2020 Gift Guide: Health & Wellness

If there was ever a year to remember to put your health and wellness first, 2020 is definitely the year. There was a lot to process as we tried to navigate the “new normal,” and it seemed like our limited energy was going in every direction, the least of which was ourselves and our own well-being. If you can relate, we’re betting someone you know can too. We hope with this gift guide, you’ll find something that will help your giftee feel rejuvenated, revitalized and refreshed for the new year. (And yes, you can definitely be your own giftee. #treatyourself)

Everyday Oil \\\ starts at $14
For the longest time, Everyday Oil only made one product, its Everyday Oil (it recently expanded its offerings to include two hand sanitizers). The Everyday Oil comes in the brand’s mainstay blend or an unscented version, but trust us, the original scent is incredibly aromatherapeutic because of its essential oils blend of palo santo, lavender, geranium and clary sage. You can use it as a body oil, face oil, hair oil, even as a facial wash!

If you’re still undecided or haven’t found the right gift, there’s one universal gift that is well-liked by friends, family, colleagues, and kids alike: the Design Milk gift card.
