[Ad / gifted products.] Never was there a time more apt than right now, for focusing on positivity, wellbeing, and self-care. It seems like the world is a little bit (or maybe a lot) broken, and all we can do is keep forging ahead whilst taking care of our needs as far as possible. This will mean different things to different people depending on individual circumstances, but mindfulness gifts are accessible to all, and should be at the top of everybody’s lists this year.
Whether you’re looking for lovely positive stocking fillers, mindful activities for the kids, or journals to promote good mental health (for you and the kids) – there’s something for everyone here.
I’ve also included a couple of bigger ticket items, just in case, because treating yourself (or leaving this post open for a significant other to treat you) also counts as self-care.
Positivity and Mindfulness Gifts For Kids
Some really gorgeous items to promote positivity and wellbeing in our little ones…
Letterbox Anxiety Mindfulness Craft Kit, from The Breathing Buddy
This letterbox kit is really, truly lovely.
I adore the simplicity of the crafts and the way it has all been put together. Because it’s a small business, it’s not overly commercialised in terms of packaging or items – it all feels very authentic, and the concepts – both individually for each craft, and in its entirety as a product – are wonderful.
There are six different crafts to complete and almost everything is included in the kit, even down to a glue stick. The kit is intended for one child, but I had my girls working together on some tasks, or broke crafts up into two so they could both get involved – and they’ve absolutely loved it, asking me daily to do more!
But of course the best bit about this kit is that every craft is designed with mindfulness and powerful, positive lessons in mind. The idea that I’m equipping my girls with valuable tools to ensure their wellbeing while they’er having fun is the icing on the cake. I’m secretly hoping Kelly will create more boxes…
Available from The Breathing Buddy, for £19.99. Enter below to win one of these fabulous kits!a Rafflecopter giveaway

Create Your Own Calm, by Becky Goddard-Hill
A gorgeous book brimful of positive activities to help children understand their feelings and learn skills that will serve them for life, by combatting stress, anxiety and anger.
This wonderful book couldn’t have come at a better time, for our family, and for our broken world.

Yoga leggings, from Love Leggings
Because working out is vital for wellbeing.
When I first collaborated with Love Leggings for running leggings, I was impressed. Now that I’ve tried another range, I’m sold.
If you think all leggings are made equal, then I promise you’ll be very pleasantly surprised. The difference between the yoga and running leggings is more than you might think, but in the most perfect way.
These are still supportive, but without being at all restrictive – ideal for when you need that little bit more flexibility. I can totally see myself sliding into wearing these for way more than just working out – they’re that comfy.
Available from Love Leggings, £28 (currently on sale for Black Friday!)

Sensilift, from Sensica
With the unpredictability of lockdowns, if you’re missing your self-care pamper time then now is the perfect time to invest in a solution – why not consider an at-home treatment? Having this product to hand is almost the same as visiting a salon for a facial!
Using DRF (Dynamic Radio Frequency) technology to stimulate collagen production, Sensilift is clinically proven, non-invasive and pain free, and offers long term results:
Visibly reduced wrinkles and younger looking skin!
My Positivity Project, from Peonies & Peace
Created during lockdown to offer support to promote wellbeing and positivity for anyone struggling with their mental health, this is a hybrid between a book and a guided journal.
The purpose of the planner is to encourage you to think better, live better, and ultimately feel better. This is achieved through simple mindfulness and journalling exercises (among others), which develop and promote self-awareness, self-reflection, and self-care.
The journal includes:
- Exercises to promote wellbeing and positivity,
- Gratitude lists,

- 4 mini self-care gifts (including chocolate!).

Available from Fred Aldous, £17.50.
A Stunning Personalised Necklace, from Monica Vinader
If your better half is looking to treat you and you’re wondering what the perfect self-care gift is, it has to be this beauty:
Available in many different variations, the charms can be selected to your taste, as can the colour and style of the chain. Many charms can also be engraved and have earrings, bracelets, and rings to match.
Available from Monica Vinader, this necklace cost around £310 in the Black Friday sale (paid for myself).
Positivity and Wellbeing Gift For You and Your Little One
I was previously sent this book as part of a collaboration and Pixie and I still love taking the time to colour beside each other. It contains beautiful pictures, with one side of the image being simple for a child, and the other more complex for the parent.
Such a fabulous way to connect, in a very relaxed way; the perfect mindfulness and self-care gift to enjoy together.
I hope this has given you some new ideas for mindfulness gifts for yourself and your loved ones. Have a wonderful Christmas!
