Read on for the best self care gifts that you’ll definitely want to keep for yourself!
Best Self Care Gifts
Skincare is one of my passions and I love trying out new devices! Red light therapy has SO many benefits and CurrentBody has been proven to be 31% more powerful than any other brand! If you are unfamiliar with LED masks, here’s a quick intro – LED stands for light-emitting diode. The tiny bulbs in the masks use light wavelengths to travel deep into your skin layers.
Red Light Therapy Benefits:
- Reduces redness, fine lines and acne inflammation
- Painless and non-invasive
- Great for dark circles and uneven skin tone
The CurrentBody LED mask actually combines Red (633nm) and Near Infra-Red Light (830nm). Red light calms redness, evens skin tone and aids in collagen production. Near Infra-Red Light penetrates deep into the skin to improve blood flow and boost circulation and oxygen. When used together, the result is visibly glowing and noticeably healthier looking skin!
This particular mask also has a flexible body, which is something that I have not used before! The flexibility actually allows the lower layers of skin to receive the maximum amount of light for instant and long term results. In fact, 95% of users said that they saw an improvement in skin tone, texture and firmness!
How to Use the Current Body LED Mask
1.) Cleanse skin and pat dry.
2.) Attach and adjust the strap around your head.
3.) Turn on the device (treatments are only 10 minutes so you can relax or even do an activity around the house!)
4.) Remove and wipe device.
5.) Store in the protective storage bag (included)
Pro Tip: Put on CurrentBody Skin Hydrogel Face Mask and layer the LED mask on top! This combo is proven to hydrate and nourish the skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Also, if you’re an Emily in Paris fan (I am!), this iconic Current Body LED Mask may look familiar as it was featured in the last season. Many other celebrities swear by this LED mask and it’s also graced the pages of in VOGUE, Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar.
I’ve tried a hard shell mask in the past and I have to say that I much prefer the flexibility of the CurrentBody red light mask! It’s really comfortable and I’ve been finding my sessions to be quite relaxing. It’s like having a spa day at home! I just started using this but I’m excited to see how this does long term. In the meantime, check out a before and after!

Nothing makes me feel more like a new person than a fresh, new sheets! This Honeydew Sheet set is soooo dreamy! These sheets are derived from 100% organic bamboo, are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified and include corner straps to ensure a perfect fit. The sheets themselves feel very soft and silky, giving them a luxurious quality. They also wick away moisture to help you sleep better.
Personally, I did not find myself to be too hot or too cold with these! I felt that they regulated my temperature well and my husband felt the same (he’s a hot sleeper and I’m always cold lol!). Also the corner straps are amazing and keep everything in place! I wish all fitted sheets had this. I also loveee how soft and silky they feel – so luxurious! The set overall is really beautiful, comfortable and high quality. Honeydew pillows would also make an amazing self care gift!
Eli & Elm Weighted Comforter
This cozy Eli & Elm weighted comforter is a dream (literally!). It’s specifically designed to give you a calm and relaxing night’s sleep by helping you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. This weighted comforter features 100% cotton fabric, 300 thread count and thousands of evenly distributed glass beads.
This is actually my first experience with a weighted blanket and WOW, I’m so impressed. I do actually have issues with falling asleep and this helped out so much. It’s hard to put the experience into words but the best way I can describe this is a giant hug. It felt like a relaxing spa-like experience and I have to say that it has helped me fall asleep right away, which is unheard of.
It also includes sewn in duvet loops so you can use it as a duvet insert or a regular blanket. I actually just got a new duvet cover and it works perfectly with this! Overall I loveeee this weighted comforter and think it would be definitely be an amazing self care gift for anyone!

Pretty pajamas are one of my favorite ways to romanticize your life and practice self care. I must say, I definitely have a love affair with Cosabella lingerie! It’s so luxurious and beautiful. You can read my full review on their stunning pieces here. This is actually my first time trying out their pajamas though and oh my goodness, they are incredible!!
I got the Bella Pajama Set in two colors – Jaipur Pink, a lovely peppy pink color and Neela Flower, a stunning lilac shade. These sets are made with soft Peruvian cotton and modal with satin piping. I’m 4’11” so I got the petite version and they fit like a dream! It’s always so hard to find pajama bottoms that don’t drag on the floor but these are perfect. And they are soooo soft and comfy! I just love the colors as well!

Sensate Relaxation Device
When I say that I’ve never seen anything quite like this, I mean it! Many of you may not know this, but I’ve had anxiety since I was a child. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve looked for natural ways to relieve stress and anxiety and I’ve found that meditation, positive self talk and keeping a gratitude journal work wonders. I was recently introduced to Sensate and it’s been a game-changer!
Sensate works naturally with the body’s nervous system to reduce stress and relax your body. The device emits soft vibrations to relax your nervous system and the app plays thoughtfully composed soundscapes to give you an immersive experience whether you’re looking to de-stress, relax, or meditate. I tried it for the first time the other night and I can’t even tell you how fast I fell asleep! It’s since become part of my nightly ritual.

Overall, any of these self care gifts would be perfect for anyone that loves creating a cozy space and taking care of themselves (because we all deserve a little TLC!). Also, if you’re wondering – my scalloped duvet cover and shams are from Serena & Lily! I just got them and I am in love! They are having tons of huge holiday sales so be sure to check them out!
