Gift-giving is an art and when it’s thoughtful and meaningful, the craft is illuminated and very much appreciated. We all can agree the gift of wellness is a generous one considering health is wealth, says anyone who is not feeling mentally or physically well.

I want to begin by sharing this wellness gift idea list with a note of caution.

If your loved one asks for a gift that is mental wellness-related then by all means offer it around the Christmas tree, menorah, birthday cake, or any gift-giving occasion. If not, you may not want to give them a wellness gift in a public space because it may bring attention to an area they are struggling with, one they don’t want to be discussed or pointed out.

Wellness Gifts

*Sometimes the best mental health gifts are pure and simple breaks of having fun with friends, loved ones, and/or family members.

*A pure magnesium oil to soak feet in warm water every day for a half-hour.

*Mindfulness journal

*Fidget toys, rings, bracelets, or spinners
