When you love someone, you want them to be as physically and mentally healthy as possible. However, many of us fail to look out for our bodies ourselves. This means that health and wellbeing items can often make the perfect gifts for those that are struggling.

1.   CBD

CBD is increasingly popular in the UK since its legalisation and can help those who are struggling with both physical and mental health problems. CBD can help to minimize the symptoms of anxiety and depression by helping your loved one to relax. Not only this but CBD, especially in the form of CBD e-liquid, can also help to reduce any pain symptoms that your loved one experiences regularly, such as those that are caused by chronic pain conditions.

2.   Weighted Blanket

Insomnia and anxiety can affect your loved one’s wellbeing by preventing them from being able to focus and enjoy daily life. If you think that your loved one’s insomnia or anxiety is becoming too much for them, weighted blankets now make a popular gift. Weighted blankets use deep touch pressure therapy to relax the nervous system, and can feel like receiving a strong hug whenever they need it. However, when you are investing in a blanket, you should check that you get the right weight for your loved one.

3.   Books

There are many self-help books about anxiety and mental health issues, as well as physical health problems, that can help people to cope with the conditions that are impacting them and to help them remember that they are not alone. Popular crossover books include Reasons to Stay Alive and Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig, which both offer soothing insight into anxiety and depression and offer new ways of looking at the world when it becomes overwhelming.

4.   Journal

There is nothing more therapeutic than being able to write down your emotions when you are feeling particularly burdened with them, and so you should consider investing in a journal for your loved one where they can keep their feelings safe. Journaling can help your loved ones to process their emotions and anything that is troubling them, as well as to get creative with decoration and journal design.

5.   Yoga Mat

Yoga has been proven to keep you both mentally and physically healthy and can help people to recenter themselves. If your loved one is unsure about attending a yoga class or they are embarrassed to try this exercise, you should consider investing in equipment such as a yoga mat for them, which they can use to get started from the comfort of their own home.

6.   Diffuser

Aromatherapy is now a popular way of relaxing and unwinding after a stressful day, with scents such as lavender being particularly soothing. To help your family or friends to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, you should consider investing in a diffuser for them which can allow them to spread a wonderful scent around their home once they get in from work of their daily responsibilities.

7.   Water Bottle

To keep mentally and physically healthy, it is paramount that your loved ones remember to drink enough water as this can help to increase their concentration levels, to feel refreshed and energized, and to help their body to work at its optimum potential. To encourage them to check on their water intake, investing in a reusable water bottle for them can ensure that they can carry around a drink with them at all times.

8.   Recipe Book

Eating healthily and home cooking can do wonders for your mental and physical health, as it can both allow you to get the nutrients you need and be a fun way to relax and focus on doing something creative. To get your family and friends started on eating well, you should consider gifting them an easy recipe book that includes a lot of great dishes that can ensure that every meal is both delicious, quick to make, and full of good stuff.

9.   Fitness Tracker

Lastly, keeping fit is important to both stave off anxiety and depression and to keep you in shape. If you have a fitness fanatic in your household or someone that simply wants to get started, giving them a fitness tracker as a present will encourage them to keep working toward their goals and improving their times, as well as allowing them to keep track of how much exercise they are doing every single day.
