More and more people nowadays are becoming increasingly interested in self-help, spiritual wellness and holistic living. If there is someone special in your life that would appreciate a spiritual gift this Christmas, you may be looking for inspiration. If so, here are some great gift ideas that can help someone on their wellness journey.


Crystals have been used in the home for centuries to ward off negative spirits, attract abundance and create harmony. Crystals can also be used in healing, with many believing they can release blocked energy and change a body’s aura. Crystals are becoming more and more popular as a way of treating health holistically and generally improving your overall wellbeing. A set of crystals for the home, each with a specific purpose, would make a lovely gift. You could even personally select which crystals to give. For example, citrine is the crystal to use if you wish to manifest abundance and wealth and rose quartz can be used to create an atmosphere of calming, soothing love. A handful of new crystals along with a note about what each one offers would be the perfect gift for someone moving home or starting a new chapter in their life.

Essential Oils

Essential oils for aromatherapy are another age-old practice that is considered to have alternative health benefits. Essential oils are derived from plants, and they use smell to improve your health, and can also be applied topically to the skin for certain ailments. Some of the most common essential oils are lavender oil, which helps with stress, pain, and sleep; and tea tree oil, which can help with acne. But there are so many essential oils, each with its own amazing benefits, that a set of essential oils and an oil diffuser would make another great gift idea for someone who is interested in holistic living. If you feel like a normal bottle of oil might be too small of a gift, then you can also buy wholesale essential oils, which should be enough to last anyone for months.

Reiki Healing

If you’ve not heard of Reiki, it is a type of energy healing that originated in Japan. It is based on the idea of an unseen life force energy that runs throughout our body. Someone who practises reiki, or a Reiki therapist, uses their hands over the body to help encourage a healthy flow of this energy and promote healing. Anyone is able to learn Reiki healing from a Reiki practitioner. There are different levels of Reiki healing, but you can enrol your loved one on a weekend course for Reiki Level 1 in London. This would make a great gift idea for someone looking to start Reiki healing since they can take it further if they enjoy it enough and complete their reiki level 2 and even reiki master training.

Gratitude Journal

Journaling is becoming more popular, especially gratitude journaling. This is the practice of writing down daily what you are grateful or thankful for in your life. Studies have shown that this practice of gratitude journaling can really benefit your mental health, and in turn your physical health. It’s a great way to increase positivity in your life. When you focus on what has really gone well, it helps push to one side the things that have perhaps not gone so well. Studies have shown it also helps you sleep better and deal with stress more easily. So, a gratitude journal and a nice pen to write with is another great gift idea for someone interested in wellness.

These are just four great alternative gift ideas to give someone who is either already interested in taking a more holistic or spiritual approach to life, or for someone who is wanting to take that first step into holistic wellness.

There's nothing better than a weekend spent at a spa and total relaxation and happy thoughts is a way of life to me. It's lucky I love cats really with a name like mine! Happily married with my three fur babies to keep us company.
