I've been combining beauty and wellness in my gift guides because I think these two go hand in hand. After all what is the point of looking good if you're unwell. I tried to curate picks that range from the affordable to the luxe. As with all my other gift guides, I'm including some selections which happen to be personal favorites (2, 3, 14, 16, 18, 19, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29) as well as a few that might also be on my own wish list (5 & 8).  For the beauty items, I made a conscious effort to choose products that are cruelty-free and formulated without any questionable ingredients. Don't miss my other gift guides!

With an introduction to the wellness eco system and the 6 pillars within it, this journal will help anyone focus on wellness on a daily basis. Useful articles and prompts are included as well as space to log intentions, reflections, practices to help  start and end each day with a fresh mindset and take note of the things that make you feel good.

Designed for everyday use, these compression socks provide graduated pressure to improve blood flow and circulation and reduce swelling and fatigue. The cushioned footbed helps absorb shock as you move while breathable bamboo fabric wicks moisture away from the skin.

The portable version of Therabody's massager which comes with three attachments and three speeds is a powerhouse proven to relieve aches and pains and improve recovery that you can take on the go. We bought one for almost 40% off during Black Friday and it's even better than our old massage gun. It's great for smoothing out kinks and knots anywhere on the body. Could've really used this when we were in Rhode Island where we walked so much every day.

It's not sticky or greasy and imparts the right amount of moisture to soothe my skin. 

With a smooth, creamy texture won't dry into an uncomfortable hard shell, this mask works to minimize the appearance of pores and draw out the deepest impurities while effectively balancing the skin's natural oils. This mask works as it claims and for a clay mask it is quite soothing and hydrating.

Another one of my favorite products of this year, this cream is such a luxurious indulgence for smooth, glowing skin.

Formulated with a special 7-year aged vinegar, plant-based squalane from olives, olive fruit extract and niacinamide, this form-fitting cellulose sheet mask works to help to hydrate, moisturize and revitalize skin while also helping to improve skin tone and texture.

Hi Rowena, I loved your wellness-inspired gift guide, my favorites were the set of mini butters to hydrate hands and body, I could definitely use something like that at this time of year. I was also curious about the wireless hand massager.
