As the winter months drag on and the global pandemic continues to force much of the world to remain indoors, it can be easy to start to feel disconnected. One way to improve your mood is to make a wishlist of some of your favorite products and gifts you hope to receive for your next special occasion.
Even if you aren’t purchasing anything now, it can be a fun way to spend an afternoon, and you can find some things to save for and look forward to. Whether you are making a wishlist to share with others or just for yourself, read on to learn about four great gifts you should make sure to include.
1. Cozy Loungewear
Now that we are spending more time at home than ever, it makes sense to splurge on some cozy clothes to wear around the house. While you might want to stick to clothes that inspire productivity for work, sometimes you want to take advantage of being able to lay in bed with some sweatpants on. With the cold weather sweeping across most of the United States, staying warm is more important than ever too, so consider adding some fuzzy socks and a few comfortable sweatshirts to any list of must-buys or most wanted presents.
2. CBD Products
CBD, or cannabidiol, has become more popular than ever over the past few years and is now incorporated in products from edibles to joints to tinctures and oils. As CBD enters into the mainstream, high-profile investors and celebrities are starting to get involved too. Nicole Kidman, an Academy Award-winning actress, known for hit movies like Moulin Rouge and Eyes Wide Shut, recently launched her own CBD product line.
Kidman tried topical CBD products after an ankle injury and became interested in their potential for consumers, who already rave about its effects. If you have not given CBD a try before now, it’s the perfect time to check out the new wellness trend.
Jewelry makes almost every list when it comes to identifying gifts to splurge on, and for a good reason. Not only is it incredibly popular as a gift, but fine jewelry can also be saved and passed down. Necklaces can be both practical to compliment an outfit for work or an event or just a fun way to indulge in buying something special for yourself.
It’s worth making sure you know what metals you’re allergic before you pick out anything to add to your wishlist; you don’t want to find something you love and then put it on, only to develop skin irritation or other health issues. It’s best to stick to high-quality metals like sterling silver and solid gold if you have any doubt.
Greenery can make a perfect present if you spend a lot of time at home and are interested in the hobby. Start with something simple and easy to take care of, like a succulent or some basic herbs to grow in the kitchen, and you can move on from there to plants that require more involved care. Like many other products, determining if you have any allergies or sensitivities is a good idea before you move forward. There’s nothing more unpleasant than being stuck sneezing or with itchy, watery eyes at home.
With everything going on in the world, it’s relaxing and enjoyable to make a wishlist of some products that would make you happy. You can go as big, or as small, as you want; the important thing is to give yourself something to look forward to and find new things to get excited about. A list can also provide practical benefits for anyone who plans to buy you a present for a birthday or holiday. It can be awkward to ask, so offering various options at different price points can make the process simpler for everyone.
Whether you are making a list for an upcoming special occasion or are just looking to find ways to treat yourself, now is the perfect time to focus on your comfort and wellness and prioritize presents that facilitate better self-care.
