The Best Pampering Gifts for the Stressed & Selfless

Updated by Timothy Paradis

For all those who think that self-care is a divine responsibility, we couldn’t agree more! No one should be made to feel anything shy of incredible for relishing time spent soaking in a bath-salt infused bubble bath, and ritualistically slathering on the body butter afterward. The fact is, spa day enthusiasts and people who love to be pampered appreciate quality when they see (or smell or touch) it.

Here at Cratejoy, pampering is a profession that’s taken very seriously. Splurge-worthy care packages and pampering gift boxes make great gifts for so many on your list. Treat a new mom to a much-needed relaxation gift or surprise your best friend with a best-selling spa gift basket. When you choose a home spa gift for a loved one, you encourage them to take a breather from the day-to-day routine. Here are some of our fave gift ideas that are guaranteed to spoil in all the right ways!
