1. Happiness Is… 500 Ways to Be in the Moment Book, $9.73

Books, in general, are a great gift idea for everyone who needs a little me-time. However, this book, in particular, is a very nice option. It’s actually not a proper reading book: it basically includes a bunch of self-care oriented quotes, each of which is paired with a cute drawing. I actually have the other version of this book (Happiness Is… 500 Things To Be Happy About) which is more on the uplifting note. And personally, I love it because of how easily it can cheer you up when you’re having a bad day.

2. Chesapeake Bay Candle Mind & Body, Balance + Harmony, $9.99

Promising review: “This candle smells absolutely amazing! I have burnt it for hours and not much of the wax is gone. They say scent can help you relax and this is so true with the smell of this candle . I have put it in the bathroom during a bath and it truly helped me relax and unwind before bedtime. I also have burned this in the living room and the smell radiates throughout the living room, kitchen and hallway. The scent is not too strong but just enough for you to feel relaxed. Chesapeake bay candles are the best and last for a long time. I plan on ordering more to give as gifts this holiday season. ” – Rebecca

This is basically the perfect stocking filler or great if you want to put together a nice little gift basket. You could pair it with a nice mug, some coffee, or even some homemade cookies.

Promising review: “These are AMAZING. I’ve never used a creamer that had such a pure essence of flavor as these do. I love that they’re not sweetened so I can adjust to my taste. All three flavors so good and well balanced. I’m officially a convert, I won’t use anything else in my coffee and tea! I wish they came in bigger containers, but the flavor is worth the higher price.” – Shanyn Doan
