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 best we can.
This will mean different things to different people depending on individual circumstances, but giving the gift of self-care and wellbeing can never be wrong, and mindfulness gifts 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 mindful journals to promote good mental health (for you and the kids) – there’s something here for everyone.
Self-Care and Mindfulness Gifts For Grown Ups
These are the gifts I’d personally be delighted to receive at any time of the year!
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!
Mindful Morning Cards
These mindfulness cards will start your morning with calm and peace, and encourage you to face the day with a healthy mindset, full of positivity.
The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse
You may think this is a kid’s book, but you’d be wrong.
This book is for everyone. It was purchased as a gift for my young children and one day it will be a special addition to their collection.
But in the meantime, while they’re too young to appreciate the valuable wisdom contained within the beautifully illustrated pages, I have it on lease and it lives in my office!
I devoured this book in a single sitting, and truly cannot recommend it highly enough.
Jar of Smiles
Colourful, thoughtful, motivational quotes for each day of the month.
If you love inspirational quotes, why not check out my list of more than 400 positive mindset quotes?
What about something to take away your aches and pains?
I was dubious of these – until I tried one myself! Check out my acupressure mat review to see how I got on.
Suffice to say, I genuinely recommend this product (the below one is a different make to mine as I’m in the UK, but the reviews are good!), and my sciatica has largely disappeared.
A Journal to Increase Your Happiness
I love this previously gifted guided journal. It’s full of undeniable wisdom, and little exercises to keep you focused and working on your wellbeing journey.
Read my review about how it can help you to achieve happiness and contentment.
Positive Affirmation Cards
Positive daily affirmations can be an incredibly powerful tool to increase self-confidence, self-esteem, and wellbeing. They’re also great for journaling.

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).
Because sometimes you need a physical prompt to help you be mindful of your fabulousness!

There are few things more mesmerising to watch than the flickering flame of a candle.
These ones come in four gorgeous marbled holders, each with a different scent:
Christmas Scented Candles!
You can’t beat the smell of Christmas during the festive period!
And you’re not imaging the relaxing benefits of enjoying the delicate perfume of your favourite candle – studies show that scents affect human psychophysiological activity!
If you’re looking for Christmassy candles rather than generic lifestyle scents, then how about these cuties?
Geometric Hanging Wall Planters
You can never have too many plants in your life, and these art deco style planters with a cracked gold finish are stunning.
I love that that you don’t need to find a lot of space for them – they hang on the wall keeping surfaces free!
I’m in the process of reorganising my office, and when I’m done, I definitely plan to treat myself to a couple of these beauties!

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’s all been put together.
As it’s a small business, the product is 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 wonderfully valuable for children.
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 I 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 powerfully positive lessons in mind.
The idea that I’m equipping my girls with valuable tools to ensure their wellbeing while they’re having fun is the icing on the cake. I’m secretly hoping Kelly will create more boxes…
Pack of Positivity, from Gibson’s Games
Perfect for anyone who needs a little lift!
A bright, vibrant 1000 piece puzzle for older children, featuring fun illustrations and cute/quirky messages of positivity – with a fun dose of puns too!
Also made from durable board that is 100% recycled, this is a truly feel-good gift, and perfect for anyone who needs a little lift.
Create Your Own Calm
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.
Color With Me, Mom!
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!
