Beauty and Wellbeing Gifts to Help Busy People Take a Break

Do you have that one friend or family member who just nails life, day in, day out, but doesn’t take a break for themselves? It’s all very well to say, “you work so hard! Take a break!” (they won’t listen). Sometimes people need a little extra encouragement and some “relaxation tools” to help them switch off and unwind.

Here are a few gift ideas for those hard-working, kickass people in our lives!

A chill-out kit

Get a basket or box (one they can reuse! Try to minimize plastic or wastage). Start by adding a magazine you know they’ll love to pore over. For example: If they’re an interiors or architecture lover, find a magazine full of drool-worthy home editorials. If they love food, go with a baking or cooking mag. You get the picture! Add a box of herbal tea, their favorite chocolate, a face mask, a scented candle, nourishing bath or shower creme, and a note from you to let them know why you love them and why they deserve to take a break.

A soft throw and a book

Past a certain age, soft home furnishings just become so incredibly enticing. Fine sheets, bedspreads, duvet covers, soft towels, fluffy blankets…heavenly. If your super- busy friend is a lover of tactile things, they’ll appreciate a soft, cuddly, cozy throw blanket in a rich color. What’s more, it’s a practical gift they’ll get use out of for years to come.

Wrap it up with a good book (if they’re a reader) and an instruction note:

  • Take a bath
  • Put pajamas on
  • Make a cup of tea
  • Wrap up in new blanket
  • Snuggle up on the couch or in bed
  • Read book
  • Feel happy, loved, relaxed
  • Sleep
  • Repeat whenever needed

A journal or paint set

Some people truly relax when they are being creative, letting out their thoughts and feelings through words or colors. For the writer (or writer to-be) in your life, wrap up a beautiful journal and a luxury pen, and even a little book of poetry to get their inspiration flowing.

Art gifts

For the artist, wrap up a set of paints, a book of heavy painting paper, and a brush or two. Even if it takes them a little while to actually get round to doing it, they will have it in the back of their minds as something to look forward to.

I think there’s something special, thoughtful, and encouraging about receiving the gift of creativity. It tells the recipient that you value their wonderful mind, and that they should value it too.

A night out

And lastly…organize a good old fashioned night out. It could be dinner, drinks, and dancing, or it could be a movie night with champagne and pizza (you’re NEVER too old for a movie night-meets-sleepover).

Best gifts for busy people

Either way, it gives you and your friends time to dress up, get glammed, get together, talk about life, laugh, cry, be silly, and wind down. Provide a range of dates to choose from, lock one in, and tell them to clear their schedule and get a babysitter for the night!
