“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.”—Anonymous
No, loving ourselves does not only mean to pamper ourselves with gifts, but this can be the initial step to your self-love. But then, you can gift yourself only when you accept what you are, accept the reality of the situation of life you are in and acknowledge your needs. The feeling of contentment may come with achievements. However, success majorly arrives when you consider self-love as the path. Self-love may take many forms but for now, let’s just check our demons and stick to pampering ourselves with some fascinating gifts as the first step.
1. An expensive dress –
This has to be on the top priority list. That expensive dress we always wanted to buy. Don’t wait because this is the right time to dig in from your savings and finally buy it. It may dig a small hole in your pocket but don’t worry, it will feel amazing. You may want to do it again and list down your term goals and start saving again.
2. A kit of your favorite drink
Buy a coffee hamper, a tea bag set, or a bottle of wine with that sleek wine glass and give your senses an elation. Wake up in the morning and look forward to your romance with your coffee or tea. Walk into evenings with the company of the sensual wine. A little romance will not harm, isn’t it?
3. A humidifying oil diffuser
Oil diffusers, or aromatherapy diffusers are meant to help you unwind after a rigorous day. They release aromatic essential oils into the air filling the air with natural fragrance. They say that natural living is beneficial towards health. An essential oil diffuser is a fair way to bring natural elements around you and derive aromatherapy benefits.
4. A painting for home décor
Paintings need not necessarily be an embellishment to your walls, but they also bring us joy. First of all, we feel good when we wake up and go to sleep surrounded by human excellence. Several spiritual paintings like a Buddha wall painting or any other paintings of deities that evoke spirituality embalming our bruised soul.
5. Adopt a pet
Pets bring us an immense feeling of love and being loved. They never fail to make us feel special. Pick your favorite pet, a cat, a dog, or those cute little love birds, and see how alive you feel in their company. Pets can be a great way to mend your soul and keep going on the path of loving yourself.
6. A plant for your small garden
If you love gardening, then go for a new plant as an addition to your plant family. A new member always brings us joy. You can even try giving a new look to your garden by changing the positions of the plants or going for fresh home decorative vases.
7. A trip that you always wanted
We all need that break at some point in our lives when we can just relax and be one with nature. Gift yourself with a trip that will take you closer to the serene environment. But then, if you are an adventure lover, you can always go for adventure trips where you can get a nice dose of adrenalin rush.
8. Body essentials
There is hardly any path of self-love that does not involve taking care of your physical well-being. From head to toe, treat your body with good products that feel great on your skin, hair, nails, and don’t forget to give that extra shine to your teeth as well.
9. Himalayan salt lamp
Salt lamps liberate a warm orangey glow that sets a different aura to the room. Not only that, it is said to release calming elements to soothe your aching senses. They also act as an air purifier by reducing allergens present in the air inside your house. So, this can be a great gift. Especially if you are looking for something that helps to relax and has a calming effect.
10. A portable meditation cushion
Not only your body but your soul needs some rejuvenation. Gift yourself with this portable meditation cushion and get started with your meditations. Meditations help in relaxation, and this cushion intends to make you remain seated during your meditation sessions.
11. An adjustable bamboo bathtub tray
For some soothing time in the bathtub, set this adjustable tray made of bamboo on your bathtub. It will help you to lay back and relax. Keep your drink, your book, or even a gadget on it and pamper yourself as long as you wish.
12. At-home massage gun
A pleasant message is always good for your relaxation. But then not every time we can visit the professional massager. At home, a minigun will help you take a message whenever and wherever you want. So, release all your stress and stay cool.
