If there's one thing we all need this year, it's some lovely wellness gifts. 2020 has been a hard pill to swallow for many of us, that's no secret. From the pandemic to politics and everything in between, it's fair to say we've all had a lot on our plates.
Luckily, Christmas is right around the corner which means 'tis the season of gift giving. If you're struggling for gifts for your girlfriend, gifts for your boyfriend, or gifts for any friends and relatives, then why not consider a wellness gift?
We all need to unwind as we approach the end of the year and what better way to do so than with a little wellness session? From soothing diffusers to spruce up your energy and atmosphere to though-provoking journals to track your healthy progress and even calming candles to make you feel at ease, the list of Christmas gifts 2020 has to offer when it comes to self care is endless.
Here are just a few of our favourites to surprise your loved ones with this Christmas...

We can't discuss wellness and self care without a mention to skincare. Taking care of our skin not only looks but feels great.

BEAUTY BAY's The Jade Facial Roller also helps to reduce facial tension, aid lymphatic drainage and increase the absorption of your favourite skincare products.
Whilst we'll admit that we love a good cup of coffee, we can't deny that the jittery feeling is far from one of zen.

The black-owned brand mixes seven essential superfoods to support skin glow, debloating, and serene focus. What's not to love?
