Best Self Care Gifts To Experience

Hi, I thought i would update this blog post as we are in the season of love with valentines round the corner! Love is not just about giving love to or receiving love from another person, you can can give love to yourself! Self care is very necessary.

It is always beneficial to treat yourself well, giving yourself some pamper time away from the usual daily grind of life!

Here is a list of some of my ideas of self care gifts you can give to yourself, a friend, a family member or your significant other!


A spa is a great way to unwind from the daily routine and some say monotony of everyday living. You can choose to indulge in a spa for one day, a weekend or even longer. Whichever way you are guaranteed to come out feeling much more relaxed than when you went in.

If you are in the London area why not try The Spa at InterContinental London – The O2 with it's host of different spa packages ranging from a spa pedicure taster day to a luxury champagne spa afternoon tea package, they have something to suit everyone.

Reiki is energy healing and involves the gentle laying of hands on or above chakra points in the body helping the client to feel relaxed and to work on physical and emotional issues that may be present.

Book a 'distant' reiki session with me at View2succeed if you want to experience a relaxing and healing therapy session.

Self Care Books / Gratitude Journals

Taking time out for a few minutes each day to read self help books helps to remind you how great you are, if you forget or have a bad day!

There are an array of helpful books offering helpful tips to improve yourself and your life.

It is also an idea to make use of journals to write down your thoughts and feelings and gratitude journals are great for noting down the current things you are grateful for in life and listing future desires and goals.

Afternoon Tea

Having afternoon tea is a lovely indulgent way to spend a couple of hours relaxing having scones and sandwiches washed down with either traditional tea or a glass of Prosecco.

Try afternoon tea at Number Sixteen, a town house hotel in the heart of South Kensington, London. This is a great venue offering tea in their orangery or private garden.
