Are you struggling to pick out the perfect gift for someone who really deserves to be spoiled? Everyone loves to be pampered with a touch of self-care once in a while. Luckily, there are a whole host of amazing gift ideas to induce relaxation that everyone will love. 

These gifts are even better if you know that one special person really needs some quality relaxation time on their own. Below, we present 7 great self care ideas you should consider when selecting gifts.

1. Bath Bombs and Salts

Any good self-care session either starts or ends with a hot soak in the bath. It soothes aching muscles and resets a racing mind. There literally is not a better way to end the week. 

Bath salts are a great choice for anyone who wants to cleanse the skin. It has exfoliating properties, as well as adding density to the water for a more enveloping feeling. They can come in a range of scents and types, often from geographical regions around the world. 

Bath bombs come in a lot of creative scents and ingredients and often have quite the wow factor. You can choose a bath bomb for any type of personality. From relaxing chocolates to traditional floral baths and wacky unicorn glitter bombs, you will find something for that extreme pamper session. 

2. Turbie Twist

After all that relaxation in a hot bath, why would you want to be stressed about getting ready? Take the fuss out of it all with the Turbie Towel. Lift that wet hair on top of your head with ease, then forget about it while you continue your pampering session. 

The Turbie Twist is a unique cotton hair towel, designed to keep even the longest, heaviest types of hair on top of your head. Available in a wide range of colors, they can suit the decor of any bathroom and fit in with the rest of your towel collection. The beauty is that whatever you decide to do, they really will not fall off. 

3. At-Home Manicure Kit

After a hard week at work, everyone could do with a manicure. If you are working in a warehouse or simply typing at the office, nails get chipped, dirty and unsightly. It can not always be plausible to book into the beauty salon in your workweek, so a home manicure is a perfect solution. 

For anyone who is not adept at painting their nails, manicure sets can be a fantastic alternative. Choose one that has slip-on transfer sheets, so they only have to file down the outsides. This makes self care easy, and in the end, they should look fantastic.

4. The Gift of Candles

A candle is a time-honored, relaxing gift that is an essential part of any self-care routine. Of course, you can pamper yourself under the glow of your room lights, but the low light and scent of candle wax create an atmosphere of relaxation that is unparalleled. All you have to do is choose the right gift. 

Candles come in a wide variety of types. Scented candles are always a good choice, as they add an element of aromatherapy to the pamper session. Would the person you are giving a gift to prefer tropical tones, or soft sandalwood and floral scents?

Some candles even give the crackle associated with an open fire.  Nothing could be cozier on a winter night than settle down to relax, the noise of a wood-burning fire in the background. 

5. Tea Selections

Tea is a great leveler. It can pick you up when you are down, yet calm and soothe when the mind and body are racing. A tea selection is a great accompaniment to any hamper or ideal as a self-care gift on its own. 

The range and flavors of teas can be overwhelming when you are trying to choose some as a gift. You could go seasonal, with festive blends or tropical flavors for the summer. Alternatively, you could opt for one of the many health benefit teas, such as ginseng or green tea.

If your recipient is having health problems, try to match the tea to their ailment. Certain teas are good for joint and muscle pains. Others are ideal for anyone suffering from the symptoms of pregnancy. 

6. Massage Self Care Ideas

At the end of a week, muscles can be really taught and pulled. Bad posture, heavy lifting, and the daily grind can all reap havoc on a person's body. However, getting those knots out can be tough. 

Not everyone has the time to book in for a massage each week, but they can stretch and massage the aches out in their own home. All they need is a handy massage device. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, and can also be designed for specific areas of the body such as the lower back and neck. 

7. Slippers and Robes

When it comes to slippers and robes, the fluffier and warmer they are, the better. Can anything beat kicking off the work clothing and wrapping yourself up in a snug gown and warm slippers? It gets even better if they have been heated on the radiator, or are fresh from the clothes dryer. 

You can get slippers and robes in a whole host of styles and colors. Of course, you could go upmarket and opt for silks and lighter gowns. However, for the full pamper session, make sure they are padded, soft, and warm.
