant results with long-term benefits.

If a one-stop-shop is what you need, look no further than The Detox Market. Founded in 2010, this retailer does all the hard work for you! Their carefully curated product selection has something for everyone on your list. They even have a section on their website dedicated to gift ideas. ‘The Gift Shop’ includes suggestions based on price (i.e., Under $30) and focus (i.e., The Wellness Guru or The Spa Lover).

Here are some of my top picks from The Detox Market:

You’ve probably heard of the amazing benefits of dry brushing. So why not gift it to the spa lover in your life? Made with natural, biodegradable sisal fibers, this is the perfect tool for those looking for a light exfoliation and detoxification.

Still not sure what to get them? Take all the guesswork out with a clean beauty subscription box. With the Detox Box, you get $110 of green beauty for almost half the price!

Healthy Home

When in doubt, gifts for the home are always a good idea. With so many options, you’re bound to find the perfect gift within any budget.

Saje offers various products for the home and body; from candles to skincare, they’ve got you covered. But my favorite is Aroma Om Diffuser. This stylish diffuser will fill any home with the scent of luxury. Even better is their Best of Saje Kit, which includes the Aroma Om White Diffuser, Liquid Sunshine Diffuser Blend (5 ml), and Peppermint Halo (6 ml).

This earthy-scented candle is a sure way to bring peace and warmth into the home of your loved one. Hand made with a blend of essential oils and poured into a reusable ceramic jar; this gift is beautiful and purposeful.

Inner Wellness

Wearable technology meets style. Introducing the Oura ring - a sleek ring that uses advanced sensor technology to provide users with precise, personalized health insights. During the day, Oura measures activity labels, calories, steps, inactive times, and naps. At night, it measures heart rate variability, respiratory rate, body temperate, Sleep cycles, nighttime movement, and sleep quality. Ultimately, Oura helps you “realize your potential through three simple scores: Readiness, Sleep. and Activity.”

The Beauty Basket

Why not gather a few favorites and arranging them in a beautiful basket? Gift baskets are perfect for gifting a collection of goodies in an aesthetically pleasing and well-presented way. The best part - it works well for any budget! Here are some of my favorite items for inner wellness that would work well in a gift basket: 12. Beauty & Balance Kit by The Beauty Chef

This trio works to improve your well-being from the inside out. It features 7 GLOW Inner Beauty Essential sachets, COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost, and WELL SPRAY Inner Beauty Support. The trio is collectively designed to ease digestion, support immunity, and help maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.

You already know I love gifting books, so here’s another one. This time, the focus is on nutrition for beauty. What makes this a great gift is that it will provide your recipient with the knowledge and steps to create their own healthy recipes. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Plus, it looks great wrapped individually or as part of a gift basket!

You can’t go wrong with an all-in-one collagen supplement like the BeautiBe Multi Collagen Complex. Women (and men) from age 20 and beyond can benefit from a boost of collagen intake. The BeautiBe collagen capsules are an easy way to increase collagen production. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of collagen, take a look at this article.

On the topic of inner wellness, have you heard of the benefits of turmeric? Turmeric is the ultimate superfood for skin and gut health that can support skin clarity and radiance. The Original Turmeric Superfood Latte is a blend of 6 superfoods to support skin glow, bloating, and immunity.

No matter what gift you choose to go with, know that your loved one is in good hands with any of the above! What's on your wellness wishlist?
