Colette’s Holiday Gift Guide!
First off, can we just say that if there’s ever been a holiday season when we all deserve to treat ourselves and each other… it’s 2020!
As I’ve been looking for gifts to treat my friends, family, and — okay, I admit it — myself, I’ve been naturally pulled towards those that help us create a cocoon of self-care and nurturing (doesn’t that sound amazing?!).
So pull up a squishy chair, tuck your pajama-clad legs underneath you, grab a mug of something warm, and let’s do some self-care gift shopping!
Colette’s Spiritual Self-Care Gift Guide
#1 Jade or Rose Quartz Roller
These pocket-sized doohickeys are all the rage these days — with good reason!
When used on your face, they’re said to help with boosting your skin’s circulation, resulting in minimized puffiness and fine lines, as well as greater elasticity and tone. Not only that but when used with your serums or other facial products, they may help serums and other skincare products do a better job of penetrating.
All I know is, they’re perfect for doing those figure 8s around your eyes to relieve stress and tension — and they’ll make anyone feel pampered!
Rose quartz is often identified with romantic love, but let it remind you of self-love and worthiness as well! Jade, meanwhile, has been prized for thousands of years and is a symbol of abundance and gratitude.
#2 Moisturizing Spa Socks and Gloves
For most of us, even if we’re regulars at the nail salons, chances are we’ve been foregoing some hand and foot care in recent months. Moisturizing spa socks and gloves can be an easy way to show these lovely body parts the appreciation they deserve.
Your poor tootsies and hands may be in need of some extra TLC — and what better way to take care of it than while I’m sleeping? (Now THAT is multitasking I can get behind!). Try some spa socks and gloves to easily moisturize your digits and keep the oil or lotion where it belongs — on your skin, not on the sheets!
This set is made with natural silicon gel, which is rich in vitamin E and mineral oils (jojoba oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, etc). Enhance the effects by adding your own favorite skin cream!
#3 Beauty Facial Masks
I know, I know — you don’t want to hear another word about MASKS. But these aren’t the ones to keep you safe (although I do have some of those to share below); these are the ones to make your skin say “aaaahhhh!” Here are some of my favorites, depending on your skin type:
Mask For Acne-Prone Skin
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Himalayan Clay Mud Mask from Majestic Pure.
Not only is it cruelty-free, but it also includes Himalayan Pink Clay, which is rich in silica and said to help improve your skin’s elasticity and promote cell renewal.
Mask For Melanin-Rich Skin
If you have darker skin, check out Buttah Skin’s Charcoal Detox Mask, created by a black-owned company.
This mask is powerful yet gentle for soft, clean and renewed skin. The activated charcoal will draw out and remove surface impurities, while Bentonite and Kaolin clays do their duty to cleanse, purify and absorb excess oil.
Mask For Anti-Aging
You’ll love Lily Sado’s “Matcha Made in Heaven” green tea mask. It’s vegan and organic, and includes avocado, parsley, coconut, green tea matcha, licorice root, to detoxify, hydrate, replenish, and balance oil production.
#4 Aromatherapy Diffuser
Just a few years ago, people would have looked at you like you were a total hippie for diffusing essential oils in your home or office… (hey, I’m used to that!). Now, thankfully, aromatherapy is mainstream, and there are tons of choices for diffusers.
An aromatherapy diffuser disperses essential oils into the air and fills your room with the smell of the oil or blend you’re using. I love the 500ml Cool Mist Dehumidifier from Anjou. The shape makes me happy, and it comes in a few different finishes, but there are so many great diffusers out there, so look for one that matches your personality or decor.
#5 Magic Hour Tea
I have so many types, from herbal to black to Darjeeling… and Magic Hour tea has them all!
How could I resist their tag line, “Magical Teas for Magical People?” They have subscription boxes, holiday collections, and more… all with a wonderful dose of mystical magic.
#6 Oracle Cards and Oracle Journal
What better gift can you give yourself — or someone else — than the gift of connection with Spirit?
Now that I’ve released a dozen decks, there’s a theme for everyone. And all of them work so well with my just-released Oracle of the 7 Energies Journal. Complete your collection, or get a dear friend started on their own path to inner guidance.
#7 Mystical Face Masks
My dear friend and talented Oracle Card artist, Jena DellaGrottaglia, created these gorgeous face masks that have her art featured on them. You have to click here to look at all of the designs. I want them all and I think you will too! (And, right now if you buy 4 you save 20% off your order.)
#8 Crystals and Energy Tools
You can’t go wrong with gifting the perfect crystal this holiday season! Whether you visit your local crystal shop or browse online, it’s so fun to see which crystals draw you in and speak to you. I love the crystals and energy tools available at Energy Muse. You can shop on their site by stone, intention, price, and more.
Also, I can’t mention crystals and ignore that so many of you have asked about my beautiful selenite wand that you see in my weekly reading videos. I got that wand from Stone Age in Glastonbury, but you can find beautiful wands and jewelry at most crystal shops.
So there you have it, an assortment of goodies to help your loved ones find peace, joy, and hope in this season of miracles. Comment below and let me know what’s on your spiritual self-care wishlist or shopping list this year!
