The holidays are a time for giving, and we have the perfect gift ideas for the health-conscious woman in your life! These are the 14 best wellness gifts to help her stay on track with goals, protect hormones, ease tension, and get some active relaxation. From skincare items and self-care to household products and fitness tech, we’ve got you covered.
Regular scalp massage doesn’t just feel phenomenal, but it can actually help give you a fuller-looking head of hair too. A good head massage increases circulation to the scalp and exfoliates buildup that can restrict hair growth.
Use a hand-held scalp massager or a large-toothed comb, like this beautiful jade gua sha comb. The hand-carved comb is designed to promote circulation and reduce tension, and since it’s made of jade—which is thought to be the stone of eternal youth—it brings all the good energy vibes to your hair care routine. Makes a perfect stocking stuffer!

Did you know that your indoor air is as much as 5 times more polluted than outdoor air? The air we breathe has a direct effect on detox pathways and hormonal balance. During the winter months, we’re all spending more time indoors which means it’s that much more important that the air we’re breathing is free from harmful substances such as VOCs, molds, gasses from furniture and textiles, and the buildup of harmful compounds like radon and carbon monoxide.
Blue Air has options for every size room in your house—plus their design is sleek and modern, integrating seamlessly into the look of your home.

The best way to start every day of the year is with gratitude! There are so many options for a daily wellness journal, but I love this five minute journal. It’s just the thing for those who might be hesitant to jump into more involved mindfulness and mental health practices like meditation.

A Cozy Waffle Bathrobe
Any wellness-obsessed person knows how important it is to recharge! There’s nothing better than enjoying a slow weekend morning before the rest of the family wakes up, wrapped in a soft, plush robe, and slowly sipping a cup of tea. This waffle robe from Brooklinen is made from all-natural fibers, is super absorbent so it’s great when you need to throw something on after a shower, or if you just feel like relaxing around the house. A great gift to promote relaxation.

If you filter the water you drink, what about the water coming from your shower? Depending on the quality of water coming from your shower, it could be the hidden culprit behind so many issues, including acne, hair damage, hormone imbalances, and skin irritation.
The water you shower in is so fundamental to the health of every part of your body (not to mention how your hair and skin look and feel), and luckily there are some great companies out there who feel the same way, like Jolie Skin Co.

Energy Healing Session
There’s no better way to recover from holiday stress than with an energy healing session. Energy healers are incredibly intuitive and diverse in their modes of treatment, helping to address issues like anxiety, past trauma, stress, and overall resilience. If you or a loved one is going through a transition in your life—including something like perimenopause or menopause—an energy healing session can make a huge difference in how your body and mind handle new changes.
At my clinic in Atlanta, energy healing sessions use a combination of modalities including Reiki, crystal therapy, breathwork, visualization, and essential oils to unblock stagnant energy and facilitate emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. This is the healthy gift for the woman in your life who you feel like ‘already has everything’.
