This company always has pretty much everything. If you're like me and others I know, you walk into Target with one thing in mind and walk out with a few bags full of cute decor and new scarves. Shopping online is becoming more popular and frequent with consumers today, so shopping at Target online for gift ideas may help you save money in the long run! Check out some of the holiday self-care gift options below, and always check for online coupons! ;)

How To Create and Gift a Self-Care Kit

Have you heard of a self-care kit, or thought about making your own? I'd definitely encourage making your own self-care kit, but what about making a self-care kit for someone else (or at least starting theirs)?

Self-care kits can come in any shape or form, because they are designed to be specifically beneficial to the person using it! So create your kit using whatever container large or small, and add or remove any of the following suggestions, as long as the kit will help you take care of yourself!

What To Include When Starting Someone Else's Self-Care Gift Kit:

1. Cute journal [Example]

2. Pencils & pens

3. Happy pictures

4. Quotes & words of encouragement [Example]

5. Lotion [Example]

6. Face mask & Eye Mask [Example]

7. Essential Oils [Example]

8. Fuzzy Socks [Example]

9. Meditation Mat [Example]

What You Could Also Add To Your Own Self-Care Kit:

  • Photos that make you happy

  • Books that make you happy

  • Poems you like to read

  • Floss

  • Snacks (not binge-worthy snacks)

  • Dried flowers

  • Other beauty/spa products

  • Add a theme to your kit!
