We're Calling It: The Easiest Place to Buy Wellness Gifts Is Amazon

I really don't have to tell you that Amazon is pretty much a one-stop shop for everything. You can buy household basics like toilet paper, groceries, and cleaning supplies. There's a big selection of beauty and fashion finds. Fitness gear and activewear are well-represented on the retailer, too. And of course, you can stock up on books, games, and crafts. I'm not even going to get started on the other weird finds you can buy there (hint: a tiny house).

So, yeah, I think it's safe to say that you've got pretty much everything at your fingertips. One thing I like to shop Amazon for is gifts for friends and family. It's so easy to find something that's just perfect and thoughtful. Lately, when I've been searching for gifts, I've gravitated towards ones in the wellness space, because well, it's been a stressful time. And Amazon doesn't disappoint there. Take a look at some of the best wellness gifts on Amazon below, broken down by price point.

Under $25

Letsfit Resistance Bands ($6)

This might seem like a boring gift, but trust me, whoever you give this to is going to thank you. Not only are resistance bands great for strength training, but they're also helpful for stretching. Since a lot of us spend so much time sitting down, hunched over our laptops, these bands will provide some sweet relief.

InnoGear Essential Oil Diffuser ($14)

This might be the best-rated diffuser on Amazon (it has over 79,000 ratings and 4.5 out of 5 stars). And can you believe it's under $15? It has two misting modes, eight light colors, and an automatic shut-off function

The easiest self-care trick? A nice bath. This set has Dr Teal's famous epsom salts to soothe any tension in your body, plus a foaming bath with lavender to calm the mind.

Baimei Jade Roller & Gua Sha ($16)

This set has everything you need for a relaxing facial massage and nighttime skincare routine. A face roller can relieve muscle tension and also helps your skincare products really sink in more effectively. A gua sha tool improves circulation, with muscle tension relief, too.

Mzoo Sleep Eye Mask ($16)

This eye mask is pretty cool because it has contoured cups so there's no pressure on your eyes. It has memory foam and an adjustable strap for extra comfort.

Cliganic Essential Oils Aromatherapy Set ($19)

Essential oils just have so many benefits. They can help with sleep, stress, focus, energy, and more. This set is the ultimate starter pack, especially for EO aficionados. Included are lemongrass, rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus, orange, lavender, peppermint, and frankincense essential oils.

Floraison Facial Freeze Tools ($19)

I am obsessed with cryotherapy tools. Whenever I used them on my face, my skin looks and feels more refreshed and any puffiness is gone. These cryo sticks can be used on the face, neck, and body.

Everyone needs a water bottle, whether it's for working out, outdoor adventures, or just to make sure your hydration is on track. The Hydro Flask is insulated and will keep drinks cold or hot for hours.

A little bit of foliage is never a bad gift idea, even if your friend doesn't exactly have a green thumb. This collection contains three plants that are said to clean the air.

A candle just adds ambience to any space. This one has woody notes of bergamot, rose geranium, and patchouli.

You can't go wrong with this gift for the matcha lover in your life (especially for the friend who's trying to cut back on coffee.) MatchaBar's matcha is high quality and sourced directly from a farm in Kagoshima, Japan.

Gaiam Yoga Mat ($30)

A yoga mat is an essential workout item even if you don't practice because you can use it for other types of mat workouts. This one from Gaiam is lightweight, non-slip, and thick.

Poppi Sparkling Prebiotic Soda ($30)

You can't have probiotics without prebiotics, which act as the food source for healthy gut bacteria. Poppi's sparkling sodas contain prebiotics from agave inulin and apple cider vinegar. And they're tasty, too, with flavors like strawberry lemon, blueberry, raspberry rose, and ginger lime.

Fans of weighted blankets say that they provide so much comfort, can relieve anxiety, and help with sleep. This cotton one has seven layers and glass beads inside.

A lot of people rely on their phones to wake them up in the morning, but maybe it's time to upgrade to a real alarm clock. This high-tech one lets you customize a sleep-wake routine with soothing sounds, white noise, and lights.

Under $200

Fitbit Versa 3 ($179)

Apple Airpods Pro ($197)

I love using my AirPods Pro for at-home workouts because of their noise-cancellation features. It really helps me get in the zone. Plus, it's sweat- and water-resistant.

Hyperice Hypervolt Go ($199)

Percussion therapy devices can help with muscle recovery, tension, and soreness. They're great to use after workouts, but also whenever you're feeling a little tight or achy. The Hypervolt Go is cordless, just 1.5 pounds, and has three different speeds.
