My 2020 Wellness Buyers Guide

By Gwen Dawkins

I don’t know about you, but after the doozy of a year we’ve had, I just want to feel comfy right now. Since it looks like most of us will be cocooning over the next few months, here are some gift ideas for wellness and wellbeing.

A Good Soak

A warm mineral bath helps calm the body and reduces inflammation. I like to add these to my bath before bed:

Loungewear & Pajamas 

We have a new Covid-spawned term in our family, “house pants!” 

I’m not into nightgowns. Instead, I’m a classic pajama girl. In winter, especially, I like my legs to remain covered and warm while I sleep. 

Peaceful Readings

I keep these books by my bedside. They offer brief and uplifting thought-provoking passages to read before bed or in times of contemplation: 

Flowering Facial Mists

For a quick spritz of good vibes only, (plus anti-aging hyaluronic acid):

  • I tried this Daily Essential’s Kit by Tata Harper. It absolutely makes me feel like I’m at the spa. In fact, I’m totally hooked on the amazing aroma of the  Hydrating Floral Essence –– it’s the last step in my bedtime skincare routine. 

Better Sleep

I’m a terrible sleeper. When my head hits the pillow, I’m asleep in less than five minutes. The problem is that I rarely stay asleep all night. However, these products have made a noticeable, positive difference for me:

Gratitude Journals

Even in the worst of times (which these are not!), finding things to be grateful for lift our spirits by reminding us about what we love and are thankful to have in our lives: 

  • I like the simple, classic design of this one –– not too frilly or flowery.
  • A friend gifted this book to me, Do One Thing That Makes You Happy.
  • An irreverent option that speaks to my inner and outer smart alec, Let That Sh*t Go: A Journal for Leaving Your Bullsh*t Behind and Creating A Happy Life.
