2020 has been a turbulent year. It’s given all of us time to really reflect on our lives and what makes us tick. From a new found love of home exercises or long countryside walks right through to enjoying mindfulness sessions or additional time spent with our loved ones.
Wellbeing should be at the top of everyone’s priority list. Looking after ourselves and others will help to keep our health and happiness at a good level.
To help your loved ones manage their wellbeing this festive season, we’ve rounded up the very best Christmas gift ideas.
Stocking fillers for wellbeing and mindfulness
- Affirmation cards
These nifty cards are a great way to tell someone you care. Every day, the recipient can read a motivational card to get them started on a great path.
- Candles or diffusers
Everyone loves the soothing scent of a beautiful candle, and the soft flickering of candlelight. The perfect accompaniment to a moment of mindfulness.
- Reusable water bottle
Reusable bottles are a great way to ensure you stay hydrated throughout the week. Particularly in the winter months, it’s important not to forget to keep sipping.
- Pillow sprays
For those struggling to sleep, pillow sprays can be the ideal way to drift off. They’re not too expensive, either, making pillow sprays a great stocking filler.
- Fruits and nuts
If your loved one is focussing on their physical health, you may not want to give them a box of chocolates! Instead, hunt out a tasty gift of mixed fruits and nuts.
- Wellbeing journal
Whether you opt for a colouring book, journal or self help guide, a book is a great stocking filler for someone wanting to better manage their wellbeing.
Wellbeing gifts under £30
- Recipe book
Who doesn’t love a recipe book? Find a book that suits your friend’s taste and let them know you’re thinking about them.
- Essential oil set
Essential oils are a great way to help people relax and enjoy a moment of mindfulness.
- Luxury bath bombs
Baths are rising in popularity. If your friend loves a soak, treat them to a bath set so they can enjoy a luxury experience.
- Home cinema kit
You don’t have to splash out big time to enjoy an experience with a loved one. Buy a new DVD, popcorn and pop and settle in for an at home film night (government guidance dependent!)
- Wireless headphones
Whether your friend likes working out, or they listen to music while they’re cooking or reading, wireless headphones are a treat for the ears for those looking to tune out during quiet times.
Wellbeing Christmas gifts under £50

Yoga mats, weights, gym equipment… there are thousands of options out there for your fitness friend.

Give your loved one an experience to look forward to. Purchase a gift card for the future, so you can both enjoy spending quality time together next year.
- Crystal jewellery
Not only does crystal jewellery look great, many argue crystals have healing properties. Do your research and choose a crystal that suits your friend.
- Stylish sleepwear
You can never have too many snuggly winter clothing, right? Slippers, eyemasks and pjs are firm favourites this festive season.
- Food subscription for the year
Ensure your loved one sticks to their healthy eating resolution way into 2021 by buying them a food subscription for healthy snacks.
The main event – Christmas gifts over £100
- A spa stay
Spa trips can be expensive, but they’re well worth it if you can take some time out to relax and enjoy quality time with your loved ones.
- Gym membership
One thing that often puts people off going to the gym is the monthly expense. You can ease this concern by buying a monthly membership for your friend or family member.
- A fine dining experience
Fine dining is a wonderful way to enjoy mindful eating – cherishing each delicious mouthful.
Fitbits and Apple Watches can be particularly pricey but, for fitness fanatics, they can be an important bit of kit!
