This year, I’m looking forward to cutting out some of the fluff and social obligations that can come along with the holiday season, and instead just spending the holidays at home feeling cozy, merry, and bright. If you’re in the same boat, then look no further for the best cozy beauty and wellness offerings to give and get this year. Ahead—my 12 picks for savoring an intimate holiday season at home.
Cashe Maria Cashmere Joggers
Every Christmas Eve, my family and I have a little tradition of gifting each other something cashmere. This year, I’m giving everyone these cozy cashmere joggers for us to all wear together while we spend the evening watching our favorite movies (and eating our favorite home-cooked foods) of the season.
The White Company Hydrocotton Robe
To me, nothing feels homier than a giant, fluffy bathrobe, and this ribbed style by The White Company is truly the softest one I’ve found. Made of a “hydrocotton” towel material, it’s incredibly absorbent (perfect for post-shower), but cozy enough for 24/7 wear. I recommend sizing down—I’m 5′ 1″ and usually wear a medium, but the small fits perfectly (and is still slightly oversized).
The holidays can be stressful, and we all cope differently. Some of us are moving our bodies a lot more than usual, and some of us are spending significantly more time on the couch. One is not better than the other (these are stressful times, and everyone’s response is warranted). But either side you take, the Theragun is the perfect way to give your body some T.L.C. Whether you’re feeling sore from your home workouts or experiencing muscle tightness from living in close quarters, owning a Theragun gives you the excuse to spend a few minutes connecting with your body each day.
Ritual Vitamins Membership
By now you probably know that you’re supposed to take a multivitamin everyday, but chances are the idea doesn’t exactly bring excitement to mind. This was me until I discovered Ritual. Before I discovered these little gold beauties, the vitamins I tried made me nauseous, left an Earthy (in a bad way) aftertaste, and felt like sandpaper going down my throat. Ritual vitamins are precisely the opposite—they’re smooth, don’t leave my stomach feeling uneasy, and leave a delightful minty aftertaste. Trust me and go for the membership so you or your gift recipient will get a new 30-day supply each month.
Capri Blue Jumbo Candle
It’s the biggest candle I’ve ever seen—need I say more? Lighting a luxe candle is my favorite way to make an evening at home feel special, and the holidays are certainly no exception. If you need me, I’ll be treating this candle like an advent calendar and lighting it every night until Christmas.
Lush Winter Wonderland Gift Set
A long bath is one of my favorite ways to shut the world out and self-care (and where I often have some of my best ideas). So this year, I’m gifting myself this Relax set from Lush featuring the brand’s best-selling lavender-infused products—Dream Cream, Sleepy lotion, the Twilight bath bomb, and the French Kiss Bubble Bar.
NuFace Trinity Complete Facial Toning Kit
I’ve fully rediscovered my obsession with the NuFace this year. With regular use, the results are just as noticeable as my favorite professional microcurrent facial (but for the cost of two in-office facials, I can give myself a microcurrent treatment whenever I want).
Hatch Cashmere Sock Bundle
To me, there are few things that feel more luxurious than finishing off an at-home pedicure with a pair of cashmere socks. Even though the holidays might look a bit different this year, this is one way I’m looking forward to making a night-in feel all the more special.
Briogeo Detox + Repair Kit
Since discovering Briogeo, my hair has never looked healthier. The scalp scrub-shampoo hybrid and classic deep conditioner are two of my favorite products from the brand, and this holiday they’re available together.
Gilded Body Brush
Ideal for the wellness fiend in your life, Gilded’s Marble Body Brush fits perfectly in the palm of your hand for an elevated, effective dry brushing session. Each brush is hand-made, from the marble paddle to the dense bristles, so to have one is to truly own a work of art.
