Here at The Sister Project, self-care is a top priority as we are all about mindful cozy wellbeing.
Ever since I was young, I loved a good self-help book, yoga, time in nature, daily wellness rituals, and different potions and tools to help me feeling optimal.
As a yoga instructor, I live in the land of self-care, but even so, occasionally I slip off the path and lose sight of my own self-care.
When this happens, I can’t beat myself up over it. On the contrary, I like to acknowledge that I actually sensed I was lacking self-care and need to tend to some wellness needs of my own.
Wellness rituals I like to partake in: warm baths accompanied by bath salts, CBD, yoga, exercise, facial treatments, a good night’s sleep, meditation, and being mindful of other’s (and my own) well-being during a pandemic in the form of masking up.
I thought I’d share tried and true ways to help you gift the gift of self-care to a loved one.
Let’s dive in!
1.The Art of Showing Up 2. Weighted Blanket 3. slip Silk Mask 4. Meditation Cushion 5. LUXXEIHONOR Non-toxic Candle 6. Bath Caddy 7. Gua Sha Stone 8. Bala Ankle/Wrist Weights 9. Equilibria CBD 10. Jade Yoga Mat
I came about this book on a wellness site I frequent. It’s thought of as, “a revolutionary guide to friendship and self-care for those who feel alone”.
I’m all about a good self-help book, especially one that will have folks feeling less alone as we seal the deal on 2020.
A weighted blanket is the perfect gift for anyone who struggles to get some Zzz’s. It’s basically like a thunder jacket that some owners use for their dogs, but for humans. Or perhaps like a nighttime cacoon.
My husband suffers from sleep issues and this blanket doesn’t cure all of his ailments, but it most definitely helps them subside.
Never in a million years would I imagine adding a face mask to a gift guide, but alas, this is our reality so go with the flow I must.
I received this exact mask for my birthday from one of my dearest friends, Devon, and am absolutely in love with it. It’s partial fashion, partial protection. The best of both worlds I suppose. I love that it has a bendable noice apparatus so that it securely frames my face. I highly recommend it.
A meditation cushion is such a thoughtful gift because you are giving someone the physical object they will sit upon while they tend to some very important business.
They say that lighting a candle is a very mindful act. To witness a flame come about is often followed by even just a moment of watching it dance.
An all-natural, non-toxic is a truly lovely gift for someone you love. LUXXE HONOR has stunning options along with their line of non-toxic home products and skincare products. I particularly love their lemon-grass dry shampoo as well.
If you have a special someone who loves baths but does not have a bath caddy…well, you’re about to rock their tub-taking world.
The ritual of taking a bath goes back many moons with humans taking public baths and personal baths to all sorts of extravagant, next levels. This caddy will do that for your person.
To really amp sh*t up, head to Nourish + Co for a Cozy Set which includes the most gloriously and seasonally scented bath salts I have ever sniffed along with a body butter that will have your skin feeling obnoxiously hydrated. A beautiful gift for a healthcare worker in your life.

This is for the beauty junkie in your life. It’s an ancient technique to massage the face for a more rejuvenating feel and look. Gua Sha-ing is so relaxing and feels extraordinary.
These weights were a game-changer for me during the first lockdown. I wore them everywhere I walked, during yoga, during the day home while cleaning…basically anytime I was moving. I was taking as much help as I could get to try and keep off the Covid 19.
I own and love the 2lb version of Balas.
CBD is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s a wonderful way to help aid in sleep, calm stress, and soothe body aches. The human that receives this gift from you will kiss your feet for offering such beautifully zen vibes. Their holiday collection of gifts have excellent options.
