Fun Fact: I used to work in a gift shop. I’ve always had a bit of a knack for choosing thoughtful gifts. Call it a superpower. But people would come in and tell me a little about their loved one, and I’d help them choose the perfect gift. And often, they would come back and tell me it was a hit!
So, I’ve thought long and hard about what the perfect gifts would be for women after a year like this one. I mean, 2020, need I say more? A global pandemic. Political tensions. Kids home from school. Families unable to see each other. Hugs have been banned in the UK for months.
So, I’ve looked through Amazon with a fine tooth comb and found the top 5 products that would help your loved one start 2021 strong and feel oh-so-loved!
So, without further adieu, here’s the list:

Light therapy lamp
This year has been intense. The whole world has been through at least one lockdown. Many of us have not been able to go on vacation and we’ve all had much less time in the sun.
The result? Most people will suffer with SAD this winter. What is SAD, you ask?
It’s a type of depression you suffer in winter or darker months. Light therapy has been scientifically proven to help. The problem is, a lot of the sad lamps are too expensive for most people to invest in. But I found a great affordable one that is portable, powerful and has 3 light modes so you can adjust the intensity. This baby should be in every home to get us through the winter of discontent and come out strong.

If your loved one suffers with chronic pain or a long-term illness, they will love and appreciate this super-soft, snuggly blanket that has healing thoughts printed on it. Flowers dies, chocolates get demolished within seconds, but this is a thoughtful gift that can last a lifetime.
Whenever your loved one is feeling down, they can wrap up in this blanket and feel your love again and again. It comes in 5 carefully-chosen colours that all have different meanings. The pink one is my favourite.

Good Days Start With Gratitude: A 52 Week Guide To Cultivate An Attitude Of Gratitude: Gratitude Journal
The art of gratitude can take some time to master, but after a week or so, you’ll have trained your brain to identify the blessings in your life.
This is fundamental for a more positive and uplifting perspective. There’s an old saying that goes, life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react.
I have been keeping a gratitude journal on/off for the last year or two and the weeks that I diligently use mine are so much better than the weeks I forget. I love this journal and know it would make a beautiful gift without breaking the bank!

Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask Scented with Lavender for Face and Body
My friend and I went to the spa and had a Dead Sea mineral mud mask experience. It was hilarious. We covered ourselves head to toe in mud and sat in a tiny steam room for 40 minutes. There was a lot of giggling.
That mud got EVERYWHERE.
But once we showered off and got dressed. WOW. My skin…I was as smooth as a newborn baby.
Now, don’t just go for any old brand, you need the spa quality. I love this one because it’s scented with lavender and makes the whole experience so soothing, that by the time you’re done using it, you’re as cool as a cucumber.
