Nothing screams “holidays” like panicking over what to get your friends. Your family may be a bit easier to shop for — slippers for mom, a robe for dad, and gift cards for your siblings, but when it comes down to getting just the right present for your BFF, the pressure has never been higher. And when that friend just so happens to love all things health and wellness, you know there are only so many places that fit the bill of where a “self-care star” would shop.
But fear not. Before you throw in the towel, Homedics may be just what you need to feel like you’re getting your wellness-obsessed friend exactly what they want for the holidays. And better yet, they have gifts categorized into different price ranges so whether your budget is high, low, or mid-tier, you can easily find something without having to spend time looking at price tags. To help you get started, below, we’ve picked some holiday favorites that any wellness guru would love to find other the tree come Christmas morning. And if you’re feeling really generous, there’s no shame in splurging on a little something for yourself, too.
Gifts under $50
This lavender essential oil is soothing and relaxing, making it a great gift for your health-savvy friend, especially if they have trouble sleeping as it’s recommended to use before bed. Additionally, it blends well with many other essential oils, such as peppermint and lemon.
Help your friend treat their feet with this Bubble Mate Foot Spa. The massage water jets and raised nodes work to revive your feet, but the best part is it’s designed with a convenient toe-touch control so you can use your hands for something else like reading a book or applying a face mask.
This is a great gift for your BFF. With this gel eye mask, they can choose between three soothing heat intensity levels or use the removable cold gel pad out of the freezer for help with instant headache and tension relief – perfect for after a long day or just because.

The Cordless Shiatsu Massage Pillow with Heat is portable, soothing, and rechargeable, offering your BFF a deep-kneading shiatsu massage that feels like a real masseuse targeting their neck and shoulder muscles.

Is your wellness-obsessed friend also in love with all things skincare? If so then this is definitely the gift for them. The Radiance Microdermabrasion Exfoliation Device rejuvenates the skin through powerful mechanical exfoliation.

It’s safe and gentle for all skin types and makes the skincare routine that much better by diminishing fine lines, improving acne scarring, and more.

The holidays are a stressful time and everyone could use something to help relieve tension. Cue the Lumbar Lift Lower Back Stretcher and Massager.

With three massage programs and optional soothing heat, the 3-in-1 Pro Foot Massager with Heat is guaranteed to provide the ultimate massage experience.

Give your BFF the ultimate relief after a hard day with the Body Flex Back Stretching Mat with Heat.

It includes a removable memory foam pillow for neck support, three intensity levels, a carrying handle, and a programmed massager, plus integrated straps to help make folding and storage easy.
This statement is the ultimate decor staple your bestie would be lucky to have. The Homedics drift is a kinetic sand table with a metal sphere that rolls silently through the sand, carving mesmerizing patterns and creating mindful moments. It’s a perfect gift for someone looking to increase relaxation while giving their living space an extra pop.
The best thing about this high-intensity percussion massage is that it helps target muscle groups that need recovery the most – something your wellness-loving friend would appreciate.
