Call me a grandma, but I love to stay in, cozy up in a blanket with a cup of tea, and read. There is nothing more soothing and repairing than a self care day. Whether you’re extra stressed from work, or you just need to pamper yourself, you need self care days!

The amazing thing about self care packages is that you can personalize them to your unique needs! I recommend bringing together a few things that never fail at making you feel fantastic.

Below is a list of my 5 top self care package essentials! Feel free to tweak and exchange whatever you like. Just make sure ultimate relaxation is your top priority!

How To Make The Best Self Care Package Ever!

#1 Comfort Clothing

To make a great self care package, you have to start with ultimate comfort. There is nothing better than going home after a long day and putting on your favorite pajamas.

My favorite pajamas include, soft polar bear pajama pants, a loose comfy t-shirt, and my favorite pair of slippers.

This pair of slippers I received as a gift years ago, and I absolutely love them! They keep your feet comfortable, cozy, and warm. They are essential for the colder months!

#2 A Warm Cozy Coffee/Tea Mug

No self care package is complete without a cozy coffee or tea mug. Warm yourself from the inside out. Collect a beautiful mug that you will love using all day, every day.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am the tea queen. I love tea, and I love coffee. One of my favorite parts of the day is making myself a delicious cup of coffee in the morning before work. I would not survive very happily without it, so I make its priority.

Also, the only thing I collect are coffee mugs. To me, they’re more than a delicious liquid vessel, they’re a crucial piece of my every day comfort. You can say I’m obsessed, it’s okay.

This hand warmer mug is perfect for self care days! The mug wraps around your hand like a little hug! These mugs are perfect!

#3 A Cozy Blanket And A Plushy!

Now I didn’t say that this self care package was something you had to share with anyone! Don’t be embarrassed to reach the ultimate level of comfort! Curl up under a fuzzy blanket and give yourself something to cuddle!

I personally love the snuggle up in cozy fleece blankets. I have this cute little fleece throw that was given to me as a gift and I will never part with it!

Everyone needs a plushy blanket like this!

#4 An Essential Oil Diffuser

This piece of your self care package is super important! Essential oils can be very healing for the mind, body and spirit. I recommend you invest in a small but powerful essential oil diffuser. They are cheap, and they promote such great feelings.

Different essential oils promote different feelings. Essential oil blends are very popular too. For any ailment, I guarantee there is an oil blend you can find to help.

My all time favorite scent is jasmine. I use jasmine and lavender to promote calm and peace of mind. For a more energizing scent, I like to use citrus scents such as lime, lemon, and grapefruit.

This essential oil humidifier is perfect for at home serenity!

#5 A Great Book

Clearing your mind and taking yourself somewhere new an interesting is key! A fun and cheap way to get away is to read a book. Whether you love fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, or even comics, this is a great way to take your mind off the every day stresses of life.

I love reading fantasy and fiction. The last series I read was The 5th Wave series of three books. Ahh! It was so good. If you’ve seen The 5th Wave movie and loved it, definitely buy the series to read! You won’t be disappointed!

What do you do to repair and recharge?

  1. Loved this article! The holiday season is crazy, and it’s definitely important to take care of yourself though the madness. One thing I’d like to mention is how awesome a fleece robe can be. Instead of a cozy blanket, I prefer to wrap myself in a super soft robe (pockets!) so that I can still be mobile. Thank you for another wonderful post!
