I’ll admit that holiday gifts for myself don’t usually make it onto my shopping list. In ordinary times, I set my sights on finding the perfect presents for family and friends. But this year, after months of pandemic parenting, remote schooling, and surging anxiety, I’m ready to treat myself to something guaranteed to make me smile.

Of course, I’m finding that turning my gift-giving powers on myself requires some creative thought. The first step? Tossing away any notion of what you need (no batteries or shower curtains, please!) and instead focus on what is sure to charm, soothe, and delight you. In preparation for the gift-giving season ahead, I hit the virtual shops to find 11 beautiful gifts to add a much-needed dose of comfort and ease into each day.

Read on for 11 truly special gifts to give yourself this year. 


Relief Cream

Many of The Everymom editors swear by Equilibria's CBD products, especially this Relief Cream. Created to help you feel both relaxed and revived, this topical salve soothes the daily aches and pains all moms experience while chasing after or being climbed all over by our little ones. Many users also credit the cream for helping to alleviate pain from period cramps or migraines. Adding this to my holiday wishlist this year for its many wellness uses—plus, the jar lasts long enough that you'll definitely get your money's worth.

Little Spoon

Meal Delivery Service for Babies and Toddlers

Feeding my toddler is fast becoming the most stressful part of motherhood, which is why I love the idea of gifting myself organic, nutritious, and readymade meals she will actually eat. Little Spoon offers two subscription delivery plans for beginning eaters and growing kids—both of which promise clean, healthy, and flavorful foods to fill even a picky eater's plate. This year, when life has been so hectic, setting up a meal delivery plan I can feel good about is a gift in the truest sense of the word.

Rae Wellness

Sleep Capsules

2020 may as well be called The Year of Stress-Induced Insomnia. As we head into the holidays, I'm eager to bring in a few simple rituals that will help me roll out of bed actually feeling well-rested the next day. That's why I'm tucking these Sleep Capsules from Rae Wellness into my own stocking. When it comes to supplements, consider me picky: I look for clean, pure ingredients without any artificial fillers or harmful preservatives. Rae's Sleep Capsules fit the bill—and I love that a portion of every purchase helps fund a non-profit aimed at inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

Cotton Pajama Set

Nothing says comfort quite like a sumptuously soft matching set of pajamas. Could it be that the cozier the PJs, the sweeter the dreams? I'd like to think so. This year, I'm ready to retire my ragged sweats in favor of more stylish sleepwear.

Organic Tea Hair Rinse

Looking to give your hair a little TLC? This organic tea rinse looks as lovely as it is useful: use weekly to strengthen locks and soothe a dry or irritated scalp. Rinse it out in the shower, or use it as a leave-in conditioner to nourish your hair throughout the day.

Finn Hair Clip

Luxe clips that work to disguise two-day-old hair are a must-have mom accessory for me. Maximum chicness with minimal effort? That's my style mantra as a busy and really, really tired mom these days.

Wilding Beauty

Empress Gua Sha Stone

This facial stone is meant to inspire a self-care ritual to relax tension, and smooth and plump skin. Gua sha is a simple, safe practice based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and while I can't speak to its supposed Botox-like effects, I do find it supremely soothing.

Body & Bath Meditation Oil

These aromatherapeutic oil blends are just plain pretty. Of course, it doesn't hurt one bit that they're crafted to soothe, nourish, and moisturize too.


Pure Silk Pillowcase

A quality silk pillowcase has transformed the idea of beauty sleep for me—especially as I never get as many Z's as I should. What can you expect from this slippery smooth pillowcase? Tamer morning hair, for one, and a smoother, crease-free complexion.

Vanity Planet

Ionic Facial Steamer

Looking to bring the spa experience home? You can do just that with this luxe facial steamer designed to hydrate and detoxify your skin while simultaneously helping you feel totally relaxed and zen.


Cashmere Infinity Scarf

There's nothing quite as luxuriously cozy as a classic cashmere scarf. I'm banking on this go-with-anything style to take this winter's loungewear up a notch.
