Treat hardworking beloveds to a wellbeing hamper and bestow the gift of repose.

A card or bunch of flowers doesn’t always cut it when it comes to gifting. Sometimes we need that something to send to a loved one to really show we’re thinking of them. Whether they’re in need of some moral support, they’re having a tough week/month/year, suffering a loss or recovering from an illness, a simple pick-me-up or self-care treat can be that little TLC by post that helps them get back on track. This week we round-up seven of the best wellbeing hampers to help people sleep better, switch off or feel connected, from big brands to indie retailers.

Toast


Wellbeing Basket, £99


This artisan edit of well-being goodies from Toast comes in a hand-woven seagrass basket, filled with thoughtful products chosen to ‘enrich and fulfil’. A ceramic beaker and loose-leaf tea invite you to slow down, while nurturing botanical face and body oils from Devon-based Trill Farm help you connect mind and body. There’s a body scrub made from natural sisal and hand-cut soap too. A beautifully considered edit to encourage a slower pace of life, filled with simple pleasures. Buy it here.


Alchemy Tea


Health And Wellbeing Gift Set, £35


A ‘cup of tea to fix all ills' is in the British DNA. Loose-leaf teas from Alchemy Tea are, however, actually blended as health tonics to fix a range of those maladies– including poor digestion, low energy, cold and flu, all while encouraging rest and recuperation. Complete with tea strainer and blended from a range of herbs and fruits, this set is a thoughtful, comforting gift for anyone in need of a restorative cuppa. Buy it here.


Neom


Clean, Nourish Sleep Routine, £95


Who wouldn’t benefit from the gift of sleep? Combining a nourishing night-time skincare routine with Neom’s Perfect Night’s Sleep cleansing balm and facial oil, which is rich in vitamins and natural botanical oils to nourish and repair overnight, the gift set also includes a pillow mist with lavender, chamomile and patchouli to send you off into a scented slumber. Buy it here.


Hazel and Blue


Calm And Cosy Soy Candle Making Kit, £28


What’s even better than a smelly candle? A kit to make your own. Hazel and Blue has combined all you need to blend your own aromatherapy candles at home, with cedarwood and geranium to create a cosy and calming aroma. With simple, easy-to-follow video tutorial instructions and everything weighed out ready for you to melt and pour, the kit is a great slow Sunday activity that you can enjoy all winter long. Buy it here.


Wellbox


Luxe Wellbeing Box, £60


When only the best will do… Wellbox’s Luxe offering includes fourteen wellness gifts, from relaxing bath salts to aromatherapy candles and oils, natural beauty and skincare as well as chocolates, inspiring affirmation cards and immune-supporting drinks.

Dept Store for the Mind


Sleep Well Bundle, £25


A whole online store dedicated to ‘beautiful objects for thoughtful people’, the Dept. Store for the Mind’s ’Sleep Well Bundle’ is a considered curation of books, words and sensory products, all with one aim in mind: to invite restful sleep. They also offer a kids’ version, too. Buy it here.


Marks and Spencer


Wellness Gift Box, £40


A great alternative to a bunch of flowers from M&S, the stalwart’s Wellness Gift Box includes comforting chamomile and Manuka honey tea; luxury dark chocolate; a trio of pulse point oils to aid calm, sleep and tranquillity; and an aromatherapy sleep candle and vegan truffles – all wrapped in a marble paper gift box.
